Retail POS Software

What Is the FrontRunners Quadrant?

A Graphic of the Top-Performing Retail POS Products

FrontRunners quadrants highlight the top software products for North American small businesses. All products in the quadrant are top performers. Small businesses can use FrontRunners to make more informed decisions about what software is right for them.

To create this quadrant, we evaluated over 100 retail software products. Those with the top scores for their capability and value made the quadrant.

Scores are based largely on reviews from real software users, along with other product performance details (e.g. what features they offer, how many customers they have).

Is One Quadrant Better Than the Others?

Nope, Products in Any Quadrant May Fit Your Needs

Every product in this quadrant offers a balance of capability (how much the products can do) and value (whether they re worth their price/cost) that makes them stand out in the race for small business software success.

FrontRunners has four sub-quadrants:

  • Upper Right = Leaders: Leaders are all-around strong products. They offer a wide range of functionality to a wide range of customers. These products are considered highly valuable by customers.
  • Upper Left = Masters: Masters may focus more heavily on certain key features or market segments than Leaders do. If you need a more specialized set of functionality without bells and whistles, then a product in the Masters quadrant might be right for you.
  • Lower Right = Pacesetters: Pacesetters may offer a strong set of features, but are not rated as highly on value. For example, a Pacesetter might offer greater functionality, but cost more.
  • Lower Left = Contenders: Contenders may focus on a more specialized set of capabilities that are priced at a higher point. This makes them ideal for companies willing to pay more for specific features that meet their unique needs.

Depending on the specific needs of a software buyer, a product in any of these sub-quadrants could be a good fit.

Why? To even be considered for this FrontRunners, a product had to meet a minimum user rating score of 3.1 for capability and 3.2 for value. This means that all products that qualify as FrontRunners are top-performing products in their market. They appear in the quadrant in relation to how their peers performed.

For some buyers, a specific FrontRunners sub-quadrant might be best. For example, certain retail software products with an emphasis inventory management fit perfectly at home in the Pacesetters quadrant.

You can download the full FrontRunners for Retail Management report here. It contains individual scorecards for each product on the Frontrunners quadrant.

How Are FrontRunners Products Selected?

Products Are Scored Based on User Reviews and Other Data

You can find the full FrontRunners methodology here. but the gist is that products are scored in two areas, Capability and Value.

To be considered at all, products must have at least 10 reviews and meet minimum user rating scores. They also have to offer a core set of functionality for example, all products considered offer point of sale, inventory management and barcode scanning capabilities, as well as at least one of the following: accounting management, customer management and reporting/analytics.

From there, user reviews and other product performance details, such as the product’s customer base and the features it offers, dictate the Capability and Value scores. Capability is plotted on the x-axis, and Value is plotted on the y-axis.

Just Follow Our External Usage Guidelines

Check out the FrontRunners External Usage Guidelines when referencing FrontRunners content. Except in digital media with character limitations, the following disclaimer MUST appear with any/all FrontRunners reference(s) and graphic use:

FrontRunners scores and graphics are derived from individual end-user reviews based on their own experiences, vendor-supplied information and publicly available product information; they do not represent the views of Gartner or its affiliates.

Runners Up

Providers listed as Runners Up were eligible for inclusion in the FrontRunners quadrant, including having 10+ product reviews, but their value or capability axis score was not high enough for positioning on the FrontRunners quadrant.

Buyer’s Guide

Retail Point of Sale (POS) systems, also known as POS software, have come a long way from being bolt-on applications for cash registers. Today, the cash register as the cornerstone piece of retail technology has been replaced by PCs, tablets and mobile devices.

Retail software vendors offer integrated software programs and POS systems for “mom-and-pop” stores to large retail chains, and everything in between. Retail software applications handle any combination of checkout, inventory control, customer management, e-commerce sales, merchandising and distribution. These systems help retailers automate the point of sale, improve inventory tracking and enable more effective management of customer data to grow profits and decrease store inefficiencies.

Continuously falling hardware and equipment costs, the emergence of mobile devices like iPads and new cloud-based POS offerings have led to more choices than ever. This leaves buyers with a daunting challenge as they try to determine the best application for their needs. The goal of this buyer’s guide is to help retailers understand the market as they begin their research. What we’ll cover:

Common Features of Retail Software

For buyers that manage a single store, the most important features to look for include:

  • Point of sale management
  • Inventory control
  • Accounting management
  • Customer relationship management

Retail software products are generally straightforward, helping retailers ring up customers, update inventory levels, present basic reports and keep track of customers.

Phalanx Close-In Weapon System

Last Line of Defense for air, land and sea

The Phalanx weapon system is a rapid-fire, computer-controlled, radar-guided gun that can defeat anti-ship missiles and other close-in threats on land and at sea.

At sea, it is designed to defeat anti-ship missiles and “close-in” threats that have pierced other lines of defense. On land, as part of the U.S. Army’s counter-rocket, artillery and mortar systems, it detects and destroys incoming rounds. It also helps provide early warning of attacks.

A self-contained package, the Phalanx weapon system automatically carries out functions usually performed by multiple systems: search, detection, threat evaluation, tracking, engagement and kill assessment. The Block 1B version of the system adds control stations that allow operators to visually track and identify targets before engagement.

The 1B variant’s configuration augments the Phalanx system’s proven anti-air warfare capability by adding a forward looking infrared sensor. It allows the system to be used against helicopters and high-speed surface craft at sea while the land-based version helps identify and confirm incoming dangers.

The Phalanx weapon system is installed on all U.S. Navy surface combatant ship classes and on those of 24 allied nations. The land-based version is forward deployed and has been used in combat.

E-Commerce – Advantages

E-Commerce advantages can be broadly classified in three major categories:

Advantages to Organizations

Using E-Commerce, organization can expand their market to national and international markets with minimum capital investment. An organization can easily locate more customers, best suppliers and suitable business partners across the globe.

E-Commerce helps organization to reduce the cost to create process, distribute, retrieve and manage the paper based information by digitizing the information.

E-commerce improves the brand image of the company.

E-commerce helps organization to provide better customer services.

E-Commerce helps to simplify the business processes and make them faster and efficient.

E-Commerce reduces paper work a lot.

E-Commerce increased the productivity of the organization. It supports “pull” type supply management. In “pull” type supply management, a business process starts when a request comes from a customer and it uses just-in-time manufacturing way.

Advantages to Customers

24×7 support. Customer can do transactions for the product or enquiry about any product/services provided by a company any time, any where from any location. Here 24×7 refers to 24 hours of each seven days of a week.

E-Commerce application provides user more options and quicker delivery of products.

E-Commerce application provides user more options to compare and select the cheaper and better option.

A customer can put review comments about a product and can see what others are buying or see the review comments of other customers before making a final buy.

E-Commerce provides option of virtual auctions.

