Increasing Accountability with Field Employee Tracking App


Field employee accountability is a controversial issue. While subordinates might feel that they are losing some of their freedom with extra supervision, on the other hand, management has a legal obligation to track their hours as well as activities.

A field employee tracking app can be extremely beneficial to both sides of the employment relationship. With such app installed on staff's mobile devices, management can automatically view their whereabouts during the workday, with minimal input from them.

Additionally, with a field employee tracking app managers will have automatic access to customer calls and route information through spreadsheet and map reports, meaning that they can stop continuously trying to reach their subordinates to learn about their activities - or expecting their calls. This alone can have a profound impact on employee accountability since they will stop feeling that their boss is "nagging" them for information every step of the way while making a better job of letting managers know details of their team's activities.

VisitEye is an easy-to-implement field employee tracking app that offers, besides the benefits listed above, visit scheduling, route planning, on-the-go access to customer information, photo reports, and more, at an affordable price. The VisitEye mobile app is available as a free download both for Apple and Android devices, allowing workers to use their own smartphones or tablets.
