In response to frequent requests for a method to track remote workers who don't work in a vehicle or who are frequently out of their vehicles, Track Star has developed a tracking app for Android smartphones for use with the Track Star AVLS System. The tracking app works on any Android smartphone and transmits location data from the phone to the AVLS system. A work-hours scheduling function, when enabled, allows the transmission of GPS location data from the smartphone to occur during specified work hours only.
This smartphone personnel tracking app also provides the user with a panic button feature. Pressing the button transmits an immediate message to the Track Star AVLS system, alerting the system user to the location of the worker and the fact that they need help.
While the GPS tracking app will operate on any Android-equipped smartphone, it contains features that are specific to the Sonim XP7 ruggedized smartphone. The XP7 is designed to operate in the work environment with ruggedized features and a large battery, among many other attributes. The XP7 also has a physical panic button that is tied to the Track Star Android app so that it can be used, in additon to the screen button, to send an immediate call for help. Versions are available for the FirstNet public safety network, as well as an intrinsically safe model. Please visit the Sonim Website to learn more about this product.
The Track Star Android Tracking App provides employers with a means to enhance the safety and efficiency of field workers. It is an ideal complement to the Track Star AVLS system. You can find a datasheet for this product to the right, in the box entitled "Additional Documents."