Readily available information. A customer can see the relevant detailed information within seconds rather than waiting for days or weeks.

E-Commerce increases competition among the organizations and as result organizations provides substantial discounts to customers.

Advantages to Society

Customers need not to travel to shop a product thus less traffic on road and low air pollution.

E-Commerce helps reducing cost of products so less affluent people can also afford the products.

E-Commerce has enabled access to services and products to rural areas as well which are otherwise not available to them.

E-Commerce helps government to deliver public services like health care, education, social services at reduced cost and in improved way.

Consumer Identity Management systems step up where traditional ID systems fall down

Consumer Identity Management systems step up where traditional ID systems fall down

This vendor-written tech primer has been edited by Network World to eliminate product promotion, but readers should note it will likely favor the submitter’s approach.

Companies that sell products and services to consumers are collecting and storing massive volumes of customer data from not just POS, order management, customer service and e-commerce systems, but also mobile apps, social media feeds, online campaign forms and Web applications such as lead enrichment databases. As a result, new types of identity management systems have emerged to address the broader scale and risk of Web-based business processes and to give customers more control regarding how corporations use their data.

Enterprises today typically use Enterprise Identity Management Systems (EIDM). These applications were originally intended to manage employee profiles for risk management and to ensure that only certain employees could access certain data sets, depending upon their position and responsibilities.

EIDM uses an older, legacy technology that works amazingly well for this specific task. The core features include: enterprise single sign-on, web access management/web single sign-on, password management, directory management, user provisioning, federation and role-based access control. EIDM is all about automating repetitive tasks while providing visibility into who is accessing internal apps and why.

One downside of EIDM is that it runs into serious problems when a company attempts to use the technology to manage tens of thousands of profiles or more, which is the case for most good-sized consumer product companies. The technology, based on traditional or legacy directory or database stores, is not designed to handle low latency at large-scale, when a company might be managing millions of records and a large number of data attributes.

EIDM systems are primarily designed for tracking and managing employee access to applications, not the external activity of protecting and managing customer identities to support business growth.

A newer version of identity management tool is often called Consumer Identity Management (CIDM). These systems, which were originally home grown, were built with the idea that B2C companies need to worry more about access to customer data, over access to applications.

Here’s a common scenario that CIDM prevents: Each time a customer creates a profile through a different channel or application, a new record is created, expanding the customer “footprint” so to speak. Without containing all customer data in one place and the ability to apply proper controls and user preferences around specific data sets (a.k.a. individuals or segments of them), risk grows. There’s more opportunity for malicious insiders or external hackers to exploit customer data, with sensitive information such as phone numbers, email addresses and credit card information spread in multiple locations.

The reality of customer data living in silos also makes it harder for companies to have fruitful relationships with customers by not having a “single version of the truth.”

CIDM technology, which consists of identity data stores that are built to scale horizontally and integrate with modern application architectures and policy-based RESTful APIs, allows for the faster processing speed required to manage millions of profiles. Compared to EIDM, CIDM supports the sharing of profile data from multiple channels and multiple apps, which can drive new customer experiences and engagement models. CIDM can ultimately help companies better monetize their customer base through applying personalization.

Typically, CIDM allows consumers to manage their own profiles and designate which data will be shared with the company and how they would like to receive content (and which types) from the company. This process can occur from multiple channels, such as from the company’s website, social media accounts or at the cash register.

Whereas with enterprise ID management, the users (employees) have no choice about what data is provided and how it is used, with CIDM, the users (consumers) demand control of their data and proper protection. If they have doubts, they’ll go somewhere else.

To ease IT management, CIDM offers identity consolidation, which discovers multiple records for the same individual and combines them into one record. These systems also can provide adaptive access control so that if, for instance, the system detects a suspicious login attempt (from the middle of the night, in a location not typical for the user) it will add a step to the sign-in process for added security.

Considerations in deploying EIDM and CIDM

EIDM and CIDM solutions serve different purposes, although there is some overlap in access control, auditing, multifactor authentication and federation. Consumer ID management can handle some aspects of enterprise ID management, but EIDM is not well-equipped to handle large-scale consumer data management, as described above.

There are other reasons why EIDM is not ideal for consumer data management, including the lack of or limited identity proofing, support for third-party social media login, just-in-time provisioning and adaptive access controls. You can use the following guidelines for deploying and managing identity management solutions:

* Optimizing EIDM. Enterprise IDM is about automating processes for managing account provisioning, access management, changes to account access and terminations for the purposes of giving the right access to the right people at the right time. Optimizing EIDM platforms hinges on working with HR, application, and operations teams to capture existing provisioning processes and understanding core elements for deployment.

Operations teams are under significant pressure to keep up with account access requests. Many of these tasks can be automated through an employee self-service portal. Centralizing access management simplifies and speeds up the process of how employees login and request access to applications. Active accounts of terminated employees pose a significant risk to the enterprise. Partnering with HR to automate terminations will significantly improve these processes and reduce unauthorized breaches. Finally, automating reports for audit groups and providing access to data prior to the actual audit will save precious time and resources.

* OptimizingCIDM. Because CIDM platforms manage more data from more channels and are linked to customer experience, there’s a higher bar for performance than with EIDM systems. Availability and low latency is especially critical, and can affect results and brand if employees cannot access customer data in a timely manner for support or sales activities.

What’s more, customers demand quick response times for updating their own profile information (read: instantly). This can be achieved through proper instrumentation: a real-time view into system state using full stack tracing will help you achieve desired service-level agreements for uptime and optimizing the user experience. Consumer ID management should be both compliant and revenue-generating, thus it requires high scalability built on a carrier-grade, Internet infrastructure.

There are two core deployment options for CIDM. In the first, a broker model pulls data from many systems and creates a single view of the customer where IT can apply controls for access, security and preferences. The separate systems continue to exist and operate. This model is fine for the interim, but a best practice is to move to an aggregated or federated model to reduce vulnerabilities, eliminate silos of data and simplify controls. The federated model compiles all data from different systems into one central repository during the implementation phase. This simplifies the process of creating a rich, unified profile for each customer, which ultimately can drive better service and personalization to grow the business.

The final analysis

Enterprise identity management systems deliver the capabilities for risk management concerning employee access to applications and can save IT operations staff a lot of time. Employees benefit from a simpler login process and self-service portals that minimize time away from their core job function.

For large enterprises that collect, analyze and store consumer data, consumer identity management systems are the thread that ties together marketing activities, security and privacy needs, standardization efforts and governance. In many respects, a CIDM can help a company strike a balance between protection and access, which in the end should build trust with customers and still allow the business to pursue its revenue goals.

Health Care Systems – Four Basic Models #book #hotel #room

Health Care Systems – Four Basic Models

An excerpt from correspondent T.R. Reid s upcoming book on international health care, titled We re Number 37!, referring to the U.S. s ranking in the World Health Organization 2000 World Health Report. The book is scheduled to be published by Penguin Press in early 2009.

