Bothell, WA (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
EagleView Technologies, an Inc. 500 leading technology company, was awarded the 2012 Industry Innovation Award by the Midwest Roofing Contractors Association (MRCA) for the development of the EagleView mobile application.
“We are honored to be recognized by the MRCA for being an innovator in the industry,” said EagleView President and CEO Chris Barrow. “Technology is about simplifying and improving business processes for those who use it. The EagleView mobile app has increased efficiencies for contractors by allowing them to manage their orders and accounts from wherever they happen to be at any given moment.”
The MRCA Industry Innovation award recognizes suppliers or manufacturers who have contributed to the advancement of the roofing industry through innovations and/or product development in the areas of safety, technology, efficiency or environment that have significantly improved the well-being of the roofing contractor.
EagleView’s mobile application launched in June 2010 providing roofing contractors with a complete mobile solution for managing their roof measurement requests, tracking the status of orders and placing new orders based on their GPS location.
A later release brought the ability for contractors to capture images of a property and mark areas of the photo with damage or weather icons, insert captions or finger draw to highlight a specific area of a photo. Up to six annotated images can be uploaded and sequenced by the user to become part of the aerial measurement report that is prepared for the property.
The introduction of tablet and iPad® versions of the mobile app in 2011 and 2012 enabled contractors to utilize tablet computers to review images and the roof measurement report with property owners during their sales presentation.
