The pen and paper method of completing TAS
reports has long been problematic for several reasons:

the sign tracker reporting

The manpower and time needed to update, complete and submit the reports. Filling out paper reports is a cumbersome process, hence, it is usually put off until the last possible moment when details are not fresh in anyone’s mind. This only makes the task more menial and time-consuming.


The logistics involved in the use and storage of these sensitive materials. Paper documents can be easily misplaced and damaged. Carting reports around and ensuring they are kept safe is not always an easy task at the job site. And, writing mistakes can make the report look like a jigsaw puzzle.


Most importantly, the uncertainty of whether reports are completed in a timely and accurate manner. As traffic-related lawsuits increase, demands for accurate and complete reports follow. In that case, trusting that your employees and subcontractors are adhering to provincial and state policies can be risky as incomplete or falsified reports can leave your companies legally vulnerable in the eventuality of an incident.

The SignTracker app lets you take control
