Non Profit Launches Business Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

We have to change the narrative. We need to take the politics out of our governance. We need to come together as a community if we are to be successful.”

— Steve Anderson

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colors associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. The Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and extensive research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity, and taking advantage of a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, not some, but ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses. Steve is a good man, and SBE needs his character to bring everyone together.

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

Руководство-Поиск поставщика в Китае что нужно знать ?

Москва, Россия, May 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — В последние несколько лет наблюдается огромный всплеск интереса к Китаю. Иностранные компании пользуются преимуществами более низких производственных и трудовых затрат в стране, а также огромным рыночным потенциалом, который предлагает страна. Если вы думаете о том, чтобы найти посредника в Китае для своей продукции, это руководство поможет вам плавно пройти через этот процесс.

ЧТО НУЖНО УЧИТЫВАТЬ, ПРЕЖДЕ ЧЕМ ИСКАТЬ ПОСТАВЩИКА ИЗ КИТАЯ?

В то время как Китай был популярной страной для поиска дешевых поставщиков в последние годы, у него была своя изрядная доля историй успеха и катастроф. Вот почему вы должны тщательно рассмотреть следующие моменты, прежде чем отправиться в Китай.

Китай-отличное место, если вы хотите выйти на азиатский рынок, но более низкие производственные затраты больше не являются убедительным аргументом

Какова ваша основная мотивация для работы с китайскими поставщиками? Это более дешевые цены или вы также рассматриваете возможность запуска своих продуктов на китайском рынке? Если вы думаете о Китае только для того, чтобы сократить расходы, вам также следует обратить внимание на другие страны.

В то время как Китай, безусловно, известен своими более дешевыми производственными и трудовыми затратами в последние годы, цены в Китае значительно выросли. Кроме того, более дешевая электроэнергия привела к снижению затрат в таких странах, как США, что делает ее менее привлекательной для производства за рубежом.

В статье Fortune за 2015 год освещаются исследования Бостонской консалтинговой группы, которая оценивает, что производство в США будет примерно на 2% дешевле, чем в Китае в ближайшие годы. Поэтому, если затраты являются вашей единственной причиной для аутсорсинга в Китай, подумайте дважды.

С другой стороны, если вы стремитесь расширить свои деловые операции в Китае или в целом на азиатском рынке, Китай является жизнеспособным вариантом. Стоимость доставки Китай будет ниже, а близость Китая к растущим рынкам, таким как Индия и Южная Корея, может помочь вашему бизнесу создать ценные сети в регионе.

Интеллектуальная собственность плохо защищена-если деловые секреты имеют решающее значение для вашего успеха, Китай может оказаться не самым подходящим местом для вас

Правовой ландшафт в Китае может быть сложным для навигации. Кроме того, проблемы интеллектуальной собственности являются обычным явлением в Китае, когда правительство и компании обвиняют китайские фирмы в откровенном шпионаже и воровстве. Поэтому вы должны тщательно обдумать, каким объемом информации вы готовы поделиться с китайским поставщиком. В зависимости от типа поставщика, которого вы ищете, вам необходимо понимать процедуры управления рисками и договорные рамки. Определенно стоит подумать о том, чтобы нанять квалифицированного и опытного юриста для руководства.
Качество, скорее всего, не будет наравне с европейскими или американскими поставщиками?
Естественно, вам необходимо учитывать качество продуктов и услуг. Контрафактные продукты являются проблемой в Китае, поэтому вам нужно быть осторожным, если вы имеете дело с фирменными продуктами. Более того, большинство китайских поставщиков не смогут производить продукцию такого же уровня качества, как европейские или американские поставщики. В то время как качество может быть достаточным для некоторых продуктов, это создаст проблемы в таких секторах, как высокие технологии.
Различия в деловой культуре могут привести к путанице
Деловая культура Китая может существенно отличаться от западной модели. Если вы не знакомы с китайской культурой, вам следует прочитать об их способе общения и ведения бизнеса.

Например, посмотрите приведенное ниже видео о проблемах ведения бизнеса в Китае:

Существует множество рекомендаций по преодолению некоторых из этих барьеров. По мере того как в стране работает все больше иностранных компаний, улучшается связь между китайскими поставщиками и их зарубежными коллегами. Соберите информацию о местной деловой культуре и попросите совета у других компаний, работающих в стране. Также может помочь обращение к межкультурному консультанту.

