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 […]


Doctor Who and Vehicle Tracking

For those of you that consider yourselves Whovians, you already know the last month’s premiere of Doctor Who on the BCC was met with great anticipation. For the first time since the series was originally introduced in 1963, the Doctor — an intergalactic, time traveling, humanoid alien from a distant galaxy, with the ability to skirt death by regenerating into an entirely new entity with a different look and personality, all while retaining many centuries of learned knowledge — regenerated as a female. During this particularly tumultuous regeneration, the new Doctor was separated from her beloved Tardis, a time machine […]

When it comes to gas prices, unpredictability is an inevitability. Any number of factors can have a direct impact on the cost, causing it to dip or increase without much warning. Because of this, it’s important for fleet-based business owners to pay careful attention to the amount of fuel their drivers are consuming while behind the company wheel. Of course, it doesn’t matter whether the cost per gallon is at an all-time low or skyrocketed to an all-time high; you should always be mandating that your drivers follow safe, efficient driving practices since, regardless of what the actual price is, […]

Automation is the name of the game in 2018. Businesses are increasingly in search of ways to take old, cumbersome processes and revamp them into contemporary forces of efficiency, and transportation companies in particular are a prime example of this trend. Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) are becoming viewed as the true future of the shipping industry as a whole. Demand for reliable ELD technology stems from the need to standardize the methods in which transportation companies go about complying with federal regulations. The Federal Motor Safety Carrier Administration (FMCSA) has instituted mandates called Hours of Service (HoS) that require corporations […]

The ability to track your drivers’ behaviors is tantamount to money in your pocket. When you make sure that the people responsible for taking your fleet on the road are practicing stellar driving habits — like minimizing unnecessary vehicle idling times, keeping a steady pace instead of burning fuel by speeding, and curbing that tendency to slam on the brakes needlessly — you drastically cut back on fuel consumption. Studies have shown that just cutting down on aggressive driving alone can save you anywhere from 10 to 40 percent on fuel. Whether fuel prices are sky high or at record […]

The creation of a Global Positioning System (GPS) has brought extra convenience and powerful business applications alike into the lives of modern-day people.
