We’ve all become familiar with SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) cloud computing models that are used to provide a range of software and other applications. You may have even come across the term IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), which allows companies to configure and deploy virtual technologies that are hosted in a data center and managed remotely.
Like the petroleum industry, fleet management systems have upstream, midstream and downstream components working to transform crude data into information that fuels business.
Leading brokerages are using technology to achieve the ideal balance between personalized service and more aggressive growth.
As cyber criminals get more sophisticated, cybersecurity has evolved to put more walls between them and valuable user data. Leading strategies include encryption and multi-factor authentication (MFA) – which takes the traditional username/password approach to digital security and adds authentication factors like thumbprint, face and voice recognition, PIN numbers and trusted device authentication.
Managing and maintaining a small fleet is like herding cats. With a dog. You have so many issues to deal with. Not the least of which is juggling service needs while keeping customers on schedule.
No one in the trucking industry likes trucks that aren’t moving. After all, an idle truck isn’t generating revenue. An idle truck, in fact, is only generating costs.
Keeping your vehicles on the road by ensuring that proper and timely fleet maintenance is performed is the main mission of your maintenance operation. When a truck breaks down - something we all know will happen at times - getting it up and running quickly can present an even bigger challenge.
Throughout the last decade, the phrase cloud computing — web-centered computing in which services, including apps, and storage and security, are hosted via the Internet — has become standard in the software-industry lexicon. Enterprising organizations are aware of the mounting costs and complexities of maintaining a secure applications environment and are eager for greater freedom to focus on their core business capabilities. Forward-thinking leadership teams are turning to cloud-based trucking software solutions along with hosting services to manage and protect their operations software environment, rather than on relying on internal hard drives.
