Yes they will. Even HIP states that you have to purchase upgrades and monthly subscriptions costs after purchase. Every 2-3 years you will have to pay for upgrades. One thing that I know is changes in technology thanks to my friends who work in both Mac and PC companies, as well as, the government. I learned basic language when I was 5 in 1977 because my father was in the Air Force working on all tech and programing for them. I got to play with tech in the 80’s that you wouldn’t believe even today. If you know something that I don’t, please share. If you purchase software it is already obsolete. I spent over 6 months trying out numerous inspection software and they are all basically the same. However, Spectora takes all of the BS out of the equation. One monthly charge and that’s it. I pay $100 a month and they take care of everything else for upgrades automatically. No additional charges except for adding other inspectors.
If I’m wrong, I will admit it and thank you for correcting me. The question for what software to get is asked constantly and there is no real answer. Yet even in InterNACHI forums , no one can agree. It would be nice if there was one or two we all could agree on. Or at least have a categorized system for inspectors: 1. Starting out 2. Part time 3. Full time 4. Companies with more than one inspector.
I’m really not here to argue, everyone finds what works for them and that’s what matters. I just think everyone in InterNatchi should get together and make this question obsolete.
Thanks for the feed back.
