Subscribers to the Pro account can organise users in to areas and depots. This functionality aids filtering and reporting for field operators using the C.A.T Manager Online functionality.

NOTE: This functionality is only for the Pro account. For more information on how to subscribe contact your local Radiodetection sales representative or write to us at

This functionality is available for the company's main user and administrators. 

If available, you will be able to define 1 or more areas, and for each areas define 1 or more depots. 

Navigate to Account Management ► Company Areas & Depots
