Contract Management Software For Small Business

Before talking about contracts which is never fascinating to me, I am sharing some quotes about contracts from my collection, I hope you will like it.

His contract has options through the year 2020 or until the last Rocky movie is made.
Dan Quisenberry

 

A verbal contract isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on
Samuel Goldwyn

 

Hollywood is a place where they place you under contract instead of under observation.
Walter Winchell

 

and the best I like is

I have a simple life. I mean, you just give me a drum roll, they announce my name, and I come out and sing. In my job I have a contract that says I’m a singer. So I sing.
Tony Bennett

 

The management of contracts with venders, employees and customers is an essential part for good public relations and repute of any company. Contract management software is a must for medium to large size businesses, and growing need of small organizations who does not have dedicated department for this purpose. The minimum for a contract management software ensures that all negotiations, terms and conditions in contracts are implemented during the life cycle of contract including contract creation, maturing, signing, execution and termination.
A study from Contract Management: Optimizing Revenues and Capturing Savings by Aberdeen Group
“42% of enterprises…the top driver for improvements in the management of contracts is the pressure to better assess and mitigate risks”

It also suggests that

“nearly 65% of enterprises report that contract lifecycle management (CLM) has improved exposure to financial and legal risk

The 10 most important gadgets of 2012

Samsung Galaxy S3

With technology advancing exponentially, so too are the number of new gadgets flooding the market. There are indeed so many gizmos coming out on a daily basis that it’s almost impossible to keep track of them.

10. Sony 4K TV

With everyone already owning an HDTV, it was inevitable that manufacturers would eventually start pushing the next big thing. Sony is one of the first with its 4K TV, with the 4K standing for the more than 4,000 pixels along its width, making it twice as sharp as a regular 1080p model.

9. MakerBot Replicator 2

The future is almost here, with 3D desktop printers coming down in price rapidly. The MakerBot Replicator 2, for example, sells for $2,200. Once these things fall under $1,000, the world will change dramatically.

 

8. Philips Hue Connected Bulbs

Ever wondered why the walls in future home conceptualizations are always starkly white? It might be because the future of home lighting lies in total user control, which is what Philips Hue Connected Bulbs do.

7. Google Nexus 7

Up until this year, the tablet market essentially belonged to Apple and its iPad. But then lo and behold, Google came along with the Nexus 7, a seven-inch tablet that hit all the technical specification sweet spots.

 

6. Nest Learning Thermostat

The promise of the smart, connected home has been around for ages, but it’s only now starting to become a reality with the ubiquity of smartphones, tablets and digital connectivity. The second-generation Nest Learning Thermostat uses algorithms that adjust to users settings, so it fluctuates home temperatures based on their behaviors.

5. Nintendo Wii U

There’s been a debate raging for years about whether Nintendo, the storied Japanese video game company, should stop making hardware. With each successive new generation of game consoles, the company staunchly marches ahead to its own beat with hardware that is dramatically different from competitors.

4. PlayStation Vita

Similar to the Nintendo hardware debate, there’s also considerable discussion over whether the portable gaming system space is dead. With tablets and smartphones eating into that casual, mobile space with cheap, quick games, the business case for high-end, expensive systems seems to be evaporating.

 

3. Samsung Galaxy S3

Just as the tablet market belonged solely to Apple before 2012, so too did the smartphone segment. Sure, Android phones together made up a larger overall share, but no single device was able to match the iconic iPhone – until the Galaxy S3 came along, that is.

 

2. Powerbag

This one is completely a personal pick, but I’ve been lusting over the Powerbag since I saw my friend’s a few months ago. The idea is simple: it’s a backpack that has an internal battery, which you can use to recharge your various gadgets.

Powerbag

1. iPad Mini

Google’s Nexus 7 (and perhaps Amazon’s Kindle Fire) may have set the standard on seven-inch tablets, but Apple’s iPad Mini raised the roof on them. The smaller tablet was my hands-down favorite gadget of the year, simply because it’s so much lighter and easier to use than its larger cousin.

