Top of their requirement list was the adaptive reuse of the existing workstations and reducing the under utilised space with smart office design.

“What was great about this project, was Air Liquide’s motivation to reuse their existing furniture,“ said Jane Bright, Design Director, Charter Build. “All the desks and workstations had been looked after so well, with some innovative space planning and a few additional key parts, we were able to save the company thousands of dollars, as well as reduce our impact on the environment.”

Australian Lending Centre Produces Bad Credit Loans Focus Website

 Bad Credit Loans Website   Australian Lending Centre, one of the country’s largest providers and leading suppliers of alternative loan products, debt consolidation services and refinancing has launched a website to assist borrowers, especially those suffering with bad credit in meeting their financial problems. I’m sure you and I would agree that having bad credit is a major stumbling block in acquiring a loan as you’re considered as a high risk customer, but just because you have bad credit doesn’t mean you can’t get a loan. Bad credit loans actually help out people who have made financial mistakes in the past so they can get back on their feet. This kind of loan though usually has higher interest rates so it’s important that you commit into paying it back to improve your credit score. Australian Lending Centre’s loan offerings are designed for all types of purposes – personal loans, business loans, low doc loans, small loans and bad credit history loans among others, but through the launch of their bad credit loans focused website, intended specifically for those with credit scores that are less than perfect, Australians can now easily qualify for a loan. The website itself provides a myriad of helpful information and resources to help anyone in a bad credit situation. It’s interactive and has a good balance of functionality and design improving the customer’s experience. The proof of a good website is when it shows up in the search results. The bad credit loans website has actually shot up from nowhere and is currently #19 for the search term “bad credit loans” which means that they are getting traffic – definitely a good sign for a newbie website. With over 20 years of experience in providing loan options to Australians nationwide, the company has helped thousands of customers with their financial crises. Australian Lending Centr specialises in financial services and offers a comprehensive range of loan options for people across Australia.

Sharepoint 2016 Release

sharepoint 2016     “The Board today judged that leaving the cash rate unchanged was appropriate at this meeting. Information on economic and financial conditions to be received over the period ahead will inform the Board’s assessment of the outlook and hence whether the current stance of policy will most effectively foster sustainable growth and inflation consistent with the target” – RBA Statement.
If the RBA is hawkish about the inflationary outlook of the economy and rises the interest rates it is considered bullish for the Australian dollar. Similarly, if the RBA has a dovish view on the Australian economy and keeps the ongoing interest rate, or cuts the interest rate, it is considered bearish. Regardless of whether the RBA increases, decreases, or maintains the interest rate, the decision of the RBA always has an effect on the Australian Dollar.
Increasing the interest rate appreciates the currency and decreasing the interest rate generally has a depreciating effect on the currency. There are 2 key ways in which forex traders can trade the Australian dollar with the RBA rate decision: Before the RBA delivers it’s decision:
~ If the RBA decision matches the market’s expectations then forex traders generally do not enter a trade either way.
~ If the RBA cuts interest rates when the market was expecting it to increase or to stay on hold, traders usually sell the Australia dollar.
~ If the RBA increases interest rates when the market was expecting them cut or to stay on hold, traders usually buy the Australian dollar. The other way is trading after the RBA has delivered it’s decision:
~ -If the RBA decision matches expectations; traders generally do not enter into a trade.
~ If the RBA cuts interest rates when the market was expecting it to increase or to stay on hold, traders usually sell the Australia dollar.
~ If the RBA increases interest rates when the market was expecting them cut or to stay on hold, trades usually buy the Australian dollar.

Australian Retailer Saved By Mobile POS From Retail Express

The devastating April storms in NSW left many businesses without power and unable to trade but with the use of the mobile POS from Retail Express, Opposite Lock were able to recommence trading with ease.
retail-express-logo-2 “Mobile POS is a relatively new technology often overlooked by retailers but can be a very useful tool for businesses” said founder and CEO Aaron Blackman. “Without previously running a mobile POS in store, the Retail Express support staff had it up and running in less than 5 minutes” said Melanie Allerton, owner of the Newcastle Opposite Lock store. She went on to say “it was the perfect opportunity to grab email addresses as our receipt printer was out of action as well”.
The option to be mobile on a showroom floor gives retailers the ability to interact with customers right where they’re browsing. Whether they need a different color or are ready to complete the sale, the ability to have the POS software running on an iPad or Android tablet is very useful.
Retailers can use the full services of Retail Express POS on most tablet devices including:
•   Look up any item.
•   Make a sale.
•   Email a receipt.
•   Take customer details for future marketing purposes.
•   Do a transfer of stock to and from another store.
•   Combat showrooming by being present with the customer in store and answering any questions with the required search tools on hand.
“We’ve had several of our clients report a reduction in showrooming after initiating mobile POS in their stores” said Mr Blackman.
Given that customers are now opting for the convenience of mobile to answer any questions about a store, stock or reviews, having the ability to assist them on the showroom floor is priceless. The Retail Express mobile POS option comes standard as a feature of the software.
