Being able to see the real time location of your team though FleetSharp's GPS tracking will allow you to hold your employees accountable and schedule based on your team's location.

You will need to order a FleetSharp device to use the integration. The device plugs into your vehicle and contains a SIM card that sends information back to FleetSharp, they don't rely on an internet connection or an app. Devices typically ship within 5 to 7 business days. We run an update nightly which will populate the vehicle on your map view of the calendar in Jobber the following day.
To manage your devices, click the Gear Icon > Settings > Connected Apps > Fleetsharp GPS. This is where you can view your vehicles, tracking ID, and route history. Clicking the option under Action will allow you to edit the tracker name and vehicle color.
From the map view of the calendar, when you click on a vehicle you will see stats about that vehicle. You will see the device name, speed and direction, fuel level, mileage, and the check engine light.
If you are looking for more robust tracking and reports, FleetSharp offers a variety of reports on their website as well as a free app. Their reports include statistics like engine diagnostics, safety reports, idling reports, route replays, and mileage.
In January 2020, Jobber and Fleetsharp put on a webinar together to discuss how fleet management software can help you reduce fuel costs, improve fleet safety and enable you to provide better service to your customers.
