    Default Convert paper reports to digital copies

    I was wondering if anybody has some suggestions for taking paper documents and making editable digital copies. For example we do septic inspections for real estate transactions. Instead of hand writing them, I would like to get an electronic document on my iPad that I could edit in the field. Save me time doing the report later. I think this would be professional. Any thoughts would be great

    PM your email and I'll send you what I use for sewer inspections. It is a paper copy but it gets filled in fast. I fill it out, give it to the customer and take a picture of it for my own records.

    Would this work for you? http://www.wacom.com/en/products/pen-tablets/bamboo

    We are using Smart Service. We just got it so I'm not up on all of the details. Evidently they have a mobile application that will allow you to upload your documents and fill them out on the job. They automatically go back to your database in the office. The whole thing integrates with Quickbooks as well. We don't have the mobile version yet but will in the near future. I can tell you more then. What I do like about Smart Service is you can load all the different information to each customers file. Quite often I'll take pictures of the job site or I'll have filled out a report detailing the system that I can attach to the job. Those things stay there so I can access them again later. Supposedly I will be able to get them in the field with the mobile app.

    I'm gonna look into smart service. We fill out reports for almost every job we do, or create some kinda as built . Being able to do the paperwork in the field hopefully will save time and headache later
