Registration Process for Technicians

Let us briefly look how a technician will receive their invitation after you add them to Glympse PRO. This will provide you an overview of what the technician will receive once you invite them to Glympse PRO.

1. Technician will receive an invite to join Glympse PRO via text message

Techs will receive a text message from Glympse with an invite to join your company’s technician list. If your technician does not see a text message, be sure that you entered the correct phone number. The technician will click on the link in the text message to create a password for their account.

2. Technician will confirm their account setup and install the Glympse PRO app

After setting up their password, the technician will be prompted to download our Glympse PRO app from the App Store or Google Play Store.

3. Technicians can view jobs assigned to them

After login into the Glympse PRO app, the technician will see all jobs that have been assigned to them with details of appointment and customer information. When the technician clicks on “En Route”, the customer will be notified of their location and their ETA. Please know your driver’s location will only be shown when they are in the Glympse PRO app and have marked that they are “en route” (on the way) to a job. Once a job is marked complete, location sharing will end. Glympse PRO provides location-sharing experiences that strike a harmonious balance between easy, safe, useful, temporary, and private.

If you want to provide your technician with a manual on how to operate their new Glympse PRO app, please send them our article “Support Manual – Driver/Technician”. We highly recommend you do so your technicians fully understand how our app works and how tracking is implement during job runs.
