How Actsoft Solutions Help Improve Your Bottom Line

With every new innovation we add to our solutions, we’re continuing to make things easier, more efficient, and more connected for your business. And all three of these aspects working together result in a major boost to your company’s bottom line annually, with reductions in costs such as:

Fuel

Managing a cost-conscious workforce isn’t exactly simple, but it’s easier to do with GPS Tracking. Our solutions provide near real-time updates on your fleet vehicles’ activities, allowing you to be notified of any instances of excessive idling or speeding by your drivers. Equipping your vehicles with devices like the Geotab GO9 also remains a great way to integrate Encore, our flagship solution, with intuitive hardware that provides diverse insight on how your vehicles are routinely being operated. When it comes to fleet management, use this tandem of software and hardmount technology to identify and curb costly practices your mobile employees may be unintentionally conducting.

Paper

Antiquated processes like filling out paper documents and manually delivering them can be largely eliminated with Wireless Forms. Our applications provide the tools you need to go completely digital with all of your company’s documentation, helping to reduce potential costs associated with paper usage like errors from manual data entry, high purchasing expenses, and time spent driving paperwork back to the office.

Overtime

Actsoft’s Timekeeping feature gives businesses like yours the ability to clamp down on unnecessary overtime payouts with mobile time-punches. Your remote employees can clock in and out using a smartphone or tablet from our Encore solution’s single integrated portal, allowing them to track start and stop times while working with greater accuracy. Over the course of weeks and years, all those saved minutes from more accurate time-punches can have a sustainable positive impact on your company’s bottom line.

How Football Player Speed Tracking Is Similar To Fleet Analytics

This past Sunday, Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb ran for 165 yards and three touchdowns, helping his team secure a 40-25 win over the Baltimore Ravens. On his most explosive run of the day, an 88-yard bolt to the end zone, Chubb reached a ridiculous top speed of 21.95 miles per hour, per Next Gen Stats.

The National Football League has been experimenting with new ways to track player performance, measuring advanced statistics using cutting-edge technology. Thanks to concepts like ultra-accurate speed clocking and catch percentage measurements on tight-window throws, insightful data is readily available on how players are performing, and as a result, the performance analysis process is more detailed than it’s ever been.

At Actsoft, our applications’ GPS Tracking feature mirrors many of the innovative technologies the NFL uses to track routes and top speeds by its players on long touchdown runs. Our tracking solutions are able to record the top speeds and route histories of each individual vehicle in your organization’s fleet using a combination of hardware and software, providing a powerful new way for you to regulate operations in the field. From your Actsoft solution’s dashboard, see a live view map of your vehicles in near real-time, as well as the directions they’re traveling. Advanced statistics on stop times, route histories, and speeds traveled by your mobile employees in company vehicles are also available to managers, allowing your business team to enhance quality, safety, and efficient fuel usage. If certain staff members are traveling faster than you’d like for them to while en route to an assignment, use Alerts to receive  notifications any time your customized thresholds for speeding are exceeded.

With advanced technology that collects and reports data on your fleet’s activities, Actsoft solutions are designed to help your managers stay in control of the mobile workforce they employ. Use our tools to increase team accountability by identifying excessive speeding and unnecessary stops by members of your remote teams while they’re on their way to scoring you more business.

How Excellent Communication Enhances Project Management

For any team project, effective communication is essential. Coordinating various tasks that need to be accomplished is much easier when there’s open communication between staff members and supervisors; however, this can be a struggle to maintain consistently at times.

Requesting feedback from your staff regarding how much work they’ve got on their schedules is an excellent way to encourage honesty, reduce overwhelming feelings for individuals in your organization, and pinpoint the objectives at hand with laser focus. It can also give you the best idea of who has additional availability to take on more work. However, there’s no way to gauge expendable bandwidth without solid communication. David Knight, Actsoft’s vice president of customer experience believes that without clear connectivity, collaborative efforts will become limited for a workforce.

“The key to teamwork is collaboration, which can only be achieved with effective communication,” said Knight. “Effective communication keeps teams on the same page at the same time, but more importantly, helps teams avoid conflicts and misunderstandings, which reduce collaboration.”

If everyone in your company is on the same page, meeting deadlines also becomes infinitely easier. A mission statement is a great way to communicate your business’s vision, uniting your workforce around a central theme that keeps staff up to date with the values and objectives that your organization is striving to accomplish during project execution.

Actsoft’s solutions offer intuitive features to make project management easier through enhanced communication. Intra-Company Messaging and Job Dispatching help keep all aspects of your company in the know by providing platforms to securely transmit key information about jobs in the field, regardless of how far away your mobile employees may be. With the power of our applications, strengthen your business’s communication channels and improve the ways that your team collaborates on its daily projects.

3 Ways Encore’s Traffic Overlay Feature Benefits Businesses

At Actsoft, we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what our applications can do so you can continue to witness high returns on investment. We do this by adding capabilities on a quarterly basis and rolling out enhancements to our application that refine the power of our existing features, creating new ways for you to improve your business plan.

Traffic Overlay is an enhancement we recently made to Encore’s GPS Tracking feature. Providing color-coded glimpses into near real-time traffic patterns, Traffic Overlay helps your supervisors identify and plan for drivers to take routes that are least affected by roadway congestion. Here are some of the key benefits this tool can provide to businesses like yours:

Less idle time

Use Traffic Overlay to reduce the amount of idle time that your company’s drivers must deal with by having them avoid high congestion areas, whenever it may be possible. As sitting idle in traffic takes a toll on the long-term performance of your vehicles and puts unnecessary stress on your remote employees, keeping your fleet mobile can improve equipment longevity and the mental health of your staff.

Faster response times

The time of both your employees and customers is valuable, especially during critical situations. Use Traffic Overlay to enhance punctuality across your workforce and fulfill the needs of your clientele faster, on average. Dispatchers can use the feature to see what routes are clearest, helping field employees get to the job sites they need to be at quickly.

Lower fuel costs

It’s obvious that a 30-minute drive with open roadways is going to burn less gasoline than an hour-long trip spent mostly in bumper-to-bumper traffic. When played out over the course of a year, this disparity can cause your business’s fuel costs to soar if the most efficient routes aren’t being selected beforehand. Traffic Overlay allows your team to increase its savings by displaying congestion levels in near real-time, making it easy to pick routes that are optimal.
