Bigtincan Meets All Capabilities in Gartner’s Market Guide for Sales Enablement for Third Year

[ad_1]

August 25, 2020 – Boston, MA – Bigtincan (ASX:BTH), the leader in sales enablement automation, today announced it has been recognized as a Representative Vendor of Sales Enablement Platforms in all of the capabilities defined by Gartner as part of the August 2020 Market Guide for Sales Enablement Platforms for the third consecutive year and listed for the 5th consecutive year.

According to the report, “COVID-19 initially caused an overall increase in purchase and adoption of sales enablement technology. This increased demand will persist, with sales enablement technology becoming a core tech stack purchase for organizations with both direct and partner channels.”

“Our clients are seeking new ways to help remote sellers and service professionals to adapt, learn, and engage their customers” said David Keane, Bigtincan co-founder and CEO. “We believe Gartner’s recognition confirms our ability to lead in today’s socio-economic environment and help people do their jobs despite the challenges.”

According to the report, “Gartner defines sales enablement platforms as tools that unite sales enablement functions with customer-facing sales execution. They predominantly support native content, sales training delivery and reinforcement, and sales coaching. They can be used for direct sales and indirect partner/channel enablement. The platform can include all three areas natively or use open APIs to connect to the complementary functions. If the latter, the relationship needs to be a selling relationship where integration has been prebuilt and data movement and sharing/synchronization is seamless between the applications to supply a better end-user experience. Sales enablement platforms also use APIs to support a wider array of functionality available via their ecosystems.”

BPSOCA Music Teams Up With UK Songwriters and Artists to Release Caribbean Music for the UK market

[ad_1]

London, England, August 21, 2020: BPSOCA Music, a new UK record label that works to elevate the Caribbean culture within the UK music industry, including Soca, Dancehall, and Reggaeton genres, this week announced they are partnering with UK producers, artists, and songwriters for upcoming releases.

BPSOCA Music recognize that street carnivals, such as Notting Hill Carnival, are the spotlight for Caribbean music and as such, they aim for their music artists to release music in time for the popular carnivals worldwide. BPSOCA Music is working hard to make a name for Caribbean culture in England today.

“For far too long, the music scene in England has been a homogenous collection of rock and pop hits that just don’t do anything for the Caribbean community,” said Gareth Sinnerine, Founder and Owner of BPSOCA Music. “Those of us here with Caribbean and African heritage deserve to have our music elevated and accessible for our communities. That’s what inspired us to partner with these musicians.”

With approximately 264,125 Caribbean-born citizens living in England and Wales, as well as 2,542 living in Scotland and 314 living in North Ireland, the Caribbean community has become increasingly influential in British society. Additionally, in a 2011 census, about 1.9 million people, or 3% of the UK population, said they identify as black/Caribbean/Afro-Caribbean.

“We are witnessing a worldwide movement that is shedding light on the need for inclusion and diversity in all aspects of society today,” said Sinnerine. “We believe that through our record label, we can make Caribbean culture a staple in the UK music industry moving forward. Caribbean music has been influencing the hits and singles we consume today for decades.”

Sinnerine also has an events company called BPSOCA Entertainment that showcases UK and International talent that will work in conjunction with BPSOCA Music.

The BPSOCA Music platform will officially launch this Friday August 20th for users everywhere. They are asking all Caribbean music producers and industry participants to contact them for continued musical development and releases.

About BPSOCA Music

BPSOCA Music is a subsidiary of Bacchanal Promotions Limited, with a focus on Caribbean artists, producers, and songwriters in the UK. The platform is on a mission to make Caribbean culture a “staple in the UK music industry moving forward”. More than just a musical engine, BPSOCA Music Limited is hoping to inspire a countrywide movement that sheds light on the important contributions of the British-Afro-Caribbean community.

More than 1300% increase in applications for some job roles. How COVID-19 has shifted demand in the recruitment market

[ad_1]

  1. 1300% shift in four-month period in certain sectors
  2. Year-on-year shift across all roles increases by average of 144%
  3. Candidates swapping sectors to find employment

Applicants are outweighing job vacancies, with increases as high as 1363% for certain roles in the four months from March to July, according to research from Search Consultancy.

