Handling the Inefficiencies of Harsh Winter Weather

The biting cold of winter can bring with it a slew of inefficiencies for organizations that must regularly deploy a mobile workforce. From icy roadways causing driving hazards to snowstorms affecting work performed outdoors, the toll that harsh winter weather imposes on operations should always be accounted for in any business’s game plan. Construction and transportation companies in particular must deal with some of the worst symptoms of bad winter weather. As either road travel or working outdoors are essential to both of these industries, safety remains a major concern. And while our software can’t prevent bad weather from occurring, […]


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 […]


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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

If you’ve been watching the news the last few days, you know that the latest hurricane of the 2018 season threatening the U.S. — Hurricane Michael — is currently barreling its way into the Gulf of Mexico. As it makes its way north, it’s expected to charge up using the warm waters of the Gulf, increasing in strength until it makes landfall, potentially as a Category 3 storm, which means its wind speed will range from 111–130 mph. As of now, the hurricane’s path is expected to take it to the Florida Panhandle, landing somewhere around Panama. But because these […]
