What People Are Saying

Hear how Visual Approvals has improved our customer's daily processes.

"VA supports all the aspects of our business from the assessment and inspection stages, processing of council applications, document generation, invoicing and ordering requirements as well emailing. VA also provides clear and accurate checking processes for our staff and allows easy tracking of a job’s progress."

Chris Easton


The great plus with VA is that it is paperless! Everything is electronic from the signing of documents to onsite inspections with tablets, we do not keep any hard copy files and we use a lot less paper. VA has made the entire permit process far more efficient. I would highly recommend VA!

Tim Anderson


"Imagine every piece of building legislation you operate under built into a software program. That’s VA. After using VA for 14 years, I wouldn’t choose anything else."

Gareth Martin

Director and Building Certifier

“SMS is working very well, we receive about 3 to 4 telephone calls each day to reschedule inspections from the SMS. We have noticed the reduction in inspections being cancelled on the day, which is making our inspectors more profitable.

John Reeve


“When I think of Visual Approvals the word that comes to mind is ‘easy’. Visual Approvals provides easier access to each file, it’s easy to create reports, electronic filing with the councils is easy, it’s easy to do QLeave and QBCC returns, it has many searchable fields making it quick and easy to find and retrieve information.”

Ken Murray

Founder and Building Certifier
