Loveland Innovations’ new IMGING inspection kit is now ready to be used by insurance adjusters and contractors deploying unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
The kit includes drone hardware, IMGING software, IMGING training and access to online Part 107 training from Drone Pilot Ground School. Each kit is also backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee, the company notes.
“The thought of using drones is a bit intimidating for some people. Using this kit, anyone from seasoned adjuster to new roofing contractors can become a licensed drone pilot and be flying in less than a week,” says Jim Loveland, CEO and founder of Loveland Innovations. “And if you already have your Remote Pilot Certificate, you can be up and flying within a few minutes of receiving the kit.”
The hardware in the kit includes a drone, a controller, a dedicated tablet and other accessories. The IMGING software is accessible on the Web and is also installed on the included tablet. It allows users to create and manage jobs, generate and execute flight plans for autonomous inspections, and review and annotate detailed imagery, says Loveland.
“As we’ve collected feedback, we found that most available drone solutions are very pricey, which makes them difficult to adopt and roll out to fleets of inspectors. Worst of all, they aren’t made for the insurance industry,” adds Loveland. “That all changes today with this new kit. We ensured that the entire IMGING experience is built with insurance workflows in mind first and foremost. We love to keep things simple, and we knew a kit would be the best way to deliver the insurance industry our technology in a user-friendly way.”
