Definition and general topic glossary giving a brief overview of common industry, operational, compliance questions.

What are electronic work orders?

Electronic work orders store jobs electronically, including giving users the ability to assign jobs, dispatch, capture completed job signatures, and more. Electronic work orders help to facilitate assignments for mobile workers, so the job is completed by the correct worker and in a timely fashion. Also known as digital work orders, they also allow companies to assign jobs via most mobile tools, preventing confusion of the workflow and avoiding the clutter of paperwork with a single seamless system. 

What is GPS? (And what is GPS tracking?)

GPS stands for “global positioning system”. Real-time location data is received via satellite, providing turn-by-turn positioning, so that fleets can more efficiently monitor, manage, and dispatch their workers.

When it comes to telematics, GPS is particularly crucial for providing on-the-spot location data, navigation, and driver monitoring for those who manage fleets in the construction, food distribution, heavy equipment rental, and oil & gas industries.

What is asset tracking?

Asset tracking captures real-time GPS data and other crucial details including the location, movement, or general use of high-valued vehicles, equipment, and other assets in order to better improve security and daily operations.

It provides valuable insights that allow businesses to streamline their operations by preventing loss and theft, and improving day-to-day fleet efficiency by better utilizing the assets and staff they already have.
