The report reviewed changes to the way the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) levies fees and was commissioned by the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of dental products. “At a time when the Australian Government’s focus is on supporting manufacturers in the healthcare sector this report is sadly ironic. Small businesses looking to manufacture and export dental products face enough challenges without this increase in compliance costs,” said Troy Williams, ADIA Chief Executive Officer. The increase in regulatory compliance costs stem from the way the TGA levies fees to place products on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), the list of therapeutic products that can be lawfully supplied in Australia. The TGA charges businesses an annual fee to maintain products on the ARTG. Until 1 July 2015, a Low Value Turnover (LVT) scheme was in place, whereby products with turnover less than or equal to fifteen times the relevant annual charge for that product were exempt from the charge. From 1 July 2015, this exemption scheme was replaced by the Annual Charge Exemption (ACE) scheme. Under this scheme only products with no turnover are exempt from annual charges. “From the outset ADIA had concerns that this change would fail to reduce compliance costs for businesses in the dental industry and the report from Deloitte Access Economics has confirmed this is indeed the case. The new scheme resulted in an average net increase of $12,128 for each business across the sample group analysed in the report, that’s an increase of 34% in TGA compliance costs,” Mr Williams said. ADIA has sent the report to both the Minister for Health and the TGA in order to secure further change that supports small businesses in the dental industry. “The TGA’s regulatory reform was intended to deliver reduced compliance costs for businesses in the dental industry. The Deloitte Access Economics report clearly demonstrates that this is not the case thus urgent further work is required,” Mr Williams concluded. The Deloitte Access Economics report is available online at:www.adia.org.au/advocacy/tga-reviews/ace-analysis 4th Annual Middle East Smart Landscape Summit Focused on Managing Dubai’s Landscape with Sustainable Solutions 2016-04-28T10:15:11Z 4th-annual-middle-east-smart-landscape-summit-focused-on-managing-dubai-s-landscape-with-sustainable-solutions Dubai, United Arab Emirates, April 28, 2016: Within the context of two days, the 4th Annual Middle East Smart Landscape Summit, held under the patronage of Dubai Municipality, explored issues, and raised critical questions pertaining to sustainable urban landscape development in the presence of over 400 senior professionals from across the GCC that took place on 25th and 26th April 2016 at Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa.

He asserted that the mobile app company is steadily edging ahead of rivals, and presented facts and figures to support his claim. The event was held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the start of the first Teks Mobile office. Mr. Fakhruddin highlighted some of the initial challenges and hiccups that he and his team of app developers had to face in the initial years. He earmarked the 2009-10 financial year as a major turning point in the roadmap of the company - when Teks landed several important projects. Since then, there has been no looking back. To substantiate the fact that Teknowledge Mobile Studio is indeed pulling ahead of its competitors, Mr. Fakhruddin cited quite a number of big app projects that the company is currently working on. In fact, the inflow of new projects has spiked in a big way in 2016 Q1 - with requests for free quotes coming in for both iOS and Android applications. The CEO expressed confidence that his company will be able to sustain the momentum, and consolidate its position as a market leader in the upcoming months. Teks Mobile has been marked out as one of the best mobile app companies in Asia by many of its clients, but Mr. Fakhruddin refuses to rest on past laurels. At the media event, he said that each and every in-house developer at Teknowledge is aware of the high degree of competition in the global mobile app market - where a single mistake can lead to serious loss of business for a company. That’s precisely why much importance is given to mobile app testing and client query handling at Teks. Moving to the top slot is easier than actually managing to stay there, as Mr. Fakhruddin correctly pointed out. The sheer volume of projects that Teks Mobile has in its portfolio also puts it a couple of notches above most other mobile app development companies. The total number of apps (iOS and Android) created by Mr. Fakhruddin’s company breached the 1000 mark in February this year - and the number is expected to see at least a 20% hike by fall. Couple that with the fact that, the company has many developers and software testers with several years of coding expertise and business development - and it becomes evident that Teks indeed has all the necessary elements for sustained business success. On average, 8 out of every 10 Teks apps get featured at the online stores - a nod to Mr. Fakhruddin’s team’s expertise. Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin took the opportunity to point out the role that the overseas chapters of Teknowledge - Teks Mobile Australia (at Sydney) and Teks Sverige (at Stockholm) - have played in strengthening the international presence of the Teks brand. He highlighted that, having talented young mobile app entrepreneurs like Amber Blumanis and Maria Bergstrom onboard as the heads of the Teks branches at Australia and Sweden has been a privilege. The opening of a new branch at Pune during the turn of year has also pushed matters along. With a smile on his face, Mr. Fakhruddin said that managing the remote teams has shaved off a couple of hours of sleep from his daily routine - but the additional responsibility has been totally worth it. A well-placed source from the iPhone app company said that, plans are in place for the start of a couple more branches of Teknowledge in Europe. Although bullish about the current status and the future prospects of his agency, Mr. Fakhruddin praised the work done by other mobile app companies at the event too. For a dedicated mobile app artist (as he likes to refer to himself at times), it is a fun thing to study the newly launched apps, assess their performances, and examine the ideas behind them. According to him, there is always something to learn from the work of others too. Speaking of learning, Mr. Fakhruddin had a thing or two to say about the importance of innovation in the race for the top spot in the worldwide mobile app market. Teks Mobile, he stated, is a company that is constantly evolving - and new app ideas and concepts have been instrumental for that. The regular app development training sessions have helped coders get familiar with the best practices of making custom mobile apps - practices that are changing every quarter. Moving ahead with time and understanding the pulse of clients have been key for the success of his mobile app company, Mr. Fakhruddin noted. The rise of Teknowledge Software over the years, under the keen eyes of Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin, has indeed been remarkable. The man loves to read, to travel, to blog about varied stuff, and has a quick wit - and he is also the CEO of what can safely be said as one of the leading mobile app companies in the world.

