Drones are all the buzz.
We hear about Amazon now delivering packages via drone flight and our neighbor getting the newest drone for Christmas—but what do these mini-UFOs mean for the world of insurance?
In claims, the need for drones is robust—in mines, surveying water damage, calculating the dimensions of a construction site. These are just some of the examples where drone technology can be beneficial to insurance claims.
But it turns out that the equation for success is more complex than just filling these needs. A drone company must capture the data and analyze it in a way that the carrier can do something with.
On today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech, we are joined by visionary and veteran, Dan Burton, the Founder and CEO of Dronebase. Started in 2014, Dronebase is now the largest provider of commercial drone flights.
Tune in to this episode to hear Dan’s insights about drone flight in the insurance space, so you can know where it fits into your product or service.
