1. Organize, and reorder your photos into Job Albums

As your teams take photos, you may notice that certain roofing job pictures are more relevant to specific team members, customers, or vendors. Utilizing AccuLynx photos, you can enhance photo organization and ensure precise information sharing by creating albums.

Albums serve as a central hub for your photos, facilitating targeted sharing with both your team members and external parties. For example, at the start of a project, a team member might visit the site to assess the scope of work and begin taking pre-project photos. During this process, photos serve as valuable resources to provide a visual representation of the roofing job.

By including roofing job photos in a pre-project album that your team takes while on-site, you can offer your customers a clear understanding of the project’s scope. These photos enable customers to visualize the extent of the damage and can help prevent disputes with the property owner.

You can craft albums dedicated to your insurance adjuster, housing images that document storm damage, create a separate album for your crews to upload progress photos, or even compile specific photos for homeowners to access in each job.

2. Edit and tag your photos

Editing and annotating your roofing job photos ensures that the images you take are interpreted correctly in order to avoid misunderstanding. You and your team can point out the exact areas on the roof that need attention. For example, you could draw a circle around an area of damage or include information, such as the pitch and slope numbers.

Tagging AccuLynx photos helps team members know exactly what they are looking at. You can tag individual photos and videos or use the same tag in multiple photos. These tags are searchable and provide a better way to keep your albums organized. You can tag photos to show when a photo was taken, like Before or After. Or, you could label them directionally to provide more context of what the viewer is looking at.

3. Share AccuLynx photos

You can instantly share photos or albums via email or text, facilitating seamless communication with customers and colleagues. Once a project is complete you can expire the link, so access to the folder is no longer allowed. This ensures everyone stays well-informed and enhances overall communication.
