The Importance of Driver Safety

The weather is warmer, school is coming to a close for the kids, and vacation season is nearly upon us. It’s a happy time of year with the snow just about all melted away. It only means one thing: more activity on the roadways.

Anyone who drives on a regular basis, whether it’s to and from work, or someone who drives a vehicle for a living, knows it’s imperative to be safe on the roadways. Make sure the tires are at a good grade, make sure the oil is fresh, and everything else with your vehicle is completely safe.

Still, the biggest component of driving safely is, well, driver safety. Things become tougher on the roadways with more and more vehicles clogging up lanes. This is especially true in areas that have high volumes of traffic and less than three lanes on each side for traffic.

Driving in an area with smalltown design, but big city aspirations can be a nightmare. In Allentown, Pennsylvania, as many as 100,000 people will clog the roadways during the day in certain spots of the highway. Despite the large volume of drivers, there are only two lanes in each direction for traffic. Add onto that about 100 yards for entry ramps, which is not a ton of room to merge, it’s not a great situation for hundreds of vehicles to go from two and one-half lanes to two.

The four-lane highway that may be better served as a six-lane roadway is not unique to Allentown. It may seem silly for experienced drivers, but it never hurts to have a reminder of safe driving habits for roadways that are difficult to maneuver. Anyone from an urban area is used to crowded roadways, but with plenty of lanes to get around. Anyone from a rural area is used to dealing with tight roads. Combining the two may not be a daily occurrence for every driver out there. Make sure you’re taking every precaution necessary to make it home at the end of the day.

How to Improve Teamwork

We’ve discussed at length various topics that play integral roles in contributing to a more positive, effective, and efficient workforce. Today, we’re taking a look at another important variable that is absolutely essential to the success of your company: teamwork.

Think of your company as a single machine. A machine is composed of a lot of moving parts. In order for that machine to properly function, each of the moving parts must successfully perform its designated task in tandem with all of the other parts, which are simultaneously fulfilling their functions. If even one part malfunctions, the whole machine begins to break down.

Likewise, you need your crew to work together in order to keep the machine that is your company pushing ahead. Without that symbiosis, you’ll eventually come to a standstill. Keeping that in mind, following these tips will help facilitate an increase of teamwork among your staff.

Encourage casual socializing.
Okay, we get it. Not everyone is going to want to meet up to hang with their colleagues outside of business hours. But that doesn’t mean you can’t come up with ways for your staff to get to know each other on a more personal level. Organizing off-site team-building activities or planning company-wide (or department-wide, depending on the size of your company) lunches can be excellent opportunities for your crew to get to know each other outside of the confines of their work-related to-do lists. This type of interpersonal bonding oftentimes carries over into day-to-day office life and helps increase trust and respect.

Clearly designate roles.
Even if you’re a relaxed sort of person and want that reflected in the way you run your office, it’s essential to have a definitive outline of everyone’s roles and responsibilities. It’s virtually impossible to expect your team to work together if it’s unclear what each person is ultimately supposed to do. You’ll either end up with a lot of confused staff members or you may even find yourself with one or two people that are disproportionately delegating tasks to others, creating animosity that can easily begin to run rampant.

Set realistic, tangible goals.
Give your team something real to work toward. Despite the fact that everyone has different job responsibilities, if you let them know that the company has a specific goal to reach and that they all play a role in helping the company reach it, there’s ultimately no choice but to work together in order to cross the finish line. Anyone that wants to be successful in their own position will quickly realize their success is dependent on the company’s success, and the company’s success necessitates collaboration among all parties involved.

Resist the urge to micro-manage.
Perhaps you’re the type that always wants to make sure everything is in perfect order. Likely, that acute attention to detail contributed to your path toward entrepreneurship. But when it comes to day-to-day operations, you have to put your faith in the team you put together, trust that they have the company’s (and your) best interest at heart, and resist the urge to interfere. Without you interjecting yourself into every step of the process, employees feel that level of trust increase and also become more empowered to collaborate with each other on ways to best get the job done and further prove their value to you.

