This level of location management is far more effective than simply seeing your employees’ locations. With alerts and timestamps, you’re able to create complete snapshots of each employee’s work day. Having this data gives you greater insight into where your employees are spending the most time. Once you have this snapshot, you’ll be able to dig deeper into the reasons for inefficiencies and establish better systems.
For example, you may discover that one employee frequently arrives late to his or her first stop or takes an unexpectedly long time to get from one job to another. Disciplining an employee without understanding their situation may not help resolve the issue, but having detailed location data will allow you to examine the situation more closely. Utilizing a GPS tracking system may help you determine that the designated route for that employee follows a school bus route or a road that is notoriously slow during rush hour. Creating a more efficient work environment starts with understanding the specific challenges employees are facing.
