There are a half dozen excellent home inspection programs out there. What's this one do that they don't?

I've yet to find any that make me anything other than scared, except Cramerware.

I've yet to see software that "writes" an adequate report, including my own.

The boilerplate in all of them is horrendously bad. The result is an entire generation of HI's that are "writing" horrendously bad reports. Passive voice prevails, & English majors w/ minimal experience in the field have somehow ascended to lofty positions of perceived knowledge.

At best, inspection report software takes (what should be) a relatively simple task & obfuscates the process. At worst, they provide an opportunity for marginally skilled HI's to supply massive amounts of words w/little useful information for the customer.

This "profession" is destroying itself very effectively w/confused & poorly designed reportage. I shiver w/every new software offering that allows newbies to come up w/ still yet another format.

It would be nice but I doubt it,as he would have to pay for the booth!

By the way Pat, if you do want to advertise try contacting the owner of this site. Mike would love to help you promote your product. Also if you would like to send me a full working copy I would be glad to review it for you and give you my honest opinion.

Kurt, I just registered with TIJ. How can I get info on Cramerware? I've search everywhere. I'm hiring a new inspector; anything that will 'keep it simple' is what I'm looking for. Thanks, Bernie

Hi,

That's because there is no such thing as 'Cramerware'. Look for Intelligent Reporter authored by Mark Cramer. While you're at it, check out our primary sponsor's software, Inspect Express at http://www.inspectexpress.com. A new version has just come out and it's getting better and better all the time.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Mike
