Everyone wants GPS. But if it’s not integrated into your business’ day-to-day software solution, you’re wasting a lot of time and losing insights by managing multiple software platforms.
St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) November 16, 2015
HindSite Software, the leading provider of field service software to the green industry, today announced the release of HindSite Tracker, a field service GPS tracking solution designed to help field service businesses track the daily activity of their crews. The solution helps businesses save time and money by providing peace of mind that their business is operating safely and efficiently.
HindSite Tracker is powered by OneView™ by Pedigree Technologies, a leading provider of mobile resource management solutions. The core of the solution is an inexpensive, easy-to-install tracking device. The device, which can be installed in less than 10 seconds by simply plugging into a vehicle’s OBD II port, uses wireless signals to pinpoint a location, sending that data back to HindSite’s field service software solution every few minutes.
“When we looked at potential GPS partners, we wanted a partner with great technology that’s plug and play,” explained David Crary, HindSite’s President. “We found that with Pedigree Technologies. We’ve just scratched the surface with what we can do with their technology platform and their devices install in seconds. It’s really a great solution for our typical customer, a small to mid-sized, green industry business.”
The solution is tightly integrated with HindSite’s field service software solution, enabling customers to not only see their trucks on a map, but also see all of the day’s appointments. Plus, customers can see a complete truck history, so they know if and when their workers travelled the “scenic” route to a job or took a long lunch.
“GPS is a buzzword in the field service industry,” explains HindSite’s President, David Crary. “Everyone wants GPS. But if it’s not integrated into your business’ day-to-day software solution, you’re wasting a lot of time and losing insights by managing multiple software platforms.”
HindSite Tracker also delivers peace of mind that employees are acting responsibly. By delivering information like travel speed and idle time, HindSite Tracker ensures employees aren’t exceeding posted speeds or wasting gas by idling for hours a day. Even better, if a truck is stolen, authorities can be alerted immediately of that truck’s location.
“We’re not done developing HindSite Tracker,” explains Crary. “Today we’ve built a robust tracking engine, but over time we plan to introduce helpful tools that make it easier for green industry businesses manage their employees and assets. Our goal is to not only deliver tracking information, but also help deliver actionable insight into what’s happening in the field - in real time.”
