iAssist is proud to present the definitive ‘previous inventory report’ solution! A while ago we wrote a blog about doing ‘follow up’ property reports on iAssist when the previous report isn’t yet on your iAssist system. This situation can arise when you have a backlog of previous reports you prepared prior before you discovered iAssist - or when a client hands you a report prepared by someone else. To recap – in such a situation you have three basic options. You can:-
1) Refer to an existing report and create a supplementary document that records the meter readings, the key schedule and then just notes and emphasises any obvious changes in condition.
2) Replicate a large part of the previous report on iAssist while you are on site and then proceed to add the new information at the same time.
3) Ensure that the previous report is entered onto the system before going on site.
We recognise that you might previously have chosen to create a supplementary property inventory report, especially if you don’t have time to enter the information on to the system yourself and you don’t have a tool to automate the data entry. But the third option, ensuring the information is entered onto the system before going on site is always the best strategy. This way you not only spend less time on site the next time you visit – it’s an investment because every future report prepared for that property will be much easier (and you never again have to have a paper copy flapping around).
Now we are excited to present a new way of getting reports logged on your system off site! With as little as 12hrs notice from receipt we can have any previous report entered onto your iAssist system on your behalf for a fixed fee of 2 per report! You will then have improved your database at a negligible cost - so you can go on site and create follow up inventory reports for that property without any paper at lightning speed. Once you’ve used the service, you’ll wish all reports could be handled this way! After all the hardest part, listing and describing every item, is already done for you! If you wish to use this service, please contact us here, we’ll keep you informed at every part of the process and stick to stringent deadlines!