ПОЙМИТЕ СВОИ ПОТРЕБНОСТИ – ЧЕГО ВЫ ОЖИДАЕТЕ ОТ ПОСТАВЩИКА?

Если вы настроились на Китай, вы можете начать поиск поставщика:

• Вам нужен производитель в Китае или сторонний поставщик? Вы должны определить, надеетесь ли вы найти производителя или стороннего поставщика, поскольку процесс может отличаться в зависимости от ваших потребностей.
• Вы хотите иметь дело с небольшой компанией или крупной корпорацией? Когда дело доходит до поставщиков, в Китае существует огромное количество доступных товаров. В зависимости от потребностей вашего бизнеса вы можете предпочесть иметь дело с крупной корпорацией, которая приобрела опыт работы с иностранными компаниями. Крупные корпорации также могли бы иметь в своих руках лучший пул ресурсов, что может быть важно для вашего бизнеса. С другой стороны, малый бизнес может обеспечить более тесные отношения и лучше реагировать на ваши индивидуальные потребности.
• Каков ваш бюджет? Бюджет, безусловно, играет большую роль в поиске поставщика. У вас должно быть четкое представление о том, сколько вы можете и готовы заплатить, чтобы не тратить время на разговоры с поставщиками с дорогими затратами.
• Какие функции продукта/услуги необходимы? Что вы считаете бонусом? Важно заранее обрисовать особенности продукта или услуги. Если вы не знаете, чего ожидаете, общаясь с поставщиками, вы легко можете заплатить больше, чем хотели, или получить продукт, который не соответствует вашим потребностям. Будьте ясны в том, что вам нужно иметь, и какие функции вы не возражаете иметь, но можете жить без них.

Определение потребностей вашего поставщика с помощью приведенных выше вопросов может помочь вам понять тип поставщика, который вам нужен. Это поможет вам сэкономить время и деньги, так как вы сможете быстро подобрать поставщиков, которые соответствуют описанию.

Кроме того, если вы в конечном итоге попросите внешнюю помощь в поиске, вам нужно будет предоставить эту информацию агентству по поиску. Это облегчит их работу и гарантирует, что вы не будете платить больше, чем необходимо.

НАЧНИТЕ ПОИСК – ИСПОЛЬЗУЙТЕ ОНЛАЙН-И ОФЛАЙН-РЕСУРСЫ ДЛЯ ОПРЕДЕЛЕНИЯ ПОТЕНЦИАЛЬНЫХ ПОСТАВЩИКОВ

Найти поставщика в Китае будет не так сложно, как вы думаете, так как есть несколько каналов, по которым можно начать поиск. Хотя количество вариантов может показаться подавляющим, вы можете использовать стратегический подход к своему поиску. Вы уже сузили свой поиск, определив, что вам нужно, и теперь вы можете определить подходящий канал для поиска идеального соответствия.

Вы должны создать файл для мониторинга подходящих вариантов поставщиков во время вашего исследования. Если вы столкнулись с подлинным ресурсным сайтом или возможным поставщиком, введите основную информацию о компании в свой файл. Это может просто включать такую информацию, как имя, контактные данные, адрес веб-сайта и несколько кратких заметок о том, почему вы предпочитаете определенного поставщика.

Таким образом, вы создадите базу данных опций, которая позволит вам сравнивать разных поставщиков в ходе процесса. Вы также не хотите тратить слишком много времени на то, чтобы сосредоточиться на отдельных поставщиках. Как только у вас будет выбор доступных поставщиков, вы можете начать связываться с предпочтительными вариантами.
Провести предварительное исследование в Интернете
Неудивительно, что Интернет-идеальное место для начала поиска. Вы должны использовать его для проведения предварительных исследований и получения общего представления о том, какие варианты поставщиков доступны.

Вы можете быстро выполнить поиск в Google по ключевым словам, таким как "посредники в Китае". Не забудьте сузить ключевые слова с любыми конкретными типами поставщиков, которые вам нужны. Например, "поставщики одежды в Китае".

