 "Never before has this type of information been publicly available to consumers at their fingertips.  The advantage has never been in the consumer's favor.  It's always been a guessing game and each consumer usually accepts what their insurer pays them, not what they may be due.  On the average property insurance claim, the property owner is potentially paid 10 to 20 percent on the dollar of what they may be due because they do not know any better.  The Property Ruler changes everything," said Daniel S Jacobs, VP of Sales for IT Strategies Group.

After being deployed and tested on thousands of Superstorm Sandy and other property damage claims over the past several years, the Property Ruler™ is now available to the general public. The Property Ruler™ is a cloud based, user-friendly, property damage assessment tool designed to create a quick property damage estimate within roughly 5 minutes and requires no knowledge of insurance, how to interpret coverage, or public adjusting experience.  This is for someone with a property claims, hurricane claim, fire claim, flood claim, Sandy claim, wind claim, or a homeowners claim.

Most homeowners and commercial property owners are victimized by their insurer when their property damage claims are unreasonably denied or severely underpaid. The Property Ruler™ puts the power back in the hands of the consumer by arming them with information that is not available to them from their insurance companies or publicly available on the World Wide Web.

Upon activating the Property Ruler™, the user is provided a series of questions that require no knowledge of insurance or public adjusting andt take roughly 5 minutes to complete. After selecting the answers for the questions in the Property Ruler™, the user will receive an estimate of what their property damage may be worth so they can pursue this claim directly with their insurer or seek proper representation from one of our network of approved Public Adjusters or Legal Professionals. The Property Ruler™ maintains a national network of approved Public Adjusters and Legal Professionals who are certified with our software and are here to help represent the affected.

One common misconception is that property owners believe their claim is closed and that it is all they deserve when they receive a payment from their insurance company. The first payment from an insurance company is undisputed and generally referred to as an "interim payment", and is only the first stop on the mission to be made whole if armed with the proper knowledge of what a property owner may be owed under their insurance policy.

"The first payment from the insurance company is an undisputed payment called an interim payment.  The majority of consumers do not realize that they have the right to ask for what they are due not what they are given.  The largest barrier for consumers is the lack of knowledge in determining what they may deserve, how to assess property damage, and realizing they CAN ask for more even if they cash the interim payment check they are given by their insurance company.  The Property Ruler turns the tables and is the first consumer tool of its kind," said Craig Sienema, VP of Operations for IT Strategies Group.
