By writing there is no data link how did you propose to get the data to you?
Tipping my hand here. One of the projects I worked on last year was GPS tracking. But your post leads off by breaking how such a system works.
I have recently set up a new business where I employ a team of 5 sales reps who are responsible for door-to-door sales in urban areas. I wish to differentiate my services from our local competitors by exploiting GPS technology. However, I do not have a technology background and hence seeking your help.
Rather than buying and stocking the products from manufacturers, I have signed the contracts with them to engage only in door-to-door sales of their products. Delivery and payment collection is handled by the manufacturers themselves.
All the sales reps are provided with an entry-level android smartphone with GPS capability. However, they may NOT have data connectivity everywhere they go.
Now, I wish to purchase a system/software that allows me......
1) To track in real-time (live) the movements of all my sales reps on my laptop. (Ideally, I would prefer to see a single screen with Google Maps showing street-by-street movements of all the sales reps in it)
2) To offer the manufacturer an access to track in real-time the movements of a sales rep who is responsible for selling their products on any given day. (Please note that NOT ALL REPS sell the products of the same manufacturer, so they are only interested in monitoring the movements of the sales rep who is responsible for their products)
3) To offer the manufacturer a snapshot/screenshot, at the end of the day, of the Google Map showing which streets were covered by a sales rep on any given day.
Is there a way to achieve this?
All suggestions are welcome
