No, and here is why. When I was doing either the wind mit form or the 4-point, I don’t remember which, I thought to myself, this will be great. I can sell these and everyone will be able to use them! I talked to a few others who were doing it and realized, that although I can design a program that “I” can use, not everyone will be able to…for different reasons.
It is why all of the inspection software has so many options. Each inspector has a different report writing style and the software has to be adjustable enough to allow for that. Which is somewhat ironic in the fact that everyone who uses one type of inspection software, produces what is basically, the same report.
You can take insurance forms and make them fillable with Lifecycle, but to take time even if you had the skills** to make your own comprehensive reporting software is a waste of time when HIP will give you a $100 discount because you are a member of NACHI.Why reinvent the wheel?**
I took that Tower Hill 4-P and make it fillable.

Some of us have been doing that for nearly 20 years or more. I wrote my first inspection software program in 1996. What I have now is so far superior to the other programs, it would be foolish for me to even bother with them.
I have, in the past, downloaded other programs, but then you have to customize those, which in some instances can take a great deal of time, and as has been the case, they still do not do everything you want them to do.
It took me a week to design, test, and perfect the latest version of my program. I can do a 4-point, wind mit, roof cert., and home inspection all at the same time. It also only takes 15-20 minutes to finalize the report, which if need be, can be done onsite.
