This information needs to be communicated to the transfer sites for them to have the data to compare with their incoming load details. Verizon (NYSE:VZ) brought GroveWare into the discussion to see how the MobiTask solution could help solve the problem on hand...
...The project has allowed Capitol to properly manage work that is being completed onsite and create a compliance method for the work that is being transferred offsite. The project has been so successful that Capitol Environmental wants to implement the on all sites. This could provide a considerable source of revenue for GroveWare as their licensing agreement is based on per user and billed monthly, quarterly or annually.