Lead by example.
This is probably the most important rule on the entire list. You can’t expect that your staff will be encouraged to work symbiotically if you’re not doing the same. Sure, you’re the big boss, but you’re also the most vested in the success of the company, so it’s your responsibility to work with your team to make sure business is running smoothly, voices are being heard, and that your role in the company is seen by everyone. Most importantly, this delivers the message that you’re not just the person at the top delegating orders to everyone else; it reminds them that you’re all a part of the same team.

With just a few simple adjustments, your team will start to naturally develop better teamwork habits that will ultimately contribute to the continued success and growth of your company.

April Fools’ Day

Hopefully, no one got you too good this year. The unofficial holiday of pranksters passed with the shift of the calendar from March to April. Sometimes pranks are fun, like in this list Forbes put together to celebrate the day. Other times — not so much.

As fun as the spaghetti incident from that Forbes article may have been, with pranks there is the potential for an Orson Welles–style scaring. We’re sure the percentage of people who were fooled by Welles’ radio hoax didn’t appreciate the ruse then nearly as much as the rest of us who know of it today. Being deceived isn’t always a laughing matter, but that holds even truer when money is on the line.

A company with a fleet of vehicles certainly can’t afford to be deceived by what’s happening in the field. While Orson Welles’ radio performance of “War of the Worlds” may have caused panic among some of his listeners, the ramifications for a business can be much more costly. As we learned from Jeff Boone of Napa Auto Parts in Louisiana, a large fleet can waste as much as $20,000 a year in gas by idling. You can’t let yourself get fooled into wasting that much money.

When it comes to your business, a sure way to guard against being caught off guard is by having clear visibility into your company. With Actsoft, we can offer management the ability to track a fleet of vehicles with precision. It allows companies to plan the optimal routes for drivers and monitor vehicles on a map via GPS. Businesses can receive scheduled reports that let you know if users spend too much time idling, constantly go off route, clock in or out at undesired times, and if drivers are speeding. Knowing these metrics streamlines the efficiency of your business’s fleet.

A little prank here or there isn’t the worst thing in the world; no Martians have landed in New Jersey. However, it’s imperative to know exactly what is happening behind the scenes of your business or else risk being bamboozled by your bottom line, which is no laughing matter. Make sure your company is making the most of each day and running as efficiently as possible.

How to Maintain a Healthy Work-Life Balance

When is the last time you shut yourself off? The last time you really shut yourself off? And by this we mean, at the end of a long day at work — whether you’re in the back office or out in the field — you truly just left work behind. When you packed up for the weekend, you resisted the pressing urge to check your emails. Or when you booked that much-anticipated vacation, you closed your inbox and trusted in your team to get the job done while you’re away enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Think long and hard. More likely than not, you’re hard-pressed to remember when this happened. Or at least when it happened consistently.

Today we have an increasingly difficult time separating ourselves from work. There are a lot of reasons for this, but technology plays a huge role. We’re all so connected, it’s easier than ever to stay involved no matter where you are or what time of day it is.

At Actsoft, it’s our mission to streamline your company’s processes to help transform it into the best, most efficient, well-oiled machine it can be. And we do that through our cutting-edge software that, in part, keeps you connected to your team from anywhere on the globe. This technology can make vast improvements to your bottom line and productivity goals and, though it can keep you connected at all times, we also see the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

The beauty of our software is that it also allows other team members the opportunity to actively manage the same day-to-day activities you can keep tabs on. Plus, everything is logged in the system — not to mention, you can set up reports to run on just about everything you can imagine — so all of that information will be there for you when you log back into the system.

All that being said, if you find that maintaining a healthy work-life balance isn’t exactly your strongest suit, we have some tips that can introduce a little equilibrium into your routine.

Create a schedule.
List out all the things you need/want to accomplish each week. This includes work/meetings, exercise, family time, etc. Schedule everything into your calendar, starting with the high-priority items first. (And yes, even throw some quiet downtime into the mix.) Commit to keeping this schedule just as you would when you confirm meetings for work.

Find shorter alternatives.
We get it. Things come up. Let’s say you make it a goal to enjoy one relaxing meal with friends each week, but you become bogged down with an exceptionally busy couple of days at the office. Try to make time for quick drinks or a coffee date, instead. It’ll take a little less time, but at least you’ll still be able to decompress.