Кроме того, социальные сети могут помочь вам идентифицировать китайских поставщиков. Такие платформы, как LinkedIn, имеют профессиональные группы, которые могут быть полезны в поиске поставщиков, а также в получении помощи в этом процессе. Проверьте такие группы, как China Sourcing и China Trade Group.
Просмотр веб-сайтов B2B
Популярные B2B-сайты и бизнес-каталоги предоставляют множество вариантов поставщиков. Вы должны посетить такие веб-сайты, как:

• Alibaba.com
• Forbuyers.com
• Globalsources.com

Главное – помнить, что существует множество B2B-сайтов и бизнес-каталогов, но не все из них являются законными. Работайте только с надежными и проверенными веб-сайтами. Кроме того, вы должны убедиться, что поставщики проверены.
Поговорите с торговыми организациями и деловыми палатами
Еще одним отличным источником для поиска поставщиков и дополнительной информации являются торговые организации и деловые палаты вашей страны. Эти организации могут предоставить вам контактные данные и установить первые контакты в стране. Вы можете найти их, выполнив поиск “(страна) деловая палата Китая” или “(страна) торговая организация Китая”.

Помните, что вам не обязательно иметь дело с организациями вашей страны. Небольшие страны, например, могут не иметь своих собственных деловых палат в Китае, но вы также можете иметь дело с организациями других стран. Кроме того, в Европейском союзе есть деловая палата в Китае, с которой, возможно, стоит связаться.

Различные торговые ассоциации и выставки также должны быть в вашем списке исследований. Выставки не только идеально подходят для встречи с поставщиками лицом к лицу, но и предоставляют множество практической информации о работе с китайскими поставщиками.

Обратите внимание, что вы часто можете найти китайских поставщиков на крупных отраслевых выставках за пределами Китая. Если вы знаете, что поблизости проходит торговая выставка, уточните у организаторов, присутствуют ли на выставке китайские поставщики.

Кроме того, вы можете посетить торговые выставки в Китае. Кантонская ярмарка-это крупная торговая выставка, представляющая ряд отраслей промышленности. Он проводится два раза в год, и вы можете узнать больше о нем на официальном сайте (на английском языке).
Сеть с другими компаниями
Вам следует поговорить с другими компаниями в вашей отрасли или за ее пределами, которые уже ведут бизнес в Китае. Сначала вы могли бы сосредоточиться на своих конкурентах. Поиск информации, относящейся к вашему продукту или услуге. Изучите всплывающие компании и проверьте, используют ли они китайских поставщиков. Если да, то с какими компаниями они работают?

Однако вы также должны быть осторожны при поиске агента, так как разные агенты по поиску поставщиков используют разные структуры сборов. Следовательно, убедитесь, что вы понимаете затраты заранее, чтобы избежать дорогостоящего счета.

Кроме того, как и в случае с сайтами B2B, существует ряд непрофессиональных специалистов. Вы хотите проверить лицензию и надежность агента по подбору поставщиков. Проконсультируйтесь с другими компаниями и деловыми палатами, могут ли они порекомендовать вам компанию или физическое лицо.

СВЯЖИТЕСЬ С ВАШИМ ВЫБОРОМ ПОСТАВЩИКА, НО СНАЧАЛА ПОЙМИТЕ ДЕЛОВУЮ КУЛЬТУРУ

Описанные выше шаги должны предоставить вам список потенциальных поставщиков. Вам следует провести дальнейшее исследование потенциальных компаний и начать контактировать с теми, которые кажутся перспективными.

Обратите внимание, что китайские компании часто имеют представителей в других странах, особенно в крупных корпорациях. Это отличная идея организовать встречу с этими представителями бизнеса, чтобы лучше понять структуру организации и подход к бизнесу.

Вы также можете посетить Китай самостоятельно. Организуйте встречи с различными представителями перед бронированием поездки, чтобы гарантировать, что вы встретите как можно больше поставщиков, не продлевая свой визит.

Вы также можете использовать свои местные контакты, чтобы помочь вам организовать встречи или начать общение. Особенно ценную помощь на этом этапе оказывают местные зарубежные деловые палаты и отраслевые организации.

Кроме того, убедитесь, что вы хорошо разбираетесь в деловом этикете в Китае. Вы не хотите "входить в бизнес" слишком рано, так как хотите построить правильные рабочие отношения с вашим поставщиком.

