Appraisal Network: Using Technology to Improve Your Customer Experience
At Appraisal Network, technology is the name of the game. We always research the latest in high-tech tools. From smart phones, to laptops, GPS, you name it. Call us geeks. Call us nerds. Call us what you will, but by all means, call us at 5622601356 for appraisal orders in Orange County! Why? We're glad you asked.
While appraisal fees haven't necessarily gone up over the years, the demands placed on individual appraisers have. We offer the highest quality appraisals, and cutting corners has never been an option for us. So, we've simply optimized our routine processes to do more in less time. The appraisers that have continually adapted to new technology have been the ones able to consistently satisfy their customers with more accurate reports, better customer service and faster turnaround times.
Years ago, a great deal of orders arrived via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we arrived at the office. It might be hours before a client even knew if we could do the order. 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.
Just look at how Appraisal Network makes ordering easier
When you order from Appraisal Network you can expect us to be concerned about your deadlines. We aim to reduce waiting between communications since the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website has proven to reduce cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.
Appraisal Network is a pioneer in efficient data gathering
Gathering the data for an appraisal is a demanding process. We spend a lot of our time gathering the facts on the subject property and the local market data and trends. Appraisal Network takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
We've learned that taking notes regularly, using pencil and paper, generally takes longer since we we have to enter everything back in at the office. Don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using an application developed for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on site. And instead of using an old 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. Our goal is to save you time and money.
Here at Appraisal Network we make sure you have ample options to receive your report.
The majority of our appraisals are delivered through e-mail as PDF documents. Generally our clients are most familiar with receiving PDFs attached to their e-mail. It's much more efficient than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to improve on e-mail with report delivery with this website.
Everyone knows how frustrating it is to lose a file. Or have you ever had an attachment blocked because it was too big? We have the technology to overcome those problems, too. Whenever we send an appraisal, 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.
Appraisal Network enhances its appraisal records by using Digital Workfiles
It would be much easier if appraisers could complete a report, give it to the client and never be concerned with seeing that document again. However, appraisals are employed to show the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers must keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
Here again, Appraisal Network uses all the technology at our disposal technology to improve service. We store every part of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we skip the paper file folders and only need our computer to recall precisely what that assignment was about.
These are just a few examples of how we use technology daily. Utilizing the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows the appraiser to save time without cutting corners and deliver a better product to you, our client.
