Technology is creating opportunities for insurers and contractors to consolidate resources for all parties to a claim. While many claims professionals are familiar with the concept of 360-degree scan and/or photographing technologies, I meet many who do not know how to utilize these resources. My goal with this article is to share how 360 scanning can help expedite claims collaboration.
Expedite claims collaboration with technology
In property damage claims, thorough data capture is essential. We know that a picture speaks a thousand words, so what is the value of a 360 capture that can be reviewed by anyone with access? All claims professionals are familiar with the awful feeling when they don’t have the one picture that they need to support a claim-related item. With the tools I mentioned, you can take a screenshot of any area in question that was not previously captured. If an adjuster and a contractor are negotiating a claim, they can both access the scanning resource and discuss claims items with the benefit of a three-dimensional room-by-room review.

If your goal is to work on property insurance claims you will need to familiarize yourself with an estimating platform called Xactimate. The DYOJO Podcast has created The Xactiamte Sessions, a new multi-part audio/video series, to help reduce some of the fear and misconceptions around this estimating data-entry software. Whether you have a company that focuses on:
Whatever your area of core service, Xactimate has become the primary tool for creating estimates in the preferred "language" for insurance carriers and their representatives, such as adjusters, third-party administrators (TPAs), claims reviewers, etc. The team that brought you Be Intentional: Estimating, the book which discusses means and methods for developing the right mindset and habits for yourself and your team to succeed with estimating property insurance claims, is now releasing this series, The Xactimate Sessions designed to build upon those foundations to help you thrive.
Who will benefit most from watching the Xactimate sessions on The DYOJO Youtube or listening to the audio version via The DYOJO Podcast on Spotify or Apple? Great question.
Xactimate is a tool and our goal is to help you shorten your DANG learning curve with this particular tool. We have assembled guests with diverse perspectives and experiences to share the mindset and habits that have aided them in mastering this tool in their daily operations. The DYOJO Nation will benefit from the sage advice they receive from:
Building from the success and reception for Benchmarks of Growth six-part series which The DYOJO Podcast produced earlier this year, the team will be releasing these multi-part Xactimate Sessions weekly over the next few months. Viewers and listeners will receive a great deal of value from the mindset and habits that have helped our guests as well as some deals from the participating vendors and sponsors of the show. Listeners are encouraged to leave comments and/or questions on any of the social media platforms including Youtube, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram so that the discussion can evolve in relationship to need as the episodes drop.
The DYOJO Podcast, the official home of The DYOJO Nation as so declared by The Global Watchdog, Pete Consigli, exists to help intentional restorers to shorten their DANG learning curve for personal and professional development.

Restoration Industry Association Convention
June 28-30, 2021
Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
Books by property restoration professionals for skilled trades, carpet cleaning, and insurance claims professionals, The DYOJO Podcast suggested reading list for January to keep your momentum for 2021. The key to becoming an Intentional Restorer is to train your mindset and your habits daily; this is The DYOJO Way. Thankfully we have so many great resources, including these titles from professionals within our industry as well as podcasts for and by property restoration entrepreneurs.
The ServiceMaster Story by Albert M. Erisman
Al does a masterful job of walking the reader through the early years of the development of the ServiceMaster company as an organization built on core principles lived out by five generations of leaders. Mr. Erisman's work is enlightening for any business leader who desires to build a company that is profitable while still grounded in their principles. I thought found two key principles that would benefit modern restorers: 1) the shingle principle of leadership, where managers understand their role as complimenting those who come before as well as after them; 2) having new leaders work in the field with their team members prior to assuming their executive roles. This is something we talk about in Be Intentional: Culture as well with regards to Ted McCarthy and the resurrection of Gibson Guitars. Erisman discusses how those in a position of leadership at ServiceMaster were able to navigate The Tension Between People and Profit.
We Did It Their Way by Wm. F. Bane
Wm. F. (Bill) Bane tells the story of his family’s rise from obscurity to a position of prominence in the cleaning industry and how the family parlayed a twenty-dollar investment into a multi-million dollar business. This book is a compendium of some of his life’s adventures including thirty-five years in the cleaning profession. It is a step-by-step diagram of the path followed by the organization of the family business and the development of a unique cleaning system. The trials and tribulations associated with a new business are outlined in a sometimes humorous, but always realistic and truthful way.
When Words Collide by Bill Wilson
Bill Wilson presents the process for resolving insurance coverage claims and disputes. He emphasizes understanding the policy as the authority and encourages the commitment of all parities to finding a reasonable resolution. David Princeton joined The DYOJO Podcast to co-host our discussion with Mr. Wilson. As David wisely encouraged our audience, learn to effectively communicate your "because" when outlining your recommendations to the insured and the carrier. Understanding the policy and properly interpreting the policy, as it relates to unique claims situations, has been the career long passion of author Bill Wilson. In the book and our discussion, all professionals are reminded to "RTFP" which includes knowing what you are selling, being clear with your communications, and being reasonable with your interpretations.
