Global Humanitarian Organization World Vision Now Live on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012


Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 06, 2014

Leading ERP, CRM, Point of Sale, and eCommerce solution provider Ignify is pleased to announce its continued partnership with humanitarian organization World Vision International in implementing its Mongolia division’s upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. World Vision serves about 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the globe, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Ignify has worked with several different World Vision divisions on Microsoft Dynamics AX implementations, specifically Mongolia, Senegal, Bangladesh, Somalia, and Zambia.

“The non-profit sector values cost-efficiency and timeliness more than most other industries since each dollar saved can be used to support the most vulnerable,” said Vincent Edwards, National Director at World Vision, Mongolia. “With our Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 upgrade, World Vision Mongolia is able to further extend our outreach with enhanced inventory management and item procurement processes.”

Before 2010, World Vision had some issues with their manual supply chain management system. Communication problems between area development programs (ADPs) and the national office were common, which resulted in some negative audits, incorrect purchase orders and purchase requisitions. In 2010, Ignify implemented World Vision Mongolia’s first instance of Microsoft Dynamics AX to handle these issues more effectively.

With Microsoft Dynamics AX, World Vision gained tighter control over managing donations and Gifts-in-Kind supplies, enabling team members to quickly put in requests for certain items, receive approval of the request after checking for availability and location, and then have the items issued from the warehouse to the team members.

With the help of Ignify, World Vision adapted Microsoft Dynamics AX purchase requisition functionality to fulfill an item requisition process that is similar, but completely different, from that of a traditional business. Inventory transfers are used to manage inventory from the country office to the area development offices, and the sales order and purchase order functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX is used to relive and consume inventory. Supplies are issued through sales orders while donations are received through the purchase order functionality.

This better understanding of which items are needed, and where items are located, ensures that both resources and staff time are budgeted appropriately.

New functionality that is now live in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 includes:

Inventory management including implementation of full FIFO inventory valuation method, inventory item movement, and regular inventory cycle counts.
Budgeting and procurement planning based on the customizations developed for World Vision Bangladesh.
Migrating printout reports from Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
“Ignify is very proud to work with an organization that provides relief to millions of people worldwide,” said Sandeep Walia, Chief Executive Officer of Ignify. “Being able to support World Vision’s remarkable humanitarian achievements and goals means a great deal to the Ignify team, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

Kodak news in 2011

2011-9-30
According to the Wall Street Journal, once the optical photography giant Eastman Kodak has hired professional supplies for bankruptcy reorganization lawyers and may soon is filing for bankruptcy protection. Affected by this news, Kodak shares closed on Friday plunged 53.84% reported $ 0.910 per share.

2011-10-3 Kodak News
Kodak, which delivered the first consumer camera in 1888, denied it had a bankruptcy plan, saying it was committed to meeting its obligations and is still looking for ways to “monetize” its patent portfolio. News drives the company’s stock price rising more than 70% from Monday’s close.

1990s peak, Kodak was once the market value of over $ 30 billion, however, due to decreased demand for cameras and film cameras with the rise of smart phones, Kodak’s market value has dropped 98 percent, has less than 600 million U.S. dollar.

Kodak in the past seven years, there has been six years into the red. But as the century-old Kodak, after all, even a died thin camel looks larger than a horse, Kodak announced last month it would sell a number of patented technologies, the company owns a number of potential buyers to sign a confidentiality agreement on this. Preparation sold 1100 patents expecting to bring Kodak’s patents up to 20 billion dollars in revenue.

In the Web Store in www.Kodak.com , there are some products such as Kodak EasyShare Digital Cameras, Kodak Video Cameras, Frames, AiO Printers. In Kodak Digital Cameras, new product: EASYSHARE Camera / Z5010, EASYSHARE TOUCH Camera / M5370, EASYSHARE Camera / M5350. In Digital Video Cameras, new product: PLAYSPORT Video Camera, BURTON Edition / Zx5, PLAYFULL Waterproof Video Camera.

All of output Video from Kodak EasyShare cameras is MOV format. MOV Video is an apple QuickTime video format, suit for apple Mac system OS. And you can easily import Kodak Video to iMovie, put Kodak MOV to Final Cut Pro or Final Cut express.

And some of Kodak Video Cameras, such as Kodak Zi8, Kodak Playsport Zx3 output format are also MOV format. In order to fit for more Mobile devices such as iPhone iPad blackberry, the new Kodak Video Camera (PLAYSPORT Video Camera, BURTON Edition / Zx5, Kodak Playfull, Playtouch) changes the output format from MOV to MP4. So you can put Kodak Video to iPad, play Kodak Video on iPhone.

