The Insurance Industry’s Next Game-Changer?
Drones have actually been in service since the 19th century, and used for years by the armed forces for reconnaissance while the civil drone industry started developing rapidly only two years ago. Now drones are becoming increasingly common for domestic and commercial use due to their affordability and accessibility. The Association for unmanned vehicle systems International predicts that within 10 years, drones will create approximately 100,000 new jobs and around US$82 billion in economic activity. Equipped with new capabilities such as integrated audio and text with real-time video feeds and the ability to overlay images over existing footage through augmented reality, next-generation drones will have significant commercial value for businesses across various industry segments. Drones have already disrupted industries such as aerial photography and filming. Drones are much more versatile, easier to fly, and cost-efficient when compared to cranes, helicopters and airplanes.
Advantages for insurers
Insurance claim processing is often very complex. Natural disasters, property insurance, and crop insurance require accurate location research. The versatility of drones allows insurers to have complete aerial views, which means immediate survey of the damage or catastrophe for insurers, all done in a short time. The ability to take high-resolution videos and photos make drones the ideal solution for supplementing claims adjudication. It is also possible to zoom in to questionable areas and analyze details to understand the cause of loss, all without disturbing the scene.
Use of drones saves significant time, reduce operational costs, while improving the productivity and efficiency of claims adjusters. It will also improve the customer experience by resolving claims faster, especially during catastrophic events. Skyglyph’s special drone solution for crop insurance significantly reduces the time it takes to settle claims and avoid fraud.
Skyglyph partners with leading cloud storage providers. Their advanced options include EU hosted file sync and share SaaS incorporating end to end ‘hack proof’ 256 AES data encryptions. As a result Skyglyph technologies can be utilized in the most sensitive and demanding environments.
