The driver can see all of their current jobs with detailed information like the sender and receiver locations (with the possibility to view them on a map), the number of packages, weight, intstructions and messages.
You can change the current status of a job, immediately visible to the office personnel and in the customer web site.
The background location service enables the driver to get real time updates to his Zone Queue data (visible in the navigation title) from which the driver can decide in which order to carry out his tasks. It affects how many tasks a driver can get and carry out per time unit and thus how effective he will be. Furthermore, the location is used to provide essential information about traffic jams, road maintenance, obstacles in roads, accidents and other events in the vicinity of the driver.
Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
