AT&T and Xora have announced a GPS Locator application that will provide small- and medium-sized businesses with real-time visibility into the location of their mobile workforce. The new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application is compatible with most AT&T mobile devices, from basic phone handsets, to smartphones, to laptops. The service will be available at the end of July.

Xora GPS Locator from AT&T does not require any software to be loaded on the phone. Field-based employees simply power on their mobile devices and office staff can see their locations using Xora’s Web-based maps and reports. The Xora Web interface features Google Maps complete with street, satellite and hybrid views, as well as real-time traffic information. Web-based reports indicate where and when vehicles are stopped, and for how long.

The announcement with Xora is the latest in AT&T’s push to gain market share in the small-to-medium-business category. (For more, click here).
