What if you want to monitor the movements of your staff (with their knowledge of course)?
Swift Credit are a credit-control and debt collection agency that employ bailiffs to collect debts all over the country. They want to be sure the bailiffs are making the visits they’re supposed to be and/or whether they’ve been delayed. Most importantly they need to be able to prove in a court of law that bailiffs actually made the visits they say they did. Bearded Hen created an Android tablet app to run in the background and report location information back to head-office. Tablets are also used to display documents related to a case which may be confidential. The app handles the deletion of these confidential documents when the tablet is shut down to avoid exposure if the device is stolen.
– App auto-starts when tablet is turned on and runs in the background without interfering with other tablet functionality
– Logs location every 30 seconds and uploads these logs to head office server when a data connection is available
– Locations displayed on a map at head office
– Prior to the tablet powering-down, any confidential documents on the tablet are deleted avoiding loss due to theft of device
