I wanted to send you an email this letting you know how much I appreciate Interactive Hail Maps! Feel free to give my name and number to anyone needing a reference; I am more than happy to provide a glowing report! Also, I just spoke with two of our Oklahoma sales reps, who both confirmed that the hail in OKC Monday night was exactly as Interactive Hail Maps reported – .5 to 1” hail, and not the 2” that the spotters were reporting – based on the damage they are seeing.
The pros of Interactive Hail Map are numerous. The value proposition is huge in itself! While most other companies are charging $1500 + for a small area, and are charging several hundred dollars for just one local storm swath and/or a site-specific address report, Interactive Hail Maps offers the entire storm swath nationwide for less than $1000 annually. The site is extremely user friendly and easy to navigate. I especially love the address monitoring. I have the sales reps use this in their sales speech – that as an additional service to our clients, we monitor their properties and will inspect them at no charge should they be effected by storms in the future. I particularly like the “Show Impact Dates” and “View Impact Report” buttons. It allows me to quickly look at and compare all impact dates on a particular property to determine which is the best date for our clients. I can print the report or email it to an adjuster to support the storm date. The storm swath alone has proved invaluable several times. While many other storm tracking sites show just a small line to reflect the storm path and charge extra for the actual storm swath, Interactive Hail Maps shows the entire swath, which makes it incredibly easy to direct the sales reps to the best locations to canvass. Even better that I can click on the area to get the zip code and demographics…a huge time saver for me!
I just took a poll of the sales reps and everyone agrees that Interactive Hail maps is much better than the previous site we were using. The only thing they wanted was the ability to save and/or email a storm swath. Right now, we have to print the screen, then scan and email. It would be much easier to be able to email it directly.
I would love to see more carriers and adjusters using Interactive Hail Maps and am hoping that the coming year will provide you with the opportunity to get your name out there to every one of them! Again, the value proposition is incredible!
I am a huge fan of Interactive Hail Maps and am more than happy to tell everyone what a great service you offer! You have made my life much easier and saved me money in the meantime!
Thanks, Mike – I appreciate all you do!
