RoadChek is unique in its ability to stop tracking the user while off duty. The system can be set so that the app user can set a work schedule -for example, Monday to Friday 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. When the day or time falls outside of those work hours, the app automatically stops functioning to assure privacy. The supervisor (or parent in the case of family use) can also set a work schedule in the RoadChek portal. The system will then identify anytime the driver’s schedule deviates from the supervisor’s schedule. For example, a user has an 8:30 to 4:30 work schedule but need to go to the doctor at 3:00 PM. The user can go “Off Duty” by simply flipping the On Duty / Off Duty toggle switch on the top of the app. The supervisor would then see an exception between the schedules. The worker’s privacy is protected while the supervisor is kept informed. That 1.5 hour exception will not be scored or tracked but the supervisor can review the exception with the employee and take remedial action if desired.
This work scheduling feature is unique and is a key to being able to provide peace of mind to an employee or family member. In the case of an employee, RoadChek provides tremendous benefits in improving safety, productivity, and customer service with an exceptionally low cost. Without its ability to be automatically disabled on a schedule or manually from the app, there would be privacy concerns from the employee. In addition, RoadChek’s ability to shut down on schedule provides significant benefits to battery consumption.
For example, in the case of a father and teenaged daughter, a mutually agreed upon schedule could be reached, whereupon the app would automatically start tracking when outside of curfew hours. If the daughter is not home by 11:00 PM, then the parents can gain peace of mind, seeing that the daughter is just on the way home.
