**Home Inspector Pro 4.7 is Out!
HTML REPORTS ARE HERE, MORE ISN INTEGRATION & IMPORTANT CLOUD INFO!
Home Inspector Pro 4.7 is loaded with great new features! Make sure to read this entire email for important info. The Windows version is on the site now. Mac to be released shortly.
For years we didn’t bother to create HTML reports because they didn’t have the awesome capability of a PDF to look the same on every device. Their look varied greatly depending on screen size, resolution, browser type, etc. Inspectors have always said they wanted to know what their clients would see on their screen and it just wasn’t possible.
All that has changed. We’ve worked on a project the last 2 years to create HTML files that look IDENTICAL to the high quality PDF you’re used to seeing, digital stationery, video, everything looking perfect.
With HIP 4.7 you can now generate both an HTML and PDF report at the same time. The HTML portion will be uploaded to the HIP Cloud OR directly to ISN for online access.
The biggest advanted to the HTML reports is that video will play on every device… desktop, mobile phones, tablets & iPads! Right now PDF’s look great and play on almost any device but a few people out there open their reports in PDF “Preview” programs and they had to be told to switch to a full PDF program like Adobe. This is changing too as PDF programs catch up but HIP 4.7 solves both issues.
The big advantage to the PDF is you can print out a great looking report and it can be stored offline by you or your clients, without any cloud service needed.
Note that the HTML feature DOES require the Cloud service as it’s being uploaded to our servers (this includes inspectors that use ISN!).
- Brand new mobile sync inteface on the desktop for simpler/easier/streamlined management of your inspections in the cloud
- Improvements in ISN integration.
- Automatic scaling of the program for high resolution monitors. More improvements are in the works here too.
- Clearer, scaled buttons allow for easier access to commonly used tools.
- Option added to turn measurements on/off sketches
- Much more! We’ll post the update notes to the HIP forum shortly.
- We have more exciting new features in the works!
IMPORTANT CLOUD INFO
A separate HIP cloud account is REQUIRED for each inspector to use HIP Mobile. A HIP Cloud account is also required to Upload PDF reports to the HIP servers, to Upload HTML reports to the HIP servers OR ISN (as we’re storing the HTML), and to do Home Energy Scores. If you’re not currently subscribed to the cloud you’re in danger of your service being turned off. The new HTML feature more than doubles the cloud usage so we’re adding features in HIP’s servers to help us reach out to those that don’t. If you’re emailing your PDF’s out or uploading them to ISN and not using mobile, you don’t need the cloud service.
Because of the new “chipped” credit cards, over half our users subscriptions were automatically cancelled when the new cards came out. While many of you resubscribed, there’s still a few guys that don’t read our emails or Paypal’s when cards bounce. It’s extremely important that you go to the HIP Website, log in with your account, click Pricing and resubscribe to the HIP Cloud to ensure your service continues working.
If you’re not sure if your HIP Cloud account is set up correctly, or even if you need it, feel free to email us at Help@HomeInspectorpro.com.
