Knights Software Announces New Texas Version REI 7-3 of InspectMate
Hudson, WI – September 4, 2013 – Knights Software Solutions, Inc. announces today the next version of its market-leading home inspection software in the Texas market. The upgraded software makes it compliant with the Texas Real Estate Commission's revised standards of practice for inspectors, as well as the new required inspection report form (REI 7-3) for 1- to 4-family residential properties. The software will also continue to use the current 7-2 form until midnight before Jan. 1, 2014 where it will automatically switch over to the new form which makes it possible to upgrade at anytime and not have to worry about on Dec. 31st needing to switch software to comply to the new 7-3 form. Another example of how Knights Software makes it easy for our clients.
"This revision of our home inspection software keeps it compliant with the newly adopted REI 7-3 inspection form which is required to be used by Jan. 1 of 2014. Our software has been very popular in Texas because of the different approach we take to the home inspection process then other software. Our software lets the home inspector collect the data on a handheld device as they are doing the inspection. The software also lets them do the inspection their way by letting them create the order they want to collect the data in and then mapping this data to it's appropriate areas on the required TREC inspection report which frees up the inspector from having to jump to different areas of the software while they are doing the inspection. The process order may be set up room-by-room so that ALL the data is collected easily in each room during the home inspection and completely avoids having to rekey the data later back at their office or in the kitchen on a laptop." says President Jeffrey R. Knight.
"Our data collection software solution has been in the home inspection software market for over 15 years and was the first home inspection software to run on a handheld device. We specialize in writing data collection/inspection software and have the best interface and feature-base in the market"

Sample quotes from some of our over 1,500 happy clients:
"Since the introduction of the InspectMate System, I have used it on every inspection I have conducted. It has been wonderful. NO COMPLAINTS. IT HAS SAVED ME VALUABLE TIME TO DO OTHER THINGS." - Charles G., Jacksonville, FL
"I just love my InspectMate System. If this thing gets any better I don't know what I'm gonna do. - Mike G., Morton Grove, IL
"I just finished inspecting a 22,000+ square foot home. The main report was 67 pages. I could never have completed this job with any of the other systems we have had in the past. Anyone who is contemplating using a computer for inspections should consider the InspectMate System. My agents have been very impressed with the new report.” - Dale M., Springfield, MO
“I’ve done over 8,000 Home Inspections since 1995 and have used other reporting software. I feel that Knight’s Software Solutions has the best product for the Home Inspector. My inspectors balked at changing from paper to hand held PDA for only about 1 week before they said they would never go back. There is a short learning curve; the “Library Editor” can be easily modified to feel like the report you have been using for years. We print the final Report and Summary on site and save a copy (word.rtf file) on our computer in case we need to e-mail it in the future. We no longer have filing cabinets full of a 3 year back log of reports. Realtor’s are grateful not having to fax an illegible copy to the listing agent. If I want to modify the report, I can do it at night and have it ready to use the next day. Unquestionably the best!" - Donn Anderson, Anderson Inspection Service, Inc. Milwaukee, WI (Education Chair for WAHI since 1996)
"Now I don't have to spend until midnight every night typing reports." - C.F. Weedsport, NY
