I noticed recently that the MTI Horizon Web site is missing a comprehensive list of training videos.

Since the training videos were moved onto our new media server, I've put the list up here instead:

Promo Videos

Shipment Broker
Load Planner
Form Validation

Viewing Reports
Billing Surcharges
Using Horizon in a warehouse
Using Horizon in a Logging Environment

Billing Training
Creating Invoices
Processing Bills
Billing Reports
Billing Receipts

Detailed Settlements Training
Basic Driver Pay
Driver Deductions
Driver Settlement Sheets

Document Imaging with Docubase

The above videos will typically have some sound. The following videos do not:

Expert Dispatch
Manifest Planner
Master Files
Moving from Dispatch to Billing
Horizon Tanker Veeder Integration

Main MTI Office out with a chill

The main MTI office is out with a chill today, a bad weather chill that knocked out its power. Thankfully most of the systems that run the office are off-site, including our main web site and our Live Help support.

Unfortunately, our email isn't - so if you're trying to send us email, you'll likely get a nasty "undeliverable" message. You can get a hold of me directly at my email (which rarely goes down).

You can also get support directly by searching our main site. There are lots of training videos there.

Socket Communications : Wearable Bar Code Scanning Products

Hmmm - now this looks interesting (linked by Gizmodo) - so now your bar code scanner becomes a part of your attire.

This could be huge for warehouse tools - after all, who wants to carry around a bulky scanner when you can simply wear it.
