Leisure mode for mobile phones with the inViu routes GPS tracking app – great for switching between business and personal use


We’re going to put the spotlight on one of inViu routes newest features, the leisure mode.


Now with the ability to turn mobile phones into GPS tracking devices by installing the free app, it does not make sense to track the mobile phone’s movement 24 hours a day. Just how it sounds, the leisure mode allows users to use their work phone for personal use outside of working hours without being monitored. This feature creates a win-win situation for both the employer and employee as it increases efficiency in managing mobile workers and allows these workers to use one smartphone instead of carrying a separate phone for private use.

Settings

How it works is each mobile phone’s inViu routes settings would be configured to automatically track during the employee’s work hours. You can also import predefined leisure mode templates to save time during setup. Create several templates to easily switch between different shifts. After the desired template is selected, the employer would then lock the phone’s inViu routes settings with a security code. This way the employee cannot change the ‘auto start’ settings.


Overtime

A great feature of leisure mode is the extension verification message. The user can choose to extend tracking time when working overtime. This is important for companies that use the inViu timestamp as their employees’ work hours for payroll. The message appears at the end of every scheduled shift for the employee to confirm the worked hours or to extend them.

Leisure mode is just one of the many updates made to inViu routes to turn it into a business-friendly tool for a cost-effective tracking system.
