HG Companion 5.2 Update Overview

New: HG Companion update out tomorrow!

It's time — the HG Companion update will be released tomorrow, August 1, 2017! This version is worth the wait, as we've added great new features to make your job easier. What's new? It's a pretty long list, including a new light/dark background option to make it easier on your eyes, revamped navigation, the ability to download appointments directly to your device, removal of the old Android menu (the HG Companion now only supports Android 4.4 or later), bug fixes for newer versions of Android, and more. We encourage you to take some time and watch the video to see what's new and how to use the latest features before tomorrow's release. Please note that this update is for the Android version only. If you would prefer not to get this update right away, you will need to turn off automatic app updates in the Google Play Store's settings on your device.

New: CRL™ Usage Insights

We have another goody for you this month — CRL™ Usage Insights.

You may have already received some email notifications when your customers have used HomeGauge's Create Request List™ feature, but now you can get some nice statistics too! Login to your HomeGauge.com Dashboard, click on Business Insights in the menu, then choose CRL™ Usage. You can click on the date field to pick a range and a CRL™ usage report will be generated for you. If you are the owner or manager of a multi-inspector company, you can break it down by inspector as well. We have also added a CRL™ link that will show up by your uploaded report document in your regular uploaded reports list when a CRL™ has been created for it.

CRL™ is the original, fastest, and easiest way to create a request list that agents can attach to their repair addendums. Don't accept any sub-par copycat alternatives — this is one of those occasions where the name brand version matters. CRL™ is patent pending and has even more great features in the works, so stay tuned.

Every company needs a website. Have the industry leader build yours!

HomeGauge builds more than just the leading software for home inspectors — we also build the best websites! Unlike other web design companies, we specialize in creating websites for inspectors like you. This means we know all the industry-specific language and what your clients are looking for when they visit your site. HomeGauge designs professional, custom websites for all home inspectors, whether you use our software or not. All sites are fully responsive and work beautifully across all devices — computers, smartphones, and tablets.

HomeGauge Software users can add special features to their site such as a customer report login, HG testimonials, and the HG Appointment Manager at no extra charge! Sending customers directly to your website to access their reports helps drive traffic and gives you an opportunity to market to agents.

Our sites include original content written just for you by our team of professional web content writers. Your content will be tailored to you and your company, and we write the content to not only be user-friendly for your viewers, but for search engines to easily index your website.
