Making money or just making time?
Keeping your finger on the pulse of a mobile workforce has never been easy. You have questions about how your team are using their time – are they busy with profitable tasks or getting held up with non-essential activities?
Critical questions often went unanswered. You made management decisions based on gut feeling, instead of fact. You set benchmarks based on assumptions rather than actual data. Telogis Status changes all of this.
Know how your business spends its time
It’s fine to be busy but if you’re busy doing stuff that doesn’t make your business more profitable you’ll struggle to move forward. Telogis Status switches the lights on, giving you the information you need to manage your mobile workforce more effectively.
- Identify bottlenecks in current processes
- How long are workers spending on specific tasks
- Isolate costly non-productive tasks
- Calculate actual job costs
Optimizing your workflow
Sometimes the key to making positive changes in your business is to do it gradually; evolution not revolution. Telogis Status can provide you with valuable data that can be fed into an ongoing feedback loop, allowing you to make valuable improvements over time without causing too much disruption. Use timing data to improve:
- Job planning
- Realistic ETAs
- Performance reviews
- Costing new work
Better dispatch with greater situational awareness
As mobile workers update their status, that information is fed directly into back office systems so dispatchers have an up-to-the-minute report on individual workers.
Save time by minimizing back-and-forth messaging to find the best team member to send to ad hoc or emergency jobs. It’s all about improving asset utilization and making the best use of the resources you have available.
Realistic benchmarks based on real-world data
Setting reasonable expectations for employees is only possible when it’s known how long tasks actually take. Telogis Status removes the guesswork by providing you with detailed reports across your entire workforce.
Data can be broken down by date range, employees or departments for more accurate analysis, and for making sure benchmarks stay current and accurate.

Accurate billing – know the actual cost of a job
Telogis Status not only provides you with a clear view of time spent on a given job but individual tasks that make up each job. If that’s not enough, you can even label tasks using custom tags that link them to specific customers, cost centers or projects.
This level of detail is perfect for streamlining billing, budgeting and payroll – know who’s doing what, how long they’re spending on it and who it’s for.