There are about 200 countries on our planet, and each country devises its own set of arrangements for meeting the three basic goals of a health care system: keeping people healthy, treating the sick, and protecting families against financial ruin from medical bills.

But we don t have to study 200 different systems to get a picture of how other countries manage health care. For all the local variations, health care systems tend to follow general patterns. There are four basic systems:

The Beveridge Model

Named after William Beveridge, the daring social reformer who designed Britain s National Health Service. In this system, health care is provided and financed by the government through tax payments, just like the police force or the public library.

Many, but not all, hospitals and clinics are owned by the government; some doctors are government employees, but there are also private doctors who collect their fees from the government. In Britain, you never get a doctor bill. These systems tend to have low costs per capita, because the government, as the sole payer, controls what doctors can do and what they can charge.

Countries using the Beveridge plan or variations on it include its birthplace Great Britain, Spain, most of Scandinavia and New Zealand. Hong Kong still has its own Beveridge-style health care, because the populace simply refused to give it up when the Chinese took over that former British colony in 1997. Cuba represents the extreme application of the Beveridge approach; it is probably the world s purest example of total government control.

The Bismarck Model

Named for the Prussian Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, who invented the welfare state as part of the unification of Germany in the 19th century. Despite its European heritage, this system of providing health care would look fairly familiar to Americans. It uses an insurance system the insurers are called sickness funds usually financed jointly by employers and employees through payroll deduction.

Unlike the U.S. insurance industry, though, Bismarck-type health insurance plans have to cover everybody, and they don t make a profit. Doctors and hospitals tend to be private in Bismarck countries; Japan has more private hospitals than the U.S. Although this is a multi-payer model Germany has about 240 different funds tight regulation gives government much of the cost-control clout that the single-payer Beveridge Model provides.

The Bismarck model is found in Germany, of course, and France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, Switzerland, and, to a degree, in Latin America.

The National Health Insurance Model

This system has elements of both Beveridge and Bismarck. It uses private-sector providers, but payment comes from a government-run insurance program that every citizen pays into. Since there s no need for marketing, no financial motive to deny claims and no profit, these universal insurance programs tend to be cheaper and much simpler administratively than American-style for-profit insurance.

The single payer tends to have considerable market power to negotiate for lower prices; Canada s system, for example, has negotiated such low prices from pharmaceutical companies that Americans have spurned their own drug stores to buy pills north of the border. National Health Insurance plans also control costs by limiting the medical services they will pay for, or by making patients wait to be treated.

The classic NHI system is found in Canada, but some newly industrialized countries Taiwan and South Korea, for example have also adopted the NHI model.

The Out-of-Pocket Model

Only the developed, industrialized countries perhaps 40 of the world s 200 countries have established health care systems. Most of the nations on the planet are too poor and too disorganized to provide any kind of mass medical care. The basic rule in such countries is that the rich get medical care; the poor stay sick or die.

In rural regions of Africa, India, China and South America, hundreds of millions of people go their whole lives without ever seeing a doctor. They may have access, though, to a village healer using home-brewed remedies that may or not be effective against disease.

In the poor world, patients can sometimes scratch together enough money to pay a doctor bill; otherwise, they pay in potatoes or goat s milk or child care or whatever else they may have to give. If they have nothing, they don t get medical care.

These four models should be fairly easy for Americans to understand because we have elements of all of them in our fragmented national health care apparatus. When it comes to treating veterans, we re Britain or Cuba. For Americans over the age of 65 on Medicare, we re Canada. For working Americans who get insurance on the job, we re Germany.

For the 15 percent of the population who have no health insurance, the United States is Cambodia or Burkina Faso or rural India, with access to a doctor available if you can pay the bill out-of-pocket at the time of treatment or if you re sick enough to be admitted to the emergency ward at the public hospital.

The United States is unlike every other country because it maintains so many separate systems for separate classes of people. All the other countries have settled on one model for everybody. This is much simpler than the U.S. system; it s fairer and cheaper, too.

Note – Reid s Beveridge model corresponds to what PNHP would call a single payer national health service (UK); Bismark model refers to countries that PNHP would say use non-profit sickness funds or a social insurance model (Germany); and National health insurance corresponds to single payer national health insurance (Canada, Taiwan). Reid s out-of-pocket model is what PNHP would call market driven health care. Some countries have mixed models (e.g. Sweden has some features of a national health service such as hospitals run by county government; but other features of national health insurance such as physicians being paid on a FFS basis). This explains why Reid might classify the Scandinavian systems as Beveridge while PNHP classifies them as single payer national health insurance.

Digital Communication Systems Engineering Using Software Defined Radio

Modern society is increasingly becoming dependent on digital communication systems in order to function properly, with a growing number of applications relying on these devices, e.g. personal health/body networks, defense/homeland security, navigation/localization, social networking, vehicular transportation. Consequently, digital communication systems education employing instructional laboratory guides via a hands-on learning approach would significantly help individuals studying in this concentration to synthesize many of these concepts by realizing them in actual prototype systems and conduct real-time “over-the-air” communication experiments. Given the complexity of these modern digital communication systems, especially those based on software-defined radio (SDR) technology, which requires an integrated understanding of the fundamentals from the communications and networking concentration as well as from other concentrations, it is expected that this hands-on educational paradigm will provide individuals with a systems-level understanding (breadth) of a modern digital communications device while focusing on several key aspects (depth) in the design and implementation of these systems.

With the generous technical and financial support of The Mathworks . this digital communication systems engineering approach will provide individuals with hands-on exposure to the design and implementation of modern digital communication systems using software-defined radio technology. The prototyping and experimentation of these systems via software-defined radio will enable greater flexibility in the assessment of design trade-offs as well as the illustration of “real world” operational behavior. Performance comparisons with quantitative analytical techniques will be conducted in order to reinforce digital communication system design concepts. Experimentation topics include software-defined radio architectures and implementations, digital signaling and data transmission analysis in noise, digital receiver structures (matched filtering, correlation), multicarrier communication techniques, radio frequency spectrum sensing and identification (energy detection, matched filtering), and fundamentals of radio resource management.

Electronic Resources for Digital Communication Systems Engineering with Software-Defined Radio

The book by Di Pu and Alexander M. Wyglinski, entitled: Digital Communication Systems Engineering with Software-Defined Radio (Artech House, February 2013, ISBN: 978-1-60807-525-6), presents a comprehensive educational framework for learning digital communication systems engineering using software-defined radio technology, ranging from the detailed coverage of several fundamental theoretical concepts to the step-by-step process of conducting actual over-the-air experimentation of digital communication systems using SDR. To assist the interested individual, there exists several electronic resources designed to support this book:

  • A collection of 26 sets of lecture slides (ZIP ) designed to complement the material convered in the book.
  • Source code for the experiments presented in Chapter 5 (ZIP ), Chapter 6 (ZIP ), Chapter 7 (ZIP ), and Chapter 8 (ZIP )

Energy Efficient

The Phoenix has up to a 96% thermal efficiency rating, making it Energy Star certified. According to Energy Star, heating water accounts for 15% of a home’s energy use. HTP high efficiency water heaters consume anywhere from 10-50% less energy than standard models. The Phoenix has a 96% efficiency rating—that means that 96 cents of every dollar is used toward heating compared to a standard efficiency unit with 60% which only provides 60 cents worth of energy toward heating.

