The rise of homemade packaging

There are many small companies selling goods online or at local exhibitions and if this sounds like you, then it can actually make a lot of sense to design and create the packaging for your products yourself, especially for very small lightweight items.

Let’s say you sell oat bars, cakes or homemade chocolates and you need to package them up nicely for your customers. You may only need to order some boxes and stickers, and these can easily be custom designs which are printed in bulk quantities and delivered to you to put into shape. Packaging is of course a bit of a burden when orders do pick up, and you don’t want to spend half your time packaging when you could be selling more, so there will come a time when it does make sense to outsource this work to a packaging company with high quality equipment, but until that point, there’s no harm in looking at more cost-effective methods.

Basic Methods with Windows Files and Folders

In my work as a PC Repair Engineer, I come across a lot of different problems.
But one recurring issue is the fact that people are not taught the basics of how to use Windows!

To help remedy this, I have produced a series of Blog Articles showing a step-by-step introduction to Files and Folders.

Starting from the very basics, it gives the novice vital information on how their files are stored, and instructions on how to navigate the Folder system.

Organising the plethora of files that build up in one’s computer can be a daunting task, but with the tips provided here, I hope to make it a little more manageable, teaching you how to Cut and Copy multiple files/Folders at once and navigate quickly between different Folders.

The Summary Page provides a simple Glossary of terms and recaps the lessons we have learned, as well as providing a guide to identify the different types of Files.

Although aimed at complete novices, even more, advanced users may find some useful information here, whether on the use of the Ribbon, right-click sub-menus or Control Keys.

Remember, if you need any help with your PC or laptop, call the PC Wizard for a fix in the comfort of your home.

The Industrial Use of Custom Built Security Cameras

When choosing a security camera for industrial use, it quickly becomes apparent that the standard cameras that are found from retailers are not going to be up to the task. It could be the low vision range of standard cameras, or their durability levels. What ever the reason, if this is the case then it may be wise to seek a custom camera manufacturer.

Custom built cameras are often used for industrial purposes. They can be built to specific specifications and made on bulk, both extremely important factors for large scale, industrial use. Not only this but custom cameras can be customised and branded with a professional logo of choice.

The disadvantages however lie in the fact that a large bulk order of custom made security cameras is not cost-effective for the average business. Making this an option for mainly larger organisations and businesses that can afford the labor and production costs.

 

How Businesses Make Use Of GPS Tracking Systems

GPS tracking is used by many businesses and in various ways. From detailed tracking of inventory, to real-time feed back of logistics vehicles, GPS tracking become a way for businesses to remain competitive in a rapidly developing market.

The development of GPS tracking technology has progressed to a point by which GPS devices now can be fitted to almost anything. This allows for almost anything to be tracked, and in turn, allowing businesses to have greater feed back and more accurate information on what they are managing, shipping and selling.

An example of this is the use of GPS devices to manage logistics vehicle fleets. GPS devices can allow logistics companies to manage the movement of vehicles with military precision.  Real-time tracking of this kind is extremely valuable, to the point that it is almost a necessity for those who want to be competitive in the logistics services industry.
