Google announced today that Google Maps Coordinate, a mobile and web app that lets teams assign jobs and share their locations with each other in real time, will now be included with every Maps Engine Pro subscription ($5 per user per month).

This should make Coordinate much more accessible to small businesses and work teams, Google believes, as the sign-up process is easier. Users can use their existing Google account credentials to sign up; previously Coordinate was available only to Google Apps customers.

Google introduced its Map Engine Pro product last fall to let users easily create and collaborate on maps. Google says the addition of Coordinate should help users “communicate, organize, and make decisions with location-based insights.”

For example, Google says, a building management firm can organize the buildings it maintains on a map and, when a maintenance call comes in, assign the nearest worker to the job.

Here’s the walk-through.
