Ready for the green roof planning of the future with ZinCo and CADENAS

To ensure architects and planners a comfortable workflow for their construction projects, ZinCo GmbH now provides 3D BIM CAD models of its systems and products for roof greening in a 3D BIM CAD download portal based on CADENAS technology. At https://zinco.partcommunity.com, users can display ZinCo products as a preview, for example green roof systems, protection and storage mats as well as gravel retainers with a high level of development (LOD 350), including exact dimensions. Subsequently, architects and planners have the option to download free of charge the BIM data of ZinCo products in a generic presentation (generally LOD 200) in all common CAD formats. The BIM data can then be integrated directly into existing designs or planning in the resp. 2D or 3D CAD software. Additionally, there are data sheets on the 3D BIM CAD download portal of ZinCo systems and products in PDF format with information about material, dimensions, delivery units, etc.

Immense use of BIM

"BIM offers the potential in the future to increase project efficiency and quality," says ZinCo CEO Dieter Schenk. "The possibility of working on the same model with all those involved in the project makes the entire project coordination and communication easier for the planning offices. BIM will therefore be an important instrument in the future – not only for large complex projects."

As a worldwide leading company, ZinCo was one of the first pioneers and driving forces for extensive and intensive roof greening. ZinCo’s research projects and innovative system developments inspire architects and sophisticated constructors for the holistic and sustainable planning of private building and large projects in public spaces.

Ecovis Sydney provides comprehensive start-up services to UK film company

Background

In November 2012 KEO Films, which had recently won a contract to produce an Australian version of a UK TV series, was put in contact with Ecovis Sydney, because they needed to get their footprint established urgently, before Christmas!

Issue

The key issues were:

  • What form should the Australian presence take?
  • While effectively a start-up in Australia, could they obtain bank debt funding for a commercial property they had identified for purchase?
  • How fast could all of this happen?
     

Solution

We quickly determined the most appropriate structure in which to combine asset protection, tax efficiency (in terms of their UK/Australia interaction) and manage their new Australian business.

This included a main trading company, an additional company in which to hold a primary production property, and a further company in which to hold the intellectual property that they expected to develop in Australia.

Within a few days we had:

  • established all three companies with ASIC (with David Conley as resident director for each), and had them registered for all necessary taxes with the ATO and OSR.
  • Through a referral to a local commercial lawyer, we ensured any necessary agreements between the three entities and the UK parent were being considered, to satisfy Australian/UK laws, as well as potential transfer pricing issues.
  • Through a referral to a local immigration agent, we ensured that the client was being advised on options for potential secondments of UK employees to Australia to assist in the local operations, and
  • through referral to several banks, we enabled the client to determine the best fit for their needs quickly, and they were able to purchase a commercial property with borrowed funds.
     

We subsequently provided ongoing tax, accounting and audit support for the Australian operations.

Currently

KEO Films enjoyed five years in Australian but for commercial reasons ceased operations in 2017 and reverted to a license arrangement with local third-party producers.

asknet launches next Generation of its powerful Full-Service eCommerce Shop System

asknet AG, part of the Swiss-listed international technology and media company The Native SA (www.thenative.ch), has launched its next generation platform of the asknet eCommerce Suite. asknet offers a world-class and full-service eCommerce solution to manufactures around the globe, selling their products in over 190 countries. The next generation platform features numerous innovations for the shop architecture and for existing functions, including a fully responsive web design that delivers an unparalleled user experience across all devices, from mobile to desktop PCs.

The highly responsive and optimized cross-device shopping interface and experience not only increases a customer’s in-shopping engagement but also allows for seamless device-dependent cross-selling displays. The combination of these features results in higher conversion rates and drives increased average order values.

The new responsive customer shops can be implemented at a fraction of the time formerly required, enabling customers to generate global online sales much faster – and with perfected usability and agility. Moreover, asknet customers now benefit from the option to make real-time changes to their shop settings, such as the adaptation of style elements, to rapidly address their evolving needs and demands.

The migration of old shops to the new platform has also been considerably facilitated and accelerated. All shops currently deployed under older versions will be migrated in the coming months. As updates under the new shop generation are executed automatically and frequently across all shops, effort is substantially reduced in ongoing operations. Overall, the shorter setup times and enhanced operations will free up considerable internal resources.

Noel Kienzle, Head of Technical Product Management: “With our new shop generation we introduce a modern, optimized standard that ideally meets our customers’ current needs and permits an enhanced implementation of projects while meeting all standard requirements for optimum display on different devices. Moreover, with this greater efficiency achieved, we have improved flexibility and greater resource allocation for deploying new development and customer projects.”

Additional backend extensions of the shop software are already being developed and will further increase the attractiveness and competitiveness of the asknet eCommerce Suite.

With the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) fully enforceable, iGrafx is pleased to announce that it meets all of the newly established personal privacy requirements.

“At iGrafx, we recognize and value the privacy of our employees, customers and partners. We are upfront about personal data we collect, why it is collected, what we do with the information and the rights individuals have with respect to their information,” said Jamey Heinze, Chief Marketing Officer at iGrafx. “Since May 25th, the processing of all personal data has adhered to all GDPR requirements, and the processes are publicly documented in our Privacy Policy.”

