ATLANTA — Artificial intelligence (AI) may seem like a sci-fi concept instead of a roofing solution, but Pointivo has brought that future to the present with its new Spatial IQ: Facility Management (FM) data and analytic roof assessment solution.

Pointivo debuted the AI-powered solution at the 2020 International Roofing Expo (IRE) in Dallas. Spatial IQ: FM generates spatial intelligence using high-res imagery of roofs, buildings, and surroundings for easy planning, monitoring, and maintenance of exterior facility assets.

“At Pointivo, we aim to revolutionize assessment processes to empower more intelligent business decisions,” said Dan Ciprari, CEO and co-founder of Pointivo. “Through AI-driven spatial intelligence, our FM solution dramatically reduces time spent on roof assessment and inventory by automatically delivering finely detailed, accurate dimensional data and insights.”

Spatial IQ: FM can conduct assessments and generate roof inventory, delivering the information needed to budget for repairs, measure for replacement, create takeoffs, or track roof deficiencies — all while keeping staff safely on the ground.

With an initial focus on service offerings for commercial roofing, Pointivo states Spatial IQ: FM offers the following features:

  • Turn-key drone pilot flight.
  • High-resolution drone imagery.
  • 2D and 3D measurement data of roof systems.
  • Automatic identification of roof inventory.
  • Measurement of area, length and quantity of penetrations and equipment.
  • Advanced take off reports.
  • Automatic identification of roof deficiencies by section and type.
  • Sharable roof assessment reports.

National Roofing Partners (NRP) utilizes Pointivo's Spatial IQ platform as a key component of its newest product offering — AI-powered drone assessments.

“Traditional methods for assessing roofs and facilities are time and resource-intensive, which is why we are excited to partner with Pointivo to launch the Spatial IQ: Facility Management platform. It provides our partners with a smarter, safer and more accurate method for roof analysis,” said Deryl Kratzer, vice president of sales for NRP. “This single platform is a game-changer for our partners and customers, reducing onsite inspection to just minutes while providing unparalleled accuracy and consistency.”

Pointivo is debuting Spatial IQ: FM alongside NRP at IRE 2020. Demos and details on the platform, including special show pricing, are available to IRE attendees at the NRP booth #320.

Spatial IQ: FM combines AI, computer vision and advanced analytics. It generates spatial intelligence by analyzing high-res imagery of roofs, buildings, and surroundings to extract location, measurement, and understanding of physical assets and structures. To learn more, visit
