I am looking for a programmer who could provide me the solution outlined below :
I have a sales team of over a 100 employees. It would be helpful if these sales people could be tracked on the road and the head office can monitor their location, including location history.
Each of these employees carry a blackberry cellphones (various models however all are 3G and GPS enabled)
The idea is to develop an application that would be installed on each of their phones,
This application will continuously run in the background.
Each of these employees will be signed in to the application using their employee ID / username and password.
We need this application to collect location data from aGPS / cell id of signalling tower etc (similar to what google maps / latitude are using) and send it to our server, so we can monitor and track the current location, location history of all our employees from a single web based portal.
latitude / longitude coordinates collected from the phone would also serve the purpose even though they wont get any gps signal in the indoors, however, we can at least have accurate location before they stepped inside.
We currently use google latitude to track movement of these employees, however, google latitude does not serve our purpose since it allows for our employees to set their location manually. We still use it to track location history and rely on an assumption that none of the sales people could attempt to create a travel pattern through the day, manually.
I understand various limitations of such a solution, and we can make necessary adjustments in our expectations if a simple solution can be drawn out that cant be beaten.
Budget is NEGOTIABLE, with huge margins, depending upon the quality of work
