In this article, we cover how to leverage the Verisk + HOVER integration when starting with an Existing HOVER Job.

Video User Guide: Starting with an Existing HOVER Job

NOTE: All Xactimate screenshots reference the Xactimate Online (XOR) version. Some differences will exist if using an older version, such as X1.

NOTE: The workflow outlined below shows the minimum amount of information required for the integration to function. You may need to enter more information for your specific process than is covered here. The workflow depends on the claim number matching between HOVER and Xactimate.
