Verified Data Analytics, an Urbandale-based software company, has announced it is making its property assessment applications available to contractors nationwide. Its offerings include VDA Pro, a field inspection, data collection and reporting app to digitize building inspections, and VDA Drone, an automated drone inspection app for building inspections and data visualizations.

According to a news release, the solution uses algorithms and artificial intelligence to combine the physical data collected via mobile phone application and drone footage to provide property owners, contractors and insurance companies with the measurements, documentation and reports needed. 

“It is common knowledge that in construction, accuracy, consistency and time can impede the restoration process,” said Chandler Steffy with Verified Data Analytics. “By providing data-driven measurement and reporting, we’re giving everyone involved complete, accurate, indisputable information. The property owner can compare estimates, the contractor can professionalize their presentations, tighten supply ordering and if needed, provide documentation for a streamlined claims process.”

Steffy is also president and owner of local roofing contractor Superstorm Restoration, where Verified Data Analytics’ solution was first applied. Read more about the development and effects of the solution in this Business Record story.
