A Profitable and Practical Tool

When we purchase home or office equipment we usually
focus on the basics such as a computer, a printer and even a shredder.  But how
many people focus on selecting a business card scanner? 

If you haven’t bought one yet, head out the door
right now.  With this incredibly practical device you can forget the days of
spending hours inputting contact information into your computer.  It will help
you improve your social life and even increase the profitability of your
business.  How? 

With a business card scanner you can scan the
information on a card you’ve collected from a friend, a colleague or a possible
customer.  Think about the dozens of networking events you can attend and the
list of contacts you can create in a matter of minutes.  You can then send
newsletters and promotional materials to everyone on your list.  You can
dedicate more time to planning a family event, shopping for the right outfit,
selecting the proper music, savoring the different foods rather than spend hours
looking for all your guests’ addresses.  The scanner will have already done all
that work for you. 

Among the latest models you’ll find one that will
help you categorize your contacts into groups for expedient emailing; it will
also find the name you’re looking for in just seconds.  And don’t miss the ones
that now integrate 3D technology.  As you will learn, the most popular models
are regularly updated to showcase the latest in technology.  However, like
computers, they too become obsolete as new trends in the market are unveiled.  

Selecting the right scanner will depend on how much
you wish to spend.  It will also depend on whether you need it for a small
office, a large company or personal home use.    

It is of course advisable that you shop around until
you find the one that best suits your needs.  Check out the basic card scanners
ideal for personal use; the portable machines that you can take everywhere with
you; or the specialized card scanners, ideal for creating invoices.         

And no matter where you go, make sure to speak with
a salesperson that can guide you properly.  This tool could change your
life.

to Start a Profitable Trucking Business

 

Trucks
provide essential services.  They carry the goods to be delivered to places
like grocery stores, factories, and manufacturers among many.  So if you’re
considering opening a trucking company you’ll need to know how to go about it
in order to ensure success.  At first, you’ll want to consider whether to buy
new trucks or used ones.  Most pre-owned rigs have approximately 500,000 miles
when placed on the sale lot.  With proper care they can last past one million
miles.

 

Prior
to beginning the operation, equip your office with the tools that will
guarantee efficiency.  Consider purchasing a computer and installing a records
management program.  Keep in mind that in the trucking business, maintaining
proper records is crucial. 

 

If
you lack experience in records management, get the help of a professional who
will show you how to create customer files, how to maintain billing and expense
records, and how to keep track of your drivers’ information.

too that as the owner of a trucking company you’re required to keep all records
and not discard them for a minimum of ten years.  As you can see, there’s much
to learn in terms of state and industry regulations.  So don’t hesitate in
hiring an expert to teach you about records management.  Failure to abide by
the laws may result in serious penalties.

 

To
build your customer basis, seek the help of local brokers.  They will help you
contact companies who will hire you to lug their loads.  Keep a file for each
customer and accurate records of the loads you transport for them.  By doing so
you’ll have a better handle on payments and accounts to be paid.  Again, this
is where a good records management system will come in handy.  Most experts
recommend that any unpaid bills be sent to a collection agency.  But prior to
taking that step, it’s best that you send out notifications to the delinquent
customers, thus, giving them a chance to pay their debt; after all it may be an
oversight as they may not have a proper records management system in place.

 

Starting
a trucking company can be an exciting endeavor.  And since it entails a
substantial money commitment, don’t skimp on important aids such as a records
management program; and make sure that the trucks you acquire can handle
everything from short trips to long hauls.
