Been using Whisper for a few years. Nothing not to like about it. Powerfully flexible. Since I include about 100 photos per report, I might experiment with HIP this winter, as Dom's method of importing pics into the specific report sections may save me time. I have this feeling, though, HIP might lack some features, Whisper has.

I like the Whisper guy, met him a few times. Is his stuff integrated with us?

No, not since the last time I downloaded a new release; (which they do frequently.) Larry White, indeed is a great guy! ISN, yes; ISG, no. The thing is, Larry and Eric have developed this great software over the years, Part-Time; as they both have full-time jobs as programmers; one reason you don't always see them at the shows as often. Larry provides his support via emails, and personal webinars evenings and weekends; and holds training classes about every quarter around Texas. Anyway, ISG stuff is on Eric's to-do list, with a lot of other items, and sometimes it takes a while.

Homegauge for us. Taking full advantage of the video and the html in the format.

If it's on his list I won't punish him too badly.

I like using the HTML format, as well, but to use ISN you have to put it in a PDF. Any solutions for this yet?

How many (Inspectors) use Report Host and what is your opinion of it, if so? What have you heard? I get a few calls and requests weekly asking when/if we're going to be integrated with them or not. Home Gauge as well.

I've heard several times that HomeGauge will be integrating, but it has been a while. I'm not sure on ReportHost. I know there's been a slew of inspectors asking them for integration.

I think Report Host has a nice report and is easy to use. For whatever reason it seems like most inspectors, myself included, used it briefly before transitioning to HG, HIP, or 3D.

Larry's having an "advanced users" class in Houston this weekend. I'll tell him we've been talking about him.

David switched away from Homegauge in hopes to find an inspection reporting software that he could finish onsite. He tried one that would supposedly let him do this and it added time to his process to the point he would get two days behind. Stuck with it 6 months, just switched back to Homegauge. Still looking for solutions.

Well the owner of #D saw my first comment and was not too happy. He is a great guy and I owe him very much. I was actually kinda having a bad 3D day when I made that post. I am sorry and I will be addressing my concerns directly with the owner.

I have used them all and 3D is superior to me.

3D is awesome! I don't see why Carl would be unhappy- whenever someone is talking about you it's a good thing!

Had Advanced Whisper class today. So powerful. Amazed at the possibilities.

Trying to look into a new software as well. What I would really appreciate is if each one would give me at least 2 things about their reporting software that makes it stand out.
