The Nation’s Leading Provider of Police Crash Reports Improves Attainability for Insurance Industry
LOUISVILLE, Ky -‐ Appriss, Inc., today, announced it has expanded the service offering on Buycrash.com to include national coverage. Insurance customers with accounts will now have the ability to securely purchase a police crash report from any law enforcement agency across the nation from the convenience of their web browser or through a connection between their claims system and BuyCrash.com (http://www.buycrash.com). This additional coverage will dramatically reduce the time, costs, and complexity of obtaining reports through multiple sources.
“Strong interest from our insurance customers to have access to a single online source for any police crash report prompted us to develop a cost effective and efficient way to deliver reports from any law enforcement agency in the country.” said Appriss CEO, Mike Davis.
Buycrash.com began in 2006 as a solution to help state and local agencies increase their customer service and reduce their costs of disseminating official crash reports. BuyCrash.com quickly became the only statewide real time online source for official police crash reports. In the time since, Appriss has rapidly worked to partner with other local law enforcement agencies to expand BuyCrash.com to a national platform servicing over 20 million crash reports to date. By expanding the BuyCrash.com service to include national coverage, authorized insurance customers will realize the following benefits:
BuyCrash.com is a unique service that offers a statewide solution to obtain police crash reports directly from the source agencies in real-time. “Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida have all chosen BuyCrash.com as their real time online provider of official police crash reports,” said Davis. In addition, as more states adopt the platform, thousands of individual law enforcement agencies across 40 states have also chosen Appriss for their crash reporting solution with access to tools for safer roads and intersections. These tools are provided to law enforcement at no cost.
Appriss, Inc. is the leading provider of many public safety solutions across the nation including the VINE service, an automated victim notification service. Other solutions include CrashLogic for managing police crash reports; NPLEx, the National Precursor Log Exchange for real-time tracking and blocking of illegal sales of meth precursors; JusticeXchange, the nation’s largest booking database, and MobilePatrol, a free public safety app that allows law enforcement to better connect with their community through social media.
