Google has emerged as a prominent player for iPhone apps. You can fill your iPhone with Google apps, both for professional and personal management. From Gmail, Google earth, Google Sync, Google voice to Blogger, Google apps have proved to be smart, intuitive and extremely user friendly. It is no surprise then that several Google apps rank in the top 20 list of iPhone.
The hottest entry in the range of Google apps is a Google Coordinate app for iPhones. The app is a mobile workforce management tool for businesses. It can be downloaded from iTunes or Apple App Store. The initial version of the app for Android is known as Google Maps Coordinate, and it has been present in the Google Play Store since a long time. The latest Google app is optimized for iPhone 5 and requires an iOS 5.1 or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Google has maintained its previous design approach. The app has a professional layout with minimal designs. This makes the app easy to install and operate. Moreover, all location data is stored in Google’s data centers. This data can be accessed 24/7 due to minimal equipment failure.
Google Coordinate is a simple yet effective tool for a mobile workforce. Team personnel are represented using Google map which helps to delegate and schedule tasks faster and better. The app seems really promising for business that can benefit from tracking the whereabouts of their employees. Let’s take a look how:
Real Time Location Sharing
Either indoors or outdoors, administrators can track employees with real time location sharing. This helps them to assign jobs easily, thus increasing work efficiency.
Team members get instantly updated on their day-today duties. Moreover, they can send prompt notifications of their task to the administrators. This is a great way to ease internal as well as external business communication.
Google Coordinate effectively helps in recording data. While performing the task the staff can record data and share it across teams. This helps businesses in strategic data management and consumption.
Point of Interest
Google Coordinate is integrated with Google Maps and employees can update information on it while on the go (like add new client locations or work resources). The updated information is useful for new employees who can save time and thus shorten their learning curve.
Data Mining with Google Coordinate
Google Coordinate helps businesses to capture all task and location data of its employees. Administrators can save and use this information over time to improve productivity and to align business motives.
The app is being offered at an introductory price of $15.00 per user per month (for 12 months purchase). Google Coordinate only works when employees have Google Coordinate running and are in visible mode. Most importantly they must have a Google Coordinate license as it does not work for consumer Google accounts. This is one of the reasons why Google Coordinate can never be as popular as Google’s other iOS apps.
It may appear to be a self-limiting gadget from Google. However; Google is confident of its immense benefits to the iPhone users. In a broader sense, Apple benefits from Google too, as its consumers benefit from the unique Google technology.

Google has been doing a great job and it continues to be the best.I think this app requires us to have a Google Coordinate license and the license is available freely by Google.This app will surely help us to coordinate our workforce more effectively and also help us to assign jobs according to their location.

You are right Karlon. Imagine how useful such an app would be for people working on oil rigs or other such dangerous locations. Pinpointing the exact location of co-workers could increase security for such workers.
