Member Monday: Inspect Point’s ITM Software Makes Fire Protection Inspections a Breeze
NFSA Staff was able to sit down with Drew Slocum, co-founder and vice president of strategy at Inspect Point. Drew shared his company’s history, services, and relationship with the NFSA, as well as what’s new with Inspect Point.
Inspect Point was founded in 2015 and is a revolutionary software platform that focuses primarily on fire protection inspections, from scheduling to documentation, and proposals. Inspect Point’s state-of-the-art software is tailored to fire protection contractors and serves as a one stop shop wherein contractors can schedule and document inspections.
Inspect Point doesn’t stop with documentation, however. With just the click of a button, users can generate a report or proposal for their customers. Inspect Point is set up so reports and proposals will include the contractor’s letterhead and logo and the customer’s contact information. Inspect Point also allows the contractor to gather the customer’s signature in the field, ensuring compliance and minimizing delays on the project start time.
This quick turnaround for reports can be done from an iPad or similar device, eliminating the need for printing and allowing the contractor to get a proposal to the customer on-site. Furthermore, these reports can be sent back to the office where staff can begin ordering parts and scheduling staff immediately.
Inspect Point is available in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, and is available in English, Canadian French, and Spanish.
