"GPS has recently become a buzzword in the green industry, but many business owners don't know exactly what they want a GPS solution for."
St. Paul, Minn. (PRWEB) November 22, 2015
HindSite Software, the leading provider of field service software to the green industry, recently published an eBook, GPS and The Green Industry: What it Does, Why you Need it and What it can do For You. The eBook is meant to help green industry business owners understand some of the key reasons why GPS can be helpful to their business. It also compares two of the most popular GPS application styles within the green industry: truck based devices and phone based GPS apps.
“GPS has recently become a buzzword in the green industry,” explained HindSite’s Marketing Specialist, Taylor Tuomie. “But many business owners don’t know exactly what they want a GPS solution for. Some want to track their employees, some want it for vehicle maintenance purposes and others want GPS for routing and scheduling. We created this eBook to dive into this topic and offer more insight into what solution might be the best fit for the green industry business owners.”
Among the information represented in this eBook:
-History of GPS
-Why a field service business might need GPS
-What both truck based GPS devices and phone GPS applications do
-Questions you should ask before buying a GPS solution
The eBook includes an in depth analysis of the benefits and downsides of each form of GPS. Both truck based and phone based solutions can track speed and some driving information, but there are certain functions that business owners might want that one or the other cannot provide.
“While both carry different costs and distinct functions,” explained Tuomie. “GPS can be highly beneficial in either form. What we wanted to produce was a guide for owners considering their options and help them grow their business with this eBook.”
HindSite released their own GPS product called HindSite Tracker on Nov. 16th. The solution integrates tightly with their field service software. Tracker gives users a near real-time view of where their trucks are located, provides a history of each truck’s routes for a single day or date range and provides vital vehicle based information.
