New CLAIM Management System for Hail Affected Locations

HailStrike™ proudly announces yet another first-ever innovative service for the claims, restoration and construction industries: CLAIM™ [Complete Location Analysis & Information Management] This new management system brings together several powerful tools from HailStrike. Including; hail sto­­rm history, color coded hail activity maps, general property information, owner details, custom reminders, local demographic information, roof measurement tool with job cost and estimations, and HailStrike’s own radar-based multi-site monitoring.  HailStrike is also introducing a unique tool called StormCompass™ which shows an average of storm directions that have impacted the selected property in the past.

With each CLAIM™ location you enter, you have the option to specify details about the property owner, insurance carrier and claim information. You can also set reminders and specify hail monitoring for the location for instant notification of future hail activity. With a logically laid out graphical user interface, users can notate, arrange, prioritize, edit and save your projects for future reference.

Christy Cook, Chief Operating Officer at CClaim Consulting, LLC in Frisco, Texas recently commented of the new tool – “… With [HailStrike’s] newly added CLAIM™ feature, I can search a specific site and zero in on the exact address, measure the roof, price out the job, analyze the storm history with data and visuals, color code it to match my internal process, setup and alerts AND track all of my owner’s contact and claim information.”

ClaimLogo_150_XHailStrike is the “go to” resource for professionals needing to research storm activity and also custom alerts to send instant notification when hail activity is detected. Daron Sneed, CEO and Founder of HailStrike says: “With the new CLAIM™ system, we have brought all of those powerful tools together in a single window that allows users to completely manage their claim from head to toe. This new tool is another industry first and is fully supported with training and instructional videos.”

CLAIM™ also has a unique tool for quickly measuring roof tops.  The Roof Area measurement tool can be used to estimate the area and cost of a project.  All of your data is saved in your online account as long as it remains active.

Christy Cook continues: “As a consultant to property owners regarding storm claims, HailStrike is the first reporting site I turn too to research and validate storm activity and they continue to raise the bar in providing unique features to help us run our business and give us an edge no other storm site does.”

Hail Verification Mobile App: ONESITE™ MOBILE

HailStrike™ proudly announces yet another first ever innovative service. OneSite™ Mobile is poised to bring the missing solution to mobile access for hail storm dates.

Remaining the industry leader in site-specific and date-specific hail verification, HailStrike’s new OneSite™ Mobile app allows users to access the most extensive, detailed and time-sensitive hail reporting data from the field, from virtually any mobile device. The app gives the flexibility of requesting hail data and potential dates of loss with the touch of a finger. The only input needed is a property address, which can be automatically attained using a powerful Geo-Locating algorithm, or by manually entering a property address. The powerful tool takes the address and reports all hail activity over the past 5 years including size, duration, storm speed, storm direction and more.

The OneSite™ Mobile app can deliver two types of reports: a comprehensive, detailed OneSite™ report with historical activity along with support documentation, or a OneSite Lite™ that individually lists the dates of activity. Both of these reports are generated from the field in under 3 minutes.

Insurance adjusters, CAT teams, independent claims adjusters, public adjusters, roofing contractors, and roofing engineers will find OneSite™ Mobile an indispensable tool in immediate remote hail verification for a specific address.

With this new platform, HailStrike has “put the power of the most advanced weather technology in the hands of the user where it is needed most…in the field,” said CEO and Founder Daron Sneed. “By making the data included in the proprietary OneSite™ Report now accessible on any mobile device, our customers are able to immediately determine dates of storm activity and respond accordingly.”

Vince Pardue, President & CEO at CClaim Consulting, LLC in Frisco, Texas says, “HailStrike has once again provided a great solution! Their new OneSite™ Mobile app has opened exciting new directions for us and now we can remotely access the same comprehensive data we have previously been utilizing from our office.” Pardue continues, “Having access to this information, on demand, allows us to quickly respond with relative data regarding a potential loss from hail at a specific location. We’re excited that a company has finally developed this tool and we believe OneSite™ Mobile is going to be a major asset when pulling comprehensive weather verification reports while in the field.”

OneSite™ Reports utilize Dual Polarization, NEXRAD radars’ newest technology, which creates a digital, High Definition look into the heart of a storm. Only HailStrike captures, stores and analyzes this data every five minutes from NOAA’s NEXRAD [Next-Generation Radar] station across the country and then processes it with HailStrike’s patent-pending algorithms.

HailStrike’s approach adds an even deeper level of value. “The ultimate benefit of the OneSite™ Report lies in our refusal to alter or manipulate data for any purpose,” said Sneed. “When it comes to data accuracy, we’ve taken incredible pains to ensure that information transmitted by the radar is completely unbiased on its way to the customer. We do not enhance or hypothesize data in regards to gaps or measurements.”

HailStrike Reviews: Indianapolis Roofer Says “Gold Map”

We recently had a phone call with Duane Stearman, the owner of Happiness Restoration LLC. in Indianapolis, about his experience with HailStrike.

He shared a review of our online hail maps software and whether or not he recommends other roofers use it too.

Duane compares the HailStrike software to handing someone a gold map so you know exactly where to go.

Wouldn’t you rather know the spot with the most gold in one area?

Well, that’s what HailStrike does for roofers.

We show you the pockets of most likely hail damage from every storm as far back as 10 years.

7 Ways to Get More Roofs This Summer

The busy season is heating up and storms are occuring around the country every single day.

Let’s talk about a few ways you can get more roofs this summer with these roofing marketing tips:

1. Use your yard signs better

Most roofers wait to long before they put out their signs. Why?

I guess it’s the industry to standard to wait and put up a sign after you do the roof.

There is a better way and simple script to use to the yard sign up ASAP.

2. Make more videos

I know you watch videos because everyone is watching on the computer and on their phones and tablets.

People are searching for entertainment and information, so why not provide one or both of those things for your audience?

You have one of the most powerful tools in your hand right now and we can make super easy videos with it.

3. Facebook ads are awesome

Are you using these little $5 ads to get leads?

Facebook loves local businesses that advertise and you can get in front tons of homeowners for just $5 per day.

4. Is your crew branded?

You pull up to a job site at 7am. It’s a $400,000 house and the neighbors are peeking out of their windows to see who you are.

Can they tell what company is there or does it look like a group of rag tag day laborers?

5. Partner with a technology company

It’s 2015 and the information available online to make your job easier is staggering.

In fact, you can forget the shotgun approach when you know the best neighbors to work because your technology partner gave you the information.

6. Capture ghost clients

People are Googling you and your company whether you like it or not.

Whatever they find online (good and bad) is used to decide whether they call you, call you back, or hire the company.

Have you checked to see what happens when people search you?

There are few pretty simple things you can do to take over that Google page 1 with your content.

7. Radar based hail alerts and commercial business information

Being handed a list of commercial businesses in specific categories with the phone number and exact address is a freaking gold mine after a hail storm.

Imagine getting all the storage facilities or apartment complexes or restaurants in a storm affected area so your sales people could pounce on them. That would be awesome, right?

We ran a live training on May 28th where we went deeper into these ideas and exactly how to implement theme ASAP to start getting more roofs.
