Fire & Life Safety Industry Milestone – Building Reports

BuildingReports and its service member network achieve significant accomplishment with online inspection reporting and technology

ATLANTA – October 2, 2014 – BuildingReports, the most trusted name in compliance reporting, announces the upload of its two millionth fire and life safety inspection report. Chicago-based SMG Security is the inspection company to officially upload the milestone-making report. With the largest network of qualified inspection service companies, BuildingReports has quickly become a leader in the compliance reporting industry.

“We pride ourselves on providing reliable, cost-effective services and BuildingReports helps us do that in a way our competitors can’t,” said Corey Gallois, operations manager at SMG. “Since we started using it in 2012, the detailed device-level reports and anytime-anywhere access has been very popular with new and existing customers. BuildingReports also allows us to track inspection performance data such as inspection times and device recalls as well as improve our customer service, manage our teams more effectively and generate additional revenue.”

While the number of inspection reports completed is impressive, BuildingReports also prides itself on implementing its online inspection and reporting solution at over 330,000 facilities globally and includes more than 120 million devices inspected.

“At the end of the day, it all comes down to our network of over 600 service companies,” said Jason Kronz, president and CTO for BuildingReports. “From day one we have been extremely selective about which companies comprise our channel. Our success and reputation are directly tied to having great partners like SMG who live by the notion that fire and life safety is too important to cut corners.”

BuildingReports CEO, Brett Brewster, added, “Having been involved in the fire and life safety industry for decades, I saw the role technology could play in an industry that’s had a tendency to lag behind others in adoption. Before BuildingReports, it was not uncommon for a facility manager’s office to have volumes of handwritten, spreadsheet-style reports that were often illegible and cumbersome to use. We knew there had to be a better way, and based on our success it appears the market agrees.”

Inspectors use mobile devices equipped with BuildingReports’ online inspection and reporting technology to scan and log device inspection results of fire and life safety devices throughout commercial facilities. Upon completion of an inspection, a building’s report is immediately available online with a comprehensive record of which devices passed or failed, why devices failed, (including the associated codes and standards) and what action is required to be in compliance.
