Innovator in Fire, Life-Safety Compliance Reporting Technology Reaches Milestone With Four Million Inspections
Over 900 service members provided verifiable compliance reporting for more than 630,000 buildings since 2000
ATLANTA, December 11, 2017 (Newswire.com) - BuildingReports, the most trusted name in compliance reporting, announced its service members have now completed over four million inspection reports. This continues an accelerated trend in growth; the company reported reaching the one million mark after 12 years of operation. However, that figure grew to two million reports by late 2014, three million in mid-2016 and from three million to four million in fewer than 17 months.
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.
“We are extremely proud of our relationships with the network of inspection, testing and maintenance service providers that leverage our technology,” said Jason Kronz, BuildingReports’ president and chief technology officer. “When the entire industry is focused on the protection of people and property, trust is essential in providing a foundation for success. We are inspired to have earned this trust from our members, facility users and Authorities Having Jurisdiction.”
Historically, BuildingReports’ core business has been centered on inspection and code-based reporting for fire alarm and signaling, fire sprinkler, fire suppression and life-safety devices and systems. However, in recent years, the company has expanded to include security systems with SecurityScan, and more recently, the company widened its solution set to include HVAC maintenance and service documentation for HVAC systems with HVACScan.
The company also recently introduced a free public service, ComplianceCenter, for submitting electronic reports to Authorities Having Jurisdiction, which further expanded BuildingReports' portfolio of products and services. 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.
Building-safety compliance is critical to service companies, building owners and fire and safety officials, who are charged with safeguarding occupants. BuildingReports’ mobile and online inspection reporting tools enable inspectors to gather data on fire and life-safety devices quickly to ensure that these devices are working properly and meet code requirements, in addition to identifying the actions needed to meet compliance through easily verifiable inspection reports. With over 4,000,000 inspection reports to date, more than 10 billion square feet of floor space in over 630,000 buildings and over 280 million devices represented, BuildingReports has earned its reputation as the most trusted name in compliance reporting.
