Tractable and Mitchell to offer combined solution for AI vehicle repair estimating
Tractable, the artificial intelligence company for accident & disaster recovery, today announces a new partnership with Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty (P&C) claims and Collision Repair Industries. This allows North American automotive insurers to produce collision repair estimates automatically from photos.
Tractable’s AI acts as a human appraiser, using proprietary computer vision to examine photos of vehicle damage and return a list of part-level repair operations seconds after photos are submitted. When combined with Mitchell’s collision repair data, the result is a repair estimate – produced in seconds from anyone’s smartphone – which a repairer can start to work from and upon which claims can be settled.
By employing this technology across the auto insurance claims journey – from understanding damage at first notice of loss (FNOL) to performing repairs – multiple days and manual touchpoints can be cut out from the accident recovery process. For the driver, the result is a simpler experience that instead of taking days or weeks can take minutes to complete on their phone.
Alex Dalyac, co-founder and CEO of Tractable, said: “We’re excited to combine our solutions to accelerate accident recovery. Mitchell’s collision repair data and industry expertise are known to be a reference in North America, as are their affiliate’s GT Motive in Europe. Insurers now have access to a solution that is best of breed on both AI and repair estimatics. The Tractable-Mitchell band is here and ready to rock.”
Olivier Baudoux, senior vice president of global product strategy and AI at Mitchell, said: “By collaborating with Tractable, bringing them into our Mitchell Intelligent Open Platform, and combining Tractable’s AI engine with Mitchell Intelligent Estimating, customers can access an advanced, turnkey solution.
