Google Earth Outreach is happy to announce the latest offering in our Grants program: Google Maps Coordinate. Google Maps Coordinate is a workforce management tool that allows organizations to quickly and easily assign jobs to field workers, improving operational efficiency and communication. Coordinate lets a dispatcher team have real-time visibility into the locations of the field workers, and they can send job assignments directly to their mobile devices. In the field, mobile workers can accept jobs, add relevant information to each job assignment, keep their dispatchers updated, and work more efficiently knowing where all the other field workers are.
We’re looking forward to helping nonprofits use Google Maps Coordinate to do things like deploy urban forestry teams, urban car-sharing services, or mobile health workers to conduct surveys in villages. The Android Google Maps Coordinate app enables complete offline job access, so you can accept, check-in, and complete jobs include any notes on the job offline. Your updates will sync as soon as you’re back online.
Learn more about how Google Maps Coordinate works. Eligible nonprofits in the U.S., U.K. and Canada are welcome to apply for a Google Maps Coordinate grant today.
