How Drones Are Adding Value to Insurance Firms

As an Independent Adjuster (IA) or Third Party Administrator (TPA) firm investigates and manages a claim for an insurer, the goal is to efficiently and accurately determine what is needed to adjudicate the claim. As the industry looks at Catastrophes, like Hail and Wind losses, we have begun to see Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs/drones) used more prevalently amongst the IA/TPA Firms. There are numerous benefits that drones provide to both the IA/TPA firms as well as the insurer.

Speed and Efficiency

Utilizing drones in post-loss inspection is enabling a reduction in the claim adjudication timeline to as little as 4.5 days.


Drones are eliminating the need to have inspectors climb roofs. A drone operator remains safely on the ground and can capture previously unobtainable angles at high speed.

Cost Savings

The average Non-Catastrophe roofing IA Expense is $600 while the average Catastrophe roofing IA expense is $1,100. Firms can utilize best-in-class granularity for comprehensive damage assessment to the entire exterior of a property with the latest drone technology.

All of the Above PLUS Scalability

As IA and TPA firms evaluate the utilization of drones, they should consider the additional benefits offered by DroneBase: the best-in-class, world-leader in Aerial Drone Property Inspections.