It provides high system efficiency even during low load conditions. The modulating burner operates at a five to one turndown ratio for greater savings. This unit also complies with the SCZQMD Rule 1146.2 – ultra low NOx emissions – making it eco-friendly!

Versatility

The Phoenix is available in three gallon sizes (55, 80, 119) and four BTU inputs ranging from 100,000 to 199,000. It is suitable for both residential and commercial applications.

Quality Construction

The Phoenix is laser welded and constructed with a 316L stainless steel tank to resist corrosion and last longer. It is also manufactured with a hybrid cupronickel/stainless steel heat exchanger for ultimate heat transfer capabilities. It expands and contracts rapidly with the change in temperature, eliminating scale built up and promoting self-cleaning. No anode rods are needed to fight the corrosive properties of scale build up. The Phoenix is equipped with an outdoor sensor that auto adjusts for maximum efficiency. It is also created with 2” thick foam insulation for minimal heat loss!

A Better Experience with Every Installation

The Phoenix has a light weight tank for easier installation. It vents in inexpensive PVC and CPVC. Power vent or direct power vent options are available. These units come with intake PVC tee with screens and exhaust PVC coupling with screens. LP conversion kits are also included if needed (natural gas models only).

Solar and Sanitizer water heating options are also available with the Phoenix. The Phoenix Solar Gas Fired Water Heaters are the first modulating condensing solar water heaters with an integrated gas fired back-up all in one unit.

The Phoenix Sanitizer provides high temperature sanitation for those need to be clean applications. This is great for use in restaurants, breweries, wineries, dairies and more!

How to successfully recover data from a failed RAID

Recovering data from a failed RAID can easily turn into a costly ordeal. Please read this page carefully before proceeding. If you would like to get help from experts, please consider using our fee-based RAID recovery service.

First determine whether the RAID is hardware-based or software-based. The recovery procedures are very different.

Recovering a hardware RAID

First determine if the problem is caused by the underlying RAID mechanism. If it is not, follow the simpler recovery procedures for an ordinary drive. The following causes of problem are not related to the RAID:

  • Virus attacks.
  • The volume being deleted, resized, reformatted or otherwise changed in Disk Manager or other disk management utilities.

If the problem seems to be in the RAID mechanism, determine the operating state of the RAID and take the appropriate actions.

Avoid the most common mistakes that may cause data to become unrecoverable.

Hardware RAID operating states

Current status is normal.
No controller or disk errors.
No recent change in RAID configuration.

RAID is displayed as a single disk.
Volume configuration has not been changed (screenshot ).

Volume is inaccessible or accessible with missing files.

Current status is normal.
Disks have been reconfigured and disk order may have changed.

Abnormal RAID status such as “offline”, “inactive”, “undefined”, etc.
There may be disk or controller hardware errors.

RAID is not displayed. Sometimes the individual member disks are displayed as unformatted disks (screenshots ).

Volume is inaccessible.

Recovering a software RAID

First determine if the problem is caused by the underlying RAID mechanism. If it is not, follow the simpler recovery procedures for an ordinary drive. The following causes of problem are not related to the RAID:

  • Virus attacks.
  • The volume being reformatted.

If the problem seems to be in the RAID mechanism, determine the operating state of the RAID and take the appropriate actions.

Note that a RAID 0 is also referred to as a striped volume.

Security Systems Policy

Security Systems are one of the many but essential tools in the fight against crime, in particular, burglary and theft. The British Crime Survey shows that intruder alarms do reduce the likelihood of burglary.

The Security Systems Policy is a public document designed to give details of police response and the requirements for the private security industry involved in providing the installation, maintenance and monitoring of such systems.

The direction which the policy has taken can be summarised as follows:

  • To reduce the number of false calls passed to the police.
  • To relate the policy to police response to electronic security systems and not just intruder alarms.
  • To place technical requirements into nominated standards and codes of practice.
  • To place responsibility for compliance with those standards in the hands of approved Independent Inspectorates. Enforcement of standards should not be a police function
  • To place the supervision of those Independent Inspectorates under UKAS standards.
  • To avoid the repetitive discussions over technical and administrative matters which do not affect the nature of police response or the level of false calls passed to the police.
  • To achieve a unified approach to the administration process
  • To maintain the credibility of security systems as crime prevention and detection methods

  • Security Systems Policy Appendix F Annexe B 2015
Advice to installers who wish to be compliant with police forces in order to install, maintain and monitor security systems for police response
  • The security company must first of all be certified in accordance with the policy by a certification body accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). Details of such bodies can be found in Appendix ‘H’ of the policy.
  • When accredited, the security company needs to apply to the Home Force where its principle operating offices/registered office is based requesting to go on that force’s compliant list of companies. The letter of application must be accompanied with Appendices ‘B’ and Appendix ‘C’ of the policy.
  • Once a company has been accepted by their own force, they can then request to go on the compliant list of other forces using Appendix ‘B’.

    Wireless alarm systems with constant monitoring are more affordable than ever and will give you the peace of mind you deserve.

    An In Home security alarm monitoring system is a crucial part of building a new house, or upgrading an old one. In fact, if you are simply moving into a different, but not necessarily new, house, the alarm system and whether it is monitored should be a question you ask the previous homeowner.

    Most people know enough to take basic precautions in protecting their home—like leaving an outside light on so neighbors can see an intruder if you are away, locking the doors, owning a barking dog, and password protecting a computer system. Many people try to keep valuables locked in a safe or at least hidden in a location they hope will be unsuspected. The problem with all of our personal efforts to practice safety is that we are human, and it is almost impossible to think of every opportunity that we might accidentally give to a burglar. That’s why we need the protection of a home security system that includes the services of a monitoring company. It is the company’s job to be alert when you cannot be, either because you are not home or because you are sleeping or simply caught off guard.

    Buildings of all types, and even cars are burglarized every day. Some of the thieves are simply desperate people who may be unable to find work and have resorted to crime in an attempt to survive. Others, the more dangerous crooks, are professionals who know every trick in the book for staging a robbery on private property. Furthermore, the best crooks even know how to steal items that will be of great value to themselves but that you will have a hard time tracing once the items have left your home. Certain things like jewelry and antiques you don’t use every day might not even be missed until long after the burglar has pawned your belongings in a location far away from you. It just isn’t worth depending on yourself or your family members to be alert 24/7, 365 days a year. When you rely on a company to protect your home for you, just having a sign up indicating that you have a home alarm system will often deter a burglar

    Thanks to the new wireless technology, a home alarm system can be installed in your home with only an hour or two of work. The monitored systems need to be installed by licensed professionals who can communicate with the company and check to make sure everything is working properly before they leave.

