July 2021 Product Update

August 13, 2021 | 

Thank you for catching up with us and our July Product Update, brought to you by our Head of Product, Mike Rogers.

We have some exciting updates this month as there are a lot of new features dropping across our suite.

Let’s jump straight in. Today we’ll be covering:

  • Continued companion updates, next round of planned enhancements
  • Web Writer Mobile beta testing
  • Texas templates
  • Launch of new advisory council and how you can nominate someone

Companion App Beta

The updated companion camera is now live in the latest version on Android. We got some great feedback from Beta users regarding the addition of a zoom and a torch. We added those features and are now looking for the next round of improvement ideas.

It’s not all Android related. For iPhone users out there we’re working on various improvements to the iOS version and will be working on bringing the “Find next unanswered” feature back as soon as we can.

If you want to be a part of the next round of testing we still have some open spots. Just reach out to productfeedback@homeguage.com and we’ll get you signed up.

Texas Templates

As discussed last month, we’ve been working hard with the folks at TREC to ensure that we support the very latest formats in Web Writer and our Desktop versions. For Web Writer, we’re taking a bit of a different approach. We really wanted to enable you to separate out the way an inspection is completed from the way a report is delivered.

Now you can complete a TX inspection in much the same way you would any other. The only difference is the print template you select when you publish it. You can publish the same inspection in multiple different formats in seconds.

Advisory Council

We’ve setup an Advisory Council made up of influential industry folks and valued customers. The mission of the council is to help guide HomeGauge as we support inspectors and the wider industry for the next 20 years. Invites are at the discretion of HomeGauge and based largely on nominations from within the industry. If you know someone you think would be ideal please pass their details along to productfeedback@homegauge.com.

That’s it for this month. Look out for a big announcement coming in August. We’re excited and we think you will be too.

As always, you can reach me at productfeedback@homegauge.com for any great ideas or feedback you might have.

‘Till then-
