This isn't a cool tool as much as it's an interesting development around the insurance community. National carriers, down to super regional carriers might find great use for We Go Look though.
Starting as a company with the idea of checking out an eBay product before purchase, We Go Look quickly found a home in the insurance space. Though they still inspect heavy equipment (for financing usually), preform notary services, and help with other various white collar tasks, their recent 85% acquisition by a global insurance adjuster company (Crawford and Co.) shows just how bit insurance is to their bottom line.
What's really interesting about this company is that they simply use the geo-location and time-stamp features of a smartphone to help anyone freelance on call like Uber, I think it is a great way to help serve rural spaces be surviced better, and it'll help level up servicing claims after a disaster. You'll still need seasoned adjusters for nuanced issues, but We Go Look will help get insurance clients served more quickly.
