When we began building Spot-r, we set out to create the first scalable, real-time location solution to identify safety incidents and report hazards as they occur. Since then, our system has expanded to monitor equipment location, utilization, and operator identity – indoors and outdoors – and effectively notify workers to an emergency situation that requires evacuation to their muster point – all in real-time.
Everything we do is for our customers in the field, and we’re constantly enhancing our solution to address their needs and maximize value for end users, including adding more customizable reporting tools in our Cloud-based dashboard.
If our proprietary network is the backbone of the connected jobsite that collects and transmits real-time information from devices worn by workers and tagged onto equipment, our dashboard is the portal that makes this information available and actionable. Below, we round-up some of our favorite dashboard updates and enhancements from the last year.

In March, we released a subcontractor-specific dashboard, which allows subs to access safety and productivity data pertaining to their specific crew only. Subcontractors with access to the Spot-r dashboard can assign different user roles to members of their crew (e.g. “Manager” or “Viewer”) and enable push notifications when workers of their crew only arrive on site or trigger a self-alert, for example.
In May, we added a historical slider to the Project Zones page, which allows users to see historical workforce and equipment deployment/movement by project zones in 10-minute increments. Users can stop at specific points in time and click into zones for additional details, including headcount by worker or sub. (As always, the “Buildings” view on our Project Zones page allows users to easily see floor/elevation location in addition to horizontal zone.)
The expanded Workers page allows Spot-r users to document relevant certifications within the individual worker’s profile, helping to manage compliance. Workers can be tagged as “New to Site,” and designated personnel can receive text messages when specific workers arrive at the site. These categories can be pulled into custom-built Spot-r reports (in addition to custom metrics like “Event Rate” that allows users to monitor the ratio of worker safety events to time spent on site, helping to identify trends).
Our Reports page allows users to view and download out-of-the-box reports including site events, hours by floor, and timesheets by week, month, project to date or any other date range. In addition, users can create customized reports incorporating a variety of Spot-r data sets – from one Spot-r jobsite or many – and can schedule them to be delivered straight to their inbox. Manual safety events, as an example, can be tagged according to company categories and can be pulled into custom safety reports, allowing managers to easily view events related to “slippery conditions.”
For our New York City customers, we added the ability to easily export certification information maintained in the Spot-r system into the required NYC DOB Local Law 196 format, saving valuable time and possible consequences of non-compliance.
In July, we significantly improved our Clip management process, including enhanced worker/Clip search functionality, an “Activity Feed” to easily track assignment, and the ability to create new worker profiles on the spot. These seemingly minor changes give system administrators and users the information they need, when and where they need it, without having to navigate back or jump to a new page.
Finally, one of our latest – and greatest – updates enables users to choose and organize which metrics they would like to see when they log into the dashboard, the first step in further dashboard customization. (Get a sneak peek of the new and improved dashboard here.)
