The program also helps satisfy legal compliances and allows all parties to more accurately identify any cost overruns.

Payments

Customers can now pay with credit/debit cards up front through the platform. Customers who prefer paying with cash can use services like MoneyGram or Western Union through TRKR to pay instead of having to carry cash. Of course, for those with established credit, traditional invoicing is still an option.

The driver also has the ability to record video, photos and notes to further document the job site experience. TRKR Mobile ensures that the driver records are up to date. If a contractor, all licensing is also kept up to date.
