BuildingReports, a trusted name in compliance reporting, announced its service members have now reached the 5 million inspection report milestone. This reflects a growth rate of 150% since the company reached the 2 million inspection report mark in 2014. For perspective, BuildingReports reached the 1 million mark in 2012, 12 years since opening its doors. Over the next two years, that figure grew to 2 million reports, then 3 million by mid-2016, and 4 million by 2017.
Founded in 2000, BuildingReports provides mobile inspection applications and web-based compliance reporting to help independent service companies ensure that critical fire, life safety, and security systems are code-compliant and in working order. Using barcodes that are applied to applicable devices throughout commercial and industrial facilities, inspectors can now use mobile devices equipped with BuildingReports’ ScanSeries application to scan and log device inspection results.
“First and foremost, this industry milestone is as much testament to the dedication of our service members in their mission to ensure the safety of facilities and more importantly the people within them, as it is to our leadership team and employees,” said Jason Kronz, BuildingReports’ president and chief technology officer. “Earning the trust of our network of service members and the facility management and Authorities Having Jurisdiction they serve has been the cornerstone of our success. While we are celebrating this milestone, we renew our pledge to continue to be an innovator in the industry and to deliver pioneering new technology and solutions to drive the industry forward in the years to come.”
To that end, the company has expanded their portfolio of mobile applications and cloud-based reporting technology to include security systems with SecurityScan in recent years. Even more recently, the company expanded even further outside of fire and life safety to include HVAC maintenance and service documentation for HVAC systems with HVACScan.
This also comes on the heels of the launch of a complimentary public service, ComplianceCenter, for submitting electronic reports to Authorities Having Jurisdiction. ComplianceCenter offers an alternative to pay-per-use solutions that are available through other providers that often place the expense burden on service companies and facility management professionals. Because the software-as-a-service solution is built into BuildingReports’ existing platform, the company is able to offer the service free of charge to companies, facilities, and officials in a jurisdiction.
