Posted by Jesus McDonald on Fri, Feb 28, 2014 @ 08:05 AM

Do not risk exposing your company’s confidential data to security threats!

There are many articles written about IT security threats. We often choose to believe it will not happen to our business, until something catastrophic does occur, and then it can be too late!

Posted by Jesus McDonald on Fri, Dec 27, 2013 @ 07:00 AM

2013 is coming to a close and it’s time to prepare for 2014. Take a moment to review the key trends in truck fleet management for the upcoming year.

 

In an extremely informative article, Mike Antich, Editor and Associate Publisher at Truckinginfo.com, shares the top trends in truck fleet management in 2014. Mr. Antich maintains that 2014 and 2015 will be pivotal years for truck fleet management, and fleet efficiencies; he examines trends in the following three areas: 

1.   Vehicle and Equipment 

Lighter-weight equipment specifications in fleet vehicles will lighten the load and continue to help increase fuel economy. Driver comfort, as well as driver safety will be ongoing priorities for vehicle manufacturers, which in turn will encourage a higher rate of driver satisfaction and productivity. In terms of safety, manufacturers are offering enhanced safety features on basic models, thereby increasing safety at all price points.Fleets are obviously impacted by DOT and CSA regulatory compliance, but safety vs. cost needs to be carefully managed. Some fleets are choosing to downsize to smaller GVW vehicles to manage costs while still maintaining safety.

For many businesses, there are times in each monthly or quarterly cycle where cash may be flowing at a trickle and a little financial help is needed to make payments; but it is harder and harder to find banks that are prepared to help loosen the faucet through a loan or line of credit unless excellent financial performance and past history can be clearly shown.
