Actionable Insights is proud to present:
“Race with the Machines"

You guys know we are all about gamification. Imagine an event where the world’s top-ranked Xactimate users come together to compete in-person and in real-time. We will have the best-of-the-best compete against one another, evaluating both speed and accuracy when compared to the benchmark Geomni Property Insights digital assets.

Actionable Information:
At its core, this is a light-hearted and fun event. Actionable Insights has teamed up with the PIRC* to combine a full day of educational discussions about the industry’s hottest topics with our sketch-off competition. Mark Whatley and Seth Harrison, the principal authors of Actionable Insights’ Umpire’s Mitigation/Repair Manuals, will MC various competitions. The results of the competition will be announced two days later at the Xactware’s Elevate Conference 2019. Actionable Insights’ stakeholders will evaluate the merits of calling upon digital assets to support various estimating/adjusting activities in addition to exploring the true cost to adjust a claim, evaluating both traditional methods as opposed to a Geomni-powered assisted automation approach.

*Note: This is a 2-for-1 ticket! You will receive access to the PIRC’s full day conference as well as our sketch-off event at the reception. You can find out more about the PIRC and the conference’s agenda at the PIRC website.
