Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 07, 2012

Munich, 5th November 2012: COMPUTERLINKS AG, parent company of COMPUTERLINKS North America, next generation global distributor of IT security and Internet technology solutions, today announced a 26 percent increase in revenue in the first nine months of the 2012 fiscal year compared to the same period last year. Group revenue across all the COMPUTERLINKS regions (Europe, ME/APAC and North America) rose from 519 million to 653 million compared to the first nine months of 2011 and profits followed a similar growth pattern.

The increase in revenue has been attributed to purely organic growth of the distributor that operates across 23 countries and employs over 600 staff worldwide. This is validation of our move to Next Generation Distribution and the expansion of our business into new geographies. In the last 12 months weve opened five new locations in India alone, which are already operating profitably and contributing to the success of the company, said Stephan Link, CEO and founder of COMPUTERLINKS AG. Our heritage and strength in IT security and Internet technologies have allowed us to operate largely unaffected by recent economic fluctuations. These results demonstrate our sustained focus on delivering exceptional service to our customers and responding quickly to their evolving needs to deliver cloud and mobile solutions to their clients.

Since the engagement of EQUISTONE (formerly Barclays Private Equity) in August 2008, COMPUTERLINKS has re-engineered its business and developed a range of channel-centric services designed to deliver greater margin opportunities for its channel partners, which it calls Next Generation Distribution. Key milestones include:

2009 Global Support Center opened; a dedicated 24×7 telephone support center to enable IT resellers to provide round-the-clock support for networking and IT security operations to their clients

2010 Virtualization Practice launched; a suite of professional services to provide specialist expertise and additional resource to enable its partners to be better equipped and benefit from higher margins when delivering virtualization solutions

2010 – ALVEA Services launched; a portfolio of aggregated cloud and managed services for the IT channel including Infrastructure, Cloud Attached Storage and Managed DNS

2011 COMPUTERLINKS Next Generation Data Center launched; a portfolio of tools and support services to enable resellers to deliver solutions to organizations building out their next generation data center or server room

IT security and Internet-based technologies around cloud and mobility are highly consulting-intensive markets, said Stephan Link. Our continued investment in these growth markets allows us to contribute significantly to the success of our customers by providing exceptional customer service in sales, marketing, logistics and technical support. We are therefore extremely positive about the future.

Canton, Ohio (PRWEB) October 28, 2012

Retail data is released monthly to allow analysts to predict upcoming trends in consumer spending. The Creating Jobs for America website has reviewed the latest data and compared to years 2011 and 2010 retail sales are down. While brick and mortar business is down, online businesses have reported increases in sales.

The 4.5 percent current growth for brick and mortar stores compared with sales of online retailers like Apple at 17 percent is a sign of the market shift in this decade. The Creating Jobs for America website is offering business training to companies that want to expand online sales. The training is accessible online here at this link.

Offline retail companies spend millions of dollars annually as a whole on security systems, employee health care and warehousing of products and services. This is combined with leasing fees, advertising and employee salaries. The Internet retail industry has helped many offline companies to fill in gaps in consumer spending.

While some sales data reports low growth for brick and mortar companies, some online companies are reporting record sales of products and services. Companies like Apple, Amazon, eBay, Target and other top retailers have reported growth in most quarters since 2002 according to data metrics.

E-commerce sales are helping some small businesses to find a niche market of consumers online. Many specialty stores sell exclusively online and usually provide incentives like discounts or free shipping to help keep up with competitors.

The website provides access to business training to companies that have trouble getting over sales slumps due to loss of customers or lack of online advertising spending. The training that is offered is designed to help companies boost e-commerce sales as well as web user traffic to websites, blogs or social media pages that are generally used as advertisements.

Promoting third party products is usually easier for businesses than for new marketers. Most companies earn a living by promoting products and receiving earnings higher than the wholesale price as profit. Affiliate marketing is a new way that some companies are using to expand online profits without carrying inventory or paying wholesale fees.

The Creating Jobs for America website now provides access to affiliate marketing training that is designed to help companies expand income generating opportunities apart from e-commerce sales.

Small businesses, website owners and retail chains that sell online could benefit from accessing the business training offered through the Creating Jobs for America website. The course creators guarantee all training and refunds are provided if training does not meet expectations or produce higher than average e-commerce results.

About Creating Jobs for America

The Creating Jobs for America website is a resource of business and entrepreneur training online. Website owners, individuals and business owners use this website to get access to training programs to grow online businesses. This business training is evaluated for quality as well as guarantees for those that complete the training. The Creating Jobs for America website was launched in 2012 as a resource to help those seeking online work to start an online company to get access to accurate information to make smarter income generating decisions online.

