  • Equipment operator clocks in on the SHOOTRAC mobile app
    • The app now reports the worker’s location every 15 minutes to SHOOTRAC
  • When the worker climbs into the excavator, he scans the SHOOTRAC barcode on the equipment
    • SHOOTRAC now records the time, location and operator that is using the equipment
  • The equipment operator begins excavating for a municipal waterline project.
    • As the pipes are being laid, a barcode is applied and the pipe is SHOOTRAC’ed in place by the pipefitter
  • A hydraulic line ruptures on the excavatorAt the end of the day the equipment operator scans the SHOOTRAC barcode on the equipment to discontinue its usage then and clocks out.
    • The equipment operator takes a picture and attaches it to the excavators record in SHOOTRAC and then sends a message to the PM
    • The PM reviews the pictures in the SHOOTRAC web app and finds the closet employee to the equipment dealer.
    • The PM emails a photo of the damaged part to dealer along with other relevant information found in SHOOTRAC.
    • The dealer has the part waiting for the employee that arrives to pick it up.
