USA Today is reporting that rainfall in the Carolinas in the past week totals more than 11 trillion gallons—enough to end the widespread drought in California.
This enormous volume of water in just a few days has caused widespread flooding throughout the region, and Xactware users are already on the ground helping victims recover from the storm.
Here are a few ways Xactware is working to help:
Our pricing team is monitoring prices in the aftermath of the storm and will issue updates when price changes are documented. You can also read the team’s storm reports on the eService Center. Please help monitor post-storm costs by reporting any price changes you see to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include contact information, the affected city, the item in question, and any supporting information.
Xactware is offering a variety of training options at convenient locations. Classroom training on Xactimate version 28—including many important new flood estimating features—is coming soon to Raleigh, N.C., Jackson, Miss., Baton Rouge, La., Richmond, Va., and many other nearby locations. You can also sharpen your flood estimating skills by enrolling in virtual classroom training. Self-paced training is also available from our Online Training Center.
Our support team is ready to assist you with any Xactware-related issues you encounter. Chat support is available 24/7 through the eService Center, or you can call 1-800-710-9228 during business hours for paid phone support. The eService Center is also filled with useful documents, videos, and product tips to help you find answers to your questions.
