IMHO though, the real winner is InspectorOutlet.com . The other 6 sites all have consumer, real estate agent, and report download traffic fueling them. InspectorOutlet’s traffic comes almost solely from inspectors.
The biggest thing I want to see is the ability to have someone sign a inspection agreement electronically well before the inspection takes place without having to go through all the steps you do right now. Ideally a link would be included on the thank you for booking email that is automatically sent once you book an appointment through your system. Once signed an automated email would come to me and the client with a signed PDF attached. You also should get rid of the force sign “after the inspection” before I release a report option. That can get people into some trouble IMO. Otherwise great product keep it up.
Russell, our attorney is customizing an inspection agreement for every state and province in North America and for every ancillary inspection service, for every state and province in North America, and will keep them all (potentially thousands) tweaked as case law forms for each. An daunting task. I’d be willing to let HomeGauge integrate with http://www.nachi.org/onlineagreement.htm if you are interested.
Funny…we have many inspectors too who have their buyers come to their own website to pick up the report. They get branding out of it so it makes sense. Its us in the background as we display their report in html for the inspector. That is not an apology its a feature PDFS are boring …but html is video, expanding pictures in HD and …more cool features that pdfs cant do.
Actually, unless you’ve changed things the client still gets redirected to the HomeGauge site once they log into the inspectors site. Our inspectors clients stay on their inspectors site 100% of the time.
Sean didn’t tell you that we have video in our reports coming out? We had a long discussion about it in Nashville. We’re testing it internally now, stay tuned! Oh, and PDF’s do have expanding pictures, always have.
