ADM Crop Risk Services Introduces New Aeros Adjuster™ System

04/24/2011
Portable system offers quick pay, convenience for farmers

ADM Crop Risk Services (ADM CRS) has introduced the Aeros Adjuster™ system – bringing convenience and quick payment for claims to farmers. The leading-edge Aeros Adjuster software runs on ClaimTop™, a specially designed tablet PC that includes GPS technology, a camera and a cellular data connection.

“When producers have a devastating incident which requires a crop insurance claim, the last thing they need is to wait weeks for payment. With our Aeros Adjuster software and portable ClaimTop tablet PC, ADM CRS has the ability to map the damaged acres, take dated photos with GPS coordinates attached and receive digital signature from producers. All of this information is quickly uploaded while the adjuster is still working in the farmer’s field,” said Brian Young, vice president, claims, ADM Crop Risk Services.

With the Aeros Adjuster system, once the ADM CRS adjuster is finished filing the claim, it is immediately available for auditing and can be paid as soon as the insured producer digitally signs the Final Notice of Loss acting in accordance with the Loss Adjustment Manual (LAM).  Young continues, “The portability of the ADM CRS system saves time for everyone involved in the claim process. And perhaps best of all, it allows for a same-day or next-day payment to the producers up to approved dollar limits.”

In March, ADM CRS completed the first claim using the Aeros program and ClaimTop tablet PC. The adjuster checked the field in the morning, and thanks to the portability and convenience of the ADM CRS system, the check was available for the producer that afternoon.

In addition to the convenience and quick payment the Aeros system offers to producers, the new program is also virtually paperless. ADM CRS no longer prints multiple copies of claims to send to the ADM CRS office and agent. When the adjuster finishes the claim, all of the documents and claim information are readily available electronically. This greatly reduces the amount of paper and ink involved in the more traditional claim process.
