LMS, a Home Information Pack (HIP) provider, has today launched an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) specialist called Energy Reports and Surveys Ltd (ERS).
LMS says it launched ERS in response to demand for a specialist EPC provider that can deliver a large volume of cases.
ERS says it uses the latest technology to deliver efficient and cost effective EPCs.
The firm currently employs 140 full-time domestic energy assessors (DEAs), each armed with a hand-held computer linked to the company’s central office.
The computer allows the central office to manage all stages of the certification, from booking appointments to quality control.
ERS says the technology, combined with a paperless process, allows it to process certificates quickly and at low cost.
Paul Staley, managing director of ERS, explains: “By controlling our Assessors diaries, we are able to schedule EPCs in the most time efficient way for our customers. The DEA will travel to the site using the Satellite Navigation on their computer.
“All of the assessed information is inputted digitally, automatically sent back for central storage and sent to the Assessors’ computers ready to process that evening.”
The firm aims to confirm the time of an inspection within 4 hours of the request and clients should receive a full report within 24 hours of a DEA's visit.
