"Tradetraks has completely transformed how we manage our HVAC projects. The platform allows me to work remotely, track every job and labor hour in real-time, and ensure compliance with all necessary regulations. Best of all, I can control my business from anywhere." 

Justin Hay, Owner | Northern Clean Energy




"We knew we were losing time because hours paid and billed didn’t match up, same with materials. We couldn’t pinpoint which jobs or tasks. The clock in and clock out feature has improved our billable hours by 16 hours per month per technician (about 10%). Tradetraks is a tremendous tool for improving margins quickly. The ROI is amazing!"

Andrew William, Owner NexGen Electric
