I changed reporting software a little over a year ago and am now using Inspect Express Software. The program really puts out a nice report that my clients have really liked.
I used Reporthost in the past and it too is a good program, however when printing a report photos’ would contantly get cut in half and there was no real way to solve that issue as it is we based, plus it took forever to make changes as you had to wait on the server to catch up to you.
IE has a report uploading feature now to upload reports and then having the client log in to access their report anytime.
All the features they’ve added to IE in the last year or so are really nice. Unlike some states, in WI we HAVE to report the condition of everything…good or bad and IE modified their program to accomodate those with that requirement. Also added an easy way to insert photo’s in the report either in-line, word wrap or photo insert page (refer to photo 1, etc.)
The boilerplate setup is nice and you can start writing reports out of the box but it also allows you to change it any way you want. That does take a little time, but it is well worth it IMO.
They are constantly updating it to make it better and now it’s PDA compliant… (I don’t have one, but I’m thinking hard about it). It’s a nice report for those that like narrative description type formate over the check box only reports.
Anyways, just thought I’d give Mike and Rose over at IE Kudos for a great product at a pretty fair price.
P.S. They have NACHI standards of practice as well as a few state standards as well so you can follow your SOP with your report writing.
