Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in Utilities

Utility companies are able to use a variety of Actsoft solutions to streamline their workflows, and ensure that they’re getting the most out of everyday operations. Businesses dealing in water, HVAC servicing, electrical repair, and plumbing almost exclusively conduct daily work at remote locations, which can open up a world of possibilities for breaks in connectivity to occur. The reliability of a business solution then becomes vital, if management teams are to establish and maintain solid communication with their mobile technicians.

Features of Actsoft solutions like GPS Tracking, Dispatching, and Wireless Forms are all readily applicable to the utilities industry, collectively providing extra efficiency to daily operations. Here’s how utilities businesses can benefit from these particular tools:

GPS Tracking

With GPS Tracking, utilities companies can know the near real-time positions of their scattered employees on the fly. This feature is a versatile one that functions seamlessly with other Actsoft tools, leaving workforces more equipped than ever to handle the unexpected. GPS monitoring of employees, fleet vehicles, and assets can enhance safety for workers, better safeguard business equipment, and make team coordination a breeze to sustain.

Dispatching

This feature enables businesses to redirect their field techs to new job locations on the fly via electronic communication. Managers can perceive the locations of their organization’s mobile employees in near real-time, and identify the closest available staff members to new work sites.

Quick response times to critical situations like pipe breaks, electrical failures, and water stoppages are integral to providing the best possible service to your customers. If your company was equipped with a solution for helping staff identify and reach new jobs as efficiently as possible, what more could it accomplish?

Wireless Forms

Receiving vital paperwork back from the field in a timely manner is another pain point for many organizations, as it’s often times impractical and costly to deal with. For companies that choose to use Actsoft’s Wireless Forms solution, however, documentation is kept streamlined via the power of digital systems. Employees of utilities companies can fill out custom work orders and billing documents from the convenience of mobile devices, saving time, money, and resources daily.

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. Electronic storage is able to safeguard sensitive information, and also help to ensure that it never gets lost by accident.

Mobile Timekeeping

Employees can clock in and out remotely using this powerful feature, and when used in tandem with GPS Tracking, they’re able to safely keep business vehicles at their homes overnight. Save on fuel costs, reduce unnecessary trips back to the office for clocking in, and enhance workforce productivity with Mobile Timekeeping.

GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking allows for employees and fleet vehicles to be surveilled around the clock. Squad cars, utility vehicles, and other assets can be monitored via satellite-enabled tracking, making GPS pinpointing a vital tool that helps to facilitate strong team direction on the fly.

Industry Spotlight: Actsoft Solutions in Agriculture

Agriculture has remained essential to human existence over the course of history. As society has developed, the process of growing and harvesting crops has become even more efficient than ever before, thanks to developments in technology over time which have helped this particular industry expand in terms of both volume and future potential. Farming is also an industry that’s proving to be more and more crucial as the world’s populace continues to increase. Still, it’s no easy feat to coordinate and provide a constant supply of food internationally.

To help facilitate this vertical’s around-the-clock processes, Actsoft solutions are here to provide practical applications for better operations management. These three features of our business solutions in particular are some of the most crucial for companies in the industry of agriculture, primarily due to their ability to enhance efficiency and keep valuable equipment in the field safe.

Asset Tracking

With Asset Tracking, farming businesses can keep tabs on the positions of important tools such as harvesting equipment and transportation supplies at virtually any time of the day. Collecting and distributing huge portions of crops in today’s age requires the use of heavy machinery to accomplish, and often times that heavy machinery isn’t cheap. Keep your agriculture company’s assets and equipment safeguarded 24/7 by using Asset Tracking to monitor them via GPS technology.

Wireless Forms

As another addition to the repertoire of the modern workforce, Wireless Forms’ applications in farming are frequently underestimated. Use this feature to streamline information flows on a digital scale, and complete documents such as orders, equipment repair forms, and data logs about harvest yields without having to deal with the inconveniences of paper.

