A Home Watch Service company based in New Jersey has turned to GoCanvas to help it keep a watchful eye over it’s client’s residences. The company utilized Canvas’s Send Us Your Forms program to have its inspection form built by the GoCanvas experts for free! Then its administrators became very familiar with the GoCanvas App Builder tweaking the app and testing it until it functioned perfectly. They even built another app on their own – a work order to be used in the event something needed fixed while the homeowner was still away.

The company’s most frequently used app, however, is a homewatch checklist. The app guides the inspector through the interior and exterior of the home prompting them to document everything from weather conditions and newspaper delivery to trash bins, thermostats and security systems. There’s even room for the inspector to enter preventative maintenance suggestions should the inspector notice that a piece of equipment is not in optimal condition.

The GoCanvas app also allows the inspector to snap pictures at every step along the way in case he encounters something the homeowner would want to be informed about. Once all the photos and data have been captured the inspector completes the application and email it to the client. Imagine being away on vacation and receiving photos of your house taken moments earlier. It’s sure to give the vacationer some piece of mind and the inspector some extra time. He no longer has to type up the inspection report for the client to see because all the data is available immediately.
