Managing Multiple Worksites
A Solution for Caleb
Caleb is the project manager for a growing commercial construction company in a major metro area. In addition to his existing projects, Caleb will add a mulit-site construction contract for regional expansion of a national franchise. The distance between job sites will increase, and the impact of traffic will make it impossible to bounce around or make last minute trips. Caleb is responsible for reporting project details to his company's client on a daily basis.
Caleb’s current projects have been taxing his time management with the locations being scattered around the city, especially in a post-Covid world in which being shorthanded is standard operating procedure. He needs more visibility into his job sites, and he needs it in a simplified form. Currently, his only options are to call each site supervisor to get updates on staffing, equipment, and progress, or show up in person to gather the information. With phone calls there is no guarantee the time is good for both parties and creates a lot of “chasing” each other down. All of this wastes time and is inefficient. Caleb needs a way to quickly separate all of his daily operating data according to job site.
Groups Feature in GSatTrack
Grouping and Subgrouping assets is a method many asset managers use to simplify the map UI, provide visibility to internal and external teams, and pull pertinent reports from narrowed data sets. Groups are sorting containers that ensure ease of use for organizations with extensive Asset ecosystems. Groups can contain any number of Assets, and Assets can belong to any number of Groups. In the List Panel, Groups display as top level folders with Assets inside of them. Groups can also be nested within one another to provide multi-layer sorting.
Caleb's Missing Piece
Caleb has his team and all of his tracked Assets assigned to Groups labeled with each job site ID. At the end of the day, he can quickly cycle through the views to confirm equipment is positioned as needed for the next day. At the start of each day he can confirm teams are on site and know the working capacity. Any job site shorthanded is easily recognized, and he is able to make quick decisions on how to adjust his teams. With his job sites organized in Groups, he can start building automated Alerts and automated Reports as well.
