    Default Home Inspection Software

    I am not a Home Inspector, but my friend is and has been one for 20 years. I am a business and technical consultant and am trying to help him out.

    He is sort of "old school" and is looking to try and streamline his process. Any recommendations on software to assist in reporting, particularly with strong iOS (iPhone, iPad) integration?

    Currently he takes paper notes (with duplicates given to clients at end of inspection) and photographs on an older digital camera. His wife then types them up in report form and he reviews before forwarding to client.

    He is looking for a tool where he can upload photos directly to reporting software and do most of the "checklist" updating and send it directly to his wife with verbal (or written) notes so she can update (he is a two-finger typer and need help typing stuff up).

    Any assistance in pointing me in the right direction is appreciated.

    Apologies in advance is this is the wrong sub-forum or inappropriate for this forum.

    This is from the Reports link on the left sidebar on this site. All are good..

    1 . Home Gauge Software - [Report link]

    The most versatile and modifiable home inspection program on the market today The software includes several different inspection templates (commercial, residential, condo, multifamily, etc.).

Change column headers (i.e. Good, Poor Unsatisfactory, Defective, etc.) to any rating you want. Or, eliminate all ratings and create a narrative template.

    Be aware that it is likely that the transition to a computer-based reporting system will substantially increase his reporting time, even once he is thoroughly familiar with the program.

    If you have these three, you have everything you could ever possibly want.

    In order, I think the prices are about $600, about $100 and about $30.

    Another bit of advise to give him....write up your own inspection reports. I could never, in a million inspections, leave it up to someone else to write my reports; wife of no.

    He writes the reports. His wife types them. :-)

    Thanks for the great feedback! Currently looking through all the links to see what will work best for him!

    Lightbulb Re: Home Inspection Software

    Good Morning. Here are some blogs about an inspection software "allinspections" that has both a smartphone and tablet (iPhone, iPad, Android) interface as well as the ability to use it on the PC (to schedule and such). The goal is to finish the inspection on site via your smartphone/ tablet. New inspection types are added to the line up quite frequently. Right now allinspections has 4-point, wind mitigation, roof condition, WDO, and Texas TREC. Full home comes out on 9/19. Check it out, they let you do a trial.
