The hail season is here in the United States, and it’s time to make sure your company has the tools to deal with it.
There are a lot of technologies offered that can help your company deal with the hail storms that have rocked the U.S. in the past couple of weeks. If you’re still working with your gut and paper files, it might be time to upgrade!
Here’s a few things you can check on to see if you’re ready to start making your hail claims quick and efficient:
Paper Files vs. CRM
CRM or customer relationship manager is a technology that allows you to store contact information for your clients. You can associate information with them too using Quickbooks integration. This makes it easier to keep in contact with customers and to know what to talk about when you contact them.
Your Gut vs. Hail Maps
Having a lot of experience dealing with hail storms doesn’t mean you can’t use hail maps to help you determine where hail is falling and how big it is. Using that information helps you calculate the best areas to hit looking for hail damage claims.
Shared Leads vs. Exclusive Appointments
Leads are never a for sure thing. It’s impossible to know that you’re even going to get a chance to meet with a potential client. Exclusive appointments offer you the guarantee to be able to speak directly with a potential client and make your case for why you’re the company they should go with.
Hiring Sales Staff vs. Using a Staffing Firm
Staffing firms provide an advantage over constantly hiring sales staff by removing the hassle of having to go out and find the proper salesmen to hire. A staffing firm not only knows how to find the right salesmen for your company, but they manage all the backend stuff letting you focus on getting your company money.
Spread Sheets vs. Xactimate
Xactimate automates a lot of the claims process. It gives you details on different parts of the roof so you can make sure to get the right pricing in. When compared to spread sheets, Xactimate saves you time and money.
Salesman Supplementing vs. Claims Administration
If you use a claims administration to supplement your insurance files, you’re going to be dealing with people who are efficient and timely when compared to having a salesman supplement.