5 Tips to Improve your Indoor Photography

Diving for internet I have found ten tips to improve your photos capture. These focus on the selection, camera rotation, framing, lighting and flash exposure and closing speed, apertures and neutral density filters.

The tips are of Geoff Lawrence, a professional photographer for many years he has mounted his website http://www.geofflawrence.com/ in offering advice to people who want to improve their photography. and each board is a wider section which can be accessed from the menu on the web, apart from others like composition, close-ups or editing. In short, a great site where you can find tips for beginners or for those looking to improve.

Well, I rolled. The tips:

Selection

Choose only the best pictures to show others and leave the others in the drawer. Show all photos made dilutes the effect of the best pictures and very boring. You may want to show twenty pictures of little Johnny in the park because they are all pretty good and you can not decide which are the best but, trust me, it will improve the decision making and showing only the good. – Go to Selection.

 

Turn the Camera

At first it seems hard to put the camera side, but worth getting used to. If the shape of the object, person or building, fits into a vertical rectangle, too much space is wasted on the picture if it is a flat landscape. You have paid for all those millions of pixels, not wasted. – Go to Trim.

 

Framing

One of the easiest ways to improve your photography is careful attention to framing. Look at the corners of the screen to see what is. Do you need all this background? Can you closer to your subject or zoom? – Go to Trim.

 

The Direction of Illumination

Photography is about light, the direction of the light on the object is the most important, the object should look carefully and see how the shadows fall.

If you can choose the time of day to shoot their photos, try when the sun is low, or in the early morning or late afternoon. Taking pictures of people with the sun too high, it may mean that the subject’s eyes to give them shade and / or squint with strong light, which together with the above makes it sound horrible. A nice side effect of using the light of dawn or dusk is that the color of the light is warmer, red and yellow are stronger which gives a more pleasing effect.

If you are photographing in sunlight, try to position yourself so that the sun of the subject from the side, this will give you a nice “pose” and help create a 3D effect to the photo.

Sunlight behind the subject can give a very nice effect of darkness but be careful not to have lens flare, which can degrade the image contrast. – Go to Sunlight.

 

The Direction of Illumination

The worst type of lighting is the small flashes built into modern cameras. It not only gives your subjects the dreaded red eye, but also puts all faces as points formless and shadow. Use only in an emergency, when there is no other option.

 

The Internal Flash

When you must use the internal flash, keep your subject away from walls, especially light-colored, and if possible, avoid that ugly shadow that appears as contour. Which does not appear on a dark background.

 

Exposure

Use auto exposure to their own benefit.

If you have a modern camera, usually the system default is centered approach, which means that while a reading of the scene, pay more attention to what is in the middle of the frame. What is good for us.

The other good thing is that it takes this reading when “first pressed” the button to take the picture. When you push it in half and it beeps, not only the target is set (in a auto focus camera) but reading is taken and the opening and closing speed are set. So, if your main point of interest is not in the center of the frame, it is good to put it there temporarily while you focus and take a reading light, then move the camera while holding the button halfway and compose the picture the way you want.

A common use of this technique is when taking a close up of two people and no space between their heads, if not careful the camera will focus on the wall or behind trees. If the background is very dark or light the exhibition will be altered and display faces too dark or too light. – Go to Exhibition.

 

Closing Speeds

The closing speed is important when objects are moving, it is good to set the camera to “Prioritization of closing speed.” This is where you select the closing speed and the camera selects the appropriate aperture for light reading. – Go to closing speeds and apertures.

 

Openings

If the depth of field is important to either make sure that everything is in focus or take away the focus, select the “Aperture Priority” of your camera. In this mode you select the aperture and the camera selects the closing speed depending on the available light. – Go to closing speeds and apertures.

 

Neutral Density Filters

If you are shooting pictures in bright light and wants to restrict the depth of field, use a neutral density filter in front of the lens to reduce the light entering it. They are available in different densities, 2x, 4x, 8x etc. Each light cut by half, quarter, eighth for etc. In extreme circumstances can put a couple of them together. Although neutral density filters and should not create any effect on color balance, if you use two or more together may need to correct the color when printing. – Go to closing speeds and apertures.
