How Sports Dynasties Are Similar to Elite Workforces

One thing that all sports dynasties have in common is that they’re dedicated to maintaining a standard of excellence every single season. Regardless of what sport they’re dominating year in and year out, a combination of elite talent, strong leadership from the coaching staff, and championship-level teamwork are the primary traits responsible for putting the team in a constant position of title contention.

Players on a dynastic team sustain this kind of success by buying in fully to a winning culture, holding themselves and their teammates accountable on a performance-by-performance basis. It’s no secret that it takes hard work to remain at the top, and the same can be said for the employees that comprise an elite mobile workforce.

While you’ve likely acquired all the talent needed to build a productive team, certain inefficiencies in communication and coordination can end up holding your workforce back from becoming the best version of itself possible. Actsoft’s business solutions are designed to help your team achieve and sustain an elite level of performance, so that it can remain a competitive force both now and for years to come.

Communicating on the fly with mobile employees is crucial when it comes to managing efficiently and empowering your staff. By using our solutions to redirect your workers and ensure that every task is being taken care of, you can enhance the reputability of your brand, serve your customers better, and even save money in the process. These benefits help to optimize your business and provide you with a consistent return on investment.

Just as every professional sports franchise has the goal of building an organization that wins championships, your company can use resources like ours to develop a winning team. With Actsoft solutions, kickstart a dynasty of efficiency for your mobile workforce, and help it ascend from an effective level to a truly elite one.

Corporate Growth and Motivating Employees

As any corporation experiences growth, the need to cultivate new leaders within it will naturally exist. For many employees, the prospect of eventually rising to a management role is something that they strive for, and if your organization is continuing to expand, there’s nothing but positive trajectory for everyone.

With corporate growth, however, comes the need to develop the skills of staff. Over time, the valuable traits that each of your employees bring to the table for your business’s success should be identified, refined, and highlighted. Effective management starts with empowering those around you, and routinely motivating them through the progression of their abilities.

If there’s potential for growth within your company, better candidates may be more enticed to take open positions, allowing you to hire only the most impactful people. Individuals that truly make a difference for your organization typically all have strong work ethics, and new positions created during times of expansion can help to put in place additional structure for your organization.

By using Actsoft solutions to help your team flourish, you can provide your employees with clearer paths to success. Features of our digital products like GPS Tracking, Dispatching, and Wireless Forms all continue to play an active role in helping countless businesses reduce the costs of their operations, and maintain higher standards of efficiency. As any company’s bottom line must be in good standing before more employees can be brought on, our solutions can help to increase workforce productivity and efficiency, saving additional funds. New hiring is a huge benefit, and a great sign that growth is occurring. It also leaves room for tenured staff to potentially achieve positions of leadership.

If staff feel empowered to ascend in their careers, the ramifications for your business are huge. Employee productivity as a whole can increase, and you’ll be able to continue effectively growing your company. To gain a better handle on growth, bring down operational costs, and make promoting your team members easier, allow Actsoft’s suite of applications to help.

Stocks, Assets, and Work Site Tracking

For many investors, it’s a common belief that maintaining a diverse financial portfolio is an effective way to minimize risk. To those who follow this strategy, the idea is that holding stocks in multiple different sectors can potentially offset some of the losses that would’ve arisen from having placed all their chips on a single failing investment. Their ownership of shares in a wide array of other better-performing investments may serve as a buoy to the negatives that they’ll inevitably encounter when trading.

That being said, it should come as no surprise that purchasing shares of stocks always carries a certain measure of risk with it, as past returns will never guarantee future market results. However, the potential of compounding interest still entices investors to put their money into the market, and weigh its risks accordingly.

Physical assets that your company might own such as equipment, cargo, and fleet vehicles are all just as much valuable investments as they are functional tools, and with Actsoft solutions, they can be shielded from risk. Features of our software like GPS Tracking and Alerts help your team thoroughly manage its materials, and use them more efficiently in the field by detailing their near real-time locations. Any time you’re unsure of where a particular asset is located, simply open up your Actsoft application and pinpoint it.

Take asset security a step further with Geofences, another feature of our products. Using Geofences, you can draw boundaries around job zones on your solution’s live view map, and monitor any entries or exits of the perimeter by your team’s tracked equipment. Alerts keep administrators informed of work site activity on the fly, and help them verify that company tools are being used properly around the clock.