    If you think you are mechanically inclined enough to install your own system, you can purchase an inexpensive wireless system at your local hardware store, but if it doesn’t do what you want, you are responsible for the results. Even with a professional system, however, you can get very reasonable prices and you can choose the features you want included. For example, if you already have a dependable fire alarm and/or sprinkler system, you may not want to pay an additional price to have a fire or smoke alarm included with your security alarm.

    Of course, if you do not already have adequate protection for disasters other than burglary, you can get alarm systems that include flood warnings, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide sensors and more. You can also have closed circuit TV, so if you work in a place where you could take a glance at your home yourself, you might want to check that out. Just be aware that the more bells and whistles you include, the more expensive it will be. Furthermore, before worrying about the add-ons, you need to analyze your own home, counting the windows and doors that need protection. You also need to decide whether you want a silent alarm that only notifies the police, or one with a siren that will alert all the neighbors as well. If you live too far away from other homes, a siren will just give the crook time to grab what he can and get away before the police get there

    Added benefit of s security system
    In addition to protecting you against a break-in, a security system may also save you money by lowering the rates on your homeowner’s insurance. Some companies give as much as a 20% discount for having an approved security system. Furthermore, if you ever decide to sell your home, having a security system already installed and active could increase the value of your home. Finally, some alarm system monitoring companies give big discounts on the system itself—some even giving you the equipment for free once the system is activated—while others will knock off a month or two of service fees if you pay for the whole year at once.

    Secure Your Home while Saving Money!
    A house alarm security system has a secondary benefit that could help pay for itself in time. That is, you could be eligible for lower rates on your homeowner’s insurance. If your insurance carrier does not offer such a discount, you might consider shopping around, as many companies give as much as a 20% discount for having an approved, in home security system.

    Jacksonville Air Conditioning and Heating: Service, Repair, and Equipment Contractors

    This local page provides resources and information about A/C and heating service, repair, maintenance, and installers in Jacksonville, Florida. This information includes featured HVAC contractors plus a link to our free and handy printable grid to compare price quotes. On this page you will also find sources of energy efficiency and equipment rebates, the ratio of hours of cooling and heating needed each year and much more.

    About HVAC contractors

    The contractor you choose will make a big impact on your satisfaction and purchase of a new air conditioning and heating system. Why? They determine the size and type of equipment for your situation and they control the quality of the installation. If you have not yet seen them, in the top navigation menu on this page you will find quick tips and expanded topics on two essential topics: how to select the right HVAC contractor and how to buy a new heating and cooling system.

    Most air conditioning and heating contractors stock and install a limited number of equipment brands. Some independent contractors will order and install any brand of new equipment you prefer to buy. Most of these service companies will perform repair and maintenance on all brands of central heaters, furnaces and air conditioners.

    In addition to heating and cooling for indoor comfort and energy savings, many HVAC companies perform air quality work such as air filters, dehumidifiers and humidifiers, ventilation and prevention of toxic carbon monoxide gas from your furnace. However, not all of these perform energy efficiency improvements to houses or buildings. If the service company you select does not perform conservation improvements on homes or buildings, they should be able to recommend another Jacksonville company who does.

    How to compare air conditioning and heating equipment price quotes

    Air conditioning and heating systems are made of components or units, and these can be interchanged to yield many possible combinations of performance and efficiency. Additionally, based on the particular situation in your home or building, these components must be chosen and installed to accommodate them. For these reasons, comparing proposals, features, and prices can be more than confusing.

    To help you sort through your options, use our free and printer-friendly cost comparison organizer found in the navigation on the top of this page. If you get multiple price quotes, it will save you a lot of time and headaches. This grid allows you to compare the essential features from contractor bids including: main components; equipment efficiency in SEER and AFUE; manufacturer’s and installer’s warranties; and equipment brand.

    How the Jacksonville climate and resources affect your HVAC needs and decisions

    On the heating and cooling map of the U.S. with 5 zones, the Jacksonville area lies in cooling zone 4 and heating zone 5. These require approximately 1986 cooling hours and 1263 heating degree-days per year. As a general and relative guide, the average Jacksonville home would need 1.6 times more air conditioning than heating over a calendar year. Proximity to the ocean, lakes or other topographical or climatic influences can cause microclimates, so be sure to rely on actual measurements and calculations from your heating and air conditioning contractor.

    The humid subtropical climate on the east coast of Florida brings Jacksonville mild winters and hot summers average 91 degrees F. with high humidity. The region also has many days throughout the year in which home heating and cooling may not be necessary. However, on these same days, a dehumidifier, whole house air filter or fresh air ventilation could make a huge difference in your indoor comfort and well being.

    Pollen, allergies and air filters in Jacksonville

    In Jacksonville air filters are a necessity to many residents. Certain northeast coastal Florida plants influence what type of air filter you and your A/C system need. Some common examples include the oak, juniper, and bayberry trees; ragweed in the fall; and flowers in the spring. For updates on the types and levels of pollen, visit the daily pollen count and allergy forecast for the area.

    Local utility and conservation providers

    For the Jacksonville area, the DSIRE database for Florida lists resources for energy efficiency rebates and incentives. In many cases, your A/C and heating contractor can coordinate all available energy conservation and rebate programs, from federal tax credits to local rebates and incentives.

    The availability of primary fuels such as natural gas help determine which heating equipment will give you the best combination of comfort and lower utility bills. Since natural gas is generally available in Jacksonville neighborhoods, many homes and buildings have gas central furnaces rather than heat pumps. If natural gas prices climb faster than electricity rates, this trend might change. In situations where a heat pump makes the best choice, some of the factors that affect air source heat pumps include the average daily temperature, fluctuations in temperature, and humidity.

    How a whole house approach includes the envelope in the load calculation

    If you plan to get price quotes to buy a new A/C and heating system, look for contractors who will insert the heating and cooling demands of the NE Florida coastal climate along with the size and condition of your home or building envelope into a the critical load calculation. For many reasons, you should avoid rule of thumb load calculation based only on square footage or using the same size system as the old one without verification. This calculation requires considerable expertise or software and interpretation.

    Resources for HVAC technical or vocational training in the Jacksonville area

    If you are interested in learning more about the technical aspects of air conditioning and heating in the Jacksonville area, such as schools or courses to get a Florida HVAC license, here are some local or regional links:

    Florida Chapter of ACCA: State chapter of the Air Conditioning Contractors Association of America.

