Jason Hope Sees Internet Of Things Radically Transforming U.S. Industry

Jason Hope, the Arizona internet entrepreneur best known for founding premium content provider Jawa, has recently taken to the internet, writing about various aspects of the coming revolution in technology that will be brought about by The Internet of Things.

One of the things that Hope has been touching on in his writings is the potentially transformational role that the Internet of Things will likely play in American industry. Such inventions as automated warehouses and self-driving trucks promise to create efficiency gains that are unprecedented. Hope sees these developments creating both huge benefits and potential costs.

Taking the good with the bad
Many view these developments as a feature of some far-off science fiction future. But Jason Hope points out that this future is already here. In October of 2016, Uber, the ridesharing service, successfully delivered the first payload of a self-driving truck. This effectively proved the concept of self-driving trucks and completely automated logistics. Hope believes this is an important sign of things to come. Within the next 10 years, he opines, self-driving trucks will completely transform the logistics industry, obviating the need for human drivers entirely.

Such developments in technology will yield huge cost savings and efficiency gains. However, at the same time it will impose grave costs on those who previously relied on the driving industries for a living. But Hope believes that those costs will be more than offset by the productivity gains and that through judicious government intervention, those workers who find themselves without good employment prospects will still be able to live decent lives.

Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. Has the Style to Emulate

If any company or business is looking for an organization to emulate, it would be Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. The company began its journey in 1991 as a small, regional title and documents company and today it is one of the largest in the world in its field. It handles the sourcing of documents found in all of the jurisdictions and counties in the United States, which amounts to over 3,600 places to look.

 

The keys to the success of document companies are to be able to deliver to the customer the required documents accurately and at great speed. Nationwide has a compliance rate of 99.89% and a failure rate of only .78%, meaning that they are nearly 100% on both counts.

 

Considering the sheer volume of documents that the company processes, this is an incredible statistic. Eight out of the top ten retail mortgage and lending businesses have chosen Nationwide as their primary sources for their documents. These companies include some of the largest mortgage and lending companies in the world.

 

Employees are given lots of credit for the robust statistics at Nationwide. From the beginning of their employment, they go through a very intensive training for about three weeks and then are continually supervised closely until they master their job.

 

There are also about 150 additional training modules available at the discretion of the employees which are used for additional training and skills. Many of these modules are instrumental in various paths to advancement and employees are given time to pursue these options. Up to 70% of the workforce is involved in the extra training at any given time.

 

Success does not usually happen by accident, especially with large companies. Nationwide is experiencing rapid growth largely due to more retail mortgage companies recognizing the skill and results exhibited in the past. The company has grown over 700% since 2008, for example, and continues its trend year by year. These kinds of results happen for a reason.

 

John Hillman, CEO of Nationwide made an industry-wide podcast recently where he talked about results in the industry and what has to be done to achieve them. Compliance is a much-discussed topic in the industry, yet it always seems to be a problem in some circles. Hillman went on to say that if you want good compliance, you must train for it and let employees know what is expected. Then a high level of monitoring must also be in place to measure results and communicate to employees. You keep the score, and the score will improve.

 

The Texas Regional Mobility Authority Focuses on Curbing Traffic Congestion

Traffic congestion in Austin is increasing at an alarming rate. The traffic congestion menace is affecting not only Austin but many other states in the United States, and a solution is required to handle the woes. In September 3rd, Viewpoints editorial, the American-Statesman recognized the need to come up with a tech solution to curb the traffic congestion problem. The Statesman argued that multiple resources are required to address the issue, and that is why Texas Regional Mobility Authority focuses on that issue.

 

Mobility solutions offered by the Statesman

The Statesman gives a report stating suggestions on how the traffic congestion can be reduced. In that report, Statesman recommends residents to walk and pedal to reduce traffic congestion. The report also suggests the building of shared use paths, which offer dedicated pedestrian and bicycle paths tied to existing trails. Statesman also suggests construction of pedestrian or a bike bridge going up over MoPac, south of Parmer Lane.

 

Statesman also touches on another major problem in Austin community, which is congestion caused by constant stopping and starting of drivers on busy roadways. Minor breakdowns usually cause the congestion. Drivers should move again or off the road quickly to improve on congestion. The Mobility Authority gets support from the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to implement its programs. The highway emergency response program offers free help to motorists with minor problems before they become major traffic nightmares. The Mobility Authority has implemented most of these solutions suggested by the Statesman. The authority partners with Texas Department of Transportation, stakeholders, and counties and cities of Central Texas to beat traffic jams.
