What's new in Hydro - Encircle's moisture documentation tool

Encircle Hydro is the only paperless moisture documentation tool created to protect restoration contractors' profitability on water damage jobs. Hydro's water mitigation workflow helps field teams work collaboratively and quickly to document and share moisture data in real-time. The result is faster and more well-informed decision making for restoration contractors, and less pushback on estimates from adjusters and third-party reviewers.

With the latest updates, Hydro is front and center in Encircle and becomes an important documentation workflow on every water job.

Navigating the new Hydro home screen.On the new Hydro home screen, Mitigation Supervisors and Project Managers can keep water jobs on track with an at-a-glance view of alerts, psychrometrics, materials, and equipment information.

Even when they aren’t on site, they can check in on the job, see drying progress details, and intervene if things are going off track — all from one screen. No need to interrupt field crews with calls or texts if it isn’t necessary!

Here's an overview of each section on the new Hydro home screen:

1 - Tasks

An easy-to-follow checklist makes sure that field teams of any skill level can capture all of the required moisture documentation on every visit. The task list can also be edited to your liking — learn more here.

2 - Alerts

Review all active and historical alerts on a job, including temperature, humidity, dew point, grain depression, and equipment alerts. Managers can have insight into what’s going on and can intervene quickly before small issues become costly problems. Learn more alerts here.

3 - Psychrometrics

4 - Materials

All things equipment, all in one place. View a summary of type and quantity of equipment placed, days the equipment is/was on site, as well as equipment readings and performance.
