Uber-Like Video Service Lets Adjusters Assess Damage from Their Desks

A new service promises to provide insurance claims adjusters with videos of losses without them ever having to leave their desks. The videos would be supplied by an Uber-like network of smartphone users and, eventually, also drone operators.

Los Angeles-based DropIn Inc. is offering an on-demand streaming video service that allows adjusters to direct a contracted smartphone user to the exact area they’d like to cover – while remaining in their office.
