Alltel Wireless has made available TimecardGPS, a new application which lets users track an employee's location, record shift time and capture job or work-order information from phones equipped with location-based services (LBS) technology. Supervisors can request field workers' locations, track movements and set up "smart fences" to determine employee location. They can clock employees in and out, as well as capture individual task information on a single wireless device. Real-time tracking capability sends job information from field workers to employers, complete with tasks, subtasks and editable fields. Customized reports offer information on payroll, job costing and productivity. Web login provides real-time access to field workers' positions, timesheets and job information via the internet. TimecardGPS provides supervisors with instant information on an employee's precise location and job-completion data, Alltel said.