The ratio of applicants applying for all available jobs has, on average, more than doubled during the pandemic when looking at year-on-year comparisons, with a major spike as the UK entered its fourth month of lockdown.

Search Consultancy is a provider of recruitment and executive search services to UK businesses. On analysing the market shift over the course of the year with huge increases in certain roles, pointing to a shift from a candidate-led job market to a client-led one.

Compared to the same period in 2019, the response-to-application ratio from March 2020 – July 2020, showed an increase of 144% year-on-year.

The picture is more stark when comparing like-for-like application data from pre-lockdown with those towards the end. Search looked at the number of people applying for the same roles in March and July of 2020 and the results show staggering increases, in some cases by over 1300 %

With demand shifting, Search has pivoted towards providing extra support for candidates with the provision of help and resources and in many instances helping them transition to completely new sectors.

From the start of the pandemic up until the end of June, Search’s specialist hospitality team placed more 400 temps into healthcare roles, and provided care homes and hospitals with kitchen staff, ward assistants and porters to meet the demand.

This was in addition to the 1,300+ health and social care temps that Search had also placed into key worker positions through its specialist healthcare division.

Dominic Starkey, Search Group Marketing Director, said:

“We are experiencing more than double the amount of applications to any job we post compared with last year. And for some roles, such as General Manager positions, the number of applications for advertised roles has jumped by over 1300%.

“This points to a UK job market that is drastically shifting from one where candidates enjoyed the balance of power, to one that now very much favours employers. It is a trend that look set to continue.

“Though Britain is slowly getting back to work, as restrictions ease, factors such as a second wave of the virus and an abrupt end to the Brexit transition period will likely see this ratio continue or even increase further.

“Employers are in a position now where they’re spoilt for choice when it comes to filling positions, but for candidates it’s an uncomfortably crowded marketplace. As a multi specialist recruiter we are well placed to help people understand their options and where they have transferable skills to explore other sectors where there are opportunities, seen by the pivoting within our hospitality team.”

Demand for antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings continues to grow as products come to market

[ad_1]

Nanocoatings can demonstrate up to 99.9998% effectiveness against bacteria, formaldehyde, mold and viruses, and are up to 1000 times more efficient than previous technologies available on the market. They can work on multiple levels at the same time: antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal, self-cleaning and anti-corrosion. Nanocoatings companies are already partnering with global manufacturers and cities to develop anti-viral facemasks, hazard suits and easily applied surface coatings. The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020 from Future Markets, Inc. provides an in-depth assessment of the latest products, applications, research and producers.

The use of nanomaterials makes it possible to provide enhanced antiviral, antibacterial, mold-reducing and VOC degrading processes, that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, allowing for exceptional hygiene standards in all areas of work and life. As a result, it is possible to create a healthier living and working environment and to offer holistic solutions to people with a diminished immune system. Nano-based surface coatings prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi and viruses via infected surfaces of so called high-traffic objects, such as door and window handles in public places, hospitals, public buildings, schools, elderly homes etc.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings are available in various material compositions, for healthcare and household surfaces, for indoor and outdoor applications, to protect against corrosion and mildew, as well as for water and air purification. Nanocoatings also reduce surface contamination, are self-cleaning, water-repellent and odour-inhibiting, reducing cleaning and maintenance

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings can be applied by spraying or dipping and adhere to various surfaces such as glass, metals and various alloys, copper and stainless steel, marble and stone slabs, ceramics and tiles, textiles and plastics.

Nanoparticles of different materials such as metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, metal oxide nanoparticles, and graphene-based materials have demonstrated enhanced anti-microbial and anti-viral activity. The use of inorganic nanomaterials when compared with organic anti-microbial agents is also desirable due to their stability, robustness, and long shelf life. At high temperatures/pressures organic antimicrobial materials are found to be less stable compared to inorganic antimicrobial agents.

Antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings applications include, but are not limited to:
• Medical facilities and laboratories
• Medical equipment;
• Fabrics and clothing like face masks;
• Hospital furniture;
• Hotels and other public spaces;
• Window glass;

Making African art a cornerstone of the global Art market: Pavillon54 Ltd Launches Pavillon54.com

[ad_1]

Making Africa a cornerstone of the Art market: Pavillon54 Limited Launches Pavillon54.com, the new digital hub for African art.

LONDON July 2020: Pavillon54 Limited today announces the launch of its online platform, pavillon54.com, a digital center for Modern and Contemporary Art from Africa and the Diaspora. The website is a one-stop digital platform and community for artists, collectors, dealers, institutions and enthusiasts in the ‘African’ art world, incorporating various sales and educational services such as:

• An e-gallery: Pavillon54 showcases the best art from Africa and the diaspora and includes a roster of curated artists who are able to sell their artworks via the platform. Artists are onboarded or pre-vetted by the Pavillon54 team, to ensure the highest quality of artworks are displayed. Collectors can visit the website to discover new artists and build their art collections from Pavillon54’s selection.
• A well-documented blog and other resources: Pavillon54 publishes informative articles, reports or databases that aim to inform on the state, history and context of African art, providing collectors and dealers with the knowledge required to make intelligent art investments, and researchers and enthusiasts with the tools to build their African art knowledge.
• Experiences and events: Online and offline events aim to build a community for art from Africa and the diaspora. Events will include pop-up exhibitions, studio visits, talks or artistic retreats in different cities across the world, online Live events via social media channels, and in-person discovery and immersion experiences.

“More than an online gallery, we are building an ecosystem that can support a sustainable development of the African art market” says Dana Endundo Ferreira, Founder and CEO of Pavillon54. “We make Africa a cornerstone of the global market by increasing artists exposure, investing in education and expanding the collector base”.

Indeed, the launch of Pavillon54 comes at an important time, as the African Art Market sees sustained growth and significance in the art world in past years and is gaining increased exposure due to recent Black Lives Matter movements. However, despite the increasing appetite for African art, a lack of strong gallery representation and few connections with the international art network means that many artists from Africa have limited opportunities for exposure. Education and information about the African art market is also still relatively under-documented, restricting the ability for the African art world to flourish. Pavillon54’s solution aims to rectify these issues, and provide a centralized space for artists, collectors, institutions and dealers to collectively build the African art market.

ABOUT PAVILLON 54

Pavillon54 is the go-to platform for Modern and Contemporary African art, connecting artists, collectors, buyers, institutions, and art lovers across the world. Founded by Dana Endundo Ferreira in 2020, it combines an e-gallery sales platform, a research-focused online blog, and various online and offline events and experiences to develop a worldwide ecosystem and community around Modern and Contemporary African art. The company aims to propel the African art market by creating the first and foremost platform dedicated to developing the arts and culture of Africa – by Africans, for Africans and for (the rest of) the world.

Mobile Jungle set to revolutionise the UK’s refurbished phones market

[ad_1]

ESSEX, UK; 24 June 2020 – Replacing your mobile phone every few years or when something goes unexpectedly wrong, is an unavoidable part of our modern lives. For some, it’s an excuse to get their hands on the latest and greatest tech, but for those looking to decrease their environmental impact, it can often be a bit more challenging. Shopping for refurbished mobile devices generally comes with mixed results.

Now there is a new, better way to buy refurbished mobile devices, whilst being kinder to the planet. Mobile Jungle is an online store selling high-quality refurbished smartphones and electronic devices direct to the public.

With a passion for sustainability and a vision to revolutionise the industry, Mobile Jungle is starting to get talked about for all the right reasons.

Based in Purfleet, Essex, Mobile Jungle’s team of technicians repair and refurbish all of their devices completely in-house. This has a substantial impact on both the carbon footprint of the business and the quality of the refurbishments.

