Abaqus’ myGeoTracking Service Adds GPS-Tagged QR Codes for Employee Time & Attendance, Accountability Tracking, & Workforce Automation

Palo Alto CA, April 15 2015

myGeoTracking Workforce Management App with QR Code scanner allows users to record time & attendance for precise indoor location and replace use of RFID for Security Industry and Facility Management needs


Abaqus, Inc., a provider of the first-of-a-kind myGeoTracking cloud-hosted location and messaging platform, has added a location-tagged Quick Response (QR) code scanner feature to its mobile app for more powerful and precise mobile time-clocking and job status updates for employees working inside buildings or dense built-up areas, and for both static and roving security staff.

A QR code can be used to store the identity of a mobile employee; the geo-coordinates of a building or facility, including details such as floor number and unit number; or a specific security patrol point. The myGeoTracking app can be set-up by an administrator to automatically monitor an employee’s location, and as they enter various parts of a job site the employee can simply scan a QR placed on site to create a very precise attendance record & attendance stamp inside building, floor, or suite. It can also trigger additional workflow actions and alerts to meet company needs, such as sending an alert to a manager when a specific QR code is scanned, or an exception alert when a particular assignment is not completed within a specified time.

“A lot of our maintenance tasks are located deep inside multi-story structures, such as in crawlspaces, basements and utility closets where normal GPS can’t verify employee attendance. That’s where the location-enabled QR Code scanner feature on the myGeoTracking app really helps us better track my employees’ activities for payroll, job-costing and accountability,” said one myGeoTracking customer. “This has been a very effective solution and gives me a real edge over my competition.”

“More and more of our customers are tapping into advanced app features like our new QR Code scanning capability, and combining them with messaging and geofencing rules engine to create workforce automation for their business needs,” said Shailendra Jain, CEO of Abaqus, Inc. “This adds to our existing suite of cost effective & time-efficient solutions for workforce management including attendance monitoring, emergency response, employee accountability with strong privacy controls, custom reporting etc. without the need for expensive equipment and tagging technologies.”

The myGeoTracking service can be delivered via a low-touch app or through a 100% cloud-based service feature that requires no app and works on any mobile device. The service can be customized for various vertical industries and includes features such as:

  • Full location coverage – the Hybrid Wi-Fi/GPS/Cell-ID combination seamlessly transitions from indoor location, to GPS, to cell-tower based information as the situation requires, and includes smartphone app and no-app options.
  • Supports No-App solution for feature phones in North America (US and Canada).
  • Supports App based solution on all Android, iOS and Windows phones (for US and International Markets)
  • Cloud-hosted management portal for service administration including rules, alerts, geo-fencing, enterprise messaging and reporting.
  • Minimal end-user interaction or training. The service has a very light footprint on the phone that enables cloud-hosted controls with little input from the user. Users can use the app to log job status.
