Sprint today announced a new fleet tracking service for companies using Sprint (CDMA) handsets. Sprint Precision Locator allows businesses to track employees using the assisted GPS location service built into Sprint handsets. Business can use the service to determine whether an employee's phone is on, where it is, and also set alerts to see when he enters or leaves the business or any other location, like a work site or appointment. Subscription to the service includes locating each device 1000 times per month, determine whether a device is on 100 times per month, and 50 sms to each device per month. All these services are provided through a desktop interface with a pan and zoom map. Nextel already offers a similar service to its subscribers, the move is part of the newly merged Sprint Nextel's efforts to provide similar features on each network.
