We’ve come a long way since the days of typing termite reports on an actual typewriter. Back in the 70s you would put a 5 layer carbon paper stack in the typewriter and hand type out entire reports. In the early 80s you would still used the 5 layer carbon stacks but at least a typewriter / word processor that could be programmed to automatically type out a few sentences of text by entering a short cut code.
Fixing typing errors was a nightmare and I knew there had to be a better way. Unfortunately the cost of early computers were outrageous. Not to mention if you could afford a pc, there was no software solutions for typing California termite reports. Once programs like Bugbase came out, everything changed for the better. You could now store an unlimited number of findings and recommendations, easily customize them for each report and reprint full reports with a simple click. Technology has changed the way termite reports are written for the better. No more carbon copies and almost no more faxing with the addition of PDFs and e-mail. What’s next?
