I-Demurrage, first of its kind of App for Oil Tankers set to save millions of dollars for the tanker industry

Leena Asher creates breakthrough Demurrage calculation app for the oil tankers

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — At last, the oil tanker industry has an app for calculating Demurrage claims on the go. Smartphone apps have been one of the biggest innovations in the turn of the decade, and that has led to a rocketing amount of dependency on apps for work-related purposes.

The energy demands around the world have been rising substantially. This has led to an increase in the number of oil tankers carrying millions of barrels of oil across the globe. The oil tanker industry has witnessed immense increase in Demurrage and associated costs. Its constantly evolving and expanding functionality makes it one of the most crucial parts of the business more than ever today. However, oil tanker owners and charterers continue to face the challenge in Demurrage claims, that stand a risk of being rejected due to late submissions beyond agreement time bars.

In a first, the I-Demurrage app has been created to make the time-consuming process of calculating demurrage more easier. I-Demurrage enables the user to calculate demurrage in a simple and effective format and email calculations to the user’s email ID. The app aspires to save millions in the process. The app, which goes by the name, I-Demurrage, intends to demonstrate features deriving from the letter, 'I' -intelligent, innovative and inclusive results aligned with apps useful for professionals in today's tech-savvy world.

The venture is based in Houston, USA. The app available in android currently, can be used by everyone in the industry anywhere in the world. There are no physical or geographical limitations of using this app. In fact the app can be used to calculate demurrage of a tanker at a port in USA while the demurrage analyst is working from his office or home somewhere in Asia.

Leena Asher, the brain behind the I-Demurrage app, is a Specialist Demurrage Analyst and a subject matter expert in her industry on demurrage. She says, “I identified there’s a need for an app to calculate demurrage after interacting with my industry peers. The process can be made simpler and since we’re in a tech-savvy generation, I decided the app was the need of the day”. As the creator, I hope I-Demurrage saves my industry peers’ time and money in their busy work-routines.”

ZigZag Global – Leading Returns Solution for Retailers

Circularity Capital leads multi-million GBP investment in ZigZag Global, the leading returns solution for retailers.

ZigZag has developed a powerful solution for retailers to address the growing challenge posed by e-commerce returns”

— Ian Nolan, Circularity Capital

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Returns solution ZigZag Global receives multi-million GBP investment

Circularity Capital LLP, the specialist private equity firm supporting growth stage European SMEs in the circular economy, continues to build its portfolio, leading a multi-million pound growth funding round in ZigZag Global, a software solution for retailers to optimally manage the return, consolidation, and resale of products both domestically and internationally.

ZigZag grades returned products and can consolidate, refurbish, locally redistribute, recycle or even resell stock internationally.

The system reduces parcel journeys by up to 65% by identifying opportunities for the repacking and redistribution of returned products within the country of delivery, resulting in a measurable reduction in the wastage and carbon footprint associated with retail returns. ZigZag also reduces the cost and transit time of returns and has been proven to reduce customer related service enquiries by 40%.

Circularity Capital’s investment in ZigZag is consistent with its hands-on approach of backing businesses capturing new sources of value through circular business practices. Circularity Capital’s investment will see it play a key role in supporting the management team accelerate its international roll out plan. Ian Nolan, partner at Circularity Capital, has joined the ZigZag Board.

How to Minimize Costs When Moving According to Kerri Nettles

Kerri Nettles

Moving can be a stressful endeavour at the best of times – and it can also be costly. Kerri Nettles wants to help you minimize those costs.

OCEAN SPRINGS, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nobody likes moving. It’s exhausting, time-consuming and can end up being very expensive. The last thing that anyone wants to think about when packing and hauling their entire lives to a new location is the mounting bill that goes hand in hand with a poorly planned move. With that in mind, real estate expert Kerri Nettles wants to help you discover a number of different ways of keeping the costs low when moving house. That way, you won’t have to worry about money and instead can focus solely on how you’re going to get that piano up the stairs!

Be flexible

“Like any industry, moving has a peak and an off-peak season.” Kerri Nettles says. “If you want to save yourself not only money, but stress, too, then moving in a quieter season is definitely the way forward.” Demand tends to be higher in summer when kids are out of school and parents are desperate to move into a new location before the academic year starts, so if this was your thinking then perhaps try move in the fall or even winter.

Do it yourself

“Movers are expensive.” Kerri Nettles says. “If you’re up to the challenge and have some time on your hands, you can save a substantial amount of money by moving yourself.” Of course, this is easier said than done; moving house is a huge undertaking. You’ll need not only time, but the correct tools such as trolleys, ladders and a decent-sized truck too.

Ask some friends to help out

Need an army of movers for a good price and at very short notice? Why not enlist your friends? For the cost of a case of beer and a couple of pizzas, you could move your entire house in one weekend with the help of your nearest and dearest. The one thing to keep in mind, Kerri Nettles insists, is that you’ll definitely owe them a move in the future.

