UAVs for insurance providers
Data acquisition for insurance
Conducting inspections is a standard procedure in the insurance industry, both at the commercial and individual level. They allow the insurer to collect data about a property or assets, thereby providing clients with the guarantees they need to protect their properties. In some cases, inspections also enable the insurer to determine the risks that may lead to a claim. Drone photography is generally used to document files, take pictures from a certain height and over large areas, and facilitate the interpretation of reports.
The UAV is an effective tool for claims processing, including post-event documentation:
Damage caused by hurricanes, earthquakes, other incidents;
Natural disasters (landslides, rockfalls)
DroneXperts can support insurers in the integration of a UAV program or purchase of equipment and training.
Using UAV technologies, we offer image capture, data collection and processing services for insurers. We also rent and sell UAVs as well as provide pilot training and data processing software (Pix4D).
