Scale on demand
Using Google Maps Coordinate is as easy as using Google Maps. Your workforce will be up and running in no time with minimal training required.
Your central dispatch team can instantly see all workers on a map, making it easy to select the best worker for each job.
No special hardware required
Google Maps Coordinate runs on GPS-equipped Android and Apple smartphones, so field-based workers always have the latest jobs at their fingertips.
Google Maps Coordinate key features
All team members can be seen on a Google Map. By assigning jobs to the nearest worker, more tasks can be completed in a shorter amount of time and workers are colour-coded so it is obvious who is available. Administrators can dispatch jobs with the confidence that an individual's location is correct, even if they are indoors since Google Maps Coordinate integrates Google Indoor Maps.
Workers can see a list of their jobs, and check in to show that they have started. This reduces miscommunication between the worker and dispatcher. Workers are able to minimise down time between tasks and complete a higher number of jobs per day.
Using their mobile device, workers can view detailed information about the job, as well as add their own notes which are stored immediately in the cloud. This eliminates paper-based workflows, duplication of work and saves teams from losing information.
A customised location enables you to name locations on a map such as customer sites, the location of facilities or areas to avoid. It enables the dispatcher to pinpoint the exact location of the job and saves time when the location is used again since the name is saved and auto-completes.
Job and Location History
The location history of each worker can be shown, which helps to make more informed decisions about how teams operate and improve the efficiency of the mobile workforce. Do more workers need to be hired? Is there a better location for the team?
