Horizon will make you stand out

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We operate as a team to do inspections. It allows us to each inspect different systems , it all uploads to the same report. It has helped us to be fast and effiscient. Less time report writing equals more time for Inspections and higher profit for your time spent.

Vorteile:

Horizon produces an easy to understand report that looks great and makes you stand out. You can personalize and add your own items to make report writing much faster.

Nachteile:

It doesn't have the ability for you to use videos unless you upload them to you tube.

10 year user, overall this is great software and makes a very professional looking report

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Vorteile:

Horizon inspection software makes for a great end product. Once you learn your way around, its fairly quick to make your entries in the field. I finish up on the computer just because its easier to review everything and to see the actual finished report. The realtors love the Action Item list that gets generated along with the report as this makes their job easier when they are developing their "ask" list for the seller. I've been using horizon for 10 years now and even when there have been some tech glitches, its always been easy to get a hold of someone you can understand and who doesn't speak in software terms you can't understand. I've tried most of the inspection software out there and stay with horizon because of how great their people are if you have any questions or suggestions.

Nachteile:

It would be great if I could embed video right in the report. That's the only thing that could lure me away at this point.

Antwort von Carson, Dunlop & Associates

Great to hear from you Dan! Horizon's final report is the most professional and complete in the business. Our training and support team are there to help inspectors get setup and hit the ground running.

Great check list software, but fails to allow for a library of specific narrative

3,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I feel a need to describe specific issues of the inspection with narrative comments, and although 'Horizon' allows you to view the last comment, it has no allowance for reference to a library of past related comments that I have made, which I could reference to a current situation.
Horizon refers to a vast theory data base but doesn't allow for me to describe specifically the clients situation in my own words unless I type them in each report....which I feel is necessary in giving them a 'client specific' inspection report.
I prefer a narrative based report and being able to refer to my past comments, rather than a checklist report.

Vorteile:

The interactive nature of the reporting, scheduling , billing etc

Nachteile:

I have to type my 'client specific' comments each time they may be required instead of being able to reference each one and tweaking them to my specific report needs. I understand that one can refer to the last comment, but I don't think you can scan a library of comments for quick reference to one that meets ones specific needs.

Antwort von Carson, Dunlop & Associates

In all these years Horizon keeps adapting and has never let us down

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: My overall experience with horizon over the last 10 years or so has been exceptional. I know what to expect and they never disappoint.

Vorteile:

Horizon has always stayed current with industry changes and trends. They seem to pride themselves of staying ahead of the ever changing demands of the consumer and software world and go to great lengths to make sure they stay competitive in the constant evolution of software while making the sometimes significant changes almost seamless to the existing user base. A very delicate dance I'm sure.

Nachteile:

A little more flexibility in the data capture would be ideal.

Vorteile:

Nachteile:

Steady performance and fantastic support

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Reduces reporting time giving me a life in the evenings. Produces a great looking report. Have received many compliments from client and agents alike.

Vorteile:

Designed by inspectors for inspectors. Horizon presents to the user in a very logical way. Best of all is movement within the report. It's very easy to navigate and know where you are.

Nachteile:

Page breaks can be awkward sometimes depending on picture layouts mainly. In a few cases I wish font size could be increased.

The best reporting system that we have ever used!

5,0 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: Exceptional, could not be happier!

Vorteile:

I think that the way our reports look is very important to how they are perceived by our clients. Prior to using Horizon we would have phone calls every day with questions about our reports. It wasn't that the reporting wasn't clear, it's just that by comparison, the Horizon reports are so easy to read and understand that our clients just don't have questions. It has saved us a tremendous amount of wasted time on the phone.

Nachteile:

The only criticism I have is that I would like to be able to duplicate pictures in the system. In other words, if I have a photo in the report that I would like to use a second time, or in two different locations, I have to upload the photo again. I would like to be able to simply COPY the phot and move it to where I want it. The other thing would be to be able to change the order of the photos in whatever section I'm in... the photos go into the report in the order that they are taken, I want to be able to slide them left or right to put them in the order I want. It helps to tell the "story" better.

Product Referral

Kommentare: The time saving aspect was critical to me because the former method I used was taking far too much time to do up a thorough, professional report. The second aspect of my former method was that I had to purchase thick manuals that were constantly rising in cost which I had to pass on to the client; increasing my overall invoice while my competitors were able to maintain their lower prices.
The ongoing training is something I've not received from the competitors at all. I always look forward to the short webinars which have always made my work look more professional and in less time. Hooray for that!

Vorteile:

The check boxes are simple to use, very time saving with an added simple method of customization option sets this software well above the last three methods I've experienced over the past 20 years. The extensive reference library is pretty amazing as well. For new inspectors to the industry; this software is a very in-depth, comprehensive program that really has everything within it to set you up for success. BUT, it is imperative that you take the time to customize it to your liking; however long that takes.

Nachteile:

The search library isn't as extensive or easy to articulate as described. However, I believe that further studies will indicate I am likely not doing something the way it should be done or haven't taken the time to read all instructions the get the most out of the software. One small point I find missing is to know if the client actually received the work order along with a simple way of resending it if not opened or received. Another is to maintain a list that shows the client has paid for the service rather than disappearing as soon as it is marked paid; also an automatic means of sending out a receipt.

Vorteile:

This was the first software I used as a building inspector. I was trained on Carbon Copy reports for clients. I have been using Horizon for 10 years and have found that it does everything I need (and surely more). The time saved using this software is immense and the reports are much more comprehensive for my clients.The customer support for any minor issues that I have experienced is fantastic.

Kommentare: As a long time user of the Horizon software I am very pleased with the product and the service. Over the years the software has been improved and updated regularly without my involvement. The customer service is excellent - an important feature for a one-man operation such as mine. I have received compliments from both clients and agents on the report quality. Although there was initially a learning curve to overcome the report writing time has now become very reasonable. I recently read an online comment about the Horizon software where it was referred to as the gold standard. I fully agree! representative

Vorteile:

My favorite feature is the off site data storage.

It's not free. Kidding aside, it does represent excellent value.

I am a new inspector and the ease of use with this program has given me the confidence, the push, to put together quality reports as if I have been in the business for 20 years. Agents and clients don't want to stand around for longer than they have to at an inspection. The software keeps me on par or quicker than the competition. The feedback I have received from clients and agents has been 100% positive. The reports are detailed and comprehensive. I want to thank Horizon for making my first year in business less stressful. If I ever have had a question, the support team at Horizon has always been great and the Webinar's are extremely helpful.

When I started my Home Inspection business, I tried several reporting software companies. Once I found Horizon, I never looked back. I knew I had found the one.
