Phone System Technology – Business VoIP

In this article we’ll discuss new business phone system technology solutions built around VoIP and advantages for New Jersey businesses. We’ll focus on two popular solutions in particular: hosted phone solutions and traditional IP PBX phone systems.

A Hosted Phone System is very attractive in the right environment. You’re only responsibility is buying or renting the individual phones. The “soft switch” is hosted off site. This seems to have the most economic impact under 20 users. It can bring a lot of features and flexibility without adding additional costs. You’re getting large phone system features at a fraction of the cost. It’s truly a win-win in the right setting.

An IP PBX Phone System is more of a traditional model, the same concept but very different in its architecture. It’s now a server in the rack. Most companies are already accustomed to buying, leasing or renting their phone system. You’re on the hook and responsible for system maintenance and software upgrades. Software upgrades are a new concept we need to accept with the IP based PBX. It’s typically more of an initial investment, although new designs with targeted solutions can be cost justified quickly with the correct implementation as its feature rich design offers many “inside the box” attributes. In most cases this type of solution makes the most sense in an environment over 20 users.

Cost Savings – New phone system technology offers the ability to utilize VoIP lines/trunks. By switching from traditional analog phone lines to VoIP, or commonly known as SIP trunks, businesses can see immediate savings. SIP trunks are delivered through the internet. Most of these calling plans offer either unlimited calling or enough built in minutes that it’s a cost effective change. SIP trunks also offer features that analog trunks don’t.

Flexibility – Whether it’s a hosted phone solution or a traditional IP PBX phone system, both give businesses the flexibility to grow their organizations beyond the boundaries of standard technology. Adding remote employees is cost effective, the ability to activate inbound and outbound calling features via the web along with the use of desktop interfaces all add to the attractive nature of new technology.

Disaster Recovery – SIP trunks offer a dynamic disaster recovery feature that is very costly in a traditional phone system model. You’re now able to quickly and easily redirect calls from a web portal in the event of a power or system failure.

Phone System Manufacturers offer similar features however some deliver these features better than others. Obviously a system that’s reliable, easy to maintain, easy to use and easy to make changes to would be highly rated by both the end user and the vendor. Current research and development is focused on these VoIP offerings. Very little attention is placed on the standard phone systems as technology feeds itself and kicks into high gear.

Requirements – The main requirements for a successful VoIP implementation are related to bandwidth and Quality of Service (QoS). If you’re using the public internet, there are occasional issues that need to be worked out with your internet service provider. Best case would be a managed circuit but it’s not always feasible due to cost control.

10 Digital Technology Businesses You Can Start Today – Part I

The following suggestions have probably been considered or attempted by others. However, the potential lies in your ability to capitalize on your clients not having the time to complete the tasks for themselves. In the case of the Digital Photo Album business, there are thousands of people who are very familiar with converting paper photos to digital files but only a handful really have the time to engage the process. Hence, potential clients! Next, be sure to seek business guidance! This can be hard at times considering the amount of books and tapes sold on the subject. Just remember to look for information from people who have a similar business model as yours.

(1.) Start a business converting family paper photo Albums to digital photo albums. If you have a computer and a scanner you’re ready to start. If you use a mac, get iPhoto from I start with this application because iPhoto has the most complete process I’ve seen with a very low learning curve. Plus after you have finished scanning in all the photos and cleaning them up, for an extra charge to your client if you decide to do so, you can layout a hard cover photo book in iPhoto, and send it directly to Apple to be printed and mailed to you or the client for very little expense. If you’re on a PC consider Picasa 2 by Google, online at for FREE. Did I say it was for FREE? I give a tutorial overview of Picasa on my site at in the free tutorials section. It works similar to iPhoto but without the service of going directly to a book format. Still, the learning curve is low and the software is free. Both of the above require minimal computer system configurations ($500 e-machine or $1,200 iMac ) and scanner/printers run about $80.00

