Hunters begins testing new ‘flexible working’ CRM system

first_imgHunters has revealed more details about its new in-house ‘hybrid-style’ software system that will be rolled out across its franchisee network in the coming months and which, it claims, has already helped its brand achieve a 97% customers service rating.Called SKIPA, the company has been piling cash into its development because, it believes, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the ‘technology revolution’ by between three and five years.“SKIPA will ensure that our customers and agents benefit from the latest technological user experiences and capabilities and will enhance productivity and efficiencies across our network,” says Hunters’ chairman and MP Kevin Hollinrake.“It will facilitate a more flexible way of working and automate many normally labour-intensive processes, leaving our agents free to list, sell and let more homes.”Hunters has revealed the new system on the same day it announced mixed results for the first six months of the year.Reduced turnoverThis includes a £2 million year-on-year reduction in revenue from its franchisees to £17.2 million, but increased profits (up 30% to £1.44 million) and five new branches.This has led its board to reinstate dividend payments to share shareholders.“Since the lockdown, we have seen significant levels of activity from those looking to move home and we are in a strong position to weather the uncertainty ahead and are excited with the progress we have made with our new CRM,” says Hollinrake.“Sales activity increased in June, July and August, with August instructions being 38% ahead of last year increasing the network pipeline of sales due for exchange and completion [by] 43%.”Read more about Hunters.Visit Hunters.kevin holinrake SKIPA Hunters September 29, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_img View post tag: Exercise Poland: HMS Ledbury Ready for Nato Exercise View post tag: Defence View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Defense View post tag: NATO View post tag: Ledbury October 31, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today Poland: HMS Ledbury Ready for Nato Exercise Training & Education HMS Ledbury has sailed into Poland for the start of a NATO exercise involving ships from partner nations including Norway, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Estonia.The two-week exercise will see the personnel take part in a number of warfare serials including hunting for dummy mines, diving, replenishing their supplies while at sea and air defence.Testing the full capacity of the NATO Response Force it will also assess their ability to work together in challenging situations.“I am very much looking forward to working with our NATO partners and integrating with Standing Naval Mine Counter Measures Group 1 during Exercise Steadfast Jazz 13, while also proving the full capability of the NATO Readiness Force,” said Lieutenant Commander Simon Pressdee, the Commanding Officer of HMS Ledbury.During the five day passage from Portsmouth, and shortly before arriving in the Polish city of Gdynia, the ship’s company took some time to reflect on a famous historical Naval battle.The Battle of Jutland took place almost 100 years ago off the North West coast of Denmark and was fought between Admiral Jellicoe’s British Grand Fleet and Admiral Sheer’s German High Seas Fleet. More than 8000 men were killed on both sides, with many more wounded.As HMS Ledbury passed over the Jutland bank, a brief memorial was held during which members of the ship’s company read out individual medal citations for courageous actions during the battle.Lt Cdr Pressdee added:“To achieve a few moments reflecting with my crew on the Battle of Jutland while passing over this maritime battlefield was a real honour, as few warships are able to visit such an important place in Royal Naval history.”The following day, Ledbury, a Portsmouth-based minehunter, transited ‘the Sound’ – a 45 nautical mile stretch of confined water which separates Sweden and Denmark.After passing the Danish capital Copenhagen, the ship passed under the Malmö Bridge, one of the largest and most impressive in Europe.Ledbury will, for the second time this year, represent the Royal Navy in a standing NATO Group, following a successful three months deployed with NATO to the Mediterranean this summer.She will return to the UK in mid November in order to pay a visit to Swansea and will continue UK based training and operations before her ship’s company – Crew 6 – deploys to the Gulf in 2014.[mappress]Press Release, October 31, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: Ready View post tag: poland View post tag: HMS Share this articlelast_img read more

