"inspectiTRAC™ gave us the ability to use our existing systems and create inspections specific to our facility." - Shawn Lauer-Ames, Quality Assurance Manager, Lakeville, Minn.

Input from manufacturing industry leaders describing a need for a solution to mobilize and automate their inspection, audit and observation collection process led to the creation of a mobile system that brings increased efficiency and effectiveness to the collection, transfer, access and reporting of data, called inspectiTRAC™.
Companies have documented an 80% reduction in man-hours and immeasurable increase in data accuracy through refining their traditional paper-based systems with the current version of inspectiTRAC™. Russell Associates’ culture of continuous innovation has led to further development and enhancement of this innovative system which will be released on July 2.
Russell Associates’ inspectiTRAC™ 2.0 adds new features and enhancements that allow for expanded customization of mobile inspection, audit and observation data collection. The system has been developed to the standards of industry professionals and provides users with the ability to collect and securely store documentation, eliminate redundant work and control the flow of data, while remaining flexible for application to any industry need. The new features of inspectiTRAC™ 2.0 provide companies with tools to further increase versatility of use, efficiency and effectiveness.
The Windows tablet-based program will now allow the use of:
o Secure data uploading allows for immediate access to data as it is collected.
o Data collection questionnaire can be further customized through implementation of “not applicable” and scaled criteria options.
o Audit feature specifically implemented for audit completion allows data collectors to reenter a collection at anytime.
Professionals in multiple industries are excited about the results of their implementation of inspectiTRAC™ and the new features and enhancements that will be applied to inspectiTRAC™ 2.0 on July 2.
“We have looked at other models in the past for electronic collection and we were offered “canned” content that did not necessarily meet our needs. inspectiTRAC™ gave us the ability to use our existing systems and create inspections specific to our facility and our needs,” said Shawn Lauer-Ames, Quality Assurance Manager, Lakeville, Minn.
“With inspectiTRAC 2.0 and the ability to receive real-time data from multiple tablets on our server I will be able to send out information to anyone that I want to. If I see something that was recorded yesterday that needs to be acted upon, I can get it to the appropriate person right away,” said Tom Jeys, EHS Manager, Waterloo, Iowa. “Many of the features that were on our wish list are included in inspectiTRAC™ 2.0, I think this will make a good thing even better.”
