The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-07-31T01:23:08Z All Weather Shelters Ask the Question, “Insulated Vs Single Skin Patio Roofs – Why do They Matter”? 2021-07-31T01:23:08Z all-weather-shelters-ask-the-question-insulated-vs-single-skin-patio-roofs-why-do-they-matter As All Weather Shelters tell it, the most significant advantage that insulated patio roofing has over single skin roofing is temperature control. The insulating material between the two skins reduces heat flow, providing you with more comfortable temperatures in cold and warm weather.    Patios are the marriage of the indoors and outdoors. They give you a pleasant view and feel of the outdoors while keeping you in a safe, comfortable environment. What gives a patio its versatility as an indoor and outdoor space is its roof.    For most patio building projects, there are two kinds of patio covers: the single skin roofing and the insulated roofing. Both single skin and insulated roofing are utilised in patio-building applications, depending on your preferences and requirements. As its name suggests, single skin patio roofing consists of only one layer of steel, painted over with a high gloss finish. It is specifically built to reflect sunlight and is extremely lightweight.    The most significant advantage that insulated patio roofing has over single skin roofing is temperature control. The insulating material between the two skins reduces heat flow, providing you with more comfortable temperatures in cold and warm weather. With an insulated roofing system, you can minimise both heating and cooling costs in enclosed outdoor living areas.    Single skin and insulated roofing give homeowners countless benefits and outstanding results. Both roofing types give protection from sunlight and the elements, enhancing overall comfort in your patio. However, insulated roofing stands out because of its sleek look, versatility and temperature control qualities. Due to the layer of insulated material between the roof skins, it can keep your outdoor living space warm during winter and cool during summer.    The team of experienced administrators and installers at All Weather Shelters pride themselves in advising, designing and building structures to add to family life style, so with this in mind, please take a moment to find out more about carports Melbourne and opening roofs Melbourne by going to the website at http://www.allweathershilters.com.au .  Acorn Experts seek to prevent companies paying up to 59% more than they need to for an LMS 2021-07-30T05:02:54Z acorn-experts-seek-to-prevent-companies-paying-up-to-59-more-than-they-need-to-for-an-lms When it comes to picking a learning management system, pricing is the deciding factor for many organisations. So why do many end up paying 59% more than they need to? Seeking to better inform the market and reduce this figure, the Acorn internal subject matter experts have crafted a detailed guide which explores pricing models, hidden costs and how organisations can find their best solutions. Acorn is a product of Pursuit Technology, and the full article can be found on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/3orve47     When it comes to pricing models for an LMS, there are two options: cloud hosted and locally hosted. For cloud hosted platforms, pricing commonly revolves around pay-per-learner, pay-per-active-user and pay-as-you-go models. For locally hosted platforms you’ll find subscription, single payment and freemium models.    Beyond pricing models, there are always hidden costs organisations will want to look out for. Sometimes these aren’t found until the final proposal. They include things like maintenance, training, support, content creation and implementation.    Conducting due-diligence is important when it comes to finding value and the article is quick to note this. Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director) says even “just viewing a vendor’s pricing plans doesn’t give you the whole picture of cost.”    “Number of users is usually what upfront pricing plans are based on. It will pay to push back on things that will affect your day-to-day use of the LMS, like the cost of system maintenance, content creation, data migration, and not just support, but training too.”    The article guides organisations on what they need to define and how this will help them find the best-fitting solution.     In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy LMS Pricing Comparison Guide for potential users to weigh up their options and expose hidden costs.    Pursuit Technology is a software development company which seeks to streamline systems through innovative solutions and unlock the potential of the workforce. Pursuit is all about putting the customer at the centre of everything we create. Since the inception of our Acorn LMS seven years ago, we’ve worked with everyone from local businesses to federal government agencies. In that time, we’ve maintained a 100% retention rate. Our Acorn LMS contains all the tools needed to support workforces – from onboarding and inductions through to compliance and ongoing development.  