Google Maps Engine Gets Workforce Management Tool

Google Maps Engine Pro customers now have free access to Maps Coordinate to manage workers and share location information in real time.

Businesses and individuals using Google Maps Engine Pro for collaborative map creation now have access to a workforce management tool at no extra charge.

Maps Engine Pro subscribers can now use Google Maps Coordinate to manage workers and share location information in real time. The addition of this dynamic data visualization and location-based communication to Maps Engine Pro leaves the subscription price unchanged: $5 per user per month, or $50 per user per year.

Those already paying for Google Maps Coordinate will be switched to a Maps Engine Pro subscription and will see a significant price reduction. When Google Maps Coordinate was launched in June 2012, it cost $15 per user per month. Following the introductory period, the price was raised to $24 per user per month. Those paying for both services should cancel their now-redundant Coordinate subscription and contact Google support to receive a pro-rated refund.

Google Maps Coordinate was designed to help companies dispatch and manage mobile workers. The service supports three roles: dispatcher, worker, and administrator. Through an Android app, an iOS app, or a Web browser, a dispatcher can create jobs, create teams, check workers' locations and location histories, and assign jobs.
