A new smart phone application from Omnitracs allows companies to track drivers’ movements, helping employees be “safer and more productive,” according to the technology company.
Omnitracs Tracking can pinpoint a driver’s location in real time using the phone’s GPS, street maps and satellites. The app also can monitor a driver’s speed and captures performance data for the company.
Fleet managers can access a driver’s location and speed through a website, allowing them to give real-time updates to customers, according to Omnitracs.
“Every transportation company with a mobile workforce wants to know the location and key behaviors of their drivers,” Chief Technology Officer Dan Speicher said in a statement.
“Omnitracs Tracking powered by Roadnet enables companies that have not adopted a fully featured mobile fleet-management solution to utilize their existing smart devices in order to track locations of mobile workers, improving safety, productivity and customer satisfaction,” Speicher said.
