User Activity Tracking Tracks specific activity of individual workers throughout the work day. It can be used in environments where customers need to track the activity of drivers or plant workers such as trip activity, equipment inspection activity, customer arrival and departure times, post-trip equipment inspection, load checks, and lunch breaks. This module replaces the need for time-consuming manual creation of paper-based special activity reports.

Why Track Mobile Workers

  • You have many mobile workers to manage
  • Many workers are unsupervised
  • A lot of your costs are in peoples’ time
  • You want to maximize the efficiency of your people
  • You should identify customers that eat up your time

Data Collection

TrackAbout software allows the buttons to be added and have customized names such as the Trip Report button added in this example.

The menu options change throughout the day depending on what user activity is initiated.
