Heritage, HomeTrex, Titanium and Vanguard Advanced Report Writing

Heritage and HomeTrex are high-performance reports built on the most advanced development platform in the computer industry, Microsoft Office. They are Integrated into Office Excel but no knowledge of Excel is needed to be able to create great reports easily and efficiently.  Custom Office can, and often do, hide the Office environment from users.  We know that Office power users like to be able to go under the hood and modify things.  We not only give you access to under the hood, we help you make the power modifications. These videos are intended for inspectors who want to go well beyond the basics.
