Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) October 03, 2011
improveit! 360, the nation’s leading business management application for the home improvement industry, announced its partnership with Kachina Lead Paint Solutions. This alliance was formed to make it easier for remodelers and replacement contractors to comply with RRP regulations, receive expert help and maintain the use of the most updated RRP forms.
Kachina Lead Paint Solutions, nationally accredited by the EPA to provide resources and training in lead-safe practices in all 50 states, sought a partner to help home improvement companies gain access to guidance, as well as the latest forms needed to be RRP compliant. With extremely busy schedules, it is easy for remodelers to miss regulations that affect the industry, and the steps needed to follow those laws. “We were looking for an effective way to extend our reach into more home improvement companies to help them keep up with regulations, make it easy for them to get the forms they need to be compliant, and maintain these important documents in one place. Our answer was improveit! 360,” said Paul Toub, Vice President of Marketing for Kachina Lead Paint Solutions.
improveit! 360 streamlines RRP compliance, making it easier and less costly for home remodelers to adhere to legal requirements, track key dates and actions, assign tasks to certified renovators, and access and store mandatory lead paint compliance paperwork. Compliance requirements are triggered based on the age of the home easily found using the integrated Zillow application. improveit! 360 tracks important compliance details, such which staff members are certified renovators, when RRP documents are received and more.
By using the integrated Kachina RRP forms in improveit! 360, remodelers can be confident that their RRP compliance documents are current, organized and readily accessible from the customer record, helping them to be audit-ready with more time to focus on their running and building their businesses. Customers can opt to use the premier support service, which gives them access to Kachina compliance experts to answer their questions, and the opportunity to get additional items related to compliance laws, such as their Renovate Right pamphlets, at discounted rates.
“Our business management application already lowers the cost and time required to manage remodelers’ businesses and RRP compliance,” says improveit! 360 COO Jason Barr. “Integrating Kachina’s forms and guidance takes compliance enforcement and tracking to a new level, not to mention helps to prevent costly fines, lawsuits, and headaches. As two companies that were started by remodelers for remodelers, Kachina and improveit! 360 are looking out for the best interest of all those in the home improvement industry.”