2.) Start a business trouble-shooting and upgrading computer systems. Now this may seem high tech but it’s really not. When on service calls I only have my knowledge of the PC and the Mac, an external hard drive to backup the clients documents, (even if they said they have done so), some software to run some tests and a screw driver. Clients are literally 2 doors to your left or right, if they have a computer. In fact the easiest clients in the world to get are computer clients. People ALWAYS need help with their computers. Trust me, once you announce just to your family and friends that you now fix and upgrade computers, you’ll be busy from that moment on. Don’t know how to charge? Just look at the price list the “Geek Squad” has. They charge $200 to setup a home network, excluding equipment! It really only takes 30 minutes, if that, to setup a home network, so under bid them. I would charge a $100 and be on my way to my next stop in 20 minutes.

3.) Setup a business configuring and loading iPods with music and video. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of people with iPods that don’t use them or haven’t added music to them since their friend first put a few tracks on there for them. People WILL pay you to setup their iPod. What tools do you need? The know how and transportation to the client. Or, you can have them drop off their music, movies and their iPod to your home and charge a package fee or a per hour fee. When it comes to movies I have had people give me a couple of DVD’s and asked if I could get them onto their iPod. All you need is some DVD ripping software and a compressor software then transfer the files onto the iPod.

Where do you get your customers in your area? Advertise in the local online newspaper, post a flyer at Starbucks, tell a friend, who’ll tell a friend. Trust me, word will spread.
Once again, its not that people don’t have the technology to do these things, they just usually don’t want to take the time to get them done.

4.) Start a business creating forms for businesses. I know a guy who delivered a product to a client without an invoice detailing the exact amount of items to be delivered. An argument followed between the two regarding the amount. The person delivering the product wanted to keep the client so they just conceeded and brought the client more product at a loss to himself. A friend of mine let him know that all he needed was an invoice with his business logo and information on it with a carbon copy sheet attached. He had no idea as to how to do the above so he asked my friend to create the documents and get copies. My friend did so at a cost. There are a great many people who need all types of forms which can be downloaded from the internet and customized to fit the clients needs. What’s required? For this you don’t even need your own computer, use theirs! Google the type of form, download it, copy the text from it, bring it into MS Word and adjust! Or, depending on how complex it is, download a free trial version of photoshop and alter it there. Don’t know how to use photoshop, I have a great tutorial on my site that’ll get you up and running in no time.

5.) Create a Cell Phone Media business. On a flight to Atlanta I had a lady sitting next to me who decided to pitch me on a multilevel marketing product. I wasn’t interested in the product, but I was impressed that she had the promo video on her Treo cell phone. I asked her if everyone in the company had the same setup, she said no, her son had compressed the video to go on the phone. Now imagine your company that can take a corporate promo video and format it for the top PDA smartphones available on the market today! Most major corporations only use 1 type of phone but there are smaller companies with sales people that have the Treo, the Blackberry, the iPhone and other smartphones. Most phones can run either an Mpeg 4 (.mp4) video clip or a 3G compressed video clip. Download a free or very inexpensive video compressor like Movavi, ( and you’re ready to go.

In part 2 to this article I’ll give you 5 more businesses and I give you some more marketing ideas as to the promotion of your businesses using digital technology. In the meantime I sugggest you stop by and familiarize yourself with some other technologies that are available and how to implement them to accomplish everyday tasks in life.

Developing a Technology Business

A technology business, in today’s society, can be very successful. It seems like everywhere you look, all businesses use some sort of technology in order to complete their daily tasks. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bank, a coal mines, etc; all businesses use some sort of technology.

A technology business can help others to achieve their daily goals whether it is for personal reasons or for business reasons. But when developing a business along these lines, you must know what you are doing in all aspects to the form of technology business that you have opened, so that one believes that you are capable of handling their situation. When it comes to business operations and technology, trust plays an important role.

Professionalism is also a key factor. What if you were working for a company that had viable data that needed to be handled and if they couldn’t trust your company, you, or your employees to handle that? Professionalism, privacy, integrity, and more should at all times be maintained.

