I Just Got a New Job

I have gotten a pretty nice promotion at my work, although in truth it is not something for which I have any real training. I got it because the guy who used to have the job is married to a woman who has a much better career than he does. She got sent to New York City and the increase in her pay was massive, so he just walked away from this job. I am sort of in charge of procurement, so I have to figure out how to get hold of custom rubber seals for the hydraulics components that we build here. Continue reading

Started to Build Some Custom Servers

It is going to be a pretty big challenge, but the company has decided that it is time for us to build our own server room and servers. That is not something you do lightly, but so far we have not been able to find a vendor who can satisfy us. Right now I am trying to figure out how to get the best deal on a couple of custom power distribution unit designs that are going to be able to give us the factors we are looking for. In this case we are looking to be able to manage the energy costs, to have a reliable supply of power and something which is not going to be too extreme when it comes to cooling factors. It is not an easy task to figure out how to get all of the stuff you need and still make it work with the budget that you have been given. Continue reading

Keeping Apartments Rented Keeps Our Profits Up

As a landlord with a lot of apartments for rent, I wanted a solution to keep them filled with occupants year round. I never want a place to be without a tenant more than a week. If someone moves out, we are in their cleaning, painting and remodeling the next day. I had a crew gut an apartment to the bare walls and redo everything inside in less than a week. It was leased by the following Monday. I use a service for marketing for apartments that helps me keep them occupied.

In the buildings I own, there are various levels of upgrading that are needed. Even the newest buildings have stuff wear out. We keep things fresh and new because we can afford to. Continue reading

Your Manufactured Products Can Be Automatically Placed into Shipping Boxes

Once you get your product into a nice package, you need to get it into shipping boxes. Many products are sold to retail vendors and wholesale distributors in various quantities. Most refer to it as being sold by the case. Case lots is another term. Whether you have two to a gross in your case lots, you need case packers to fill up those boxes. Some products require hand packing. Most are adaptable to machine packing to save in packaging costs.

Switching to a new packaging system can even boost product sales. There is a lot to be said about the effectiveness of good looking and consumer-friendly packaging. Setting up an existing product to be packaged using case packers may involve redesign of individual unit packaging methods. This new look could even boost product sales by renewing consumer interest.

What VFFS Packaging Machines Are Used for

If you make a product, you need to put it in a package. If it is any sort of food product, you need to make sure it arrives to the consumer safe, fresh and intact. Then it has to last in their homes whether it is a refrigerated product or not. Sounds daunting and it is. Packaging can be expensive to the point of approaching the ridiculous. For our cereal products we use VFFS packaging machines. That stands for Vertical Form Fill Seal. A continuous roll of film is rolled over on itself and sealed to form a tube, The tube is then sealed across to form the base of a bag, the product is dropped in, a top seal is formed and then it is repeated.

Your potato chips and pretty much every other bagged product is likely filled in this manner. Continue reading

Policies with redundancy protection

redundancy protectionFor the average Australian, shopping for income protection insurance can be somewhat overwhelming. Most policies have a variety of options and different levels of coverage, along with the fact that many of the insurance terms might be hard to understand. One feature of income protection insurance that is important to consider is redundancy protection. This policy option comes into play if the insured finds that they are involuntarily unemployed through a situation that is not related to illness or injury.

If you would like to know more about redundancy protection and why would you need to use income protection against redundancy, visit http://www.smartincomeprotection.com.au/what-is-redundancy-protection-for/. If you want to  compare the market price from other insurance companies, go to the main menu.

A policy that has redundancy protection will not provide any benefits payments in the event that you are involuntarily unemployed, but the insurance company will waive your premium payment for a few months while you search for new employment. Not having to pay your premium in this event means that you will be able to focus what resources you have on more important expenses and you won’t risk losing your coverage all together.

Australian consumers can visit the http://www.smartincomeprotection.com.au website for free income protection quotes and information on a wide range policy features.

Traversing Virtual Offices – Using Cyberspace Locations to Reach New Markets

For small and medium businesses, the upscale end of a business district can be daunting and impressive, and a nice address in the middle of the city can be desirable from a business standpoint. When a potential customer sees a letter with an address based in the middle of a city, it reassures them that the company is a reliable one, and when they ring the number on a business card and a receptionist answers, it’s a further sign of a successful business.


This is the world of virtual offices,and it looks and sounds exactly like a real office would, complete with phone answering and available physical locations for meetings and other business practices. These places allow the small or medium business owner to set up a place where their business is handled by actual office staff that know the ins and outs of the corporate world. Many people have reported that seeing a home address or a mobile phone number on a business card or in the general information of a website can make a business seem less legitimate, and therefore they are less likely to trust the business itself.


Virtual offices take away that unnecessary worry for the client and the ridiculous price point of hiring out a full office building for the small business owner, allowing them to put their funds where they’re needed most – to help the customer. This all culminates in helping smaller or medium sized business to break into new markets, and reach customer bases otherwise inaccessible without a corporate location. For instance, a small bakery looking to break into supplying large chain restaurants or supermarkets with baked goods might not be able to even get an interview if they turn up with a residential address listed as the business address, and a personal mobile phone number listed as the contact point, however with a corporate address in a big city street implies a larger bakery network is involved, and therefore that the bakery looking for a business meeting may very well be capable of handling the demand needed to supply larger chain stores. It’s opportunities like these that make the virtual office so appealing, and the receptionists on hand know how to answer the phones and redirect calls to personal numbers and mobile numbers for the actual business owner to answer, without needing to give out their mobile number as a contact point.

With the price of premium office space rental skyrocketing, a small or medium sized business owner likely can’t afford to pay for office space that may go unused, but might not get the potential clients needed to further their business if they don’t have the exclusive address or the landline phone number with receptionist. These problems were less prevalent in years gone by, as rental prices were lower and corporate businesses were few, however in the modern era the only sensible way to navigate the corporate world is from behind the helm of a respectable office building, and the best way to do that without breaking the bank is to go to www.servcorp.co.th/en/virtual-offices/to inspect the many offices and locations that can be afforded to the business owner in need of premium offices but not premium office prices.

In summation, the rigours of the corporate business world can be at the beck and call of the small business owner without the need for the supreme capital investment of the large or global business empire, but only when virtual office space is used instead of a physical, rented office space. All the luxuries of the modern business mogul afforded to the ambitious business owner, with none of the hassle of hiring, training, managing, firing, and replacing office staff.
