Without home inspection software, inspector findings and observations have to be recorded manually on paper. This not only takes up a lot of time, but also makes inspection results, which are the basis for the issuance of permits, susceptible to damage or even loss. Additionally, using paper for home inspections requires large storage space and frequent file organization.
