Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in Construction

Actsoft solutions help to power forward the construction industry by bringing dispersed workforces together. Three of the most important things for effective building strategies are consistently meeting deadlines, ensuring that worker safety remains accounted for, and protecting assets around the clock. All of these critical objectives can be attained using the capabilities of our software.

Stay right on schedule

Once a building project has been planned and announced, the clock is immediately ticking on its completion. One of the best ways for contractors to establish a sterling reputation with their customers is to consistently deliver on project timelines, and features of our solutions like Wireless Forms and Mobile Timekeeping make it easy to do. By allowing workers to complete more of their daily tasks while away from the home office, these tools help companies save time and money effectively.

Enhance work site safety

Construction work often times requires heavy machinery, which can carry a certain degree of danger. Actsoft’s GPS Tracking tool makes the pinpointed locations of employees readily available to see, so companies know exactly where their staff are in case of a critical situation. Dispatching is another powerful feature of our software that can help to keep employees safe, as it enables construction businesses to send out requests for assistance nearly instantly via wireless notifications, whenever an emergency might occur.

Keep important equipment secure

Heavy machinery like bulldozers, cranes, and crawler excavators can cost thousands of dollars to replace if lost. Thankfully, contracting companies can use Actsoft’s Asset Tracking technology to be constantly in-the-know about where their important construction equipment is. The ability to leave machinery dispersed in the field overnight gives businesses an immense amount of extra potential for savings, and with custom alerts for unauthorized movements, contracting businesses can rest assured that their assets are monitored around the clock.

Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in the Public Sector

Public sector entities can experience mission-critical situations on a routine basis during daily operations, making timeliness and attention to detail imperative. As a result, for government-sponsored agencies such as law enforcement, city utilities, inspectors, and parks and recreation, it’s always a necessity to have clear lines of communication, strong insight, and effective mobile workforce management strategies in place. In the wake of natural disasters and other types of emergencies, solutions that help to reduce any points of inefficiency can be key to accelerating response times, and providing better service to the public.

Actsoft has taken a versatile approach to our digital solutions’ development process, particularly when it comes to what public sector jobs specifically need for success out of an application. Our library of features has been engineered to encompass everything a department could possibly require for sustained efficiency, simplified processes, and better task delegation. Here’s a few of our solutions’ most applicable features to the public sector:

Dispatching

Take the guesswork out of coordinating your mobile workforce with Dispatching. Directing remote employees to new job sites via smartphones or tablets can increase responsiveness to critical scenarios, and make communication between dispatchers and first responders easier than ever to maintain.

Wireless Forms

With Wireless Forms, the hassles of traditional forms are no more. Allow Actsoft to help transition all of your paper documents onto a clean, digital system that works for your organization, and receive crucial data from the field nearly instantly. Electronic storage is able to safeguard sensitive information, and also help to ensure that it never gets lost by accident.

Mobile Timekeeping

Employees can clock in and out remotely using this powerful feature, and when used in tandem with GPS Tracking, they’re able to safely keep business vehicles at their homes overnight. Save on fuel costs, reduce unnecessary trips back to the office for clocking in, and enhance workforce productivity with Mobile Timekeeping.

GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking allows for employees and fleet vehicles to be surveilled around the clock. Squad cars, utility vehicles, and other assets can be monitored via satellite-enabled tracking, making GPS pinpointing a vital tool that helps to facilitate strong team direction on the fly.

Managing the Effects of Severe Weather Using Modern Solutions

In Tampa, Florida, Actsoft’s home city, intense weather can at times be commonplace. During the spring and summertime especially, pulses of violet-colored lightning frequently slice across the waterfront’s horizon, illuminating the bay’s rippling water at the edges of Tampa’s Riverwalk district. The city is commonly referred to as the “lightning capital of the USA” due to its high frequency of thunderstorms, but it’s more of a marketing phrase, as another Floridian city, Fort Myers, currently holds the science-backed title of America’s most lightning-struck city.

Regardless, the Tampa Bay region still receives more than its fair share of inclement weather on a yearly basis. Tampa’s National Hockey League team is even named after the bolts of electricity that accompany the torrential downpours and growling, charcoal-colored thunderclouds that characterize an average Gulf of Mexico–fueled storm.

These run-of-the-mill thunderstorms typically don’t last very long and only have minimal wind gusts accompanying them, which is something that Tampa Bay residents have grown accustomed to dealing with regularly in everyday life. Any widespread devastation that larger, more powerful weather phenomena like hurricanes and tornadoes can cause obviously isn’t typical for these types of routine showers. However, if and when a brutal natural disaster does make landfall on a major metropolis, Actsoft is there to help its businesses restore, repair, and assist those who are in need.

In disaster-stricken areas where maintaining clear communication is a constant challenge, our solutions can especially help companies in utilities, construction, and field service foster strong systems of workforce cohesiveness. With elements such as downed power lines and catastrophic flooding causing glaring safety concerns for both workers and civilians alike, tools within our software such as GPS Tracking allow for the positions of mobile employees to be reported back to a company’s home office in near real-time. This keeps administrators constantly in-the-know about their employees’ whereabouts during working hours, and makes pinpointing their locations easier in the context of emergency situations. A powerful tandem of GPS Tracking and Mobile Dispatching also makes sending out assistance as streamlined and efficient as possible, particularly for businesses that are tasked with cleanup efforts after a catastrophic weather event.

During critical situations where restoring power grids and infrastructure are the highest priority, companies in construction, utilities, and field service can all lean on Actsoft solutions to optimize the productivity and efficiency of their mobile employees. While certain factors such as severe storms will never be completely unpreventable, the developments that we’ve made in management technology can help workforces with mitigating aftermath and restoring cities faster than ever to regular sustainability.
