App to Manage a Mobile Workforce

Extracted 03AUG2011 from

A third-party mobile app available on AT&T devices, including multiple BlackBerry, Motorola, HTC and Samsung smartphones, called TeleNav Track promises to provide even small businesses some fresh options for managing a mobile workforce.

TeleNav Track is a location-based service that runs as an app on employee smartphones and is administered by a manager from a browser-based Web tool. Simply put, in addition to other features like time tracking and fleet logistics, TeleNav Track will tell you where your employees are, where they’ve been and where they should be next. The goal is to make businesses more efficient through smarter dispatching, which should hopefully mean faster driving routes, better customer service and fuel savings.
