Invoices

Michael Armfield

We’ve traditionally held off on building an invoice feature because many of our customers have existing accounting systems that facilitate the invoicing process. However, we’ve discovered that such processes often involve copying and pasting billing data from a system like MobileOps into separate accounting software. In addition, it’s difficult to contextualize all the facets of a job when creating an invoice in an external accounting system. Therefore, we set out to build an invoice feature that accomplishes two main goals...

Fleet Diagrams

Lindsay Schwindt

MobileOps is excited to announce the launch of a new feature that lives in our Vessels module—Fleet Diagrams.

As CTO at MobileOps I am often asked about cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is a vast, complicated domain and given that the terrain is always shifting, I think it’s best to harbor a degree of paranoia in order to stay on top of potential threats. Given my background in the DevOps and infrastructure automation space, I’ve brought a healthy degree of paranoia and have applied it to the MobileOps platform in the form of our security plan.

The top ambition of all companies is to achieve success in the marketplace. In a world that is rapidly evolving, the ability to adapt to change is crucial in order to steer clear of failure. Change is a funny thing though—we sometimes have to endure short-term discomfort in order to gain long-term success. Change is the only way continuous success is achieved.

1. It’s easy to use. When we speak with captains, deckhands, and engineers they often tell us that MobileOps is the easiest software they’ve used to date (and many of them have used a combination of other solutions that exist in the marketplace).

On July 20th of this year everyone in the towing industry had to be Subchapter M compliant due to the fact that on July 22nd of next year 25% of a company’s fleet must have their COI’s (certificate of inspection) to keep their business up and running. With that said, what does it look like in terms of cost to be Subchapter M compliant?