Just say no.
Establishing a healthy work-life balance doesn’t mean you need to fill up your calendar with things to do with other people. Alone time plays a big part in this as well. So even if your schedule is open one night, don’t feel obligated to say yes if a friend or coworker asks you to go out somewhere. It’s perfectly acceptable (and encouraged) to decline in lieu of a quiet night at home.

Pick a time to leave and stick to it.
It can be easier said than done, but sometimes speaking a thing out loud helps make it actually happen. Early on in the day, decide on your target departure time and make it known. (e.g. “I need to leave at 6 today so if you need anything from me, please reach out by 4.” This helps commit you to actually leaving on time, and ideally, it means your colleagues will respect that hard stop time.

Manage your workday efficiently.
It can be difficult to set aside time for leisure if you aren’t making the most of your workday. Are you so inundated with meetings that you can’t focus on actual work until you get home? Whittle away the number of meetings you attend. Delegate to others and then simply have quick updates sent to you. Find ways that allow you to maximize your daytime hours so you can take back the weeknights and weekends.

Trust in others.
Perhaps one of the most important things to remind yourself is that, even if you’re the owner of a business, it’s perfectly fine to leave most of the day-to-day operations in the hands of your very capable staff. You chose them for a reason, so have faith that they’ll keep your business running smoothly when you’re not there.

With just a few changes, you can truly transform your entire routine. Starting off by introducing our waste-eliminating software is a great first step. With its ability to refine your daily operations and automate once-lengthy processes, you’ll fast be on your way to a much more manageable schedule.

The rest is up to you.

How to Stay Happy at Work

Did you realize that the majority of adults will spend one-third of their lives at work? This isn’t limited to just the United States. That’s the average for around the entire world. Since we spend so much of our time contributing to the success of the companies we work for, doesn’t it make sense to put forth the effort to make that experience an enjoyable one?

Rather than just passively going through the motions day in and out, there are a few steps you can take to help keep yourself happy while at work. Just as staying on top of even the most seemingly minor details is essential to doing any job safely, efficiently, and effectively, making small efforts here and there can drastically affect your outlook each time you clock in for the day.

Love what you do.
It almost goes without saying — but we’re saying it anyway — that when you have a passion for your job, whether you’re in the field or holding down the fort back at the office, you are inherently happier. Work feels like less of a chore and more like you’re working toward a personal goal.

Stay organized.
This may not seem like it would rank high on the list of things that keep a person happy at work, but think about it. Unnecessary clutter, discombobulated inboxes, and a general feeling of chaos permeating your workspace can make each moment utterly stressful. We’ve spoken about the importance of keeping organized before. By minimizing the disorder, you’re able to accomplish tasks faster, keep on track, and it also helps eliminate the constant worry that comes when you’re so frazzled, it’s impossible to maintain any peace of mind.

Personalize your space.
If you work in a setting where you have your own dedicated space, bring in some personal effects to make that otherwise uninspired workspace a little homier. This could be a couple of photos or just some décor that helps transform your corner of the office into something more comfortable, welcoming, and inviting.

Leave personal drama at home.
We get it. Everyone has a life outside of work. And that life often has its own sets of real problems that can come up. While it can be difficult (or sometimes impossible) to completely forget about your worries, it’s important not to let them keep you bogged down while at work. It’s sort of like how you do your best to leave work behind when you go home, except the other way around.

Keep active.
It might seem like weird advice when it comes to the workplace, but if you have a particularly sedentary job, it’s important to get up and move around from time to time. Get that blood flowing. Any form of exercise, even if it’s just a lap or two around the office a couple of times a day, releases endorphins which directly contribute to feelings to happiness.

Take vacations.
More than half of all Americans threw away vacation days in 2017. Reasons for the lack of use vary from feelings of guilt to anxiety about work piling up while away. But any healthy work environment actively encourages everyone to use their allotted time. Taking regular breaks from work — breaks in which you are truly disconnected from the happenings of the office — are important to your mental wellbeing. Going on vacation recharges you and improves both your mood in the office and your job performance.

Going to work is a fact of life that is unavoidable for most of us. But by taking a few extra steps to change your approach, you can help to shape it into something that you truly enjoy doing each and every day.

