Avoid shock data roaming bills while on holiday abroad with 4G / 3G data SIM offerings from Cellhire. Optional MiFi devices [wireless routers] also available

July 30th 2015. York. Cellhire plc has made it easy to avoid shock data roaming bills this summer by expanding its 4G/3G data SIM and optional MiFi offerings to cover most of Europe, complementing its existing offerings for the USA, Brazil and many other countries.

For those holidaying in one country in Europe, Cellhire provides a SIM deal per country, priced around £39.99 for 30 days for the 10GB SIM. For those travelling to more than one European country, additional individual country SIMs can be purchased – or Europe-wide 10GB and 1GB SIMs are available as options. The 10GB option comes with 4G [switching to 3G where 4G isn’t available] and costs £109.99 for 30 days. The 1GB SIM is 3G only and comes with a price tag of £39.99 for 30 days. All prices include VAT.

“Despite special deals by mobile network operators, data roaming bills can still be high,” says James Hepton, Head of Online & Marketing at Cellhire. “Our MiFi and data bundles offer great value and lots of data enabling several people to connect a laptop, tablet, smartphone, iPhone or other device wirelessly at the same time – making it ideal for travelling. Some of our bigger bundles offer data for the equivalent of less than 1p per MB, much cheaper than the alternatives available.”

Hiring prices for a MiFi vary, depending on whether 3G or 4G is used. A 3G MiFi costs as little as £10 for 30 days, a 4G just £19.

Performance appraisal company Dinamiks Ltd launches mobile friendly website to front its cloud-based service

July 13th 2015,  Chichester. Dinamiks Ltd, developer of HR and management tool Dinamiks, has completely redesigned its website [dinamiks.com] to be mobile friendly and conform to the latest standards in website mobility.

Dinamiks is an online [cloud-based] employee performance management tool, designed to replace paper-based appraisals and appraisals that are carried out on in-house computer systems. It also features Talent Management, Compliance, Values and Employee Development Planning [EDP]/training modules.

“The cloud approach provides great flexibility, lowers costs while improving productivity and can be used anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection,” says Dinamiks Ltd Managing Director Simon Barnes.

Established in 2010, Dinamiks is used by SMEs based in the UK, USA, continental Europe and Australia and until now has been fronted by a standard website complying with all internet standards except, recently, the latest in mobility.

“That has now changed and, using our own internal resources, we have completely re-worked the website using responsive web technology, in which all pages now automatically adapt and change depending on the type of device and size of the screen used to view it,” says Barnes. “This is in response to website visitor demand and the changes announced by Google which ultimately come down to one very important criterion: whether your website, landing pages, and blog are fully optimised for mobile devices.”

Dinamiks offers a free appraisal form download at http://dinamiks.com/Freeappraisalform.aspx – and a free trial; register here http://dinamiks.com/liteTrial.aspx

WorkPlaceLive is the first hosted desktop provider in the world to gain the new technology industry credential – CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+ ™, which signifies commitment to industry best practices and a high level of customer service

July 10th 2015, Croydon, UK.  Cloud services supplier WorkPlaceLive announced today it is the first hosted desktop provider in the world to receive the CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+™, a new and respected industry credential focusing on adherence to best practices for technology service delivery and customer interaction.

“Earning this credential identifies WorkPlaceLive as a business that meets or exceeds the best business practices the IT industry has to offer,” said Nancy Hammervik, senior vice president, industry relations, CompTIA.

The Trustmark was developed by CompTIA, the non-profit association for the information technology industry, in collaboration with industry experts and leaders, to identify businesses that have made a commitment to the highest levels of integrity and sustained quality service. The Trustmark is designed specifically for technology vendors offering cloud solutions through IT service providers.

Joseph Blass, WorkPlaceLive CEO, commented, “Gaining Trustmark+ is further recognition of the high standards we set ourselves and our commitment to be ‘best of breed’ cloud services provider. Being the first hosted desktop provider globally with Trustmark+ is gratifying and echoes our gaining ISO 27001 accreditation in 2012, when WorkPlaceLive was in only the one per cent of companies in the UK with that credential.

“ISO 27001 is all about high standards in information security management. Trustmark+ has helped us broaden and deepen the quality that runs right through WorkPlaceLive.”

To earn the CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+, the company was evaluated on the internal practices and procedures it uses to run its business, and the external activities and operations it engages in with customers and channel partners.
