Key Features of Sapience on Mobile

  • Automatic tracking of your travel time and locations visited by you using GPS and mobile network
  • Shows distance traveled and time taken
  • Displays the route taken between two locations
  • Automatic recording of a visit – if you spend more than 15 minutes at a location
  • Enables classification of a visit or travel time as work or private
  • Predefined tags for visits or travel time such as office/home etc., are available

  • Reports showing visits and travels for the day, week or month
  • Optional uploading of work related visits and travel information to Sapience Server for further analytics.

The application works in two modes: Standalone and Enterprise.

  • Standalone Mode: All the collected data remains on the device and you don’t need to register to any Sapience server.
  • Enterprise Mode: Data about business activities are uploaded to the Sapience server for further analytics. Data about private activities never leaves the device. You need to register on the Sapience server where the business data is to be uploaded. This data and related analytics can be seen by logging on to the web client of Sapience server.

After successful installation and registration, Sapience starts keeping track of your locations visited and travel. In case of Standalone mode the travel and locations visited can be marked as Work or Private. In case of Enterprise Mode, this usage can be mapped to different Purposes based on default Intelligence rules that have been set up on the Sapience Server for your organization. You can mark Location visits and travel to Purpose of your choice. Sapience remembers these changes and makes them specific to you on your phone. Therefore, proper allocation gradually reduces the need to make explicit allocations after a few days. You can start the application UI by clicking on its icon. When you start the application for the first time after installation, you will get the following prompt. iEnterprise If you select “Cancel”, then the application will remain in Standalone mode and the UI will change to Home Screen.
