OpenSpace partners with Shepherd

OpenSpace , an AI-driven photo documentation tool, is now working with commercial insurance startup Shepherd.

As part of the partnership, OpenSpace customers will have access to the Casualty Pro excess liability insurance offering, which provides qualified contractors with underwriting credits and improved coverage on their Shepherd insurance policies, based on their OpenSpace usage.

“We view the application of jobsite capture as one of the most exciting frontiers in construction risk management, and OpenSpace is the clear category leader. Our partnership allows customers to benefit from their OpenSpace usage by introducing data from the platform as a new category in our underwriting approach. Our fundamental belief is that contractors who leverage technology to be safer deserve to be rewarded by their insurance providers.” – Shepherd CEO and co-founder Justin Levine.

“Over the past few years, we have been thrilled to see how the data OpenSpace helps capture and organize is being used in surprising new ways that impact our customers’ business. We’re excited to see how that data can help simplify and improve insurance coverage for builders. The industry needs better, smarter, and more cost-effective ways to manage risk and we’re proud to partner with Shepherd to make that change a reality.” – OpenSpace CEO and co-founder Jeevan Kalanithi.