INSIGHTS LAUNCHES WOMEN-FOCUSED FAMILY BUSINESS INITIATIVE 2016-04-27T23:24:30Z insights-launches-women-focused-family-business-initiative BRISBANE, Queensland - (28th April 2016) - Insights is launching a three-part online learning module for aspiring female leaders in Australia’s family businesses. Taking aim directly at problematic stereotypes and cultural pressures, Insights is challenging up-and-coming women to balance family, work, and personal development. Women will learn “how to identify and leverage the stressors in life,” according to Managing Director Kim Harland. “You’ll learn how to marry together your skills, passions and values and, along the way, determine which roles in your life are the most important and satisfying.” Much of each module’s instruction and advice comes directly from pioneers in female leadership, leveraged by the Insights team’s decades of experience in family business issues. Several studies suggest women are more active in businesses than ever before. The also suggest women tend, on average, to be more effective than their male counterparts. Key findings include: Five times as many businesses are led by women than during the late 1990s, according Marketplace and American Public Media research. The International Journal of Business Governance found that female managers improve company performance and reduce risk of bankruptcy. Yet many women are reluctant when presented with leadership roles. Women report feeling pressure to be “superwoman” and to be everything to everyone in their lives. The Insights courses help women prioritize their obligations and decide what they can and cannot change. The Women in Enterprising Families Initiative aims to empower and encourage women to seize opportunities without losing sight of family and self. The three short modules  -- A Gaze Ahead, A Woman’s World, and A Balancing Act -- provide women tools to understand and effect change according to their values.   More information can be obtained by contacting Kim Harland, Managing Director of Insights, on 0402 247 946.

Just Water Supporting 'Water Only' Schools 2016-04-21T05:20:56Z just-water-supporting-water-only-schools Auckland is very fortunate to have Tony Falkenstein becoming involved in the ‘water only’ schools project. Tony is an Auckland based entrepreneur, philanthropist and Chief Executive at Just Water International Limited and Just Water pioneered the delivery of chilled drinking water to businesses throughout New Zealand and Australia, and remain New Zealand's leading supplier of drinking water to the corporate sector. Just Water has been supporting schools that have become ‘water only’ schools and run a healthy living programme. Yendarra School has run a programme for over five years and, together with the community, have taught parents how to provide healthy lunches that cost far less than unhealthy ones.  The kids are advocates of water, and have a hatred for Coke and other sugar loaded soda waters, and this is where Tony and Just Water come in with their water coolers. Being a ‘water only’ school, combined with healthy food and daily exercise is reflected in the happy tone that permeates the Yendarra School classrooms and playground, with the water only policy being adopted after suggestions from the staff. The water was having other benefits as well. Visitors had commented on how calm the environment was and one student had said her classmates "did not get so high". On other matters ‘water’, this summer has been one of the hottest on record and also one of the busiest for water companies, with the hot humid weather contributing to a 40% increase in sales of water to businesses and homes. As Tony says, even the CEO had to deliver water the week before Christmas. Just Water’s range of water coolers suit any office environment or workplace with flexible rental or purchase options to meet their customers’ needs. People can choose from Plumbed–in Water Coolers, Bottled Water Delivery or Easy Fill Options.

