Greetings all! The forum has been very helpful in narrowing down my list of software choices to Inspectvue and Reportwrite plus. My third choice was 3D inspections. I need some objective feedback on these two after researching these items for 4-5 days.
-Windows CE Platform/Pocket PC
-True point and click database
-Initial investment $1.345.00 (assumes $350 for handheld)
From reviewing the demo software the interface looks clean, extremely well done. My concerns are can you customized every page with a logo and other information? Is the only output in *.PDF format? Is it worth an extra $700 when compared to Reportwrite Plus.
ReportWrite Plus (www.ahit.com)
-Application that works inside MS Word
-Point and click features similar to Inspectvue
-Intial investment $600.00 (Creative pricing, this is for first 30 reports and assumes $350 for a handheld)
Not as user-friendly as Inspectvue from what I can tell from the demo. But the ability to customize the report is awesome and the final output is a MS Word file. I need flexibility and customization.... I'm concerned a little with the Palm software - is it robust enough? Finally, does it summarize too much? When inspecting bedrooms does it put all findings under bedrooms or bedroom 1, bedroom 2 and bedroom 3? $600.00 initial investment - cash flow is king!
That's it! YOUR thoughts and comments will be much appreciated.
