Introducing Markup – the latest update to Encircle Photos.

Easily Highlight Areas of Interest on Your Photos

In restoration, documentation is everything. At Encircle, we understand the importance of capturing and documenting every detail accurately and nothing does this better than photos. With the introduction of Markup, restoration contractors can now identify areas of interest and annotate directly on photos inside of Encircle, making it convenient to highlight damage caused by water, fire, and other incidents. This feature is also ideal for showing pre-existing damage and providing a comprehensive record of the property's condition.

You can markup all types of photos within Encircle, including general note photos, room overview photos, room note photos, content items, and even floor plans. This means that no matter what aspect of the property you are documenting, you can easily highlight areas of interest with just a few clicks.

See how it works!

Markup is another tool that makes documenting jobs in Encircle the preferred choice for restoration contractors. Because we understand the specific requirements restoration contractors face when it comes to documentation, we build features to improve efficiency in the field. So your teams can spend less time documenting and more time restoring properties.

We are excited to bring this feature to Encircle Photos – we know it will significantly enhance your photo documentation workflow. Other reasons restorers love using Encircle for visual documentation are that photos are automatically organized and labeled by the room in which they are taken. Every photo is also auto-stamped with the time, date, user, and precise GPS coordinates to ensure they can stand up to the toughest scrutiny. And Encircle makes is so fast and easy to generate professional photo reports that tell the complete story of a property loss.
