Pros: Im still discovering things so im not sure what i like best yet but i like all the back office automation stuff a lot!

Cons: it doesn't have a neural interface up-link to auto fill my thoughts directly into the report. Oh wait that technology hasn't been invented yet.

Overall: Saves time, The most valuable of all things!

The most efficient, modern and well thought out software I have ever used.

Pros: The support team. When something is this great already, and on the rare occasion I have a question, they take care of it immediately. Like NOW through chat if you want. You can't put a price on that, especially onsite during an inspection.

Cons: Cannot think of anything yet. I've had minor concerns with a few features but they did updates to fix them so quickly that it wasn't an issue really.

Pros: Their is so much I love about this product. First, one of the most important things for me is customer service. Someone always gets back to me relatively quickly, even on weekends. Cant beat it. The whole team is very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and great to work with. After you get use to how to set up, customize, and use Spectora its very impressive to me and not hard to figure out. I like the Zillow page popping into the dashboard, the reminders, the calender, the customizing ability to the way I do an inspection, and saving me time with producing a high quality report. It is a very well thought out product and just when you think it's great , the team breaks out with another awesome feature. I'm still learning . Spectora is taking over. Keep up the good work !!!!

Cons: There's really nothing that I don't like about Spectora. It takes some time to learn and set things up the way you want it, but that's with any software.

Pros: Avant Garde - Like everything nothing is perfect, but cream rises to the top - Marketing wise, it's great to have pride in your reports , Spectora makes that easy
-They thread the needle just right between offering features and ease of use.

Cons: Not the least expensive, but everyone knows the old saying. and when it comes to a web site and reporting software, not wise to go against the old proverb.

Spectora is easy to use, has great customer support, and the realtors and clients love the report.

Pros: Spectora produces clean easy to read reports. The software is very intuitive to use. I am a new inspection company, and was quite confused about which software I should go with. Looked at some of the competition, and am so glad I found Spectora. Cost? worth every penny.

Cons: Have not found anything to complain about yet. Don't think I will. If you are a newbie like I was, this software company will help you get going.

Overall: The software lets a guy who is newer to the industry look like an old pro from the first report.

Hands down the best software I have tried! Been using for a year now, excellent!

Cons: There is really not much negative I can think of. It is a touch pricey, but well worth the expense..

Overall: Fast, easy and professional reports. I get my evenings back too. When I leave the home Im inspecting I am done. Best business move I have ever made. Could not be any happier.

Pros: The software is very user friendly and is the complete package. Spectora has put a lot of thought and effort into making it easier for the inspector as well as putting together a report that clients and their agents love. But what I discovered starting out and trying to build a new business from the ground up is that Spectora is more than just a software company. It was never doing an inspection that concerned me, it was how was I going to be able to set this all up and keep it all organized? Then I found out about Spectora. Cus, reps. came in and did a presentation for us. I left there and went and sat and processed what they said. It was then that I realized Spectora and their Jumpstart package was exactly what my business needed. I came home and signed up that night. I sent them a message and to my surprise they responded back immediately! They walked me through the process and were very professional and personable. Designed my website and I could not be happier about it. It is better than I ever imagined. Helped get it going live and setting up my Google My Business and Yelp accounts. They have handled all the stuff I didn't know how to do and let me concentrate on what I did know about the business. For that I can never thank them enough! Spectora truly has helped my dream become a reality!

Cons: I can not think of anything negative about the software or Spectora. They have not only delivered on what they said they would do, I feel they have gone above that. For that I commend them.

Pros: I researched several other programs and Spectora initially stood out to me because the reports have a look and "feel" that are more modern and up to date in appearance and navigation. As a new inspector, I chose Spectora because of its ease of use and the top notch customer support they offer. The set up has been incredibly easy and even though I am new, I will produce reports that show a level of competency to match tenured inspectors. The templates are easy to navigate and build and I can even make changes, mid inspection, if needed. I can also see that I will, very quickly, be able to produce a finished report as I walk out the door of an inspection. That will save me time and money.

