1. Organizing and Decluttering Appraisals

ANOW software organizes files, declutters your workspace, and stores files digitally until you need them. Retrieve comparables, photographs, client information, and anything else you need with a touch of a button. Every file is cloud-based and immediately accessible. 

2. Free up Time for Appraisers

In “Mobile Appraising and Workfiles,” Dustin Harris The Appraisal Coach describes how technology saves time. “Mobile is a far more efficient, smarter way to create your work files,” he explains. Harris credits appraisal software efficiency with saving 25 minutes per appraisal. He uses his found time to earn more money. 

3. Work Smarter With ANOW Cloud Access

4. Improve your appraisal business and be More Client Friendly 

When clients call they want answers. If you’re out in the field and the information they need is in a file on your desk, you may be hooped. ANOW’s cloud-based system lets you access client information anytime, anywhere you have an internet connection. Clients like it when you call you back with the information they need within a few minutes.

5. Meeting Your Appraisal Deadlines

If you rely on a manual planner or post-it notes to remind you of upcoming deadlines, you already know there must be a better way. The calendar/due date feature is a major benefit for ANOW user, Jason Snider. It gives him “…confidence that files aren’t falling through the cracks and getting submitted on time.

6. Implementing a Disaster Recovery Plan

Cloud storage can be an important element of your business disaster recovery plan. If a fire destroys your office or a mishap ruins your computer hard drive, your files are still available. Additionally, they are only accessible to authorized users. Recovery Implementation plans include:

  • •Critical files safely stored off premises and online.
