HERS Rating Software Development For A Real Estate Company [Case Study]

03 Dec 2020

Organizations need a streamlined approach to handle permit management requirements with a dedicated Home Energy Rating System (HERS). It helps improve communication between schedulers, individuals, permitting agencies and more. HERS rater software with a unified view helps manage to decrease energy costs and increase savings. Learn how we helped North America-based client modernize their legacy system with a custom app.

Project Overview

Our client specializes in full-service permit & HERS testing. They provide a paperless system to manage the third party inspection & compliance needs of customers. The need was to re-engineer their existing web app to manage their field workforce. It would enable them to schedule and track their jobs effectively.

Rishabh Software helped modernize the HERS compliance software with a new interface & enhanced features. We then created an intuitive mobile app while eliminating the redundant data entry points.


  • Poor user experience resulted in low reach and engagement
  • Inaccurate reporting and tracking of service requests
  • Manual billing and invoicing for completed tasks
  • Data integration challenges with third party document submission tools


We followed a sprint-based implementation approach to re-engineer the HERS permit software.
