Union Standard Insurance Group (USIG; Irving, Texas.), a W.R. Berkley Company, has adopted Snapsheet’s (Chicago) virtual platform for auto physical damage claims to USIG customers.

“Technological transformations such as instant, online shopping and the mobile economy have led to rising customer expectations across all industries,” comments Mike Smith, senior VP of claims, Union Standard. “As a medium-sized insurance provider with a targeted regional focus, we look for every opportunity to meet those expectations by partnering with innovative InsurTech companies like Snapsheet.”

Snapsheet’s software platform, which includes what the vendor characterizes as its easily downloadable mobile app, is designed to improve the estimation process for auto repairs from virtual photo submissions to final repairs and payment, which fits with a goal set by Union Standard to provide low-touch claims handling.
