San Francisco based startup Happy Inspector revealed the results of a study conducted in collaboration with Campus Evolution Villages showing how they have saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars using Happy Inspector.

San Francisco based startup Happy Inspector recently revealed the results of a study conducted in collaboration with Campus Evolution Villages, a university and off-campus property management service that handles over 10,000 units in total.

Happy Inspector is an enterprise grade - cloud-based - mobile app provider that helps companies streamline workflows by completely digitizing data collection and reporting for mission critical inspections, due diligence, periodic reviews, audits and checklists.

Using Happy Inspector’s platform CEV realized significant savings in time and money better spent on other initiatives. In total, CEV reduced its inspection times by 66% after adopting Happy Inspector. "We are probably saving about 20% and reporting around 95% in inspection time, " said CEV COO Wesley Deese. "With Happy Inspector, every time we have an issue or make a suggestion, it’s responded to really quickly. It makes me feel at ease that I know someone is actually listening."

Inspections are also more accurate and consolidated, helping CEV cut costs through bulk ordering. "Happy Inspector enables us to predict when we need to replace any asset in the unit," said Wesley. "This alone saves us thousands of dollars and time."

The financial impact is impressive, with CEV now saving an estimated total of $180,000 per year. Of that, $72,000 is directly attributable to cutting out paper costs via Happy Inspector's built-in email delivery system. Tenants, of course, are also fans of the update. "The students and our landlords really love how they receive the reports virtually in real time!” says Wesley.