A Customer Centric Solution

With more than 204 pages included in the GDPR law, including twelve distinct Data Subject rights, and incredibly high penalties for non-compliance, iGrafx recognized the challenge of becoming and staying compliant, and launched a GDPR Suite for large enterprises on March 26th, 2018. The comprehensive solution enables customers to assess risk from the perspective of their operational processes, seeing precisely where Data Subject’s personal information intersects with day-to-day business operations.

“Some of the biggest concerns among enterprises involve connecting the dots between data stored across different parts of an organization, as well as knowing all the data a company has and where it came from,” said Ed Maddock, Chief Technology officer at iGrafx. “Providing a window see where data originates and how it intersects with cross functional business processes is exactly what we do,”

CELUM named a „Strong Performer“ in Digital Asset Management for Customer Experience by Independent Research Firm

CELUM, leading manufacturer and distributor of Digital Asset Management (DAM), was named a Strong Performer among the 13 most significant DAM vendors, according to the Forrester Research report: “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Asset Management For Customer Experience, Q2 2018”.

“Linz, Austria-based CELUM has solid capabilities in library services and strong scalability, according to reference customers. It also has superior support for content localization, which is attractive in regard to its focus on the multilingual DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region”, states the Forrester Research report about CELUM. ”CELUM also receives high marks from customers on usability” and “[…] it supports complex workflows …”, the report also states. “CELUM is a good choice for European companies that require strong multilingual support and a good user interface […]” the analysts write in the CELUM vendor profile.

According to Forrester Research, brands are now media organizations, based on the amount of content they create, the audiences they deliver it to, and the stories they tell to connect with customers. The increase in content continues, as 86% of brand marketers continue to invest in content development. Not only that, but buyers increasingly prefer rich media content like images and video to get their information — infographics and videos ranked among the top five types of content that B2B buyers like to consume. Therefore, brands need digital asset management because it helps companies scale content creation. Most in-house creative teams are small; 54% of those teams have between one and 10 people. So being able to scale content with limited resources is key. DAM vendors have responded with more focus on templatized assets and additional support for content localization, the analysts of Forrester Research state. Furthermore, while DAM is a mature technology, it’s having a renaissance as more companies realize they need to get a handle on the expensive rich media content they create.

Michael Kraeftner, CELUM CEO: "We believe the current Wave for DAM from Forrester Research confirms our position as one of the innovative companies in the Digital Asset Management space. Apart from other evaluated vendors, we think our independence from external stakeholders is a clear advantage and so we can spend more than 60% of our revenue in research % development for the continuous improvement of our solutions.”

Join CELUM´s upcoming webinar with guest speaker, Forrester Research senior analyst Nick Barber: DAM Trends Drive Content Creation and Distribution at Scale. In this webinar led by Forrester analyst and content expert Nick Barber, you will learn about DAM trends including artificial intelligence, analytics, video, and content atomization and then how to apply those trends to scale your content to create an enhanced customer experience. Please register for the complimentary webinar here.

Spart Zeit: 3M Scotch-Brite Clean & Shine Maschinenpad

Reinigen und Polieren in nur einem Schritt? Mit dem neuen Scotch-Brite Clean & Shine Maschinenpad von 3M wird die Bodenpflege jetzt viel einfacher. Denn das praktische 2-in-1 Pad beseitigt selbst hartnäckigen Schmutz schnell und mühelos und verbessert gleichzeitig von Anwendung zu Anwendung den Glanz des Bodens – ohne zusätzliches Polieren und ohne Chemie. Das schont die Umwelt und spart Zeit.

Das 3M Scotch-Brite Clean & Shine Maschinenpad geht neue Wege in der Bodenreinigung: In nur einem Arbeitsgang wird der Boden gereinigt und auch poliert. Mit jedem Einsatz nimmt der Bodenglanz zu, so dass weniger oder gar nicht mehr poliert werden muss. Für den Anwender heißt das: weniger Aufwand, weniger Ausrüstung und geringere Kosten. Denn statt zwei verschiedenen Maschinenpads, müssen sie nur ein Bodenreinigungspad einsetzen.

Schnellere Reinigung ohne Chemie
Mit dem Scotch-Brite Clean & Shine Maschinenpad entfällt nicht nur der zeitintensive Vorgang des Polierens, das 2-in-1-Pad beseitigt auch Verschmutzungen bis zu 3-mal schneller als herkömmliche Reinigungspads. Dank einer neuen einzigartigen Schleifkorntechnologie von 3M ist zusätzliches Reinigungsmittel dabei nicht erforderlich, Wasser allein reicht aus. Hinzu kommt: Das Maschinenpad ist beidseitig einsetzbar. Dadurch hat es eine besonders lange Lebensdauer – ein Pad reicht für eine Fläche von mindestens 20.000 qm.

Geeignet für die tägliche Anwendung
Das Scotch-Brite Maschinenpad ist in unterschiedlichen Größen im praktischen 5er-Pack erhältlich. Das Pad ist passend für alle gängigen Reinigungsautomaten und erzielt selbst bei niedriger Geschwindigkeit optimale Ergebnisse. Es eignet sich besonders gut für die tägliche Reinigung von beschichtetem Stein, Vinyl, Marmor oder Flexfliesen. Besonders praktisch: Ein Farbindikator zeigt dem Anwender an, wann das Pad gewechselt werden sollte.

3M und Scotch-Brite sind Marken der 3M Company.
