Selling Simplified Group, Inc. brings on IDG Veteran as Managing Director to open new Korea location

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 30 luglio 2019

Selling Simplified Group, Inc. (SSG) announced today the opening of their new Korea location, along with the appointment of Sung-il Kim as Managing Director for the region. Following the opening of their Hong Kong office earlier in July, the opening of the Korea location marks the company’s second APAC expansion this month and will be their sixth APAC location in total.SSG, a privately-held provider of proprietary B2B data and marketing solutions, specializes in demand generation and data enrichment services. Their extension into Korea takes place at a time of unprecedented growth for the company, particularly in APAC and North America, following multiple new software product releases and a transition to a subscription-based, SaaS company model.
Aimed at assisting marketers and sales teams in the digital age, SSG takes their role as a global player seriously—starting with their data. With APAC records accounting for over 25M of their 100M+ global B2B database, SSG has emerged as a leader in B2B marketing and data for the region. Paired with local support teams in Australia, Singapore, India, and Hong Kong, and support for local languages in both content and software interfaces, the company has developed a presence in the region which Kim deems “truly excellent.” Elaborating on his new role at the company, Kim said: “Being a part of SSG finally gives me the opportunity to share real innovation in lead generation whilst meeting my clients’ demands in ways that have not been possible for me in the past. SSG has been running campaigns successfully in the Korean market for a year now, and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers. It is my intention to build on that success by creating a truly localized operation dedicated to serving the needs of Korean marketers.” SSG’s CEO and founder, Michael Whife, also remarked on Kim’s appointment: “We are very excited to get Sung-il on board, as he is without a doubt the leading authority on lead generation in Korea. Having spent 13 years at IDG Korea building a local client base, he comes to SSG fully equipped to start introducing our advanced solutions and technology to a local market from day one. I expect his contributions to the company will greatly help to propel SSG as the number-one lead generation company in APAC.” Kim has already begun the process of signing on new business in the region, and is in the final stages of bringing on a Customer Success Manager dedicated to providing a highly-personalized experience for local customers. Whife expects the Korea location to be fully operational by the end of August.

Two Day Writing & Managing Effective SOPs Course

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 21 Maggio 2018

Course “Writing & Managing Effective SOPs” has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.Every biopharmaceutical company has SOPs, and new staff members are told that the company “has to have them” and that each employee “has to follow them”. But why do there have to be SOPs and why must we follow them as written? And how can we do this effectively?Most people naturally want to do a good job. Successful managers recognize this fact and seek to channel workers’ efforts in ways that will benefit the business. Well-written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) provide direction, improve communication, reduce training time, and improve work consistency. The purpose of an SOP is to provide detailed instructions on how to carry out a task so that any team member can carry out the task correctly every time. The SOP development process is an excellent way for managers, workers, and technical advisers to cooperate for everyone’s benefit. A very positive sense of teamwork arises when these parties work together toward common goals.Perhaps if everything always executed as planned then we would not need procedures, but this is not the case in the real world. An SOP or Standard Operating Procedure is used to ensure business processes are well thought through, that each task in a process is performed the same way every time, and important data is recorded, along with errors or deviations so corrective action can be taken. Standard Operating Procedures used in combination with planned training and regular performance feedback lead to an effective and motivated workforce. Managers and advisers benefit from consistent work performance and predictable results. Workers benefit from increased confidence and a clear sense of achievement.Producing a high-quality product at a profit depends on the consistent operation of all systems within the company. SOPs describe the basic systems shared by all company employees. Company success depends on how well these systems work together to produce large volumes of high-quality product that is safe and effective for patients and consumers.Good procedures and work instructions provide a way to communicate and apply consistent standards and practices within your organization.

The graduate in business administration and father of two children will be responsible for the Sales and Marketing divisions and driving both product development and international business forward.Schwarz was co-founder of Setlog GmbH, a Bochum based company which focussed on the development of an SCM system for the fashion sector, where he was managing director and shareholder for over twelve years. His customers included Zalando, Intersport, Tom Tailor, Katag, Brax and Betty Barclay. Schwarz then spent just under two years as Chief Operating Officer at the Wünsche Group, an international trading house with its headquarters in Hamburg and over 25 subsidiaries. There, amongst other things, he was responsible for strategic restructuring and change management. Schwarz has most recently been advising well-known customers in the clothing industry with his consulting company imc-efficient on how to optimise delivery chains and integrate IT landscapes. “With his broad and specific expertise, as well as his experience of 20 years in the IT business for the fashion sector, Schwarz will be a perfect complement to our management team”, explains Klaus Weber, founder and proprietor of INTEX. Torsten Schwarz is coming to Saarbrücken just at a time when Intex is developing the 4th generation of its software, which has already been completed to 90 percent and is in productive use at three long-standing customers. The application was developed by a new team put made up of experienced programmers and “old hands” with many years of expertise in fashion, headed by Dennis Weber. The internet and cloud-based solution will be a new milestone in Intex’s history and will point the way into the future. “It can’t only be adapted to the customer’s specifications significantly faster, but it also contains a number of new modules”, announces Dennis Weber with some pride. Thus, in addition to the comprehensive ERP system specialised for the clothing sector, all PLM/PDM functions that customers both need and expect are immediately available. A large proportion of added features in the fields of acquisition, SCM, CSR and RFID have also been integrated and plan to be extended with Torsten Schwarz. “For the first time, the fashion industry will have with this a fully integrated solution at its disposal, which will map the entire supply chain in dedicated cockpits and enable interconnected thought and action in the spirit of industry 4.0”, Schwarz explains before adding, “the customers will love it!”.At the Texprocess 2017, taking place in Frankfurt am Main from 9th to 12th May 2017, Intext will be officially introducing and comprehensively explaining the software to the motto of “Move fast. Be flexible.” Interested parties can already make an appointment for a personal consultation. (photo: Torsten Schwarz, Klaus Weber)

European businesses

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 luglio 2011

London Research published by Ricoh Europe reveals that European businesses could be missing out on potential profit increases of €46 billion, due to the existing, inefficient methods used to process information. TheRicoh Process Efficiency Index shows that employees across Europe responsible for managing business critical document processes spend approximately 362 million hours of their time per year on the function, which amounts to an overall business cost of €147 billion. The Index examines how European organisations are managing their business critical document processes; those that occur regularly and repeatedly and have a direct impact upon businesses interactions with clients and employees. For example, purchase orders, patient records or invoices. The study also identifies the areas for improvement and the economic return that those improvements could deliver.
Carsten Bruhn, Executive Vice President, Ricoh Europe said: “This report is essential reading for every European CIO. It highlights that if European businesses are to meet the challenge of competing with emerging markets, it is essential that they look at the efficiency of their business critical document processes.” Despite the significant time and investment processing business critical documents, European businesses overwhelmingly acknowledge that there is still room for improvement. Respondents said that their top three priorities are to increase knowledge sharing (67 per cent), improve security (67 per cent) and drive workforce effectiveness (65 per cent). The main barriers to making these improvements are lack of time (45 per cent) and lack of resources (35 per cent). The Index also reveals that European businesses are often reluctant to adopt time saving initiatives, such as outsourcing, due to security concerns. However, one in 12 European businesses revealed that their existing security procedures do not protect confidential documents with 36 per cent admitting that either they themselves, or their staff, have lost or misplaced important information. Despite available technology advances, the Index shows that many document processes are unnecessarily labour intensive and manual. 43 per cent of all business critical document processes rely on hard copy data and only 22 per cent of respondents reported that their organisation utilised a fully automated workflow.