    ERP is Available from a Number Vendors in Different Forms to Fill the Needs of All Types and Sizes of Manufacturing Companies

    Let’s start with the question, what is an ERP system application? According to Wikipedia, “Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems integrate internal and external management information across an entire organization. ERP systems automate this activity with an integrated software application. Their purpose is to facilitate the flow of information between all business functions inside the boundaries of the organization and manage the connections to outside stakeholders.”

    Primarily a system for manufacturers (although there are many other broad-based information systems marketed as ERP in other industries), ERP is available from a wide range of vendors in a number of different forms to fill the needs of all types and sizes of manufacturing companies.

    ERP solutions can be categorized in a number of different ways—by the size of the solution or the market share of the supplier; by the specific vertical industry that the system is designed to support; or according to the technology platform it runs on.

    BY SIZE

    The two “800 pound gorillas” of ERP system examples are SAP and Oracle, with the most market share—between the two taking in about half of the total dollars spent on ERP. Next in line, and there are differing opinions about actual revenue and relative position, are Microsoft (Dynamics GP and Dynamics AX), Infor (SyteLine, VISUAL, and a number of other solutions), CDC, Epicor, IFS, QAD, Consona, and many more.

    BY TECHNOLOGY

    In years past, there used to be a significant division in ERP solutions based on the operating environment (hardware / operating system / database) in which they functioned. Much of that distinction has disappeared or become irrelevant with the near universal adoption of web-based architecture and Windows or browser presentation layer and user interface. Nevertheless, ERP solutions can be categorized by server platform and database, although many solutions can be implemented in several environments. For example, there are versions of SAP’s products that operate on mainframe systems, UNIX or Windows/Intel platforms. Many of Infor’s products use the IBM Systemi (AS/400) platform and integral DB2 database (Infor XA, Infor LX, Infor Prism, Infor System21) but other Infor products reside on WinTel platforms (VISUAL, Syteline).

    Probably the most significant technology differentiator is database system but here again many products will work with a choice of databases, most often Oracle or SQLServer (Microsoft). Many ERP buyers prefer to limit the number of technology suppliers they want to deal with, simplifying the support and maintenance tasks. Microsoft is the winner in those accounts as companies almost inevitably standardize on Microsoft Office products, prefer the Microsoft SQLServer database, and gravitate toward an “all Microsoft” solution including the platform for their ERP system.

    BY INDUSTRY

    There are two major divisions in terms of industry applicability, with many products adding capabilities to “bridge the gap” and serve both markets. Initially, ERP evolved in support of the “discrete” side of manufacturing—companies that deal with hard goods fabricated and assembled from individual parts. The “process” side of manufacturing, working with materials and products that are or contain liquids and powders (materials and products that pour) felt left out and eventually got their own ERP solutions specifically designed to support their needs. More recently, discrete-oriented ERP solutions continue to add process capabilities (the ability to handle “recipes”, potency, continuous processing schedules, product grading, etc.). Examples of process industry solutions include Infor Prism and CDC Ross ERP.

    Specific industries benefit from ERP solutions designed to support industry-specific needs. Examples include Encompix for engineer-to-order manufacturing; Axis for metals, wire and cable; Cimnet for printed circuit board manufacturing; DTR for plastics manufacturing; and Relevant for Department of Defense contractors.

    Home Security Systems: A Good Investment

    There is no better investment than the one that protects your family and your home from those that would break into your home and do harm. Home security systems are a quality, worthy investment if they are chosen with care and properly installed and maintained. The presence of a home security system is often enough to deter burglars against invading the home. Burglars are not inclined to work hard to steal. With the many types of home security systems on the market these days, there are several things a homeowner should consider when giving thoughts to purchasing one for your home.

    Before deciding on which one of the many home security systems to purchase and have installed in your home, it is a good idea to sit down and make a comprehensive list of your thoughts about pros and cons and what you feel is needed in a good home security system. Do a bit of research into typical home security systems and what they offer in order to see what is available as you make this list. Once you have figured out what details you wish to have in a customized home security system, then the shopping part of things can begin.

    Home security systems have quite a wide range in pricing. Part of your research should include figuring out what options are available in what price range of home security systems. It is a good idea to have a set budget in mind to avoid over spending and causing additional stress on the finances and relationships. A set budget will allow you to consider the options carefully and include only those home security systems options that will suit the needs of your family and your home. Budgeting keeps the frame of reference of spending fresh in mind.

    When shopping for home security system specifications and options, be sure to include a home alarm with motion sensors that cover the inside of the home as well as perimeter detectors that protect the windows and doors. This is often the first line of defence in home security. Outdoor motion sensors and security light will set off alerts that there is an intruder trying to gain entry into your home. Often burglars will run at the first sign of any sensor activation. Alarm sensors should ideally be applied liberally to all rooms, windows and doors on the street level of the house. Obviously, a larger home will need a larger amount of sensors to cover all the bases adequately. Lastly, be sure the home security systems will alert the authorities for you. This will enable you and your family to be away from home knowing that the police would be alerted in the event of a burglary.

    line when an alarm is on.

    IR. InfraRed lightInfrared (IR ) light is electromagnetic radiation with longer wavelengths than those

    Installing A Home Security CCTV

    Choosing a good CCTV for monitoring your house is an excellent idea, as it will help
    you increase the security in and around your house.
    Once you have bought a good CCTV that will be able to record the activity in your house,
    the first step that you need to take is to install the CCTV. Before that, you need to decide
    where to put up the CCTV. This is rather important as you should position the camera at a crucial position,
    which will allow you to observe who is entering and leaving the house.
    So the position will be of utmost importance. After you have decided upon a good position,
    there is the tiny matter of installing the camera. Now you can either do this by yourself or
    you can entrust the job to a professional. If you want to do it all by yourself,
    then be sure to follow the instructions specified with the CCTV.
    Each model is different than the other, so be sure to read the instructions first.
    If you do not want to go through all of this hassle, you can simply call upon a professional to get the
    CCTV installed, and it will be done in a flash

    The indoor home alarm systems

    Burglar alarms come in various types. All of these types differ in their functionality and applications.
    Broadly, the main two types can be classified as indoors and outdoors.
    Let us go through some of the most common types of alarms which are used in the former surroundings.
    • Passive infrared detectors
    There is a reason why these are the most popular type of alarms. It is because that not only are they affordable,
    they are extremely reliable. Their basic detection technique is that they can sense objects which emit infrared
    waves i.e. heat. A change of temperature between adjacent surroundings is what they basically look for.
    • Ultrasonic detectors
    Unlike the passive infrared detectors, these emit their own energy. Such devices transmit ultrasonic
    waves of frequencies under 75 kHz which are not audible to humans. They can detect any kind of motion due to the
    change in the frequency of the waves.
    • Microwave detectors
    Their working principle is rather elementary. They use a transmitter to emit microwaves and then use a receiver
    to detect whether any of them get reflected back. Both the transmitter and receiver are placed in a single housing.
    These are just few of the many other kinds of indoor devices available. Contact us for proper installation
    at the most affordable prices.

