Technology trends, best practices, customer stories, and industry news.

  • Through our decades working with residential and commercial trade contractors, we have recognized these as dominant pitfalls of the industry. Simply stated, these pitfalls are created by a lack of technology implementation and the trades that are excelling, are the trades that are embracing technological advancement.

  • In the world of logistics, last-mile delivery has long been a familiar term for analysts and industry insiders. But thanks to Amazon, a once sequestered word, reserved only for logistics insiders, has now become a front-burner issue.

  • In previous years, asset management solutions focused on two primary metrics: what you have and where it was last located. However, today, most asset tracking systems have moved beyond two dimensions with automatic identification technologies to determine the condition of an asset, when it was last serviced, or any environmental changes may affect its function.

  • They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so we decided to convert our recent case study on De Pere Cabinet into a bite-size infographic.

  • De Pere Cabinet is a privately owned company focused on building quality cabinetry for 44 years. Since 1975 De Pere has been finding ways to innovate and provide top-quality trends for its customers. Under the leadership of David Gerstner, De Pere has continued to build on its reputation of never settling for the status quo. 

  • Ahh, the barcode. The familiar image of data transfer trusted for nearly 50 years. The black and white striped workhorse of logistics automation that has become a true classic. It’s like your grandpa’s pick-up truck: certainly not flashy, but so well worn and always ready to work. And, nothing goes better with a barcode than a laser scanner, it is the logistics version of PB&J.

  • As we continue to work with companies in the logistics and last-mile delivery sector, there is one inescapable rule that has yet to be broken. Regardless of how big your company is, or the size of your market, your process is more important than technology. Even the best software will eventually bow to the authority of process — every time.

  • Over the past few weeks, we have put together a high-level video overview showing just some of the ways we are working to provide proof of delivery solutions for clinical lab delivery companies. We are excited to share this and spread the word. Give it a look! If you work in clinical lab delivery you know that moving things from A to B, is never as simple as it seems.
  • There is no doubt that mobile technology can revolutionize the way you run your business. But the actual motivation behind such a change will make all the difference in how your company (and boss) adopt the changes. Let’s face it, a lot of companies out there will sell you something without forcing you to have what I call, a gut-check.

  • Anyone can deliver something from one location to another; the million dollar question is how efficiently can they do it? However, the real challenge for most clinical delivery companies is the variety of items being delivered and the specific handling rules for those types.

  • There is often an unfortunate assumption made by companies looking to invest in mobile solutions. The thinking goes like this: do a quick Google search, scan a list of features and benefits, pick the option with the least expensive user license fees, and that’s that.