Наконец, не забудьте нанять юрисконсульта, который поможет вам с оформлением документов и проведет должную проверку потенциальных поставщиков. Выберите эксперта с опытом работы с китайскими поставщиками.

ПРОВЕРЬТЕ КАЧЕСТВО ПРОДУКЦИИ И ОБСЛУЖИВАНИЕ КЛИЕНТОВ

Вместо того, чтобы составлять полный контракт на этом этапе, проверьте качество поставщика, заказав сначала образец продукта. Вы не хотите заказывать сотни продуктов только для того, чтобы узнать, что они не совсем того качества, которое вы ожидали.

Выберите несколько поставщиков и попробуйте их продукцию не только для качества продукта, но и для качества услуг, которые вы получаете. Вы хотите, чтобы обслуживание клиентов, темпы производства и доставки продукта и другие подобные вопросы соответствовали ожидаемому стандарту.

Как только вы получите образцы от своих поставщиков, спросите мнение других людей. Это могут быть ваши потенциальные клиенты на отраслевой ярмарке или ваши друзья и семья. Более крупные компании, вероятно, имеют своих собственных специалистов по продуктам, которые должны изучить продукт.

Если вы не удовлетворены продуктом или тем, как был обработан заказ, не стесняйтесь уйти. Вы не хотите в конечном итоге иметь дело с поставщиком, который только создает проблемы для вашего бизнеса в долгосрочной перспективе.

ПРОДОЛЖАЙТЕ, ЗАВЕРШИТЕ СДЕЛКУ И УСТАНОВИТЕ ДОЛГОСРОЧНЫЕ ДЕЛОВЫЕ ОТНОШЕНИЯ

Наконец, когда вы найдете поставщика, который соответствует вашим ожиданиям и потребностям, вы должны продолжать общаться с компанией. Вы хотите развивать отношения с течением времени, познакомиться с ними и стать ценным деловым партнером.

Закажите еще один патч образцов и продолжайте следить за качеством продукта. Первая партия может быть высшего качества, так как поставщики хотят произвести на вас впечатление, но вам будет постоянно нужно качество. Поэтому вы должны установить эффективные процедуры контроля качества.

Переговоры о процессе оплаты с вашими китайскими поставщиками требуют от вас проведения надлежащей проверки. Вам необходимо снизить риски и обеспечить, чтобы оплата производилась по безопасным каналам.

Кроме того, процедура оплаты в Китае отличается от других стран, и поставщики часто предпочитают использовать для оплаты такие методы, как переводы Western Union. Хотя это связано с высокими затратами, в Китае не всегда есть ряд других доступных вариантов. Не забудьте также рассмотреть такие способы оплаты, как условное депонирование и Paypal для небольших платежей и международный банковский перевод для более крупных платежей. Однако следите за расходами, они могут сложиться довольно быстро.

Это определенно отличная идея нанять опытного юриста, который поможет вам в этом процессе. Это может увеличить первоначальные затраты, но в долгосрочной перспективе сэкономит вам деньги. Это также может гарантировать, что вы не закончите судебную тяжбу на ваших руках.

В целом, поиск поставщика в Китае требует большого количества исследований. Преимущества использования китайских поставщиков остаются плодотворными, а доступные варианты огромны. Если вы раньше не работали с китайскими компаниями, вам следует узнать о деловой культуре и процессе использования иностранных поставщиков в целом. Имейте в виду, что вы должны полностью понять, чего вы ожидаете от поставщика, прежде чем спешить в Китай. Есть и другие доступные варианты, и вы не можете быть слишком осторожны в отношении ограничения рисков.

Flexible Mounting VESA for Ares755

Multiple mounting options

The Clientron Ares755 is designed from the ground up for POS retail applications that need a little more kick than low-power systems provide.

Ares755 is built with an Intel® Core processor, providing a spread of options to cover various use cases and enabling upgradable performance customization to suit increased processing demands.”

— Clientron Corp.

TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, May 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — High-Performance Retail POS – Clientron Ares755

The ultimate high-performance point-of-sale (POS) system for the retail and hospitality industries requires a combination of powerful computing hardware with maintenance-free components that provide desktop-level computing power with all the convenience needed for a retail POS. The Clientron Ares755 is designed from the ground up for POS retail applications that need a little more kick than low-power systems provide.