BNC JCR cash control

first_imgFollowing the expenditure of a £500 bust of BNC’s ex-JCR President Paul Gladwell, a motion to prevent unnecessary expenditure was put forward before the JCR.Proposed by Gavin Fourie and seconded by Richard Hoyle, it said that all expenditure over £250 must be approved at two successive JCR meetings. The motion stated, “£500 was roughly the cost of the pre-drinks before the Christmas party, so while the JCR does have some money, there are some much better uses for the community.” At present, the Brasenose JCR constitution says that “donations” over £250 must be passed twice, the constitution may be ammended to include any expenditure over £250. The JCR has agreed to pay £4,000 towards the loss of the BNC ball,  and is also deciding whether to renew a Sky Sports and ESPN package.JCR President Dan Wainwright said, “The motion was simply to clarify that it meant expenditure. The bust of Paul Gladwell was a one off expenditure, so does not have a hugely significant effect on our year on year finances. The Sky Sports/ESPN package obviously does, but we are looking into ways of lowering the cost.”The motion was not voted on last Sunday as it was submitted late. It will be considered during the next JCR meeting in 7th week.last_img read more

Former St Hugh’s student completes row across Pacific

first_imgA St Hugh’s alumna has rowed across the Pacific from Japan to Alaska – and is thought to be the first person to complete the solo voyage.Sarah Outen, who read Biology, rowed 3,750 nautical miles in 150 days and arrived in Adak in the Aleutian Islands on Monday.She told Cherwell, “I am so happy to be safely ashore after some of the most amazing months of my life. And stoked that it all started in Oxford – that’s when I started to row. Thank you St Hugh’s/OUWBC!”The voyage was part of her London2London: Via the World expedition; she is attempting to row, kayak and cycle across two oceans, three continents and 14 countries in a continuous loop around the world. The expedition began on 1 April 2011 at London’s Tower Bridge and will see her row 7,500 nautical miles and cycle 16,000 miles in total.Bridget Fryer, outgoing President of Oxford University Women’s Boat Club, said, “It is great to hear of Sarah Outen’s achievement. We are extremely proud to have her as an alumni of the Oxford University Women’s Boat Club and I hope that her determination and courage is an inspiration to current and future oarswomen at Oxford University and throughout the UK.”After completing the North Pacific crossing Outen, 28, commented, “I have pushed myself to my absolute limits both physically and mentally to make land here in Alaska, and body and mind are now exhausted.”She added, “I am so grateful to everyone for supporting my return after Mawar ­– sponsors, family, friends at home and in Japan and my team. Without them I wouldn’t be here. I am solo only physically – there are in fact a lot of people on my boat with me!”Outen previously attempted the voyage in May 2012 but had to be rescued by the Japanese Coast Guard 25 days in after her boat was damaged by Typhoon Mawar. During her second attempt the rower capsized five times, narrowly avoided a collision with a cargo ship and was forced by high winds and bad weather to row to Alaska instead of Canada as planned. A spokesperson for St Hugh’s told Cherwell, “St Hugh’s is extremely proud of Sarah’s achievement. Not only has she successfully completed a demanding physical and mental challenge, she is also raising a significant amount of money for charity. We would also like to congratulate her on her recent engagement and wish her all the best for the future.”Outen proposed to her girlfriend Lucy via a satellite telephone whilst in the middle of the Pacific. She will move on to the next leg of the journey in 2014 when she will kayak through the Archipelago to mainland Alaska. Outen is expected to complete her London2London expedition in late 2015 and is hoping to raise over £100,000 for CoppaFeel!, the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, The Jubilee Sailing Trust and WaterAid.A third year undergraduate at Exeter College said, “I will try and think of Sarah when I’m sweating on the Isis and be humbled. Big respect!”last_img read more

Sharma Montgomery to run for Bayonne City Council

first_imgBAYONNE – Former Board of Education candidate and Air Force veteran, Sharma Montgomery, will run for the First Ward Bayonne City Council seat on mayoral candidate Jason O’Donnell’s ticket in the municipal elections in May. The First Ward Councilperson represents residents living south of 17th Street and 16th Street Park, including the Bergen Point neighborhood. The First Ward Council seat is currently held by Tommy Cotter.Montgomery was enlisted in the U.S. Air Force from 1992 to 1997, then pursued a career in communications. In the Bayonne community, she serves on the Board of Directors for the Bayonne Jewish Community Center and on the board of the BHS Band Foundation, a nonprofit that supports the high school marching band.“All across our city, people are clamoring for change because they know that Jimmy Davis has used the last four years to line the pockets of rich, out of town developers at the expense of Bayonne taxpayers,” said Montgomery in a press release. “Jason believes as I do that service to our community is an investment in the future and that sitting on the sidelines while this Administration and Council continue making decisions that hurt taxpayers is simply not an option. Jason has put together a great team and I am looking forward to joining them as we knock on doors and speak to residents throughout the city about our plans for Bayonne’s future.”“Sharma Montgomery’s service to our country and dedication to our community is indicative of her tremendous character and her commitment to serving the public,” said O’Donnell in the release.Previously announced council candidates on O’Donnell’s ticket include Daniel Ward and Melissa Enriquez-Rada, who will run for the two at-large council seats, and Kevin Kuhl for Second Ward. Daniel Ward is Director of the Social Studies and Library/Media Science Programs at the Bayonne School District, and Enriquez-Rada is a local real estate agent and president of the Rotary Club of Bayonne. Kevin Kuhl is the proprietor of Kuhl’s Tavern and on the Board of Directors for the Bayonne Friends of Special Children and the Don and Arlene Ahern Foundation.last_img read more

