Are you looking for a colleague or the wizards themselves for guidance?

A quick rundown for your pleasure...

A completely free app and software
Cloud based
Offers geo-location, payment processing, task management, digital time clocks, invoicing, etc. to name a few of the big ones.
Big features coming soon (within 2 months) QB integration, OBD truck tracking capability for $10-$14/mo, and recurring/batch jobs (out in 10 days).


Locqus was conceived in 2008-2009 when a couple of my lawn trucks were stolen out of my driveway. Being a kid at the time with no insurance I learned a very hard lesson that locks and alarms only go so far. It went from wanting to compete with LoJack to the phone management application you see today.

Forged by U of M students it was and we are a small team of quick learning and working Detroiters who want and love your feedback to make it that much better.

For a walkthrough and demo please feel free to email me directly! Cheers gents, love the first thread about us !

Im a little curious about locqus myself. Thinking about using it but Im a little worried with it being cloud based. Are you able to download hard copies to your computer? Is it strictly internet based or downloadable software?

I wonder what actual users of locqus think and what their reviews are.

The cloud is always available! Some of our users have expressed the same concern and we have a hard-copy backup option in the works for those worried about the reliability of the cloud.

We are new to the space and from Detroit, we have a lot to prove. I would also love to know the same thing. 4 star reviews only tell us so much on the app stores. Anyone interested in something new??

I downloaded this program. The part that worried me was when I went to register for the card reader it said "subject to credit check" why would my credit need to be checked?

Credit Checks allow you to exceed $1000 in payments in any given week. Other merchant providers hold aberrant transactions for upwards of a month. We try and avoid that by settling most transactions within 36 hours and all transactions within 72 hours. Regardless, we are very flexible with regard to credit issuance and if you have any questions or concerns please call us at 800-647-1951 and we would be happy to help with whatever your needs are.
