How ReportHost works
How ReportHost Works

Perform inspections using a phone or tablet, or by using field notes printed from your customizable templates. Then publish your reports through our website. They're simple to deliver, backed up nightly and can be viewed, or revised and republished at any time.

Using ReportHost for tablets
  1. With your device online, choose your template and start a report.
  2. In the field, offline, record your inspection findings and take pictures.
  3. Review your findings with your clients.
  4. When online again, upload your report with its pictures to our website.
  5. Log in to our website with a desktop or laptop and upload any extra pictures you took with a digital camera.
  6. Enter captions and add arrows or circles to pictures as needed.
  7. Assign extra pictures to report items.
  8. Spell check and make final edits.
  9. Publish, then deliver your report by email or printing.
"With practice, and for a reasonable house, you should be able to publish a report within a half an hour after your inspection."
