So as an experiment, we Checked In & Out of 12 Sites a day for a month. Alot more than any of your employees are likely to use. Our total data usage on a Smartphone for the month was 30mb.

In comparison in the same month on that device.

Google Maps 135mB

Chrome 527mb

You Tube 244mb

Google Services 178mb (this is actually updates that just kept the phone operational)

Gmail 127mb

Facebook 94.10mb

Twitter 47.97mb

100's of Apps in between

Mobile Security 22.71mb

freshOps 22.9 megabytes

So you can see that if you have staff with a Smartphones, the data to keep it running is more than the freshOps App.

Should you reimburse your staff for the data?

If we take Telstra as an example being one of the more expensive data providers.

On average most providers offer data for $10/GB

1GigaByte Data costs $15/month

1GB is 1000mB

therefor 1mb of data costs $0.015

So freshOps would use $0.34/month of data of a Cleaners plan.

The choice is yours.