    Why people install security systems home and office

    There are several reasons why a homeowner may install a security system but the most common reason is to
    protect their home from burglars. If you actually take a minute to stop and look around your home to see all of the items
    that you own, you will quickly realize that there are a lot valuable items in your home.
    Installing a security system is the only way to make sure that these items are actually secure when you are not at home.
    Another reason why people install security systems in their home is to give themselves the peace
    of mind knowing that all of their prized possessions are safe and sound when they are not at home.
    Worry about the safety of your possessions while on vacation is a great way to ruin an otherwise fantastic vacation.
    Having to stress about the belongings in your home can really dampen the mood of a vacation,
    which is why so many people elect to install a security system in their home.
    This way they know that everything they own is secure while they enjoy their time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    Gmail mass email tips: Avoid the spammy look with the personalized touch

    Gmail contact groups are great for sending a single email message to a specific set of people, but what if you want to give each email a personal touch, such as with a newsletter or promotional offer? Unlike Microsoft Office. Google’s productivity suite doesn’t have a native mail-merge feature you can leverage to do this. But don’t sweat it: With a little help from Google Sheets and a free downloadable script, you can personalize bulk email messages in Gmail in minutes.

    Just remember, Google allows you to send only 100 emails per day using scripts. Here’s how to get started.

    1. Create a spreadsheet

    Log into your Google Drive account. On left sidebar, click New Google Sheets to create a spreadsheet. You’ll be importing your email recipients’ contact information here, so give it a descriptive name.

    Next, go to the menu bar and select Add-ons Get add-ons. This takes you to Google’s add-on store. In the search window, type a name for your mail merge script—for this example, we’ll use Yet Another Mail Merge —and hit Enter.

    This is a public mail merge script. Click the Free button, and a window will open, asking for various permissions to access Google Sheets, Contacts, and Gmail. Click Accept. A window will pop up under Add-ons on the menu bar, indicating that the script has been installed. Click the X to close it.

    The Yet Another Mail Merge script adds a menu to Google Sheets under Add-ons.

    2. Import your contacts

    The next step is to import your email recipients into the spreadsheet. Click Add-ons Yet Another Mail Merge Import contacts from a group. A small window will open with a drop-down menu of all the contact groups in your Gmail account. You can also go into Gmail, and create a new group with all the contacts you want to include in your mail merge. Then repeat the steps above and select this group from the drop-down menu. Click Import contacts. and those contacts will populate your spreadsheet.

    Your contacts import into Google Sheets, complete with column headers.

    3. Draft your email message

    Now open a new browser tab and log into your Gmail account. Click Compose to open a new message. Type a title in the subject field and compose the body of your message. Then type $%headername% anywhere you want to insert column data from your spreadsheet. For example, type Dear $%First Name% if you want each email to use the recipient’s first name in the greeting. Once you’re done, click X to close the message, and it will automatically save to your Drafts folder.

    4. Perform the mail merge

    Go back to your spreadsheet and click Add-ons Yet Another Mail Merge Start mail merge. In the window that opens, select the title of your email message from the Drafts drop-down menu. Check the Track Emails Opened box if you want to see which of your recipients opens the email.

    The text EMAIL_SENT will appear next to each contact in the Merge Status column of your spreadsheet after a successful mail merge.

    To make sure everything is formatting correctly, click Send me a test email to receive a sample message. Toggle to Gmail and check the message. If everything looks good, return to that dialog box and click Send Emails. You’ll now see EMAIL_SENT next to each contact in the Merge Status column of your spreadsheet. If you want to perform another mail merge from that same spreadsheet, remember to delete that text from the Merge Status column of each recipient you want to email again.

    DECT 6 #wireless #phone #systems #for #business

    #

    Whether you re opening a new office and need phones, or planning to update your existing phone system, there s a technology you need to know about that eliminates phone system wiring hassles and expense.

    With only one phone jack in the entire office it lets you put four cordless phones in service with no need to run cabling, no need to install phone jacks at each desk, and no need for any servers or computers. It s simple, reliable and economical. It s called DECT 6.0 .

    Well, maybe I should clarify that last statement. If you re still using POTS (the “plain old telephone system”, aka the monopoly phone company) you don t need any computers or servers. But if you have moved (or are about to move) to VoIP. of course you ll need a computer that connects you to the Internet.

    It stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications. It s an industry standard that defines how dial tone can be passed via radio signals to a cordless phone. A DECT phone system comes with a base unit. It plugs into the phone jack that delivers dial tone into your office or building. When you make or receive a call, your cordless handset communicates by radio with the base unit. DECT phones are digital, not the analog cordless phones of years past.

    How Does DECT Help You?

    • The DECT cordless technology works whether your dial tone is delivered by a POTS phone line or a digital VoIP line. If you re still using POTS but plan to upgrade to VoIP, your DECT phone will continue to serve you well
    • DECT phones are cordless and convenient. Many can be used with headsets, giving you continuous communication no matter where in the office you may be
    • If you re currently running voice over your data network and do not have quality of service (QoS) technology installed, DECT will eliminate the dropped words, noise, static and distortion your phone system probably generates
    • You can forget about the complexity of punch-down panels, wiring closets and cabling when you switch to DECT. It eliminates the costly nightmare of pulling phone cables through the walls and ceilings when you need a phone in a new location

    Is DECT Right for You?

    The original DECT 6.0 technology limits the number of cordless handsets to four. Subsequently, manufacturers (such as Spectralink ) have extended the capability of DECT 6.0 using proprietary hardware to support more than 4,000 phones. However that s a much more complex and expensive solution. I want to focus on the simplicity of DECT for small businesses in this article.

    Clearly, a company with a boat load of inside sales reps dialing out or receiving calls all day isn t a good prospect for a four-line DECT phone. Yet for millions of small businesses DECT makes the perfect phone system. Retailers, service companies (think lawn care, plumbers, electricians, contractors, medical and dental offices) and others who rely primarily on face-to-face contact with customers rather than phone contact, are ideal candidates for DECT.

    DECT phones have been available in the U.S. since 2005. Manufacturers competing for market share have differentiated their products and added important features. For instance, you can buy DECT phones with Bluetooth to link with one or more cell phones, allowing you to make or receive cell phone calls at your cordless handset. If you d like to learn more, check in at Cordless-Phone-Update.com for their summary of phones and the overall DECT marketplace.

    Best Home Security 2017

    Home security systems detect intruders in your home, and subsequently alert the proper authorities. They usually include wall and window sensors, motion detectors, video cameras, and yard signs. In 2013, the average home invasion rate was four per minute. Purchasing a home security system is the best option for protecting your belongings and safety.

