Just Imagine you are a call center operator at an electric utility company. A call comes downed a power line in one of the northern suburbs of your city, and an entire neighborhood is without power. You have something very urgent on your site that you want that thing at the very say moment, to far a one hour .To save time and power; you want to know which line repairers are already in the area. Thinking for the same, Google has announced Google Maps coordinate. Google Maps coordinate comes as a new tool designed to improve communication between businesses and their employees in the field.

Employees in the field download the mobile app to their phone and then can:

  • Share real-time location. Google Maps Coordinate is built on Google’s mapping and geolocation infrastructure so the app will send an accurate location, even if you’re indoors (Google Maps Coordinate integrates with Google Indoor Maps).
  • Record data. Mobile teams often need to collect information while out in the field. Google Maps Coordinate allows the admin to customize the fields that the mobile team needs to capture and collect – from measurements to client contact details – directly in the app.
