It used to be the case before mobile phones became so popular that international calls were made from landlines. Many telecommunication companies provided packages which meant that the cost of phoning abroad was attractive to their customers.
Since mobile phones have overtaken landlines in the telecommunication stakes, it is most likely that phoning internationally will only become more popular with mobile users. At the moment it can still be quite expensive to phone internationally from a mobile phone.
You will be able to find some smaller companies that offer cheap packages that allow you to make international calls from mobile phones. This usually involves purchasing a phone card with a unique code which allows you to call abroad at a set rate per minute. (more...)
Searching for a job can be unnerving and often frustrating if no useful leads come your way. Is your inbox bombarded with emails from online job search engines full of useless job openings? If yes, it is time to read the job search checklist. This list is to help you make sure you’re doing everything in your power to get the right job.
Point number one on the checklist is the plan. Do you have a plan? If not, make one! Finding a job is a project, and any project requires a master plan so that it doesn’t go haywire. Have a clear idea of the kind of job you want, and the kind of place you want to work at.
Second, meeting and talking to people. Networking may sounds like a fancy buzz word, but it is a legitimate way of getting doors to open for you. Say you are interested in telecom jobs it would not hurt to talk to the friend of a friend who works at a telecom company. This may not be only step you take towards getting a job, but it certainly can be one.
Have you used all the resources available to you? There are plenty of places to look for jobs. This includes job search websites, local classifieds, job centres. If you’re interested in a particular position, write to the company directly. There is no harm in trying. (more...)
We all pay for our telecommunications. The cost of phone calls and BT Broadband are a part of our daily lives and, for this reason, we tend not to give this kind of bill much thought.
However, it is possible that you are shelling out more than you need to in the name of telecoms. With a little thought and analysis, and a few simple changes, you might be able to save yourself, or your business, a considerable amount of money.
To begin with, you should assess your telecommunication needs. Consumers are regularly bombarded by enthusiastic salespeople attempting to push an unnecessary product and the chances are that you've picked up a needless bill somewhere along the line. If this is the case, take immediate steps to get rid of the excess cost. (more...)
An important piece of equipment for a business is a phone. The cost for a business phone system depends on the size of the system and the features the phone have to offer. The features of the phone system bring value to any business. However you will need to decide which feature will best suite your business.
A business telephone system includes some common features. Here is a list of options you can choose from. The auto attendant option usually takes the place of a receptionist. It presents the caller with a list of options. For instance press 4 to talk to someone in the sales department. There are the conference call features which feature the option of allowing two or more extensions to share a call. In this case, they connect to each other and share the conversation. In addition, there is the automated directory feature which allows the caller to check the employee’s extension by simply entering the first few letters of their name and there is also the voice mail option which allows messages to be left for the person who is unavailable or busy. However, there are phone systems which allow separate voice mail equipment for a third party.
There are also other features such as the call hold features. This feature put the caller on hold while the user talks and attends to other matters. There is also the call forwarding feature. This feature gives the user the chance to forward calls to another extension in the business or temporarily to a voice mail. In addition, you can enjoy the feature of the speed dial. This feature saves you time. It allows you to call numbers which you frequently use. (more...)
Every business processes a certain amount of phone calls on a daily basis. This is a fact and something that every receptionist cannot neglect or ignore. Businesses are dependable on their telephone systems but what many businesses fail to realize is that they can harm or improve their image professionalism through the proper or improper usage of their telephone system.
It does not matter how small or large a company is, communication is the key to its success and should therefore not be neglected. Many business owners think that they do not need all the business related features of a telephone system. They believe that they just need a system to make and receive phone calls. Features like caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, conference calls, automated attendants, call screening and voicemail capabilities are not needed in their businesses.
Business owners who think like this do not realize that the above mentioned features can improve their professionalism. It does not matter how small they are as long as they present a professional image, they will increase their sale. The fact is that the sole purpose of a business is to provide their customers with products and services that they need; however, in order for customers to purchase these products and services, they need to be satisfied. If they are not satisfied with the products and services they receive from one company, they will be highly inclined to take their money elsewhere. (more...)
Many businesses have begun to take advantage of using virtual London phone numbers. One of the top reasons for this is that no matter where the business is actually located, they can be seen by their customers at being centered in London. This can be important when their consumer base consists of mainly the London area. Customers can feel more trust and closeness with a business if they consider them to be more local by utilizing the 0203 prefix.
Having a virtual London phone number can allow the business executive a lot of choices as to where they choose to actually receive their calls. Using a business such as http://www.dbs-uk.co.uk/ will let the businessperson the chance to have their calls directed straight towards their land line where they are conducting business. Also, if it is required, a person can receive their 0203 calls on their mobile allowing them to conduct work anywhere. There are no extra charges for changing where the calls are directed.
Another possibility for directing calls with the 0203 number is being directed to a Skype or VOIP location. This allows customers to get the information they need in the most comfortable way possible. They are able to see the person that they are dealing with, and reach them no matter where they are – even though the number shows up as London area based. (more...)
Gone are the days when enterprise planning was hidden behind the firewalls within the premises of the organisation. With the rapid growth of internet technology, high bandwidth is not a problem any more thus giving a new dimension to the concept of cloud computing. Today, the most important data are stored as well as accessed from outside the business organisations. World has transformed itself into a global village thereby spreading the boundaries of organisations across several countries and various locations.
Interoperability is the new buzzword taking over the organisations. Most of the big industries such as capital facilities, hosting services, e-retailing are highly fragmented across several regions and if the engineers, contractors, suppliers, operators, architects segregated from each other couldn't have access to updated data, the industry is going to drown. The value and requirement of data has changed with a location attribute giving a new contextual meaning to it. Having a look at http://www.mclarensoftware.com/, you could understand the model of cloud computing developed and used by several industries across the world.
Location data captured and transmitted through satellite remote sensing systems gives a competitive superiority to any organisation heavily relying on its applications. Time variable and space variable is using the contextual data to help enterprises in taking decisions dependent on situational scenarios to promote timely action. Enterprises are deploying business intelligence systems which are best utilized by the facilities provided by cloud based remote servers. (more...)

to forecasting centres and ships at sea.
We have longer experience in the field of creating useful marine products
from raw satellite data than any company in Europe, and this is reflected
in the number of Training Workshops it has been asked to organise around

remain ignorant of the increasingly relevant role of satellite surveillance
to its operations.
Several satellites measure the height of waves at the
sea surface. We archive these and windspeed measurements in the
database. This then used to provide high quality marine statistics
Transporting a 33000 ton semi-submersible safely from
Canada to Brazil depends critically on making the best use of whatever
information is available on sea-state. We worked closely with DockTell
