Trimble Enhances Mobile Suite for Fleet Supervisors

FieldMaster Supervisor app TrimbleGlobal location tech company Trimble has added a Supervisor app to its FieldMaster suite of mobile apps that aim to deliver a new level of enterprise intelligence to logistics and field service firms.

The Supervisor app is designed to help managers stay efficient and effective on the go, empowering them to do more work in the field and manage their day-to-day operations remotely, maintaining visibility with their fleet and mobile workers from their smartphone or tablet.

“Mobile is an increasingly valuable tool for field service organisations,” said John Cameron, general manager of the field service management division at Trimble. “It allows a traditional office role to move into the field and still access up-to-date information about the performance of the field operation. The result is a more effective operation where managers in the field have the information they need at their fingertips.”

The Supervisor app pairs with the companys existing suite of mobile apps to enable users to view the locations of their entire team on a map, monitor job progress for each team member, navigate to key locations with turn-by-turn directions, receive vehicle and driver performance alerts in real-time and inspect job performance and documenting status in the field.

“Im often meeting with customers or surveying a job so its important for me to know my technicians location,” said Dave Rowan, manager of Del-Mar Doors. “I can open the app and see where my team is, where theyve been and how long theyve been at each location. Having quick access to this information has improved my efficiency and productivity.”
