Betterview teams up with Plnar for AI-powered property insurance product


Property intelligence InsurTech Betterview has partnered with Plnar, an AI-powered virtual inspection software for the property insurance market.

Betterview is a provider of actionable intelligence to property and casualty (P&C) insurance companies.

Plnar’s AI-powered software automatically generates accurately measured 3D models of interior spaces in addition to automatically identifying materials and contents from smartphone photos.

The Plnar solution was built in response to P&C insurers need for a way to obtain an immediate, thorough view of property interiors following a loss.

Additionally, Plnar provides accurate measurement and floor plans through its virtual inspection solution which can then be integrated with other tools such as Xactimate, CoreLogic, and Guidewire. The platform has also recently integrated with Hi Marley.

Betterview said the partnership with Plnar will boost efficiency throughout the policy lifecycle, particularly during claims.

Moreover, Betterview said its users can also now view insights from both companies in a single interface, granting them a holistic view of real property condition.

Andy Greff, chief executive officer at Plnar, said, “Although our software features a lot of complex and proprietary technology, its real virtue is its simplicity. If your policyholders can take a picture with their phone, they can use Plnar. This is a huge advantage for claims adjusters especially, who can get a high-quality picture of interior damage through our app before physical inspection teams are able to access the property.

“Plnar not only expedites the claims process, but allows policyholders to feel more involved, making the entire process more painless.”

David Lyman, co-founder and chief executive officer at Betterview, added, “Plnar is a great partner because they perfectly complement our own platform… Whereas Betterview gives a comprehensive view of exterior property condition and overall risk, Plnar provides a view of interior property condition. Together, the two products are a huge boost to efficiency, especially at time of claims.”

In August last year, Betterview partnered with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to provide property and community level wildfire insights.
