New purpose-built IMGING kit combines hardware, software, and training to make large-scale adoption easy for anyone
ALPINE, Utah – September 6, 2017 – Loveland Innovations® today announced the availability of the all new IMGING™ Inspection Kit, which makes drone inspections both affordable and as simple as possible for insurance adjusters and contractors.
Inside the kit is everything a user needs to start with drone inspections, including hardware, best-of-breed IMGING software, IMGING training, and access to robust online Part 107 training from Drone Pilot Ground School™. Each kit is also backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee*, so there’s no risk to new users looking to try it.
The new kit represents an evolution in Loveland Innovation’s ability to deliver its insurance-first drone solution, IMGING, and puts the industry significantly closer to a day where drones are an essential tool for each insurance professional.
“The thought of using drones is a bit intimidating for some people. Using this kit, anyone from seasoned adjuster to new roofing contractors can become a licensed drone pilot and be flying in less than a week,” says Jim Loveland, CEO and Founder of Loveland Innovations. “And if you already have your Remote Pilot Certificate, you can be up and flying within a few minutes of receiving the kit.”
Loveland also notes that although drones are getting a lot of attention, many people aren’t sure if now is the time to start using them. “They have questions about price, how good the hardware is, and whether the regulations are too cumbersome. This kit addresses all these things and proves that now is absolutely the right time to start using drones.”
The hardware in the kit includes a drone, a controller, a dedicated tablet, and other important accessories. The IMGING software is accessible on the web and is also installed on the included tablet. It allows users to create and manage jobs, generate and execute flight plans for autonomous inspections, and review and annotate detailed imagery. And in order to give new pilots all the knowledge they need to fly safely and effectively, the kit includes training resources that cover how to perform inspections using IMGING as well as access to Drone Pilot Ground School, an online test prep course that efficiently prepares its students to pass the FAA Part 107 exam and obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate.
By bundling each piece of this kit together, Loveland Innovations makes it easier for insurance professionals to use drones to perform better, safer and faster inspections. As Loveland points out, it’s also the very first solution on the market built for the unique needs of the insurance industry.
“As we’ve collected feedback, we found that most available drone solutions are very pricey, which makes them difficult to adopt and roll out to fleets of inspectors. Worst of all, they aren’t made for the insurance industry,” says Loveland. “That all changes today with this new kit. We ensured that the entire IMGING experience is built with insurance workflows in mind first and foremost. We love to keep things simple, and we knew a kit would be the best way to deliver the insurance industry our awesome technology in a user-friendly way.”
