    I still think that you need a physical inventory unless you are going to video tape every knife, fork, spoon, toy, ect in the house.

    We have a Standard Operating Procedure that details all of that for our techs that includes listing, photos, details, and so many other things. We have been burned on that "broken" antique rare vase that never existed. We also have a Remove Valuables hold harmless that we employ.

    If your property has suffered damage because of flood or fire, it is very important to get professional pack out & storage service to make sure your belongings are safe.

    There must be a bar code reading scanner to keep things straight. Issue with it is it will add a lot of time to the job. Service master has one

    We use contents Track from Xactimate and love it.
    We take a picture from all 4 corners of each room. The photograph each item and assigning a cleaning code to each item right there.
    It uploads to Xactimate in 5 minutes.
    Our last job for content cleaning was $7000. It took 2 employees with iPhones 4 hours to document and assign codes. (We bill for that time as well)
    The estimate has a thumbnail for each line item.
    Never had an adjuster question or billing!
    It makes their job easy.

    We use Assured Packout system with ipad we are happy with it. We've been using it for a few years. I would like to try the Xact Contents to see if the workflow impoves.

    We use Assured as well, it's pretty good and helps us get the job done. It's not broken, so we don't try to fix it. If we could have a device/app that would print tags as we type them in, that would help improve operations.

    Inventory and tracking is extremely important if you are working with customer contents.
