Sprint Precision Locator keeps track of employees via GPS

Marc Perton

sprint precision locatorSprint is getting in on the GPS tracking game with its Precision Locator service. No, this isn't another kid-tracker. Targeted at businesses, Precision Locator lets companies track their workers using any Sprint GPS-enabled phone. As with similar services, bosses in the home office can track employees via a web-based interface, and can also receive alerts if they've slipped into an unauthorized area (that's right, no more slipping off to the beach in the middle of the day). Of course, the tracked employees may find this a little invasive, but if your boss hands you a GPS-enabled phone, you should pretty much know what to expect (and you can always try the old leaving-the-phone-in-the-car trick if you decide to light out for the territories on company time).
