Make the sustainable choice

The WesTrac Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S™) program is a mutual commitment to keep your equipment operating at the peak of its performance. As part of this commitment, we are helping you get even more out of your S•O•S experience with paperless sampling.

Paperless sampling is a new, digital way of processing your oil sample with the WesTrac Laboratory in WA.

From February 2022, you’ll start to notice that your S•O•S sampling bottles feature QR codes. As soon as you begin to receive these new bottles, you can start paperless sampling!

If you prefer to sample using the paper-based method, don’t worry, this will still be available to you and there will be no changes to this process.

With paperless sampling you’ll benefit from:

  • Less paper clutter, improving your environmental impact.
  • An easy and new sampling process that gives near instant access to your sample results.
  • Flexibility to conduct your paperless sampling using Cat® S•O•S Web or Cat Inspect.
  • More functionality and integration with VisionLink.
  • Advanced search capabilities.
  • Easy fleet data comparison.

Make your S•O•S experience easy and choose paperless today.

See below for instructions on how to start paperless sampling with Cat S•O•S Web or the Cat Inspect mobile app. We also have live tutorials available for you to attend.
