Home PC Repair 101: Understanding The Fundamentals

When my youngest son's laptop suffered a sudden hard drive failure, I was struck by how little I actually knew about how to fix it - or if it could be fixed. After talking with my local technical support and computer repair specialists, I decided it was time to learn. I didn't want to find myself in a similar position again without some idea of what I could do about it. I spent months researching the logistics of computer repair and how the components worked together. That's when I realized that although computers are in so many homes, many other people are just like me - unsure how to deal with computer problems. I created this site to help solve that problem. I hope the information here helps you to demystify your home computers and the problems you might have with them.

3 Features To Look For In Trucking Software For Your Small Trucking Business

Even on a small scale, a trucking business involves a lot of oversight and organization to be successful. If you are the owner of a small trucking business, you likely try to handle much of the technical side of the process on your own. However, thanks to modern technology, you can easily lighten your load with trucking software. Trucking software gives you access to a program that handles a lot of the busy work of your business, whether it is keeping tabs on mileage and maintenance or scheduling runs. Here is a look at some of the features to look for in a trucking software for your small trucking business. 

Real-Time Data Entry

When you input data into your business software system, you will want that data distributed in real tie to other devices on the network. For example, if you have a main computer in your office where you input information about drop-offs and pick-ups for your drivers, you will want this information accessible by in-truck devices as soon as you put it in. The best trucking software makes this easy by providing you with real-time data entry that automatically updates across all devices when you set it up to do so. 

Automatic DOT  Updates 

Staying within the legal guidelines in your trucking business is always one of your top concerns. Whether it is keeping tabs on changing laws on load limits or otherwise. With a trucking software that automatically updates your operating system to coincide with the latest DOT (Department of Transportation) regulations, you never have to worry that you miss something that could land you with huge fines or troubles you did not anticipate. As soon as new rules are implemented, anything affected about how you do business will also be updated, and you will be given timely alerts about the changes. 

Mobile Friendly 

Thanks to smart phones, the necessary technology used to do many tasks and is totally portable. But not having this mobility can hinder your daily processes from being as efficient as they can be. There may be times when you and your drivers need to access information on the go. Therefore, having a trucking software that offers a mobile-friendly interface will be important. Some of the best software programs have mobile apps that you and employees can add to your phones for easy access to load schedules, log books, and other important data.
