Nottingham based InstantView Ltd has developed a ground breaking new product that helps make an accurate insurance claim after a road accident, thanks to the support provided by Transport iNet which is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme.

The ‘Accident Notes’ application uses photos to capture evidence of an accident whilst collecting location based third party data such as traffic levels and weather conditions.  The financial support and expert guidance provided by the iNet aided initial market research into road and insurance sectors and assisted development of a server that will store motorist data and communicate directly with the relevant insurance company.

Mark Habgood, Owner of InstantView Ltd, said:

Our application is not only helpful to motorists but insurers who pay out £1.4 billion annually for road accident claims. The information gathered may also help vehicle designers, road safety bodies and transport professionals to gain a better understanding of accidents to make improvements to current safety standards.I decided to commercialise this product after the original design won the European Satellite Navigation Competition in October 2011. The support provided by Transport iNet has been vital in taking the product forward and getting it to the stage where it can be downloaded, tested and enjoyed by anyone with a smart phone.

David Pickering, Transport iNet innovation advisor, said:

 InstantView’s ultimate aim is to offer the service as a ‘white label’ application for insurers, so it has great potential. The prototype is now available and with the server enhancement nearing completion, it’s an exciting time for the company and we wish them the best of luck.

The ‘Accident Notes’ application from InstantView is available on iTunes. The company is now looking for further support to assess the service provided by road safety bodies whilst managing field trials with fleet managers and insurance companies.
