GpsGate

According to the GPSGate official website, now mobile employees can:

  • offer end customers to sign on glass to confirm receipt of a delivery;
  • upload video of current conditions on job sites;
  • attach before & after photos of completed jobs;
  • and even upload audio to record a walk-through or narrate job details.

Navixy

As far as Navixy GPS tracking platform has already filled up its work order management app with advanced functionality, the company decided to reimagine the design. The interface of the Tasks app has become more ergonomic and intuitive. One button for creating tasks and importing a list of existing ones. Create single and route tasks at the same window. Add checkpoints to the tasks. Drag and drop them to change the route, etc.

More intuitive design will allow to create, assign and manage tasks in a new way. Integrators’ customers will be able to make less clicks, manage only necessary elements on the screen, and experience the cutting edge interface – claims the developer.
