Hyland, a leading content services provider for organizations across the globe, launches OnBase OnSite, a virtual field inspection and evidence collection solution for the insurance industry.

The solution enables insurance field staff, contractors or customers to collaborate with claims adjusters, customer support representatives or underwriters in real-time, allowing them to capture live video, voice, and photos of the inspection site. They can then upload those photos, videos and other documents related to the inspection to the solution’s web portal, giving adjusters instant access to that information.

Once a customer initiates a claim, they are sent a text message with a secure, web-based link to their claim. When the customer is ready to collaborate, they contact the adjuster and begin the live video stream from the application. The adjuster guides the customer in real-time, telling them what to capture and where to zoom. Then, either the adjuster or customer can take photos.

OnBase OnSite enables insurers to provide customers with resolution in only a day or two, rather than weeks, as is often the case with a traditional inspection.

“OnBase OnSite is the only collaboration solution on the market that understands how this kind of unstructured photo and video content works in the context of the existing workflows, content management solutions and core claims systems that carriers already have in place,” said Colin Toomey, Hyland’s director of product management, insurance. “Without the expertise to integrate with a carrier’s existing content management system – where the rest of the claim file is managed – a carrier would create multiple places to manage the evidence for each claim, creating delays and compliance issues. Since Hyland is a leading content services provider with experts in the insurance industry, the OnBase Onsite solution was designed to avoid those pitfalls.”
