Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in the Public Sector

Public sector entities can experience mission-critical situations on a routine basis during daily operations, making timeliness and attention to detail imperative. As a result, for government-sponsored agencies such as law enforcement, city utilities, inspectors, and parks and recreation, it’s always a necessity to have clear lines of communication, strong insight, and effective mobile workforce management strategies in place. In the wake of natural disasters and other types of emergencies, solutions that help to reduce any points of inefficiency can be key to accelerating response times, and providing better service to the public.

Actsoft has taken a versatile approach to our digital solutions’ development process, particularly when it comes to what public sector jobs specifically need for success out of an application. Our library of features has been engineered to encompass everything a department could possibly require for sustained efficiency, simplified processes, and better task delegation. Here’s a few of our solutions’ most applicable features to the public sector:

Dispatching

Take the guesswork out of coordinating your mobile workforce with Dispatching. Directing remote employees to new job sites via smartphones or tablets can increase responsiveness to critical scenarios, and make communication between dispatchers and first responders easier than ever to maintain.

Wireless Forms

With Wireless Forms, the hassles of traditional forms are no more. Allow Actsoft to help transition all of your paper documents onto a clean, digital system that works for your organization, and receive crucial data from the field nearly instantly.

Geofences and City Construction

Constructing the megalopolises of today requires some of the most cutting-edge technology available. In a time where space in downtown areas is limited and building strategies have been trending upward rather than outward, the importance of modern tools to contractors can’t be understated.

These state-of-the-art tools come in many different forms, including both digital and mechanical ones. Workforces that are tasked with the responsibility of putting together an entire city’s infrastructure from the ground up need everything from heavy machinery to workforce management solutions continuously at their disposal, in order to complete projects in timely fashion.

On the workforce management side, Actsoft can help construction companies pinpoint the locations of their assets, fleet vehicles, and mobile workers in crowded urban environments. Features of our digital solutions such as Geofences allow for the establishment of up to 30 customized points around remote work zones, clearly defining the perimeters of job sites via GPS.

Using the power of Geofences, contracting workforces can further optimize their productivity levels, and provide near real-time information on what’s truly happening in the field back to their headquartered administrators. Once geofence boundaries have been set, businesses are able to use them in conjunction with other Actsoft features such as Alerts and Asset Tracking.

Companies dealing predominantly in high-rise and downtown construction in particular significantly benefit from our asset monitoring systems, because they’re versatile. Any time a piece of equipment enters or exits a geofence’s set boundaries, Alerts will automatically notify designated individuals within their organizations. And, as the shapes of geofences are highly customizable, any obstacles to plotting accurate site boundaries are out of sight and out of mind. Irregularly-shaped geofences in space-deficient city construction can be precisely drawn to contain everything that a business needs, and nothing it doesn’t.

Allow Actsoft to help your construction company improve the security of its valuable equipment, and ensure that your team is where it needs to be during routine workdays. With our solutions’ Geofences feature, explore all of the benefits that modern GPS technology is readily offering to your workforce.

The Versatile Solutions of GPS Technology

The creation of a Global Positioning System (GPS) has brought extra convenience and powerful business applications alike into the lives of modern-day people. Things such as locating lost equipment, estimating lengths of travel, and even visiting unfamiliar places have become so much easier to accomplish through the concept of GPS, and the system’s versatility makes it one of the most impressive resources available in the digital age.

How does GPS work?

The GPS network is comprised of multiple satellites that are kept in perpetual orbit around Earth, and each one of these satellites transmits information to GPS receivers on Earth’s surface. This data is then used to calculate the positions of receivers in near real-time by comparing the time a signal was transmitted from a satellite to the time it was collected. A difference in time elapsed gives the receiving device an accurate perception of how far away the satellite it originally accepted the ping from is, allowing for precise locations on a digital map to be plotted.

Actsoft’s solutions

Many of our applications use GPS in order to let businesses see the near real-time locations and activities of their mobile workforces. In doing this, Actsoft’s tracking software can help to increase the efficiency of company operations, while lowering costs for an organization at the same time. Valuable equipment and assets that are scattered in the field, away from corporate headquarters are able to be constantly monitored for security purposes, and any speeds of business vehicle travel can also be recorded, all using the tandem of our products and GPS satellites. Once given comprehensive reports on the driving behaviors of remote workers, businesses can then use that information to implement strategies for reduced fleet wear-and-tear, saved fuel, and better time management.

Using the power of GPS, Actsoft has engineered intelligent business tools for better, faster mobile operations. Let us help your company reach new heights of efficiency today by providing your team with our sophisticated, yet user-friendly spatial analytics solutions.
