    In order to improve or optimize software, you need good support and outsourcing. Many people don't know how to find a company or finding one overseas don't know how to transport it and how to work with it. But that's not a problem, I found information about nearshore software development services and now I know that this problem can be easily solved by them. I've already been to them and they helped me with the settings I needed. So I personally am completely satisfied. Good luck!

    Similar to your post, I don't want my observations to be considered a sales pitch. I work as a fire investigator on both the public and private side. For years our agency has been working to generate an O&C report template so that all investigators reports are at minimum consistent. On the private side, they had us using a Microsoft document using micros. Neither of these solutions really worked well and neither can be used on a vehicle fire.

    Then our companies' supervisor had us try generating reports using software from 921docs.com. Not to be too glowing, but on cases where subrogation is likely, using their software it now takes me under 2 hours to generate a report (30-35 pages) that's court ready. Shortly after showing the reports to our chief, he had all of our investigators transition to using their software. You mentioned "customizations", I can tell you that they customized the software we use on both the public and private side to meet our report requirements.

    You might talk to the private/ insurance people, they seem to have some developed already.

    Most people I know just use a narrative form report. To me there is just so much information to put in a report that a software program may not be the way to go.

    Plus you would need to read NFPA 921 and some how incorporate a lot of that into the software.

    Another place to ask the question is here :::;

    Thank you for the information. I know there is a lot that goes into a report; however, I do believe we can create that in the application. The biggest benefit I see is accessibility. If you're out and about and get a call from an insurance agent or attorney that needs the case file quickly, you would be able to bring up the application on your mobile phone or table and send it to them before you hang up the phone.

    I'll look into NFPA 921.

    Thank you again,

    started a topic Fire Investigation Software

    Fire Investigation Software

    First, this is not a sales post. This is simply a post to gain information. My company is looking to develop a fire investigation software. From our research, there are only a couple of software companies providing similar applications and they don't have mobile access and don't seem to allow for customizations. We really want to create a software that puts the control in your hands, so that you can continue providing the same type reports you are today, only in one application to help you track your investigations and keep everything moving forward. I just have a few questions for you:
    1. Do you currently use a software application designed for fire investigations?
      1. If so, can you tell me what application?
    2. If you do use an application, what would you change about it? If you don?t use an application, what would you like to see in an application if you were developing one to suit your needs?
    3. What would you consider to be a fair price for a software application if you were paying a monthly subscription per user?
    Thank you so much for your time. While I only had a few questions, please feel free to provide any additional feedback you would like to share.

    Thank you again,
    Jordon
