[LISTEN] Insurers now using drones to asses damages and claims

Business Tech has run a story on how a number of insurance companies have started using drones or unmanned aerial vehicles to assess damages and claims.

Old Mutual Insure is one of the firms which will soon be using the technology.

Joanne Joseph spoke to the company's executive for High-Net-Worth Solutions Christelle Colman to find out more.

We are now in the pilot phase of the project so we have our drones, pilots trained up...so very interesting times.