“We’re here to raise the level of service that consumers seeking to buy a top quality reconditioned device receive,” says co-founder Justin Greenfield,“.  Historically certain customers within the refurbished smartphone market have been distrustful because of the lack of grading and quality control protocols in place, as well as less scrupulous e-commerce retailers leaving them waiting for months to receive the device or not refunding them promptly.

We’re on a mission to change all this by providing reliable service, high-quality and transparently graded products with no messing about”.

Mobile Jungle’s team of experienced and talented technicians take old, unwanted phones and turn them into like-new devices that operate perfectly, meaning customers can get an affordable phone without contributing to e-waste issues.

They may be a new business, but Mobile Jungle have big plans for the future, with ambition to launch a mobile repairs arm soon, where consumers can send in their existing devices for repairs.

Mobile Jungle customers have only good things to say about local business so far. Their trustpilot rating is the best in the sector with a trust score of 4.9 from over 110 reviews and growing.

“This truly is a business built for a modern world, built with conscious consumerism and our customer’s lifestyles in mind – which is why we also offer flexible payment options, including PayPal and Klarna. People’s mobile devices are their link to the world, so we understand how important it is to ensure they always have quick and easy access to a quality, functioning device,” says Greenfield.

Visit https://www.mobilejungle.com to see their extensive range of refurbished devices.

New Online Tool To Stop £23m Whisky Scam Market

[ad_1]

Cheshire based whisky broker Mark Littler Ltd has released a Cask Calculator to help stop the £23m global whisky scam market.

The increase in fraud during the Covid 19 outbreak has been well documented but fraudulent activity isn’t just limited to pandemics. Since the 1990s, globally over £23 million pounds has been pumped into fraudulent whisky cask ventures; and that is just the ones that have been shut down.

Mark Littler developed the Cask Calculator as a straightforward way to show all the costs involved in bottling a cask of whisky including, duty, VAT, uplift, bottling and shipping. The calculator gives an equivalent per bottle cost that can be cross referenced against bottle value prices to verify the cask price and prevent fraud.

‘Until now there has been no resource available to verify whisky cask prices like there is for property or shares (e.g. Zoopla or Morning Star). However prices for whisky bottles are widely available, so if you can turn a cask cost into a true per bottle cost then you can start to verify the price of a cask,’ explains Mark Littler, founder of Mark Littler Ltd and creator of the Cask Calculator. ‘By simply adding the details of a cask into the Cask Calculator it generates a realistic figure for a per bottle cost, which can then be compared to publicly available per bottle prices.’

The free calculator has been used more than 2,000 times in the last month alone.

Whisky cask scams are an issue in the unregulated industry. The Napier Spirits Company was set up in 1995 and alone sold £3.2million of casks to the unsuspecting public. In some instances Napier sold casks that were worth £500 for £3,500.

Napier Spirit Company was eventually shut down but cask mis-selling still happens today.

‘One of the worst instances I have encountered was just a few months ago at the start of 2020,’ says Mark Littler. ‘The asking price on a cask was so inflated it would have been cheaper to purchase comparable distillery bottled product at full retail price including shipping and taxes and decant those bottles back into a cask than pay the asking price for the cask. We want to make that kind of price disparity impossible.’

Alongside the cask calculator Mark Littler Ltd. have released a large number of other educational tools to help potential cask buyers purchase a whisky cask at a fair price. Resources include a 10 part video guide series, a 52 page printed or PDF Cask Buying Guide and dozens of blogs that cover everything from avoiding scams to everything you could possibly want to know about a cask.

Mark Littler Ltd is an independent antiques consultant and whisky broker with over 300 five star reviews of their services. They have sold everything from medieval rings, classic Porsche, vintage Rolexes and casks of Macallan. They also provide a cask brokering service with the ethos of helping their customers buy quality whisky casks at a fair price.

Could lockdown lead to mortgage market boost?

[ad_1]

These are certainly challenging times in the UK, but in the gloom of lockdown, there may be some positive news for UK property buyers. That’s because in recent weeks, changes to mortgage products have seen restrictions eased and rates made more favourable for those looking to get on the housing ladder. Read more in this UK mortgage review.

