The Challenge

Year after year, they encountered problems collecting data using the MS Access database.

Originally, TDEC managed its Annual Progress Report that county governments are required to report using a custom-built MS Access database. Each year, a new version of the database needed to be created and mailed to reporting entities to be completed and mailed back.

Year after year, they encountered problems collecting data using the MS Access database. They would spend months trying to resolve database environment issues and usually ended up appending the regions’ responses to the main database.

The Solution

Frustrated with the error-prone MS Access database, TDEC set out to find a web-based solution that reliably reduced errors and offered automated analytics. Thoroughly convinced that the data management and reporting features exceeded their expectations, TDEC’s program administrators adopted Re‑TRAC Connect™ as its official reporting system.

TDEC launched its Annual Progress Report in Re‑TRAC’s original system in 2007. This allowed TDEC to deliver a consistent report directly to their stakeholders. TDEC was pleased to learn that the Re‑TRAC Connect is available 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world and system updates and enhancements are free and instantly available.

The Results

Re‑TRAC’s intuitive interface and powerful reporting features provided further indirect cost-savings by reducing time needed for data review.

Before Re‑TRAC, managing TDEC’s Annual Progress Report was very time consuming and rife with errors. In its first year using Re‑TRAC Connect, and each year afterwards, TDEC experienced $70,000 in direct savings collecting data for their Annual Progress Report. Re‑TRAC’s intuitive interface and powerful reporting features provided further indirect costs by saving time needed for data review. Finally, TDEC eliminated 26,000 paper manifests by moving to an electronic tire manifesting system in Re‑TRAC Connect.
