A remote workforce is just that, distant. Meaning, it’s difficult to keep tabs on your field workers as there is a serious dearth of accurate means of tracking solutions. At least, that’s the problem I was running into. Most of my employees go out in the field, so it fell to the shoulders of my partner and accountant to keep an eye on everyone – taking their precious time away from other errands. Without an accurate GPS location tracking solution, my business partner was having a hard time holding the field workers accountable. The field employees were bound to register their time with the accountant as they were called multiple times during a day, once when they arrived at the client’s office or job site, and once when they are finished with the work. So that’s a lot of calls per day. Both business partner and bookkeeper spend half of their day taking calls left and right, and that was gravely affecting my ally’s productivity.