More choice than pre-lockdown?

It appears that there are now more options for UK buyers – including the first time buyer – as products are being updated. Let’s round up some of the key developments.

Halifax, Nationwide, Santander and Virgin are among the lenders to have made it easier to qualify for a mortgage. Halifax and Nationwide are again accepting mortgage’s with a 15 per cent deposit, which brings renewed hope for the return of the 5% deposit mortgages.

Santander took the step of slashing the fees on its residential mortgages, while also upping the maximum loan size which it offers – up to £500,000 from £300,000. Virgin Money also got in on the act, facilitating 75% mortgages with non-physical valuations after a period of absence.

So what does it all mean? According to Eleanor Williams, the Moneyfacts expert, the changes are a reflection of lenders adjusting to the changing landscape around them. She explained: “Continuing the encouraging trend from last week where we saw early indications of lenders acclimatising to the ‘new normal’ and beginning to return products to their ranges, this week has seen further positive updates from a variety of mortgage providers.”

Getting the job done

“Lenders have certainly shown that ‘the show must go on’ during lockdown, finding ways to circumnavigate the problem of issuing valuations” says Hello Mortgage’s MD Keith Ahmed. This is because many properties cannot be visited at this time in order to make an inspection.

Mortgage providers are making better use of drive-by valuations, which use a system based process to agree property purchases. Henry Jordan, Nationwide’s director of mortgages, suggested to the BBC that now confidence has grown in methods such as drive-by valuations, lenders are happy to stay as active as possible even given the current situation.

Mr Jordan said: “As the UK’s second-largest mortgage lender, it is right that we still play an active role in the market, while maintaining the levels of service expected of us, during what are unprecedented and evolving times.”

Payment holidays

For those currently linked in to mortgage deals, there has also been some respite, with lenders offering payment holidays to those who wish to take the option during the coronavirus pandemic. According to the UK Finance trade association, payment holidays that have been taken across the country total an estimated £3.6 billion and are equivalent to one in seven mortgages.

The organisation reports that loans taken out on 1.6 million homes now qualify for the payment break, giving Brits some leeway as they attempt to keep their personal finances on track during this difficult period.

Building Societies Association (BSA) chief executive Robin Fieth suggested that the leeway offered to borrowers now go further than simply a payment holiday. He said: “Lenders are working hard to help in a range of ways and it is right that this now includes the ability for those on a three-month payment holiday to be able to switch on to a new product with their existing lender at the end of a fixed-term product should the two events coincide.”

In the first instance, if they are concerned about their finances, borrowers are being advised to check the website of their mortgage broker to see what the recommended steps are, including how to apply for a payment holiday.

However, a mortgage holiday is necessarily a great thing, as Keith Ahmed explains “Borrowers should exercise some caution when opting for a mortgage holiday and only do so if they are in genuine financial difficulty. Any payment holiday ultimately results in you being in debt for a longer period of time. Borrowers should take a holistic view of their finances and look at making other sacrifices before opting for a mortgage holiday”

Housing demand up in the North

Lastly, Zoopla has reported an increase in housing demand in the North of England over the last two weeks of April, for this reason, the northern cities have been tabbed to rebound quicker from the lockdown than urban hubs in the South.

“Northern cities have seen the strongest improvement in underlying demand although levels remain half those at the start of the crisis,” explained Richard Donnell, Zoopla’s director of research and insight.

“Having our roots firmly in the North of England, this is welcomed news. The North often suffers when compared to the South, let’s hope the upwards trend continues for us. It really isn’t all doom and gloom for the mortgage market, there are some fantastic remortgage deals out there as well as a comeback for the first time buyer market” says Keith Ahmed.

If you are looking for a mortgage, or perhaps want some free mortgage advice, rely on the region’s trusted mortgage broker, Hello Mortgage.