Alerts

Alerts are able to add further security to assets by sending automatic notifications to property owners if a piece of equipment is moved without their authorization. In certain cases, Alerts is a feature that can also enable farmers to prolong the lifespan of their vehicular equipment by reminding them whenever routine maintenance needs to be performed. Through intelligent reporting, this capability helps agriculture businesses save on their bottom line by helping to reduce instances of equipment loss, and prevent cases of possible damage from occurring.

Natural Wonders: 5 Spectacular Lakes to Visit

You’ve been running your business the same way since its inception. So what’s the incentive in changing things now, if what you’ve been doing thus far works well enough? Why switch things up when you’ve been able to keep your company up and running, doing things on your own? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

The answer to all three of these questions is one and the same: A few simple changes can make a world of a difference, letting you see an immediate increase in profitability. That’s what Actsoft’s solutions can do for your business; our software is simultaneously affordable, simple to implement, and effective. You can still run your business the way in which you have grown accustomed, but with a few tweaks that help make your production more efficient.

Such tweaks — like making the switch from paper forms to our Wireless Forms, or using GPS Tracking to better monitor the efficiency of your workers’ driving habits — can result in a tremendous return for your business. You’ll save on the cost of excessive paper use by ditching hard copies in lieu of going digital, and the amount of fuel your fleet burns through will dramatically reduce just by making smarter driving decisions.

Mind you, these are just two of the Actsoft features that help improve your business’s practices. With an extensive suite of tools, there are many more that can reshape the way you do business. But by cutting back on the amount of waste your company produces, the result translates into more money making its way into your bank account. In addition, there’s that feel-good sensation that comes with knowing this type of eco-friendly behavior reduces your company’s carbon footprint and helps to make a positive impact on our environment.

In celebrating the “green” effects Actsoft’s solutions can have on the environment, we’re continuing to explore some of the stunning natural wonders of the world. This week, we take a tour of five of the most awe-inspiring lakes from around the country.

Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire
The largest lake in New Hampshire, this striking body of water stretches a whopping 21 miles and is dotted with 258 lush islands of various sizes, from tiny bumps of land to those housing multiple homes that offer unique panoramic views from within the lake. Winnipesaukee is the perfect spot for all the outdoor excursions you’d expect — hiking, biking, horseback riding, and watersports galore — but for a real treat, head to the Castle in the Clouds. The 100-year-old stone mansion, which sits atop Ossipee Mountain, offers breathtaking views of the lake from the peak’s high vantage point.

Mono Lake, California
This desert oasis in the middle of the Sierra Nevada is worth a visit because of the unusual landscape surrounding it. The lake has a remarkably high salt level due to the lack of an outlet, so there are no fish present, but the waters are full of brine shrimp. The area is a popular nesting ground for an array of winged creatures, including California gulls and snowy plovers. Be sure to take advantage of some photo ops with the columns of tufa — limestone formations shooting out from the ground — that dot the landscape around (and in) the lake.

Lake Willoughby, Vermont
This glacial lake, with exceptionally clear waters, in the northeast corner of Vermont is as close as you can find to a fjord in the states since it’s flanked by mountains (and forest). A trip to this place is guaranteed to be a quiet, relaxing one, since the only town abutting it is Westmore, a sleepy town of just over 300 residents. Anglers, in particular, will rejoice at the variety of fish up for grabs; swimming the chilly waters are Atlantic salmon, rainbow smelt, steelhead trout, and round whitefish, among others. Don’t miss a chance to hike to the top of adjacent Mt. Pisgah for unrivaled views of the shimmering waters below.

Crater Lake, Oregon
This almost perfectly circular lake in southwestern Oregon was formed in a caldera, essentially a naturally formed cauldron that was created when a volcano collapsed amid a major eruption nearly 8,000 years ago. With a depth of nearly 1,950 feet, it’s the deepest lake in the country, and its strikingly blue hue is a testament to both the depth and purity of its waters, which is sourced only from rain and snow. Book a boat tour and you can opt for a stopover on Wizard Island; the 315-acre island was formed from a series of smaller eruptions in the (several hundred) years following Crater Lake’s explosive formation.

