AR Direct Forms Strategic Partnership with IA Path

AR Direct is excited to announce its strategic partnership with IA Path, a company helping people become independent auto damage appraisers in as little as 30 days.

IA Path was founded by Chris Stanley in October 2016 after seeing a need for a new wave of auto damage adjusters and appraisers. He has 8 years of experience as an independent adjuster and hosts a weekly podcast and has a heavy online presence dedicated to adjuster placement and training.

“Catastrophes are trying times for everyone involved and it takes a serious amount of skill to do the job well,” says Barry Barbee, Executive Director of AR Direct. “The number one goal of this program is to make sure claim representatives who are extremely competent, properly vetted, compassionate, and have the best in class training are representing our insurance carrier partners and are able to extend red carpet treatment to those that are impacted by storms. The program we’ve designed ensures our representatives will leave a favorable impression on the insured and the inspection flow is flawless.”

Stanley noticed that the younger generations are presented with large barriers to entry and low pay which is turning them away from a great career as independent adjusters. New, qualified appraisers are in need of certifications and veterans to stand in the gap for them and AR Direct and IA Path look to facilitate this through a comprehensive hail catastrophe certification course.

“IA Path is dedicated to auto adjuster placement and training. I’m honored that AR Direct is partnering to make it a reality,” stated Stanley. “It seems AR Direct shares the vision to empower current and future adjusters with the tools necessary for success!”
