    Is there a helpful report writing software for commercial appraisers? Clickforms, Alamode, etc?

    I've heard various opinions on this. Can one use a report writing software for commercial appraisal reports? Some say every appraisal just varies too much to make it efficient in the commercial world. Others speak of these softwares/ templates like the're gold. Currently I just find a similar...

    Total Settings

    Does anyone know how to backup/save total settings (quicklists, contacts, etc) WITHOUT paying for Exact/vault? I know several use external drives for their files, which I am investigating, but losing all my settings would be a killer...taken me years to build all those up.

    Alamode Location Map Accuracy

    Anybody else ever check the accuracy of the distances in the location map. I was comparing with https://www.mapdevelopers.com/distance_from_to.php and found that the distances between the subject and comps was oftentimes off by 300%+ by how the crow flies or driving. That might make a big...

    Appraiser Genie Vs. Time Savings Vs. Expense

    Who is using Appraiser Genie? For all that it purports to do, I'm surprised at how few comments exist on this forum. After 2-3 years in business, is no one here using Genie? Is it all smoke and mirrors? I just renewed my membership with Alamode, and I was thinking of trying Genie for the next...

    For Dave/matt Biggars [re: Total]

    Please inbox me... I'm a frustrated customer and really would welcome the opportunity to speak or communicate directly with you. Been in contact with customer service - numerous times - over a year and half period without any changes/improvements or resolution. While I appreciate...

    Mr Biggars. Can You Help Me Get An Improvement Implemented?

    I've input a time-saving suggestion over a year ago thru your tech support dept; I've phoned or emailed multiple times... no result or implementation... I feel tech support is useless as I'm not sure if what I'm requesting is being communicated effectively to your programmers, or even at all...

    Sufficiency Of Cost Approach?

    Questions for you reviewers... How thorough does the cost approach have to be to be considered "sufficient"? Here is an example from Marshall & Swift's swiftestimator plugin for TOTAL from a la mode. Comments on the left hand side of the cost approach indicate "See Data Entry Report for...

    Is A La Mode Getting Desperate?

    I received a newsletter today from a la mode. I usually receive various emails from them because I use them for my webpage but still use ACI for my software appraisals needs. This newsletter today bothered me, one statement in particular I took issue with. Quote: "And we say "yet again"...
