Our data tells us that many smokers are transitioning to vaping at a time when money is tight,” says Jo Einarsson, Director of Caktus Vape - one of New Zealand’s largest online vape retailers. The rising costs of cigarettes in New Zealand has seen the vape industry take-off, Caktus Vape being an online-only retailer can offer customers a quick & easy buying process and prices online that are hard to beat in stores.  “Our business has always been geared to online first, during the lock-down we were able to reach a wider customer base seeking vape products online as traditional brick & mortar stores were not able to open,” he says. Mr Einarsson says one of the key parts to getting online e-commerce right is fast dispatch and just as fast delivery.  “We were able to maintain our same day dispatch and even with the expected delays, the majority of our customers saw a delivery in 1-3 Business Days. Covid-19 has demonstrated how important our courier network is. During the lockdown, our business and customers relied on the services New Zealand Post provides,” Funding of $130 million from Budget 2020 will allow New Zealand Post to maintain service levels as it positions itself for the future. E-commerce will be a huge factor in their success as online sales continue to grow post-lock-down.

As many of you will already be aware, we decided some time ago that changes needed to be made in order for our Company to continue to grow and be successful. What started as a an open table discussion on the direction of our business has lead us to this point where we have taken the rather large, and at times daunting & difficult, decision to completely restructure and rebrand our Company. Why the change? To make it easier on our new and existing customers by knowing one call can be made or one email can be sent and whatever issue/s they have will be addressed and resolved swiftly and in a professional manner. We believe we can continue to provide the same exceptional quality & service that RTL Plumbing has been providing to South East Queensland for the last 70 + years in other areas of the trade sector. While there are no immediate plans in the works, the restructure will allow us to add different trade disciplines including but not limited to: Electrical, HVAC, Roof & Wall Cladding, Carpentry & Handyman Services etc. in the future. Our aim is to be one of South East Queensland’s largest multi-faceted solutions provider for all things trade related, while still maintaining our core values of integrity, honesty & accountability as well as continuing to provide the same exceptional customer service that you have come to know and rely on so well. We thank you for your support in assisting us with this changeover and look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our relationship with you in to the future.

Created in response to the company’s research which showed that over 99% of multi-million-dollar tenders awarded in Australia could have been on the back of flawed analysis, TRAACI uses the insights its creators developed over 15 years in contract management and procurement consulting to large resources companies, multinationals and the higher education sector. The main problems they kept seeing? Mystery ‘blackbox’ Excel models and calculations, copy/paste errors in cells and inconsistently formatted response templates. Each issue wreaked havoc on the validity of TRAACI addresses each issue, dramatically reducing the time it takes to assess a pricing from weeks and months to minutes. Simon Thompson, Acquire Procurement Services’ Asia Pacific Director, said “We’ve built TRAACI to be scalable, secure, flexible and simple. Now, pricing evaluation can be structured, predictable, and — most importantly — fast for tenders of all sizes.” From as little as $449 per tender, TRAACI takes the logic and methods used in the most effective pricing analysis techniques, traditionally only available to big firms with in-house engineers and analysts, and makes them available at the click of a button. Guided by Acquire Procurement Services’ team of procurement specialists, TRAACI can be set up in minutes and is compatible with most Source-to-Contract or Tender Management systems, including Oracle Aconex and SAP Ariba. The product is one of three digital services released by Acquire Procurement Services in recent weeks, following on the heels of contract management tools ‘Contract Manager’ and ‘Contract Pulse’. More information TRAACI can be found at https://traaci.com Australian contract management company’s software keeps service contracts on track without spreadsheets 2020-05-15T02:06:36Z australian-contract-management-company-s-software-keeps-service-contracts-on-track-without-spreadsheets The two web-based products, Contract Manager and Contract Pulse, let operations managers see end of month and real-time supplier activity respectively, and highlight if contractors are providing services in line with contract requirements and budgets. The applications are an important development because most operations managers, while responsible for budgets, aren’t necessarily experts in contract management and spreadsheet analysis — an unfamiliarity that increases the risk of expensive billing mistakes and not seeing troubling trends until it’s too late. Simon Thompson, Acquire