How to Manage Difficult Behavior at Work

Let’s face it. No matter what we all would like to believe about the place we work, there is bound to be conflict in the office. It might be clashing of strong personalities with starkly different viewpoints on how things should be done or (unfortunately) the occasional worker who is consistently at odds with others. When these types of issues rise up among staff, it’s up to you to redirect them to a more amicable path.

We’ve discussed how to approach conflict in the past from a management perspective, but what happens when the issue at hand lies with steadily difficult behavior, rather than one-off instances that can be resolved and moved on from? What do you do when faced with a team member who repeatedly presents off-putting behavior that negatively impacts others?

Now, your inclination may be to resort to swiftly eliminating the problem. While termination can certainly be one solution, it shouldn’t necessarily be the go-to method. For starters, the so-called difficult person may otherwise be a tremendous asset to your company. Additionally, they may not even realize that their behavior is creating discord.

At the same time, it’s still important to be on top of this type of conflict, particularly when it’s consistent, because dissonance among your staff not only produces unpleasant working conditions (even for those not directly involved), but it also is a catalyst for sub-par performance, which affects your bottom line.

Since we’re all about helping you maximize your workforce’s potential in order to make your business as smooth-running and profitable as possible, we thought we’d pass along some advice for how best to approach these types of sensitive situations.

Listen to them.
Let’s say someone is consistently negative; it can put a real damper on the mood. Though we all may want to focus on the positive, it’s important to hear this person out. They could very well have a legitimate complaint and feel that nobody has listened to them. And so, it festers. Listen to them. Ask them questions. Determine if their negativity stems from a work-related issue that you may not have known about, but that needs to be addressed. If not, let them know how their negative attitude is adversely affecting the team and put them on a path toward more positive behavior.

Approach respectfully, not confrontationally.
There are certain behaviors that can truly be disruptive to the workplace. It may be something as simple as listening to music too loud, or it might be a more sensitive subject, like hygiene issues. Or maybe they’re dressing in a way you feel doesn’t best represent the company, though it may technically fall within the dress code. Whatever the issue may be, it’s best to address the person directly, though respectfully, and make sure there’s a clear understanding of adjustments that need to be made.

Put people on a path to success.
Difficult behavior can abruptly end a person’s career path within a certain business. Make sure the employee knows they have the opportunity to get back on track and truly pave a road to future success with the company … if they can successfully modify their day-to-day conduct. Ultimately, most people want to be successful and, more often than not, if they know they’re jeopardizing that, they’ll adjust to accommodate.

Don’t add fuel to the fire.
We know, sometimes it’s easier (and more fun) to be the type of boss that is super chummy with all your staff. While it’s great to have that type of rapport, there needs to be a line of separation at some point. If certain members of your team take to ragging on others for, say, the aforementioned disruptive behavior — particularly if they’re taking things too far — don’t join them. Your job isn’t to be an antagonist. Instead, nip that behavior in the bud before it gets out of hand, and then address the disruption.

At the end of the day, we all want the workplace — whether you’re in an office, constantly offsite, or a combination of the two — to be an enjoyable place to be. After all, it is where you spend a large chunk of your waking hours. We hope this can help.

Daylight Savings Time

For most of us, our clocks jumped ahead an hour this past weekend. For anyone who may have been awake in the extremely early hours Sunday morning, they entered the Twilight Zone that comes about when the (digital) clock jumps from 1:59 to 3:00 a second later. Technically we all lost an hour from our weekend, so hopefully the most was made with the 47-hour, two-day break from the work week.

Daylight Savings Time was implemented in the United States in 1918, though it took until the 1970s before the majority of the country, except for Arizona, accepted the practice. One of the initial ideas for DST was to “create” more sunlight after work in the summer when the days are longer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The drawback is there’s less daylight after work during the winter when the amount of sunlight during a day is shorter.

You can’t control the amount of time throughout the course of the day or control how much light a day has. Each day has 24 hours and roughly 12 hours of sunlight. DST, however, has shown us that you can manipulate the time in the day to work for you. In a similar way, with Actsoft, businesses have found ways to save precious hours and take full advantage of the workday.

“Actsoft has trimmed a four-hour process down to an hour,” said Craig Clairmount, construction safety manager of Denver Transit Partners’ Eagle P3 Project. “Before switching to Actsoft, data was unreliable. We were struggling to understand exactly what was coming in.”

