There’s a lot to manage as a logistics company. From business inquires to tracking shipments and all the documents in between. With so many different things happening simultaneously, how do you you keep track of everything and keep everyone in the loop?
We had a team chat today about Kubernetes, what it is, why we started using it and how it has transformed our Dev Team.
Hiring new staff can be both exciting and daunting. In an effort to make your life easier hiring new team members, we wanted to highlight one way we use our custom contact workflows: Hiring New People.
We have some great discussions as a team that vary between software, business & life talks. In a recent chat, we discussed how every company is actually a software company. What does that mean? No matter what business type you are, you need to be investing in your technology and software in order to compete. The alternative is you stay the same and get left behind.
