Manage Your Renovations with FotoNotes

When it comes to managing your construction and renovation projects, it can be difficult to organize, delegate, and track progress on your jobs. This can be especially challenging if you are away from the job site and your project data is not consolidated, categorized and visible in a simple way. With the new FotoNotes Renovation Management feature, you can now manage all of your renovations faster and easier than ever.

Traditional Ways of Renovation Management are Outdated

Traditional approaches of estimating, tracking, and reporting on renovations could be a time consuming and chaotic process. Companies today generally have two approaches: 

Completely Ad Hoc

Completely using pen and paper, excel spreadsheets and endless streams of texts and emails. 

Traditional Construction Management Software

Using traditional construction management software products that are complex, dated, and not mobile or cloud enabled.    

The end result of either of these approaches is lack of visibility into the project, disorganization, frustration, extra work all leading to project delays and cost overruns.  

FotoNotes’s easy to use, powerful mobile and cloud based solution is here to help. FotoNotes simplifies the renovation management process, stores all of your information in one place and saves you time and money on every project.

FotoNotes’s NEW Renovation Management Features

How FotoNotes Works

How FotoNotes Works

Quickly gathering accurate data about your real estate and construction projects is a crucial step in any effective management process. In the past we were at the mercy of poor data collection processes which consumed an excessive amount of time and were inaccurate and incomplete. FotoNotes is the solution to this madness. Now, you can collect fast and accurate property data and photos in just a matter of minutes, all from a simple to use mobile app. So optimize your time on the job site by collecting and consolidating data in real-time, the first time, with FotoNotes.

Here’s how you can get started:

Getting Started!

You can use FotoNotes out of the box or customize it to match your specific workflow forms and reports.  

Custom Smart Forms

FotoNotes allows for easily customizable smart forms that support all data types. Templates are easy to build and modify to best suit your individual rules and procedures. You can generate forms that are most effective for your project on site and in real-time. 

Custom Smart Forms

Ready to Head Out? 

Once you have gotten the forms set up, you’re ready to start collecting data. Field staff members are now easily able to complete forms and capture photos of the job site. 

Mobile Friendly

FotoNotes works across Android and iOS platforms and is so incredibly user-friendly that anyone can use it! The app even offers speech to text capabilities and operates offline allowing the user to collect photos and signatures with just a few taps. FotoNotes allows you to submit results from the field instantly to your office, saving you time and sanity.

Fast Data Entry

The jobsite forms you create are available via your mobile device, offline or online. Once on the site, workers can then fill out the required fields in the form. That data can then be shared with the necessary parties to help fill out the work order. Even when they’re in an area with spotty cellular service, you can still get the job done. Your data and photos will instantly sync and send once you’re in an area with cellular or WiFi coverage. 

Powerful Photo Management

All the photos are consolidated in your form and stored in your FotoNotes Photo Manager, giving you the ability to organize and sort them as needed. You can instantly recall the work order and it’s corresponding photos with all of their details including timestamps, GPS information, upload details, and more. This means that the information collected will never get lost in an antiquated system. Editing options including crop, brighten, rotate and annotate from the web or mobile app.

Got What You Need? Now you can use it.

Now that you’ve got all of your data and photos in the cloud you can use FotoNotes reports, exports and integrations to put that data to work.

Create Reports

Now that you have all the data from your efficient smart forms, beautifully branded reports can be generated with just the click of a button. Once created, you have a beautiful PDF report that you can share with your customers, or your internal teams such as operations, finance or sales.

Connect with Other Apps

You can export all of your data into spreadsheets or integrate into thousands of other cloud apps such as Salesforce, Dropbox, Quickbooks and more.

Top 5 Challenges in Managing Property Inspections

CHALLENGE #1 – Ensuring Complete, Consistent Inspection Data

Companies in the Single Family Rental space report that one of their biggest operational bottlenecks is the inability to easily get complete inspection forms with organized photos and information. Forms that can be accessed instantly during and after a property inspection.