Cons: So far, I can honestly say there are very few issues that I would say I don't like. Every home inspector runs his/her business differently. It would be impossible to come out with a program that would be perfect for everyone. Spectora has a lot of flexibility in its setup to meet individual needs. I am quickly learning that most of what I think are issues actually have a quick and easy customizable feature that makes the program a good fit for me. Spectora also utilizes a couple of different platforms where they stay engaged with their customers and are constantly working to improve the program based on recommendations they receive. That tells me that this program will never seem "out of date" and will constantly keep up with our changing world.

Cons: Its be nice to have more pre-built templates for different homes. Also, common annotations should be included. It would be nice to haver the NHPA-33 and others integrated into the software. Also, more options for the client to pay with. Square, Paypal, etc.

Pros: Its ease of use, its constant progression, the presentation to the clients, the accessibility of the developers, the Spectora community all make this software an exciting thing to be a part of. I would have given it a 6 star review for 'value for money' if I could.

Cons: I've got one; the fact that I can't yet use the online scheduler because it won't let me automatically add a tax percentage to the inspection total.

Overall: A great software AND business management tool

Pros: I love how easy it is to customize the software and navigate your way through the dashboard. The design team did an amazing job on my site and made the entier process very easy and fun. Having both my software and web site through Spectora made the integration between the web site and the software smooth. I feel like being a newer company allows them to have the latest in software and offer the latest trends. I have found everyone there to be helpful courteous and professional.

Cons: I wish i could buy the software outright and then pay for the updates when they occur for a small fee. Having the option of updating or not would be nice too. Possibly even offer a discount on the software and updates to certified inspectors and loyal customers.

Overall: Integration between software and web site and increased exposure.

Pros: I like having the freedom to tailor the software to meet my specific needs. Every Inspector has their own preference on how they perform their inspections. This program provides the user with the flexibility to "have it their way". The software designers have applied feedback from the inspectors to implement updates on a regular basis. The designers listen to the feedback on Facebook and other platforms to gather the information. The automation portion of the program sends reminder notifications to the client and agents, In addition; the system provides the inspector with the option to send out the agreement, and invoice. This software system is the complete package.

Pros: Constant updates to improve the software both proactively and in response to users requests. A clear and professional report that realtors and customers love. I feel once I have finished all of my customizations and have been inspecting longer I will be able to leave the home with 90% of the report completed and have only to review and add some details.

Cons: It is difficult to provide cons as any problems or issues experienced are quickly addressed by the staff. There is the occasional glitch or issue, but it is quickly fixed.

Overall: Amazing home inspection report software that makes my job in reporting the condition of a home to the buyer easy. It provides a very clear presentation to the customer and realtor with realtor friendly recommendations interface. It also provides easy online payment interface that I use seamlessly with my financial institution. Customers and realtors are extremely happy with the resulting report.

The Spectora staff is very responsive to all suggestions users have and they are constantly (almost daily) improving the software.

Pros: When I went looking for a software program to launch my home inspection business there were a lot of options to choose from. After reviewing the field I narrowed my search to four, two older and two newer. At first it was difficult to determine which program was going to work for me. Did I want price, ease of use or a quality product to weight my final decision? It wasn't until I began to actually work with each program that I quickly came to realize Spectora was going to fulfill each of those categories superbly. As a new inspector, I have found the learning curve has to be surprisingly short. The program is intuitive, the finished product is polished and the support is incredibly personal. Perhaps what I like most is knowing that I am part of something that is being built from the ground up with inspectors in mind. New features are added with direct input from users and the online forum that is very supportive. This program is not hype, it's solid performance, with lots more to come.

Overall: The initial con for me was the price. I was hesitant to commit to a monthly fee vs a one time purchase. Six months in, have to say, what was a con for me initially has become one of it's strongest pros. You really do get what you pay for in this life and with Spectora the value is there, hands down. I feel as if my monthly payment is providing my buisness with a dynamic product that adds value almost weekly with its upgrades and product support.

Amazing company with even better service. Look forward to growing with you guys!

Pros: The software is incredibly easy to use and making changes in the template, capturing photos/video, and sending to clients is as easy as a click through the app.
Instead of releasing updates every 6 months or longer like most Inspection software companies Spectora releases updated as often as every few days.

