Check in Object for Technicians


I apologize if I am placing this query in the wrong topic, but I believe that this is where it should be!  

I am attempting to make a (somewhat) simple app for my technicians that they can access via the SalesForce1 App.  Basically it will be a tab labelled 'Check In' that the technician presses which will give the tech a few different options that they can set as their status and will then link to a visual force page that collects the techs location data via geocaching and then outputs this location data along with the status the tech seleccted with a timestamp to a 'current location' and 'current status' field in the 'technician' object.  A dashboard will then collect this data and display on the salesforce main screen so that we always know our techs status and location.

Is this possible?  Am I way off track?  I'm fairly new to Salesforce so even just some help getting pointed in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

Check out - they have a couple of apps that already do that.  CheckLists - I think.
