Transitioning from ISN to Spectora

Ready to switch your back office over to Spectora?

Our Spectora Academy Hub can help you with setting up your automated emails/texts, getting payment configured, and getting your Inspection Agreements in place.

If you’ve been with ISN for a while, you probably have a ton of data you don’t want to lose. We’ve made a data import script to move all your historical inspection data over to our platform. You’ll be able to maintain your agent contact lists, client lists, and inspection records. Our Business Metrics section will reflect all your past data, so you can always view the continuous history of your business.

Note: If you’re still on our free trial, the imported inspections count towards your free ones. We’d recommend first using your free inspections to get comfortable with the system and only importing your historical data once you’re a subscriber.

If you’re already a subscriber, first get up and running with Spectora’s business tools. Once you’re using them regularly, then run the import. That way, you’ll avoid any gaps in your inspection history.
