Google has quietly released an app for Coordinate – a mobile workforce management tool that improves the efficiency of mobile teams.
Google had launched Coordinate for business users in June 2012. It allows employees to share real-time location and collect information while on the field and allows dispatchers back in the office to create teams, manage jobs and get access to historical data to help them make informed business decisions.
The iPhone app allows employees to:
Share real-time location. Employees are increasingly on the move in today’s business environment. Google Coordinate enables easy collaboration by enabling businesses to leverage real-time location sharing in just a few clicks.
Manage jobs. Your business has lots to do every day. Google Coordinate makes it easy to capture all the information needed for a job and to assign them to your team members with instant notifications.
Collect data. Mobile teams often need to collect information while out in the field. Google Coordinate allows the admin to customize the fields that the mobile team needs to capture and collect – from measurements to client contact details – directly in the app.
The free iPhone app (iTunes link) is available only to business users who have a Google Coordinate license. Google is currently offering it for an introductory price of $15 per user per month.
