A geofence is a virtual boundary that is defined by GPS coordinates. Geofencing relies on a computer or mobile device’s ability to identify its location using GPS. This information is used to create a virtual barrier around a specific location. When a device enters or exits that virtual barrier, an alert can be triggered. Many GPS tracking platforms also allow you to set up automatic actions based on a device’s geolocation. For example, you can program your software to send an alert whenever an employee leaves work and enters a geofenced area. The alert could include the employee’s name and the time they left work. This information can be extremely useful when an employee is expected to be at a specific location.
Geofencing is a powerful tool that can be used in a variety of ways. It can help keep people safe, make driving more efficient, and help you get more done at work. A GPS tracking platform with geofencing is the best way to take advantage of these benefits.
