Fact: independent adjusters are paid to be efficient.
If Adjuster A and Adjuster B are both looking at the same house, they should both produce a very similar claim file, right? Which means that the fee bill will be the same.
If Adjuster A can close that claim in 2 hours and Adjuster B can get the exact same results in 1 hour, who will make more money?
In property claims, the adjusters who close good claims fast will receive more new claims.
But how can Adjuster B get the same results as Adjuster A in half the time?
Adjuster B has to put a lot of effort and energy into streamlining his claims workflow. How does he do that? A lot of ways. But carefully planned time management is going to be the best way.
One of the biggest things that eats up his schedule is time spent on intaking and routing his new claims, building his schedule, and making fifty phone calls in an afternoon.
After that, he'll spend even more time updating his activity diary so that his manager knows he contacted his insureds.
That’s a lot of time spent on the phone and tapping away at his laptop.
For many years, field adjusters had no choice but to take at least an entire day to set up, route, schedule, and contact their insureds and then update all of their files - and do it by hand.
But in the last few years, that's started to change.
In today's video, I crack open Schedule It and show you a few of the cool features of the software - including how to see what IA firms have been assigning claims in the last 7 days AND WHERE.