But all the output video from Kodak cameras cannot be imported to WMM, if you want to edit Kodak MP4 to Windows Movie Maker or import Kodak MOV to windows movie maker. Some error will happen. So you should convert Kodak video to WMV. Video Converter Kodak is a video converter for Kodak Cameras, which you can install it both Windows 7 and Mac OS Lion.

Periods of history can always tell the people some of the stories, Kodak is the same, it was also brilliant, and many of the best film was Kodak’s presence becomes a classic. Kodak has been in a hundred years of history, and I hope from my heart it is an early out of dilemma, helping mankind to create more legend. People is always selfish, if the day really goes out of Kodak, and the Kodak Video Converter is not long a life.

The Three Phases Of A Traditional Bangladesh Marriage

Marriage is one of the most auspicious moment that everyone looks forward to go through in their life. This is a common social institution that is followed by everyone around the world thought he customs and traditions attached to it may differ in which some may get completed in a day like the in Kerala, India or some may span for several days like the Bangladesh Marriage.

A Bangladesh Marriage can be of two types – Hindu Marriage and a Muslim Marriage in which the former is quite elaborative and the latter, though has many similarities has little less rituals. In both the types of marriages there are three phases namely the pre-wedding, wedding and the post wedding phase that spans over a period of 3 -5 days.

In the first phase when the match for the bride and groom are chosen, a back check is made to ensure that both of them are not related and are not descendants of the same lineage. This is done by a priest who checks the Kundalis (Horoscopes) of the bride and the groom. Once assured, the bride and groom get engaged through a ritual performed by a priest.

Next comes the function of Gaye Holud in which the bride’s family & grooms family take turns to visit each others house (without taking the bride or the groom) and put on turmeric paste all around the bride’s and groom’s body. This is followed by Mehendi Sondha in which the bride’s hands and feets are painted with henna to beautify her look. The groom’s family bring along the bridal outfit, jewelry, sweetmeat and many gift items for this ritual.

On the main wedding day of a Bangladesh Marriage the groom comes in a procession to the bride’s place and is welcomed with great pomp by blowing conch shells, playing the bells and as a mark of welcome ululation is done by the women. This is followed by the seating of the bride and the groom on the mandap (dais) and the priest performs various rituals amidst chanting of sacred mantras (hymns) and finally the bride’s father performs a ritual in which he ceremonially hands over his daughter to the groom and this is called the Kanya Sampradaan. This is followed by a seven round to be taken by the bride nad the groom to finalize them as a couple with the Agni God as the witness to it. The marriage is said to be successfully completed.

The couple is then first received at the bride’s home followed by a feast and then there is the send off ceremony of the bride (Vidayi). The couple then reach the groom’s place where the bride, while entering here in-law’s home for the first time has to dip her feet in a red colored solution (lac dye) and move forward into the house leaving her footprints.

On the third day of the wedding, a reception is hosted and the families friends and relatives attend from both the sides and enjoy a get together and bless the couple. And on this day the couple begin their true wedding life journey on a literal flower bed.

New Findings of Independent Review of Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety Indicate Major Progress in Efforts to Improve Safety in Bangladesh Garment Factories

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) September 19, 2014

Below are remarks made by the Hon. Ellen Tauscher, Board Chair, Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety during the Bipartisan Policy Center workshop and discussion in Washington, D.C.

Sept. 17, 2014.

“Thank you all for joining us today. I’m Ellen Tauscher, former Member of the U.S. Congress and Independent Chair of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety—a position I’ve had the honor of holding since last August, shortly after the Alliance was established.

Today’s event marks an important milestone—and a ‘full-circle moment’—in the progress of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety.

As most of you know, the Alliance was originally organized through the U.S. Bipartisan Policy Center, which hosted discussions that were convened and chaired by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and former U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe—both of whom are here and hosting us again today.

It is only appropriate that I should start by thanking the Bipartisan Policy Center and these two great leaders for the conversations that they started more than a year ago. Their leadership led us down the path we are on today—toward lasting safety reform for the entire Bangladesh garment industry.

Everyone present in this room already knows the critically important role that the Bangladesh garment industry plays in supporting the livelihoods of nearly four million people—80% of whom are women. It is a major driver of the Bangladesh economy, accounting for 80% of the nation’s export earnings.

When our work began more than a year ago, it was triggered by a series of factory tragedies that should never have happened in the first place. The reforms we are working so hard to achieve are long overdue – in this day and age, no one, no matter where they live, should have to risk their life in order to go to work and provide for their family.

