Photobook is mobile app and web platform that provides the social housing sector with an affordable solution to real-time, instant inspection reporting.

Photobook allows you to complete any report, survey, or inspection digitally – with instant PDF downloads. You can create your own digital forms or choose from an entire library of forms specifically designed by the Photobook community for the housing sector.

Photobook is being used by more than 50 organisations across the housing sector, and powered more than 250,000 inspections in 2020!

With Photobook, you will:

Increase productivity

-The app has been designed with your frontline teams in mind. Key features such as voice to text, an in-build photo capture and intuitive question selection makes it easier and quicker to capture information when out and about.

-Everything captured on the app is seamlessly transferred to the web platform where a PDF report can be created instantly. Removing duplication of work, this paperless solution allows teams to access information from site as soon as an inspection is completed.

Improve performance

-By rating your places with Photobook, you can identify estates and neighbourhoods that don’t meet your requirements – whether that’s issues with fly-tipping, graffiti, gardens, communal areas, car parks and more. With a consistent assessment, you can prioritise the areas that need the most attention, as well as track common problems or issues that might need a different preventative approach.

-The web platform presents performance dashboards, heat maps and RAG ratings to help you see trends in the type of reports, problem areas with high volume issues as well as comparisons between anticipated inspections and those actually carried out.
