Why Data Encryption Matters

In today’s digital age, data is increasingly valuable. With that, however, comes an even greater necessity to protect it. Hefty fines can be leveled against organizations that fail to adhere to federal regulations on certain data types like Personal Health Information (PHI). Any kind of financial information that becomes compromised can also subject the firm in charge of it to massive data breach payouts.

The answer why is simple: Data is crucial to personal security. The potential damage that leaks or hacks can wreak on anything from privacy to financial health can be devastating to both the customer and the company storing it.

So, if your organization is in charge of keeping data heavily secure, what are some of its options? One of the most cost-effective but secure ones lies with our Encore Vault solution. Along with being backed by mandatory and thorough compliance training for our employees on a routine basis, our application is equipped with a slew of security levels to help you truly lock down client information, including:

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.