That is why the Alliance – along with its member companies – has approached this work as an urgent issue of human rights and social justice.

When Senators Mitchell and Snowe convened the discussions that led to the formation of the Alliance, it was because there was broad recognition that the United States—our government, our private sector, our civil society resources—must do its part to bring about lasting safety reforms in the Bangladesh garment industry.

From the very beginning, Alliance member companies committed nearly $ 50 million to a worker safety fund and made an additional $ 100 million available in affordable access to capital to help factories implement safety upgrades. In recent weeks, we’ve approved another fund that will help leverage—and guarantee—up to an additional $ 20 million in support for factory owners through low-cost financing.

Fourteen months after our launch, I am pleased to report that the Alliance and its member companies are succeeding in their effort. Despite being global competitors, these companies have united their expertise and resources with uncommon dedication. It has been a privilege to work with them, and to witness real and lasting change result from unprecedented partnerships.

When we arrived on the ground in Bangladesh, the garment industry and the nation was still reeling from the Rana Plaza disaster. There was very little in the way of organized or strategic planning—let alone the necessary partnerships—to create systemic safety reforms in the industry. There was no harmonized standard for safety inspections; no systematic process for reviewing and recommending factories for closure; and no plausible way for factory owners to get the access to capital they might need to follow through on remediation plans.

Our very first step was to develop a harmonized inspection Standard that would be adopted by the National Tripartite Committee and the European Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. We did more than just participate in those discussions; we led the process that resulted in a strict new Standard for safety that is now in use by all inspection programs on the ground.

In those early days, we made many pledges for our first year in operation – and today, we can confidently say that we have met them. To date, we have:


Inspected 100% of the factories from which Alliance members source—587 factories in total
Delivered an updated safety training to more than 1.1 million factory managers, workers, and security personnel; sample surveys among workers show that the training has already had a significant impact on their knowledge of fire safety
Begun remediation in 50% of Alliance factories, and closed or partially closed 14 factories that required it
Compensated more than 1,000 workers displaced as a result of factory remediation; as many of you know, the Alliance’s pledge to provide 50% of lost wages for up to 4 months is a key differentiator of our approach

We have also begun the rollout of a helpline that enables workers to report concerns without fear of reprisal. We amended our Member’s Agreement to make it crystal clear that workers in factories from which Alliance companies source have the right to refuse work in conditions they feel are unsafe—period.

We kept these promises while building extraordinary partnerships with the government and industry leaders in Bangladesh that led to additional critical contributions to safety reform:

We led efforts to design and launch the first-ever International Expo on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, to make the process of purchasing safety equipment easier and better informed for factory owners and managers. The event was so successful that a second event is being planned for this December, with more than 5,000 participants expected.

We advocated successfully with the Bangladesh government to reduce import tariffs on safety equipment—tariffs that were in some cases as costly as the goods themselves, putting repairs again out of reach for factory owners. Today, factory owners can focus more of their resources on completing thorough, and thoughtful, remediation programs.

These additional avenues for change—working with related industries and stakeholders to remove political and social barriers—are a defining element of our approach, and we continue to seek them every day.

In fact, today I am pleased to announce that we have just signed an MOU with the National Fire Protection Agency. Our collaboration will ensure that best practices in fire and electrical safety that are used around the world are also adopted in Bangladesh. Specifically, the partnership is designed:

To ensure that key stakeholders are made aware of NFPA codes, standards and resources;
To develop effective training and education programs for factory workers and managers, including classroom and e-learning opportunities; and
To develop new ways of communicating with employers and workers in the RMG sector about key workplace hazards.

We are just one year in to a five-year commitment—and the hardest work is certainly still ahead of us. Successful and comprehensive remediation is essential to ensure that the Bangladesh garment industry can safely serve its ultimate purpose: to serve as a central driver of the Bangladesh economy and a critical pathway out of poverty for millions of Bangladeshi women.

We are pleased with the progress at our one-year mark—and we believe the right plan and partners are in place to continue this momentum and create lasting change in Bangladesh. But we also seek to constantly strengthen our approach—so that we leave behind the process and capacity that is needed to ensure long-term and sustainable changes to factory safety.

Today, we are here to conduct a one-year assessment of the Alliance’s progress. We take these discussions and this opportunity for honest, constructive feedback very seriously. In particular, we invite input and inquiry from you, Senators Mitchell and Snowe, and pledge that we will be transparent and candid with our responses.”
