Geospatial views of damages and compliance issues.

Forerunner’s geospatial platform allows you to view damaged properties and potential compliance warnings all in one place. Warnings can be customized to meet the specific needs and regulatory nuances of your community.

Important post-disaster documents and images organized in one place.

Forerunner's document management features centralize post-disaster documents and images by property, helping your team make more informed decisions. The flexibility of our software allows you to hide more sensitive data from the public view if you choose to do so.

Mobile app for Forerunner access while out in the field.

Forerunner's app enables your team to upload crucial information while performing inspections. The data collected using the app in the field automatically syncs to the desktop version at your office, improving collaboration and saving time. Offline mode also supports usage in low or no-service areas, which is particularly helpful post-disaster.

“Another big benefit of using Forerunner is informing disaster analysis after a storm passes through. We usually go into the community to take a look at the damage – we have to quickly assess if structures have been impacted. If the water didn’t get high enough in the storm we can grant a permit on the spot, so knowing if a house has an Elevation Certificate can save us time. We might not even need to go into a house or make an appointment with a homeowner for an inspection.”
