This is of course a practical thing to do but there’s also a great probability here that you will end up doing more damage to the business. Cutting cost is always translated into laying off employees which can demoralize the efficiency of your manpower or it could be reducing production cost which will surely sacrifice the quality if not the quantity of your product output. In order to maximize efficiency and excellent service without facing any cost reduction, you have to find out more ways to do this.

A Scheduler System with a Tracker

By adopting the Dynamic Scheduling System, you will learn how to use the Geo-location information provided by a dynamic scheduler system in tracking down activities of your field service men.

Maximize Human Resource Efficiency

With the proper tool to provide you with the exact inputs as to the daily performance of your staff and field service men, you will be able to assign them to more sensible and relevant posts or functions.

Want to know if your employee is playing on the company’s budget? Here is an effective way to find out. Through the Dynamic Scheduling system, you will be encouraged to use a Locator Tracking Device necessary for the effective use of the System.

This is an effective measure if you are really considering cost reduction.

Identify Exact Travel Locations

With the tracking device, you can also be watchful on unscheduled travels or out of location travels by your employees which of course means additional wastage for the company. If you are aware of these things, then you can easily have your reasons to fire out immediately those undesirable employees trying to play their tricks on you and give more opportunities to those more serious and effective employees or workers to fill up your work force.

Don’t Invalidate Fire Insurance

Don’t invalidate your fire insurance policy.

I find this a very strange case but it just shows how important it is to read the small print as if you ignore the conditions of the policy your policy could be invalidated.

In this case it was a condition of the FIRE insurance that the SECURITY Alarm was maintained and monitored. Times had been tough for the insured and he let the maintenance of the security alarm lapse and as the ARC had not been paid for 6 months they stopped monitoring the site.

Vandals broke in and set fire to the factory. It was a furniture company and they incurred losses of over £750,000.

The case went to the High Court, the judge had nothing but sympathy for the Directors of the Company and he took ‘no pleasure’ in ruling that as it was a condition of the combined insurance policy that alarm was to be monitored by an external firm, the Insurers did not have to meet the claim.

There are often conditions attached to the insurance policies we take out which relate directly to the risk. We need to make sure our cars have valid MOTs in order not to invalidate the policy. We are required to notify the insurance company if we get a speeding fine but, to my mind oddly, you do not have to tell them if you decide to do the Speed Awareness Course rather than pay the fine.

I have just come across a case, now in front of the insurance Ombudsman, where an insurance company voided the policy and returned all the premiums because the policy holder had unwittingly exceed the value of the ‘valuables’ within their contents insurance. They had insured the contents of their house for £60,000 but there was a clause stating that the value of the valuables should not exceed 66% of this.

They had to rush their daughter to hospital, and while they were out the thieves struck taking goods and damaging the property to the value of £70,000. When assessing the claim the loss adjusters calculated that the value if the valuables in the house exceeded £40,000. Normally claims would be ‘averaged’ to reflect the under insurance, but the insurance company in this case argued that the under insurance voided the policy. As I said this case is in front of the ombudsman as I write.

Back to case in hand where a fire insurance claim was dismissed as a security alarm and monitoring were allowed to lapse. Clients of ours run a hotel and there is someone on reception all the time so if the fire alarm is activated there was always someone on duty to respond. We came round to the time when the annual contract with the ARC [monitoring station] needed to be renewed. The Hotel Manger wanted to cancel it as it was considered an unnecessary expense. I said I agreed but asked him to check with his insurers to make sure they had no objections. The Insurers confirmed; monitoring was a condition of the policy.

Often with in the insurance policy there is a clause that the fire alarm is maintained in accordance with British Standards. It would be interesting to know whether a similar claim has been dismissed as the Fire Alarm has not been adequately maintained.

The Truth Behind The Network Marketing Industry

The Multi Level Marketing (MLM) Industry popularly known as the Network Marketing industry, is indeed a very simple and profitable industry but sadly with a lot of negative feedback. The truth is that you can make a lot of money in the MLM industry. A lot of ordinary people have built businesses that provide passive income streams for them and their families and friends, who are in their network for life! The beauty about having a business that provide passive income streams is that you can get to enjoy life doing whatever you want or decide. All that is required is a few years of smart and dedicated work. Today though, this has been made a lot easier as some MLM companies have gone online. There is an MLM company today that operates entirely on an e-commerce platform! This means that you can reach more people using your website or social media to sell almost any product and to anyone anywhere in the world. The network marketing industry is a $167 billion industry churning out millions having huge passive income streams.

