PALM COAST, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACI, a division of First American Mortgage Solutions, today unveiled the next generation of Sky Report, its cloud-based valuation platform, featuring a new property inspection application and a wide spectrum of capabilities for data population, market analysis, report delivery and application programming interfaces (APIs). These tools enable appraisers and other real estate professionals to enhance their productivity with the flexibility of working collaboratively anytime, anywhere and on any device.
New Product Features
- Sky Inspect app allows users on a phone or tablet to collect property data, take and assign photos, complete a sketch, and immediately sync the inspection to Sky Report. The Sky Inspect app is available for iOS and Android devices.
- Subject Data “quick start” wizard automatically searches public records, FEMA and prior report data by simply entering an address. Sky then displays the results in an all-in-one view for users to validate and analyze.

- Side-by-Side Comps allow users to view all comps in one screen without paging, in order to make adjustments, rearrange and edit comps without alternating screens.