In the past data transfer lagged because DTP was collaborating with multiple companies. Meeting the aggressive deadlines the collaborative set was difficult due to how long it took to gather and compile data. DTP had 45 different paper forms floating around in the field, but with Actsoft the procedure was streamlined by combining the forms onto one device using Wireless Forms.

You can’t control the length of the day, but you can take control of how the hours are used. We would like to know: What would your company be able to do with three extra hours per day?

The Rise of Luxury Delivery Vans

Not all vehicles are created the same. An F-150 will never beat a Mustang in a race, a Camry won’t outhaul a Tacoma, and an Escalade probably won’t do as well in fuel consumption as a hybrid. There are certain disparities in vehicles that are obvious and aren’t up for debate. But what about this trend of mixing luxury with blue-collar vehicles?

It’s not a new trend, as the New York Times ran a story on the vehicles in 2011, but it’s a trend that still may be hard for many to imagine. These vehicles look like service vans but are larger and infinitely more luxurious. One Business Insider stayed in a luxury van for a week, comparing it to a small apartment.

The trend of utilizing oversized vans customized with lavish amenities has extended its innovation to the office. According to an article from Bloomberg Business, luxury vans are being used as mobile offices to conduct business meetings for CEOs and executives while on long commutes to the office.

Howard Becker, owner of California-based Becker Auto Design, said in an interview for the article with Bloomberg there’s significant revenue in customizing luxury vans for business use.

“Even in the first world, the major metropolitan areas are all behind in infrastructure,” Becker said. “What drives our business is the ability for our customers to get things done even when they’re driving, as opposed to sacrificing that time. The candy red Ferrari is still in the garage for fun on weekends, but they’re thinking, at least on weekdays, ‘I can’t afford to drive myself anymore.'”

To keep the look and feel of having an office like atmosphere inside these luxury vans designers have uniquely designed the vans with Wi-Fi, touchscreen, TVs, and airline pod-style seats, and other amenities can be added.

While they may be of some use for mobile businessmen, do these high-priced vans “on steroids” as the New York Times article referred to them, have any practical use for a fleet owner?

The “apartment on wheels” won’t have a significant impact on large mobile workforces, but there is a “Goldilocks zone” for van size. The Mercedes-Benz Metris is considered to be a van that is just right for fleet owners. Mercedes-Benz has a division of its company dedicated to making service vans and FleetOwner reports that people within the company believe the Metris is their best work.

The Metris is a mid-sized van that has a 5,000-pound towing capacity which is 50% more payload capacity than smaller Mercedes-Benz vans and 45% more cargo volume in a vehicle that can fit into a garage. While the larger luxury vans may take up half a city block, the Metris is efficient for its size. The Metris is powered by a 208-horsepower 4-cylinder engine with a 7-speed transmission.

These vehicles are certainly a high priority for whoever purchases them and can be targeted for theft, like any other service vehicle. If an individual or business is going to invest in such a lavish vehicle, it needs to be protected. One certain way to ensure the safety of these mammoth machines is with an industry-leading asset-tracking software that can be used in conjunction with the vehicle like what is offered at Actsoft.

At the price of $25,995 for mid-sized vans like the Metris, a fleet of service vehicles from a company synonymous with luxury may not be out of the question for some companies. Don’t expect any plumbers to roll around town with a mobile house to fix bathrooms, but performance and luxury don’t have to be mutually exclusive within the service industry or for businessmen on the go.

5 Tips for Better Communication at Work

It doesn’t matter if ten percent of your workforce is in the field or if 100 percent of it is. One of the top attributes that contributes to the success or any business is clear and effective communication. Think about it for a minute. How can you expect to successfully deliver a product if the people responsible for its creation can’t even manage to maintain a dialogue that keeps everyone operating on the same page? (Hint: You can’t.)

With that in mind, we thought we’d offer a little advice on how to more effectively communicate with your team

Be crystal clear.
We get it. This seems like obvious non-advice but work with us here. More often than not, miscommunications happen because of gaps, left-out information, or even nonverbal cues that contradict the actual message being delivered. Make sure you are relaying all pertinent information, clearly and concisely. And if speaking in person, versus through an email, mind those facial expressions and gestures that could, say, suggest that you really don’t feel strongly about what you’re saying.

