Kespry steps up roof assessment process to trim time for insurers


Kespry, one of the leading drone-based aerial intelligence solution providers, has ramped up its roof assessment process in order to offer a more time-efficient solution for insurance providers.

The American organisation has announced new capabilities designed to significantly accelerate the assessment of roof hail and wind damage for commercial buildings, as well as residential and multi-family properties.

Kespry’s newly-launched capabilities include on-site processing of drone-captured roof inspection data, a Virtual Test Square (VTS) to support claims decision-making in minutes, and enhanced automated hail detection, driven by machine learning.

Equipped with the updated Kespry solution, insurance adjusters can now make claims settlement decisions in as little as an hour.

“For insurance carriers and their clients, the faster an accurate roof damage assessment can happen, the better. Touchless claims will rapidly become the industry standard,” said George Mathew, CEO and chairman, Kespry.

He commented: “Until now, they’ve been forced to rely on slow and dangerous manual assessments or earlier-generation drone inspections that can take hours to process. Kespry’s ability to enable insurance carriers to make claims decisions in as little as an hour and provide more accurate automated damage detection will dramatically lower the cost of claims processes and improve customer satisfaction.”

Jim Grabowski, loss recovery specialist at Frontline Insurance, added: “Kespry allows me to more efficiently and safely evaluate and measure a greater number of roofs on a daily basis.

“I no longer have to scale ladders, chalk the roof or walk the edges of the roof pulling tapes. I just fly the drone. Using the Kespry drone eliminates the fatigue factor and improves our ability to professionally inspect property damage claims.”
