    Just curious. Anyone currently working Nationwide as a field IA:

    What are your thoughts/recommendations?

    How do they compare w/others you've worked for? (fee schedule, general treatment, ease/difficulty in file accpetance, etc).

    How are they on roofs, high/steep, use of Eagleview/similar? (State Farm and Allstate now provide E-view, no charge to IA)...

    Jared.

    I imagine that there is no charge for eagleview because there most likely has been no increase in the fee schedule over the last three years(or more). So they are saving money by using eagleview by eliminating the time required to map and measure a roof and get a product that will be acceptable to contractors without dispute.

    Well Jared, as far as general treatment is concerned, Nationwide does demand that it's adjuster's pay attention to the smallest details by using spell check on their estimates and something YOU should ALSO consider. 

    As far as EagleView my friend, that should ONLY be used as a tool to verify an adjusters roof dimensions and  NOT used instead of climbing  and measuring said roofs (except in cases where EagleView is the only option available IE a roof system is unstable or obscenely high)

    The day that the carriers go totally to using EagleView/GeoEstimator (Sat imagery) or Pictometry(A college kid duct taped to the bottom of a Cessna with a Polaroid) and no longer require an actual adjuster on the roof is the day I go to the other side of the industry because those images are not always accurate and have no way of counting layers of shingles and easily miss subtle nuances of damage that cannot be seen from Inner space.

    Going only with sat images is gonna leave alot of money on the table and is ripe for a PA or plaintiff attorney. Also going only with sat images means a significant decrease in our fee schedules over and above the decreases we are already dealing with.