Get rid of everything you don’t need

Do a spring clean before you move. There’s no sense sweating and hauling heavy packages of things you don’t need. Having extraneous things will only slow you down, so ensure that you get rid of everything that you have absolutely no use for.

FlyawayHomes Announces Groundbreaking of Second Site.

The 2nd FlyawayHomes site will look like this.

The innovative developer will host event on January 25 at 10:00AM.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

FlyawayHomes  and The People Concern, the organizations leading the most innovative and promising solution for homelessness in recent times — converting shipping containers (like the ones found at the Port of Los Angeles) into high quality, cost effective permanent supportive housing — announces the groundbreaking for their next revolutionary project at 837 W 82nd Street in Los Angeles. The People Concern and FlyawayHomes’ mission is to end homelessness in Los Angeles County by rapidly developing high quality, cost effective, shared housing combined with supportive services for the most vulnerable members of our community.  The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 10:00 AM January 25th.

FlyawayHomes and The People Concern recently completed their first supportive housing community, The Steaven K. Jones Supportive Housing Community, located at 820 West Colden Avenue in Los Angeles. The People Concern has placed 6 families and 8 single adults as tenants in this 8 four-bedroom unit development. The People Concern also provides the essential wrap-around supportive services to make sure these tenants stay housed, healthy and safe. This shipping container-based development provides proof that an innovative, high-quality, scalable and cost-effective solution to address the housing challenges of the homeless community of Los Angeles can and is being developed.

Michael Parks, FlyawayHomes’ newly appointed President and CEO, states: “I have joined FlyawayHomes and I am working with The People Concern because I firmly believe together they have a scalable model for building and operating permanent supportive housing that can significantly change the landscape of homelessness in Los Angeles County. This is the solution to homelessness because it comes at a cost our community can afford and a speed which our community needs. I believe that with adequate access to land and capital, combined with the support of the city and county agencies providing rental subsidies and funding for supportive services, we could build 450 supportive communities in the next 10 years and house 20,000 people.”

John Maceri, CEO of The People Concern, states: “We have already witnessed the great impact the first FlyawayHomes site has had for the people we serve. With each new location, we will be able to help so many more rebuild their lives.” Noyan Uras, the Chief Development Officer for FlyawayHomes, adds: “We’ve proven that this type of modular construction can be top-quality, aesthetically beautiful, functional, cost-effective and scalable. These are places people will be proud to call home.”

Steaven K. Jones, the Co-founder of FlyawayHomes and a long-standing Board Member of The People Concern, likes to say: “Permanent homes cure homelessness! Each of us needs to do our part by contributing time, energy and money to the most vulnerable in our society. We CAN end homelessness if each of us does our part. Now is the time; our community must solve this problem.”

FlyawayHomes has partnered with The People Concern, a 501(c)3 nonprofit social services agency in Los Angeles that provides a fully integrated system of care – including outreach, interim housing, mental and medical health care, substance abuse services, domestic violence services, lifeskills & wellness programs, and permanent supportive housing – to those experiencing homelessness or domestic violence, because everyone should be #housedhealthysafe.

He argued that freedom came in two forms. To put it crudely those two forms were freedom from external constraints and freedom to achieve. These two concepts have found an unlikely home and marriage within the systemic workings of The Job Auction, a jobs site which allows users to bid on jobs they want, post tasks they want done and arrange payment as they see fit.

It’s a leap but The Job Auction provides freedom for its users to achieve in any sense they want. The platform is there to make sure that any limits are set only by the users themselves. The role of the auctioneer is, in a sense, rendered pointless on this platform. There is no mediating force that tells you what you can and cannot bid for or accept. It’s all down to you.

Posting listings for tasks or even advertising your own skills are free at first and the packages you can pick are made specifically to cater for the needs of everyone economically. Non-profits can list themselves and whichever tasks or jobs they would like for free, now and forever because The Job Auction doesn’t believe in making a profit out of non-profits.
While the comparison to Berlin’s definitions of liberty is rudimentary and unpolished the levels of influence and therefore aid you can get from The Job Auction team is entirely up to you, meaning freedom to achieve is on offer as is freedom from constraints. The CV Clinic, a place where you can have a team of experts advise you on how to tweak your CV for public consumption and the blog and its multiple articles on every nook and cranny of the jobs market are there for any advice you might need before venturing off into the world of job auctioning.

The way The Job Auction defines its options is also a critical component to its success. The options of ‘Tasks’ and ‘Skill Auction’ make it so the pathways are widened and what constitutes work is entirely up to the user. The other users can then bid on the auction. The prime selling point of the platform is that with an auction nobody goes any higher or any lower than they are willing to go. Nobody is strong-armed into doing something they wouldn’t otherwise do.
In a sense, The Job Auction has everything you would need from a job board. It bestows power ergo freedom to the users if that’s what they choose and if not they can use its more traditional settings.
