LAS VEGAS – The newest feature for Telogis Fleet extends the vehicle management system’s reach to the breaking down of field supervisors’ daily routines.
Introduced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011, the GPS-based Field Management Co-Location Module tracks such parameters as time spent at a jobsite, time spent driving, vehicle miles and time spent at other locations.
“Jobsite productivity and safety improve exponentially when a foreman or supervisor is on site,” explains Jason Koch, president, Telogis Fleet. “This feature is designed to encourage more time spent on site, raise the accountability of field management, and improve productivity and safety. It was designed specifically for our utility enterprise customers, but is useful in any industry where one foreman or supervisor oversees numerous mobile resources.”
Field Management Co-Location uses GPS to determine when a foreman or supervisor’s truck is located on a jobsite or other location related to the job, such as a maintenance shop or depot. The report compares when the vehicle is specifically “co-located” at a jobsite with other field resources to determine the total amount of time spent on site.
Furthermore, a concise report is compiled over a customizable time period that shows each supervisor’s daily routine, allowing management to make decisions about how field resources are deployed and supervised.
Working on the location intelligence of parent company Telogis of Aliso Viejo, California, Telogis Fleet is a real-time GPS fleet management solution serving a range of industries, including construction, utilities, telecommunications, fleet leasing and waste management.