Listen to your team.
This is probably the most important tip of all. While it may not seem like a tip that necessarily involves you actually communicating with anyone, taking the time to listen to your staff — actually hearing what they have to say — sends an extremely powerful message. It’s one thing for an employer to speak about having an open-door policy and an entirely different matter to see it in action. Whether it’s office grievances or ideas for process improvement, let them not only be heard but show that you are listening. You can achieve this by repeating certain talking points back and asking questions.

Ask questions.
Like we mentioned above, asking questions helps to really demonstrate to your staff that you’re actually listening to them when they talk. But it also helps to clarify any confusion there may be, assuring that you are all on the same page. However, when asking questions, make sure not to veer off to another topic altogether. Stay focused on the subject at hand.

Approach conflict from all angles.
It’s almost impossible to avoid some sort of conflict amongst colleagues. No two minds work the same and, at one time or another, different viewpoints are going to clash. What matters is how conflicts are resolved. As a leader, be sure to hear both sides of the equation, keep an open mind, and don’t play favorites. It’s important to maintain a high level of diplomacy and help all parties involved come to some sort of resolution so everyone can move forward.

Avoid discussing divisive topics.
We’ve told you about the negative side of discussing politics in the workplace, but politics isn’t the only taboo topic of conversation at work. Bold statements about personal beliefs, such as religion, or even thoughts on hot-button topics in the news, like a highly controversial criminal trial, for example, can lead to heated debates that are best left outside of the office. The last thing you want is for unrelated personal viewpoints to get in the middle of people’s abilities to effectively do their jobs.

With a little finessing, anyone can mold themselves into a model communicator. It all comes down to being willing to put in the effort and make some changes that ultimately help the business as a whole move forward.

6 Ways to Build a Successful Business

Contrary to popular belief, creating a successful business doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time and effort to build and then maintain success. In today’s business world, having time is a luxury that most people, including owners, don’t have. So how does a growing business thrive, survive, and become successful in a world where there’s so little time? Easy. Success is built over time. It may take a few years, or even a decade, to reach the pinnacle of successfulness, but it’s all worth it in the end. To succeed in business today, you need to be flexible, and have good planning and organizational skills. Many people start a business thinking that they’ll turn on their computers or open their doors and start making money, only to find it is much more difficult than they thought.

Here, six easy ways to help build the successful business that you’ve always wanted.

Understand your Brand
Know your brand more than your logo. By knowing your brand, you will know what you do and how you do it. You’ll even know what your customer interactions are like, and what type of information you should share on your social media channels. The concept of a brand extends far beyond just your company logo. It includes your business’s core values and every interaction you have with customers and suppliers. In effect, your brand creates and maintains your reputation and so reflects your customers’ experiences with your organization.

Stand Out
What makes you stand out from your competition? Standing out means that you have to find a different means to make your product more irresistible than your competitors. Once you figure out what sets your products apart from the competitors, weave your differentiators into your company’s marketing messages.

Marketing
Your marketing material should connect to the needs of your audience. You’ll want to develop and determine your niche, so that you can know who you are marketing to. It is critical that you know who your audience is so you can determine the best way to reach them. Some products and services are geared toward a wide audience, while others target a more specific market. You need to know as much about your audience as possible.

Have Great Products and Service
Word of mouth is often a great lead generator for getting more sales. Having top-notch products and services that people can talk about is a critical part of your brand. Refine your product, test it out, and then refine some more. Be sure to always put developing your product first, not the money.

Respond to Pain Points
Think about the struggles and challenges your customers face. Every successful business has products or services that respond to a customer’s biggest and most important needs. Our suite of solutions, for example, addresses the pain points of companies that manage mobile employees. We provide companies with the ability to send out recurring work orders, email notifications, manage timesheets, execute workflows, and much more. Since we know our customers, we’re able to build products that make it easy for them to manage their mobile employees. Make sure you know what problems your customers face most, so your products will be needed.

Communicating the Brand Values to Employees
Many companies fail to spread their brand’s way of thinking. The soul of the company may be totally clear to the founder, but that doesn’t mean it’s clear to the employees. Remember that your branding isn’t only for management, but everyone who is a part of the company should be able to understand and communicate the branding.
