Transport companies and their contractors will have access to the portal to manage their drivers, view mobile app usage and review the photo captures. Manufacturing companies will be able to view mobile app usage and view associated photo captures. Site Location admins will be able to manage the details relating to their location and will be able to send notifications to all devices, providing a single place for site location communication.
