Livegenic to deliver Live Video Collaboration with Infrared Capabilities to Insurance Market via integration with the flagship Cat® S60 rugged smartphone
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Livegenic®, a global provider of cloud-based, real-time video solutions to property and casualty (P&C) insurance organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with specialized mobile device manufacturer Bullitt Group. The partnership integrates Livegenic's Real-time Collaboration Platform with Bullitt Group’s award-winning Cat® S60 mobile phone, the world’s first smartphone with an integrated thermal imaging camera.
Livegenic combines the best in-pocket solution to address insurance operation challenges that can be streamlined by improving the efficiency of field operations within insurance claim documentation in fire or water loss claims, as well as helping assess and visualize risks within loss control and underwriting scenarios.
Livegenic’s award-winning suite of real-time video collaboration and field loss documentation solutions are the first to make live video collaboration available with integrated infrared capabilities provided by the embedded thermal camera on the Cat S60 rugged smartphone, ideal for insurance organizations. Making the Cat S60 Android device available in the field provides inside adjusters the ability to collaborate live with field crews at the earliest possible time after the claim is reported to see and capture the full extent of the damage remotely via infrared video streaming.
“The insurance industry has seen a trend of water loss claims severity doubling in the past few years due to the claims involving water, leakage, and moisture that remains hidden during documentation,” said CEO of Livegenic, Alex Polyakov. “Deploying the combination of best in class mobile device capabilities with Livegenic’s powerful field collaboration and loss documentation solutions to the field adjusting workforce or within the fire and water remediation network provides insurance organizations a tremendous opportunity to improve the accuracy and scope of damage assessments.”
“This partnership is a great example of delivering game changing innovation to those customers who need it most,” said Eliana Santos, VP of Business Development at Bullitt Group. “We are proud to partner with Livegenic to make state of the art mobile capabilities available. The ability to use real time thermal imaging and to visualize heat will help the insurance ecosystem close claims quicker. On the job connectivity provided by our rugged devices that can cope with challenging environments mean better precision, accuracy, and essentially a greater policyholder satisfaction.” Livegenic IR, an infrared enabled live collaboration mobile app that is part of the Livegenic product suite is available via the Cat S60 suite of curated apps in the App Toolbox and can also now be downloaded from Google Play App store.
