Track Your Field Teams

Field Personnel Tracking

When you have personnel out in the field vehicle GPS hardware installed into vehicles might not be practical. This can make managing field team members challenging when it comes to safety and efficiency.

GPS technology is not just only for the tracking of your vehicles or equipment – monitoring field personnel can be equally vital to your operations. Dedicated hardware and mobile app are available to suit your specific requirements, helping to ensure their safety and accountability while in the field.

All your field personnel covered

With the advancement in technology, many businesses are utilising mobiles and tablets for their external Personnel in the field. Many businesses currently use this technology to run other app-based operational functions. Accordingly, they are moving to integrate tracking into this also, often forgoing dedicated in-vehicle hardware where the personnel are more important to manage.

There are many reasons or needs why your businesses may want to track field personnel, from the simple live tracking and tracing and knowing where they are, to health and safety whether they are in or out of the vehicle.

Personal trackers are an ideal way to track field personnel, elderly or children. Depending on your requirements and what you need to manage or monitor will decide on the device solution chosen.