Eitan Eldar: Online Tools Help Keep UK Real Estate Market Afloat During Coronavirus Pandemic

[ad_1]

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the whole world is massive, with a sharp down-trend in stocks and real estates in the UK. Since the pandemic became wide-spread across the globe, it has become increasingly difficult to do business as usual for everyone, even for real estate agents, as they develop new ways of viewings and valuations. The country-wide lockdown has taken its toll on the real estate market.

As it becomes increasingly difficult to carry out business as usual, Eitan Eldar says, “The quarantine and restrictions on movement set by the government to stop the spread of the coronavirus prevented potential buyers from inspecting properties and meeting with agents. We all know this isn’t good for the real estate business, but it’s the best approach to contain the spread of the virus.”

Online tools for viewings and valuations by real estate agents

With new sales becoming virtually challenging to close, the UK real estate agents are moving online in their droves for viewings and valuations. Sellers that were already on the ground on the market have their available stock reduced just by 2.6%. However, as the government restrictions on movement and physical business transactions came to being, different initiatives have been exploited by real estate agents to reach both potential buyers and sellers.

“Showing properties online has helped to keep the real estate market afloat for all during this coronavirus outbreak. However, sales are still down,” said Eitan Eldar. “This method allowed the real estate market to stay somewhat active, compared to other fields to shut down completely. With this novel initiative, investors can still go about to check out properties of their choice and close deals even as the pandemic ravages the world”.

The focus of the real estate agents is now on video viewings of properties, allowing buyers to inspect properties they are interested in ahead of the time when the restrictions will be lifted on movements. Real estate markets have started to recover from the fall it experienced at the beginning of the lockdown.

The overall result of the pandemic on real estate

Like every other sector of the economy, the real estate industry has had its fair share of the pandemic. And the impact might still be felt even when restrictions of movements have been loosened.

Eitan Eldar says, “In the real estate market, commercial real estate continues to experience the most of the impact of the pandemic. We don’t expect a fall in the private home market, at least, not in the long run”.

Antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings market to grow in response to COVID-19 pandemic

[ad_1]

https://www.prfire.com/
The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020

When the current global crisis has abated, efforts must turn to future preventative measures. Nanocoatings can demonstrate up to 99.9998% effectiveness against bacteria, formaldehyde, mold and viruses and are up to 1000 times more efficient than previous technologies available on the market. They can work on multiple levels at the same time: antiviral, bacterial and fungal and self-cleaning.

Nanocoatings companies are already partnering with global manufacturers and cities to develop anti-viral facemasks, hazard suits and easily applied surface coatings.

Their use makes it possible to provide enhanced antiviral, antibacterial, mold-reducing and TVOC degrading processes, that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, allowing for exceptional hygiene standards in all areas of work and life. As a result, it is possible create a healthier living and working environment and to offer holistic solutions to people with a diminished immune system. Nano-based surface coatings prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi and viruses via infected surfaces of so called high-traffic objects, such as door and window handles in public places, hospitals, public buildings, schools, elderly homes etc.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings are available in various material compositions, for healthcare and household surfaces, for indoor and outdoor applications, to protect against corrosion and mildew, as well as for water and air purification. Nanocoatings also reduce surface contamination, are self-cleaning, water-repellent and odour-inhibiting, reducing cleaning and maintenance.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings can be applied by spraying or dipping and adhere to various surfaces such as glass, metals and various alloys, copper and stainless steel, marble and stone slabs, ceramics and tiles, textiles and plastics.

Nanoparticles of different materials such as metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, metal oxide nanoparticles, and graphene-based materials have demonstrated enhanced anti-microbial and anti-viral activity. The use of inorganic nanomaterials when compared with organic anti-microbial agents is also desirable due to their stability, robustness, and long shelf life. At high temperatures/pressures organic antimicrobial materials are found to be less stable compared to inorganic antimicrobial agents. The various antimicrobial mechanisms of nanomaterials are mostly attributed to their high specific surface area-to-volume ratios, and their distinctive physico-chemical properties.

The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020 provides a detailed analysis of measures that can be used to address and mitigate the current pandemic threat, now and in the medium-term.
Report contents include:
