Google has launched a new cloud-based service to improve the management of mobile workers out in the field.
The Maps Coordinate service lets fleet managers track employee movements and allocate tasks to them based on their locations. Orders are given to workers through an app on an Android smartphone or tablet.
Product manager, Daniel Chu, said the tool was designed to improve communication between businesses and their field workers.
“As the number of mobile employees continues to grow, so does the need for a location sharing solution that works in real-time,” he said.
