Changes in the Policy
GPS Location Tracking
Continuous Location Tracking
It remains our goal to not do continuous recording of GPS location of the end users. Only in case of multiple deliveries or service ticket scenarios, the location of the field agent is picked automatically after certain intervals. All such continuous location data is only used internally by the platform to recommend the next best job assignment. Continuous movement data is not exposed through any backend interface to any user or admin of the platform.
In some specific use cases where the current location is required for the backend agents to assign a task to a specific field executive manually, only the last known location is presented.
Location of Transactions
All transactions done by app users are tagged with geo-stamp. Users will be prompted to change their location settings in case it is switched off at the time of saving any transaction data.
Map View of Activities
Transactions captured with location can also be presented as a map view on specific interfaces on the platform.
Scope of Device Data Capturing
The BeatRoute app captures device data such as device manufacturer name, device model, battery status on every login, operating system version and Google Play Services version. This helps us troubleshoot any issues reported by users and also continually assess the app’s performances against available resources on the device. Such data is also visible to the company (BeatRoute’s customer and direct/indirect employer of BeatRoute users) personnel.
Data Capturing on our public Website

Use of SMS Account of the Device
BeatRoute is designed to support offline transactions on the App. In case a BeatRoute user is on-boarding a new customer or a partner for the company, an Acceptance Code is sent on the mobile number of customer/partner via SMS. This Acceptance code is a mark of acceptance from the customer/partner that company (BeatRoute’s customer) is entitled to sending SMS communications to them. In this process to support the offline feature, in case the internet is not available to BeatRoute App at that time, BeatRoute user will be prompted to accept sending SMS using his own device SMS account. Upon confirmation, BeatRoute uses the devices SMS account to send the acceptance code to customers/partners.
