What are the requirements on my company’s end?

All we need to set up the platform is an address list. After the platform has been set up, we ask for enthusiastic “early adapters” in order to integrate the platform within your organisation as thoroughly as possible. By holding personal interviews of 30 minutes each, we determine the best applications of the platform and we ensure optimal integration.

Product

What is a condition survey?

The condition survey is as prescribed by the Dutch Standard NEN2767. The only difference is that we use new, modern tools such as image recognition technologies and drones with the goal of performing faster and more accurate condition surveys.

What is a quantity takeoff?

A quantity takeoff is a process that assesses the dimensions of all the elements of a building’s interior and exterior. The dimensions are determined by our image recognition algorithms with a proven accuracy rate of 95 to 98.5%. The advantage is that the quantity takeoff is performed within a few minutes instead of a few days.

Is Spotr.ai completely automatic?

No, our algorithms will not replace people. Our vision is to combine the best of both worlds. Spotr.ai does all the boring and repetitive work, while people check and supplement. The result of this combination is to perform better, faster, and more accurate work.

Does Spotr.ai replace building inspectors?

No, our algorithms will never replace building inspectors. Their precious work is needed to check and supplement the results of our software.

Does Spotr.ai integrate with other software?

Yes, it is possible to build real-time links with other software packages via our API.

Can the platform also inspect interiors?

Yes, interiors are also inspected in our platform through photos taken by residents, inspectors, and contractors. The photos can be easily added to the correct house via our app or photo-link.