Maroon Lake, Colorado
Nestled in the valley between two mountain ranges — Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak — known as the Maroon Bells, this lake is a must-see in particular because of the majestic surroundings. Located just 10 miles west of Aspen, getting here is easy, but you most likely won’t be able to drive it. The road to the lake is closed to most private vehicles during the day — this was initiated to combat the severe pollution brought in by traffic, due to area’s tremendous popularity — so booking a bus trip is your best option. Hiking trails abound and lead to Insta-worthy photo ops year round, but the area is exceptionally picturesque in the autumn months when the landscape is dotted with explosions of fall colors.

Natural Wonders: 5 Secluded Beaches to Escape the Crowds

Sometimes, the very thought of “going green” can sound the alarm for business owners as a practice that, while noble, requires a huge investment of finances that not only will affect their bottom lines, but that they just don’t have the resources to put forward, even if they wanted to.

But that’s not always the case. At Actsoft, we give business owners the tools to cut down on unnecessary waste, namely paper and fuel. Just by cutting back on the use of both resources, you’ll be putting money back into your pocket and reducing your carbon footprint.

For example, our Wireless Forms tool gives you the ability to significantly reduce the amount of paper you use both in the field and in the office. To boot, in addition to the financial savings and eco-positive results from dialing back paper use, you’ll also see gains in terms of your team’s ability to turn around more work in the field.

When you switch from paper to digital forms, your remote crew can process “paperwork” much faster and, instead of having to take the time to bring all physical forms back to the office for processing, they can zip it off instantly and be off to the next assignment without missing a beat. And your office team can work faster to process it since there are no discrepancies resulting from poor handwriting or damaged papers.

It’s an all-around win-win solution: money in your pocket and a reduced carbon footprint. And it’s why we’re continuing to celebrate our green solutions by paying tribute to some of our favorite natural wonders from around the world. This week, we’re traveling to some of the greatest secluded beaches. These are the ones to hit up when you want a beachy retreat but without all the noisy crowds.

Dry Tortugas, Florida
It doesn’t get much more secluded than this. First, you have to get all the way down to Key West, in the Florida Keys. From there, you’ll hop on a ferry (or charter a seaplane) and travel some 70 miles west, where you’ll arrive at the 100-square-mile national park. Pack everything you need, including food and drink, since there are few amenities on the island. Four calm, crowd-free beaches can be found along either side of the cloistered paradise. In the center, serving as a backdrop, is Fort Jefferson. Built as a military fortification and then later used as a prison, this massive structure takes up an expansive portion of the island and is a must-see site for any history buff. If a day trip to the island isn’t enough for you, there are a limited number of campsites available to rent, on a first come, first serve basis.

Second Beach, Washington
Part of the La Push trio of beaches, the only way to get to this stretch of surf is through a hiking trail full of switchbacks and an array of trail conditions, including a worn (but fully functional) wood-framed “staircase.” A cabinet tree (which some hikers opt to drop keepsakes inside of, despite the “leave no trace” rule inherent for most naturephiles) marks the near-end of the path. Once at the beach, you’re treated to a stunning view of towering sea stacks in the distance, plus a natural rock arch you can often hear the wind whistling through on stormier days. Oh, and if this all looks familiar, it’s because it was featured in the movie, “Twilight.”

Cumberland Island, Georgia
Georgia’s southernmost (and largest) barrier island is only accessible via a ferry, so don’t plan to drive there, despite the island’s close proximity to the mainland. The eastern side is where you’ll find some 17 miles of beach stretching from the top to the bottom of the island. While the beaches are a peaceful respite from throngs of crowds, and devoid of litter and debris, you may find yourself sharing the space with a potentially rowdy group … of horses. Cumberland Island is home to a number of feral horses that roam its grounds, including the beach, so be on the lookout for a congregation of the majestic creatures potentially frolicking in the surf. Hotel accommodations are available on the island or, if you’d rather be a little closer to nature, you can reserve a campsite from the National Park Service.

