SnapCharT® Diagram

You can’t understand why something happened before you understand what happened. The SnapCharT® Diagram, a simple drawing tool, helps you organize and understand the evidence you collect and present what you learn to management.

In addition to the SnapCharT® drawing tool, the TapRooT® Software includes the Root Cause Tree® Diagram, Safeguard Analysis, Change Analysis, Critical Human Action Profile, Equifactor® Troubleshooting, and the Corrective Action Helper® Module. All these techniques are integrated into the software to make a simple or a complex investigation a snap!

Incident Data in the Cloud

The TapRooT® VI Software consolidates incidents, audits, investigation, root cause, and corrective action in one convenient database. It also can store other investigation data including images, documents, and procedures so investigators have one central repository of data to create reports. Being stored in the cloud allows easy access and sharing of incident data from a user’s desktop, laptop, tablet, or even a smartphone. You can set up individual users to use our hosted software or you can license our software and host it on your cloud or we can host your company’s site on our cloud – whichever is easiest and most economical for you.


Companies use databases to manage safety, quality, human resources, and other company critical functions. We’ve made it easy to share data with other databases using our API. We can work with your company to connect to your private API as well.

Custom Fields and Reports

You will be amazed how easy it is to customize the software to meet your needs. Add custom fields to the database or custom reports for your investigators to make the software fit your industry and company.


TapRooT® Software does more that facilitate world-class root cause analysis. It also provides management with the data and trends they need to manage safety, quality, and business performance.