System Integrators Care About…

Enhanced system performance

At the heart of the Ares755 is a powerful 7th generation Intel® Core or Celeron processor, providing a spread of options to cover various use cases and enabling upgradable performance customization to suit increased processing demands. With powerful processors comes overheating risks, so to counter this, the Ares755 has a fanless design that ensures the system stays cool without utilizing failure-prone and noisy system fans.

To further enhance system performance, up to 16 GB of DDR RAM allows multiple programs to run on the system at any time without bogging down the system or resulting in excessive delays. Finally, SATA III and M.2 quicken the pace by bringing the fastest hard drive connection standards to the table.
Tool-free I/O expansion

One major frustration for system integrators is making changes to system hardware, especially when this requires a heavy set of tools and fiddling with multiple devices. When installing a new system on location, they want a quick and simple switch. The Ares755 has a clever I/O expansion slot for different I/O expansion cards without needing any tools for installation. Not even a screwdriver. Two cards are available.

• "Type C" — 1x 24V powered USB, 2x USB 2.0, mic-in, and line-out
• "Type E" — 4x USB2.0, and COM (via RJ45 with 5V/12V DC).

Plentiful peripherals
Easy-to-install peripherals are the best choice for simpler installation and a more stylish final product. Traditional approaches that add every peripheral with large standalone hardware attached with a long cable are unattractive compared to integrated extras. The Ares755 has a range of peripherals available that connect seamlessly to the main system. These include:

• 1D/2D barcode scanner
• Magnetic stripe reader
• i-Button reader
• RFID reader
• Fingerprint reader
• WiFi and Bluetooth

This comprehensive selection covers the vast majority of typical retail POS client needs.

Low-hassle installation

The greatest frustration for frontline employees installing retail POS systems is performing maintenance on hard-to-reach parts, especially the system internals. Usually, hard drives are difficult to replace, requiring opening the system case, unscrewing the hard drives, then replacing them. The use of hard drive cloning, which saves untold hours installing new operating systems, makes having an easily swappable hard drive necessary. On the Ares755, hard drive swaps are super simple because the system has an easy-access 2.5" SSD bay for easy installation and maintenance.

Jumper-free settings

People unfamiliar with the retail POS industry might not know how difficult it is to flip a simple switch. Selecting the voltage on DC-powered COM ports usually requires opening up the system and not just flipping a switch but removing and replacing tiny jumpers in hard-to-reach spaces on the system motherboard. The Ares755 solves this by eliminating the jumpers and placing the 5V/12V DC COM power selection in the BIOS settings. Turn on the system and make the change without opening up the computer and digging through the electronics.

Multiple mounting options

The Ares755 has standard VESA mounting. That may seem bland, but with the ubiquitous use of VESA as the defacto mounting standard, it covers any installation requirement. Clientron also provides mounting stands. The desktop stand places the system on the desktop and is the simplest and most common approach. The long arm mount option provides a massive range of movement, can be attached almost anywhere near the counter, and can be moved in multiple directions with ease.

End Users Care About…

Slim and modern design

Powerful internals makes the system tick, but the external parts make the day-to-day use a dream. On the employee side, the tempered glass screen saves minutes every day. The 6H toughness is scratchproof, so wipedowns and everyday swiping on the optional multi-touch display won't leave unsightly scuffs. With cleanliness in mind, the bezel-free design eliminates corners where dust and grime usually build up and make it difficult to clean. Finally, the screen is IP64, so small splashes and the moisture from cleaning will not get into the system and cause havoc with sensitive electronics components.
Customer-facing display

For retail customers, a clear view of the products they've bought is their primary concern. Two different customer-facing display options are available for the Ares755 retail POS to meet varied uses-cases. The basic option is VFD, typically used to display information in text form, such as item description and price during checkout. The fancier option, the preferred customer display option, is the 8" or 9.7" bezel-free display that provides a full-color experience that allows for more detailed information, including images, for a more interactive and exciting customer experience.

CMC Sales and Marketing’s Partnership with Simplified Trade has Exceeded All Expectations

The partnership was made just one year ago and has been instrumental in building sales and supporting client satisfaction.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CMC Sales and Marketing is pleased to announce that the partnership with Simplified Trade, now just over a year old, is resulting in increased sales due to real time transparency – enabling the company to affect immediate change to support clients.

