Default Re: No report software

Does anyone know of a software system for a small company where I can get add on licenses or programs/apps for employees. I looked at 3D and HIP. I would prefer a mobile app and a scaled down pc version. Don't want to but full scale versions for employee inspectors when they only need half of it.

Dom at HIP has been great but there are a few things I want that they don't have

Wow, old thread!

Garrett, what is it that you want that we don't have? We definitely have an awesome mobile app and PC/Mac version. Your employees can only use mobile and send you the reports to generate if you want. Or you can do team inspections and merge. Or use the HIP Draft feature to lock inspectors into being able to generate reports but not use it for moonlighting.

Hey Garett,

Coincidentally Spectacular has team member licenses for half price. Spectacular is the best mobile inspection software available for iPad, iPhone, Android 6+ or Windows 10 and is the only program that allows you to generate and send PDF reports from your mobile device or desktop computer.

Spend the down time with your wife, kids, motorcycle, gun, surfboard or brew some beer. Time much better well spent. JMHO.
This is how I feel about it also. Why do you have to have a proprietary report program? When I was a contractor I used existing contracts and made sure my scope of work clearly defined and communicated to the clients what they were getting and what they weren't. Took me a few hours but saved many more hours down the road. As a 203K consultant the biggest problems I see when I get someones paperwork is vague descriptions and bad communications.

I do my home inspection reports and always have a summary and people including agents tell me they like my summary. Other guys on this form say summaries are a waste of time. I'd say buy a report program and tweak it a little but as Stephan says his time is worth so much an hour then that's what your homemade program cost is.