Never leave the assets that your business requires to chance with our solutions. Once risk has been eliminated from the picture of equipment security, retain peace of mind while your tools are dispersed, and allow some of the most accurate tracking technology available to start saving you money.

Actsoft’s Dream Achievers Program Helps Individuals Succeed

Employees at Actsoft are given the unique privilege to join Dream Achievers, a program that allows them to regularly consult professional life coach Jerry Campbell on any important goals they might have.

The topics of an individual’s goals can vary. In the past, some have included saving to take an international vacation, purchasing a home, learning a new skill, getting into a solid exercise routine, working toward a promotion, or even writing a novel. Whatever the objective is, Campbell is willing to offer up his wealth of experience in budgeting and planning to help our staff members’ dreams become reality.

“The purpose of the Dream Achievers program is really to offer more to Actsoft’s employees than just a job,” Campbell says. “It’s about enjoying their job, enjoying their life, pursuing the things that they want to do, and that they love to do, because that ripples out to their family, their friends, and the other employees.”

Having been with the company for three years, Campbell has chosen to slightly modify the program from its original version, which followed a strict workbook approach to dream planning and accomplishment. Now that it’s been rebranded as Dream Achievers, he’s morphed it into a less rigid format, one where members can now feel more empowered to discuss whatever they want or feel the need to talk about in order to keep moving toward their goals.

“It’s about intentionally pursuing something that you want to go after, and so that’s what the Dream Achievers program offers. It’s the chance to come in, talk about your dreams, and what’s exciting to you,” Campbell says. “Let’s lay out a plan, and let’s be intentional about getting there.”

In addition to helping employees get the most out of their working life, the Dream Achievers program has also helped foster a positive family culture at Actsoft. People holding similar goals and dreams may use it to network with others for support, something that Campbell hopes to see more of in the future.

“What do you hope for? Let’s go after it, and let’s help everyone else in the company do the same thing. As that happens, hope builds, and people get excited, and you can see all the dreams that are being accomplished.”

Dream Achievers is proof that Actsoft is more than just a leader in mobile resource management software. We’re a workplace where phenomenal opportunities are readily available for individuals to take advantage of, helping them grow both professionally and personally.

“[The program is] about helping the person become fulfilled and happy in their job, and then the people around them doing the same thing,” Campbell says. “This is a place of hope, not just work.”

Encore’s New Barcode Scanning Feature is Here!

We’re proud to announce that our premier solution, Encore, has received a powerful new enhancement to its Wireless Forms feature! With barcode scanning, you can now use the cameras of your workforces’ mobile devices to scan QR codes and barcodes.

The applications of this feature are practical for virtually any company that regularly needs to fulfill checklists, manage inventory, and accurately track employee hours. By simplifying processes and eliminating the need to purchase separate barcode scanning devices, Actsoft has made it possible for your business to consolidate, and save even more resources.

Inventory Management

Experience improved efficiency when it comes to keeping track of inventory. Barcode scanning lets you scan codes to input data into a wireless form, making it easier for your team to take note of any tools that were used and successfully returned throughout the course of a workday. Standardizing the process of inventory management can help to prevent equipment loss, and it also gives your staff a unique advantage by helping them easily identify what parts need to be ordered for a job’s completion.

Timekeeping

Barcode scanning can be used in tandem with Timekeeping, and in doing so, you’re able to verify that your employees are remaining accountable whenever they clock in or out. As long as a wireless form is attached, registered time punches can be accompanied by ID code scans, helping you preserve the integrity of your staff’s timesheet data.

Proof of Work Completion

Companies in multiple different verticals can efficiently document the completion of work and daily work orders with Encore’s barcode scanning enhancement. If your organization must conduct routine inspections at close of business, barcode stickers placed at specific locations can help you verify that workers went to those positions and successfully checked them at the end of the day.

Encore’s barcode scanning tool is yet another example of how we’re constantly looking to make our solution even more practical for the everyday needs of your business. Leave behind expensive barcode scanners, timecard uncertainties, and any inefficiencies surrounding task documentation with our newest update.
