As a moving company, the right GPS moving company software makes a big difference. Your crew never works from the same place twice, so your “office” is constantly on the move.

How do you keep track of your team when they’re never in the same place?

Monitoring your field movers with a reliable GPS tracker app is a game-changer. Plus, a lot of software for movers also comes with billing, invoicing, and other tools designed to help you save time and money.

A good fleet management tool addresses a lot of the challenges you face in the moving industry.

  • Better route tracking helps you predict and adjust for delays due to weather, inaccurate estimates, or other common issues
  • Real-time data makes it easier to keep customers informed and satisfied. This, in turn, can improve your customer service rating
  • Historical data helps you make better, more accurate estimates for new jobs
  • Time tracking on your movers’ mobile apps creates accurate timesheets automatically and saves time and effort on back-office tasks
  • Accurate location and time tracking data gives you the tools you need to improve billing, invoicing, and expense tracking

How to use GPS moving company software to power growth

A cloud-based app like Hubstaff Field keeps your team connected, no matter where the workday takes them. That visibility is powerful.

Being able to see and respond to that GPS tracking data opens up a lot of opportunities for management to optimize your business. A great mobile solution can increase your productivity, help you manage your fleet, streamline back-office operations, and even boost your customer service ratings.

Increase productivity with GPS-based software

Does it feel like there’s never enough time in a day to get everything done? If so, you’re not alone. The packing and moving industry is loaded with complexities that make it hard for businesses to build efficient processes.

One of the biggest challenges is uncertainty. You never know what the day is going to bring. Even within a day, each job is different.

Use GPS and time tracking data to streamline your processes

With Hubstaff Field, you have real data on past jobs that help you make easier, more accurate estimates. You’ll know what kind of pitfalls to expect — like which movers have a history of taking extra time on a job and may need closer supervision.

Tracking time in Hubstaff Field makes it easier to prioritize jobs effectively. You can easily analyze which jobs are most profitable, which have the highest risk, and what kind of jobs take the most resources.

Automatic, accurate timesheets and payroll

On top of that, this software takes the hassle out of timesheets. You can set up geofences around specific locations to automatically clock movers in and out when they arrive on the job.

Even without those geofences, though, the user-friendly Hubstaff app makes it easy to clock in and out. If someone is late to a shift or leaves early, you’ll get a notification. This makes it far easier to keep track of your field team throughout the day because you won’t need to constantly check in on them. You can focus on the management tasks that need to get done while the cloud-based moving software keeps track of your team for you.

That tracked time automatically creates timesheets for your team to submit each week. They can simply review them to make sure they tracked accurately and send their hours to you for approval. You can review all the time they tracked (including hours they added manually) and approve timesheets with a single click.

Once approved, these timesheets can automatically trigger the payroll process.

Use integrations with tools like PayPal, Payoneer, and Wise to process paychecks each week. With Hubstaff Field, you’ll be able to spend less time and money on payroll due to timesheet inaccuracies.

By adding just one software solution to your repertoire, you can cut down on the time you spend managing your team, find the inefficiencies in your current operations, and never have to chase down timesheets again.

Streamline fleet management

Hubstaff location tracking

For a packing and moving business, it is imperative to know the exact position of your teams at all times. Without proper fleet tracking, you cannot have total control over your field service business.

Monitor routes and stops in real-time

Have you ever been in this scenario?

You sent out a fleet of movers this morning to tackle a list of profitable jobs. This afternoon, you get a call from a customer asking where the heck your movers are. They’re hours late and this is the first you’ve heard of it. You can’t give that customer the support they want right away because you have to make some phone calls and track down the team that was supposed to be there already.

That’s a frustrating problem. Fortunately, it has a simple solution.

With Hubstaff Field, you can see where everyone on your team is while they’re tracking time. You know about unauthorized stops or detours, delays getting on the road, or late arrivals.

With this real-time information, you have the power to reach out to your team to offer help or contact customers ahead of time to let them know what’s going on.

Reduce overhead

Hubstaff payroll

No software is worth the cost if it doesn’t create at least as much value for your business. Hubstaff Field pays for itself by helping you reduce your overhead and address the issues that are costing you money.

Reduce labor costs and overages

When timesheets and payments are based on tracked time instead of self-reported hours, your payroll is much more accurate and cost-effective.

Time tracking helps reduce expensive issues like time theft and buddy punching. Each mover tracks their own time and location in their mobile app, so you save on overages from intentional and unintentional inaccuracies.

In addition to the money you save with time tracking, Hubstaff Field gives you controls to help manage job costs and budgets.

Project cost management

You can set limits on work hours based on the number of hours or the amount of money you spend. When a team member approaches the limit, you both get an alert so you can plan accordingly.

Project cost management & job costing are efficient solutions to keep your expenses well in hand.

The budget management features in Hubstaff Field allow you to create your budget, monitor expenses, and see detailed reports that help moving businesses stay profitable.

Become more customer-friendly

We already talked about how Hubstaff Field gives you the information you need to proactively reach out to customers when things don’t go as planned. Showing up late is one of the top complaints customers have about moving companies, so a little extra communication from dispatch goes a long way towards building rapport.

In fact, great fleet management software has a lot to do with the quality of your customer service.

Hubstaff Field lets you spend less time on team management and more time following up on leads, responding to customers, and investing in your marketing operations.

Customers are more likely to be satisfied when the sales team is easier to reach and quotes are more accurate. Happy customers refer more good leads. Good leads help your company grow.
