For a business to climb high on the success ladder, it is imperative that it makes higher profits. The responsibility of running a company is on its management which should take effective steps to increase its productivity. Higher productivity consequently leads to higher profits for the business.

The simple definition of productivity with regards to economics is – the measure of production output per unit of production input. A company basically runs due to the work done by its employees or workers and who are responsible for production of goods or provision of services. Thus it’s essential that their efficiency be improved to an optimum level. With the advent of the latest technologies, it has become much easier to measure the production of workers and organize and plan the activities of its workforce.

Most of the employees or workers of a company have a mobile nowadays and therefore a new concept known as the mobile workforce has come into existence. Several companies have to now manage a big mobile workforce which usually caters to distribution, servicing, maintenance and construction work. Particularly for those companies which have to routinely send their field work staff, it becomes a logistical problem and concern about proper method of utilization of available resources. Tasks like allocation of the most efficient mobile worker to a job and properly planning the beginning, the completion and the travel time can in fact augment the efficiency and improve customer experience.

A mobile workforce management application can help in planning and management of different teams of a mobile workforce. It can offer many advantages such as:
