New app to store your trade papers

SYDNEY-based start-up TradePapers has launched its Android and iOS application for blue-collar and industrial workers to keep their qualifications in one accessible cloud-based location.

The app is the first of its kind combining both a document-sharing platform and a reminder system that can let users and their employers know when tickets are coming up for renewal. TradePapers co-founder Amy Athar, who grew up working in her family's road transport business, has seen the need for the TradePapers app for years.

"My husband, who works in industrial recruitment and also had some background in the transport industry, also recognised the gap in the market for a cloud-based solution that workers could access and share using their smartphones," she said.

"TradePapers allows the workers to have their qualifications accessible at all times so they can be easily shared and reminded of renewal terms."

TradePapers is available on all iOS and Android mobile devices for $2.99 for up to 10 documents, with the option to purchase more as required. A premium version will be released.
