EagleView Technologies and Xactware Solutions team up

March 5, 2009
WOODINVILLE, WA — EagleView Technologies and Xactware Solutions Inc. are teaming up to offer insurance adjusters, contractors and roofers a streamlined method to quickly generate roof sketches, according to a press release.
The companies announced a new technology integration that will allow Xactware customers to access EagleView’s breakthrough roof measurement capabilities via XactAnalysis — the Property industry’s foremost network for sending and receiving structural and contents estimates; the agreement will enable insurance adjusters and roofers to automatically create detailed roofs in Xactimate as part of the everyday claims process, the release stated.
EagleView CEO Chris Barrow said: "We’re excited to have our detailed roof measurement reports embedded into Xactimate. Many of our current customers have been asking for this functionality. This will provide seamless access to our reports for insurance companies and adjusters who use the industry-leading Xactware product line."
Using aerial photography and patent-pending software, EagleView accurately calculates measurements for the roof’s ridges, rafters, valleys, slopes and more, the release noted.
Xactware users can take advantage of the new technology integration to electronically import the roof measurements into the Xactimate Sketch module and view the completed roof layout in both 2-D and 3-D and graphically estimate costs to repair damages to complex roof structures, the release added.
According to the release, the process saves contractors and roofers hours of time spent measuring and scoping a roof.