CMC Sales and Marketing is a premier full-service food brokerage company specializing in conventional and Hispanic retail channels for perishables, grocery, and multi-cultural products. The company boasts over 30 years of expertise working in the industry and the markets it serves. At its core, CMC Sales and Marketing prides itself on its superior performance record, deep market relationships, and transparent model.

This year marks the one year anniversary of CMC’s partnership with Simplified Trade and its founder, Matt King. The collaboration enables CMC to quickly update survey questions, pull store reports (including photos), and target sales and merchandising opportunities. As such, this has resulted in remarkable growth for clients that eclipsed the national average by double digits.

“Unfortunately, the broker community has a reputation of ‘smoke and mirrors,’” says Amanda Grillo, President of CMC Sales and Marketing. “When we say ‘transparent model’ in our messaging to clients, we mean it. Our clients have direct real-time access to audits, photos, comments, and reports. They never have to wait for us, or a third party, to download.”

"Manufacturers who don’t have real-time transparency with their retail teams and broker partners are at a significant disadvantage to the competition,” states Matt King, founder of Simplified Trade. “In the current ultra-competitive retail environment, getting month-old retail recaps from your brokers just doesn’t cut it. What good is a report that informs you about a threat or opportunity when it’s too late to respond. What’s worse is these reports won’t keep these opportunities from passing you by again."

“Partnering with Simplified Trade has made our retail team more efficient and effective,” Grillo concludes. “Transparency means accountability internally and to our brand and retail partners.”

Clients of CMC Sales and Marketing are also raving about the ongoing partnership, including the parent company of Bob’s Big Boy refrigerated salad dressings, Flavor of California.

"Simplified Trade is a game-changer for our business,” says Julie Pantiskas, CEO & President of the company. “It allows us to have real-time grocery store data at our fingertips to see if a store is set and stocked correctly. By providing retailers with this information, we have reduced out-of-stocks which lead to double digit increases."

"I deal with a lot of reports from others brokers but Simplified Trade from CMC is one of the most accurate and real time pictures of store activity and they customize my audit reports,” says Otis McAllister – Director of Hispanic, Albert Bueso.

About the Company

CMC Sales and Marketing is a full-service food brokerage company committed to a transparent model and to the regions it knows well. The company is fully committed to selling strategies that generate sales and profits, while working within the needs and expectations of the retailers, distributors, and foremost, the clients it serves.

SmALL Business is Essential Launches Universal Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colours associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. Our Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and much research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity during a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, no, ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses when doing the right thing. “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.”

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

From Tubes to Tennis Rackets

With the help of Solatube International, a Second Serve shipment of gently used tennis equipment arrives in Kampala, Uganda.

Solatube is the leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Skylights.

Solatube Serves up Hope with Second Serve

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Being the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Skylights, Solatube International Inc. is used to brightening people’s lives. But today, Solatube is lending support to communities near and far and serving up hope by donating its shipping facility to Second Serve.

Second Serve is a youth-run nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of underprivileged children who love tennis by redistributing gently used tennis equipment to underserved communities. Second Serve not only donates to a multitude of low-income communities throughout the United States but also around the world. They support children who have a passion for tennis in 15 countries, including Uganda, China, Mexico, India, Argentina, Nigeria, Rwanda, Haiti, Ethiopia, Chile, Scotland, and Zimbabwe.

“Solatube is a giving company. Over the 14 years I have worked for Solatube International, we have always tried to help our community in any way we can. When I learned that there was a group of local young women who were collecting tennis equipment to donate to underprivileged kids around the world but didn’t have the resources to get their shipments where they needed to go, I knew we could help them,” said Tim Deming, director of marketing for Solatube International.

“Solatube ships to over 120 countries and we have the network to get the donations where they were needed most. Thanks to Solatube’s incredible warehouse manager John Spencer, and his team in the shipping department, the first round of shipments arrived seamlessly and soon more will follow,” added Deming.

This month, a shipment of more than 400 items, including tennis rackets, shoes, bags, reusable water bottles and clothing were sent to underprivileged kids in Haiti, Zimbabwe and Uganda.

