If you’re like most retrofitter professionals, this scenario may seem familiar. You audit a facility with pencil and paper, taking notes of the existing fixtures in various rooms of the facility. You head back to the office and begin to transpose your handwritten audit notes to an Excel® spreadsheet, and this is where the problems begin.
In transferring the audit notes to Excel, you may have trouble reading some of the handwriting, or have lost details as to which room a fixture belongs to. Cell phone or camera images provide little help as they aren’t tied back to a specific line item in your audit. In addition, your inaccurate transcription can be further altered with errors in Excel formulas.
This process is error-prone, draining, and worst of all, it’s slow. And now, it’s also obsolete. It should come as no surprise that the digital age has caught up to the world of retrofit, with thousands of retrofitter professionals using SnapCount software. It was built to solve the frustrations previously listed, replacing your pencil and paper audits with tablet based assessments, and your Excel spreadsheet transcription with the push of a few buttons.