Cons: I would like to see an auto delay option allowing me to choose to have a report held and auto sent 2,4,6 hours after I publish it. If I need to make an edit before the delay I could jump back in the report prior to delivery.

My only mistake was not using it sooner! Why did I waste so much time on inferior software?

Pros: I used it for two weeks to make sure it was as good as I hoped. It wasn't- it was better! I chose not to import my own observations, I just added them to the existing template as they came up. After 2 weeks I was pretty efficient and a good working library/database. I held a one hour office meeting to roll it out to the other inspectors and by the end of their second week we were all thrilled with the ease of use, the ability to modify both the report and the template as needed (or not!), the intuitive navigation and lastly the quality of the output. All of our inspectors have gained back up to one hour per inspection into their lives. I love this because they are more willing to do another inspection in a given day, they love this because at the end of the day- its really the end of the day. Gone are the days of heading back to the office to write an hour long (each) report. We've all gained capacity, our quality has gone up and we've moved to a better work/life balance. Win win win!

Cons: I'm not going to make something up just to fill this box. I really don't have a complaint... maybe in a perfect world when proof reading I could "edit on the fly" instead of toggling back and forth between the preview/publish and the edit environments.

Overall: Improved quality, improved report delivery speed (on site), improved work life balance for my self and my inspectors, happier RE agents. Truly the solution that we've been looking for, for years.

Pros: Spectora is an amazing software. The automation features and the simple to read and navigate report format is incomparable to any other reporting software. Using two other reporting software's before discovering Spectora, I'll never change again. Spectora has revolutionized my business, I couldn't be more satisfied.

Cons: There is very little to dislike with the software however it would be nice if there was a feature when editing your template to show you how the note or section will appear when using your template at an inspection.

Pros: The things I like most about the software are as follows. The report presentation on both HTML and PDF is fantastic. The software is both an app and web based so I can tweak my template on my desktop but complete the inspections in the field. The template allows me to include pictures so I don't have to add those later. It supports video and location tagging. It helps me track what has been completed and what still needs to be done. The agents like the reports because they have the ability to easily pull a repair requests. The different categories make it clear and simple to differentiate between a serious issue and a maintenance issue.

Cons: It would help me out if there was a way I could start a finding with just a photo and then come back later. I know that the idea is to complete the report onsite, but sometimes the homes are in such bad shape that completing the report onsite just isn't possible when you've a full day scheduled. Having this ability would keep me from having to pull all the pictures in from my phone later. Because when you get on a house like that with time constraints, taking pictures is all you have time for.

Pros: There's a lot to love about this software, but overall, I love how modern and clean the reports are. It's incredibly user friendly for everyone involved, the inspector, agent, and client.

Cons: Not able to choose specific defects to go into PDF summary. But that's it! And i'm sure they'll add this sooner than later.

Pros: The software is beautiful, easy to use, has excellent customer service (even tolerating and answering some of my ridiculous requests) fluid, constantly updating with actual features, hands on developers... on and on and on I believe this IS the next generation.

Cons: It still has a way to go before it reaches its full potential. It's fun to be a part of that process.

Overall: Makes my job, and my home life much more enjoyable. Saves me time. Allows me to present a beautiful product to my clients which raises the value of my company.

Spectora home inspection software is a great product.

Pros: I like the simple read for our clients. Spectora makes for easy navigation through the Inspection Report with tabs and directional instructions. Tech Support/Customer Service always have the answers or will give my questions/concerns their due diligence to find an answer.

Cons: I don't like the fact that you cannot reach customer service or tech support when needed. The work we do will, at times, have a computer glitch or other issues and getting immediate help is crucial to the promise we make to our clients of same day report.

Pros: We have used several of the other big name softwares on the market. Spectora by far has been the best and easiest to use. We have many real estate agents complement us on the new look at the report and they love how simple it is to understand. The customer service with Spectora has been phenomenal they are quick to fix things and respond to questions we have. With three different inspectors in our company Spectora has been a huge timesaver and has eliminated many of the issues and headaches we used to have. This software has made on site reporting a reality.

