    Wondering if any of you use the JobClock systems by exaktime or similar products. Was thinking of the palmpilot one for my service trucks.

    we use telenav tracking , 10.00 per month , employees clock in on thier phone , and i always know where they are at and how long they stayed there . I can go back 4 weeks later and look at a report if a customer questions a bill ,print it and give to the customer and say you are wrong now pay me . job clock is obsolete now . i can also tell how fast they are driving my trucks .

    ICS you get any prices yet?

    I know it depends on how many employees you have and whatnot... I thought about getting a quote but never got around to it. PM me if you ever get any prices and let me know what it looks like please.

    The prices I got were about a G per unit, was just looking into getting one or two though, gonna check out what the other guy said for $10 a month, when I looked into that type of system they were like $30 per month with a multi year contract.

    I have Nextel but its probably avaible with other carriers . Look online its called Telenav Tracking . Man a grand a uint for job clock that would be a bad investment compared to Telenav , which is only 10.00 per month

    I have alltel for my phone and supplied revol phones for my workers. Was talking to a nextel resaler and if you own a seasonal company you can just have your phones turned off during your down time. If you sign a 2 yr contract it is 48 months of actual use so if you use your phones 6 months a season it would be 4 calendar years for the contract. Was thinking of buying a couple of nextels for the 2 way use of them and charging the workers for any cell minutes they used.

    Telenav does much more than tracking and job clock in . It can also give GPS directions by picture or even voice directions . You can tag your workers and they can have turn by turn directions to your location . Also makes them so much more productive , stops the 15 minute 7/11 coffe stop .Ever have a customer say you did not service them ? Well a breadcrumb print out stops all of that nonsense .

    Lawn Tek,

    Besides the $10 per month you have to add the browser time too right?