“We are so grateful for Solatube’s help! We were having tremendous trouble getting our tennis equipment shipped around the world. When Solatube stepped up, we were finally able to have our shipments arrive with little issues, said Emily D., Regional President of Fallbrook and Director of International Logistics for Second Serve. “It’s so amazing to see the smiles on the kids’ faces when they receive the tennis equipment and get a chance to play. It warms my heart to see how big of a difference Second Serve has had,” she added.

The Solatube team is no stranger to helping others. In 2020, during the pandemic, they turned their manufacturing facility into a place where much-needed PPE was created and distributed to hospitals and police departments around the country. The company is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year.

About Solatube International
Solatube International, Inc., widely recognized as the daylighting industry innovator, has earned worldwide acclaim for its unrivaled ability to transform interior spaces with natural light. Based in California, the company is the leading manufacturer and marketer of tubular daylighting devices (TDDs) for all types of residential and commercial applications, and residential energy-efficient home ventilation systems.

Instant Connect named a 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor

BETTER TEAMWORK: Team members essential to the mission are connected using any device they want – mobile, radio, IP, even telephony. Non-essential workers are excluded, eliminating needless clutter and distraction.

Instant Connect recognized for its dynamic frontline communications software – the next generation of push-to-talk communications

Being a Gartner Cool Vendor reflects the innovative nature of our next-gen frontline communications platform”

— Forrest Claypool

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Instant Connect Software LLC, a global leader in interoperable frontline communications, announced today that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the 2021 Gartner "Cool Vendors in Frontline Worker Technologies" report.

"We are thrilled to be a Gartner Cool Vendor, a recognition that we believe reflects the innovative nature of our next-generation frontline communications software platform," said Forrest Claypool, CEO of Instant Connect. "While conventional push-to-talk has served a vital role for frontline workers, Instant Connect offers a new generation of smart mobile-radio-IP communications with dynamic talk groups, automated workflows based on IoT and other data-based triggers, advanced geofencing, and even serverless deployments that can be up and running in minutes. These cross-platform, automation-rich advances are fueling significant improvements in frontline collaboration, business productivity, and worker safety. This is where frontline communications is heading."

Instant Connect software combines the traditional benefits of push-to-talk with new automated capabilities, including Dynamic Talk Groups, that are changing how enterprises keep their workforces connected, productive, and safe. The impact of this innovation is broad and wide across multiple global industries – mining, utilities, oil/gas, transportation, sports/events, manufacturing, higher education, government, military, and more.

“Regardless of the industry, frontline workers tend to work in teams sharing common tasks, missions, and deliverables, whether it’s to execute a scheduled workflow or resolve an unexpected emergency. Instant Connect software intuitively understands this and creates talk groups connecting only the workers essential to the mission,” said Claypool. “Team members instantly get all the information they need, with none of the clutter of conventional push-to-talk. The voice channels can be fluidly assembled, disassembled, expanded, or reduced in real-time, connecting teams across any device or network – radio, mobile, IP, and even telephony – so subscribers can freely share voice and data without technology or terrain getting in the way.”

The Instant Connect platform allows team members to participate in multiple dynamic talk groups at the same time, eliminating the communications gaps inherent in conventional push-to-talk. They don’t have to jump off of a channel in order to respond to additional calls and tasks. This multi-channel flexibility is critical in today’s fast-moving environments in which frontline workers often juggle multiple missions simultaneously.

Dynamic Frontline Communications represents the inevitable next-step as Voice Over IP (VoIP) and Radio over IP (RoIP) accelerate from niche usage to widely-embraced group communications that are cross-platform and mission-based. Gartner Research predicts that up to 70% of new mobile and endpoint investments over the next five years will be for frontline workers.

L.A. Fashion Designer's Guide To Starting a Clothing Line

The independent fashion designer's way to bring their product to the masses and start a clothing line: LA Clothing Manufacturer, The Evans Group.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Evans Group, led by fashion designer Jennifer Evans, offers various design services to help you start a clothing line.

But how do aspiring designers go about starting their clothing lines on a budget? The Evans Group offers methods for brand-building with industry quality and smaller budgets.

How Does the Evans Group Help You In Starting a Clothing Line?

Drawing upon her extensive business sense and fashion acumen, Evans and her team of talented professionals foster an environment of empathy and creative freedom. This goes a long way toward helping small-time designers build up their own brands in a competitive fashion market.

