Let's discover the features and tools
The ultimate property inspection software
Perform different types of building inspections
The Building Inspector lets you perform thorough and detailed building inspections for a variety of purposes and reasons. Conducting regular building inspections is essential for good building management. Our Building Inspection App helps you to set up regular check-ups, be it for daily, weekly, even monthly use. This comes in handy when you are looking for maintenance or repair issues.
Please see the list below for types of inspections you can perform;
- Audit inspections
- Health, safety and security inspections
- Walkthrough inspections
- Annual reporting
- State of the building inspections
- Create your own inspections
Easily set-up your account with your buildings and checklists
We created a professional yet easy to use tool that can be set-up by you, yourself, regardless of the size of your portfolio. You can do so on the app itself or on the Building Manager, our online back-office.
Simply start creating a building, identify the areas and outline of your buildings, element checkpoints and so forth. Once you have done so, simply duplicate floors. It’s as easy as one two three.
Create work orders and maintenance jobs
You can add a work order or maintenance job to an issue you noted on the app at any time.
You can identify what needs to be done, when and indicate the urgency. You can if you wish even identify a person or team responsible to perform the job, leave notes and much more.
Schedule and receive inspections tasks
Easily access your inspections via the Inspection Tile. We made sure you are given the necessary tools to not only receive inspection jobs but schedule them for yourself and for team members. That way you can assess workload and streamline this process.
You can do so on our handy Building Manager or even straight onto the app if you wish.
Student housing inspections
A great advantage of using Chapps is the ability to have different departments working together yet separately.
We understand that room inspections occur most often through the housing department. They send through any maintenance that needs to occur, along with any additional information. That’s where the Dorm Inspector App comes into play.
With this handy tool, they can perform their move-in/out inspections, check-up inspections, room condition reports and evaluate common areas. Any maintenance information or security issues will then automatically be relayed back to you.

Organise your maintenance with our handy Maintenance Now App
Extend your Building Inspector App with our handy Maintenance Organizer and Maintenance Now App and take full control of your building maintenance.
All of our inspection tools can create jobs and work orders. The Building Manager even offers you some maintenance planning tools per building. However, sometimes this is not always enough.
That is why all of our inspection apps can be linked to our Maintenance Organizer, where you receive the tools to allocate maintenance, manage your maintenance teams or contractors and follow up on planning and execution. You decide on urgencies and priorities. You can even group jobs and launch a tender.
The maintenance teams or contractors can make use of our handy Maintenance Now App. This handy web-app can be used on any device. Here they can consult their jobs and work orders, receive tasks and directives and send feedback. Everything works seamlessly together through our handy single sign-on system.
Embrace the Residenz Portal
Our Residenz Web-App is a handy tool for students to use. They receive a login and can access their portal from any device.
This is a great tool for any manager to ensure the students rooms are kept in good condition and it facilitates communication between residents and the educational facility manager. The student can quickly register or communicate issues. You can interact through a handy message centre, send documents or announcements and much more.
