2018 National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS) Conference Recap

SCLogic had another great year at the National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS) Conference in New Orleans, LA. Once again, SCLogic had the privilege of providing the campus logistics solution to track the session attendees. The campus logistics solution setup for the NACUMS Conference was a fairly simple process as each attendee had a badge with a unique barcode and each individual session also had a unique barcode. Using a handheld device, the conference staff members were able to…

APIs: the ever-growing importance of connecting your isolated data sources

APIs: the ever-growing importance of connecting your isolated data sources

It’s not enough anymore to simply gather data, or even provide metrics based on that data. Why? Because there are so many isolated data sources created by the growing number of both consumer and business applications, the goal is now to make sense of it all as whole. Enter the API. APIs (application programming interfaces) are sets of clearly defined methods of communication between various software components such as web-based systems, operating systems, database systems, computer hardware etc. They are the tools that allow…

AI in the Workplace: Developing Skills for the Unknown Future – Part II

AI in the Workplace: Developing Skills for the Unknown Future – Part II

So, this is where it gets even more interesting in my opinion. Knowing that there will be jobs in a few years that don’t currently exist, how do we acquire the skills we’ll need to do those jobs? When what we need to know is changing faster than formal education or long-term training can keep up with, how do we keep up as business owners or employees? About 56% of respondents in the Dell survey from last week speculate that…

AI in the Workplace: Potential for Positive Change IF Implemented with Care – Part I

For decades we’ve speculated over the impact of artificial intelligence in our world. However, now that it is becoming a reality rather than a distant future, the discussion is getting interesting. To find out more, Dell Technologies recently sent a survey to 3,800 executives asking various AI-related questions. About half thought automated systems could free up employee time, while the other half disagrees. However, 82% imagine their employees will have to work as “integrated teams” with machines within the next…

Cutting Costs and Taking Names: An Article Written by One Of Our Own

Cutting Costs and Taking Names: An Article Written by One Of Our Own

The SCLogic team has done it again with a well-written article recently published in Mailing Systems Technology magazine called, “Cutting Mail Center Costs: The Goldilocks Approach.” Why Goldilocks? Because there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to making your mailroom more efficient. The article poses questions to help you think through what might work best for your situation, inviting you to think from expansive, moderate, and creative/resourceful positions. For example: Is your mail center experiencing the year-over-year 25% growth in package deliveries? Did…

Mutual Fund Payments, Bank Pouch and Payroll Tracking

It’s remarkable to see the growth of tracking solutions from the 90’s to now. I’ve witnessed this software go from predominantly tracking packages to now supporting the logistics of entire business campuses. If your inbound package tracking system doesn’t have the ability to track accountable item workflows, it may be time for a change. Of the various tracking applications available, one in particular might be a bit more valuable than the rest. I’m talking about tracking money. Leading transfer agents,…

Theme Park Tracking

Theme Park Tracking

For the past few months, I decided to discuss unique applications where package tracking software can be used. My hopes are to open your eyes to the endless possibilities available to anyone using a reputable package tracking system. This month, I’d like to take a look at the behind-the-scenes work at theme parks and the additional ways they can use internal tracking software. Two of the biggest items to track at theme parks are tickets and roller coaster parts. Because…

Employee Tracking

Employee Tracking

Although commonly referred to as “package” tracking software, anything with a unique ID can be accounted for with help from the right software provider. Take employees as an example. Do you need to keep track of employees coming in and out of the office? Do they have a badge with a barcode? Put those badges to use and either scan or swipe them into your tracking software. In some cases organizations will require their employees to park off-site and use…