To tackle this, using a mobile and cloud-based inspection platform is often the best bet. Whether you are small or large, the right platform lets you standardize your inspection formats, easily collect property data digitally using mobile devices, and store it in the cloud. For best results, find a mobile inspection application that allows you to customize your own inspection forms, input all your inspection data through an app, efficiently add high quality photos and ensure the photos are easy to identify and categorize. Bonus points if the platform is simple to use, can get inspection orders out to a network of different vendors, and allows your field inspectors  to work online or offline.

CHALLENGE #2 –  Handling Large Volumes of  Inspections Efficiently

As your company grows and you start adding hundreds – or even thousands – of new properties, the volume of inspections will grow exponentially.  That growth will be a real challenge without the right partners, processes and tools.

So if you’re in growth mode, it is always a good idea to work with providers who deeply understand the SFR industry. At the same time, it is important to leverage technology to keep your critical data, documents and photos in a 24/7 accessible location in the cloud. The system you choose must also be able to scale quickly and affordably as you grow. Additionally, providers who offer documented processes and information flow will help ease growing pains.

CHALLENGE #3 –  Finding The Right People to Perform Inspections

At the foundation of every great company are great people. Finding the right team members, vendors and contractors to do inspections in a detailed, organized and efficient manner is tough. Reliability is always key – especially when it comes to local vendors. Property inspectors need to be highly organized and comfortable operating in a standardized format, as inspection form standardization is a must-have  for efficient growth.

With the right technology solution and forms that are easy to complete,  inspections can be done by almost anyone: real estate brokers, contractors, tenants and property managers – which substantially broadens your “pool” of potential local inspectors. No matter who is doing the inspection, it should be easy for them to report information directly and accurately from the field to your internal team..

CHALLENGE #4 – Integrating Your Inspection Data into Other Systems

A major difficulty for many SFR companies is managing information in multiple different systems.  You may have a product for managing your rentals, a program for maintenance, another that is used during the initial pre-purchase evaluation, and so on.  Often, you need to do manual data entry or import and export processes to ensure the right information is housed in each different system. When you add a mobile inspection platform, you add another tool that might require a manual process.  This poses a challenge, but can be eliminated by connecting your systems.

For property inspections, ensure that you have this integration capability in place. The best mobile and cloud platforms have standard REST based APIs which will allow you to push data out into your inspections for the benefit of the field workers, and to pull data back into other systems – even allowing you to automatically move the inspection photos or full reports.  For an even more seamless implementation process, see if your property inspection tech vendor works with an app integration service like Zapier.

CHALLENGE #5 – Capturing High Quality Property Photos

Many organizations don’t take the time to train their inspection teams to document property conditions with accurate photos. So finding a mobile application that makes photo taking dead-simple is important.

An intuitive mobile app should allow your field staff to know what photos to take and where they should be taken.  The product should easily categorize the photos, optimize them, and store GPS coordinates, date and time stamp information on each photo. A secure cloud storage system is also high on your checklist to maintain and manage all the property photos. Pro Tip: Train your field staff to capture high quality photos in the field for marketing the property and avoid the need for costly professional photographers.

NAMFS: Mortgage regulations require a more stringent approach to field services | 2014-12-10 | HousingWire

If your firm provides mortgage services, including field service, did you know?

Throughout the year, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has taken action against — and outlined expectations of — mortgage servicing providers and nonbank entities. Regulators are not accepting compliance exemptions due to limited resources, technology deficiencies or third-party failures. Additionally, clients of field services providers are implementing new work performance standards, documentation procedures, and periodic auditing of work in the field and the office.

Industry challenges are also affecting the clients of field services companies. Field services companies must adjust operational practices to meet client expectations. This year, we’ve seen field services providers incorporate technology to streamline and strengthen their organizations. NAMFS provided its members with a series of webinars to help sort through the technological offerings that assist with the management of legislative and client demands. The NAMFS business resource center invited members to live presentations on software that manages workflow, products that improve the securing of vacant property, and GIS data mapping aimed at helping members provide service that is accurate, efficient and compliant.

As a NAMFS member, FotoNotes is delighted to provide mortgage field service companies with technology and expertise to meet client expectations and assist with legal and regulatory requirements. Contact us to learn how.
