improveit! 360 and Kachina Lead Paint Solutions Announce Partnership
to Help Remodelers Stay RRP Compliant; Avoid Fines
improveit! 360 integrates Kachina RRP compliance forms in its business management application for easy compliance with RRP federal/state laws and regulations.
Columbus, Ohio – October 3, 2011 – improveit! 360, the nation’s premier web-based business management application for remodelers and contractors, announced its partnership with Kachina Lead Paint Solutions. This alliance was formed to make it easier for home improvement businesses to comply with RRP regulations, receive expert help and maintain the use of the most updated RRP forms.
Kachina Lead Paint Solutions, nationally accredited by the EPA to provide resources and training in lead-safe practices in all 50 states, sought a partner to help home improvement companies gain access to guidance as well as the latest forms needed to be RRP compliant. With extremely busy schedules, it is easy for contractors and remodelers to miss regulations passed that affect the industry, and the steps to take to make sure those laws are followed. “We were looking for an effective way to extend our reach into home improvement companies to assist more remodelers to keep up with regulations, make it easy for them to get the forms they need to be compliant, and maintain these important documents in one place. Our answer was improveit! 360,” said Paul Toub, Vice President of Marketing for Kachina Lead Paint Solutions.
improveit! 360 offers home improvement companies a simple and streamlined approach to tracking and maintaining all mandatory lead paint compliance paperwork. improveit! 360 can easily track important compliance details such as:
-Which staff members are certified renovators;
-When RRP documents are received on a sale;
-When RRP compliance is required based on the age of the structure.
By integrating Kachina’s RRP forms into improveit! 360, remodelers can be confident that all RRP compliance documents and certifications will be organized and easily accessible, leaving them with one less item to worry about so they can focus more on their business. Customers can opt to use the premier support service, which gives them access to Kachina compliance experts to answer their questions, and the opportunity to receive discounts on additional items related to compliance, such as Renovate Right pamphlets.
Kachina’s RRP documents can be easily stored on the customer record within improveit! 360 so compliance information is centrally located and easily available should an audit occur.
“Our Business Management application already lowers the cost and time required to manage RRP compliance. Integrating Kachina’s forms and guidance takes compliance enforcement and tracking to a new level, not to mention helps to prevent costly fines, lawsuits, and headaches. As two companies that started by contractors for contractors, Kachina and improveit! 360 are looking out for the best interest of home remodelers.”
