Since 1986, US Inspect has performed over two million home inspections. As the leading provider of home and commercial inspections, US Inspect needed an engaging, user-friendly web presence to educate visitors on their variety of home inspection services, showcase their rich history, and make it easy to schedule appointments. We created a new US Inspect site that establishes a unified brand experience across the main home inspections site — targeted to homeowners, homebuyers, and agents — and commercial division site — targeted to investors, lenders, owners, property managers, facilities managers, and real estate professionals.
It made the most sense for the opportunity to scale for the client.
Integration with Scheduling System
We developed a hybrid solution that allowed US Inspect to continue using their custom scheduling system while we created a dynamic front-end engine with linked user records. To connect users with the backend scheduling system, we came up with a custom solution that used the standard Drupal login system interfaced to the authorization backend from US Inspect. This allowed us to log in existing users and create new ones on the fly using their system as a user source while creating new Drupal users to match. Our solution provides personalization information via Drupal, synchronization of credentials with US Inspect services, and the ability to launch the scheduler in a new window using authorized linked accounts.
To accommodate US Inspect’s diverse audience, we built the site using responsive design to adapt to different devices. Whether you access the site on a tablet, phone, laptop, desktop computer, or TV, we ensured that the content works the same across all devices and platforms. To reduce development time, we incorporated responsive design elements into our framework to enable mobile access and content consumption.
Our team incorporated lite intranet functionality into the new US Inspect site to serve as a resource for all employees. In addition to giving employees easy access to useful guides and manuals, this section also allows US Inspect to distribute valuable information like HR and department news among employees in a fast and efficient manner.
