Impact of inaccurate documentation

Accurate documentation is crucial for you to assess the extent of the damage or loss. However, as you know there can be risks and challenges in gathering the details and documentation manually. It can delay the claim settlement process, creating complications in determining the coverage, and in some cases sparking disputes between the parties involved. Moreover, inadequate documentation can result in underpayment or denial of claims, leaving the policyholder with the burden of covering the costs themselves. As a professional, it’s imperative to ensure accurate and thorough documentation to avoid these consequences and expedite the claim process.

Benefits of using iGUIDE for accurate documentation

Digital measurements: iGUIDE uses state-of-the-art lidar laser scanning technology to capture precise measurements of space. By utilizing a laser, iGUIDE can create a highly accurate representation of the physical dimensions of a property. This eliminates the need for manual measurements, reducing the margin of error and ensuring that all measurements are consistently precise.

Floor Plans: With iGUIDE, creating detailed floor plans has never been easier. The laser scanning technology accurately captures the layout of a space, including walls, doors, windows and other architectural features. The result is a comprehensive floor plan that accurately represents the dimensions and layout of the property. This is especially beneficial for real estate agents and claims and restoration professionals who require accurate floor plans for insurance claims.

Virtual tours: iGUIDE takes documentation to the next level by offering immersive virtual tours. Using a combination of high-resolution panoramic photography, iGUIDE creates a realistic and interactive virtual tour experience. Users can navigate through a property, exploring every room and space with ease. This is particularly valuable when you need to reference the state of the property at a point in time.

Data integration: iGUIDE seamlessly integrates with other software and platforms, making it easy to export and share data. The captured measurements, floor plans and virtual tours can be easily accessed and shared with clients, colleagues or other stakeholders. This streamlines the documentation process and improves collaboration, saving time and effort.

Accuracy and reliability: iGUIDE is renowned for its accuracy and reliability. The laser scanning technology ensures that measurements and floor plans are consistently precise, eliminating the potential for human error. This level of accuracy is crucial, especially in industries such as real estate and architecture, where accurate documentation is essential for decision-making and planning.

Real example

Here is what David recently said about the iGUIDE camera system:

“Groundbreaking new equipment for fire scene documentation!

The unit is light and compact. It fits easily on the plane for travel. The system works well in low light conditions and provides high-quality panos of the scene.

The software allows me to download the panos and secure them, they are not left on a server somewhere that I have to pay for access to again. The customer service is excellent. The unit is small and scans well in the dark and irregular environment of the fire scenes we encounter.

There is some learning curve on using the stitch software to line up the IR scans, but… this is easily overcome by watching the training videos provided.”
