Plugin to the World!

WordPress is not the world’s most popular web platform without good reason. With WordPress, if you’re looking to achieve something specific, there’s usually a plug-in to help you do it! Plug-ins are specific software tools or modules designed to deliver or supplement a specific piece of functionality. So, for example if you’re looking include attractive links to your Facebook pages or display some snazzy tables on your website – there are plug-ins to help you do it. The good news is that plug-in developers generally subscribe to “open source” software development principles – in other words there is no charge for using the plug-ins. This is good news for users and developers alike, as more people use the plug-in, more developers will contribute to it meaning that the most popular plug-ins have evolved in, some cases to complete solutions. For example WooCommerce has grown to be such a powerful and flexible e-Commerce solution that it claims to power over 30% of all online stores. These claims are not without merit, WooCommerce alongside WooThemes delivers an incredibly flexible e-commerce solution almost straight out of the box! With virtually no development requirements a complete e-commerce solution can be up and running in a fraction of the time there would be taken to develop the complete application from scratch. Another area that has benefited from the open source revolution would be e-learning. Moodle, with the tagline “Community driven, globally supported” – has evolved to be a complete solution. Their mission “To provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments.” – again all...

A Contractual Dispute involving a Partridge in a Peartree

Our contract lawyer (See last years best wishes from out contract lawyer) has had to step in to help resolve an issue in relation to a number of unsolicited gifts,  some of which involve livestock including a partridge in a pear tree and two turtle doves. Also If initial reports are to be believed, an element of human trafficking (8 maids a milking  and 9 pipers playing to mention but a few.) Records from within the activity audit available from Collabor8online, have been of assistance in the resolution of this particular contractual dispute.         Dearest Bob, I went to the door today and the postman delivered a partridge in a pear tree. What a thoroughly delightful gift. I couldn’t have been more surprised. With deepest love and devotion, Agnita  Dearest Bob,  Today the postman brought your very sweet gift. Just imagine two turtle doves. I’m just delighted at your very thoughtful gift. They are just adorable. All my love, Agnita Dearest Bob, Oh! Aren’t you the extravagant one. Now I really must protest. I don’t deserve such generosity, three French hens. They are just darling but I must insist, you’ve been too kind. Love, Agnita Dear Bob,  Today the postman delivered 4 calling birds. Now really, they are beautiful but don’t you think enough is enough. You’re being too romantic. Affectionately, Agnita Dearest Bob, What a surprise. Today the postman delivered 5 golden rings; one for every finger. You’re just impossible, but I love it. Frankly, all those birds squawking were beginning to get on my nerves. All my love, Agnita   Dear Bob, When I opened the door there were actually 6 geese a-laying on my front steps. So, you’re...

Chinese Walls – Where on earth did that term come from?

  A Chinese wall is a barrier that separates two or more groups, usually as a means of restricting the flow of information. Originating in the financial services sector, the term was used to describe an “invisible” barrier between different departments, perhaps separating a department gives advice on buying shares from another that advises on takeovers and mergers. The aim being to avoid a conflict-of-interest.   The use of the term has been criticised as having an “ethnic focus” and as such may be discriminatory, however, further investigation reveals that the term refers to the Chinese tradition of employing paper screens as interior dividers within buildings that, despite the being intrinsically ineffective as physical barriers, were nonetheless respected as part of a code of honour. The term has now become a popular method of describing confidentiality between clients as well as between different teams from different companies working on the same project. This is surprisingly common, you may for example provide an excellent service to a company in a particular sector, given that your business has strived so hard to achieve excellence in a particular sector, it would be foolish to exclude yourself from providing that same high-level service to other companies operating in the same area, but you may wish to keep the fact that you work for different competing companies to yourself. Such barriers are also common on the supply side. You may have an excellent relationship with one supplier, but common business sense dictates that having a broad base of supply options represents best practice, once again you may wish to keep the fact that you purchase from...

So, who’s in your Circle of Trust?

In life, as well as in business there are always people you trust. Family, friends business associates, perhaps people who you’ve worked with the many years. Perhaps you’ve learned to depend on them, perhaps they depend on you but either way, they tick the the Like, Know and Trust boxes. With these people you’re happy to share. Information, documentation, projects, files, facts and figures, some of it no doubt sensitive, perhaps some is positively confidential, but within your circle of trust you are happy to share. Equally, there are people with whom you would prefer not to share. Perhaps not even the time of day! It may be that you have to share some information with them, but not everything. Collabor8online lets you decide who is in your circle of trust and lets you share your information with them, privately, safely and securely. What is more, whilst you may also share information with people outside your circle of trust, Collabor8online does so in such a way that they do not know that they’ve been excluded. To put it another way, Barry (from accounts) does not know that he is not in your circle of trust, most especially he doesn’t know who is.
