How Trackoo app works?

1. Salesperson / Field staff registration and work allocation

  • Define Monthly tour plan
  • Allocation is done on the basis of salesperson / field staff location. Key considerations for this are- zone, state, city and area

  • Complete list of client is auto-filtered in the system and salesperson / field staff is allocated to those clients

  • Staff's location and reporting status is recorded real-time on Google map

  • You can prepare monthly marketing strategy based on the salesperson's tour plan

2. Real-time reporting by salesperson / field staff on each client visit

  • Reporting status is recorder by field staff after login into app

  • In case of meeting to new client, field staff registers the name and real-time location of client into system and enters reporting status

  • Real-time reporting is also done for total transactions made by field staff on each client visit

  • In case of failed visit, salesperson / field staff checks “Failed Visit” check box and its location is also tracked in the system

  • Reporting is done only through mobile app

3. Real-time client registration

  • List of all clients is registered by admin itself

  • New client-registration can be done by salesperson / field staff through mobile app

  • Location of client is tracked real-time in the app through GPS

4. Activity report generation

  • Salesperson / field staff activity report is generated with its corresponding location tracking

  • In order to confirm the activity done, distance difference is also recorded in the system

  • False reporting records are auto highlighted if the reporting is done out of deviation range. This means, salesperson hasn't visited client's place and did false entry from some other place other than client's location. This action is termed as “Deviated by Location”.

  • Flexible deviation range till 100 mts. is acceptable

Thus, this is how Trackoo app- a real-time salesperson tracking software works by recording each and every action instantly at real-time, whether it is client's registration or location deviation by salesperson. Want to know benefits of this app? Read further-
