Marketing and Technology Services - Businesses navigating the Q1-Q2 lockdown are shifting focus to an increased online presence; this requires effective marketing messaging and a path to increasing legally-compliant electronic commerce.

Trucept Inc. now offers engineering and technology services to meet Accessibility Standards including W3C and other country-specific regulations such as the American Disabilities Act (ADA), British Standard 8878 (BS 8878), and the Canadian Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). These technology services make websites, mobile applications, and electronic documents easily accessible for those with auditory, cognitive, neurological, physical, speech, or visual disabilities.

Insurance and Third-Party Administrator (TPA) Services - High risk businesses that are seeking to lower worker's compensation insurance premiums are a focus for Trucept Inc. In Q1 of 2020, the acquisition of UWS Insurance provided Trucept Inc. with licensed broker insurance services to a broader set of market segments currently in 25 states. Trucept Inc. is focused on expanding its licensed broker insurance services in all 50 states.

Payroll - Employees must be paid correctly and on time to comply with Federal and State employment laws. Maintaining internal staff to address these requirements comes at a cost. Trucept Inc.'s payroll services eliminate virtually all unnecessary overhead while complying with employment tax laws.

Human Resources and Management - The current uncertain business climate is affecting the global workforce with a shift from in-person operations to remote operations and lockdown business environments. The amount of stress on a remote workforce can place additional burden on a company's human resources department.

Operating with less risk and liability enables businesses to navigate market changes with efficiency. Quality HR administration, employee relation and retention services, and compliance provides time saving and peace of mind to businesses and their employees.

Employee Benefits and Administration - Employees are a primary asset in a business. Yet with the disruption experienced in Q1-Q2 of 2020, business owners are forced to evaluate all areas of cost savings to remain in business and ensure business continuity. It is possible to maintain or expand employee benefits during these turbulent economic times to foster employee retention and increased productivity. Customizing employee benefits packages by Trucept Inc., meets financial and business objectives while giving employees access to better benefits including health, dental, life insurance, and more.

Accounting Support - Businesses looking to grow in the current economic climate require time to navigate market trends. Accounting is a time-consuming process at the heart of every business. Accounting requires regular bookkeeping of accounts receivable and payable, bank and book balance record keeping, statement reconciliation, proof for audits, and more. Trucept Inc.'s services include expert guidance for all aspects of financial accounting and allow businesses to be proactive versus reactive where it matters most: the bottom line.

Safety and Risk Management - Workplace injuries occur. Preparing a business for the legal requirements of workplace injuries requires a proactive approach to safety and risk management. Trucept Inc.'s safety and risk management services save the cost of lost time and lost productivity when workplace injuries occur.
