Location Tracking

Empower Time Track allows Location Tracking of Employees via a smart device such as a smart phone or tablet that has assisted Global Positioning System (GPS).

Empower only tracks Employees Locations on a click of an Empower button. After work hours, in evenings and weekends, even with Location On set on their phones Empower cannot report the Employee location unless a button in EMpower is clicked.

Employees only need to turn Location Tracking on on their phone or tablets during work hours.

assisted GPS see Assisted GPS.  For a list of devices that support assisted GPS see Assisted GPS Devices.

Depending on the browser and device being used, Location Tracking tracks an approximate location from a variety of databases based on the data it receives.

It then displays this in Google Maps
