5 Reasons to Add GPS Tracking to your Enterprise Mobility App
If you add GPS Tracking to your Enterprise Mobility App your team can derive valuable real-time insight into the location and status of your field workers. Weather your routes are fixed or change daily such knowledge can strengthen your organization allowing quicker response times to customer requests and changing conditions in the field. As well as addressing efficiencies around in field costs of labour fuel and the vehicle itself.
In the last few years we have seen ever more integration of GPS into mobile technology. If you are still catching up with the technology this is a great primer.
By building Google Map based tracking right into the mobile application development process allows us to provide you with even more enterprise mobile functionality such as:
1. Increase Productivity and Efficiency
Add more jobs to the work day by ensuring that employees are operating efficiently. Workers who know they are being monitored will follow guidelines and take more direct routes to jobs/stops. Correct mobile worker inefficiencies by being able to offer better coaching of their travel. Generate reports on driver activity.
2. Improve Customer Service
Respond instantly to customer questions and requests. Use GPS tracking to see every mobile worker on a single map and route the nearest worker to job sites. Resolve customer disputes related to arrival time service duration and service location.
3. Lower Costs
Tracking employee movement in the field prevents excessive idling and personal use of company assets while making sure workers stick to pre-determined routes. Workers who know they are being monitored tend to change their work patterns to fit agreed guidelines.
4. Enhance Safety & Security
Track unsafe habits, instantly locate field workers and send help if they are stranded or in trouble. Receive automated alerts when workers violate safety and/or security policies.
5. Liability Protection & Theft Recovery
Have real time knowledge of your entire workforce location. Eliminate non-work related stops, track and remotely operate lost or stolen devices to assist the police in recovery of stolen devices.
Deciding to add GPS Tracking to your Enterprise Mobility is a great way to further enhance an enterprise mobility deployment.
If you would like to augment an app you already have we have a number of GPS peripherals that can help you re-boot your existing installation and get some productivity gains.
