MAIA is a member-driven association dedicated to preserving, strengthening and promoting members and the American Insurance Agency System as the premier distribution system of insurance and financial services. Through its partnership with Pictometry, MAIA will offer a discounted price for the most advanced set of technologies that allow agents to view and measure property sites from multiple directions without leaving their desk.
“Our goal is to provide independent insurance agents and brokers with resources that will make their job easier and give them a competitive advantage,” said Melinda Cordner, Vice President of Operations at MAIA. “Pictometry offers a unique service that enables our members to quickly and easily evaluate properties for risk using a wealth of previously unavailable information that is now right at their fingertips.”
Pictometry software enables insurance professionals to take detailed measurements, including surface distance, height, area, land elevation and roof pitch/area/height, of any property site located in Massachusetts. Sites can be viewed from any directions and annotations can be made directly on the image to create more professional looking quotes and submissions.
“We’ve captured imagery of every square inch of the state of Massachusetts, because when it comes to assessing properties for risk, tiny details can be major difference-makers,” said Kevin Reilley, President of Pictometry Business Solutions. “With this information readily available, insurance agents can react and respond to opportunities faster than their competitors and identify properties with confidence.”
