Product[edit]

vWorkApp is an online job dispatch and scheduling product for transportation and services industries. Some of vWorkApp's features include GPS tracking, step-by-step job instructions, automatic data synchronization, electronic signature capturing, and built in reporting. The vWorkApp smartphone application is currently available for the Android OS and iOS.

With vWorkApp, a dispatcher can create and schedule jobs for mobile workers via an account on the app's website. After a dispatcher schedules a job, mobile workers receive real-time push technology notifications with job details on their smartphones.[3]

The dispatcher will receive real-time updates when a mobile worker edits job details, completes a job, etc. within the smartphone application.[4]