Procurement Services’ Asia Pacific Director, said “When you’re an operations manager overseeing services that are performed over a large geographical footprint or out-of-site (like underground at a remote mine) — you rarely get to see if the services you’re being billed for were actually performed, and to make sure the right rates have been applied. Our tools dramatically reduce the chance of costly errors in contract management and make it possible for the budget owner to check performance without even opening a spreadsheet.” Guided by Acquire Procurement Services’ team of specialised contract managers, the tools take key contract elements like service costs and timeframes (which normally live in Word documents, invoices, timesheets, and messy Excel spreadsheets) and turn them into a digital contract. After that, proprietary algorithms compare contractor behaviour against expected levels and highlights discrepancies and trends, either in real time (Contract Pulse) or monthly (Contract Manager). Using Contract Pulse, suppliers can record their activities directly into the system via a smartphone app. The company is so confident in the benefits that it’s offering a refund if the tools haven’t added value within six months. “If we can’t demonstrate within 6 months that we’ve saved you more than the cost of the service, we will refund the difference,” Mr Thompson said. The release comes on the back of Acquire Procurement Services’ research into contract awarding issues, which found over 99% of multi-million-dollar tenders awarded in Australia could have been on the back of flawed analysis. They subsequently built Traaci.com, a tool which helps tender evaluation teams quickly collect and assess pricing and volume submissions from tenderers.

Q CELLS expands options for Australians searching for quality, high efficiency solar panels 2020-05-15T02:06:35Z q-cells-expands-options-for-australians-searching-for-quality-high-efficiency-solar-panels ·       The latest Q CELLS module, Q.PEAK DUO-G6+, comes with a 25-year product and 25-year performance warranty and is available from 1 May 2020. ·       Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ at up to 355Wp is currently the most powerful Q CELLS Q.ANTUM DUO solar panel to hit the Australian market, targeting the premium residential segment. ·       Q.PEAK DUO-G5+, the product’s predecessor, first launched in 2019 with a 25-year product warranty is currently the best-selling module for the residential segment in Q CELLS Australia’s product range. ·       Q CELLS is expanding its premium range as the solar industry sees strong demand from consumers looking for energy security in uncertain times.  Q CELLS, a renowned total energy solutions provider in solar cell and module, energy storage, downstream project business and energy retail, the market leader for solar panels in the US, Germany, Japan and South Korea has expanded its premium offering to the market with the arrival of Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ from May 1, 2020. Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ is the most powerful Q.ANTUM DUO model to date for the Australian market from the award-winning manufacturer with a power class of up to 355 Wp. Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ will be the second model in Q CELLS premium, made-in-Korea range, to feature a 25 year product warranty. Since Q CELLS first announced a 25-year product warranty with the launch of the popular Q.PEAK DUO-G5+, Q CELLS remains the only member of the ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (which represents the world’s top nine largest solar manufacturers) to be offering warranties of this length to the Australian market. “Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ offers ultimate confidence,” said Q CELLS Australia Key Account Director, Myungsin Shim. “Sitting alongside the Q.PEAK DUO-G5+, in Q CELLS range with a 25 year product warranty is sure to be welcome news for Australians at this critical time.” With Energy Networks Australia[1] estimating the additional cost of working from home at $2.78 per day, an average household with two working parents and two school-aged children could expect an increase of up to $1,445 over the next six months should working and studying at home continue. Q CELLS is banking that the quality, performance, and long warranty offer of Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ will turn heads.  “That’s what sets apart Q CELLS premium range from the pack,” said Shim. “Consumers are increasingly aware and more educated about solar than ever before. They know good value when they see it, or have learned the hard way from previous purchases where a product did not live up to its promise. Now we see them turning more and more to quality, reliable brands like Q CELLS.” Solar installers across the nation are seeing a rise in consumer demand for solar panels as concerns over coronavirus spread. Many installers are reporting noticeable increases in enquiries they’re receiving since the outbreak and announcements of shutdowns in Australia. “Right now, consumers are attracted, more than ever, to quality products to bolster self-sufficiency and energy security in uncertain times,” said Shim. “Q.PEAK DUO-G6+’s high performance thanks to Q.ANTUM DUO Technology, means