We all know that Global Positioning System (GPS) is a navigation system renders location and time information in all weather conditions. Since the inception of GPS, it has become a great enabler for many businesses to provide services. The purpose of the GPS technology is to locate the device/vehicle/person at any point of time regardless of weather conditions. This is instrumental in real-time communication and registering Geo location.
In this post we would like to address, how GPS is impacting the businesses to push the limits of possibilities and solving the problems of modern society.
Technology is driving the businesses in a most advanced way possible. The sheer number of business opportunities are being created and driven by GPS technology, which acts as a core of the technology product/service. These businesses are based primarily on location based. GPS negates the location constraint and acts as enabler of the services that are solving the customer problems. We can take an example of local cab services which are rendering services based on GPS technology. This is solving real pain of the customers for local travel regardless of time and location they reside. Basically this service helps customers to travel within city or to other cities as well. This system needs application to be installed in mobile device to detect the location through GPS.
GPS is connecting virtual world in the software applications. A person with GPS system in his/her Smartphone or the technology devices can be connected to the GPS receiver system and observe the updates of that person in real-time, how great is this offer. In case of remote employee who is working in the most uncommunicative place and still system can track his activity and enable the communication with him in real-time. So virtually you can be anywhere in the world and still be connected in the real-time.
GPS enables you to have accurate tracking system for transportation system. It automatically collects vehicle location and sends data to receiver system. This will help to check the proper modulation for fleet management and control your vehicles. This alone lets to have communication with drivers and create work orders and create alert system as per your requirement. And in case of stolen vehicle, recovery can be done with GPS tracking. So GPS is helping transportation in many ways. Now we can never imagine not having GPS system for our tracking system.
Biggest worry for managing field employees is their time and attendance. It’s always a challenging to monitor accurate time and work schedules. However GPS system has greatly reduced most of the obstacles in the traditional workforce management. Employees can use time and attendance tracking system in their mobile and eliminate the cumbersome processes. They can use clock-in and clock-out as per their flexible work, just through mobile touch. Employers are now can monitor employees through mobile tracking system for their attendance, task management without any hassle. Now field workforce management is easier than never before with the technology advancement.
Bottom line: GPS has unleashed solution to many problems related to location and time constraint and impressively enhanced many businesses with technological integration. Attractive feature of GPS is its cost, it is very low cost as compared to other navigation systems and also it has 100% coverage across the planet. Hope we still gear up to utilize GPS technology for solving location and time constraint related problems to make the human life much better.
