For those juggling a list of REO properties that must be managed and maintained, Mobile Business Concepts (MBC) created an app and software to make the process smoother and more efficient.

“We built this app because I have family members in the preservation industry, and I saw how hard it was for them to get their photo documentation that was needed for their clients from their guys in the field,” said Jason Harvey, CEO and founder of MBC.

REO Photo, the app’s name, will help contractors get organized through features such as the ability to assign jobs, track progress, and document work with photos.
Harvey said that the idea came after seeing family members in the industry wait an additional hour to meet a field worker to get a SIM card, which appeared to be an easier solution than waiting for the worker to go home, email the photos, and then have them downloaded.
“Once [MBC] got involved and started to see how bad the issue was, we realized how much more productive the app could make contractors and their field employees,” Harvey said. “On average, we have witnessed the app save each field worker two hours of work each day.”
Through the app, field staffers can get directions to the assigned property and report issues using their phone or email without leaving the app. Another feature is that it allows job profiles to be sorted by status-accepted, pending or completed. In addition, tasks such as electrical fixes, trash removal, or exterior maintenance can be viewed and checked off.
The app will be available March 1 through iTunes and the App Store and made available to Android products shortly afterwards.

Wow, can't beleive there's not more replies here! We went with a different provider, an app called Pruvan Direct, but using this service instead of the ol' go home and upload or drop off cards has been GREAT! I can't think of a single reason why any preservation or REO company wouldn't benefit from using an app like this one.

We use this mobile app called EZmobile to do quick order download, completion, photo labeling and result upload directly from the field. It works on both Android and iOS.
I know this is old and may be the reason im writing this. I can no find this app anywhere. went to the site and created a profile and i can not find the app in the playstore. is it still available? or if your using it can you share it with me?

You can download it from their main site. Just click on the resources tab and then click on mobile apps. From there you can download it.

Pruvan is definitely the way to go if you want to save money in this industry, I really recommend it as well.
