I have been doing hand written reports for 4 years. I am contemplating switching to on-site computer generated reports, but I am worried about the time it takes to complete the inspection. I have gotten my time down to 2 to 3 hours doing hand written reports depending on the size of the house. I really like the idea of computerized reports because of the professional look of the report, but I am afraid it will take a lot longer. I have read some comments from other inspectors stating it takes as much as 4 hours to do an inspection with a hand held or computer. If I have to cut my inspections down from 3 a day to 2 a day, I ‘m going to lose a lot of money over a years’ time. Is there a simple software that is easy to generate a report in a reasonable amount of time? I am terrified to make this switch, but I think I need to catch up with the times. Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
