Lose the Paper Trail and Invest in a Paperless Time Clock System

If you are looking for ways to increase employee productivity and efficiency without going on a hiring spree, why not start with your time keeping system? Chances are you are still using a manual time keeping system to keep a detailed record of all of your employees. In order for your company to save money on operational expenses and increase productivity, you need to invest in a paperless time clock system.

Makes Multi-Location Time Tracking a Breeze

It is very time consuming and confusing to manage employees from different locations. Not only do you need to make sure that each person is doing their job correctly, you also need to keep track of their hours. A paperless time clock can help you to do both and keep you from losing your mind. It can track all of your employees’ work hours across different locations and eliminate the need for a paper trail.

Payroll is Easier to Process

An electronic time clock is very accurate. It tracks time all the way down to the exact second. You do not have to worry about any discrepancies or uncertainties when it comes to determining the exact time that someone punched in. All accounting is taken care of and determining overtime pay is much easier. A paperless time clock stores all employee time information in a database, while significantly reducing payroll and accounting errors.

Saves Money on Equipment

Constantly purchasing supplies can quickly add up to an expense that you may not be able to afford since supplies may not always be available for an affordable price. By upgrading to a paperless time clock system, you can use your time for more important things and eliminate manual time keeping equipment expenses from your budget.

Even if you have had a great deal of success in the past with manual time clock systems, it is time for you to bring your business into the 21st century with equipment that will improve employee productivity and efficiency, while reducing your operational costs.

Gifts That Show Love

gift tipsThere are just some gifts that stand out more than others, in terms of showing someone that you truly care about them. These gifts tend to be ones that are designed to provide comfort and stability in changing conditions. And when it comes to changing conditions, nothing changes more frequently and more dramatically than the weather.

Remind Them Of You

Weather-related gifts can be items like mittens and gloves, warm woolen scarves, umbrellas, rain jackets and rain boots. They have an unmistakable way of saying (on behalf of the gifter,) “I really care about you, and I want you to be warm and dry, especially when the sky is pouring down in a deluge, or when the temperature drops below freezing. I want you to wear this and think of me.”

Ample Protection From The Elements

And so, really there’s no more loving type of gift you can get for a special person than a form of protection, in any shape or form. In this case, it’s the weather. And of all those items, the one that is least likely to be something that people will purchase for themselves is a rain jacket. And you can go further by having that special person’s rain jacket distinctively monogrammed.

The Distinctive Styling That Comes With The New Englander Rain Jacket

Charles River Womens New Englander Rain Jackets make wonderful gifts. They are lined with grey mesh for air-flow circulation and have taffeta nylon in the sleeves for easy on/off.

The next time you need to buy a gift for someone special, think about making it a beautifully monogrammed New Englander Rain Jacket, to show how much you care.

Quitting Smoking Is Easy

vaporizer  e-cigs

Quitting smoking, as they say, is easy…in fact, it’s a breeze. Most smokers quit at least a hundred times during the course of their addiction…so just ask them.

Staying Quit Is The Hard Part

Now, staying quit…that’s altogether a different matter. That’s where, for the average person whose life is ruled by what some people call cancer sticks, the proverbial “rubber meets the road.” Staying quit means that no matter what period of time has lapsed between now and the last cigarette you smoked, you’re not going to pick up a cigarette, light it and smoke it. And, regardless of whether you go out and buy your own pack of cigarettes or you merely bum one from someone else, the very moment you place that lighted roll of tobacco and chemicals into your mouth and inhale, you are again smoking. Smoking just one cigarette at any time after you have quit the habit relegates you right back to where you were when you supposedly quit the habit.

The Mental Addiction

So, like pretty much all of the other addictions out there, the axiom: once a smoker, always a smoker for some of us, holds a bit of truth. At least for the first year or so, until we really are mentally free of the habit. See, smokers dispense with the physical addiction long before they are able to rid themselves of the mental addiction to cigarettes.

Help

The psychological power of an addiction to cigarettes is the real reason behind the need for most people to have access to smoking cessation aids such as nicotine patches, gum and medications. Unfortunately, all of these aids come with a hefty price tag, to even supersede the previous money laid out for cigarettes. This is where electronic cigarettes offer the most reasonable, comfortable, easy way to quit the traditional tobacco cigarette habit.

As Painless As Possible

No matter what form of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) you ultimately use, it’s important to know that quitting smoking will not be 100% painless. There will be times when you will experience cravings, but the difference between using NRT and quitting cold turkey is that you will have something gratifying that you can do, whenever your brain tells you that you need a cigarette.

To Duel Is To Live

duelDueling is one of the ancient codes of a polite society. Back in the day you could challenge someone to a duel if they had offended you in some way or if you just were really drunk and angry. You’d then take them out into a field, take out a sword or pistol, and then try to either kill or mane one another. Could you imagine how crazy that would be today with the internet? Don’t like that commenter? Challenge them and try to kill them; that would probably cut down on the amount of trolling and rage posts out there on the world wide web.

Today, we can’t really duel in the same fashion as before; the whole killing part is considered to be rather “illegal” in nature. Now if you wanted to duel someone you will have to settle for some wooden boards and a leather pad from Duelingboards.com. You might think that’s a rather odd selection, since there are some many different ways to duel out a problem; but these boards are different. Unlike most cheap dueling boards, the boards from Duelingboards.com are made in America, and are made from solid wood and not press board. This means that the dueling board is solid enough to last for years and even generations. They are high quality as are the leather bags you use to play the game.

Duelingboards.com gives you hand made in the USA product that isn’t outrageous to purchase or own.

Save Money, Time, and Data With Smartphone Repair

The current lifespan of a smartphone is less than 18 months. Sometimes this is because a customer is eager to trade up to the latest technology, but many times it is because the customer is not aware the phone can actually be repaired. Many warranties cover manufacturing defects only, and when accidental breakage is covered, factory repairs or replacements can be prohibitively expensive. Plus, warranties expire. What is a customer to do besides throw the thing into a landfill and start over? The good news is there are repair options that can help save phones and the planet.

Assessing the Damage

The phone doesn’t work, the warranty is out, and the replacement cost is upwards of $400. There is no backup to the broken phone’s data. The replacement itself is likely to be a refurbished rather than a new device. Before panic sets in, it is useful to take stock of exactly what is and is not happening with the broken phone. Perhaps it just needs an easily replaceable part. These are a few of the parts that are minimally complicated to repair, including the following.

  • Battery
  • Screen
  • Power button
  • Charging point

Some motherboard components are trickier to fix, but usually not impossible. The same goes for corroded wires. While the repair may involve more than simply swapping out a part, it is likely the cost will be cheaper than either a replacement or a new phone.

Keep Your Data

There are tremendous advantages to repairing a phone over replacing it. Convenience tops the list. If a phone is discarded before its data can be backed up, all that information is lost. Bringing a phone back to life often brings all the pictures, music, and information back with it.

Reconnect for Less

Repairs can take much less time than a factory replacement. Depending on the extent of the damage, turnaround can take just a couple of days. A repair is more than likely to save a customer money. For example, a screen replacement may cost less than $150, compared to one hundred to several hundred dollars more for a factory fix. Repair may be the smart choice.
