Resource of the week

Thank you once again to Matt Elder, who pointed us towards iAuditor – a great app for running checklists and processes on your mobile device.

It comes with a selection of publicly available templates, but you can also create your own to cover pretty much any situation you can imagine. It’s handy for inspections and viewings – meaning that if you delegate the process of visiting potential acquisitions like we discuss in this week’s main topic, you can make sure all the information you want comes back to you in a convenient format.

Just don’t go holding your breath for this advice to actually be implemented…