customers can install fewer panels on their roof to maximise generation and help save on those rising costs.” In addition to the launch of Q.PEAK DUO-G6+, Q CELLS Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 (Q.HOME) will now be ready for Australian installation from mid-May. Q.HOME paired with Q CELLS solar panels, provides a comprehensive fully wrapped solar solution that is covered by a single warranty. It is backed by Q CELLS industry-leading local specialists – a unique complete solar and support offering of its kind in Australia. "Consumers understand that with a quality product and reputable brand, they can have confidence in the service, support and performance for the extended life of the product. With global-shutdowns in place, the reasons to deal with companies with a strong local presence is more compelling than ever before," said Shim.  Q.PEAK DUO-G6+, along with all of Q CELLS’ products come with local support based in Sydney. Q CELLS has been servicing Australia since 2009, celebrating their 10th Anniversary last year. “This is unlike anything else in the market,” said Shim. “Once Q.HOME is paired with Q.PEAK DUO-G6+, this offers customers complete power from one of the most trusted solar brands in Australia.” Q CELLS has won the EuPD Research Top Brand PV Award for the fifth consecutive year in Australia in 2020. This comes off the back of gaining number one market share in US  residential and commercial solar market as well as winning the Life & Living Award 2020 for “Germany's Most Popular Supplier” – one of the most highly valued recognitions of consumer quality in the country. Both Q.PEAK DUO-G6+ and Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 are available for installation in Australia from May 1 2020 with Q.HOME available for installation from the middle of the month.

The new lead generation program connects Trades Businesses with customers via a single number: 0448 422 422 as a one-step SMS response to all repairs and maintenance jobs across Australia. Paul Naylor, CEO of Master Plumbers NSW believes that adopting digital transformation is an inevitable and the i4Tradies in partnership with Master Plumbers NSW, NECA (National Electrical and Communications Association) and Master Painters NSW has introduced its Emergency Response Centre so trades businesses can access a new way to generate leads at a time when customers are putting off non-emergency work, spending more cautiously and are wary of letting Tradespeople in their homes.  Paul Naylor, CEO of the Master Plumbers Association of NSW says that in this time of crisis customers want a simplified way to get their jobs done, while trades businesses are looking for new work to sustain themselves.  “There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the economic situation and many businesses are seeking to cut costs. I think i4Tradies - Emergency Response Centre is a great opportunity for our members to give their businesses a boost in terms of steady work coming through with the waiving of the platform’s monthly subscription and a generously discounted fee per lead for the entire COVID-19 recovery period.”  Oliver Judd, executive director of NECA ACT/NSW agrees that this initiative has the potential to create new work opportunities for Electrical Contracting Businesses.  “A great thing about this initiative is that it is a fantastic job management software integrated with a new lead generation channel or it can be used as a standalone lead generation platform. This means that you can register and reap the benefits of the i4T lead-generation program irrespective of the business management platform you are using.”  Therese Lauriola, CEO of Master Painters Australia, says it’s a crucial time for Trades Businesses to actively think about long-term measures for business sustainability.  “The crisis has hit the world hard and its effects have been felt at home as well. While the nation is in the lockdown, now is the time to work on processes that can help them provide a cushion to their businesses should such situations arise in the future. A great thing about i4Tradies Emergency Response Centre is that it’s not only helping Trade Businesses during the lockdown and the COVID-19 recovery period, but will continue to act as a lead-generation mechanism once the crisis is over.”  Logan Nathan, Founder and CEO of i4Tradies, believes that homeowners and businesses are now hiring Tradies more vigilantly than before, so it’s important for Trade Businesses to showcase their trade credentials and obtain COVID-19 training certificate to increase their chances of landing more work.  “At i4Tradies, we always put consumer safety and peace of mind at the forefront. For this reason, we want to make sure all customers are connected only to verified, licensed and trusted Trade Businesses, which is why license details are so important at the time of registering for the Emergency Response Centre. This was made possible through our partnership with Message Media providing us an SMS gateway and our secure cloud-based platform powered by Google Cloud Platform.” About MasterPlumbersNSW MasterPlumbersNSW is one of the strongest specialist contracting organisations in the building and construction industry and is a highly active and vocal body in trade-related matters.