You will also need all of the tools, whether it’s machines or software programs, that will allow you to operate sufficiently and efficiently. You will want to offer your customers everything possible for the type of service or business that you are performing/conducting. For instance, just logging into a system to retrieve lost information is fine, but what if you could offer them more?

Opportunities in Russia For Energy and Technology Business

U.S. energy and technology businesses seeking new global markets should prepare to take advantage of new opportunities in Russia. A fresh start in U.S.-Russian political relations is dramatically improving the business climate. Russian economic reforms and the stabilization of the Russian economy has reduced the risk of doing business in Russia. Another factor is that Russia has become a nation of significant wealth because of oil and gas exports. Most importantly, Russia is about to invest in major new energy infrastructure that is a great opportunity for U.S energy and technology business.

A Fresh Start in US-Russian Relations
President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev issued a statement on March 31, 2009 about building the bond between Russia and the United States. President Medvedev made a strong statement about the need need for more investment projects, joint research and development by companies and increased trade in high tech products between America and Russia. President Obama has made clear that he is also interested in strengthening the bonds and trade between Russia and the United States.

President Medvedev and President Barack Obama met in London on April 1, 2009. A Joint Statement by President Obama and President Medvedev on April 1, 2009 stated that they had discussed ways to strengthen the international monetary and financial system and promote global economic stability and prosperity. The statement also emphasized the steps that both countries will take to improve international security, rule of law, and peaceful resolution of differences. This establishes a very good climate for American-Russia business.

Russian Economic Reforms
Key economic reforms have been implemented in the Russian tax, banking, labor and land codes. Russia has passed a new Foreign Investment Law that defines procedures for participation of foreign investors in the capital of Russian strategic sector companies. This new law will create a transparent and predictable business climate for foreign investors. Another significant measure to improve the business climate is that the Russian tariff rate has been set at zero % for the import of some types of technological equipment.

Past problems of doing business in Russia have been reduced for two significant reasons, according to the U.S. State Department. First, Russia has been preparing to join the World Trade Organization by bringing regulations and laws into compliance with internationally accepted business practices. America and Russia concluded a bilateral WTO accession agreement in late 2006. The second factor that has facilitated business transactions in Russia is the growth of small and medium sized businesses. As with most countries, businesses that are small and medium sized are often more innovative and less bureaucratic than big corporations.

Stability of Russian Economy
The Russian economy has greatly improved since the difficult times in the 1990s during the transition to a free market system. Inflation and exchange rates have stabilized due to good fiscal policy, according to the U.S. State Department. In the past nine years, the Russian GDP growth has averaged 7%. Since 2003, Russia has had a budget surplus and has established a large stabilization/rainy day fund ($156 billion in 2007). This kind of economic stability is very inviting for international business.

Russian Oil Exports
Russia is becoming a wealthy nation because of oil and gas exports, which have become the engine that drives the Russian economy. Russia is the world’s largest energy exporter now. Although America is the world’s largest importer of energy, only about 3% of US oil imports were from Russia in February 2009. With improved US-Russian relations, there is a more opportunity an increase in oil exports from Russia to America. The US government has been striving to reduce its dependence on the Middle East for oil and importing oil from Russia would support that goal.

U.S. businesses that want to import Russian oil can look online for Russian partners. The Russian firm OOOLIGA, founded In 2004, has an online ad stating that the company is agent of Gasprom, Rosfneft, Lukoil and other oil companies in Russia. OOLIGA sells rebco (Russian Export Blend Crude Oil), d-2, mazut, as well as numerous other products. Another Russian company is Sakhalin Energy, which promises to deliver oil and gas “profitably and in environmentally and socially responsible ways.” Sakhalin Energy sells d-2, mazut, rebco, lng, jetfuel, lpg, gasoline, m-100, and diesel oil. The Oao Yandgaz Group is another Russian company that is selling oil internationally. Oao Yandgaz states in its an ad that it is a major oil extracting Company that is looking build “strong and long-term business relationships with buyers of petroleum products in accordance with Russian law.” The Oaa Yandgaz Group sells base oil, bitumen, diesel, jet fuel, lng, lpg, mazut100, rebco, other petroleum products. These are just a few examples of the many Russian companies looking for business partners.

