Property restoration is chaotic enough. Never mind the hassle of using multiple platforms to keep track of progress.
That’s why RocketPlan is launching a time tracking and accounting integration system – so contractors and insurers can ‘restore’ confidence in their own restoration and claims process.
“Our entire property restoration management philosophy is that data capture should all be on one platform,” explains Joe Tolzmann, CEO of RocketPlan. “Now it includes time tracking for hours on the job, rental equipment usage, drying logs and more – and it’ll integrate into existing accounting software to provide a seamless workflow.”
“This means insurance claims are submitted quickly, accurately, and paid out on time – speeding up the restoration process so projects move forward, and people can get back into their homes faster,” he adds.
Tolzmann came up with the idea for RocketPlan after working in the field during restoration projects. He realized that teams were inefficiently using multiple platforms to capture data. That data had to make it back to the office, so companies could start reporting, estimating, and billing. Delayed data meant delayed payments.
“Teams are submitting work authorizations, IR scans, photos, damage assessments, time tracking, equipment logs – and they were doing this for multiple projects at a time,” explains Tolzmann. “Workers were using legacy platforms that either didn’t address all the needs of field teams, or it took weeks and months to train users – only for it to fail anyway.”
“We realized there had to be a better way to help field teams capture data on-the-go, have real-time access to documents, and be intuitive to use,” he adds.
Intuitive is key. It takes an average of just 14 minutes to get familiar with RocketPlan’s platform. Users see the immediate value of cutting out manual data upload.
“Anyone with a smartphone who can take a selfie can use the system,” says Tolzmann.
RocketPlan’s platform includes RocketDry for moisture logging and equipment tracking, as well as RocketScan to directly capture and upload photos. The company is the preferred partner of FLIR ONE Pro, an infrared device with direct integration into RocketPlan for efficient scanning, inspections and automated reporting, helping find invisible problems faster.
