I just came from Manila for a 5-day trip and was surprised to see the sprouting high-rise condominiums at Taguig , Mandaluyong and Quezon City. I received a brochure of one of the condominiums when we had a side trip at the Mall of Asia. The space is too small but can be maximize depending on how one will decorate and put together the furniture.

I have learned through the brochure and the sales agent that most of condo units owners engaged the services of Ethan Allen Global, Inc. It is a North American furniture chain with almost 300 stores across the United States, Canada  and United Kingdom. Now, they have stores in the Philippines to cater the tastes of Filipinos.

You Are Wasting Money

If you are still using a standard fax machine, then you are wasting money in ways you never could have imagined. The most obvious wastes of money are: the monthly cost of the phone line for the machine, the cost of paper and ink, and the electricity that the machine uses. But there is also the loss in productivity that can add up over time.

To use a fax machine, your staff members have to first wait for the machine to become available. Then, leave their desks to use the machine, wait for the machine to finish sending or receiving a fax before they can use it, wait for their fax to transmit, and then wait for a confirmation report.

With online faxing, all of this is done instantly from each staff member’s desktop. You no longer need the ongoing expense of a fax machine, and you can eliminate lost productivity by, significantly reducing the time it takes to use a fax machine.

Standard Faxing Is Not Mobile

How many times have you had to track down a staff member who was on the road, just to force them to find someplace to accept a fax? Online fax allows you and your staff, to send and receive faxes instantly through any mobile computing device. Your field workers have the information they need, and it is all done in a professional manner.

Electronic Filing Is Easier Than Standard Filing

When you file away faxes sent and received through standard fax, you start to develop a system that can take up several file cabinets and get out of control. With online fax, all of your filing is done in electronic files that can be easily stored on a hard drive, backed up for safety and printed whenever you need a hard copy.

Standard fax is still used all over the world as a way that businesses transmit data. But when you mix fax with the advances made in online technology, you are using a tool that will help your business to succeed and grow.



Architectural Finishes

Posted on
Remember my post about the construction of a two-storey residential building I am supervising? It’s already 6 months in the making but it is still not completed. On going works are finishing of masonry, electrical wiring and plumbing works. The house is big that it already incurred an estimated amount of P 2.5 Million. Imagine with that amount it is still not completed.

Two weeks ago, I talked with the owner and we discussed about the architectural finished like the window glass, the metal works of the gate and fence , the exterior bricks and of course the bathroom vanities. We flipped through the pages of a home furnishing magazine and we were not able to find the owner’s desired bathroom fixtures. Today, I found a site that supplies all kinds of home and office furniture from rustic to western furniture. I hope the owner will be able to decide with-in this week all details concerning the architectural finishes.
