Industry Briefing with Mike Fulton, CEO, Xactware Solutions, Inc. for RIA Members

RIA's Advocacy & Government Affairs (AGA) Committee is committed to advocating for the best interests of restoration contractors to help create and maintain equity between restorers and insurers and their partners. 

Recently, during the RIA Virtual Conference, Xactware Solutions, Inc. CEO Mike Fulton participated in a productive conversation with RIA President Mark Springer about Xactimate's market rate price list and how the product is intended to be used. RIA then released a video with Ed Cross, RIA's Restoration Advocate highlighting one aspect of that discussion on YouTube to help restorers in their conversations with insurance adjusters. This was a huge win for the restoration community and demonstrates the tremendous progress being made by AGA in leveling the playing field for restorers. 

We had a great response to the video and are glad restorers were able to see just a sample of the tremendous progress AGA is making. The video is now available on www.restorationindustry.org for RIA members only here. You must be logged in to access it.
 
There's much more to come including our next Industry Briefing on May 21st at 1:00 pm EST during which we will continue the conversation with Xactware Solutions, Inc. CEO Mike Fulton to discuss concerns from a contractor perspective and some potential solutions to these challenges. This event is for RIA members. To register, you will first need to login to the RIA website with your member login credentials and then click here to register for the event.
