Crawford & Company® (NYSE: CRD-A and CRD-B), the world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management and outsourcing solutions to carriers, brokers, and corporations, is pleased to announce a partnership with Phoenix Restoration Equipment (Phoenix) to provide its DryLINK ecosystem to Crawford’s Contractor Connection® 6,000-member network.
Through the DryLINK ecosystem, contractors will have access to jobsite data collection tools and drying reports, helping to drive efficiency in lieu of recent skilled labor shortages. As the insurance industry’s largest network of credentialed contractors, Contractor Connection is trusted by market-leading insurance carriers to deliver consistent quality service when property damages occur to help restore the lives of the insured.
The DryLINK ecosystem is an app-based jobsite data collection tool that uses Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular technology to completely automate data entry on the jobsite and build the drying report. With DryLINK, contractors can save 3-4 hours per job taking readings in-person or remotely and prioritize onsite visits based on remote readings. Contractors can then instantly share a link to the drying report to keep adjusters and other stakeholders appraised as to the progress of the job.
You can learn more about the value of remote monitoring and data collection in this Restoration Today podcast with Phoenix’s Erin Hynum.
