Any independent adjuster who’s ever been on a cat deployment will tell you that yes:
you need to know Xactimate
you need to know construction
you need to know some policy
But the most important thing they’ll all agree on is that if you can’t nail down time management, you won’t last long.

When people talk about cat claims being a “trial by fire” or like “trying to drink from a fire hydrant..” they’re not saying that because labeling photos is a pain in the butt.

So you have to have a strategy for handling all the things that will come at on storm.
One of the best ways is to outsource pieces of your workflow to an assistant or a service.
In this video, I sit down with Rebah from Schedule It to talk about how she went from busy cat adjuster to the founder of a software company that specializes in outsourcing your SCHEDULE.
Schedule It is a very powerful platform that will help you save time and be more efficient so that you can close more claims, help more people, and earn more money - all with less stress.