Energy Efficiency and Clean Energy Technologies
In the April 1, 2009 Joint Statement, President Obama and President Medvedev pledged to cooperate in improving energy efficiency and development of clean energy technologies. This cooperation will be based on the Global Energy Security Principles adopted at the G-8 Summit held in 2006 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Russia’s 2008 plan for implementing the St. Petersburg principles shows Russia’s commitment to expand electrical generation and distribution facilities in the next 10 years. They plan to double the total capacity of nuclear power plants and coal-fired plants. Hydroelectric power plant capacity will increase by 60% and gas generation plant capacity will increase by 40%. These massive infrastructure projects will be opportunities for American energy businesses. The projects will also be opportunities for U.S. companies that specialize in technology and products for energy efficiency and clean energy technology.

U.S.-Russian Energy and Technology Trade
These new developments in the Russian marketplace represent huge opportunities for American energy and technology businesses. Russia’s new wealth and economic stability provide an excellent environment for investment and trade. Russia has opened the doors for foreign technology businesses with new laws and zero tariff programs. Russia’s plan to make big investments in energy infrastructure will be significant opportunities for U.S. energy companies. All of these signs are extremely promising, and U.S. companies should be ready to take advantage of these opportunities.

The Keys To Starting An Information Technology Business

An information technology business can be a gold mine in the right hands, but IT is an extremely crowded field so you need to make sure that you take the right steps in order to make your business a success. That process begins with understanding the importance of IT and knowing how to properly position yourself within the market to make the best of your particular assets. If you can manage that, then the opportunities for success are almost limitless.

There are several key elements to starting an IT business and the first is recognizing the various aspects of IT and what they can bring to clients. Information is an extremely valuable commodity these days, so much so that entire social media networks are built almost every day with the primary goal of spreading information. The Internet itself is the penultimate resource for instant delivery of information and for not just local but global communication.

The IT expert is ideally positioned to make the most of these resources in order to help businesses become more productive and more profitable. Through your own information technology business you can provide the expertise necessary to manipulate social media, produce blogs, design websites and otherwise enable clients to market themselves to their best advantage and reach the widest possible group of potential customers, thus maximizing their profits.

As important as having a strong online presence is to a company, so too is having their own computer system running smoothly and efficiently. This is yet another area where an IT consultant can make a big difference. You can help your clients to put their own systems to better use and to keep existing systems functioning properly so that their business continues to run smoothly and everyone benefits in the end.

Once you understand your own importance in this cycle, you can then take the necessary steps to properly market your information technology business. As with your clients’ businesses, marketing is equally essential to yours and you need to not only identify potential opportunities but also position yourself to take the best advantage of them. Make yourself stand out by highlighting what makes you so much better than the competition and you’ll have clients seeking you out in no time.

Obviously staying on top of trends in technology is vital to being an effective IT consultant and that is another key to starting and maintaining a successful business. The more current your knowledge is, the more effective you’ll be at helping your clients to stay on top of those same trends. You’ll be giving them the competitive edge through your own expertise and that will make you someone that businesses know they can rely on for their IT needs.

Just because the field is a large one doesn’t mean you have to get lost in the crowd. With the right approach you can keep yourself head and shoulders above the rest and put your information technology business in the forefront. Then you’ll be able to sit back and watch the business opportunities multiply and the profits increase with them. It’s a win-win situation for everyone and it could very well be the start of an extremely successful career.

Chiropractor – A Health Care Invention

A chiropractor is defined as a health care device with a professional touch for the diagnosis and intensive treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Their emphasis is on neuromuscular disorders, especially spine.

