HomeGauge Services lets you upload your reports to our site for online delivery. Once you upload using our one button upload feature, you can send an email link to the client and agent using our automated process. The Internet delivery system makes a great marketing tool because every report you send to that agent gets stored in their secure, password protected vault! This saves time you would have spent digging up a 6 month old report and the agent loves the immediate access. Now you can call up your agents and tell them they will never have to fax or overnight a report again! You can even send it to the Listing Agent when permitted by your client, which creates another business lead for you. Whether you use HomeGauge, 3D, Porter Valley, Home Inspector Pro, or any other software (even your own Word or Excel form), as long as you can turn it into a PDF file, you can use all the benefits of the upload service.
Why create a plain inspection report when you can make it an interactive presentation? Give your homebuyers and agents a tour of the property with video, panoramic 360° images, expandable photos, and a live table of contents tab—all within the report. See a sample
Your real estate agents and customers can create a Repair/Request list (or project list) directly from the inspection report and attach it to their repair addendum form! This is a unique feature that only HomeGauge offers and can make you stand out from your competition. Read More
HomeGauge makes it easy to do some social networking, right from your report upload. When someone is happily viewing their home inspection report, they can click on one of these buttons. If they do, all their facebook or Google+ friends will see that they're recommending your inspection company on their newsfeed.
When you upload a report, a "Time Stamp" is created and posted on your behalf documenting when the report was uploaded. When you send the link to your customer and agent, you get a time stamp showing when the report delivery notification was sent. When they sign in to view the report you also get a time stamp which validates the report was delivered. Enjoy the peace of mind of knowing when they viewed it, or if they didn't.
It's now easier than ever to transfer your reports from device to device! Move reports from your Android or iOS device to a tablet, from your tablet to your Windows computer, or from your Windows computer to another Windows computer, all wirelessly through the HG Cloud, a part of the HG Services. This is a great service as well for multiple inspector firms that need to pass reports around, or if an office person starts up a report, an inspector in the field can download directly to his/her phone to start up the report.
Now in HomeGauge 5 using the HG Services you can backup your software settings (templates, user data, logos, etc.) directly to the cloud with a simple click. This makes it easier than ever to restore your HomeGauge software on a new computer when your computer crashes or you purchase a new computer.
With our " History" feature, you can view all activity on a report, including report views, report forwarding, and views by 3rd parties (when the customer forwards their report). Best of all, you can see a history of all these occurrences, so you know exactly what is going on with your uploaded report.
HomeGauge Software enables you to upload your reports to our site where they will be stored in your password protected vault for up to 5 years, as long as you use our HomeGauge Services. Just think, all of your reports at your fingertips, and the peace of mind of an off-site secondary backup. The backup can also be used to restore your report templates and database of real estate professionals.**
Use TRM (Time Release Messaging) to schedule email messages based on the inspection report. You can schedule a simple thank you letter after the inspection or marketing messages to help promote your other services. Emails can be scheduled up to a year after the inspection.
Need to send a report link to someone while on the road? Our mobile ready website makes that easy. You can do what you need to do on your mobile device. Nothing special needed. Also, HomeGauge inspection reports work great on mobile devices and videos work too!
You can now manage your appointments online. The HomeGauge Appointment Manager & Calendar integrates with Google Maps and Google Calendar. If you are using HomeGauge Software, the report information can be downloaded into your software. This eliminates double entry and ensures accuracy.
You can have your customers "Click to Agree" to your inspection agreement online. Most licensed states require the agreement to be signed before you perform the inspection. Now you can give the buyer or customer easy access to agree to your agreement online before you arrive at the inspection address.
We have two call centers that can book your appointments directly into your HomeGauge Appointment Manager, so you can download your booked appointments directly into your HomeGauge Software and see them with your integrated Google Calendar. Check out Personalized Answering & Scheduling Service (PASS) and Simple Solutions Call Center for your call center needs.
Each time a customer comes to view their inspection report, they have an opportunity to fill out a survey on your services. They can check whether or not you can use their comments for your own marketing purposes, such as on your website. These are maintained with your HomeGauge account and can be a great source for testimonials. They can also help you get other useful feedback from your customers to help you improve your services. This option can be disabled if you already provide questionnaires to your customers. More info can be found by logging into your HomeGauge account and clicking on "My Ratings" found under "Contacts".
HomeGauge makes it possible for you to setup a merchant account so you can accept credit cards online. We provide a secure online payment interface, which makes it easy for you to block viewing of your online reports until they've been paid for — additionally, a report can be immediately unlocked by the customer when they pay with a credit card online. Virtually eliminate collections by forcing payment before your clients can view the report.
These HomeGauge Services features can make your website even better.
Use BuildFax to run a property background check that can give you information on the construction history of a property. You can find out about permitted remodels, new construction, pools, demolition, roofs — it covers all the trades, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. These reports can help you prepare before the inspection, and you can share them with your customer or resell them for a profit. You can also just use the BuildFax reports for your own knowledge to help you with inspections (without sharing them with the home buyers).
With our partner, Air Chek, radon test results will be delivered automatically to your "My Reports" area on your HomeGauge Dashboard. The client will also automatically receive an email notification when the radon report is online and ready to be viewed. Not only does this save you from entering in the same information again for the radon test, but also saves you from having to check on the status of your radon reports.
Download ISN appointments directly into HomeGauge Software by using HomeGauge Services. This is a great timesaver for ISN users.
All home inspection software upgrades are included while user maintains HomeGauge Services.*
Enjoy the web presence and authority position HomeGauge has with search engines when it comes to finding an inspector. Many inspectors say that they get enough inspections a year from their listing to pay for their HomeGauge Services and more. We are listed in many search engines and we get many visitors each day. Your listing will be viewable when the prospective buyer comes to HomeGauge.com and searches by zip code — or sometimes the search engine will point to your page directly from the search engine results.

In a recent urge to get with the modern world, and prepare for my visit to Asheville in April, with some trepidation, I upgraded from HG4 to HG5. Being a program user, not a knowledgeable computer person, I called HG for assistance. I have always received top flight assistance whenever I have needed to contact HG. Your staff "held my hand" and painlessly and patiently walked me through the upgrade. Kudos to your staff! Looking forward to seeing you in April.

*Software upgrade eligibility:

To be eligible for HomeGauge major version upgrades upon its release (i.e. from 4.x to 5.x), you must be in one of the following categories.

Recurring services set up after the announcement of a new version do not receive the upgrade unless they have been in the free trial period previous to their signup or purchase a full year of service

**Note: If you upload your report using the PDF format, only the PDF file will be uploaded. This means that you will not be able to download that report in the future in a form that can be opened and edited directly in HomeGauge Software (uploading in the standard html format is required for that purpose). However, your PDF report will be backed up for 5 years and will be easily accessible at any time. Only the html format documents that include the main report will be downloadable to be opened and edited in the HomeGauge Software.
