Weathering the Storm: Sanitation Management During the Pandemic

Sanitation companies tasked with cleaning contaminated areas are more essential than ever right now in the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19. However, with an increase in public health awareness comes an increase in workload for these kinds of businesses, which can be especially tough to manage if they don’t currently have a workforce management solution in place. Thankfully, our all-in-one platform, Encore, is able to help cleaning businesses effectively keep their operations under control, even amid a rapid acceleration in demand for their services. These key features of Encore all work together to help sanitation companies like yours work both smarter and safer during this time.

Job Dispatching

For decontamination jobs that require your teams to switch and attend to more severely affected areas on the fly, use Encore’s Job Dispatching feature. Plan out job schedules in advance for certain employees, and if more staff are required at a new, more important location to help disinfect it, easily reroute your personnel as needed to reduce fuel costs and accomplish more work in the same amount of time.

GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking allows your administrators to create extra levels of both transparency and accountability in your workforce, particularly when it comes to critical situations such as the current pandemic. Use this feature to see the locations of clocked-in mobile employees, company vehicles, and sanitation equipment to verify that the correct locations are being serviced, as well as to help ensure staff remain on-task. Monitoring the physical locations of your company’s service vehicles and cleaning tools also adds another layer of security over the valuable things your business needs to successfully run.

Wireless Forms

Track completed work efficiently and electronically with Wireless Forms. Using this feature, it’s easy to create digital versions of all your sanitation company’s documents, such as health checklists, cleaning records, and even billing forms. Form Workflows also allows your staff to pass incomplete documents off digitally from one worker’s device to verify that proper decontamination protocols are being followed. Plus, employees can help lower their risk of accidentally passing on any dangerous contagions using this feature, as they can work together to complete forms by only sending and receiving documents from their individually assigned mobile devices.

In today’s climate, good management is all about resource maximization. Let Encore help your sanitation company make the most of its materials, spend less, stay safer, and serve the public more powerfully.

Weathering the Storm: Healthcare Management During the Pandemic

It’s no secret that many heroes are braving public life to keep serving those of us who are self-quarantining. At the forefront of that fight are the many healthcare professionals helping to tend to patients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re doing our part to help others as best as we can, which is why we want to discuss the ways our software can help those who are still in the field each day, working tirelessly to help flatten the curve. Our software can help healthcare officials complete their duties while also helping keep others as safe as possible. With the Vault version of our software, we’ve taken extra measures to boost the security of our software so that it supports HIPAA compliance, meaning you can be sure that each patient’s confidentiality is safeguarded.

Wireless Forms
By implementing our Wireless Forms, healthcare officials can collect important patient information and send it to administrators for processing without ever running the risk of exposing those in the back office — who may be working remotely or never actually have a need to see patients in person. This allows your “paperwork” to be processed as quickly as possible while minimizing risk.

Mobile Timekeeping
Additionally, to better track your hours, we can give healthcare workers the ability to do this using their mobile devices. So, if you’re a field worker helping patients, you don’t have to stop by the office to begin and end your day. (This not only helps keep administrators safer but also gives field workers more time to devote to the influx of patients.) Our Timekeeping functionality can also pair with many payroll programs, simplifying the payment process.

GPS Tracking
Keep your mobile team members safe by always tracking their whereabouts in near real-time. You’ll also be able to pull a historical breadcrumb trail to view their exact route while on the clock, so if anyone were to get sick, you can easily pull an accounting of where they were and for how long, helping to determine exposure levels.

Job Dispatching
Healthcare workers are exceptionally busy right now and some patients are experiencing worse conditions than others. Job Dispatching lets you assign new work orders to your field workers and/or rearrange the priority based on proximity or urgency. Workers will receive notices right on their mobile devices as updates arise, and administrators can later run reports to better determine how much time is needed for each patient so they can plan accordingly.

We hope that we can play even a small role in helping healthcare workers perform their truly heroic duties amid this pandemic. Working together, we know we’ll be able to make it through this.

Weathering the Storm: Transportation Management During the Pandemic

While the current pandemic has created a drop-off in business for many companies, most that are considered ‘essential’ are working in overdrive right now. It’s been said that in many ways, the trucking industry is the backbone of the American economy, and with the goods that so many desperately need in high demand, companies that do commercial transport are working around the clock to keep grocery stores adequately stocked and the public supplied, as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times together.

To help make things easier for transportation businesses, Actsoft’s all-in-one business solution, Encore, provides essential tools for greater efficiency and productivity. These features help with documentation and data collection in the field, making it simpler than ever to coordinate deliveries, even during a time where resources may be severely strained.

ELD

Our ELD solution is an add-on capability for Encore that’s powered by VisTracks. It helps your transportation business save valuable time by automatically documenting driver logs, as required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In addition to improving time management, ELD on Encore helps reduce accuracy errors when it comes to recordkeeping, reducing your company’s chances to incur expensive regulatory fines.

GPS Tracking

Encore’s multifaceted GPS Tracking feature is different from many other tracking solutions on the market because it’s capable of monitoring handsets, assets, and fleet vehicles. This gives you premier insight daily into the ways your delivery trucks and employees are operating. Plus, use Asset Tracking to keep tabs on cargo containers and better protect the valuable supplies inside them that need to be delivered.

Wireless Forms

Once a delivery has been completed, use Encore’s Wireless Forms feature to efficiently document status updates for management to see. Save on annual paper costs by allowing your transportation company’s administrators (who are back at headquarters) to receive these updates nearly instantly.

Job Dispatching

Make on the fly changes to delivery orders with Encore’s Job Dispatching feature. Any assignment adjustments that are made are automatically sent to drivers’ mobile devices, saving your drivers extra time and enhancing their task efficiency.

These four features of our end-to-end solution can truly improve the ways that your transportation company works. Times are tough, but with the power of Encore, you can save more resources for your team while continuing to powerfully serve those in need.
