Change the Way You Demonstrate Compliance & Manage Risk. Forever

Designed for the adventure activities sector, Papertrail simplifies compliance, saves times on paperwork and reduces the risk for activity centre owners, staff, and children.

Adventure Industry Recommended

The team behind Papertrail are experienced adventure activity professionals. We had to find a better way to manage safety and equipment inspections, but couldn’t find one - so we created Papertrail.

Working in partnership with The Prince's Trust, The Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL) Activities Industry Mutual (AIM) and global equipment manufacturers, our software is now used by thousands of activity operators worldwide.

Complete Safety Management

Papertrail comes with built-in peace of mind. Never forget an inspection. Set your schedule for inspections, reviews, and training, so you are always one step ahead of compliance and regulations.

Say Goodbye to Paper & Excel

Safety records are too important to keep scattered between folders and spreadsheets. Secure your inspections, risk assessments and training logs in the cloud, with complete control over who can access what.

With Papertrail, safety management is easy, wherever you are. Write and update safety records from anywhere. Papertrail’s Apple & Android apps work offline, with a built-in barcode reader, RFID scanning, photograph and location services.

With over 100 zip trolleys which need inspecting and recording on a daily basis, a robust, secure and efficient record-keeping system is essential for Zip World's safety-minded team.

"We now use Papertrail to manage nearly all aspects of centre life, including vehicle and fire alarm checks. It really is the perfect solution for record keeping, and we'll only use it more as Zip World grows!"

Jim Bacon, Senior instructor - Zip World

Staff at The Castle Climbing Centre in North London need to comply with legislative requirements for equipment and safety checks - as well as ensuring their customers feel safe.

"As Centre Manager, I know I can pull up the whole inspection record for a piece of equipment without leaving my desk. I can log-in at any time for an overview, and quickly see which inspections are due. That gives me confidence and peace of mind."

Audrey Seguy, Managing Director - Castle Climbing

The team at Surf Lines were looking for an alternative to their paper based record-keeping system when they first discovered Papertrail.

"Papertrail makes us more efficient, saves us money and gives me peace of mind. It's an essential tool for any responsible business owner in the outdoor adventure industry, as far as I'm concerned."

Phil Nelson, Managing Director - Surf-Lines
