New Services Offers to Capture, Store Home Owner Contents Digitally

New York-based Law DeskTop, a provider of secure, hosted document management services to law firms and legal departments, announced the launch of a free service called HomeOwners Survey that allows homeowners to manage records of their possessions by texting, emailing or uploading pictures of their belongings to the cloud-based service for safekeeping, including the cost, date of acquisition and approximate market value of each item.

The program frees homeowners from having to retain paper records in their homes and avoid the potential loss of the documents in an accidental fire, flood or other catastrophe. By digitally storing the records through the HomeOwners Survey platform, homeowners avert the difficult challenge of recovering lost or damaged pictures and documentation of art, furniture, rugs and home improvements, as may be needed by to their insurance company as part of the recovery process.

Partnering insurance companies can offer the HomeOwners Survey to clients as free platform. All possession information can be exported as a spreadsheet, not only benefiting homeowners in case of loss, but also providing their insurance company with an up-to-date document of their belongings. This spreadsheet can then be incorporated into the home documentation and updated periodically during the year if necessary. Additionally, the data can be exported during insurance policy renewals, per insurance company requests to review updated home-related information with their clients.
