Report writing time reduced by 50% and £1000s saved in typist fees. GoReport delivers effortless efficiency for Harding Surveyors, Fulham.
Harding Chartered Surveyors is an independent practice in Fulham, specialising in residential reports and valuations. James Brook, MRICS Chartered Surveyor, told us how adopting the GoReport surveying and data capture solution delivered immediate time and cost savings.
“1. When we compiled reports the traditional way, using a camera, notebook and Dictaphone, 50% of the time was spent allocating photos to the relevant text, resizing and reformatting them. GoReport now does that all for us.
2.Rather than having to type each report from scratch, we have created a template with standard phrases. Including them is as easy as ticking a menu box. There’s also a handy speech recognition function that automatically turns dictated notes into text. This means that there’s no need to employ typists to write up our reports – a saving in time of up to 48 hours and a cost reduction of many thousands of pounds.
3.The standardised text means there’s less room for error or not meeting RICS compliance standards. It also maintains a level of consistency across all our work, as does the fact that each report is auto-designed into our own branded style, with everything in the right place. This saves a huge amount of time back in the office because with just a couple of clicks each report is client-ready.
4.It’s also worth mentioning that because GoReport is set up to capture all the necessary data for each project there’s no chance of forgetting a crucial piece of information. It prompts you each step of the way. So, no last-minute dashes back to the site to pick up a measurement or missing picture.”
