homegauge homehubzone

I see home hub zone has a homegauge beta. Are the current HG users going to ever see an update. I feel we might be pressed into HHZ software. It is curious that HG has no beta. I sent an email to the HHZ email to see the beta but did not get a reply. HG is there a plan for the old HG users.

Thank you. Sorry I do not do facebook.

Yes, their plan is to simply ignore us. No updates or news, and very little communication.


Were not ignoring anyone Dom. We do have a HG news Alert where we will release news. Facebook as well.

To Answer your question, we are not promoting HHZ beta because its not ready for HomeGauge users. HHZ Home Hub Zone code is more modern than HomeGauge’s code. So that will be the backbone or the motor so to speak. The body will be HomeGauge. Currently the beta still works like HHZ but we have wire frames or future layouts already drawn and tested that will resemble HomeGauge’s interface yet modern. When some of those changes take effect we will invite HG users to test it or be a part of the beta. Once that occurs then incremental improvements will continue. Once a HG user’s template can migrate to the new version then we will have a broader announcement. The new version has features in it that will be different than both HG and HHZ and designed to eliminate clicks or steps.

Some features HHZ brings is any device will work which means mac lovers can enjoy their device too. Automatic syncing of the companion to the main version without having to “cloud up and cloud down.” Merging reports for multi inspectors on the same house will merge automatically and as each users inputs their data. Many more cool things too so stay tuned. This year we will rollout several updates to not only a new whole version of the report writer, but the buyers dashboard, the Schedule Now feature in our online appointment manager and more.

I do read your HG news alerts.

I just asked the folks manning your booth a this past weekend’s FABI conference for an “update” about any updates. No updates available, to their knowledge. So, I am pretty much guessing when anything will happen.

My comments are based on an extended or protracted cycle of no significant release to your software in ages, beyond the occasional statement “it’s coming soon…”


Read my paragraph above and you will see there are updates coming out. We had an update to our main version last year and to the HG Companion Android last year. This year probably next month we will release another update to Android where forms will work in the Companion Android and customer signature on the form etc.

The staff at the FABI show was promoting the new update forms in the HG App!

besides Dom, it’s coming soon!

Looking forward to auto syncing reports with other inspectors and no more cloud. Very cool ideas

Having spent a significant amount of time developing the InterNACHI Narrative Library template for HomeGauge I had some concerns when I heard that something was happening. I was afraid I was going to have to spend months re-developing that template. I asked around quite a bit.

There were some very cool things that HHZ could do and HG is a good company. When you have a project under development you can’t always answer every question asked. I don’t know, but I’m guessing that HG will eventually come out with something new and good, and I trust them to make sure that their current users are taken care of.
