GeoOp: Easy to Use, Cost-Effective Tools for Mobile Workforce Management
While efficient planning helps a business take off, it is smooth execution that decides its success and probability to obtain profits. And to ensure that, a business needs to focus on carrying out its operations efficiently so that it can skip on the possibilities of incurring losses and optimize its resources. Complete visibility of every business function, especially their employees is of prime importance. That is where GeoOp steps in with a set of productivity tools that do not only keep track of where people are and what they are doing, but also help to easily reschedule activities and inform all those concerned.
GeoOp, known as GEO came as an aide for businesses that had mobile workforce and needed solutions to address the challenges involved in managing it. “It all began in 2009 as a single app that allowed mobile businesses to allocate jobs and connect with employees via their mobile devices. At the time, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) revolution had just begun. Aligning with the trend, GEO provided effective and easy-to-use cloud based technology for a low monthly fee and integrations with other leading business software,” elaborates Dr. Anna Cicognani, CEO & MD, GeoOp. Over the years GEO and its solutions have evolved and at present, offer features and integrations that help its clients gain efficiency and productivity. GEO’s product portfolio includes its two key platforms, GeoServices and GeoSales.