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

The Fleet Telematics Systems industry in Australia experienced a vibrant past five years. Industry revenue is estimated to grow at an annualised 5.7% over the five years through 2012-13 to reach $ 66.4 million. According to IBISWorld industry analyst Aries Nuguid, Regulatory requirements spurred the need for fleet operators to invest in new or upgraded fleet telematics systems. As fuel prices rose, fleet operators also invested in new hardware to increase the efficiency of supply chains. Higher road freight volume also provided some impetus with more hardware needed to monitor the traffic. Revenue is expected to grow 5.7% in 2012-13 as freight volumes grow and as fleet operators invest in systems to reduce the effects of higher fuel prices.

Despite the revenue growth, profitability in the Fleet Telematics Systems industry in Australia fell. Tapering off demand for system upgrades and installations in reaction to regulatory changes was a factor behind the reduced profitability. However, continued introduction of new products and features helped the industry maintain profitability. The higher value of the Australian dollar over the past five years also helped the industry lower the cost to purchase imported hardware, added Nuguid. At the device installation level of industry services, operators tend to serve small markets, based on geography or the niche services they provide. Installation is the most labour intensive of industry activities and economies of scale are limited as a result. The high value work required to establish fleet communication centres or customise software to meet client needs is more scalable, however companies that install hardware in vehicles tend to be involved in making associated systems and software work. Larger players tend to rely on subcontractors for installation of industry devices in vehicles.

Revenue in the industry is expected to accelerate over the next five years. New road safety regulations are expected to boost demand for fleet telematics systems as Australian road safety catches up to international standards. Fleet operators will also invest in new equipment to increase the efficiency of supply chains to minimise the effect of higher fuel prices. However, margins are forecast to narrow as markets mature and competition increases. Furthermore, the depreciation of Australian dollar is expected to heighten purchase costs.

(PRWEB) October 19, 2012

Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) is all set to launch its first high end Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), the SsangYong Rexton in the Indian market, on October 17. This is the first vehicle that is being launched in collaboration with SsangYong, since M&M took over the Korean manufacturer in 2011. The 3rd generation SsangYong Rexton launch will take place in Mumbai, followed by New Delhi and Bangalore, and then it will be rolled out phase wise from other cities. Since having acquired SsangYong in 2011, Mahindra may seem to be a little privy about its future goals, but with the advent of the SsangYong Rexton, buyers can expect that the best is definitely headed their way.

The Rexton was showcased internationally for the first time at the Busan Motor Show 2012. It is a body on frame SUV which is based on the first generation Mercedes M Class (W163), and is expected to compete against other heavyweight SUVs such as the Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and the Hyundai Santa Fe. One can expect the SsangYong Rexton price to be around Rs. 18.5 lacs.

The SsangYong Rexton is already being sold in 66 countries across the world; including parts of Europe, Russia and Korea. It is anticipated to set the benchmark in terms of price and features in the Indian market. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. & Chairman, SsangYong Motor feels that the Rexton will be able to carve out its niche due to a mix of great styling, luxurious interiors and superior on-road and off-road performance.

Mr Goenka also said that Indian buyers could look forward to a high-performance diesel engine under the hood of the Rexton, which is a great combination of sophistication and refinement. SsangYong Rexton features include a new 1998 cc, 4 cylinder common rail diesel e-XDi200 active engine to power this monster, with a maximum power of 154 bhp. The dashboard of the Rexton is quite classy with leather all around, while the central console comes with wooden finish. The music system fitted in the SUV has a CD player, fitted with USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth phone connectivity along. Additionally, the SsangYong Rexton gets leather wrapped steering, with mounted audio and phone controls. Cruise control has also been provided for smooth, stress-free drives. Standard Advanced safety features will include Traction Control, Electronic Stability Program, Hill Hold and Hill Descent Control along with ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, and 6 airbags

The SUV gets lighter shades and improved plastics as compared to the previous version. Its front bumper is completely new as compared to the current version, giving it a much more aggressive demeanour. A new nose with new projector headlamps, LED-surrounds and LED fog lamps has been given to the vehicle. Integrated LED turn indicators have been provided on the rear view mirrors. Besides these, there are many other SsangYong Rexton features that are bound to capture attention of all, be it car experts or buyers.

As per the information provided by CarTrade, the 2012 SsangYong Rexton reviews have sparked a debate in the media, considering the availability of the latest safety and security features at its price. The new beast from the M&M Ssangyong stable has to counteract dominant forces such as Toyota and Ford, in this segment. Interestingly, the launch of the SsangYong Rexton falls just before the Diwali festive season in India, which may help the company record decent numbers till November 2012.

As the Mahindra Scorpio and the XUV 500 has done in the past, the new SsangYong Rexton launch is capable of taking the SUV war to a completely new level. This is in line with a paradigm shift towards Utility Vehicles that seems to be taking place in the Indian automobile market.
