Home Inspection Software for Builders

Introduction
 

The H.O.M.E.S. electronic Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) software system is an integrated feature of the H.O.M.E.S. Customer Service System, which may be purchased as a stand-alone product or as an optional fully intregrated component of H.O.M.E.S. home builders’ project management software. The system is useful for performing pre-delivery inspections, (or any other inspection/deficiency checklist,) generating, distributing and tracking work orders, revising customer profiles, and maintaining a history of all details pertaining to after-sales service/warranty matters.

Key Features and Benefits
 
  • Electronic Pre-Delivery Inspection Software System included as part of the H.O.M.E.S. Customer Service System which is available fully integrated with main H.O.M.E.S. system to eliminate double-entry.
  • Now available as a stand-alone product.
  • Home inspection software/PDI software the way it should be! Convenient, quick and easy to use.

  • Perform inspections electronically with or without Internet access. If Internet access is available and reliable, you can do inspections in real-time, or when used off-line, after the inspection you can synchronize data quickly and conveniently with head office by connecting securely from anywhere with Internet access. Of course, you can also synchronize by connecting to the head office network locally.

  • Perform any other inspections electronically and/or maintain deficiency lists (Construction/Pre-PDI, 30 day, 1 year, Tech Audit etc) in the same manner as the Pre-Delivery Inspection, and have work orders generated and distributed automatically.

  • Your inspection representative has complete access to all construction related information normally found in the integrated Customer Service module, (Purchaser info, upgrades/extras, colour chart etc,) even when inspections are done off-line!

  • Perform inspections without having to use a keyboard to type text using a portable tablet or notebook/netbook device. Deficiency descriptions can be entered quickly and easily by clicking on commonly used words with a tablet stylus or mouse pointer. (We recommend use of a touch screen tablet PC or Netbook which have recently become considerably less expensive and they are much more convenient to use than a pocket PC which fits very little information on the screen. You can use an on-screen keyboard or handwriting recognition to enter less commonly used words/phrases, or to add to the list of common words on-the-fly without trying to type while standing.) Checklist items may be associated with a specific room to refine the list of common words for quick selection.

  • Use your familiar customized PDI checklist. It may be as simple or detailed as you like with quick and easy setup.

  • Optionally pre-define by checklist item which trade(s) should receive a work order by default, and easily edit the list during or after the inspection. (A “PDI Deficiencies by Lot/Unit” report is provided to easily emphasize what trades are assigned, and which deficiencies are missing trade assignments before work orders are generated and distributed.)

  • Photograph deficiencies and attach the image directly to the deficiency, (even when working off-line) for viewing on-screen and optionally printing right on the inspection form and/or work orders. (Automatically synchronized with head office) You can even edit the photo to highlight the problem.

  • View and edit floor plans, images and other attachments, even during an off-line pre-delivery inspection!

  • Optionally print your customized PDI Form/Report on-site ready for signing using a portable or wireless printer. (The report template may be customized using Microsoft Word®.) (Tarion® compatible template provided for Ontario-based builders.) A different template may be assigned for each inspection checklist.

  • Collect signatures electronically right on the touch-screen tablet and email the completed signed inspection form to the purchaser(s) using a customized email message when Internet access is available.

  • Inspection start and completion times can be recorded just by clicking to automatically track the duration of the inspection.

  • Automatically generate and distribute work orders for PDI deficiencies from completed inspections, grouping deficiencies for the same contractor and lot/unit on one work order to reduce paperwork and clutter while still allowing individual deficiency status, contractor due date and warranty program deadline date tracking!

  • Flexible automatic distribution of work orders by email independent of your email client program. Work orders for the same contractor are automatically converted to PDF format and grouped together attached to a single email. Use template(s) to customize the email message and subject including a list of attached work order numbers for confirmation. You can use an individual or shared email address to send work orders, and even send a copy to one or more individual or shared BCC (blind carbon copy) email addresses for record keeping/distribution tracking.  (Can include web-based shared email accounts.) PDF conversion requires MS-Word® 2007 or later, or 3rd party PDF print driver.

  • Run multiple simultaneous inspections for the same project with or without Internet access.

  • Manages multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Multi-user/multi-tasking/network ready.
  • Remote Desktop/Terminal Services compatible for real-time remote access from anywhere via the Internet.
  • Multiple lots/units, reports etc may be loaded and viewed simultaneously side-by-side.
  • Easy to use intuitive interface even for novice computer users.
  • Built in pop-up context sensitive Help Manual for new users.
  • Quickly pays for itself by reducing costs and raising efficiency.
  • Priced affordably even for small builders!