The process of starting your own clothing line becomes an easier, more straightforward creative process with the creative services The Evans Group provides.

With nearly 2,000 different clients and customers since 2005, the Evans Group has been a dominant force in fashion in Los Angeles. Based out of the Arts District in Downtown L.A., fashion haute couture has been TEG's claim to fame.

If an independent designer uses The Evans Group's methods, they will have access to various professional services. Once the designer contacts TEG, possibilities begin to appear. You'll have access to expert pattern and sample-making services, project managers, and other masters of their craft that make Los Angeles fashion so iconic.

Envision Your Brand’s Goals

What does your brand stand for? What are you trying to deliver to customers and consumers? This is a crucial first step in establishing your brand or fashion label. The Evans Group helps you with this by delving deep into what makes comprehensive fashion work once it leaves the manufacturer.

First, designers meet for a consultation with the team. This is where Jennifer Evans and her team of different experts meet online or off to discuss the goals and ideals of the designer. Budgets, timelines, and future pricing plans are all hashed out during the process. TEG offers you a comprehensive business plan to move forward.

Design and Source Materials

Without materials like prints and fabric, your ambitious goal to start your own clothing line is dead on arrival. That’s why you need to familiarize yourself with what fabrics and materials you want to use with your clothing line.

TEG communicates with clients to ensure that clothing orders have all of the applicable fabrics and materials. Depending on whether you choose small or large-scale production, the company will tailor the brand’s needs accordingly.

Independent designers can regularly meet with Evans and people to nail the personal look and feel that they want to start a clothing line.

Develop Your Brand

Starting your clothing brand takes a lot more than just materials like good fabric, sewing skills, and an online presence. Deep and meaningful communication between the LA-based clothing manufacturer is essential. Any mixed messages can put your brand in serious jeopardy. Who wants a bungled fashion launch because someone got measurements wrong or used the wrong color or fabric?

Jennifer Evans wants those ambitions to turn into tangible results. As such, a constant line of communication between the designer and Jennifer Evans remains open, allowing for the continuous development and implementation of successful ideas to take hold.

Produce the Clothing

After all of the above steps have been completed, it’s time to build your vision. Pairing talented textile workers with determined designers can make this vision an attractive reality.

Textile workers at TEG begin the process of manufacturing clothes, ensuring all of your specifications are accurate. Cutters, sewists, and textile workers all go to work, bringing a brand to life.

Keep in mind; it can take quite some time to produce a large amount of specified fashion. But if you follow the steps, it’ll be well worth your patience.

From here, you can confidently partake in marketing your brand, sell your clothes online, or display them proudly in stores. Jennifer Evans takes it upon herself to take all the time needed to perfect a piece of clothing, bringing your dream of starting your own clothing into reality.

How Does This Help Independent Designers?

Starting a clothing line can be a massive undertaking, one that can run into several obstacles. Pricing is one issue among many. The Evans Group allows designers on a budget to choose affordable pricing options, like 'The Test Drive.'

This development package contains the opportunity to meet with creative directors, project managers, and sourcing experts to create a few clothing samples. The 'Test Drive' can be an excellent way to dip your toe into the waters of starting a clothing line.

TEG has had an extensive list of clients and customers, each with its own unique story and brand to build upon. Many designers started a clothing line with the help of TEG and the extensive services within.

For example, Independent designer Greg Lauren, with TEG's help, had his 'Made in L.A.' clothing line on sale in Banana Republic stores. Other fashion designers have the opportunity to launch their brands with the help of TEG. TEG also takes pride in producing clothing lines and building brands in a socially responsible and sustainable manner. Along with the central Los Angeles textile factory, TEG has a branch in San Francisco specializing in bridal couture, avant-garde, fashion, and more.

With The Evans Group, starting your own clothing line seems more like a reality than an unrealistic and challenging task. TEG can help fashion designers create their own clothing line in a big way.

About The Evans Group

The Evans Group, founded in 2005, is a full-service fashion development and production house based in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Since its inception, The Evans Group has worked with over 2,000 clothing brands and designers. The Evans Group prides itself on being one of the few fashion houses in the United States with unique skills and goals for independent fashion designers.
