Ray Atkinson Addresses Common, Crippling ERP Mistakes Today in New Book

Australia (PRWEB) October 03, 2013

Ray Atkinson provides insights born of extensive experience to senior executives and business owners who are implementing or who have failed to implement ERP into their organizations in his debut book titled Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) The Great Gamble. With numerous organizations still ill-equipped to make the most out of ERP, the author, with over 35 years of teaching, operating and consulting in ERP technology, puts forward 26 fundamental steps, enabling executives to take action to prevent huge spending disasters and epic failures resulting from inept ERP implementation.

A proven and time-tested software, ERP is a centralized tool that allows organizations efficient and cost-effective control over all departments of the business. It uses a state-of-the-art system of integrated applications to monitor, manage and maintain the internal operations of a company. Integrating all business departments and functions into a single computer system, it provides real-time information for planning and decision-making.

As with all enterprise system software, however, ERP has its own downside. It has proven very difficult to implement owing to the impact on the business environment and complex technical jargon that confuses and constrains, as well as inducing companies to spend huge sums of money for poor outcomes. As a result, many executives put themselves and their companies at serious risk.

This is where Atkinson comes in: he simplifies things and spots botched patterns that a large majority fall victim to. In this book, he shows organizations the risks and the traps in dealing with ERP software vendors and reveals how to approach an ERP project from a wholistic corporate perspective, instead of viewing it as just a technology solution. Thus, readers will gain a better insight into ERP and the industry through 26 crucial steps designed to implement this technology effectively while keeping damaging cost blowouts at bay.

Written in layman’s terms that is, avoiding technical terms where possible and in a short format that can be read during a one-hour plane trip, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) The Great Gamble divulges to executives what they need to understand before embarking on or during an ERP project.

Lighting Retrofit Provides Safety & Savings for YMCA Swimmers

Boise, ID (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

The YMCA of Boise, ID, has recently upgraded the lighting system in their Aquatics Center. Aquatics Director Mike Kapuscinski discussed the importance of the enhancement for his facility with Global Energy & Lighting.

As the Director, Kapuscinski teaches swim classes, supervises lifeguards, and oversees the safety of YMCA programs, staff, and patrons. The YMCA is continually looking for ways to save on energy costs, and it is his responsibility to ensure the pool lighting is both energy-efficient and safe.

To demonstrate the need for effectual lighting of a large indoor pool, Mr. Kapuscinski explained a test routinely used to evaluate on-duty lifeguards. During operational hours, without notifying any personnel, an object similar in size and shape to a hockey puck is discreetly placed in the water. The on-duty lifeguards must notice the puck within a few moments of its placement and act to retrieve it. However, due to an occurrence known as blind spots, this test proved difficult for lifeguards at the facility.

Blind spots are small areas of the pool where visibility is obscured by dim light at the bottom and bright light reflection on the surface. Variations in light output from the old lamps made dramatic differences in visibility depending on where one stood. Mr. Kapuscinski commented, Before the retrofit the pool had several blind spots, each of which required lifeguards to dedicate a significant amount of time checking and re-checking from different angles.

Because blind spots made it difficult to recognize a drowning swimmer, lifeguards were forced to devote an unbalanced amount of attention to them, leaving the rest of the pool less adequately observed.

With the new illumination from Global Energy & Lighting, the blind spots that once plagued the pool are gone. Pucks used in the lifeguard tests are easily recognizable from the poolside or tower. Additionally, because the retrofit kits provide projected lifetimes of 50k+ hours, with only 10% light variance over that lifetime, the retrofit effectively eliminated light variance over the pool.

In total, the YMCA replaced the 400-watt metal-halide systems with 140-watt CeramaTek kits, cutting annual energy costs by 67%, and reducing carbon emissions by 1.3 tons. With the retrofit complete, the YMCA is on track to achieve a 1.8-year return on their investment.

