Maintaining multiple versions of various software on employees’ desktops is time-consuming and costly. Computer hardware is expensive, and hardware failures can cripple an appraisal office.
Viruses are a never-ending threat. Our clients (especially banks) demand secure communications and methods of storing confidential information. Many banks have network security systems that make it difficult for them to receive large files.
Waiting for screens to refresh while data is transferred from the cloud to various desktop applications is inefficient and irritating. Existing report writing systems are difficult to understand and master.
Current appraisal databases do a poor job of tracking properties as they change over time, do not have useful analytics, and don’t have the ability to track trends and data relationships. Some queries take too long.
Most appraisal databases have not upgraded to the new Property Use Classification System. Current software forces you into a predetermined box for how data is categorized.
No convenient method for capturing photographs, comparable data, and field notes and syncing them to the cloud during or after inspections. Current software ties the appraisal process to one machine.
None of the current software allows for robust GIS capability.
Current reports are static documents that don’t take advantage of new technologies allowing a more interactive and immersive experience. Many reports still look like they were written on a typewriter, but users want a richer digital experience.
Current software does not facilitate an efficient review process or tracking system.
Current systems require multiple software applications to complete this process and are inefficient. We need automated error checking, validation and automatic archive.
