Sales Force Tracking Android App

Sales Force Tracking System using Android Phones. The system uses 2 apps, the Sales Force Logger and Sales Force Trakker. SF Logger is installed on a salespersons phone, while SF Trakker is installed on a manager or business owner's phone.



How it Works?

SF Logger sends a salesperson's GPS location via SMS in response to SMS queries by SF Trakker equipped phones. The SF Logger phone does not need an internet connection to work. Only GPS turned on and SMS is required. When SF Trakker receives the GPS location of the salesperson, the location is automatically shown on Google Maps on the phone. SF Trakker needs to be connected to the internet via wifi or a 3g connection for this to work. As a security feature, SF Logger can set the mobile no. of the SF Trakker phone that is allowed to request a location.



Note that unlike other Sales Force tracking system SF Logger does not keep on sending location updates periodically, but only sends location updates when requested by SF Trakker. This saves on SMS costs if you do not have an unlimited SMS plan.


 Installation Instructions

 Install SF Trakker and SF Logger from the Android Market.
