    Before a subscription to IntegriClaim expires, I'd like to export / save some general macros I created this AM.  Can I ask for help on how to do this? 

    I have exported claim files to a subdirectory for future reference, and that was no problem, and I also have tried to export system settings, but that did not seem to work, but I am not sure that was the right place anyway.  Thanks much.

    As I recall you can create a claim file and copy the macro into it.  Then export the claim to a subdirectory. 

    I've had macros emailed to me that were created that way.  I've never actually done it myself.

    Thanks.  I checked this morning after a short training subscription expired.  Now the program rolls into evaluation mode, and I can still access prior claim files (which I had backed up), and the macros are still enabled there.  I don't know that I really have to uninstall / reinstall the program, but I can only use the program for 30 minutes at a crack when its in evaluation mode.  Thanks again.   Frankly, I still like X-mate better.

    I think this industry will change a lot in the next two years. Seems all  programs for estimating are using architecture that is 20 years behind time. I hear about camera's that are not on the market that can take a photo and measure the distance, just put the card in the computer and the scope is printed and estimated. I will go to Crawfords site today that will have the president of exactimate, Crawford and Met Life and Casulty, explaining the future with using contractors on the majority of property claims of all types.Technology is here now to replace roof thumpers.  I did not say adjusters, but the new breed of adjusters will be much better trained and educated.

    Agreed entirely. I would say 5 years, but the train is coming. I would also venture that the new top-end disto is getting close to a new platform (like Larry said) since it has a graphic viewer as well as laser measuring technology along with the blue tooth part to do data transfer. Then there is Eagle View type of satellite technology. I think these technologies will result in broad-reaching changes that are tough to foresee now.

    But ultimately, since much damage evaluation requires judgment and a brain, I doubt the human element will ever be out of the equation, though it could be minimized. Like any profession in flux, adjusters will have to be able to dance faster than the music. All of this technology and standardization also allows for closer overall scrutiny (by carriers of vendors, by vendors of adjusters - it all flows downhill), and this increases the non-adjusting workload and expectations. Tough changes ahead for those who do not embrace technology.
