Second in a series of posts with Tips & Tricks to get the most out of the Geoforce Application. In addition to the industry-leading GIS sources for rig, well, and offshore feature data that Geoforce provides as part of a subscription; users can also manage sets of interesting named locations, such as home yards or leases. During the account setup process an Account Support Representative (ASR) guides new users through the process of setting up at least one named location, also known as a “geo-fence”. Named locations can be categorized in many different ways, and are distinguished by custom colors on the map. Some examples of named locations in the Geoforce application are:
- Define job sites and set speed limits for your drivers to help monitor compliance to safety policies.
- Set location-based alerts to take action when an asset enters or leaves a home yard.
- The Geoforce Rental module identifies when equipment was off-rent but sending location data outside of a home yard. This can help you capture missed rental revenue and validate rental invoices.
- The Geoforce Service Verification presents a clear picture of how long vehicles spent at a jobsite or driving between jobsites, substantially simplifying invoice reconciliation with named location data.
- Reports such as the Days on Site, Asset Location, and the Location Inventory report can all use custom named location data to give you actionable information about your assets in the field, as well as their utilization.
