DropIn Inc.’s insurance customers can now order on-demand, live-streaming drone video of properties, which will be assessed via the DropIn iOS app.
Los Angeles-based DropIn provides live video and still image capture via drones and smartphones for the property and casualty insurance and automotive industries. Now, the company is offering mobile-to-mobile (M2M) access to on-demand video.
“Never before have key stakeholders in the insurance process had the ability to order drone video exactly at the first notice of loss or when a new business application needs to be processed in real time,” says Louis Ziskin, CEO of DropIn. “The DropIn mobile app puts our insurance customers in control by enabling drone live video to be ordered and viewed on a mobile-to-mobile basis.”
According to DropIn, the technology allows insurers to better manage underwriting evaluation and claim adjustment processes. Insurers can order image capture through DropIn’s crowdsourced network of independent operators (Droperators), dispatch an adjuster for image capture, or rely on an internal or external adjuster to order drone footage in the field.
