Since much of the economy has ground to a halt thanks to the C-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever that fire safety contractors understand how BirdDog Inspection Software helps in recessions.
Although much inspection work is currently at a standstill because so many buildings are closed, there are signs that the lockdowns will be loosened, allowing fire safety contractors to get back to work.
Fire safety contractors that have been shut down with no income will be looking for ways to ramp up revenue to get back on their feet as quickly as possible. The BirdDog Mobile Inspection & Data Collection System and its powerful Deficiency Management software module can help that rebuilding process.
BirdDog’s Deficiency Management Module Is A Powerful Tool To Help Contractors Ramp Up After the Shutdowns
BirdDog’s deficiency management module brings the best of both worlds. Why? Automated deficiency management enhances safety while providing an important revenue source for cash-strapped contractors who had to temporarily cease operations & now need to hit the ground running as the lockdowns are cancelled.
How Does Inspection Software Help in Recessions for Fire Safety Contractors?
Inspection software with automated deficiency management software is a fire safety contractor’s and a property owner’s best friend – for different reasons.
For contractors, automated deficiency management helps build the bridge between identification and actual follow-up on deficiencies found in inspections. As those deficiencies are identified and tracked with better oversight than a manual system, fire safety contractors can build more accurate estimates and schedule more repair work. Not only does this increase safety; it also helps fire safety contractors generate more repair services revenue.
What’s more, the BirdDog Mobile Inspection System’s Deficiency Management module also has key elements built into the module that allow field inspectors to assess what will be needed to complete the repairs – and lists those for the office staff to include in the estimate. BirdDog’s Deficiency Management allows field techs to include information on how many people will be needed to complete the repair, special tools that might be needed, access issues such as a tall ladder that must be brought to reach the site of the needed repair…and more.
When field techs can provide detailed information about the logistics of the repair job, it saves time for the office staff, results in more accurate estimates, and results in more efficient and streamlined repair of deficiencies found during inspections.
How Does Inspection Software Help in Recessions for Property Owners?
Property owners & facility management departments appreciate powerful Deficiency Management software because it brings a host of benefits unique to their needs. Many studies have shown that manual tracking of deficiency management often results in deficiencies not being corrected at all, or significant delays in resolving deficiencies found in inspections.
When deficiencies are not resolved, the problems can fester and result in more expensive repairs down the road.
If deficiencies are not resolved and fire or water damage occurs because a deficiency was not resolved, this scenario can hinder getting insurance claims covered.
If someone is hurt on a property because a deficiency wasn’t rectified, property owners can face expensive litigation, increased insurance premiums, and other costs associated with neglect or non-compliance with codes.
NOW Is The Time To Take Advantage of the Power of BirdDog Deficiency Management Capabilities
Companies throughout the United States and the world are reeling from the effects of lost income from lockdowns and shelter-in-place orders. As communities are opened up again, and as buildings become occupied with workers again, the need for inspections and code compliance will return.
Fire safety contractors facing lost income can start to catch up on lost revenue by automating and streamlining the process of deficiency management, and increasing their services business.
Building owners & facility management departments can streamline the process of resolving deficiencies, and reduce repair costs through that streamlined process as well.
