Trackops, LLC

Trackops is a web-based case management application designed to streamline the process of managing an investigation from start to finish. Running a business is hard enough. We believe today's web applications can play a significant role to making that easier for you. Our mission at Trackops is to provide a secure and easy-to-use investigation management tool that will assist you in becoming more organized, efficient, and profitable with less effort.

Trackops, LLC is a privately held company founded in 2006 out of Boulder, Colorado. Having experience in both the computer and investigative industries, we recognized the demand for online investigation management tools increasing at a rapid pace. We realized we could provide a valuable service to meet that demand, and thus Trackops was born. The investigative industry needed a high quality, professionally built, and all-encompassing solution that would bridge the gap between investigative firms and their employees, vendors and clients. From concept to creation, we've worked hard to turn daily business operations into efficient online activities. Trackops is the result of that hard work, and we believe it can take your business to the next level!

As the industry changes and new technologies emerge, we strive to push the envelope and keep Trackops ahead of the curve. By continually adding new features and enhancements to Trackops, we're able to increase the value of our product, and in turn, the value of your organization.

Trackops is solely a software company, and is not owned by or derived from an investigative company. You can rest assured there is no conflict of interest when entrusting us with your data.
