VPS Inspec­tions IQ APP 

Each inspec­tion involves a com­pre­hen­sive site review as spec­i­fied by you. This can include inspec­tions of the: site perime­ter, exter­nal build­ings, inter­nal build­ings and ser­vices. We will also car­ry out meter read­ings if you would like us to. The VPS Inspec­tions Review Team then assess each inspec­tion report and will imme­di­ate­ly inform you of any­thing requir­ing attention.

The inspec­tion teams reg­u­lar­ly vis­it your premis­es to:

  • Check that pro­tec­tive mea­sures are functioning
  • The build­ing is in good order
  • Your prop­er­ty has not fall­en vic­tim to squat­ters or vandals

The VPS Inspec­tions IQ App is our lat­est inno­va­tion to ensure our inspec­tion ser­vice is both com­pre­hen­sive and ful­ly trans­par­ent. VPS Inspec­tors car­ry out their inspec­tions using NFC (Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tion) enabled devices to track exact­ly where the inspec­tor has been with­in the site.

The instal­la­tion of Geo­t­ags through­out the prop­er­ty pro­vide proof of pres­ence at spe­cif­ic points, such as meter box­es or items of par­tic­u­lar val­ue. Each inspec­tion is time stamped, some­thing many insur­ers request, and a full set of time stamped pho­tos are also avail­able. The VPS Inspec­tor is unable to com­lete an inspec­tion with­out touch­ing the device on each Geo­t­ag, which means cor­ners can not be cut.

All vis­it reports are stored and view­able on the secure area of the VPS Nav­i­ga­tor online por­tal so you can access it any time via a stan­dard brows­er, and we will also send you an alert if we iden­ti­fy any inci­dents or issues.
