@Road, a US based Nasdaq-listed company that has products to track mobile resources, plans to launch its tracking solutions in India. Using @Road’s solutions that employ GPS and internet, clients can view schedules of their workforce, balance workloads across available field resources by shifting assignments and modifying dates and time for service. Companies can track service calls on real-time. For instance, if a cable person, who would carry a GPS based device, is supposed to attend a customer call, but is stuck in a traffic jam, the company can immediately locate another person available in the vicinity and ask him to attend the call. Using the @Road mapping capabilities, the client administrators can locate and dispatch the nearest driver to a call as it is received. @Road can provide such services to telecom, cable, utilities, transportation and facilities/waste management and construction companies.