Cons: Though they are working on it as we speak so I am sure this won't be a con for long. The scheduling system needs some tweaking.

Overall: The biggest thing we got back was time.

Pros: The software is extremely easy to use and looks better than any reporting software on the market. I received a lot of feedback from my clients stating that they love the look and they loved how the photos are integrated in with the report. The customer service and Technical Support is top-notch. I highly recommend Spectora!

Cons: The only downside is that some of the more technical features are in the process of being developed. But based on what I've seen over the last few months, they will be added soon.

Overall: A better-looking report and faster report riding time. Which translates to more time with my family.

Pros: The "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" concept makes it super user-friendly which means the learning curve is very low compared to the other "competitive" software out there.

The software also incorporates lots of top-notch abilities such as drag-and-drop sections, comments, etc., in-app image editing, video embedding and last but not least, the ability to Report on-site using your mobile device WITHOUT using data, you just upload to the cloud using Wifi or data whenever you're finished.

I can't express enough how impressed I am with the boys over at Spectora, their customer service and response to our requests for new features and customisation happens lightning fast and their commitment to producing a game-changing software in less than 12 months has allowed them to enter a market dominated by VERY outdated programs and literally knock all the other BIG players out of the game.

Spectora is THE next generation of Home Inspection Reporting software!

Overall: This software has allowed me to significantly increase my volume of inspections, while at the same time the quality of my Reports hasn't suffered at all, in fact in some ways they have improved compared to my custom reports that I have been using for the past 6 years.

My clients and Realtors alike are all enjoying the new Reports and have nothing but great things to say about how they are VERY easy to read, yet they have an abundance of valuable information which has helped them make smart decisions when looking to purchase the property they had us inspect.

Spectora is hands down the best home inspection software I have ever used in this field.

Overall: Ease of use when it comes to doing and inspections and getting my report emailed off to multiple people with one click.

Pros: Ok I'm going to break it down

Customer support: the key to any business is having support /communication from your software companies. I get excellent response from spectora, with dedicated people who make great efforts of going above and beyond their means to make sure my success.

Product: SPECTORA SAVED MY BUSINESS. As home inspector we have a lot of things we note. Responsiveness is most important along with easy navigation in the software is so important to us. I've tried multiple softwares and spectora is elite of them all.

Overall: if you are a home inspector and looking for a quick, uniformed, professionally, responsive inspection report. Look no further. Spectora is light years ahead of all those other inspection reports and blows HG, Inspector1, axium, etc... out of the water.

Overall: My clients are happy with the uniformed reports and love the simplicity of it and also allows me too CC the real estate agent as well it's the perfect software for a home inspector I really cannot begin to tell you how this software saved my company in so many ways it's unbelievable what spectora has done for my business

Pros: I have used software from three competing companies, two of them being the most "common" in the industry, and in my opinion nothing comes close to putting out a cleaner, easier to read report. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my "finished product" (being the report), and Spectora has allowed me to up my game and provide a little "Wow" factor. Realtors look over hundreds of reports, setting yourself apart with a clean, easy to read, and technologically advanced report...will grow your business, if you're taking care of other facets of your business.

On top of that you have the Developers; customer support, who are there for you immediately if you need any assistance or have suggestions. You can tell they are passionate about what they do, so the future of this software is only going to get better with more feature.

As of now, the software is meeting all of my needs and saving me time on report writing. All of the needed features are here; default pics, locations, etc.

Cons: Nothing substantial that I have found so far. Overall speed in the app and software could be improved, but it is not bad by no means.

Overall: Decreased report writing time, better looking report presentation!

Cons: Right now it is a bit basic if you are looking to expand beyond just home inspections for real estate transactions, but they working on it.

Hands down the best "bang for your buck" software out there.

Cons: There's really not anything we don't like about it. There's always a learning curve that can be uncomfortable, but the software is customizable and Spectora has been fantastic about listening to and implementing feedback quickly so no complaints!

Overall: A great product that our client's love - and so do we.

