Drones Slash Crop Insurance Adjuster Time, Boost Confidence
This summer after the derecho event in Iowa and Illinois, the team at RCIS and Zurich assembled a cadre of 19 people to go out and address the damage claims.
In a six day period, the team covered 52,000 acres.
What enabled the speed and effectiveness for the RCIS team is their growing use of drones.
Forty-two crop adjusters at RCIS are also drone pilots and regularly assess claims by using aerial imagery they fly themselves. And the company is looking to add to that success by adding another 30 adjusters who use drones.
The company has found two distinct benefits to deploying drones in its business: efficiency in addressing claims and building customer confidence.
