I hope this is the right place to post this message…
I though that this forum might be a good place to do some inital research. My name is Andrew and my primary background is software architecure/design/development (over 10 years experience working at a large Bank). I have always had an intertest in home inspection and am fairly well versed in the basics of electrical, plumbing, structure, etc. and have a fair amount of exposure to contruction/renovations. I am from Ontario, Canada and am also registered as a Certified Engineering Technologist with OACETT.
My main question is what type of market is there for new home inspection software? I am considering starting to gather requirements in order design and build a fully customizable suite of home inspection tools. I know that there are others on the market but do they do everything inspectors want them to do? Any input/thoughts on the subject would be much appreciated. I also have every intention of becoming an InterNACHI member over the next few months.
