Risk Control Technologies Introduces iPad App for Loss Control Inspectors
TORONTO, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Risk Control Technologies Inc., the
industry-leading provider of loss control inspection software for
insurers, today announced the launch of an iPad app to provide an
additional option to field inspectors using the RC Inspection loss
“This is big news for us as well as our clients,” said David Hanley of
Risk Control Technologies, “although our clients have been utilizing
our offline Windows tablet application in the field for more than 8
years now, the excitement around the iPad made it impossible for us to
ignore the need for an app specific to this device”.
The benefit of an app specific to Apple devices is that users can
complete their work in an offline state (if required), as well as
leverage the native iPad tools such as the camera, GPS and touch-screen
capabilities to even further streamline their field inspection
processes. The RC Inspection Windows tablet application remains
available, but insurers now have the option of deploying iPads to some
or all field inspectors for use in the field.
The RC Inspection solution streamlines the loss control process for
insurers. It allows mobile loss control inspectors to electronically
receive work requests and collect information in the field including
assessment data, recommendations, digital photos and diagrams. Data is
then uploaded into a central database which allows underwriters to
utilize the information in making underwriting decisions. The central
data repository offers data mining and reporting capabilities which
have traditionally been unavailable in the paper-based loss control
environment in which most insurers operate.
The Risk Control Technologies loss control solution is currently used by
loss control departments of leading insurers such as Shelter Insurance
Companies, Society Insurance, Allstate Canada and The Guarantee Company
of North America.
