PRESCOTT, Ariz., and OREM, Utah, November 19, 2009 — A new collaboration with one of the nation’s largest firearms suppliers lets insurers quickly search tens of thousands of firearms online in Xactware’s contents estimating database.
Firearms wholesaler Davidson’s Inc., GalleryofGuns.com, has teamed up with Xactware to give insurance adjusters access to its vast online inventory via XactContents, the fastest and most reliable contents estimating tool in the property insurance industry. This collaboration enables insurers to conveniently browse firearm listings by brand, model, gun type, or caliber.
“With thousands of different firearms available on the market today, trying to find the right make and model can be an overwhelming experience,” said Bryan Tucker, President and CEO of Davidson’s. “This collaboration with Xactware will help contents estimators locate what they’re looking for in a hurry.”
Davidson’s distributes more than 65 brands of firearms from the industry’s premier manufacturers, including Ruger, Remington, Smith & Wesson, and Winchester. Because Davidson’s is a wholesaler, firearm prices contained in XactContents are based on typical dealer prices rather than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
From the XactContents module, users can tap into the pricing data contained in Davidson’s online consumer firearms purchasing tool, Gun Genie, to find replacement items for firearms involved in a loss. Once they’ve found the item they are looking for, users can click on the selection to go to Davidson’s GalleryofGuns.com website to validate product and pricing information.
“Often when loss claims include firearms, it takes additional time and effort to find suitable replacements,” said Ryan Smith, Xactware’s AVP of XactContents. “With a convenient online connection to more than 2,000 Davidson’s Gold Dealers across the nation, this collaboration will save insurers untold hours estimating contents replacement costs.”
