Jobber, Edmonton, Alberta, a provider of home service management software, announced 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. 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,” says 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 mission is to simplify the complicated in GPS tracking, which pairs perfectly with Jobber’s platform for managing service businesses,” says John McCammond, VP, partnerships and channel development.

FleetSharp’s vehicle trackers utilize vehicle SIM cards, providing true real-time location updates that don’t rely on smart devices. This offers a significant advantage as managers can know where their teams are without draining their crews’ phone batteries or intruding on their privacy. 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, with a Canada-wide roll out 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. For more information, visit getjobber.com/fleetsharp
