The “See” application is a solution that facilitates job management with accurate time reporting based on geo-fencing. This type of application is perfect for managing employees booked for multiple job sites in a single day… property management services, the cleaning industry, home care workers, carpenters and construction contractors, etc.
Appivo built this solution for Spruce – a commercial cleaning services company with a need to reduce paperwork and enhance communications. Spruce knew they wanted to leverage technology to improve their operations but weren’t sure where to start. After a few discussions we identified time reporting and messaging as quick wins that would make a big impact.
Time reporting is a manually-intensive, paper-based process – especially with remote job sites and supervisors bouncing around between them. Even when all of the paper time cards are collected, nobody enjoys data entry and mistakes can be costly. Now with See, employees clock in and out from their phones and all of the data is available to management in real time and can even be exported to pay roll systems.
In See, each job can be configured with a geo-fence – meaning that the app confirms that staff are actually at the job site before allowing them to clock in and out. When mistakes happen, like when an employee forgets to clock out, supervisors can make adjustments straight from their phones.
See also enhances corporate communications by providing one-to-one messaging, group messaging and job boards. With job boards, anyone can post job-specific messages and photos to share with the job team and other employees. Site reports, status updates and incident reports can all be posted and shared in real-time.

See was built by Appivo with the Appivo App Builder, and runs on the Appivo App Platform. It took about 11 person-weeks to build and deploy; compared to more than double that for traditional app-dev methods.
