That’s why we created CompanyCam. You and your team can take unlimited photos—all of which are location and time-stamped, sent to the cloud, and stored securely—meaning you can access any project, anytime, anywhere.

You can’t be everywhere at once, but with CompanyCam you can see every photo your team takes the instant it’s taken. Whether you’re in the office, in your truck, or on the toilet—you can know exactly what’s getting done across your company.”
