Corinth, TX - Today New Image Software, Inc. announced the immediate availability of Inspector FX 12. "This version is the best yet as it is now compatible with Mac & iOS devices as well as Windows 7 & 8" said Richard Jordan, President of New Image Software, Inc.. Owners of previous Inspector FX versions can now upgrade to this latest release.
Positive Customer Impact
Jordan commented, "Imagine how professional an inspector will look when they ask their client to sign the Pre-Inspection Agreement on an iPad at the start of an inspection. And, when you finish your walk-through, the report is practically finished since you are able to insert custom comments using Apple's new voice to text feature and take photos with the built in camera ."
Inspector FX 12 delivers the same easy to use features as version 8.5, however there have been significant improvements. "In addition to Mac and iOS compatibility we have added many new features such as the ability to exclude certain pages from a report, dynamic table of contents, more thumbnails and automated PDFs", said Jordan. "Inspector FX 12 is also available in a network version which allows office managers to instantly dispatch inspection orders and schedule updates. I'm even aware of one of our inspectors who has an assistant in the office proof reading reports as they are created. Talk about efficiency!" Jordan added.
Inspector FX 12 is fully compatible with the company's WDI FX software for WDI and WDO inspection system giving home inspectors the ability to manage all their inspections in one convenient location.
A 10 day trial of Inspector FX 12 is available for immediate download at www.inspectorfx.com. Inspectors who have purchased in the past twelve months will receive a free upgrade. IFX 12 users may add iOS capability for only $29 per month including unlimited support for iOS, Mac and Windows devices...
ARE YOU READY FOR THE FUTURE?
Inspector FX 12 for Mac is now available for immediate download. The most common upgrade request we have received is support for Mac and iOS devices. With version 12 both are now available. With these two new platforms and the great updates shown below, we are confident this will be the best version of InspectorFX ever! Windows users will be pleased to learn this version is fully compatible with all Windows Operating Systems Windows 7 & 8. Of course, Windows versions will also work with Apple iOS devices including iPad, iPad Mini and iPhone!
PDFs for Mac Users - As I am sure you are aware it has been very labor intensive to create multiple page PDF documents (like home inspections) on a Mac with Preview mode. This is the primary reason we have not introduced a Mac version with past updates. Thanks to our great team of developers that problem is now solved! They have created an awesome custom plugin which gives Mac users the ability to create a 60 page PDF report with lots of photos in less than 10 seconds. Furthermore, the plugin attaches each file to an email message, addresses it to your client, adds the address as the subject and includes a short note.....all automatically. No third party PDF program such as Acrobat or pdfFactory is required. I will tell you, our Windows users will be jealous so we are busy creating the same feature for them as well.
User friendly Mobile Layouts - We created custom layouts in Order Entry & Marketing modules to enhance your ability to handle all your daily office management tasks from the front seat of your vehicle.
Pre-Inspection Agreements - We enabled you to capture your client's signature right on your iOS device. Once you capture the signature a copy can be emailed or printed in seconds.
Prepare Reports - We made sure you have the ability to fill out then email or print all your Inspector FX reports from your iOS device. At the conclusion of each GHI inspection you can email your client and/or agent a Deficiency Summary to facilitate a rapid response to the seller. This improved level of service is sure to gain high marks from your agents.
Invoices and Letters - Again we enhanced your ability to create, print or email Invoices and Thank You letters with a few simple taps on your screen.
Photo Management - You will really enjoy the ability to insert Photos directly into each report page from your camera equipped iOS Device. Photos taken with digital cameras can easily be transferred to your iPad using an inexpensive SD Camera Card Reader Adapter or Eye-Fi SD Card.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE IMPORTANT!
Imagine how professional you will look when you ask clients to sign the Pre-Inspection Agreement on your iOS device. When you finish your walk through, the final report is practically complete. As mentioned already, taking photos is a snap with your iPad or iPhone's built in camera. And, with the new built in iOS Voice to Text feature you can insert custom comments as you walk through the property. If you speak slowly and clearly you will be amazed at how accurately it translates your comments.
As a past customer, the cost for the Mobile iOS Service is only $29 per month regardless of which modules you have purchased in the past. This fee also includes free ongoing Inspector FX support for each of your iOS, Windows and Mac computers. Note: This introductory rate is subject to change without notice.
NOTE: Full Suite subscription clients receive the Mobile iOS Service FREE of charge...
Added additional pages - Each section of the report now contains a total of 4 pages with thumbnail photos on each page. A welcome new feature includes the ability to automatically number each completed page of the report (including photos pages).
Selective Page Printing - We have often been asked for the ability to delete pages from a report. Version 12 contains the ability to remove any section by merely deselecting the checkbox on the first page of each section. In other words, if you are inspecting a condo without a Garage or Carport, you no longer have to include an empty Garage page with all the components marked as "Not Present". Simply uncheck the "Print this page with report" checkbox and it will disappear from your printed report altogether.
Dynamic Table of Contents - This is another welcome update. The TOC now displays page titles and page numbers for each section. Deficiency Summary pages are numbered D1, D2, and Addendum pages are numbered as A1, A2, and so forth.
Color Coding - We automated the color coding process for Perspective values.
Interior Rooms Label Customization - We've often been asked for more flexibility on Interior Rooms. With this version we made the Interior Rooms labels for items #14, #15 & #16 editable on each report. Previously the static labels were, (14) Number of wet bars, (15) Number of fireplaces/wood stoves and (15) Fuel Source. We also give the ability to set any value as a default entry in the Value List Editor while retaining the ability to customize each label on a particular inspection.
Deficiency Summary - We think your agents will really loves your new ability to number each deficiency item so they can easily refer to each defect by number rather than spelling out the condition on their Response to Inspection. In order to meet certain States' regulations we added a field at the top of the Summary section to allow disclosure notices to be inserted at the beginning of the Summary (in addition to the bottom).
Photo Mgr. - When navigating between report pages only photos for each respective page are displayed making it much easier to manage each section. To view all your photos as a group, simply navigate to General Information page where you can see all photos sorted and numbered by page.
