Jobber launches live GPS tracking of vehicles

December 13, 2019 -  By

Jobber released an integration with FleetSharp GPS that will allow its customers to further optimize field operations with live GPS tracking.

With the easy-to-use scheduling map in Jobber, customers can now easily track the real-time location of vehicles equipped with FleetSharp’s SIM card-based vehicle trackers. By knowing exactly where vehicles are, home service businesses can improve field operations through more efficient dispatching, smarter scheduling and quicker response times for emergency requests, according to the company. Insights into driver behavior and vehicle conditions also provide the opportunity to improve crew safety and reduce operating costs by boosting fuel efficiency.

“Being able to check on the progress of crews without disrupting their days or killing their phone batteries is a game-changer for busy business owners,” said Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber. “This feature, which leverages FleetSharp’s cutting-edge technology, allows decisions to be made quicker and smarter, leading to better customer service, more jobs and more revenue. Live GPS tracking is yet another way that Jobber is providing the ultimate command center for small home service businesses looking to scale.”

FleetSharp’s vehicle trackers utilize vehicle SIM cards, providing true real-time location updates that don’t rely on smart devices. Continuous location sharing makes sure every part of the day is accounted for and billable. Through FleetSharp’s web management system and free mobile app for Android and iOS, users also have access to route replay, idle time tracking, driver behavior reports, geofencing, fuel mileage and various alerts.

Live GPS tracking is currently available for U.S. customers today, with a Canadawide rollout expected in Spring 2020. The feature is available through Jobber’s Connect and Grow plans and requires a physical tracker and subscription to FleetSharp. Jobber customers qualify for a preferred rate on FleetSharp tracking devices.