Acorn Experts seek to develop market knowledge on eLearning platforms 2021-07-30T05:00:53Z acorn-experts-seek-to-develop-market-knowledge-on-elearning-platforms eLearning platforms have diversified exponentially since the late 90s, meaning the market has become flooded with a multitude of niche products. The Acorn internal subject matter experts recognise this makes it confusing to find the best solution. In response, they’ve moved to release an informative guide to help organisations understand and evaluate different platforms. The full article is available now on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/3tzG8W8     In Co-Founder & Managing Director Blake Proberts’ words: “What’s in a name? A great deal, when you consider that ‘learning’ and ‘course’ represent an entirely different use case when put in front of the term ‘management system’.   “Not to mention the price difference between eLearning products can be vast too once you factor in the cost of research, implementation, support, maintenance and buy-in.”    Acorn’s article is all about breaking things down. It details commoditised content vs business training. It explores the difference between online learning platforms and online course platforms. It wraps up by detailing the difference between a learning management system, learning content management system, authoring tool and eLearning portal. These four items have their own specific functions but can interact with one another.     This content on the surface looks quite daunting and technical, but Acorn’s article aims to explain everything in a simple and direct manner. Beyond giving those who may not be clued in on eLearning platforms some grounded knowledge, the article also features guidance on procuring a solution which best fits the organisation.      In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy LMS Feasibility Study for potential users to help ensure what seems like the perfect LMS, actually is.      Pursuit Technology is a software development company which seeks to streamline systems through innovative solutions to unlock the potential of the workforce.

Following on from a successful 2020 program which saw SCCU support six community projects, they are once again putting their money where their mouth is, backing community organisations big and small.  Acknowledging the challenges of today’s world, the launch of the 2021 program has been brought forward to respond to community need and unrest due to Covid restrictions. SCCU CEO Stuart Edwards shared “As we adapt to this new normal, and while things continue to shift, we want to keep supporting our community more than ever before and strengthen our resolve and ethos as a true community based financial institution. Our commitment truly reflects who we are as a business, where we’re going and why we’re different for all the right reasons.” Along with an accelerated timeline, the SCCU team have developed additional support for those applying, with a ‘how to’ guide available on the website for extra assistance. “We know not all groups applying will have the experience or dedicated resource at hand to help enter programs like our SCCU Community Grants” added Cassie Nicole, Community & Sponsorship Specialist. “The ‘how to’ guide is a simple step we can take to help everyone understand what we’re looking for and better articulate their project, their goals and their plan for building a better tomorrow. Past recipients have made a huge impact on the Northern Rivers using their SCCU Grants for a range of initiatives including the build of a plastic recycling centre, providing scholarships for young leaders and establishing an ongoing wildlife fundraiser to name a few.

Built on the existing business strategy, SAP follows the same principals as the SCCU mission to ‘make things easier’ and focuses on sharing the journey in the hopes that their path can help pave others. “Everything can feel overwhelming, particularly with a topic like sustainability. We want to bring people along the journey, involve them, make any learnings we discover accessible and celebrate the small wins” says Toni Anstiss who is leading the sustainability focus within SCCU.   Developed in partnership with Sustainability Advantage, the plan has four themes:   Engaging All People Through engagement, shared-learning, collaboration and open communication we strive to partner for environmental and social good, influencing change and embedding a culture of sustainability that extends beyond our team. Managing Our Impact Adapting our operations to reduce carbon emissions and constantly looking at ways to improve of process and procedures to ensure we are acting responsibly and playing our part to manage our impact on the environment. Developing Sustainable Finance By providing individuals, families, businesses and groups’ with financial products and services that reward sustainable choices and we aim to improve financial wellbeing. Acting With Integrity Acting as a responsible business goes beyond our role in finance. We seek to better understand, work with and engage our suppliers, partners and customers to ensure ethical practices are upheld.   