What are check-in geofences?

When a user enters or leaves Check-in geofences, the time and location of this person will be recorded. Typical use cases are to know when employees are getting to your work site and who should be accounted for. In the case of maintenance and service companies, it would show when workers arrived at the customer side and how long they stayed there.
