The SurveyorTech concept was brought to Software Solved in 2019 by Rob Faulkner.
Rob had spent the last 25 years working in the UK Insurance Market and spotted an opportunity to improve the quality and visualisation of risk information that flows between client, broker and underwriter. Doing so by using technology that enables underwriters to better appraise risk pre and post loss without necessarily physically visiting a property or site.
When Rob stepped back and looked at other markets, such as surveying, property and risk management, it was clear there were similar challenges around legacy technology, limited visualisation of property, siloed applications, and high surveying costs. The market was crying out for a software product that facilitated both on-site and remote surveying within a single application which is becoming even more important as the world embraces remote and hybrid working.
Software Solved invested in the idea and quickly ring fenced a development team in December 2019.
Martin Lovell, our Commercial and Product Director joined the business in March 2020 to lead our Product Management function and implement our Design Thinking methodologies so SurveyorTech could be taken to market in January 2021.
On its journey to-date, SurveyorTech haso secured two rounds of funding from the UK Government backed scheme, Innovate UK and has also joined the RICS Tech Partner Programme which puts SurveyorTech at the heart of innovation and technology in the Surveying Sector.
Today SurveyorTech serves clients across the insurance broking, claims, risk management, surveying, property management and facilities sectors.
