Encircle app updates improve documentation for water mitigation

New user-friendly interface combined with built-in checklists simplifies the drying and documenting of complex water mitigation workflows for field teams

August 15, 2023 – (Kitchener ON) – Encircle is pleased to announce exciting enhancements to its water mitigation tool Hydro, including a more user-friendly interface. With the latest updates, Encircle is bringing moisture documentation to the forefront of their mobile field documentation application.

With a simple checklist built into the workflow, teams capture moisture data right in the field and that data is available in real-time for at-a-glance job review from anywhere. The new Hydro job review screen gives Mitigation and Project Managers real-time access to psychrometric, equipment, and material details, as well as a summary of all of the documentation captured on a water job. This makes it easier to check in on jobs from anywhere at any time, without interrupting field crews with calls or texts.

For the majority of restoration contractors, water mitigation is a primary line of business – and has historically been very profitable. But given that carriers and managed repair networks are now leveraging technology to audit moisture reports and scrub estimates for charges without supporting documentation, many restorers are watching the profitability of water jobs shrink year over year.

By implementing Encircle Hydro for moisture documentation, restoration contractors give their field teams a consistent and reliable water mitigation workflow to dry and document. Unlike paper dry logs or other digital tools for moisture documentation , Hydro offers the simplicity required for technicians of all skill levels to actually use in the field. Encircle Hydro is the only digital moisture tool designed for collaborative field use that provides managers with access to reliable and complete moisture data in real-time. No more waiting around the shop at the end of the day for illegible, incomplete, or missing moisture data.

"What's nice with the new layout is that it's like a checklist. It's user-friendly and my Emergency team has given so much great feedback about how it has simplified things. It's easier for them to navigate through claims," says Todd Savage, BC Region Operations Manager, FIRST ONSITE

Mike Aho, Encircle Product Manager, says, “We’re excited for the benefits restorers will experience from these updates. Managers will be able to make faster, more informed decisions about drying strategies to keep jobs on track, and Estimators can start estimates sooner, with complete and trustworthy documentation to justify line items and ensure they are paid without pushback.”

The Hydro moisture documentation tool is included in the monthly subscription cost and is available to all Encircle users. For more information, visit