    When choosing a home security system, it is important to consider additional features. Frequent add-ons include fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, and flooding detection. Another additional feature, home automation, allows the user to remotely control all home security features. If you decide to purchase a comprehensive home security system with all the add-ons, you ll be protected not only from intruders, but from all other manner of potential threats.

    As with any major financial decision, it s important to thoroughly research a few different companies and read through home security system reviews. Most home security providers will conduct an on-site inspection and offer a quote with different coverage options. Verify what all the costs are, including monthly fees, equipments costs, and whether there is an installation fee.

    Before finalizing your home security system purchase, take the time to verify the company s reputation, their customer support, and get written cancellation policies and auto renewals. Does the monitoring company guarantee 24 hour coverage? Is intruder detection an add-on or a core function? Will there be an installation fee? Does the system come with a term-length contract, or is it indefinite?

As a part of this ERP Initiative, the Committee is organizing ERP Courses through leading ERP Vendors in the country.

    Practical Workshops

    Considering increasing demand from members to provide practical exposure to use of computers as an audit tool – GAS/ CAAT, IS Audit of Banks, Systems Audit, the Committee on Information Technology has started organizing practical workshops on so many topics. Many Practical Workshops have been organized in different parts of the country and have been very well received by members participating in them.

    Computer Awareness Programme for Members

    The Committee on Information Technology and Continuing Professional Education Committee of ICAI have jointly started offering “Computer Awareness Programme for Members” as a part of the Institute initiative to ensure that the profession is IT Savvy. This course aims to provide the necessary hands-on practical training on use of computers to mundane activities – Word Processing using MS-Word, Analysis & Charting using MS-Excel, Accessing Mails using Outlook Express and searching the internet for useful information, apart from providing introduction to computers and associated terms.

    Get the Best VoIP for Your Business

    Introduction to Business VoIP

    Chances are, you already use some form of VoIP or internet phone service, whether it s in your business or personal life. If you ve ever used Skype or WhatsApp, or any kind of Internet phone to make a call, you re experiencing the power of Voice Over IP, or to put it simply-making calls over the internet.

    When it comes to using VoIP for your business, there are some factors to consider before you choose a provider. The best VoIP providers can help you lower costs, reach more customers, and even enhance your mobility and productivity. The wrong VoIP companies could be too expensive for you or simply not understand the importance of this tool in your business.

    Benefits of Having a Businesses VoIP Phone System

    The full benefits of having a Voice over IP phone will depend on the size and type of business you own. However, loosely speaking, many business benefit from:

    Lower Costs – Businesses on average see a reduction in costs of between 50% and 75% after switching to VoIP. This is a combination of reduced communication expenses and logistical benefits.

    Productivity – Investing in internet phone allows companies to let their employees work remotely, which can increase productivity by almost 20%. Also, employees will be able to reach each other more easily, thus saving time.

    Reliability – Because of QoS (Quality of service) protocols, common issues like jitter, latency or delay are monitored for a satisfactory standard for business practice. In a recent study, less than 0.5% of survey respondents reported being dissatisfied with VoIP call quality.

    Customer Satisfaction – Unsatisfied customers would rather switch services than complain, so customer service needs to be more on top of visitors needs than ever before. Giving your customers more ways to reach your business is simple with the help of VoIP. This could be helping employees work remotely, increasing office hours or just offering the customers a number to call when a problem arises.

    VoIP Features

    Voice over IP companies will differ greatly from one to the next. Some of the most popular features are:

    Migration of your current numbers

    Voicemail to Email

    Types of VoIP Systems

    The biggest difference in costs is going to be dependent on the type of VoIP service you choose for your business. There are three main types of VoIP systems available:

    Hosted System. Similar to a website hosting plan, this means that the vendor owns the hardware, and your business leases or buys the phones. Maintenance will be handled by the vendor, too. Companies will usually charge a subscription to use the internet phone system. This includes lower costs up-front, and no maintenance, so it works well for businesses without their own IT staff. However, it is less customizable and reliant on the vendor s servers.

    On Premise System. In this scenario, your business owns the hardware, and that means that you are responsible for any upgrades or maintenance work. You ll of course have a higher initial cost, but if you re a larger business who wants the best options for customization and security-it could be a good choice.

    Managed System. The business still owns the equipment, but the vendor takes responsibility of the hard work like set up and maintenance. This is a great best of both worlds option, allowing you the good things about both on premise and hosted solutions. The costs are higher, and your downtime is more likely than if you went with a hosted solution.

    What to Know

    Here are some of the most common VoIP related terms made simple.

    PBX: Private Branch Exchange is like a private telephone network which works within a company or organization. This might be in one building, across multiple offices, or even globally across many countries and time zones. The users of the system can easily communicate with one another on one private and secure phone network. If your VoIP provider offers a PBX, this will be using your LAN or WAN data network rather than the traditional telephone network. There are many VoIP services which offer a PBX system. including some of the top providers on the market.

    VoIP and Call Centers: Traditional call centers have been completely revolutionized by VoIP technology. Customer service is improved by having always on support, with better quality and efficiency. Customers can be immediately routed to the right technician for their query, improving technical support at every stage of the game. A Voice over IP system for a virtual call center means that you can integrate headquarters, remote offices and even outsourced locations seamlessly. You can even include agents who are working from home.

    Web Conferencing: VoIP can help your company make meetings easier and more efficient. Arrange for entire teams to meet face to face without spending a cent on flights or managing dozens of schedules. Look for solutions which are multi-channel and don t need specific hardware for a certain OS. Of course, you will need audio, video and chat capabilities. You might also want screen-sharing, uploading files, and recording functionality, too. If you re looking to streamline your business, than web conferencing software might be for you.

    How to Choose a VoIP Provider for Business

    There s certainly a lot to think about! To help you make the best choice, and ensure you get all the features you need for the most competitive price on the market, our experts have done a lot of the hard work for you.

    Abstract

    A carotenoid-derived hormonal signal that inhibits shoot branching in plants has long escaped identification. Strigolactones are compounds thought to be derived from carotenoids and are known to trigger the germination of parasitic plant seeds and stimulate symbiotic fungi. Here we present evidence that carotenoid cleavage dioxygenase 8 shoot branching mutants of pea are strigolactone deficient and that strigolactone application restores the wild-type branching phenotype to ccd8 mutants. Moreover, we show that other branching mutants previously characterized as lacking a response to the branching inhibition signal also lack strigolactone response, and are not deficient in strigolactones. These responses are conserved in Arabidopsis. In agreement with the expected properties of the hormonal signal, exogenous strigolactone can be transported in shoots and act at low concentrations. We suggest that endogenous strigolactones or related compounds inhibit shoot branching in plants. Furthermore, ccd8 mutants demonstrate the diverse effects of strigolactones in shoot branching, mycorrhizal symbiosis and parasitic weed interaction.
