Technology Enhances Wine, Spirits and Beer Labels

Technology Enhances Wine, Spirits and Beer Labels

TECHNOLOGY
What's the purpose of a wine label; or for that matter a label on spirits and beer? Obviously, the first response to that question is: to satisfy the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) regulations. Once that is accomplished, the label space remaining may be used for branding and marketing copy. The fact is, there is very little space on bottle labels to get creative with messages. Now technology is helping solve the limited space on labels by way of RFID (radio frequency identification/ID) technology. Tap a smartphone on an NFC (Near Field Communications) tag embedded on a bottle and see what comes up on your smartphone; assuming there is currently a tag on the label. Depending on a winery's budget and the number of smartphones enabled with RFID tag readers (newer smartphones ...
Alternative Financing

Alternative Financing

FINANCE
Alternative bank financing has significantly increased since 2008. In contrast to bank lenders, alternative lenders typically place greater importance on a business' growth potential, future revenues, and asset values rather than its historic profitability, balance sheet strength, or creditworthiness.

Factors are more focused on the receivables/collateral rather than the strength of the balance sheet. Factors lend funds up to a maximum of 80% of receivable value. Foreign receivabl...

AUTO
One of the largest crazes in the world is cars. We are not sure where this obsession comes from but since their invention, people have been obsessed with making autos faster, fancier and better than they are. The funny thing is that most individuals think about their autos as machines and leave it at that. This is different from one group of auto lovers. I am speaking specifically about VW auto lovers. I can think of no type of auto that is more obsessed over or fawned over than the VW auto. The Volkswagen has a following that is unmatched by any other brand of auto. This is because many VW lovers treat their cars as people so much in fact that they name their cars. When many VW owners discuss their VW auto they say he or she and describe them as if talking about an old friend. This is...

Impacts of Information Technology on Society in the New Century

TECHNOLOGY
In the past few decades, there has been a revolution in computing and communications, and all indications are that technological progress and use of information technology will continue at a rapid pace. Accompanying and supporting the dramatic increases in the power and use of new information technologies has been the declining cost of communications as a result of both technological improvements and increased competition.

Real Estate Leads For Realtors

Real Estate Leads For Realtors

REAL ESTATE
Because real estate prices have dropped quite a bit, the potential commissions that real estate agents and brokers could earn have also dropped. But the drop in commissions can be more than offset by the number of properties that can be sold. And getting quality real estate leads is one of the keys to making this a reality for real estate professionals. This is because there are so many more properties on the market now than there were before the bubble burst. The rise in the number of homeowners who are underwater on their mortgages has increased so much that a very large number of them have decided that they cannot afford to stay in their homes. They would rather sell their home and buy a comparable home for a much lower price and take the loss so that they can improve their cash flow s...

Everything You Need to Know About Auto Insurance

AUTO
Every auto owner must have auto insurance in order to drive their vehicle legally. You can get into serious trouble with the law if you do not have insurance in place and if someone hits you - or if you hit them - and auto insurance is not held by you or the other person, legal issues are not the only thing you will have to worry about.

Most insurance agencies have a 24-hour hotline for just the reason. If another person was involved, you will need to make sure their insurance is in force as well. The n...