Most of the chiropractors are used as a pain reliever for the patients. That is why it has been given the title of being an alternative medicine to the subjected treatment.

Calamine Lotion Benefits

Calamine lotion has been around for a long time and was always used in the medical environment. Obviously, it isn’t as strong as most antiseptic chemicals but it is a lotion that prevents itching.

Calamine lotion can be used for various treatments which include damaged and itchy skin. When skin gets damaged it will get itchy because the cells are breaking and tearing apart. It may sound painful but the itch is what really gets to you. And who can resist scratching an itch?

Coming into contact with poisonous plants is common when camping or spending the day in a garden. These are plants that use poison as a self defence mechanism to save themselves from being cut or eaten. It’s also important to know your allergies as some people may have allergic reactions to certain plants. The calamine lotion can help to soothe the burning feeling and prevents any breakouts at the same time. This will help heal the rash and infection quicker in a painless way.

Baby skin is very sensitive to most surfaces including their nappies. The calamine lotion can help to heal the nappy rash or anything of the sort without burning your child’s skin. Keeping the rash as soothed as possible will make your child more comfortable.

Insect bites are common in any area of the world. These bites could also be slightly poisonous (in certain cases) which causes itching and inflation on the skin. Applying calamine lotion to the bite will soothe the wound and assist with the process of ridding the body of the harmless poison. Please remember that certain insects can also be dangerously poisonous and you should be aware of which insects and spiders can harm you greatly. Most insects that have many bright colours are often associated with high toxic levels.

Calamine lotion also assists with stretch marks and broken skin that occurs during pregnancy. There is nothing worse than having discomfort during pregnancy especially if it could be treated or prevented. Adding calamine lotion to your broken and itchy skin relieves the surface of the discomfort.

You can also apply it to other skin problems such as acne, dryness, eczema, psoriasis and as a normal moisturiser to improve complexion and quality of skin.

Calamine lotion can be found in most stores or in bulk quantities at cash and carry wholesale stores. If skin problems continue after the use of any treatments, there is a chance that your body is unable to cure itself of the infection. In such cases you would need to consult a dermatologist to find out the cause of the problem.

Remove Unwanted Facial And Body Hair Using Laser Treatment

Removing unwanted hair is time-consuming and repetitive no matter what your preferred hair removal technique is, and whether you shave, pluck, wax, thread or use depilatory creams, the hair will always grow back. You’ll find the skin on your face is sensitive, and constantly using harsh hair removal treatments can cause a great deal of skin irritation.

All women have hair on the face, usually it’s fair and fine and is difficult to see, but those with darker hair are not so lucky. You will find that most of your female friends have the same issues when it comes to unwanted facial hair. The hair on the upper lip, chin, cheeks and sideburns can all be very embarrassing and cause you a great deal of insecurity. It seems that every time you think you’ve disposed of unwanted hair, you’ll find more of it sprouting up somewhere else, and even after you get rid of the hairs, they just grow back.

You can cover up your excess hair in areas that aren’t constantly exposed, but the hair on your face is always on display, and it can seem as though everyone is always looking at the hairs on your upper lip, chin or sideburns. A good way to get rid of unwanted hair is with laser hair removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:

It permanently reduces hair safely
It’s a fast treatment time
The results will boost your self-confidence
Prevents razor bumps and irritation
Laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort
Laser energy gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, and this laser energy is then converted to heat, causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding skin. This results in hair growth being stopped in the damaged follicle.
Generally for white skin you’ll need around 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and this usually results in 80% of hair removal. Darker or black skin may need around 8 treatments, resulting again in 80% of hair removed.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort; some may experience a minor stinging or pinching sensation on the skin as we deliver the laser pulses, but we can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments more comfortable.

Although we can perform laser hair removal treatment on white or black skin, lasers only work on hair which has pigment, because it absorbs the laser light and allows the heat to build up and diffuse throughout the follicle to destroy it. Therefore it’s not possible to treat white, grey, and blond hair by laser.
