Using a stock control system to improve your business

Being successful in sales requires always being able to ask for the business and having the right information at the right time to help your customers understand why they should do business with you. I worked in copier sales for 7 years and we worked off sales leads and cold calls to gain business. At that time we had no CRM or stock management software that actually linked the customers we were calling on to a main application or that helped to manage our warehouse of parts and incoming shipments. This had it’s drawbacks if we had someone leave the organization and their record keeping was less than stellar. This basically meant we were starting all over in that particular geography.

Having a stock control system that integrates these functions and makes them available on a web based interface can help improve the profitability and efficiency of your business. By having a stock management software solution your teams can know which products are available and better identify upsell opportunities. Management will know which products are most profitable and which products are not moving at all with a simple glance. You can increase your speed and response to your customer allowing you to capitalize on market events without having to stop and lose precious time and momentum.

A paint agitator for plastic or stainless totes

Posted on 5th December 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

The original ITM (integrated tote mixer) was designed for the automotive industry in order to provide a high level of consistency across various paint mixes. With the need to have a paint agitator that would provide the same level of consistency across various industries the design has been adapted to both stainless and plastic totes. The advantage of the ITM system is that you can mix and match drive and agitator systems so that you can have one solution for many applications. Companies are looking to simple solutions that can be applied across different areas of their business and this is what Dynamix and the integrated mixers that they have designed offer today’s companies.

How Computer Internet Technology Has Changed the Way People Rent DVDs

The poor old video store has all but vanished from our high streets. And for once, I’m not upset. Yes, I used to like browsing the shelves and coming home with something I never would have thought to rent if I hadn’t seen it in front of me. And yes I used to like the social interaction. Getting out of the house and all that.

But what’s replaced it is an example of the best uses of the internet. Online DVD rental, in which you pay a monthly fee for unlimited choice (and, if you pay the premium rate, unlimited amounts of films per month), has opened a world of cinema to even the most casual home user.

These days I can get the latest releases as soon as they come out. And I can get the most obscure titles whenever I want. All I do is keep a list of films that I want t see, in the site that supplies me with my online DVD rental. The package I choose (I have one that lets me have unlimited films per month, with a maximum of two at home at any one time) dictates the quantity of films I get access to within a 28 day period.

I can keep the films for as long as I want. So if I don’t fancy it tonight, or have something to do, then I can just save it until I do. I just don’t get a new one until I have watched the old one – so to keep up with subscription payments I have to make sure I watch more films per month than the equal amount would cost me at the only local video store I have left. That’s not hard – for what three recently released movies would cost me, in my local video store, I get unlimited film watching every month.

There are more ways to watch movies with online DVD rental than simply getting the disc in the post too. You can watch films online, many of them included in your price. Some you have to pay extra for, but these are usually the movies that have not yet actually come out on DVD – so you get a chance to see them before anyone else.

You can rent games from the same place too, and for the same kind of price and deal. So you can keep a game for as long as you want – but you don’t get more until you send your allocation back. Here, the service actually ceases to be such good value – unless you like playing a game for a couple of days and then returning it. Given that my monthly subscription costs the same as one game for a modern console – and that I would normally play one game obsessively for a few months before swapping – I can end up paying six times more for one game than I would have done if I had bought it to own.

For films, though, there is nothing like an online DVD service. Where else am I going to find the classics I had forgotten I loved? Not even my old high street store would have had half the films I get from my online supplier. And I can use a function similar to Amazon’s recommendation service, to explore films I have never even heard of based on what I am watching already. Another night in with the popcorn it is then!

The ITM paint agitator

Posted on 4th December 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

You would think that a production item like a paint agitator would be fairly similar across brands and manufacturers. The main purpose is the mixing paint, or various liquids. What separates ITM (Integrated Tote Mixer) from the rest are it’s ability to mix in both a steel and plastic tote. Refined in the automotive paint industry to mix colors it has now taken on other industries that need a tighter control over consistency  from batch to batch. Because of the innovative design of ITm you can mix and match drive systems and augers to help you tailor the system for your exact specifications. With their interchangeable agitators you can easily begin on different projects with the same drive segment without cross contamination.

