Workforce Management

In addition to locating and alerting, Vismo can also be used in a workforce management scenario using Check-in/Check-out functions. Administrators can define list of actions e.g. “arrived at site”, “started job”, “work suspended”, “left site” that can be downloaded to specific devices. Members of the workforce then select the relevant action at the time and Vismo ensures that an immediate location is found and confirms to the user that the action has been recognised and sent back to the site. Often used to monitor time-on-site for remote sales staff, this feature provides a lightweight option to validating attendance.
