West Bend Insurance Partners with Plnar to Empower Policyholders and Field Adjusters w/Contactless Virtual Inspections

WEST BEND, WI and AUSTIN, TX, USA, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — West Bend Insurance today announced a new integration that empowers policyholders with the ability to document their interior property claim easily, in less than 2 minutes per room. Plnar’s artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality enhances claims adjusting by providing field adjusters and policyholders the ability to create onsite estimates simply by taking photos of a room with the Snap app – available on both Android and iOS mobile devices.

Through this integration, adjusters receive 3-D diagrams of loss sites that have been automatically created by Plnar using photos uploaded from the insured or adjuster’s smart devices. These highly detailed, interactive digital diagrams of interior structures automatically and seamlessly import into Xactimate to help adjusters quickly estimate repair costs without having to manually sketch the loss site.

The use of Plnar has expedited my claims turnaround times and allowed West Bend adjusters to produce accurate estimates to insureds and contractors. I have found measurements to be within one inch of contractor’s measurements and completed in half the amount of time that it takes a contractor to laser measure” said Scott Thomas, West Bend Insurance Director of Claims. “Our adjuster’s Plnar sketch is completed by the time they arrive home from an inspection. The incorporation of Plnar into our adjusting process has taken West Bend to the next level providing service to our policyholders. The most notable reason why I find it so valuable, is that in today’s world, where people expect rapid delivery, I am able to fulfill that expectation!

Plnar combines the latest in AI and augmented reality with technology that is becoming available in every household: smart devices,” said Andy Greff, CEO of Plnar. “Plnar’s platform streamlines interior property claims for adjusters and claimants alike by enabling a self-service, digital claims process. By equipping field adjusters with Plnar, West Bend can dramatically shorten cycle times and provide policyholders with first- class claims service.

Plymouth Rock Offers Contactless Virtual Home Inspections to Policyholders via Plnar

Plymouth Rock Offers Contactless Virtual Home Inspections to Policyholders via Plnar

BOSTON, MA and AUSTIN, TX, USA, November 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Plymouth Rock Home Assurance Corporation today announced a new integration into Plymouth Rock’s claims process that uses Plnar’s artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality to enhance virtual claims adjusting. This integration empowers adjusters to virtually be at the loss site as a policyholder submits their claim, capturing critical claim information at the beginning of the claim process and enabling a true Self-Service claims experience.

Through this new integration, desk adjusters receive high resolution photos and 3-D diagrams of loss sites that have been automatically created by Plnar using photos uploaded from the policyholder’s smart devices. These highly detailed, photos and interactive digital diagrams of interior structures automatically and seamlessly import into claims estimating platforms to help adjusters quickly estimate repair costs without having to physically visit the loss site.

As Plymouth Rock Home’s Vice President of Claims Andrew Leeds puts it, “At Plymouth Rock, we’re always looking for ways to help our customers recover from their losses faster. In the past we’ve relied on physical inspections to gather the scope of loss and measurements of customers’ physical space. But, getting adjusters to customers’ homes takes time and isn’t the most convenient process for our customers who have busy lives. With PLNAR, customers can gather the same information – with a high degree of precision – when it’s convenient for them. In many cases this means cutting the claim cycle time from days to hours. Everyone wins.”

The Plnar Snap app minimizes health risks and reduces travel expenses by eliminating the need to make an in-person home visit for certain types of claims.

Plnar combines the latest in AI and augmented reality with technology that is becoming available in every household: smart devices,” said Andy Greff, CEO of Plnar. “Plnar’s platform streamlines interior property claims for adjusters and claimants alike by enabling a self-service, digital claims process. By integrating Plnar in Plymouth Rock’s claim system, desk adjusters can virtually be at loss sites within minutes of the first notice of loss, dramatically shortening cycle times and providing policyholders with first-class claims service.” .
