Two location apps help you keep track of and direct your team, whether they're in vehicles or on foot.
With AVL/APL, controllers can identify the right field response at a glance. Dispatchers can send in the right units and follow their progress throughout an operation.
For instance, say team 1 is completing a job at location C, while team 2 has just started working at location B. Team 2 still may be able to respond faster to an incident at location A than the more distant unit that's ready to roll.
GPS and other location-based services transmit data from a radio terminal to AVL/APL applications at regular time intervals or when a unit moves a certain distance. All this signalling naturally generates traffic on the radio network.
Here are two complementary ways to manage the traffic load:
Knowing the location of teams and team members makes for faster responses.