I am a partner with one MLM firm that is a 100% e-commerce based here in Nigeria. This means that I can actually do the business from home. With proper application of e-commerce concepts, you can indeed earn a stream of passive incomes for life! This is however not a get-rich-quick scheme. Success in the MLM industry entails following a set of professional guidelines and being consistent. Many people in the MLM industry fail to apply basic guidelines needed to start and grow their own MLM business. Many fail to realize that their MLM business should be handled as a real business where you will be required to recruit a team of people that believe in your mission and vision.

The network marketing industry is a 167 billion Dollar industry and about 91 million people are involved in the network marketing industry around the world today. The industry is now booming in the rest of the world because it is almost the only recession proof industry! During the economic recession that occurred in the world in 2008 and 2009 and the one before that in 1998, it was the only Industry that was growing. While other industries like the automobile and financial industries were either collapsing, downsizing on the number of employees or cutting down salaries, the network marketing industry was getting larger. This is why a lot of people have shifted to Network Marketing.

Even great men and thinkers are beginning to endorse the MLM business model. Bill Gates has been quoted saying that if he had another chance to start up, Microsoft would have adopted the network marketing model. Little wonder the Network marketing Industry continues to grow at an unexpected rate. This is especially true in the United States that recorded a growth from $13 billion in 1992 to over $132 billion in 2010; more than 82 million new people have joined the Network Marketing Industry in the past 20 years! In fact, it is now estimated that over 15,800,000 distributors in the United States alone now participate, full- or part-time, in Network Marketing-and these numbers continue to grow.

After 20 year, the Network Marketing Industry still fits today’s hot trends-home-based businesses, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance-and in Nigeria, the growth is beginning to catch up with the rest of the world. My articles continue to educate its readers how they too can move beyond economic security to economic prosperity by taking advantage of this wealth creating industry.

Feel free to find out if Network Marketing is right for you. Learn how to select a company, and how to begin your own home-based business, using the skills and resources you already possess because, after all, it’s still your future!

High Rate Loans – Pros and Cons

If you do not know the term “Pay Day” or its variations, consider yourself lucky. At least financially.

The term “Pay Day” is a euphemism. Let us first define it for what it really is.

Payday lending is a form of short-term lending without collateral to people with little or no liquidity, or a bad credit rating. Pay Day is a generic term. Companies in this form of lending go by other names, such as Cash and Go, Advance Pay, Loan Up and Cash Carry. Sometimes these are also called Accommodation Loans or Instant Cash.

Whatever the name, here is a statistic to show how prevalent they have become in a few short years (probably last ten years) in the US. There are some 22,000 companies in Pay Day business, making $40 billion in loans and collecting $6 billion in interest and fees. This number may already be dated, since more companies are coming on line.

REASON FOR PAY DAY POPULARITY

Here are the reasons:

As a business model, it is proven to be resilient and profitable. Diverse portfolio, small exposure, short term nature of the loan and catering to a sector few traditional lenders touch.
With Americans’ incomes not keeping pace with inflation, and increasing illegal immigration, there is growing need for Payday type loans as more and more people live from paycheck to paycheck.
While there is State level regulation on Payday practices, this form of lending is highly unregulated and as yet unchecked in any real form by Federal government. And State supervision is spotty. So no wonder new Payday type lenders are cropping up all over.
Because of small loans and not much oversight, entry barriers are low.

PROS AND CONS

Pros:

Easy terms, no collateral
Negative credit history is not an obstacle
Very local
Caters to a segment of population which has no other alternatives to cover their expenditures or budgets

Cons:

Very high rates of interest (although many States have Usury laws, so Payday lenders skirt it by calling these “fees” or “service charges”
Addictive. Since money is easily available, there is less incentive to save and forgo certain expenditures
Does not improve borrower’s credit history–whereas getting credit from a traditional source, even a store, and paying it down regularly will actually improve your credit rating and open up other doors to borrowing

WAYS TO AVOID PAYDAY

Get in the habit of budgeting your income and expenses and do it conservatively. This will help you manage your cash flow and enable you to predict it—that way you can find ways to either boost your income or reduce expenses. It also will help you to prioritize your expenses
Diligently note down your expenses
Try to put internal limits on when to use a credit card. I advised someone to not use a credit card for single-shop charges below $25. It is amazing how quickly she realized money was flowing through her hands. She never appreciated this when flashing credit cards, and making minimum payments.
Pay off all or most of credit card balance each month. Credit card companies are only a slightly softer version of Payday lenders.
I prefer loan from a friend or from family although I realize it is not always possible
Treat Payday as the absolute last resort, before bankruptcy. That will help you strengthen your resolve to avoid them as long as possible
Get Credit Counseling. Like someone who wants to lose weight must seek professional help, if you are unable to balance your checkbook, you need to see a professional financial advisor.
See if you have an asset that can be monetized. It may be jewelry you do not use or a house bigger than you can afford. This is the absolute first step to repairing your financial health.
