Asset Appraisal Services: Using Technology to Improve Your Customer ExperienceAt Asset Appraisal Services, technology is the name of the game. We're great at making appraising look easy and we believe a large amount of it is our ability to increase our productivity with the newest tools. We use the best and newest technology at our disposal to bring you high quality, accurate appraisals.
If you asked enough appraisers, most would agree that appraising is more complicated than it used to be. Cutting corners on analysis isn't an option for an ethical appraiser. So, the logical place to save time is in our daily workflow. Our continuous efforts to be the best have convinced us that using the very latest in new technology allows us to bring you more accurate reports, quicker turnaround times and of course, the very best in customer service.
Years ago, most of our orders came in via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we arrived at the office. Often, in this scenario, it might of taken quite a while to hear back to see if the order could be taken. These days, when orders are entered on this website, we get an e-mail on our phones. We often log into this site from the field and send back an e-mail confirmation – including the time and date for the inspection if we've been able to talk to the occupant.
Let Asset Appraisal Services show you how we innovate ordering appraisals
Asset Appraisal Services understands that real estate is all about timeliness. We don't make you wait around for replies because we understand the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website definitely reduces cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.
Asset Appraisal Services believes in working smarterThe appraisal process is nothing if not a detail-oriented procedure. We spend a lot of our time obtaining the facts on the subject property and the local market data and trends. Asset Appraisal Services takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
Instead of using paper forms and pencils and then re-keying all the information back at the office, don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using an app created for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on the spot. Rather than using that clumsy outdated tape measure, more and more appraisers are utilizing laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.
We combine all of these different technologies to ensure that the final report is comprehensive and without error. This works to both our advantages by necessitating less time for call-backs and revisions. A real money saver for busy appraisal clients.
Here at Asset Appraisal Services we want you to know you have more options to receive your report.The majority of our appraisals are delivered through e-mail as PDF documents. Most of our clients prefer e-mail because we're all accustomed to getting attachments like PDFs in our mail. It's much more efficient than the old days when everything was on paper. But, we've even been able to innovate report delivery with this website.
Ever lost a file that was sent to you? Or have you ever had problems sending or receiving an e-mail because it was too big? We've come up with a solution for those problems, too. When we deliver an appraisal through this website, the client is e-mailed a download link to retrieve the PDF. By bypassing email completely we can get around any problems caused by file size. And the best thing is that the file will be hosted on this site for 90 days. So if you lose the file, you can log back in here and retrieve it again - saving you time, since we won't even need to run back to the computer.
Asset Appraisal Services makes things easier by using Digital WorkfilesIt would be great if appraisers could complete a report, give it to the client and never be concerned with revisiting that document again. However, appraisals are used to show the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers need to keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
Here again, Asset Appraisal Services leverages our investment in technology to improve service. By storing every aspect of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we're able to retrieve that document at any time and recall just what that report was about.
We just wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we use our technology daily. Using the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows the appraiser to collect the appraisal data to finish the report faster and more accurately than previously possible.
