Hosted on Amazon Cloud Servers, the app uses mobile, social and cloud technologies to keep all team members aware of issues and engage in solving them in real time. The app captures both form-based and multimedia data and can organize the information in central dashboards, analytics and reports.

When a user sees an issue, they can use the Scoop app to fill out the customized form or checklist, add photos or videos from the field and then notify the right people who need to be involved.
