WD Music is a one-of-a-kind company, but their path to growth was blocked by a problem faced by thousands of small and mid-sized businesses: their precious capital was tied up in a long cash-conversion cycle. WD Music had to pay suppliers in-full for guitar parts, then wait weeks or months to recoup the cash from customer sales. This left them without the working capital to buy more inventory, fulfill more orders and create a healthier, more profitable business. One day, Larry Davis, Vice President of WD Music, was speaking with Greg Kleehammer, from UPS Capital®. Kleehammer asked a simple question: “What if you could take one of your company’s biggest assets — your in-transit inventory — and turn it into working capital?” That’s how WD Music discovered an alternative-financing solution that opened the door to more growth, more prosperity and a lot less stress.

Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers.

This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms.

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs) continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn, better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small to medium-size business (SMB) market segment. The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks. While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the service in a car

Competitive pressures from peers are forcing CSPs to evolve beyond connectivity and offer incremental valueadded services to sustain revenue growth. Security services are an obvious candidate for consideration since awareness of the need for security protections is extremely high due to regular media coverage highlighting Internet exploits. Threat trends and strong alignment with large customer segments are creating opportunity for CSPs to offer a foundational layer of web protection for every Internet access connection. They can provide a previously unavailable level of web security that reduces the risk their customers face, without imposing a configuration or management burden.

Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.

Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits. Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server! Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions. For many retailers, a completely "cashless society" is nowhere in sight. Cash management remains one of the most important aspects of managing a retail operation, particularly at quick service restaurants (QSRs) and convenience stores, where transactions are smaller and cash is a preferred method of payment. This white paper, Boost Profitability by Automating Cash, sponsored by Fiserv and Fast Casual, details the steps to manage cash properly and boost profit for your business. Uncover the top reasons and flexible options to automate your cash management. • Time savings • Theft deterrence • Higher accuracy • Better customer service • Real-time data
