CENTENNIAL, Colorado – CompassCom Software, developers of industry-leading Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solutions, will release CompassTracker for iOS and Windows Mobile at the 2017 Esri User Conference. The CompassTracker App enables organizations using the CompassCom MRM solution to track their field personnel in real time within the same Esri ArcGIS environment where they track vehicles, IoT sensors, and other high-value assets.
“The new CompassTracker Apps significantly enhance the safety and efficiency of field personnel carrying their smart phones,” said CompassCom CEO Brant Howard. “The App is now available for use on all Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.”
Released earlier for Android smartphones, the CompassTracker App downloads easily to any iOS, Android or Windows Mobile device. The App uses the GPS in the wireless device to transmit periodic smart phone location and status reports to the CompassCom MRM system which displays the information on a live digital map.
CompassCom MRM solutions empower desktop, tablet and smartphone users to have full situational awareness. These solutions are used widely by public works, public safety, DOT, utility and local government agencies to manage and dispatch vehicles fleets and field personnel.
“With the CompassTracker App, organizations can leverage many of the analytic functions within the CompassCom MRM system to enhance the performance and accountability of their field crews,” said Howard. “By monitoring the movement of people, vehicles and other assets, organizations improve their overall operational efficiency as well as personnel productivity.”
CompassTracker also enables organizations to enact a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policy which saves money by allowing them to track personnel on the smart phones they already carry instead of buying mobile devices and additional data plans for them.
CompassCom will demonstrate the CompassTracker App, along with the enhanced CompassTrac Enterprise 7.1 MRM system, in booth #2218 at the Esri User Conference being held July 11-13 at the San Diego Convention Center.
