Going paperless


After 475 inspections I have finally gone paperless. Instead of using 50 pages of paper to do my reports I am now doing it all on a laptop computer. It takes me longer on site because I used to do my computer work at home. But not having to work when I get home is definitely a good thing. The only real issue I have found with doing it this way is I have to stop and input to computer when before I just scribbled a couple of words down and moved on. This gave me more time to be with clients but the tradeoff is worth it. Now when I go home it isn't to sit down and get a report out before 10pm, it is to relax. Home inspections have changed a lot since I started just a few (8) years ago. Hardly anyone does an inspection on paper anymore and for the forest that is a good thing. I can't wait until a program comes out that all I have to do is carry a tablet around and talk into it, never having to pick up a pen or type.