Already having made significant advances in-house including a recycling program that has reduced waste by a massive 88%, CEO Stuart Edwards says “The sustainability plan formalises what has always been a part of our identity. Caring for our community at SCCU goes beyond just people, it’s where they live, where they grew up and where their kids play. We don’t support coal mining and have always looked to partner with those who can have a real impact, whether that be practical or educational. We know there’s a long way to go and want to be part of the change to help influence those around us to make conscious choices, that benefit us all and future generations”.   Following the year that was, SCCU surveyed customers to better understand where priorities had shifted, and where sustainability fits in “It’s a great sense of achievement to know that we are heading in the right direction and that our customers want to come on this journey with us. Being influencers in environmental stewardship means we are action takers, we are proactive in our sustainable practices, efforts and what we focus on. As the saying goes, “Actions speaker louder than words”. says Toni Anstiss   As a first step SCCU has launched a Sustainability landing page which includes a downloadable overview of SAP, what’s been achieved so far and an open invitation for those looking to follow along, to sign up. https://www.sccu.com.au/sustainability investn.com.au - Start your property portfolio with just $15,000 2021-07-29T17:44:34Z start-your-property-portfolio-with-just-15-000 15/07/2021 Start your property portfolio with just $15,000 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  The Investn Group offers a brand new solution to begin investing in residential real estate with just $15,000 in savings. Those looking for an opportunity to get their foot in the door of the property market but don’t have a deposit - this is their chance.  Buyers now have the opportunity to start a property portfolio with just $15,000. This is a brand new, game-changing strategy for first-time buyers to break into the Australian property market. Scott Fraser, Chief Executive Officer, founded The Investn Group knowing how challenging it is for first-time buyers to break into the Australian Property Market.  “With Sydney median house prices being so high, it’s a very daunting thought for non property owners to consider how many years it will take to save for a deposit” The Investn Group is the first company in Australia to start co-investing with individuals, where the company supplies the 10% deposit. Buyers are not required to have a large cash deposit, but need to cover costs such as stamp duty, conveyancing, mortgage fees etc. The Investn Group researches the best property opportunities via a national property network. They complete due diligence to choose an investment-grade property with good cash flow, in quality growth corridors. Upon settlement, an external licensed property manager is appointed to manage the property. The Investn Group works with individuals that have a gross income of at least $65,000 pa or $110,000 pa as a couple; be under full-time employment; have at least three months in their current employment; have a good credit history and $15,000 in savings.  The company is limited to an intake of 20 new clients each month. The individual's $15,000 is used to cover the initial purchase costs and a buffer for any unexpected costs such as maintenance and repairs to the property if investors fall into financial hardship.  The company’s private investment group, based in Sydney Australia, takes an ownership position with new owners for long term capital growth and rental income.  The Investn Group is the first to innovatively change the game on how to break into the property market for those without a deposit.

Catch.com.au to Digitally Transform Supply Chain with Blue Yonder 2021-07-29T01:15:54Z catch-com-au-to-digitally-transform-supply-chain-with-blue-yonder Victoria, Australia –29 July, 2021 – Catch.com.au, one of Australia’s leading online retailers, has selected Blue Yonder’s cloud-based warehouse management system (WMS) and labour management solution to support its high-volume e-commerce business. Open Sky Group, one of Blue Yonder’s WMS implementation partners, will help design, configure, and deploy both solutions.   Catch.com.au has been serving Australia since 2006 through a single fulfilment centre based in Victoria, and now due to surging Australian e-commerce demand, a new fulfilment centre is scheduled to open in Sydney in Q1 2022. The new fulfilment centre is part of its long-term customer first strategy and will enable Catch to serve customers more quickly and efficiently, helping customers get the products they need when they need them, right across Australia.   Due to this booming e-commerce demand, the company’s existing WMS is no longer able to meet its shifting business requirements. Catch.com.au was looking for a long-term strategic supply chain provider to bring together all parts of its warehouse operations to meet the dynamic, high-growth e-commerce market.   By implementing Blue Yonder, Catch.com.au will be able to: ●        Improve customer service through increased efficiency and agility in its warehouse operations. ●        Deliver stability and scalability via the solutions to support future growth. ●        Reduce cost to serve, enabling lower prices and faster delivery for customers. ●        Increase employee performance and engagement.   “When we made plans to open a second fulfilment centre to better serve our customers, we knew that we needed to upgrade our WMS and labour management solutions. With Blue Yonder, we can continue our customer-first strategy of delivering what our customers need faster and at the lowest price,” said Richard Whetton, head of Fulfilment, Catch.com.au.   Blue Yonder’s Luminate™ Platform, backed by Microsoft Azure, powers the WMS that will drive change for Catch.com.au with real-time transaction processing, optimized storage and selection strategies, and integrated labour management. Now, Catch.com.au will be able to create a standard methodology for associates to do their jobs more effectively and for the operations to decrease costs, improve throughput, and increase productivity.   “Today’s retail e-commerce market is challenging for many reasons and Catch.com.au recognised that they need all parts of their business working together to serve their shoppers. We are looking forward to developing a long-term relationship with Catch.com.au to help improve their warehouse operations and better manage their warehouse labour, so that their customers can continue to experience an easy and convenient e-commerce shopping experience,” said Rod Hall, account manager, Blue Yonder.   “With such a strong WMS implementation record, we are uniquely suited to help Catch.com.au deploy their Blue Yonder solutions in a way that helps them meet their customer-first strategy and do so in a more condensed timeline than a traditional implementation,” said Ian Drummond, CEO of Open Sky Group Pty Ltd. “With our deep team culture, we have already demonstrated our ability to work very collaboratively as one with Catch.com.au, Blue Yonder and contractors.”   Additional Resources: ●        Learn more about Blue Yonder’s warehouse management (WMS) and labor management solutions ●        Learn more about Luminate Platform -ENDS- About Blue Yonder Blue Yonder is the world leader in digital supply chain and omni-channel commerce fulfillment.

Best-in-class mileage logbook app releases free automatic tracking 2021-07-28T12:16:31Z best-in-class-mileage-logbook-app-releases-free-automatic-tracking Driversnote, a digital mileage logbook app with over 900,000 users based in Copenhagen, Denmark, is releasing fully automatic mileage tracking for all users on Android and iOS. The app also comes with additional features that support automatic tracking and make it easier than ever to keep a precise and timely logbook. Driversnote co-founder and CEO, Martin Poulsen, said, “We have seen time and again that users forget to track trips throughout the day and end up missing on their mileage reimbursement or tax deductions. It was important for us to create a solution that makes it easy to track every mile and maximise payouts for work-related driving not just for our customers, but also for new users. Thanks to the hard work of the Driversnote team, we can now offer fully automatic tracking to everybody!” As an alternative to the iBeacon, the newly introduced motion-based tracking will record trips as soon as users move above a certain speed - no need to open the mobile app. With this feature, the app will track driving, bus rides, bike rides and trips when the user is a passenger in another’s vehicle. Therefore, it was important that Driversnote creates a process of reviewing tracked trips for an accurate logbook. A simple overview of newly tracked trips After much user research to define the needs of those who use motion-based tracking, Driversnote created a simple and intuitive overview of trips to be reviewed where users have the chance to revise and approve trips and remove unnecessary logs for their reimbursement or deductions. This “To review” section is conveniently positioned next to the general Trips list and provides an easy way of keeping users’ logbook accurate and up-to-date. A well-loved feature - improved The Driversnote mileage tracker keeps all of its core features, including logging manual trips. Every manually entered trip now has a Plus button attached for faster creation of return trips. By tapping the newly introduced “+” button, a new trip is created, with the start point being the previous trips’ end address. Users are then able to input the end address of the return trip and all other details for a complete log that includes time, purpose and additional notes. Easy management of old vehicles and workplaces Throughout time, users may change jobs or get a new car. Driversnote now makes it easy to avoid tracking trips on old vehicles or workplaces by archiving them. All data remains safe and users can still create reports for old vehicles and workplaces. They can also be restored at any time, should users need to record mileage on them again. Driversnote keeps on successfully improving its top-rated mileage tracking app to make the mileage reimbursement process simpler and faster for all - saving time and money for businesses and employees alike. About Driversnote: Serving over 900,000 Android & iOS users around the world, Driversnote makes working life simpler for customers while saving them time and money with their mileage logbook app. For more, see https://www.driversnote.com.au or download the app on iOS and Android today.
