Geo Location Cloud Service for ITIL Service Management pinpoints technician location around the globe to provide local point of presence for improved response times and better customer service.

Newport Beach, CA – May 18, 2009 – LiveTime Software, a leading provider of ITIL based Web 2.0 Service Management and Help Desk Software, today announced its new Geo Location service that enables service providers to track technicians and customers using LiveTime anywhere in the world. LiveTime Geo Location for Service Management allows organizations to offer advanced resource allocation based on a technician’s specific location.

The new Geo Location feature will be introduced in LiveTime 6.0 with an accuracy of 25 square miles from desktop computers and within 5 meters using LiveTime’s forthcoming, native iPhone application available at the Apple Store via iTunes.