Pros: The report is everything. Only 25-40 pages of relevant information that is easy for the customer to read. The app works seamlessly so that you aren't slowed down during an inspection, and you can even tailor your own inspection templates. Add the company marketing, customer / realtor and financial tracking features, and Spectora can't be matched by any other software on the market.

Cons: We have had very few problems using Spectora. On one occasion, template items kept duplicating themselves when I tried editing a report from my tablet in the field. However, this is easily corrected by only using the app when using a tablet or phone.

Pros: The software is easy to use and the reports look great. All of the information is easy to find when you need it, and it conveys the information to the client in a format that they are more familiar with. People would rather read a web based report than print out a hard copy. Spectora allows you to link to DIY pages or other info, and simply takes the home inspection report to the digital age.
Customer reps are fantastic at what they do. Their responsiveness, attention to detail and commitment to their product, instill confidence that they can take this to the top of the market, and will succeed at this rate.

Cons: Occasional bugs early on, but customer reps are very responsive and address most bugs immediately.

Overall: Great feedback from realtors and clients. Very easy to read and navigate. I also love the management side of the software, scheduling inspections, sending out emails and agreements.

Amazing software! It has actually been one of the biggest reasons for my success.

They are extremely responsive to the needs of their users and implement suggestions at an incredible rate. They have, and continue to expand the most comprehensive and modern inspection software out there. My advise to the old players in this market is WATCH OUT ;)

Cons: Literally nothing, the speed that they innovate and adapt to the needs of their users makes any con I place here obsolete.

Overall: A competitive edge in my market.

Pros: The first thing we've noticed since switching to Spectora from another leading home inspection software is the customer service. Our rep has blown us away with his willingness to go above and beyond - even with items for our business unrelated to the software itself! He's super responsive, communicates well and is pleasant to work with. We are just starting to really dive into the software but we like the modern look of the interface and reports. The software is user friendly and is compatible with the latest technology.

Pros: The thing that I like the most about this software is the final product that my clients get to see. It's well laid out graphically and clients can easily navigate to see all of the information.
They also have the option to simply print it out if they want something to hold in their hands.

I was banging my head against the wall trying to figure out some of the other antiquated software that's currently available. I would get so frustrated over simple little tasks, that in this day and age, should not be an issue. Spectora is like a breath of fresh air and they are always available to help you out.

Cons: Like with anything else it just takes a little time to get it sorted out and set up to how you like it. I feel like the more experience I get with it the smoother it works.

Overall: Great automation, sends out reminder emails so I can spend more time away from my computer.

Overall: As a home inspector, I have been in search of a clean, comprehensive, and user friendly home inspection software.

Upon finding Spectora, I was relieved and excited to have found my new platform for home inspection reports. The user interface is easy to navigate, and produces a clean and quality report for the client. Spectora has options for automating payment, scheduling, pre-inspection agreements, and follow up emails to all parties involved in the transaction. Spectora instantly improved my business and has allowed me to spend more time growing my business and less time dealing with scheduling, reports and follow up. I would highly recommend Spectora for any home inspector.

Pros: The integration of scheduling, payment options, customer retention automation and customer service.

Cons: I wish it was FREE lol. However, the value I receive in exchange for the monthly payment I think I can handle it.

Overall: Often times we get into business not knowing everything there is to know. This is called discovery. But when discovery turns into full blown "Had I known about this I would have..." it takes away from your ability to make money. What I like about Spectora is that it addresses so many of the "had I known's" it has allowed me to seamlessly integrate payment options for my customers, track my marketing efforts, track my profits, track my appointments and even take a look back at my progress which helps me with benchmarking what's working and what needs to be surgically removed from my daily operations. The customer service and tech support is amazing and the team at Spectora has really made me feel like my business is "Valued". The operations side of navigating the platform is pretty awesome too- and when my customers get there reports they usually say they're impressed. Agents are sending me more business and when we do hit a snag it's addressed in a timely fashion and smoothed out. Spectora has made my business into a superstar and I'm crushing the competition. It's the edge I needed.

Recommendations to other buyers: The initial templates are basic. Learning to customize templates for inspections or creating new ones from scratch is very simple. This is a great platform if you're interested in growing your business.
