ecoInsight Enhances iPad App, Launches Swiss Army Knife for Lighting Professionals

New mobile software update saves time, money and energy consumption with new multimedia capabilities

(ATLANTA)–ecoInsight, a mobile and on-demand applications provider for the building industry, is celebrating the beta release of version 2.0.0 for its revolutionary, free Mobile Audit for iPad. The update comes loaded with new multimedia features that allow photo capture and audio recording, making collecting lighting data in the field a more efficient process.

“We provide energy audit solutions to help transform businesses and make the data collection process, which is vital to this industry, as efficient as possible,” said Sean McCloskey, CEO of ecoInsight. “With this new update, we’re taking that mission further with multimedia enhancements.”

With over $50 million in lighting retrofit proposals created in January, representing 174 million kWh in proposed energy savings, the existing app is already a dependable tool for lighting professionals.  Nine out of the top 10 lighting distributors already rely on this software and are seeing productivity improvements of 30-40%.  This new update takes the existing mobile app to the next level.

Without that extra burden of carrying a digital camera and recorder on-site, users can save time and even mark-up notes directly on the images themselves.  The audio capture technology will replace typed notes, allowing the user to capture more detailed information and collect notes faster. Once uploaded, the photo and audio files can be shared with team members and business partners for additional analysis and input, instantly syncing the data for faster collaboration.

“Having this new capability dramatically decreases the time spent capturing issues and making initial recommendations in the field,” said Robert Sherburn, VP, Market Development. “This allows our users to deliver proposals to customers even faster and win more business.”