Roque Bluffs Beach, Maine
In the sleepy town of Roque Bluffs, you’ll find a duality of waterfronts. On the north side of the road are the serene, still freshwaters of Simpson Pond. In stark contrast, across on the street is where saltwater waves lap at a half-mile stretch of sandy beach. Pack a picnic, since there isn’t much in the way of accommodations along this sleepy stretch of coastal Maine road, found nearly 90 miles east of Bangor, the closest “large” city. Then enjoy the views of Englishman Bay as you while the afternoon away.

Awahua Beach, Molokai, Hawaii
With a long history of isolation, thanks to its past use as a colony for those with leprosy, the entire island of Molokai remains the least developed of the Hawaiian chain. This is especially true of Awahua Beach. The beach is only accessible by hiking, but only with a local tour group, since you’ll pass through the abandoned remnants of a historic leper colony. Once you arrive, you’re treated to a quiet, stunning black-sand beach, surrounded by some of the tallest cliffs to be found on the island. Because of the unpredictable, strong currents, swimming is prohibited, but there’s nothing to stop you from enjoying the one-of-a-kind views.

Helpful Ways to Maintain Peace of Mind

In virtually any scenario, peace of mind is something many of us seek. Whether it’s while you’re trying to effectively direct a team, meet an important deadline, buy a home for the first time, or even plan a vacation, maintained mental calmness can be a very beneficial asset to have. Thankfully, there’s never been a more diverse assortment of resources available in today’s world to help you with this.

Recent trends in both technology and business are all about moving toward simplified, more productive workflows, and ideally, these processes will be optimized for efficiency. In turn, employees become positioned to complete their jobs with ease, which alleviates the stress load for everyone. With a team full of driven individuals that all have peace of mind behind every single project that’s on the table, great things are bound to occur.

So, how does one go about finding mental clarity in personal and business life alike?

As we’ve discussed in previous posts, something such as traveling abroad can be an essential supplement to your well-being, and it’s one of the best ways to sustain high levels of peace of mind. Experiencing cultures and landscapes that you’ve never witnessed before expands horizons, while also allowing you to become better-rounded as an individual.

On the business side, mental clarity allows employees to do their jobs faster, better, and with less stress involved. For companies with dispersed mobile staff and assets in particular, Actsoft solutions make workforce management easier, smarter, and more effective.

Our organization specializes in the simplification of your business’s daily processes. Features of our solutions like Wireless Forms and Messaging allow your company to communicate and transmit information back and forth more efficiently, which can bring an extra measure harmony to your workforce. On the heels of greater collective peace of mind and enhanced productivity, your company may ensure that its employees are happy, healthy, and more efficient than ever before.

Actsoft’s Applications in the Shipping Industry

Two things that constantly hang in the balance of success for a shipping company’s daily operations are the quality of the goods they’re transporting, and the timeliness with which they’re delivered to a destination. Transportation companies today choose to make keeping both of these things optimized a priority, and many leverage them as positive differentiators between their services and those of their competitors to gain advantages in the marketplace. In addition to attracting and retaining business, heightened efforts to ensure that products arrive on time and in excellent condition also save shipping companies time and money by paying significant dividends back into their bottom lines.

To help transportation businesses find these sought-after optimizations, Actsoft’s solutions are there to provide an extra measure of insight for company administrators regarding their business’s daily operations. Key features that we support including Wireless Forms, Electronic Logging Devices (ELD), and GPS Tracking allow shipping companies to fine-tune the various facets of their respective workforces for efficiency, security, and savings.

Wireless Forms

Using Wireless Forms, workers of shipping businesses can digitally transmit back important data from the field to their company’s headquarters nearly instantly. Records of completed orders that are filled out by remote employees via mobile devices eliminate the need for paper forms, and simplify business. As non-digital documents can be easily lost, costly to print from an annual perspective, and lengthier to process, our Wireless Forms tool has monumental influence on increasing virtually any company’s operational efficiency.

ELD

Powered by VisTracks, Actsoft’s ELD solution can provide transportation companies with increased stability by taking much of the guesswork out of their drivers’ jobs. As a capable application that’s fully certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), our ELD solution helps employees verify that they’re staying in compliance with Hours-of-Service (HoS) mandates, as established by the FMCSA through automated driver data recording. Fines resulting from errors in manually-logged information can end up costing shipping businesses thousands of dollars, and when equipped with a powerful tool like ours to help mobile workers attain higher levels of consistency, companies can avoid as many of these fees as possible.

GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking from Actsoft can help shipping companies keep tabs on their mobile drivers in near real-time, and make sure that their transit networks are operating in fashions that are safe, secure, and expedited. Fuel-efficient routes can also be planned out using this feature, which help businesses implement some of the most standardized and budget-conscious methods possible when it comes to moving goods.

The Woes of Remote Management & How to Remedy Them

Though it seems a lifetime ago, we really don’t have to look too far back to remember a time when the traditional workweek was considered Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Of course there were always exceptions to the rule, depending on the industry and demands, but that was long held to be the standard. (I mean, c’mon, there was even a song written about it.)

But over the years, that standard workweek (and subsequently the workday itself) has continued to evolve and transform into a more fluid, amorphous entity, so to speak. More flexibility was introduced to accommodate individuals’ personal situations. One of the biggest — and increasingly more popular and rapidly adopted — changes is the concept of remote employment and, by proxy, remote management.

Once upon a time, this type of arrangement was only found sporadically, in special situations; but today, thanks in part to all the advancements in digital communications, it is becoming de rigueur. It’s not unusual for businesses to be almost exclusively staffed by work-from-home employees who may not even live in the same state (or country) as the company headquarters.

There are so many benefits to this type of business model: Employers can cast a wider net when it comes to staffing the best, brightest people for the job; office-space rentals are smaller since they don’t need to be large enough to accommodate everyone; the customer base, for services requiring in-person visits, isn’t restricted to just locals; and so much more!

With those perks, however, come some challenges. How does a business owner, or even a manager, keep a staff in line when they’re never around each other or, quite possibly, they’ve never met in person? Who’s to say a remote worker is doing what they should be doing, for sure? Are they making the most of their time?

That’s where we come into play.

Actsoft’s robust suite of tools was designed for exactly this purpose. Whether all of your employees are local but spend the bulk of their days on the go, or you staff remote workers in distant regions around the country or world, we’ve got your back.

Fleet Tracking One of the bigger industries where remotely working is the norm, naturally, is in the trucking industry. Back in the day, truckers were depended upon to accurately report their hours and distances traveled in paper logs. Today, those paper logs no longer suffice; everything must be digital. We partnered with VisTracks to provide state-of-the-art ELD tracking of hours to make sure your long-haul drivers are keeping compliant with the law and therefore not costing you needless dollars in fines. Couple that with our fleet-tracking devices and, just as easily as if you were sitting in the passenger seat, you can follow your drivers’ routes, safe-driving practices, and vehicle idling, among other things.

GPS Tracking This is particularly helpful when you have employees who are not only remote, but also work in the field. With our service tracking staff members, you can always be certain they’re actually with the right client/at the proper location when they say they are, for how long they say. This keeps your team honest about their schedules, and also comes in handy when dealing with any potential customer service issues down the road.

Wireless Forms Dealing with paper forms is a hassle no matter what, never mind when the forms being filled out are hundreds of miles from the office. Relying on hard copies, especially with remote staff, is the easiest way to introduce unnecessary delays and errors into your everyday work. Going digital, you eliminate that problematic wait period and instead, all of your formerly-paper forms make their way home instantly. Plus, with our latest Form Workflows option, colleagues across the country can seamlessly collaborate on the same project, quickly passing a single document between each other as needed.

Mobile Timekeeping We’d all like to think that every person on our team, remote or otherwise, is completely trustworthy. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. (Plus, sometimes honest mistakes happen.) Merging GPS tracking with mobile timekeeping capabilities lets you know exactly where your employees are when they punch in; so you know your staff is at a job site, rather than en route, and you’re only paying people for time they actually spend working.

With those four features alone, managing a remote staff of any size or proximity becomes that much easier. And that’s just scratching the surface of what Actsoft and its array of services can do to help your business reach a new, more efficient state.

