jComply SaaS aims to provide a highly secure platform to create and manage compliance records, it is protected by a multi-layered security model.

According to the SOURCEWIRE, “Tighter government regulations within the public and financial sectors for example, mean organisations need an efficient way to manage and dictate new compliance policies; however it’s increasingly challenging for compliance managers to make sure end-users are adopting and complying with policies,” said Sultan Noori, CEO at Tabaq Software. “With the added complexity of constrained budgets, compliance managers need a cost effective solution which not only helps organisations manage policies, but also communicates these to employees and tests end users.”

“jComply offers organisations a reliable and expert record management system, in addition to an e-Learning resource for compliance managers to effectively measure compliance understanding. Responsibility is passed from compliance managers to end-users, helping organisations protect themselves against internal negligence or employee threats.”

The main reason for adoption appeared to be cost-effectiveness and ease of deployment as primary reasons for adoption.

“IT spending is decreasing and organisations are more cautious than ever, however as compliance regulation increases, they require a solution now. By offering jComply SaaS, we’ll be able to help organisations get the compliance solution they need now, at a cost-effective price, helping them to battle through the current economic climate,” said Noori.

Office Managers Bringing Added Value to Business

According to the SOURCEWIRE, Hays, specialist recruiter, announced that although the market for senior office managers has slowed during the last quarter, opportunities still exist for suitably qualified applicants, and that the most important is, the increase is particularly noticeable in the professional and public services sectors.

Geoff Collings, Regional Director at Hays Office Support admits that "Market conditions are dictating salary levels and job volumes at present but demand still exists for the most highly skilled and experienced office managers."

It is very important the applicants to be flexible, in terms of salary, location and industry sector. Geoff continued, "It is definitely worth considering smaller and medium sized enterprises, which may still be growing". 

Office managers who have the broadest range of skills are best positioned as employers can benefit from the commercial experience that they can bring. "Those candidates who can demonstrate quantifiable examples of the value they bring to a business are sought after. Examples include procurement, tenders and contract negotiations, which can help save costs, drive efficiencies and impact profitability," explained Geoff. 

Nowadays firms often restructure and merge roles, that’s why there is a requirement for individuals who have experience across a range of areas and office managers can fit the bill perfectly. It is worth mentioning that facilities management, procurement and contract management, secretarial management and first line IT support can all fall under the remit of the senior office manager. 

"Office managers need to think on their feet and be approachable, have excellent prioritisation skills and liaise with internal and external stakeholders alike," Geoff emphasised. 



How much do you pay your staff? Is that enough or not? Even though it is individual and differs from country to country and city to city, businesses can check quickly and easily that they are compliant with national minimum wage legislation coming into force in April.

According to the SOURCEWIRE, the launch of a National Minimum Wage Calculator on the Business Link website, aims to help employers ensure that they are paying their workers the wage that they are entitled to.

Michaela Fitzgerald from says: “One of our priorities at Business Link is to make complying with legislation simple for business. The National Minimum Wage Calculator enables employers to work out how much they need to pay their staff for the hours that they work and provides them with an authoritative, trust-worthy source of help. It benefits both staff and employers as it ensures that workers receive the correct amount while employers do not risk incurring financial penalties for getting the calculation wrong.”

Employment Relations Minister Pat McFadden says: “The minimum wage calculator is the latest free tool available from Business Link that will save time and money for employers. It tells firms quickly and simply whether their workers have been paid, what they are entitled to or how much they are owed if not. All employers should be aware of new penalties for breaking minimum wage law that come into force in April. The vast majority of employers want to do the right thing by their staff and this calculator will help prevent them from inadvertently breaching the rules.”

There is no company without a marketing department aiming to reach maximum target audience in a very low cost. Theoretically it is possible but practically it is not cheap. As admitted on PRWeb, because of the economy, companies are cutting costs while seeking out longer term marketing strategies online. Here we have recipe of William Starrett, an ecommerce and lead conversion expert helping businesses achieve higher return on their investment.

"Even in a recession, a plan to get targeted traffic is the golden key to increasing Internet sales," said William Starrett, Marketing Strategist and Director of

According to Starrett, informative articles and relevant content of successful websites gain more targeted traffic. The reason for these sites get more traffic is that they have incoming links pointing to them from other websites - a proven strategy with roots in Search Engine Optimization or SEO.

"Right now, businesses are discovering how to cut costs while still attracting the very best traffic over the long haul; those visitors who will most likely become loyal buyers," Starrett furthered.

According to PRWeb, Starrett's consulting firm, Richardson, Texas based Wide Open Media recently launched a pilot program called Clicks Wanted ( Aiming to help businesses in their effort to gain more online sales, increase their website traffic, and rank higher in keyword search engine results.

"The basic formula to achieve sustainable authority online in any market is this: high quality content and incoming links to your web site," Starrett detailed.

Starrett explained, "While both people and search engines are attracted to articles and information, incoming links act as individual votes of popularity. Links and content are vital to ranking on the first page of keyword searches."

Outsourcing is admitted the most economical and convenient way to conquer these time intensive tasks by most business owners, and having a team of researchers and writers devoted to the project that is often the fastest way to begin achieving results.

What is the secret of articles vitality to traffic and sales, Starrett responded, "A body of informative content can be repurposed and reused for other types of promotions down the road. For that matter, they can become products themselves. Articles, even at 500 to 750 words each, are excellent for basing our effort to share our knowledge with prospects as a presell and with clients to manage consumption."

"Every article, every link, every action we take will only help return even more on the investment already made. This isn't single action marketing like PPC or banner ads where you only pay for a click or a page view. Our goal here is to build a legacy and help you become the go-to authority in your market," Starrett shared.
