07 Aug Using GPS Tracking to Improve your Workforce
When most people think about GPS tracking their thoughts turn to fleet vehicles and packages. The reality is that we’re only just discovering all the different ways a high-quality GPS tracking system improves a business’s bottom line. Just like the GPS tracking service helps you monitor your fleet of commercial vehicles, it can also help you improve the overall efficiency of your workforce.
There are several different ways you can use a GPS tracking system to improve your workforce.
Track How Employees Use Their Time
In the past, employers could only really monitor when their employees clocked in and clocked out. GPS tracking changes that. The tracking system lets you see what tasks take your employees a long time to complete, which co-workers they work best with, and where/when times seems to get away from them. Once you’ve collected this data, you can use it to accurately assess how long it will take to complete specific tasks, something that’s extremely useful when you’re trying to put a schedule together, which employees should be scheduled to work together, and even what tasks/skills a particular employee excels at.
Improve Employee Coordination
No matter how well you think you’ve planned the day’s schedule, there always seems to be times when one employee is swamped while others are in a completely different area with nothing to do. GPS tracking makes resolving this issue easy. All you have to do is look at the map that contains each employee’s current location, identify who has some spare time, and send them to assist the overwhelmed employee. Retail businesses have found this particularly useful.
Improved Employee Safety
Many businesses have started issuing GPS trackers with alert buttons to their employees. This has significantly improved employee safety while helping reduce insurance claims. If the employee gets hurt or feels threatened, all they have to do is tap the alert button and you can send the calvary to the rescue. This has been a major asset to businesses that have employees scattered at different locations and working in large warehouses.
When all is said and done, most businesses owners report that the GPS tracking service quickly pays for itself and even starts helping improve their profit margins.
