GPS Breadcrumb Tracking Employees Is Messy

GPS tracking breadcrumbs

Have you walked into the kitchen after your teenage son made a PB&J sandwich? You'll likely find the countertop littered with breadcrumbs, as I did. While messy breadcrumbs are part of life with teenagers in the house, GPS breadcrumb tracks aren't a good idea in remote employee management. In today's post, we'll explain what breadcrumb tracks are, and while it seems like a great solution - it's actually quite messy.

Do you want to ensure that your employees are always at the job site when clocking in?

What Do GPS Breadcrumb Tracks Really Tell You?

GPS breadcrumb tracking for mobile time clock apps records an employee's location at clock-in and updates the location information throughout the workday. Some of these tracks are accurate, yet some may not be. The employee's time card map will look like a Hansel and Gretel breadcrumb trail. But ask the question - what is this breadcrumb trail telling you? The trail is not answering your most important question - is your employee at the job site or not? This lack of clarity is a manageable headache with a few employees, but what if you have 25, 50, or 100? You don't have time every day, all day, to babysit 100 employees!

50 Random GPS Pin Drops Aren't Very Helpful

Some GPS time clock apps show you a live map of all employees at any moment of the day. Is that truly helpful? For example, let's say you have 50 remote employees who serve 50 job sites. What do you want to know when you pull up a map showing all employees? Of course, you want to know if your employees are at their job sites, not a random splattering of 50 pin drops. That's messy. And it doesn't tell you if your employees are at the job sites. You're left to clean up the mess and figure it out for yourself. You need a more intelligent GPS tracking solution, one that cleans up the mess and tells you what you need to know.

In conclusion, in the world of remote employee management, GPS breadcrumb tracking has emerged as a seemingly promising solution, akin to following a trail of breadcrumbs to monitor employees' movements. However, much like the messy aftermath of a teenager's PB&J sandwich-making escapade, this method often leaves employers sorting through a chaotic jumble of data, lacking the clarity needed to ascertain whether their employees are truly where they should be.

The proliferation of GPS time clock apps has inundated employers with an abundance of location data, but this deluge of information doesn't necessarily translate into actionable insights.