The YMCA has always cultivated a socially active and environmentally conscious image. Through this lighting retrofit they continue to set an example to businesses and communities for sustainability and efficiency, while also demonstrating their commitment to the safety of their patrons. Global Energy & Lighting is proud to help the YMCA achieve safety and sustainability, both in business and recreation.

Vivogrow Herb Pot: Plant-Driven Technology To Meet Growing Global Demand For Self-Grown Herbs

(PRWEB) February 11, 2015

Built with the same technology that has the endorsements of both the Malaysian and South African governments, Vivogrow Herb Pot is set to penetrate the US, Canada, UK and EU markets.

The Vivogrow Herb Pot, uses this plant-driven technology to allow users to grow their own herbs without much skill and effort.

Plant-driven technology means that the plant regulates its self-watering process, on demand. The technology will ensure that it always gets the right amount of water and there is no over or under watering.

This effectively means that the Vivogrow Herb Pot enables optimum growth of any type of plant unlike other traditional self-watering systems.

The Vivogrow Herb Pot does not use any batteries, power or electricity. It is an efficient closed loop system where no water or nutrients is wasted or recycled. It can be left unattended for up to a week or longer.

This technology has already been introduced in Malaysia, a country with deep agricultural roots. Following the success of its RM37 million pioneer farm in Pahang, which uses such technology, Najib bin Razak, the prime minister of Malaysia has in recent times launched four more farms with plans to have such farms in each of the 14 states in Malaysia. South African president Jacob Zuma also has similar farm projects to be rolled out all across South Africa.

Other successful large scale projects include Spring City Golf Resort in China (voted 2014 US Golf Digest Worlds Top 100 Golf Course) and Australias Flemington Racecourse.

People are looking to grow their own food these days. The Vivogrow Herb Pot makes things simple and easy. The system is pretty much automatic. You just provide sunlight, nutrients and water and the technology will take care of the rest. said Vincent Ng, founder.

There is no daily watering. You can start harvesting your fresh herbs immediately if you transplant them into the Vivogrow Herb Pot. You can also grow healthy sprouts or harvest a pot of lettuce every week with our recommended quick start guides.

The Vivogrow Herb Pot launches in Feb 2015. Visit http://www.vivogrow.com/herb-pot/ to learn more.

Tech Pro Technology Development Limited to provide direct sales option for individual consumers

(PRWEB UK) 7 February 2015

Leading international manufacturer of LED products including interior LED lights, outdoor LED lights, LED street lights, LED commercial lights, LEDUS, has announced its decision to provide direct sales to the consumer as well as continue its already significant and successful retail operation for businesses and government departments.

Tech Pro Technology Development Limited manufactures and distributes a huge variety of LED products under the LEDUS brand. The products are designed to provide a green solution for both indoor and outdoor lighting requirements. LEDUS Products are used in street lighting projects as well as a variety of industrial, commercial and residential applications. Tech Pro is proud of its ability to offer its range of products that can help to reduce power requirements by up to 80%, which not only means significant savings but helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The companys expansion into direct consumer sales has been built on its already well proven track record as a major supplier of its LEDUS products direct to businesses and a number of government projects across Europe. The company has been successful in supplying at least two local councils in Spain, for instance, with its street lighting products. The Spanish street lighting contract is projected to run for at least 16 years. Other major projects include car park lighting in Spain and Portugal and apartment block lighting in Malaysia.

LEDUS is looking to take advantage of the UK Governments serious commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions over the next few years and believes that by offering its superior energy saving products it will help to achieve these goals. The Governments subsidy scheme for new build homes in the UK also means that the companys LEDUS brand indoor lighting products can offer a significant reduction in both household energy bills as well as help to address the emissions reduction target.

The company will soon have a showroom for its products in Westminster, in the heart of London, and it is planned to have a major online sales option for the individual retail consumer.

Tech Pro is listed on the stock exchange and has gradually expanded its manufacturing bases as well as its R and D centres since the company was first established. By manufacturing and selling its own products it can cut out the middleman and provide significant savings in the cost of its quality LEDUS products to all potential customers, both commercial and residential.
