    Default Looking to replace inspectvue with something else..

    I am looking for a new "narritive" style program to replace my inspectvue also. I do like the layout of the inspectvue software. Anyone know of a program that is similar to them?? Oh yea, the company tech support has to be reliable also.

    I've tried some others but I have not found any that produce a report as nice as Inspectvue. And I believe a nice report gives you the edge to get referrals especially if your compitition is "check list Charley." We all like those referrals. If an inspector will take the time to set up the narritives, and learn to type, reports get done fairly fast.
    Yes, sometimes it's a pain in the a#*. Sometimes I think I'll loose my religion when error messages keep popping up.... But I haven't found better.

    Check out 3D. It can migrate your info from Inspectvue.

    With 3D you can use it on a desktop, laptop, pocket PC, Win 7 phone and any Android device running 2.1 or higher with a camera

    I suggest Home Inspector Pro.

    How could I sleep with you messaging me at 3am

    Thanks though Like Bob said, Home Inspector Pro (HIP) will import InspectVue's library. Just ask Marc (the original poster of this thread) what he thinks.

    A template is not a software and you left that part out.
    Excel checkbox lists do not count by the way.

    Just kidding as your report is not bad though lacks detail or narratives for my personal taste .
    Is this Ben ,as your name is nowhere to be found here or on your site?

    Hate talking to a corp.

    Yeah lots of guys simply make a basic template with everything loaded as perfect then change anything if it is an issue.

    Too many variables in Chicago even in Similar construction.

    I have tried a bunch of the reporting packages. I am still most satisfied with my Word document. I think the preference is largely due to the requirement to use the Texas TREC report format.

    You would like Whisper. Extremely easy to use or seconds to create a report template. The age and or type of foundation could already be set up in a templet to insure you are covering your basics. They have the newest Texas requirements. It also takes 2 seconds to change what size all pictures are or drop them in at the same size and drag the corner to bliw up the pic.

    As far as narratives. I type every report based on the particular home. No generic placemenr here

    While Report Host may be a good program (I have no idea), the cost seems pretty high.

    I have tried several programs including 3D and Inspectvue. I went with HomeGauge and satisfied with the versatility. Caveat, every program you use is going to have something you don't care for. The full version is more flexible than the trial, but you can get a good idea of how it works. Their support is very responsive, the only thing I have to keep in mind is they are on the East coast and I am in the PST time zone so if I want an immediate answer, I have to call early.
