We’re growing fast and with that comes more input from our users. We love it! Thank you all for contributing your ideas to help us improve the Spectora platform.
Being a small team, the sheer volume of emails, Facebook messages, and calls we’ve been getting the past couple months has been overwhelming. We’ve come up with a few processes to manage it all and we need your help to make it happen. We’ll be rolling out in-app chat soon to consolidate communication and we’ve created a single channel for reporting bugs and requesting features!
We’re all about saving you time! We’ve rolled some new features designed to make your report writing even faster. Read all about how the faster report software in the industry just got even faster with quick-editing, a faster report writer, and a faster template editor:
We’ve been working hard to continue improving Spectora! While not as fun to announce as cranking out new features, the infrastructure upgrades and quality improvements we’re doing this month are making Spectora a more stable and performant platform.
Ready to switch your back office over to Spectora?
Our Training Center can help you with setting up your automated emails/texts, getting payment configured, and getting your Inspection Agreements in place.
If you’ve been with ISN for a while, you probably have a ton of data you don’t want to lose. We’ve made a data import script to move all your historical inspection data over to our platform. You’ll be able to maintain your agent contact lists, client lists, and inspection records. Our Business Metrics section will reflect all your past data, so you can always view the continuous history of your business. Continue reading “Transitioning from ISN to Spectora”→
ISN users now have even more flexibility with using Spectora! When integrating with ISN, you can now map your ISN order types to specific templates in Spectora. You can also choose not to import certain order types.
This allows you to have the right templates ready-to-go for your inspections every day. You also can keep your interface clean by not importing inspection reports you don’t use Spectora for. Here’s how to set it up:
We’re hearing it often – many of you want to switch over but can’t find the time to migrate your comments to Spectora. Now you can keep that template you’ve built up over the years without a ton of cut-and-paste!
Get a head-start on making the switch with our automated template imports:
We’re excited to announce the release of this highly requested feature, along with several other great improvements to both our mobile app and our web platform, including cost estimates, custom photo ordering, and photo galleries.
We’ve updated our SEO plans in response to your feedback! We’ve added a plan, dropped a plan, and adjusted pricing on our existing plan. (Not to worry, current customers – just like our software, your price always stays the same even though you keep getting more features!)
Find yourself adding the same attachments to every inspection? Life is about to get easier for you – introducing Default Attachments!
These are great for adding policies, warranties, or any other document that you include in every inspection. At Spectora we’re all about reducing repetitive tasks so you can grow your business more efficiently!
We’ve just released the ability to add multiple inspectors to a single inspection. This is great for multi-inspector companies that pair up on jobs or take the team approach on large buildings. Upon saving to cloud all of the inspectors’ data will merge together, allowing for faster workflows and efficient teamwork.
When scheduling a new inspection, simply select 1 or more inspectors:
Spectora can now submit your inspections to RecallChek and Inspector Services Group, allowing easy use of the RecallChek mobile app and ISG products like SewerGard, the Termite Protection Plan, and Alarm Leads without having to enter in data twice.
Spectora now integrates with ISN, a service that offers inspection scheduling, emails, payment and more. This might be a confusing move to some, as Spectora and ISN have a significant overlap in functionality.Here’s our perspective:
We’ve been hearing GREAT feedback from agents on Spectora reports:
“Dude… I love this. Way better and best I’ve seen so far. Big pictures like that are huge to me.”
“This is the best report layout I’ve seen.”
“I absolutely love the report and the software.”
Because your report is your product and one of your biggest selling points, we’ve made it easier for you to generate a sample report from your best inspection. Use it to promote yourself to new agents!
The past week we’ve built several user-requested features that we’re rolling out to our platform today:
Login-free flow for client & agent
Spectora is now even easier to use for clients and agents! We have removed the need for buyer and agent to login. We’ve replaced the agent and buyer dashboards with the new Inspection Page, the hub for all the people, activities and documents related to an inspection.
