FileTrac is no longer supporting the FileTrac App as it has been replaced with an interface scaled for smart phone screens. Rather than using an app on your phone, you can connect directly to your company's FileTrac system by simply logging into your account(s) on your mobile device.
Through the 'Mobile Access' interface, you will be able to update claim notes, upload photos, make time log entries, and access the quick update claim data fields.
