MarketSharp Software Launches Lead Paint Compliance Module for Remodelers

February 21, 2011 – La Crosse, Wisconsin – MarketSharp Software, the leading customer relationship management (CRM) & cloud computing solution for remodelers and home service professionals, proudly announces the launch of a new Lead Paint Compliance (LPC) module – a utility for maintaining renovation recordkeeping and proper documentation required by the EPA’s new Repair, Renovation and Painting (RRP) Rule.

The RRP Rule, which began on April 22, 2010, is designed to help reduce the hazards of lead based paint exposure during renovation projects. The RRP Rule is best known for the specific safety work practices that must be followed by contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects for compensation that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 to prevent lead contamination. In addition to work safety practices, the Rule also requires contractors to keep extensive recordkeeping notes and documentation for a minimum of three years for every renovation project.

The LPC module in MarketSharp software was created based on tremendous feedback from existing remodeling clients having difficulty meeting the recordkeeping and documentation compliance demands of the RRP Rule.  The LPC module is designed to store all the required details and provide a library of mandatory RRP documents that can be customized for each home or facility. “With the thought of fines of up to $37,500 for non-compliance, our biggest fear is keeping tabs on all the extensive paperwork.  This new module in MarketSharp is just what we need as added protection. By helping us properly record our findings required by the RRP Rule, we can then provide the necessary documentation in the event of an EPA safety audit,” stated Steve Rennekamp, President, Energy Swing Windows.

The LPC module enables contractors to record and track lead paint details, customize and print required forms from a template library of RRP documents plus store the signed/completed forms and documentation as readily available attachments. “We wanted to be sure we covered ‘all the bases’ of the RRP Rule for our users to make recordkeeping and document processing as easy as possible,” stated Jason Oefstedahl, General Manager. The LPC module is included at no additional cost to existing customers or new users of MarketSharpm Lite, Standard or Pro versions.
