All things fleet tracking – industry news and best practices
Mobile Device Use is Crucial for Construction Professionals
Posted on 03/25/2013 by Adrienne Sallerson | 0 Comments
According to CDW’s 2012 Small Business Mobility Report, nearly 90% of construction professionals use smartphones for work and 20% use tablets. With tremendous advancements in mobile technology, it comes as no surprise that 85% of construction respondents agree that mobile device use is critical to their jobs. Even GPS fleet tracking providers have made significant improvements in the mobile technology arena to help businesses increase efficiency and simplify processes. But how exactly does fleet management and mobile technology benefit those in the construction industry?
Time and Attendance: Workers can record start times, break times and end work times from their smartphones or tablets, helping to validate payroll hours. This is especially ideal for companies with employees that don’t “check in” every day.
Job Information & Schedules: This allows workers to receive detailed job information on their mobile device, helping to eliminate confusion and ensure jobs are completed efficiently.
Vehicle Maintenance Information: Workers can record vehicle problems, maintenance issues and update odometer readings all from their smartphones or tablets, so office personnel can stay in the loop when important vehicle issues arise.
- Vehicle Location: Fleet managers can track and locate vehicles from their mobile device, so they don’t have to be in the office to monitor vehicle and driver activity.
