Don't be so hard on yourself, South Africa

Delivering a true omnichannel experience: what you need to know
Lynette, a really interesting article. I liked your phrase "Omnichannel in a nutshell is one consistent and seamless experience across all channels". I think it perfectly reflects the main essence of this concept.Still, it's very difficult to navigate through a variety of channels. When I was growing my business, I didn't even think it required so much work. Fortunately, then I switched to the TreoPIM system. It is very convenient to create and manage channels there. More about this here: .Despite all the difficulties, exporting and publishing data through more channels really increases the popularity of the product and the level of sales.

Soil-dwelling worms threatening farmers' livelihoods
To say "Soil dwelling worms...." 1.) nematodes are not worms. 2.) If it were not for composting worms (eat decomposing organic matter) we would not have top soil. Adding Compost, and vermicompost (composting with worms) to the soil/s will help increase the SoM (soil organic matter) which will create an environment where beneficial micro organisms will crowd-out the parasitic nematodes. Not knowing all the facts regarding the planting of the potato crops mentioned in the article and based purely on the decline in yields, it needs to be asked what if any? rotational crops have been planted?

Olymp Trade: an easy way to earn money on financial markets for beginners and professionals
I agree with some reviews. The developer is constantly upgrading the platform. It is great! After adding the second screen, I can now trade by the correlation method, comparing two charts simultaneously. This is a very profitable strategy, especially when trading with cryptocurrencies!

How to maximise your ERP investment
Investment in an excellent ERP will without doubt deliver results far beyond the initial investment in the implementation and the ERP software. It all starts with a clearly defined set of objectives and long term benefits besides cost savings. The best implementations are designed with all of the reporting, key management information, ease of extracting the information, streamlining the business processes, and automation of the routine tasks. In this way the investment in the ERP system will yield huge returns on the investment made. One key activity when implementing a new ERP system is to ensure all users are suitably trained to use the system efficiently and effectively. Very often the training is poorly carried out and not thought of as part of the implementation of the new system. When implementing a new system automation of routine work should be part of the design and configuration. Manual work elimination should as also be part of the brief. In this way costs savings can be achieved while at the same time improving the control environment. In extreme cases, the number of clerical positions have been more than halved where the design and configuration of the ERP system together with the business processes have been combined to leverage the full capability. The long term results have been very beneficial to the organization. More importantly, customer invoices are processed accurately and correctly resulting in much fewer queries been raised and even better less reason for delaying payment and account follow up for collection from the customer. Same applies to the processing of supplier invoices resulting in fewer instances having to process and reconcile the supplier accounts and the account placed on hold due to non payment. Bank statement processing can largely be automated resulting in very little intervention. This is certainly the case where there are thousands of transactions a day.

How 'refirement' is reshaping senior housing
Exactly what my husband and I did. Only to discover the dire situation of sectional titles in South Africa. Trustees are managing properties and funds but they are unable to read a balance sheet and have never even managed within their own careers yet alone the responsibilities of a sectional title. So what was originally a decision which was meant to be financially savvy we now have grave reservations considering the risks. And the institutions like CSOS are scary. their skills and abilities in enforcing good governance is like other institutions in this country.The stats speak for themselves with regards sectional title health.

Olymp Trade: an easy way to earn money on financial markets for beginners and professionals
Olymp is one of the best brokers specializing in short-term trading! In addition to the options, there is a second platform for those who want to trade on the price difference. This allows you to avoid unnecessary risk when the profitability of selected couples decreases, but you do not want to risk. At first, it was unusual for me to choose the SL and TP levels in the deposit currency. You have to adjust the levels with the mouse. It is not difficult, I must say. The interface is amazingly user-friendly.

#BizTrends2019: Residential property trends
The property market as we know it as is continuously dynamic. There really isn't anything constant about it which we can truly expect or predict. Even if there is any, it won't be for long until pattern changes become visible and mobile again.

#BizTrends2019: Will 2019 be the turnaround for the economy and property market?
Obviously we look forward to it every single year in the forecast of demand and units. However, it really isn’t something that can be determined and put into place as and when desired. We can still have our expectations but eventually we have to apply whatever situation is being given to us.

#BizTrends2019: Flexible workspaces - the workplace revolution is coming
I personally prefer my own workspace as opposed to having to share with someone else even if it is a co-worker. I have worked independently at my own unit as my jobscope usually doesn't entail cohesive workload with peers. Thus, I don't see how I can adapt to a share workspace concept in the near future to come.

Olymp Trade: an easy way to earn money on financial markets for beginners and professionals
To all the newbies who would like to learn trading properly, I'd recommend 3 main things. First of all, learn the theory. Olymp Trade offers lots of materials on the basics of trading and analysis, as well as ready-made strategies. You can find all of this on their website and Youtube-channel. Besides that, the company provides free webinars, which is a great opportunity to not just actually learn the basics, but also talk to the instructors and ask them whatever is unclear to you. Secondly, you really need practice. For that aim, you've got a demo-account that is available free of charge. And finally, communication with the like-minded ones is crucial :) There's a cool community on Facebook, in Olymp Trade group. You can even win there some interesting prizes, like a risk-free order, simply by actively participating in discussions and suggesting your ideas.
