Xactimate mobile videos available in XactAnalysis
Video capture is a powerful feature in Xactimate mobile, providing “the big picture” in a way that still images simply can’t. Now you can review those videos directly in XactAnalysis.
Mobile video capture is included with Xactimate Professional.
Xactimate Inspection Tool
With the Xactimate Inspection Tool, you can grant access to the specific functionality your employees need to perform proof of loss and preliminary inspections, and if you have an Xactimate subscription with an online instance, you can add unlimited inspectors for no additional cost.
We’ve expanded our staircase rotation capabilities in sketch by allowing you to rotate stairs before you place them in the workspace.
Editing replacement value field for contents items
For contents items, instead of manually calculating the unit price before tax, you can now simply enter the retail price with taxes. This will save you valuable time and streamline your workflow.
You can now import Xactimate project information into the ITEL Now App, eliminating duplicate entry. This means that you can view your local project list and select a project within the ITEL Now App, and the data will seamlessly transfer over.
Using Vai technology, Xactimate mobile now suggests line items intuitively based on the popularity for item type, location, loss type, and room type, making it faster to find the line items most common to your loss scenario.
Notice that the suggested line items update when the type of loss is changed from Freeze to Flood to Fire.
Snap for wall and fence tool
We’ve improved the sketch experience with walls and fences. As your finger gets close to an intersecting wall or fence, your sketch will automatically snap into place.
Roof slope selection
Roof slope selection is now better than ever. You can add line items to a single face or multiple faces. Simply select a roof face, add a line item, and the correct calculation for your selection is automatically provided.
Take videos in Xactimate mobile to provide “the big picture,” connecting rooms and perspectives in a way that still images simply can’t. With HD video captured in 720p resolution, quality is high enough to extract stills.
Photo albums are automatically generated when you create rooms and areas in sketch and list view. We’ve expanded this functionality to include a custom photo album feature so you can add photos to an estimate before creating a sketch.
Item attributes for contents
Select an item (such as a TV), then adjust attributes such as manufacturer size and resolution. Based on your input, Xactimate finds exactly what you need.
"Same as" option for addresses
To help you enter address information quickly, we’ve added a “same as” option that allows you to add repeat addresses to an estimate.
FEMA flood forms
Use an expanded suite of FEMA flood forms for increased control and flexibility so you can work on your FEMA claims wherever and however you need.
Note line items
Add notes to an estimate without attaching them to items. This is handy for leaving a more visible note or comment that may apply across large segments of an estimate.
New types of dimensioned stairs
We’ve made sketching and measuring staircases easier by introducing more dimensioning options.
