This is part 1 of a 2-part series to help consolidate important information for Service Members for easy reference. The information contained here is accurate as of April 10, 2020.

Upon logging into the portal users will notice a change to the list view on the Get Reports page. The Inspection Status column now features a drop down option that allows users to choose the inspections status without having to expand the report detail row by clicking the + symbol to the far left of the row. The option no longer resides within the detail section for the row, and users can save extra steps when updating the inspeciton status.
We are pleased to announce the availability of new feature for AHJ, BuildingReports Service Member users, and Complimentary ComplianceCenter users of the ComplianceCenter report submittal system. Depending on your user type, you will see different options when clicking the new Help button while logged into the portal.
BuildingReports Partners with ComplianceBinders.com for Healthcare Compliance Reporting Management Binders
UPDATE JANUARY 2019: This partnership has been discontinued due to low demand for BuildingReports-branded versions, but members still interested in acquiring Compliance Binders can still order them direct from L&R.
Managing and organizing the massive amount of paper reporting required by CMS accredited agencies can be a massive headache for healthcare facility professionals. L&R’s Optix Compliance Binders™ provide a turn-key system for rapid deployment of consistent, ready-to-use compliance document organization across healthcare facilities. BuildingReports is pleased to announce that we've partnered with L&R to provide BuildingReports branded versions for DNV GL, Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) and The Joint Commission (TJC).
Do you use different BuildingReports Members for your various fire and life safety system inspections and reporting? Or, do you manage numerous building(s) serviced by different providers? If so, there is now a way to consolidate all of your reports under any account login.

BuildingReports is pleased to introduce an addition to the Administrator, Manager, Manager/Inspector, Inspector and Custom User role types: Account Manager. The addition of this new feature is in response to requests from our valued Service Members, and is another example of why your feedback is so valuable.
The Account Manager role is a new user designation internal to BuildingReports Service Company members, and provides a third option to improve usability for organizations that provide account management services to large multi-facility customers within a given jurisdiction or region.
"A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large." - Henry Ford
Selling a product is a far different prospect than selling a service. Generally, buyers will know the fundamentals of what your product is, how it works and maybe even why they need it.
Services on the other hand can be a far more nebulous value proposition to try and define for a prospective customer. You can't hold it in your hand, and understanding how to differentiate the value of one service over another can ultimately come down to preconceptions and hinge upon 3rd party references.
To win in today's competitive marketplace, service companies must begin to think differently about how they go to market, position their service offering and solve for their customers' challenges.
Did you know BuildingReports provides for the ability to include monitoring information on web-based inspection reports?
According to the changes in the 2010 updates, NFPA 72 now explicitly approves the use of alternative digital voice technologies, like Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), and communication service providers, like cable companies, for fire monitoring purposes. All providers, including legacy analog phone companies, must meet the same monitoring performance requirements. BuildingReports has included the more detailed information in it's online reporting solution to satisfy these stricter requirements since the announcement went into effect.
