HIP Office has the ability to import records from the Inspection Support Network (ISN) system into your installation. This allows your historic records to be included with your current records, and allows those orders to be included in your historical reporting. 


In addition to the historical orders and related financial information, the information for your past inspection clients and real estate agents are imported. 


Note: Historical orders are imported as read-only records and are not able to be edited. 


Exporting Records from ISN


To export the records from ISN, you will need to log in under an account with privileges to export data.


To allow for proper importation of records, it is recommended that all records be exported. 


Note: All six files are required for conversion, so the export file must exist for proper import.
