EagleView App Update Expands Beyond Roof Measurement Reports

EagleView Technologies has released its newest update to the EagleView App, available for download on both the iOS App Store and on Google Play. The new EagleView App features include automated quoting for job estimates as well as an interactive 3D visualizer enabling a 360-degree view of the property.

The EagleView App is currently used to order, view order status, and access property measurement reports anytime, anywhere. With this new update, users can now take the guesswork out of estimating by setting customized job cost and pricing preferences, and generating an automated quote for every report order placed.

“With every update we make to our technology and offerings, we continue to revolutionize the roofing industry,” stated EagleView CEO Rishi Daga. “The addition of automated quoting gives our customers the ability to take time-consuming manual processes out of the bidding stage so that they can focus on customer experience instead.”

In addition to the automated quoting feature, the EagleView App now offers users an interactive 3D visualizer. This visualizer allows roofers to see the property and its measurements in a three-dimensional model. Users can pinch, expand and rotate the property image for a complete view.

The EagleView App is available for update on the iOS App Store and for download on Google Play. EagleView will continue to release additional updates to the EagleView App for both iOS and Android users.

Three More Companies Join NRCA’s One Voice Initiative

The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) announced that three more companies have recently joined NRCA’s One Voice initiative, upgrading their associate memberships to become “partner members” in the process.
The organizations are Beacon Roofing Supply Inc., Herndon, Virginia; EagleView Technologies Inc., Bothell, Washington; and Malarkey Roofing Products, Portland, Oregon.
In 2017, NRCA launched its One Voice Initiative to unite the roofing industry and speak with one voice about matters critical to the roofing industry’s continued success. To ensure all industry sectors are given an opportunity to participate, NRCA amended its bylaws to allow manufacturers, distributors, architects, engineers, and consultants that choose to participate to become full members of the association, granting them voting rights and eligibility for leadership roles within the association. Previously, such rights were reserved for contractor members only.
“NRCA’s One Voice Initiative offers a unique opportunity for the roofing industry to address the major issues we face. However, our work can only be accomplished with commitments from leaders from all sectors of this great industry,” said Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “Only together as a roofing community can we take this transformational approach to address our issues and concerns and achieve success in the future.”

SRS Distribution Enables Digital Business Using Contractor Applications

SRS Distribution Inc. announced the company has reached agreement with top contractor applications to enable real-time pricing and electronic order transmission for its loyal base of professional contractor customers using an Application Programming Interface (API).

“Innovation is key to the SRS culture and growth plans, and by enabling APIs that communicate directly with our industry leading distribution platform, we take our first step towards digitizing the contractor experience,” commented Sonya Wells, Senior Vice President of Information Services for SRS Distribution.

According to the company, integration will initially focus on providing professional contractors the ability to submit orders directly from each respective application, but will soon expand to other capabilities, such as real-time delivery tracking, scheduling, hotshot pickups and product availability.

“We recognize the unique value that each of our partners bring to our customer base, and by enabling these digital capabilities, we enrich and complete the end-to-end solution that each contractor application provides. We envision the contractor will estimate, price, order, and soon, track deliveries on the application of their choice.” said Patrick Garcia, Vice President of Innovation and Technology Adoption for SRS Distribution.

“JobProgress, iRoofing, JobNimbus, Xactware, EagleView, Core Logic, One Click Contractor and CutterCroix are among the select contractor applications that have chosen to align with SRS and will be the first to participate in this digital initiative. Co-development will simultaneously commence in June 2018 and target release date will be determined by each respective participant,” Garcia added.

“We have learned a lot through our existing partnership with EagleView Technology’s EagleView Construct software and we are excited to expand on that capability as we seek to make our entire family of companies easier to do business with,” Wells said.

Verisk Analytics Expands Its Position in the Aerial Imagery Market through Acquisition of EagleView Technologies

Verisk Analytics Inc., a source of information about risk, has signed an agreement to acquire EagleView Technology (EVT) Corp., the parent company of Pictometry International Corp., and EagleView Technologies Inc. EVT is a provider in the United States of geo-referenced aerial image capture and visual-centric data analytics and solutions to insurers, contractors, government and commercial customers. The acquisition will accelerate Verisk’s position as a provider of data, analytics and decision support solutions based on aerial imagery.

Based in Rochester, N.Y., and Bothell, Wash., EVT was formed in January 2013 as a result of a combination of Pictometry International Corp., and EagleView Technologies Inc. The combined company maintains one of the most comprehensive image libraries, covering more than 85 percent of the U.S. population, more than 1 million square miles, and approximately 90 percent of total U.S. structures. EVT leverages this image library to provide proprietary solutions to property and casualty insurance, government, and a variety of other commercial markets. EVT has developed unique technology for image capture and processing, enabling understanding of physical property characteristics that can be used for valuation and risk management. With more than 24 petabytes of imagery-related data, EVT has established itself at the forefront of the market.

“The acquisition of EVT advances our position in the imagery analytics market, adding new municipal and commercial customers. The transaction supports the aerial imagery solution development that has been under way at our Xactware unit,” says Scott Stephenson, president and CEO of Verisk Analytics. “We believe we can build on the comprehensive coverage of EVT’s library to expand solutions to our customers, including underwriting and, over time, international solutions as well. We look forward to combining the strong business built by the EVT team with Verisk’s analytical capabilities and unparalleled customer relationships in the property/casualty insurance market.”

Jim Loveland, president and CEO of Verisk’s Xactware business, added, “We’re excited to welcome our new colleagues to the Verisk family and look forward to integrating their substantial knowledge and experience in imagery with our own. This acquisition will allow us to enhance our existing claims and underwriting software tools and expand the solutions we can offer to our existing property/casualty customers. We also intend to enhance solutions that EVT is currently providing to the municipal, government, and other commercial markets.”

“This combination is a natural culmination of the businesses we’ve built over the years and a win for our customers and employees,” said Chris Barrow, CEO of EVT. “Our teams stand ready to build on the strength of our existing solutions with the benefit of Verisk’s analytic expertise, customer relationships, and financial resources.”

The purchase price is $650 million to be paid in cash to stockholders of EVT. Verisk expects to receive approximately $25 million in tax benefits as part of the transaction. In addition, Verisk will reduce the cash payment by approximately $13 million to reflect an existing minority equity ownership in EVT. The transaction is expected to close by July 15, 2014, subject to the completion of customary closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory and shareholder approvals. Verisk expects to use cash on hand and available capacity under its revolving credit facility to fund the purchase. The transaction is expected to be neutral to adjusted EPS in 2014.
