Knowing what’s going on with your vehicles and employees in the field allows you to stay productive and get more jobs done
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
A pair of mobile-device apps is being offered by Fleetistics to provide fleet operators and employees the tools they need stay connected anywhere through the use of their web-enabled phones or tablets.
While office and field operations typically perform very different functions, they are both working toward the same goal, and the more easily they can communicate, the easier achieving that goal becomes. These apps were developed to facilitate this communication, easing the flow of information so that everyone can perform their job more efficiently, increasing overall productivity.
For employees that don’t “check in” every day, the app can function as a time clock with its ability to record when employees start, take a break from, and stop working. Fleet managers can set up alerts that will notify them of late clock-ins or early clock-outs, and get time clock summaries for a particular employee or their entire fleet.
Sharing job information with employees in the field is also easier. Field workers can get detailed information about each job, and view them on a map, making route planning easy and efficient. Job status can also be updated on the fly, then relayed back to dispatchers, allowing more accurate prediction of on-site arrival times.
The apps also keep fleet managers informed about the vehicles themselves. Drivers can use the app to assign themselves to company vehicles, which is important when vehicles are shared among a pool of drivers, and keeps managers on top of vehicle-driver pairing. If an employee notices an issue with a vehicle, they can report it using the app, so that it can be taken care of sooner rather than later, potentially avoiding costly repairs.
“Knowing what’s going on with your vehicles and employees in the field allows you to stay productive and get more jobs done,” said Eron Iler, President of Fleetistics.
