Google Coordinate: New Tool to Track Mobile Workers
Google has a new way for you to keep an eye on your employees.
The search giant is entering the market of location-based apps and services with the launch of Google Maps Coordinate, which the company calls “a workforce management tool that improves the efficiency of your mobile teams.”
The service, announced Thursday, combines Google’s mapping and geolocation services and APIs with an enhanced dispatch service to help businesses dispatch and track mobile employees. A Google spokesperson said the company hopes togive businesses with on-the-go employees—think delivery services, perhaps, or a repair team—the tools to assign jobs and deploy staff more effectively.
