Documentation

Over the past few years I have preached the importance of moisture testing and documenting your results. Documentation takes time, and there is a cost associated to documentation as I am sure some of your competitors do not go through this process. But, I also believe there is a value in documenting your findings not only for you but for your customer to ensure you are providing the best overall service to them and their investment in flooring. Now there is a web site that allows you to do this from your cell phone.

FloorDocs.com is a new online tool offering start-to-finish documentation of Flooring Installation and Concrete Moisture Testing. You take the Pictures, they document the Job!
FloorDocs.com allows you to take photographs, add notes from your cell phone and upload them to the website and saves them for future reference if and when needed.
