Photo Capture

Check your applied load restraints and capture them

Protect yourself, your industry and all stakeholders in the transportation of steel. By capturing a record of the restraints applied the app is facilitating a self-check audit of the load before departure. The photos are associated with the guideline used and the place of pick-up creating a personal record for users and their companies. These details are then available for the next 30 days.

Each user will have a personal log-in to the mobile application. Here details can be managed to assist in operation of the application by modifying user contact details and capturing regularly used vehicle registrations. Users can also view their available photo capture logs.

Transport companies and their contractors will have access to the portal to manage their drivers, view mobile app usage and review the photo captures. Manufacturing companies will be able to view mobile app usage and view associated photo captures. Site Location admins will be able to manage the details relating to their location and will be able to send notifications to all devices, providing a single place for site location communication.

The web portal will be accessible through desktop browsers. Supported browsers are Chrome 35+, Safari 5.1+ and Firefox 30+.
