TRAC Intermodal

TRAC Intermodal is North America's leading intermodal equipment provider and marine chassis pool manager.

TRAC approached FocustApps and tasked us with implementing a consolidation reporting portal where they could access all their company reports. The Web App needed to display a list of reports from multiple sources with the ability to customize to their needs for specific viewing.

Utilizing Power BI, successful execution of this project led to the devellopment of multiple Web Applications, various Mobile Applications, Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, Project Management, Staff Augmentation, R&D and more. This succes includes a Chassis Tracking beacon that works on mobile, web, and a custom piece of hardware to track the chassis locations inside a yard for pick up, allowing decreased yard time. Additionally, a Chassis Asset Inspection mobile app and an EZ Book mobile app were created to allow for smoother business industry transactions.

The results of these combined projects have given TRAC a higher ability to track their internal projects as well as initiate new projects.
