There are various companies, businesses, institutions and organizations which are having majority of employees working on field to perform various activities like sales, survey, service, door step delivery, data collection, marketing etc. These field forces travel location to location every day to perform allotted tasks. It has become a herculean task for any manager to be aware of each and every activity in real time without disturbing the productivity of employees. Continuous chasing on calls and endless chat groups will make it even more tiring and inefficient. Finally, companies hire more managers to organize work which increases the cost and reduces optimization.
