Sprint Launches Precision Locator
Posted on 24-Aug-2005 00:40 | Tags Filed under: News



Sprint is launching the Sprint Precision Locator to help small and large businesses track fleets and mobile workers. The service provides a tool for dispatchers or supervisors who are monitoring a mobile workforce of a small or large company by allowing them to access interactive maps with full panning and zooming capabilities to locate a worker or group of workers without interrupting field productivity.

By using the service these dispatchers can set schedules and have the application identify the location of a mobile device or group of mobile devices to ensure specific tasks are performed at designated times, create landmarks on maps that are important to the business, such as offices and warehouses, and track if an employee leaves or enters established landmarks and use text messaging (SMS) to reach a mobile worker or group of workers.

Companies have access to the new service through a password-protected Web-based application.

Included in the monthly fee (per user), it is possible to locate each mobile device up to 1,000 times per month, determine if a device is on or off up to 100 times per month and send up to 50 SMS messages from the application to a mobile worker per month.

This location tool combines Sprint Business Mobility Framework capabilities with the application development from WaveMarket and Microsoft MapPoint Web Service, an open-standards-based development platform for creating mapping and location-aware applications and services.
