Xactware EagleView release
March 5, 2009
EagleView and Xactware 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.
“We’re excited to have our detailed roof measurement reports embedded into Xactimate,” EagleView CEO Chris Barrow said. “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.”
Xactware users will be able to send measurement requests for a particular roof to EagleView from Xactimate. Using aerial photography and patent-pending software, EagleView accurately calculates measurements for the roof’s ridges, rafters, valleys, slopes and more.
Xactware users can then 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 2D and 3D. From there, users can graphically add shingles, ridge caps and other roofing material to the sketch. They can also graphically estimate costs to repair damages to complex roof structures.
The process saves contractors and roofers hours of time spent measuring and scoping a roof.
“This is the next logical step from Xactware as we continue to look for innovative ways to service the needs of our customers,” said Jim Loveland, CEO of Xactware. “EagleView provides key technology for insurance adjusters and service providers using our products within the reconstruction and remodeling industries.”