Grab a deal online at Deal Fun

We have all heard and probably used the auction site eBay. Today there is a new wave of auction sites that are making a big entrance called penny auction sites. The newest penny auction site called dealfun.com is making waves across several news sites and have some features to help newbies understand how to best use the site. You join for free and maybe get a few free bids and then the game starts. What is alluring from a simple onlookers stand point is that you have an $800 item selling for $4.53. You can bid on and win items like iPads, laptops, and PS3’s. That sounds amazing and why can’t I win that. Here is how this auction works. Unlike sites like eBay where you bid on an item and you don’t win you are out nothing. At DealFun, once you bid the money is now put towards the item. So you can bid 4-5 units that may cost you .50 each but if someone outbids you that money is gone. The psychological aspect is quite interesting because the dollar is so low that you feel risking a few dollars to win a $800 item cannot be that bad. They are fun to watch and if you step into the game make sure that you set yourself a limit or you could end paying a lot for nothing. DealFun has put a solution in place for your first series of bidding that allow you to regain your bids within 24 hours of your first bidding experience. Plus they offer access to customer support and offer help to everyone  on your question.  I do like that they show what items sold for, who won them, and how many bids they used to win the item. They have just come online with a great domain name and will be compiling stories from across the industry on various auction types available. You can find articles on the site at MSNBC or on Yahoo to understand what other are saying.

Buy your own car parts

It’s too bad our auto insurance doesn’t help pay for new car parts. This could save us a lot of money and people might be willing to pay higher insurance premiums; than trying to search for a cheap car insurance plan. At least I would be more focused on a plan the covered a higher percentage of the costs for new parts; since my car is now getting to that age, where I will need to be buying more and more parts for it. Luckily at Buyautoparts.com you can find OEM Car Parts that cost less and then you can have your mechanic install them.

We are getting close to a day where it will be too expensive to drive a car for most people. Some people are already living those days now. Paying for a car is just the start of the money we will spend for the ability to drive. When you figure the car insurance costs, the higher gas prices at the pumps, and now the higher auto parts we have to pay; it makes driving very expensive. So if you are faced with having to repair your car look search the OEM Auto Parts buyautoparts.com and you may save a few bucks. I think something will have to give soon or a lot of folks that are driving now, won’t be on our roads in the next couple of years.

Calibrate your HDTV with Pixel Protector

I just came across a product that claims to help improve the picture of your HDTV no matter if you have a Plasma, LED, or LCD TV. The product is called PixelProtector and they are The worlds No.1 Pixel Fix solution…since 2006. I have been looking for a product like this to help calibrate our Panasonic plasma TV to help refresh the picture. If you do some searches on how to calibrate your HDTV or prevent screen burn you will see a lot of different solutions. Many of which are pretty technical and cost over $100 or more. With the price of HDTV’s coming down under $500 it is almost better just to purchase a new TV. I have noticed that there are some various ghost images that are starting to stay longer on the screen and the colors just do not seem as sharp. I have read about and researched other products that cost from $50 to $400 that talk about providing ways to calibrate and enhance your HDTV image.
So after some review and doing a little research on my own I decided to purchase the Pixel Protector screen calibration DVD to help me calibrate our two TV’s. I will be looking to write a second review after we receive the product and post our results. I would love to hear feedback on what others have tried to help keep their picture sharp. I am not that technical when it comes to the TV, and the simple setup and calibration instructions look like they will be just perfect for my knowledge level and make the process rather pain free. I ordered the Eco friendly DVD for just under $25 and they also offer a Blu Ray version for just $5 more.

The latest color printers on the market have come along with print speed and cost of operation. Color printers like the Dell 5110cn have the ability to print at 35 ppm in color which is amazing when you think that the fastest color copiers and printers only a few years ago were printing at speeds of around 15-20 ppm. With the four color printing system the speed and quality is comparable to sending out jobs to be printed. To help decrease your operational cost you can now get dell 5110cn toner at discounted rates and bring your overall cost per copy below seven cents per page. So if you are looking for a high end color printer that is cost effective in total ownership then you may want to consider the Dell 5110cn and look for discounted toner online.
