3D Case Studies

Rick Bunzel, a professional inspector and certified firefighter with an IT computer background, expounds on the features he uses in the 3D Inspection System software. He relates how he lightened his toolbag by switching hardware equipment, how he created a new form to inspect a large apartment complex in less than an hour, and how he uses premier Office Management features to keep tabs on his business trends. Rick has owned inspection companies in two states and is also an accomplished speaker and published article author.

Ed McDaniel is a licensed Tennessee inspector with several professional memberships and over 20 years of experience, as well as a certified Mold Inspector. Ed compliments 3D Inspection System on the presentation quality it provides, and how that contributes to the success of his inspection business.

Jeff Herboldshimer desperately needed to regain time for his personal life and his search for the solution ultimately impacted his entire career. He describes how he now collects data and takes photos with his PDA so he can complete inspection reports on site. Jeff also enjoys offering personalized software training to new users/inspectors, and tells he how he was the only one to finish a report demonstration at a recent chapter meeting- and in half the time allotted!

Donald Johnston was disappointed with the confusing and look-alike report styles most inspectors were providing and wanted to stand out from the competition. He used his report to market himself to the local real estate offices and performs quite a few inspections for sellers, as well as for buyers- and tracks closing rates for both. Now that other inspectors are following his lead, he keeps raising the bar to stay ahead and has also diversified into other kinds of inspections.

Certified CREIA inspector and Volunteer Firefighter Rick Hartmann reveals that he used the free functional 3D Inspection System evaluation program to migrate his custom forms from another system before purchasing the 3D software. Rick created custom forms for different style homes to save time, and estimates he has saved an additional 15% in total inspection and reporting time by collecting data on site.
