Kykloud launched the first RICS approved mobile dilapidations survey software for iPad at yesterday’s RICS Dilapidations Conference – the leading surveying industry event attended by more than 300 dilapidations experts and professionals.

A common theme at the conference – which also covered legal cases and the impact of energy regulations – was how surveyors need to be armed with the latest information and guidance and use effective tools for gathering evidence from site inspections, so our cloud based RICS approved Dilapidations Survey Software and asset management portal was certainly very well placed.

It’s little wonder that there was such a huge interest in our CPD session and many of the delegates took time out over lunch to test out the Dilapidations Survey Software and the survey templates which have been designed specifically to support the dilapidations profession in its use of mobile technology.

The dilapidations survey software will enable those carrying out dilapidations work to benefit from the use of mobile technology safe in the knowledge that the reports they are producing meet stringent RICS standards.

The Kykloud survey templates and reports have been designed to meet the latest RICS Guidance Note (2012) and have been road tested by leading surveyors including members of RICS Dilapidations Forum to ensure that it meets the very specific needs of the profession.

Jon Rowling FRICS chair, RICS Dilapidations Forum Steering Group said: “It’s great to see mobile technology helping surveyors to meet standards and to gather evidence.”

Over the past 12 months, the benefits of mobile technology to the surveying industry have been proven repeatedly, with surveyors using iPad technology reducing surveying time by up to 50%, increasing accuracy and consistency across portfolio-wide schemes and increasing their competitiveness, resulting in more successful tenders.

Yet to date, little has been available to meet the very specific needs of those working in dilapidations, which is why we have teamed with RICS to launch this mobile Dilapidations Survey Software to address their requirements.

Kykloud was again proud to sponsor one of the most well attended events in the RICS calendar.
