EagleView® Technologies Provides Storm-ready Solutions for Emergency Management

July 9, 2014 No comments »

(Bothell, Wash., July 8, 2014) – EagleView Technologies, a leading technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions, continues to provide storm-ready solutions for emergency management with the fastest post-event imagery capture utilizing CriticalAccess and RapidAccess Technology.

 

A recognized leader in emergency management solutions for the utility, insurance and public safety verticals, EagleView has proven technologies for immediate post-catastrophe event imagery capture.  Throughout 2014, engineers and flight crews have worked with utilities running very successful emergency management drills utilizing the company’s CriticalAccess Technology.   The technology successfully enabled the capture of imagery during the emergency drills, delivering imagery just hours after the event to ground crews.  Utilizing a rugged Esri® ArcGIS server deployment within a specially designed Ground Receiving Unit (GRU), the test teams were able to use the Pictometry® Intelligent Images® to assess damage, deploy crews and repair damage immediately in these emergency drills.

 

In the past, insurance carriers and local and state governments have also used RapidAccess Technology to capture post-event imagery within days of an event.  With this technology emergency responders and catastrophe teams are able to gain visual intelligence that supports disaster recovery efforts and speeds the insurance claim adjusting process. RapidAccess Technology was engaged in 2013 when Moore, Okla., was hit hard by devastating tornados and again during the Boulder, Colo., floods.  Images were captured and delivered in a timeframe that allowed crews and adjusters to quickly assess the damage and focus their recovery efforts.

 

“The ability to capture images and provide visual intelligence is essential for rapid recovery after a catastrophic event,” stated Robert Locke, president of Pictometry Government Solutions.  “We are committed to flying every major event and having images available directly afterward. We are focused on constant development of improved aerial image capture, leading-edge software solutions and the fastest and most scalable operations available today.”

 

“We offer the fastest capture of real-time, high-resolution imagery for post event review and evaluation,” continued Rishi Daga, EVP Commercial Sales for EagleView Technologies.  “As we are currently providing imagery and measurement for the violent storms in the Midwest, we are also preparing our flight teams for hurricane season.  We understand that for insurance, utilities, government agencies and emergency responders the imagery is critical in responding and helping communities recover quickly from catastrophic events.”

EagleView® Technologies Announces Extended Coverage Technology for QuickSquares™ Reports

June 27, 2014 No comments »

(BOTHELL, Wash., June 26, 2014) – EagleView Technologies, a leading technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions, announces that its Extended Coverage Technology will now be available for the recently released QuickSquares Report that delivers in about an hour for fast estimating.

 

First introduced in 2012, EagleView’s Extended Coverage Technology was developed to meet the demand for greater geographic coverage for the company’s PremiumReports, allowing reports to be generated for properties that previously were considered unmeasurable.  Extending this technology to the QuickSquares Report was driven by customer requests who have come to rely on the speed of the reports and the professional presentation format as a part of their standard processing of leads and sales calls.

 

“So many contractors have incorporated QuickSquares Reports into their everyday sales and marketing processes that in cases when a report couldn’t be delivered due to image obstructions or other limitations, their sales processes would grind to a halt,” explained Rishi Daga, EagleView executive vice president of commercial sales.

 

Incorporating the technology will be seamless for customers.  “In the rare occurrence when a property’s images may be questionable or obscured, rather than canceling the order the customer will automatically receive the QuickSquares Report that was created utilizing the Extended Coverage Technology,” said Daga.

 

The QuickSquares product provides an easy price point for roofing contractors to quickly obtain an overall square count for residential roofs.  It works in conjunction with the entire EagleView suite of solutions offering an easy means to upgrade to an EagleView Premium report when more detail is required for ordering materials and production planning after winning the job.

The QuickSquares report is proving to be an excellent sales and marketing tool for roofing sales teams and provides an easy price point for roofing contractors to quickly obtain an overall square count for residential roofs.  Brian McSteen, managing partner at McAllen Valley Roofing, based in McAllen, Texas, said, “We order this report on every single lead that comes in.  The speed of the report allows us to tell the customer the same day what the roof is going to cost.”

 

The mobile app and QuickSquares Report provides the ability to deliver a strong estimate quickly.  “This app is so easy that sales teams can order on the go within the neighborhood as they are working it,” said Daga.  “The upgrade button provides the speed and accuracy needed for the entire roofing process. As we continue to deliver technology that automates workflows and helps to increase sales, we strive to create very easy and efficient ways of delivering what the contractor needs when they need it.  The QuickSquares Report ordered through this new app is a game changer for roofing sales representatives.”

EagleView It! at Your Next Home Show by using QuickSquares™ to bring them in and bring them back!

May 16, 2014 No comments »

EagleView continues to push the use of technology in sales and marketing.  Contractors spend thousands of dollars every year at tradeshows, conferences, county fairs and open houses.  In talking to a couple of EagleView roofing contractors they have found that technology at their customer events is powerful.  So we would suggest at your next home show, offer an initial estimate in your booth within an hour by using QuickSquares and gain double exposure by having homeowners returning to your booth!

Why QuickSquares?  First it is a great value with delivery under an hour at $18.00 it fits any contractor’s marketing budget or timeline.  Second, to put together that first approximate estimate to gain the homeowner’s attention, all that is needed is just the squares and predominant pitch.  With QuickSquares you can figure a quick estimate and provide an impressive take away at your next event. Here are some ideas that may work for you:

  • Offer attendees a personalized aerial view of their home and initial estimate at no cost with a QuickSquares Report custom cover page.
  • Create an initial estimate within an hour, while at the show, using the information provided in the QuickSquares Report.
  • Obtain qualifying information including name, address, phone and email through the process of ordering a QuickSquares Report.
  • Gain double exposure by inviting homeowners back to the booth in an hour to pick up their estimate and aerial photo of their home which includes your company logo and contact information (you will need a printer in the booth).
  • Promote your company with the customized QuickSquares cover page featuring your company information and an aerial photo of their home. Receive a second page with the total squares and predominant pitch to help develop the rough estimate.
  • Schedule a time for the home inspection and follow-up meeting when you hand over the aerial photo and estimate.

Consider promoting all of this before, during and after the home show through traditional advertising, social media and word of mouth.
