One month trial
You can trial ProofDocs for $49 for one month, this gives you unlimited use of the system including a full Arboricultural Report Template and as many reports or tests as you want.
The report template is comprehensive covering all components of an arborist report suitable for planning applications, usually used for development applications. You can edit this template and save various versions within your account, or elsewhere, to use and edit as you choose. You can also create or import new report templates and save them within your account.
The data you collect in the field will be automatically inserted into your chosen template to create a close-to-finished tree report.
If you choose not to continue using ProofDocs, you will still have an exceptional, professional template that you can put in MS Word format and use ongoing.
It may take a couple of reports to get used to ProofDocs, once you are familiar with it reports will become simple, field time will be reduced, office time can be halved and most of the hassle will be history.

How much profit can ProofDocs generate for an arborist?
We find ProofSafe usage will save the average (paper based) consulting arborist 1 to 3 hours per day or around 40 hours per month.
Time is valuable, if you're running a tree business on the tools with a few reports on the side you will find just 1 or 2 standard reports per week using ProofSafe can save you at least 100 hours over a year, if you charge out at $100 per hour that's a significant saving in time and/or money.
More importantly it makes life MUCH easier, taking all the hassle and considerable desk time out of reports so you can get back to running a business or being an arborist, or time with family or .....whatever.
ProofDocs is a user pays system, you are only charged AFTER you have used the service, consequently there are no refunds offered, however if you choose to stop using ProofDocs because you are not happy with the service then you will not be charged for the final calendar month - that is any part of the month in which you told us you were stopping.
If for some reason a refund is required it will be paid via EFT to your nominated account.
You are required to check your bill and payment each month, if there is a problem or you disagree with the costing you must contact us immediately.
If you disagree with the way we have charged then you need to contact us via email or phone immediately and we will sort it out with you. If you are not happy with the way we have calculated your bill and we cannot reach agreement then we will refund the amount you are disputing for that last calendar month. We will not refund amounts from previous months unless it is clear we have made an accounting mistake and the amount charged does not match our pricing as set out above in the Pricing section.
Once you understand the service ProofDocs is offering and after trialing it for a month, the next step is to complete the registration process, this will include supplying your preferred payment method and details. You will then be set up to use the full service. If required we are also able to establish a company profile for you where you can have a set of company templates as well as individual arborist templates. This means each member of the team can have their own templates but if the company wants to create a new template or make significant changes then the whole team can take a copy of the new template.
At the end of each calendar month your account will be automatically debited, the amount charged will reflect your usage of the service. You will then be emailed a receipt.
Your account will be considered active and you will accrue charges each month until you let us know via the contact page or through the 'My account' page that you wish to stop.
At any time you can login and go to the 'My account' section of the website and see your payment / usage status.