Kalolwala & Associates to offer Virtual AGMs service in India 2020-05-11T11:12:59Z kalolwala-amp-associates-to-offer-virtual-agms-service-in-india As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to keep everyday life at a standstill in India and across the globe, the importance of technology to handle emergency situations is going up exponentially. In a recent development, the Indian Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) gave its nod for the use of audio-visual equipments and/or videoconferencing tools, for conducting the Annual General Meetings (AGMs) of companies virtually. Kalolwala & Associates Pvt Ltd (K&A) - a fast emerging corporate communication consultancy in India working with some of the leading corporates - has taken a bold step aligned with evolving regulatory landscape.  Following the directive from the MCA, Kalolwala & Associates has been working closely with several leading corporate houses in India, to understand the precise requirements for video conferencing through audio visual means for conducting a seamless Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Founder and CEO, Mr. Hussain Kalolwala, (a CA and CS by qualification) has partnered with a leading global technology firm to deliver a fully customised and cost-effective platform for the companies. Understanding the nuances of annual reports and delivering concept, content and design - the extension of virtual AGM as a service only completes the spectrum of services offered by K&A.  K&A is keeping a close eye on the stipulations and checklist mentioned by the MCA to ensure adherence to compliances. The company has already been advised by several of its clients to prepare a checklist of the regulations, and make sure that its virtual event app builder platform abides by all of them. The K&A team is working accordingly. Greater technological flexibility and a wide range of options are major hallmarks of the virtual AGM platform that K&A will be delivering to the Indian corporates. The platform offers full integration with the most popular videoconferencing tools - like Zoom, Webinarjam, YouTube Live, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex and Facebook Live (customisations will be done on an ‘as-required’ basis). The focus is squarely on delivering the integrations that companies will be comfortable with, and will be confident about. The importance of a powerful online conferencing tool for these virtual AGMs is immense. With the coronavirus-triggered lockdowns still in place, it is imperative for corporate houses to connect with shareholders, do the relevant business communication, and offer complete transparency regarding their operations. The AGMs conducted through the platform solution provided by K&A, companies will be able to provide just that. With its virtual AGM platform, K&A is also offering never-before data security and cost-efficiency to the Indian corporates. Key features like e-voting (integrated with the authorised Share Transfer Agent of the Company), shareholder details and time-stamped logs for videoconferencing will be protected by the latest encryption methods. At a time when Covid-19 is seriously denting the earnings of companies, the companies will also get the chance to register huge cost benefits by switching from in-person AGMs to the virtual meetings.  The USP of the virtual AGM platform (apart from its customisable features) is its high user-friendliness. As a well-placed source from K&A explained, it is a zero-coding platform, features can be selected as required by customers, visual elements can be personalised, and shareholders/participants can be added securely, and with ease. There are also options for live q&a, live polls, live push notifications, real-time analytics, and more.  The most remarkable achievement of the K&A team has been making the virtual AGM platform ready for use - within only a few days of these meetings being directed by the MCA. The strategic alliance and partnership with a global technology firm and being the authorised service provider in India, they are setting the ball rolling fast. With online conferences and meetings becoming increasingly mainstream, the scopes of the platform are extensive indeed. Visit https://www.kalolwala.co.in/ to know more about the company and the online platform for virtual AGMs they offer. With permissions for virtually conducted corporate meetings getting the nod from authorities, platforms like this one are all set to gain in popularity immensely in the foreseeable future.
