Builders are looking for products that will help eliminate the chaos in construction
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Quality Assurance practices eliminate defects before they are built into the home, and structural warranties provide protection for those conditions that may not be discovered early. Building expert and Quality guru Stan Luhr of AxisPointe believes that builders who use sound QA practices coupled with a solid structural warranty offers the greatest consumer protection in today’s litigious world.
Luhr, who pioneered the builder quality movement in the mid-90’s will be demonstrating his new mobile iPhone application that he says will empower builders to manage their own QA/QC program, saving money over conventional third-party vendors.
"Builders are looking for products that will help eliminate the chaos in construction," Luhr said. "Our new InSite Mobile app will do just that."
Demonstrations will occur in the Exhibit Hall at the PCBC Builders Show June 27-28 in San Francisco, where thousands of home building professionals are expected to tour over 200 exhibits and attend educational events.
StrucSure Home Warranty has protected over 100,000 homes with FHA- and HUD- approved structural warranties since 1985, which provides builders with a transferrable insurance-backed warranty for 10 years. StrucSure’s streamlined enrollment process makes purchasing structural warranties an easy task.
By combining construction risk management services from AxisPointe with StrucSure’s post-construction insurance-backed protection, StrucSure’s Diana Hamblin believes it is a combination that will save builders money. “I am so proud of my builders who want to provide the best for their clients, and am thrilled that we can help them with additional tools to succeed.”
The new InSite Mobile™ iPhone app being demonstrated includes a task oriented project schedule linked directly to thousands of best practices “checkpoints”, which help field users eliminate problems before they are covered up. As tasks are opened, checkpoints are answered by the project builder, and the results are transmitted in real time to AxisPointe’s web-based servers.
AxisPointe leverages the power of the new iOS operating environment to deliver forensic-quality photos that are synchronized to GPS time and location stamping. Managers gain insight of all building operations using any computer, and the program can alert any number of stakeholders when schedules lag or if a required checkpoint is not answered.
Hamblin believes that builders who incorporate a measurable quality assurance program into their culture can have significant return on their investment which helps reduce warranty costs. “We are looking to partner with builders who are proud of their work, and want to constantly improve,” Hamblin said. “We see opportunities where our claims data will help improve building processes, so builders can eliminate the more common problems before they are built into the home.”
The AxisPointe web services tools include the HomeProfile™ document management system, where specific products such as appliances and green building products are linked to each home, using customized templates and an extensive 300,000-item database. Homeowners can access all home information, including photos taken during construction and important builder documents, via the internet. Original builder documents and photos are linked to the HomeProfile for the life of the home, and are available to subsequent homeowners via an access code.
