Texas Construction Company Uses EagleView to Increase Sales Closing Rate by 20 Percent

November 21st, 2011

Charles Terry, owner of Charles Terry Construction in Midland, TX, recalled when he first learned about EagleView two years ago. “Someone from EagleView called me to tell me about what it could do for my business, and I didn’t really understand how it could help, “explains Terry. His curiosity won out and he decided to give it a try.

Terry was impressed by the first EagleView report he received. “The diagrams, the measurements and the color photos were very professional,” he said. “I put that into my sales presentation for the homeowner and it was a slam dunk.” Terry recalls that he brought his presentation to the homeowner and saw that his competitors had dropped off single-page estimates. “The EagleView report made all the difference. It positioned us as a professional company and we got the sale. That by itself made EagleView worth using on every job.”

Charles Terry Construction has served the local market in the Midland – Odessa area for the past 30 years. Terry started out as a repairman in the roofing industry and built Charles Terry Construction into a million dollar plus construction business; he knows how to measure a roof. Using EagleView measurement reports is about much more than measurements for Terry.

“It gives me a huge advantage in many situations, “Terry said. He told of one time he received a call from a homeowner who was 80 miles away and did not want anyone coming to her home. “I told her I could give her an estimate over the phone and I would call her back in three hours.” Terry ordered an expedited EagleView report and was able to provide an accurate estimate the same day to the astonished homeowner.

Terry has seen an increase in his sales closing rate of about 20 percent that he attributes to incorporating the EagleView report into his sales process. “If people aren’t taking full advantage of the report and using it in their presentation and closing, they are missing the boat,” Terry said. “When you look at the cost of an EagleView compared to what it does for your business, its pennies on the dollar. You get back so much more in the end.”

Not only has he seen his sales closing rate increase but Terry also appreciates the fact that insurance companies accept EagleView reports as the independent, third-party standard. “I no longer have discrepancies with insurance companies; there is no arguing over whether the pitch is seven or eight or who’s measurements are correct. It has put us all on the same page.”

EagleView’s customer service department has stepped up to provide exceptional support to Terry when he needed it. The job was for a large apartment complex that had suffered storm damage. He ordered an EagleView report for the entire complex and prepared his bid from that. “The apartment complex manager had gotten another bid from two other companies that measured one building and assumed all the others were identical. He called me to tell me my bid was $90,000 under.” Even though Terry was confident that the EagleView measurements were accurate, he called on EagleView customer service to double check and verify. “They took the time to review everything in my order again to provide reassurance,” said Terry. “In this situation EagleView made me look like a shining star!”

In addition to ordering EagleView reports and growing his business, Terry is an avid supporter of the SPCA. He and his mascot, a Kerry Blue Terrier named Jewel, help out with many other community fundraising events, believing that it’s important for a successful company to support their local community.

Interactive Photo Editor Tool Added to EagleView® Mobile Apps

October 11th, 2011

EagleView Technologies, the leader in aerial roof measurements, has added a groundbreaking interactive photo editor tool to its mobile applications.  The first of its kind in the aerial measurement industry, the photo editor allows users to capture images of a property and mark areas of the photo with damage or weather icons, insert captions or finger draw to highlight a specific area of a photo.  Up to six annotated images can be uploaded and sequenced by the user to become part of the aerial measurement report that is prepared for the property.

“The ability for a contractor or insurance adjuster to take photos on site and immediately indicate areas of damage or concern is an exciting use of technology that will help them do their jobs more efficiently,“ said Heidi Ellsworth, Vice President Sales and Marketing for EagleView Technologies.  “Photos have been taken in the field for years, but the addition of notes had to wait until the contractor or adjuster returned to the office.  Now they can take the photos from their smart phone and add notes immediately.”

The photo editor is available now on EagleView’s Mobile App for Android™ and is anticipated to be released by October 24 for the iPhone® app.  Download the apps for free in the Android marketplace and iTunes store.

Embracing the Power of EagleView Reports

October 10th, 2011

When EagleView Technologies asked customers how EagleView aerial roof measurement reports have helped them in their business, the answers came fast and easily to Jeff Shaffer, operations manager for Alberson’s Tile Roof Glaze in Tampa, FL.

Alberson’s Tile Roof Glaze is a manufacturer and applicator of Hydro-Sheen™ products. Shaffer has a unique perspective because in addition to being an applicator, they also work with other contractors who are certified to apply their products.  “Every roofing contractor has their own way of measuring a roof and you end up with different measurements from each contractor on the same roof,” Shaffer said  “EagleView gives us consistent, accurate measurements every time.”

Accuracy is critical to Shaffer as his company travels throughout the state of Florida working on homes with tile roofs.  He turns to EagleView to eliminate the anxiety that can accompany hand measuring. “When you measure by hand, it’s easier to make an error.  Being under means you will lose money and being over means you will probably lose the job to someone else,” said Shaffer. He cited an example where a large roof was measured by two contractors with 40 years of experience in the industry; the measurements were both different with one being off by nine squares while the EagleView report was exact.

Another key benefit that Shaffer pointed out is the custom cover and professional report that is provided with each order.  “It’s a very clean, professional report that reinforces the perception of the client that you are knowledgeable and have the expertise required to complete their job, “ Shaffer explained.   He also uses the pdf as a part of the final agreement package that his company emails out to the client prior to starting the job. “The clients are very impressed and including the EagleView report really puts me in a whole different league.”

EagleView reports have helped Alberson’s Tile Roof Glaze save time and produce estimates faster. They have found cost savings by reducing the number of trips to a property and drastically cutting the time it takes to draw and calculate the numbers.  “It’s not just the mileage and insurance savings,” explained Shaffer, “it’s the fact that your estimators and sales people can be doing other, more productive things with their time.”
