A highest possible accuracy of the data is to be achieved. The collected data are anonymized in the APQC database entered and can be compared according to the task and target with companies from 102 countries. The results report the most effective management tool includes a comprehensive strengths and weaknesses representation, as well as the potential for improvement.
More safety thanks to the iDobber: The ‘electronic sneak’ for your treasures telematics systems have long been our private and professional life. Whether GPS or cell phone, there is hardly anyone who may come out even without these useful devices. In recent years, increasingly positioning systems in our field of vision back, especially to speak to our security and backup needs. Positioning systems gaining in significance as dumb security businesses and health care.

Technology may not as an end in itself in the foreground are Berlin – unified communications (UC) plays still a role for many companies. That may be changing however. In a survey by frost & Sullivan in collaboration with the ICT specialist Aastra among system integrators, service providers, consultants, distributors and resellers, only five percent of the participants indicated that the majority of their customers already using UC solutions. 65 per cent of respondents expect increasing demand for complete UC packages or individual services but still in this year. One reason for the previous restraint is the recession according to the study. Investments would now re-scheduled its end. Looking at the individual services that are summarized under the term of unified communications, so respondents attach to different marketing opportunities them. One of the top issues in the coming months is followed the convergence of fixed and mobile telephony, Unified Messaging (42 percent) for 62 percent.
80 percent expect the largest business Respondents in the migration to the Internet Protocol. According to the survey, cost savings and efficiency are top on the list of motivations (both 85%). This is followed by mobility and telecommuting (81 percent). To spend money on UC technologies, be economically is from the perspective of the applying companies. This in particular applies to individual modules such as convergence or video. The technology for its own sake is not in the foreground. Instead work processes should be easier and faster”, so Johannes Nowak, business development manager for applications at Aastra Germany. Should not technically be seen the term UC, but rather as a keyword with the customers attention making, that now clearly more is possible than simple phone calls and a call forwarding.

In second place the IT – and telecommunications industries comes the, followed by service providers from Real estate, consulting, and accounting. Then one day retail, education and construction play a comparatively minor importance. Europe-wide, 169 companies took part in the survey, 41 percent of them come from Germany.
BBP 72 – a 4-inch thermal transfer printers for double-sided printing of heat-shrinkable tubing which is BBP 72 by Brady a 4 inch thermal transfer printers for double-sided printing of heat-shrinkable tubing. Add to your understanding with NYC Mayor. As both sides of the heat-shrink tubing will be printed at the same time, a high printing speed can be achieved. This printer is the ideal solution of labelling in the areas of aerospace, defense, as well as local and long-distance services. Heat shrinkable tubing could be printed not so readily on both sides in a per printing. The heat-shrink sleeve is then not turned around and once again printed on the back in a second pass, one side of the cable is later cleared. Double printing, however, is a time-consuming, tedious and therefore costly process. Increasingly, it is assumed that both sides of heat shrink tubing and consequently cables are marked.
The thermal transfer printer BBP72 has been developed exactly for this purpose with a width 101,60 mm (4 inch) and provides optimum material processing and low error rate. The BBP72 prints with a resolution of 300dpi with up to 125 mm / sec. The BBP72 can print each page of the shrink hose with different information in only one printing operation, thus the two sides can be exploited optimally for the printing of information. Brady’s BBP72 is an efficient alternative to standard table printers where the material twice must be inserted, to achieve the same result. Double insertion of heat-shrinkable tubing into a printer costs at least twice as much time. Also, align the shrink hose for the correct printing of information – both on the first and on the second page – right is very cumbersome and error-prone. These difficulties do not occur simultaneous printing on front and back of heat shrink tubing.

The goal of the sales controlling is to achieve an optimisation of sales at possible minimal cost for the distribution and increasing as the profit of the company. Thus, sales controlling is an interface between the sales with his often high costs and expenses and the total operational controlling. The task of sales controlling covers many areas.
To name a few are here in particular the assessment of the markets on which the company is active, the assessment of what do the competitors on this and in accordance with a recommendation for a possible change of strategy, if a competitor should prove competitive. The analysis of the customers and their needs are required to survive on the market; to uninstall Sales processes are checked constantly to avoid unnecessary costs for the company and to adapt quickly to any changes in the business environment.

Vorwerk Chief starts debate on relocation of production abroad Bonn/Wuppertal at first glance seems the statement implausible and cynical. Expensive oil can help Germany”, said Peter Oberegger, Chief of the Wuppertal of company Vorwerk. Some people will rub their puzzled eyes. Because higher gasoline prices mean that inflation leaves nothing of wage increases to people. “Oberegger but further thought and says: even the high labour costs in Germany no longer outweigh the costs for the logistics, when a product must be returned from Asia to Europe.” Thus, high energy prices could lead to a renaissance of the business location Germany. It is true that the increased fuel prices an important competitive advantage of Asian countries at least in the short term is eliminated.
However, I see the situation is less optimistic than Mr Oberegger. Finally, a couple of additional factors in the calculus must be considered. Rising Energy costs curb the consumer demand of citizens and lead to inflationary trends in connection with higher food prices. We are also dependent on that our products to other countries are shipped, driven or flown as a so-called export world champion of”, so Marc Emde of KCP executives in Cologne. The Vorwerk Chief expresses for the business location Germany, finds the consent of Edmonds, who, however, warns: indeed we have much better trained professionals than in Asia or Eastern Europe in some areas.
But here, too, I see dangers. In certain sectors, such as engineers, we already suffering a lack of suitable candidates”, so the staff expert. Therefore his company opened a representative office in Cracow sometime ago, directly in the Polish market to operate and Polish engineers with good English to German companies give… . The Vorwerk Chief of recent can feel confirmed Economic news. The Steiff company wants to be henceforth no longer produce his stuffed animals in China, because there quality problems have occurred. Who goes only for cost reasons abroad and not sufficiently prepared this step will come back eventually frustrated”, said Edmonds. Nevertheless, Germany will lose annually up to 74,000 jobs through relocation. You should not demonize also this, so the Chief of KCP. Our country is a big winner of the globalization. Insular national economies have no future. The return of Teddy bears to Germany is so far no indication that this example will make school now en masse.” By Alexander Walker
