The Benefits of Integrated Technology

The businesses of today rely on technology to power their workforces, especially if they’re mobile. Without solutions for managing remote operations, it’s difficult for companies to optimize efficiency and maintain a competitive advantage over other organizations in their industry. The problem, however, lies in the fact that these businesses often times use multiple different applications to handle their various inefficiencies. In doing so, they can end up paying much more for a laundry list of different software licenses, and still not have the same kind of control that a single, end-to-end business application would provide them with. Instead of buying a wireless forms solution, a tracking solution, a dispatching solution, and a timekeeping solution, why not just acquire one that includes all four, plus even more tools to make your business thrive?

At Actsoft, we realize that today’s companies need solutions that don’t add more guesswork and unnecessary costs to their daily processes. That’s why we’ve created Encore, our flagship application for data collection and business management. With Encore, you’ll be able to seamlessly integrate your remote staff’s mobile business devices with your organization’s desktops, and manage from the convenience of an all-in-one solution. Reap benefits like these as a result of integrating your business’s technology, through our most intuitive application’s potential.

Stronger Connectivity

Integration naturally bridges gaps in communication, making connecting with your team easier than ever to do. Encore’s Dispatching and Messaging features provide a seamless environment for effective, on the fly communication, and establish links between the handsets of mobile employees and your office’s backend systems. Save time and money by efficiently rerouting staff as need be, and getting crucial instructions to them quickly.

Accessibility

What more could your business accomplish if it had nearly instant, yet secure access to the valuable data it’s gathered from the field? Integrating technology allows your mobile operations to succeed, and provides your home base with all of the information it requires more efficiently. Wireless Forms on Encore lets you easily create digital copies of all of your business’s most important documents, and enables your employees to submit forms from the field. In doing this, supervisors have faster access to analytics, and can make data-driven decisions for saving revenue, and smarter resource allocation.

How Inefficient Quarterback Play is Similar to Poor Management

Quarterback is far and away the most important role one could have in the game of football, and it’s arguably the most essential position in all of sports. No matter what a football team’s offense does, nearly everything is channeled through its quarterback orchestrating efficiency on a routine basis. Elite signal callers are experts at managing multiple responsibilities when directing scoring drives, and tend to make their best plays during high-pressure situations, while thousands spectate.

Generational talents at quarterback, like the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, can make up for personnel deficiencies on their team by elevating the effectiveness of players around them, and using an extensive knowledge of various pre-snap coverages to audible out of bad plays before they even have a chance to develop. They’re more than capable of putting their team on their back and carrying it to victory during less-than-ideal situations, especially whenever not a lot of extra help is available.

In addition to being tasked with directing excellent passing attacks, NFL quarterbacks are typically anointed as the faces of billion-dollar franchises, entities that are just as much businesses as they are ball clubs. Signal callers at the professional level become highly marketed for jersey sales, advertisements, and other forms of revenue streams. Quarterbacks that struggle at the professional level, however, often times cripple their team by negating effective drives with costly turnovers, and it’s no secret why when they don’t receive nearly the same kinds of lucrative contracts and endorsement deals that the superstars do. The game and position is constantly changing, but one thing will always remain essential: a need for long-term efficiency.

In this respect, running a business is in a lot of ways similar to quarterbacking an NFL team. Without a foundation of efficient, low-mistake management, today’s companies aren’t able to sustain success. The same goes for any NFL offense that’s under the guidance of a franchise gunslinger.

The best NFL quarterbacks are proficient at making adjustments, based on what they’re seeing from an opposing defense in near real-time. Much like managing a company with mobile employees, good quarterbacks are also versatile leaders through efficient communication with their team members. Features of Actsoft solutions such as Dispatching help businesses communicate better on the fly, and relay important updates or changes in workflows to mobile employees quickly.

In recent years, most NFL teams are relying on a throw-first offensive strategy, which enhances the importance of having a competent player under center even more. Learn how Actsoft solutions can help you better quarterback your team, and build a more productive, versatile, and efficiently-managed business today.

Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in Transportation

In the wake of a brutal natural disaster, supplies are in critical demand. Before power restoration and rebuilding comes the provision of emergency aid to those in need, which often times comes in the form of bottled water, medicine, and food deliveries to shelters, and the transportation industry plays an essential role in accomplishing this.

Bringing goods to areas that have been hit hard by a volatile weather system isn’t always easy, as road blockages, flood waters, felled power lines, abnormal traffic patterns, and other obstructions can impair efficient delivery. However, transportation companies that offer assistance in scenarios like this can use Actsoft solutions to mitigate operational hindrances, and better help people that have been caught in some of nature’s most destructive potential.

GPS Tracking

Even after a storm has passed, there’s still a significant level of danger in reaching areas that have been damaged by blistering winds, torrential downpours and structure-devouring storm surges. Our GPS Tracking feature helps transportation companies monitor the near real-time positions of their employees, fleet vehicles, and assets, and enhances driver safety by keeping administrators constantly in-the-know about their locations. Should an emergency occur on the job, supervisors can know exactly where any of their dispersed employees are, making emergency situations much more manageable.

Dispatching

Mobile technology and Actsoft innovations work together to bring dispersed workforces into a more connected state. If adjustments in delivery assignments need to be made on the fly, our Dispatching tool allows administrators to contact their drivers nearly instantly through integrated desktop-to-smartphone communications. With relief efforts requiring high levels of flexibility, Dispatching is a valuable asset for 21st century transportation companies to have in their repertoire, especially during times of catastrophic weather.

Traffic Overlay

After a weather event like a hurricane has ceased, it may take a while for traffic patterns return to semblances of normalcy. Emergency deliveries, however, don’t have time to wait when the public is in dire need of survival supplies. Using Traffic Overlay, a recent enhancement to our Encore solution, organizations can see near real-time congestion patterns on their live view GPS map, and then select the most efficient routes for their drivers to take to affected areas.

Extreme weather phenomena are often unpredictable. Let the power of our solutions revolutionize your transportation business into the most productive, efficient, and versatile version of itself, and provide disaster-stricken areas with unparalleled assistance during aftermath recovery.
