Enhanced Geofencing adds rich context to field activities, automates time & attendance, adds precision to job costing, and improves field data collection.
Abaqus Inc., a provider of the first-of-a-kind cloud-hosted mobile workforce management and transportation logistics platform announced enhancements to its Geofencing & Field-Events Rules Engine. Geofences, also known as geozones, are virtual perimeters around a predefined area of interest, like warehouses, construction sites, or live customer project sites. When combined with real-time GPS information from an employee’s phone and allGeo’s powerful IF-This-Then-That (IFTTT) rules engine, companies can dramatically reduce their manual processes and automate their field operations workflow with capabilities such as always-on resource monitoring, job site record keeping, field data collection and exceptions based real-time alerts.
“allGeo's platform, including its geofencing technology, has drastically improved the management of mobile resources across our national footprint," said Felipe Padilla, Operations Manager, Siboney Contracting. "Along with great tracking records, their tech support has been exceptional.”
"Our innovative new geofencing feature delivers an intelligent solution that makes it easy to provide the much needed 'context' for our Customers’ day-to-day workforce management requirements," said Shailendra Jain, CEO of Abaqus, Inc. “This means that an employee or asset is not just detected and logged at a geofenced jobsite or point of interest, but the context -- the time of day, the site details, the employee’s job status and other data-collection events can trigger a customized set of workflow and exception alerts.”
The scalable allGeo (previously known as myGeoTracking) platform can rapidly provision tens of thousands of geofenced job sites and perform calculations to detect arrival/departure, delays, optimize travel routes among various sites, and automate entire workflow with a rich rules engine. The system also gathers critical data that can be used for payroll, time & attendance, resource optimization and business analytics for a variety of service industries, such as:
