Tablets and insurance claims adjusters: A love story
The insurance industry is one of many that can benefit greatly from the use of tablet computers.
Tablets offer users high-power processing capabilities, internet access, thousands of applications and a large, interactive screen. This makes them perfect for anyone with a job that requires quick access to communication tools, as well as applications for recording and storing large amounts of critical information.
Enter the insurance claims adjuster. This job requires a worker constantly on the move, willing to gather information quickly and able to process it into a detailed and coherent report later on. For these reasons, tablets may be a game-changer for the insurance world.
A claims adjuster can use a tablet to take photos or videos of a scene relevant to a specific case, while also opening one of many applications for jotting down and storing notes. For those who may prefer to type the report based on this information with a full, QWERTY keyboard, cloud-based storage and collaboration applications, such as Google Apps, grant access to information from any internet-connected device. Any information created on a tablet can be easily accessed and formed into a full report on another computer.
As tablets become more popular, professionals in all types of industries will find new and innovative ways to use them. The technology has already had an impact on the healthcare, government and journalism fields, for example.
