The key features
It is a real App. You don’t have to be online to use it. Just regularly synchronise with your App-Manager.
Discover the handy navigation. Unlike other inspection apps we have a unique tree structure that helps you keep an overview at all times.
This Master-Manager can be used for scheduling, but also contains all your reports. Of course, it can do a lot more.
You can generate and review multilingual reporting.
Avoid repetitive work. Thanks to lots of productivity tools, like copy-paste, duplicate, set and use as standard, start from reference objects.
The issue notation is more than setting the condition. It is describing, detailing, making pictures and sketches. It is also about preparing the issue handling, indicating responsibility, cost estimate, actions to be taken, create work orders, and make a job list.
You decide to work fast whenever possible and in great detail whenever necessary.
We make an important distinction between move-in and move-out inspections.
At a move-in, certainly the first time, you have to go for a detailed description. It is more than setting a condition. You can describe, set characteristics, and take pictures.
At a move-out, your focus is on issue notation. The app works slightly different. Your focus will be on issue-notation, not element descriptions. Because this issue list is very important for setting charges and organising the turnover.
And you have an overview per customer, landlord.
We work in cascade. This means that all data of consecutive inspection stay available, visible. From now on you will only note changes on it.
We support in-app signing and you can send out the reports directly from your app.
We have an automatic report generation and online preview.
We have different report-formats, for example with or without cost-details. For example: a move-in report is very different from a move-out report.
Discover some of the great features our property inspection app has to offer
Our property inspection app works offline on both iOS and Android tablets & smartphones
Create your own or use our pre-defined checklists
Our handy property inspection app allows you to create your own inspection checklists at any time on both the app and the online back office.
You can choose from one of our 15 pre-defined checklists and adapt them as you go, which saves you a lot of precious time. You can alternatively add the areas and elements manually on the app or back-office. It’s as easy as one-two-three.
Schedule your inspections and inspectors
A function for scheduling your inspections is a must-have for any inspection tool, enabling you to efficiently manage the inspection process. You can allocate times and inspectors for each specific inspection. This happens in the back office.
Of course, you can if you want also create an inspection on the go, straight onto your app.
Go into as much or as little detail as you want
We understand that each property manager, surveyor or letting agent has their own way of working. Some of you like to go into a lot of detail, indicating the color, the make and even the material of each element. Of course, you do not have to do this, you can also simply leave the element as is and indicate the condition.
Take pictures and create work orders
On our app, you can take pictures at any time, simply click on the camera function to take pictures, leave comments or make sketches on them.
We have even created a Dictaphone function for you to use if this is necessary.
This handy feature allows you to immediately identify a couple of things including, the person responsible, the action that needs to be taken, including work order creation and the cost associated with this.
Base your inspections upon previous inspections (eliminating double work and making you work more efficiently)
One of our main tools to promote is productivity is basing your inspections upon a previous inspection. This means when performing an initial inspection, you can base all of the consecutive inspections on this one. Meaning the next time you perform an inspection, you simply need to look for inconsistencies, which will half your inspection time.
Sign on the spot
We allow for on the spot signing. This means both tenants, landlord and inspectors can sign on the spot. We have a handy preview of the report that you can show to all parties involved before they sign and then have them sign on the app itself.
This can come in handy when your tenants are there with you during the inspection.
Of course, if they are not they can always sign at a later date.
Automatic pdf reports
Automatically generate reports. These handy reports include the notation of issues/remarks, along with pictures and sketches, which are all delivered to you in a structured way. Of course, it’s completely customizable. We facilitate a range of reporting, such a move-in and out reports, check-up reports, renovation checks, job lists, suggestion lists and many more.

Our property inspection app comes in 3 different packages, each one designed to fit your needs. Check out which one suits you best!
