TruQC, of St. Louis, MO, has launched a suite of cloud-based apps for job-site documentation for the iPad, developed for industrial painting by industrial painting workers.

TruQC

With products dedicated to job-site safety, better inspection practices, and more efficient time tracking and accounting methods, TruQC says its products will “revolutionize the traditional paper-based job-site documentation process.”

• TruSafety is a documentation bundle designed to simplify and effectively manage the site safety checklist, weekly environment report, toolbox talk and incident/injury/illness report, near-miss forms.

• TruInspection includes the daily inspection report and complies with SSPC QP, QP2 and QS1 standards.

• The TruCost accounting bundle is designed to improve time reporting and recording.

The technology is designed to ensure objective field-data collection, increase operational efficiencies, reduce error and comply with industry regulatory and technical standards.

‘Objectivity and Accountability’

“We believe it’s a game changer – something that can really influence the way job sites are managed,” said Dane McGraw, VP of Development at TruQC. “We’re confident this technology will bring much more objectivity and accountability to the job-site, thus making for a better process, product and end infrastructure worldwide.”

AppSync, a proprietary software created by InspiringApps, allows TruQC bi-directional syncing for app-to-server and server-to-app communication, enabling the merging of job-site data entered offline as well as the ability of multiple users to view data entered by others in near-real time.

“Working with InspiringApps allowed us to free our thinking from traditional network constraints to truly think outside the box,” said Ross Boyd, VP of Operations at TruQC. “We were able to create a mobile application that will transform job-site performance and productivity across a multitude of industries.”

Both McGraw and Boyd worked for a St. Louis-area industrial painting contractor for several years before launching TruQC. Both hold various coatings certifications. Boyd is a NACE Level 2 Coating Inspector; McGraw is an SSPC PCI Level 2 Certified Inspector.
