Elevate Your Estimates
Seven ways EagleView can give your business a boost
Whether you're aware of it or not, estimating is as elemental to everyday life as waking up in the morning and falling asleep at night. As modern humans, we are constantly predicting how much we need of something or how long a task will take. It's those estimates that shape the decisions that end up shaping our lives.
Perhaps no one understands the importance of a good estimate more than a professional contractor. The ability to construct precise and punctual predictions is often the quality that gets you the job, keeps you on time and budget, and helps you build a solid reputation. In other words, you have to hit the proverbial nail on the head before you hit any actual nailheads.
Fortunately, advances in technology are making the art of estimation easier. That's where EagleView comes into play. For more than a decade, the geospatial technology company has been the gold standard for quick and accurate roof measurement reports, eventually expanding into siding, windows, doors and inspections. EagleView uses ultra-high-resolution aerial imagery to calculate measurements down to the pixel, relieving contractors of the time, money and headache formerly required to put a bid together. So what can EagleView offer you? Read on to find out.
1. A professional edge
EagleView delivers its reports to contractors as professional documents with customizable cover pages, aerial imagery and the EagleView 3D model. Giving your homeowners a comprehensive and professional presentation shows them you are qualified, organized, and reliable, which could help differentiate you from your competition.
2. First to bid
Today’s consumers have access to instant information and expect quick estimates. They often choose the first contractor who tells them what they need. EagleView’s QuickSquares™ report can give you the overall square footage of a residential roof and up to one detached garage in about an hour, helping you deliver your estimate fast.
3. Accurate material ordering
Accurate material ordering is crucial, especially with specialty roofing. Come up short, and you can face delays and color lot issues. Have too much, and you might be on the hook for restocking charges. EagleView’s PremiumReport, created with patented 3D technologies, guarantees accurate measurements for precise material ordering and production planning.
4. Negotiate and track labor charges
You won't have to haggle over steep charges or other crew payment issues when you use EagleView reports. Accurate pitch, area and line measurements make tracking labor easy and collaborative. Instead of square measurement disagreements, all parties can use the measurements for rapid and profitable labor and production.
5. Easier design and CAD layouts
EagleView delivers XML or DXF files with every report. If you're using estimating, design or production software, it's likely your EagleView report will integrate right in. Save design time and clerical mistakes with the ability to upload 3D models and exact measurements.
6. Insurance claim documentation
Many insurance carriers accept EagleView reports, and they make submitting claims fast and easy.
7. Warranty documentation
The importance of documenting your work for warranties is essential. EagleView reports provide comprehensive documentation for measurements, square footage and jobsite overview for both your customer and your business.