Asda awards own-label bread contract to RHM

first_imgAsda has transferred own-label business worth an estimated £10 million a year from Allied Bakeries to RHM Bread Bakeries.Allied will stop supplying private-label to Asda at the end of February, apart from two lines – its “Big Loaf” in medium- and thick-sliced. It will continue to supply a range of branded goods.The loss of volume, which could be up to around a million loaves a week, will mean Allied will have to review its bakery operations, speculated baking industry city analyst David Lang from Investec. “Allied’s new CEO Brian Robinson will want to have a look at restructuring to bring throughput in line with capacity,” he said.Allied recently picked up a chunk of Tesco’s business from Harvestime (2005), which would mitigate the loss of volume, he added. Asda bakery director Huw Edwards told British Baker the decision to transfer to RHM was taken on a “whole range of issues”. “We never look at it purely on price. It’s about quality and service as well,” he said. Asda’s own-label range will remain as it is after the transfer, Mr Edwards added. However Asda will update packaging to bring it in line with its new-look morning goods range, relaunched in Autumn with brighter packaging. “We are taking the opportunity to make the range look more contemporary,” said Mr Edwards.Allied took over the Asda business about three years ago. In a statement, it confirmed the changes, but noted: “Allied continues to supply Asda with a wide range of bakery goods, including brands such as Kingsmill, Allinson and Burgen.”RHM said it did not wish to comment.last_img read more

9 September, 1938: A weighty sack

first_imgOne of the features of the Baking Exhibition is the fact that bakers from all over the world congregate there. The British Baker stand seems to be the meeting place of all the interesting folk in the bakery world, and it is well for those of us who have to do a bit of writing that it has its secluded portion, where we can work undistracted by the interest we cannot but feel in all the bakers from far and near who are to be found around it. On the stand of the Millers’ Mutual Association was an outsized bag filled with flour. Everyone making a donation of three pence for trade benevolence was invited to guess the weight of flour contained in this tremendous sack. Whoever guesses correctly gets the flour as a gift. One tough old baker held it lovingly within his grasp and, with florid face, gave it a hearty wrench to see if he could move it. As it must have weighed about a ton, he did not move it very far. Whoever wins, we hope they will not have to carry it out of the hall themselves!last_img read more

Anderson .Paak Releases New ‘Ventura’ Album [Listen]

first_imgAnderson .Paak has officially released his latest album, Ventura, via Aftermath. Executive produced by Dr. Dre, the new record comes as a quick follow-up to .Paak’s acclaimed late-2018 release, Oxnard, which was recorded during the same session..Paak’s new album boasts a number of exciting featured artists including hip-hop heavyweight André 3000 (Outkast), iconic soul singer Smokey Robinson, Lalah Hathaway, the late Nate Dogg and more.As .Paak noted about the new album, “Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to Ventura.”Ventura marks a sonic departure from most of .Paak’s previous material.The softer, more soulful sound falls in step with .Paak’s forecasts for his next chapter. In a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he said that fans could expect “Lots of soul, a bigger tour, and the best teeth in the game.” .Paak also made good on the bigger tour/best teeth in the game portion of his forecast in late February with the announcement of his Best Teef In The Game tour, a run of shows at arenas and amphitheaters nationwide. Thundercat will serve as support throughout the entirety of the tour, with Mac DeMarco, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, and Jessie Reyez joining in on select dates.Anderson .Paak – VenturaFor more information on Ventura, the Best Teef In The Game tour, and more, head to Anderson .Paak’s website here.last_img read more