The award recognises the best implementation of GS1 standards to support improvements of at least one process in their hospital group. The ceremony was held at the recent Global GS1 Healthcare Conference held in Dubai from the 18 to 20 April 2016 where the GS1 Healthcare community gathered to hear about the implementation of GS1 standards in hospitals and the benefits global standards bring to providers and patients. Andrew Potter, Group Inventory Manager at Ramsay Health Care said, “We are incredibly pleased and humbled to win this award. It’s a reflection of the continuing work by Ramsay Health Care to look for ways to improve how we deliver care – but is also a result of the continuing work by GS1 in supporting the NEHTA Australian Healthcare Supply Chain reform program to improve the health supply chain in Australia. The adoption of GS1 standards by all healthcare providers and their suppliers in Australia is creating efficiency, quality and safety benefits for all parties.” Ramsay Health Care has undertaken a number of projects over the past several years, utilising GS1 standards to support fundamental process improvements and efficiencies across their 70 hospitals and day surgery units around Australia. Use of GS1 standards has already enabled significant benefits within the areas of master data, inventory management, purchase-to-pay and patient record accuracy as they continue to identify new areas for benefits. “Ramsay Health Care is an active participant in the Australian Healthcare Supply Chain reform agenda led by the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA).  This award is recognition of what can be delivered when working collaboratively through use of standards, and demonstrates the significant benefits that can be achieved. We are pleased to see one of our health providers continuing to lead the way within the global community,” added Paul Broadbridge, Manager eHealth Value Chain at National E-Health Transition Authority. GS1 standards support increased patient safety and provide foundations for ongoing operational efficiency improvements within healthcare. Catherine Koetz, Industry Manager Healthcare at GS1 Australia said, “We are very pleased to see Ramsay Health Care receive this recognition from their global peers. Change within health providers must be finely balanced to ensure quality of care is maintained, and this certainly has been achieved by Ramsay through the implementation of GS1 standards. This award is a great achievement and we look forward to continuing to support Ramsay and the whole industry in the strategic value chain program.” For more information on GS1 standards in Healthcare visit https://www.gs1au.org/for-your-industry/healthcare/ For further information about the national healthcare supply chain program lead by NEHTA visit https://www.nehta.gov.au/get-started-with-ehealth/what-is-ehealth/supply-chain About GS1 Australia GS1 Australia is the leading provider of standards and solutions for over 20 industry sectors.

For a long time Australia has been the land of opportunity, climate and lifestyle sought after by many New Zealanders and for many years there has been a continuous flow of New Zealanders heading to the popular destinations of Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. However, with the downturn in the Australian economy and the very real better prospects now being offered in New Zealand, Conroy Removals are perfectly positioned to cater to these changing times. As the Conroy Removals team are now noticing, the reverse is happening to a few years’ ago, with Kiwis returning home in droves. The old adage, ‘the grass is greener on the other side of the ditch’ no longer applies as the grass seems to be drying up in Australia, and economic commentators confirm that it is now greener in New Zealand. It is said that these things happen in cycles but it is a long time since we have seen such a shift in trends. Kiwis are leaving Australia in large numbers, and whether they’ve been living there for one year or ten years, the attraction of returning home to a flourishing New Zealand has never been stronger.  And not only are Kiwis coming home but they’re also not leaving for Australia either. New Zealand now seems to have more appeal and offer more opportunity than Australia. With branches throughout New Zealand and Australia the Conroy Removals team know the Trans-Tasman like the back of their hands and are a truly Australasian moving company. They don’t mind which direction Kiwis (or Aussies) are heading , west or east, the professional and experienced team at Conroy Removals will gladly extend the Conroy experience to all and sundry to help people on their journey, be it to a new destination or home to familiar faces. Not to ‘rub it in’ too hard, the Sydney Morning Herald recently published on the front page of their newspaper “12 reasons why we should move to New Zealand” – time to get moving with Conroy Removals!
