What if you lost all your reports tomorrow?
Written by Candice Wright on August 18, 2016
When it comes to file storage solutions for appraisers, there are four basic elements you'd need to take into account:
- It should be large — You have to keep at least five years of reports, no matter how you store them, either in paper file cabinets, hard drives, or some online storage solutions.
- It should automatically backup your files and software settings — How about backing up your data including software settings, QuickLists (or you can call it canned comments), contacts, signatures, and comps database?
- It should recover your files when stuff happens — Would you be able to recover you files quickly and easily if catastrophes strike your appraisal business?
Does your storage solution do all of this? If not, then it doesn't serve the basic needs of an appraiser.
Check out the comparison chart below. Most file storage solutions fall short of everything your appraisal business needs, like 24/7 phone support, automatic database restoration, long-term file storage, and exporting abilities (to name a few), but Vault has it all. Vault ensures your appraisal files and settings are always accessible in case anything could happen to your computer.
