It’s a well-known fact that TSheets helps business owners save hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars each year — but did you know that TSheets has also saved an employee from wrongful conviction? Or that it’s saved a stolen smartphone from the hands of a thief?
How about this? Most recently, TSheets even saved a stolen truck.
According to the news report, the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado was stolen by 23-year-old Jide Frederick-Lloyd, a resident of Decatur, Georgia. Before he could get too far, he was located and arrested by Metter police.
But here’s what the news report doesn’t tell you:
The truck was owned by an employee of Full Turn Services, a property maintenance and preservation company located in Savannah, Georgia. The employee had left the truck for a matter of seconds while he double checked that he had locked the door of the property he was leaving. Unfortunately, a matter of seconds was all it took for Frederick-Lloyd to hop behind the wheel.
When the employee realized what had happened, he immediately contacted the police and alerted them to the theft, but, by then, Frederick-Lloyd was nowhere to be found.
That’s when Emil Mrsic, owner of Full Term Services, remembered one very important detail: the employee had been tracking his time using TSheets at the time of the theft — and TSheets was tracking the phone’s location.
Mrsic signed in to his TSheets account, navigated to the Who’s Working window, and clicked on the employee’s location. From there, he (and the police) tracked the stolen vehicle’s location using TSheets.
The police caught the bandit nearly 60 miles away and recovered the employee’s stolen truck, and it’s all thanks to Mrsic’s quick thinking and TSheets’ accurate-to-the-second time and location tracking.
Once again, the day (time, and money) is saved with TSheets.
Stolen vehicle recovery isn’t the only benefit of GPS location tracking within the workplace — studies show that employees appreciate the payroll accuracy, increased accountability, and sense of safety that comes with workplace GPS.