Modern Architecture and Networking in the 21st Century

Modern architecture is something that has grown increasingly complex in recent decades. Today, seemingly impossible feats of both engineering and construction alike are becoming possible, after recent developments stemming from years of ambitious design. Some of the most cutting-edge creative minds across the globe are continually finding ways to expand the boundaries of what simple building materials like concrete, glass, and iron can do, paving the way to newer, more advanced horizons.

In order to pull off some of the ridiculous engineering associated with such modern marvels as the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, multiple groups of teams on an international scale had to collaborate seamlessly with one another. Suppliers of construction materials, the architects themselves, and scores of dedicated builders all had to come together, applying their specialized skills to achieve a common end goal.

These intrapersonal communications, where ideas are shared and vital information is exchanged typically formulate the beginning of a massive construction project. Logistics such as funding, location, and designs all must be proposed and approved by each respective party that has signed on to do the project. This is what effective networking looks like, albeit in one of its most complex forms.

Networking is a central theme in many different architectural projects. Skyscraper construction in particular is usually conducted with the intent of creating glitzy high-rise hotels or office spaces, both of which are building types that are frequently used as hubs to facilitate professional networking between individuals. During the groundbreaking phase of a project, and even years later when the complex is being used by multiple groups of people in daily operations, the constant process of creating and maintaining any property is often continually churned through the ideas exchanged via networking.

Actsoft solutions can help individuals in both construction and professional networking increase their overall efficiency. By equipping professionals and businesses with all the requisite tools needed to communicate, we’re there to help you attain and sustain efficient levels of productivity. Mobile timekeeping and wireless forms are just two of the many powerful features that our products offer to networkers and construction companies, as they’re able to significantly reduce any barriers that could impede on smooth connectivity between individuals.

Streamlined workflow is one of the best ways to enhance coordination and idea-sharing between members of your business team, and with Actsoft, it’s possible to do. Let’s see what we can do for your organization’s networking bandwidth today.

Benefits and Reasons for Travel

Whether scaling the frosty peaks of Aspen, Colorado or becoming immersed in the bustling metropolitan life of Shanghai, China, travel at its most basic form is something that can be immensely beneficial to an individual’s well-being.

People’s motives for traveling vary. Some do it to relax or to learn about new things in the form of taking a vacation, while others may need to take trips at certain times for work-related reasons or to see family. Either way, getting tastes of new scenery and being exposed to new cultures by changing your geography can improve aspects of work life and personal life alike. Perhaps the largest benefit of traveling is that it can make you better-rounded as an individual, which can positively reflect workplace diversity and impact the many different relationships you might share with others on a daily basis.

In a business sense, employees and CEOs alike may need to travel for work in vocational fields such as finance or sales, and even different forms of entrepreneurial work may warrant excursions for networking events or other reasons. However, for entrepreneurs, owners of companies, and managers, traveling while still having to manage business back home can be difficult to do if the right resources aren’t being used. Thankfully, Actsoft’s mobile resource management solutions are readily available to help travelers maintain control of their companies while they are away from the office.

Actsoft’s solutions can transition some aspects of your business such as report running to an automated, preset schedule. This makes managing your company an easier task to accomplish. Implementation of scheduled reports ensures that valuable data is automatically sent to the right people in your organization on a daily or a weekly basis, and it can save you time and revenue, especially while traveling.

If the roles are reversed and some of your employees are away on a business trip while you remain back at the office, the wireless forms feature can prove to be incredibly useful. Wireless forms can be used to construct travel expense reports for business trips, giving your employees away from the office the power to document their company-funded spending after every single purchase in real time. The form builder’s Camera feature allows employees to take pictures of receipts, rather than forcing them to manually fill out and calculate each individual purchase onto a handwritten form. This also can keep a clean backup record of all business-paid receipts if some become displaced during the entirety of the employees’ trip.

Traveling can help an individual expand their social, cultural, and geographic horizons, no matter their purpose for doing so. However, for those who travel predominantly for work-related reasons, Actsoft’s wireless forms and scheduled reports technology can combine to make managing business while away from the office as streamlined as possible.
