MyAdjustiMate - App for Independent Adjusters

MyAdjustiMate - App for Independent Adjusters

Imagine you are an assessor or an adjuster working for an insurance company deployed to an hurricane ravaged part of the country. Your job is to record the conditions of the site, mostly buildings - residential and commercial, assess the damage and report back the inspections in a formatted manner to the insurance company.


Each site could take about an hour to fully inspect - take relevant pictures of the site, note down particulars of the damage, etc., What kind of tool do you think you would need to efficiently collect all the information about the site? Enter 'myAdjustiMate' app.


You see, today, without this specialized app, inspectors would rely solely on their device cameras to take pictures of the site and as we all know, the camera stores all the files in a roll sorted by time with file names that's not human readable. 'myAdjustiMate' app solves all that problem by archiving pictures that the inspectors take in a manner that is easy and super efficient to be directly uploaded to reporting softwares such as Xactimate, etc.,


'myAdjustiMate' was designed by and built for inspectors specifically to effectively navigate through all parts of the site with a unique user interface that allows you to work with one hand while keeping the other hand free to hold onto a ladder on the job or something. 'myAdjustiMate' app sorts pictures based on priorities, archives pictures in logical folders, names the pictures with human readable appropriate file names and provides damage annotation capabilities. And if you forgot to take one more picture of a certain location of the site, then don't worry - you gave back and take that picture and the app will intelligently archive it in the right folder than pushing to the end of camera roll.


The best part of 'myAdjustiMate' app is that transferring files from your mobile device to the report generation software is a breeze and thus saving you time and money. You could literally get a report with 100+ pictures done and submitted in less than 10 minutes which could otherwise take 40 to 50 minutes.
