“The time Papertrail saves us is just phenomenal.
We were recording vital information and data onto paper forms. Transferring to a spreadsheet that was exported as a pdf which was getting uploaded into another system that only a few people could access. It just took forever and wasn’t transparent enough to effectively manage the equipment inspection schedules and record keeping.”
Head of fleet and operations
