- The first is SoundSmart Call Converter. This tool helps your office manager convert incoming calls into scheduled inspections: http://www.nachi.org/soundsmartintro.htm This is critical. The person answering your phone has to convert incoming calls into booked inspections.
- The next is the Inspection Fee Caculator. You have to set up the gray box first and play with it for a while to get it to bid jobs the way you want them. It considers your base fee, distance from the home, age of the home, size of the home, and how busy you are. Once you set it up, your office manager will bid jobs just like you would: Not too high where you lose the inspection to a competitor, but not too low where you leave money on the table: http://www.nachi.org/fee-calculator.htm
- The next is the Inspection Time Slot Estimator. You have to set up the gray box first again and play with it for a while to get it to schedule jobs correctly. It considers your base time, whether the home is occupied (occupied homes generally take longer to inspect), whether your client is attending (if your client is attending, the inspection will generally take longer), the distance, the age, the size, and what ancillary inspection services you are performing. Once you set it up, your office manager will schedule your day just like you would. You won’t be rushing or waiting: http://www.nachi.org/time-slot.htm
- The last is the online Online Inspection Agreement System. It allows your office manager to procure your signed inspection agreement ahead of time. http://www.nachi.org/onlineagreement.htm
Can you please update your post for the time slot estimator, with a link for inspectors. http://www.nachi.org/time-slot.htm
