Millennial Doctors Are Now Using WhatsApp To Communicate With Their Patients

Millennials are notorious for relying on the latest technologies and these technologies are rewarding us by enhancing their safety policies and making continuous improvements to their products. This is how doctors are turning to WhatsApp to connect with their patients and other doctors.

You've got an IM from your doctor

WhatsApp announced its new encryption system in April, which draw attention to many law enforcement agencies around the world, but it also draw doctor's attention, especially in Brazil. With Zika virus making hundreds of victims, Brazilian doctors started to use WhatsApp to track the virus, inform their patients about the symptoms and send CT scans of their patients. According to Cello Health Insight, 9 in 10 Brazilian doctors are using the app to communicate with their patients and with other doctors. In US, doctors are yet to embrace this new means of communication, as they are still worried about violating the privacy regulations, HIPAA.

The Importance Of Cognitive Thinking In Christianity

Cognitive thinking is so much more that simply memorising facts and figures, particularly when it comes to the belief in Christianity.Cognition is the process involved in knowing which includes perception and judgement within the mind. This form of thinking involves the knowledge and skills required for quick and effective learning, while thinking abstractly to make important decisions with logical reasoning. This is exceptionally important when it comes to religion, as it helps to develop skills like critical thinking and decision making, and in some ways this is made easier later in life.

Benefits Of Cognitive Thinking In Christianity

While cognitive thinking is generally developed young in life, it can also be nurtured throughout later life. While the ability to read, write and communicate effectively come from aspects of cognitive thinking, understanding is one of the key benefits of this form of thinking to allow both children and adults the freedom of choice to believe in Christianity and understand it.

5 Ways Women Can Manage The Stress Of Running A Business

As a woman entrepreneur, the fact is that you are likely to be forging a new path, wherever you go. While women have always worked and owned businesses to some degree or another, the number of women owning businesses has greatly expanded in recent years. This is good news for the economy, and for women at large, but it can also be stressful.

Women tend to have a harder time than their male counterparts getting adequate funding for their businesses, and they may struggle to find mentors who understand the specific challenges that face women business owners. This is especially true from women who have multiple marginalizations – women who are also people of color, LGBT, or disabled, for example.

These five tips can help women business owners manage and cope with the stress that comes from being your own boss.

Find someone to talk to
Whether it’s your best friend or a therapist, if you have significant stress in your life, you need somewhere to talk about that stress which isn’t your primary relationship. While your partner can be an amazing support, it can be hard for them to be entirely focused on your struggles when the financial health of the business supports them as well. FULL POST

4 Indications That Your Business Needs a Mobile App

If you are an owner of a business, you must be wondering if your business actually needs a mobile app? Especially if you have a responsive website that loads well on mobile platforms, you might question the necessity of investing time and money on a dedicated app.

Despite your reservations, you probably will need an app to stay competitive if you have started to regularly witness one of the following conditions: -

1. When Your Customers Expect Your Business to have an App

Consumers have demonstrated an increased preference for mobile apps over websites while engaging with their favorite brands. Pay attention to what your customers say, and learn about their preferences- both said and unsaid. For example, frequent questions about online ordering, making reservations online or accessing account information could indicate the existence of demand for a branded app from your business.

Follow up on this perception demand by using formal and informal channels to get a better idea about the functions and features your app would need to provide value to your customers. When you know how people will use your app and how the app might affect your customers’ experience, you can begin planning a mobile strategy. If customers will shop more frequently, buy more products from you or receive better service by tapping on their phone than they would if they had to browse to your website, you should invest in a mobile app. FULL POST

Spread the Wings: Improve Your Inventory Management right now

Imagine that a web store you’re running is a human body. In this case inventory will definitely be its heart. As a vitally important part of the system it needs to be treated properly. It is always tricky to find out the ultimate supply vs. demand balance, but that is the risk you take entering the retail market.

What can be worse than offering a product and then wasting your customers’ time for lame excuses, such as “sorry, the item you’ve chosen is out of stock”. Gosh, then why do you still have it in your catalog? Probably, you’ll never ever see this customer again. And to tell you the truth, I can’t blame him.

Though, looking from your perspective, I clearly realize that more diverse, comprehensive and simply big inventory presupposes a larger warehouse, higher transportation expenses, more working hours and, the last but not the least, more money.

How not to screw up the business of your life and improve your inventory?

  • Carefully look around searching for optimization tools. I’m sure that you’ll find a perfect software solution that will help you estimate supply and demand variability and calculate the replenishment volume to save your inventory from all the variables.
  • Equip yourself with a powerful analytics tool, working under one single platform. Forget about excel. The days when you managed your inventory using those holly spreadsheets are gone. Today you can operate floods of information under one solution, supporting your inventory and facilitating all the business issues you face every day. You can even find simple but very handy tools that will help you build up your own backend navigation process by adding the most popular pages you use (the catalog, the customers, etc.) to bookmarks in the admin panel.
  • Differentiate your products. At least, try to clarify the top 20 percent of your best sales that usually make 80 percent of profit and make sure that you always have them available for your customers. It will help you maximize sales and avoid the crucial mistake, mentioned above.
  • In God we trust, the rest we check. Trustworthy suppliers are a pure blessing, but they are like some rare specious, others need careful control. Sometimes they miss all the deadlines, sometimes you get only a half of the ordered goods. Anyway, the better you track your suppliers’ performance, the less chances to fail you get.
  • Don’t forget the lag-behinders. Concentrating on your top sales you may easily lose track of products that are not so popular in your list. Ok, I know that these items may irritate you, occupy the place, which could be used for trendy merchandise, however, they can be also well-managed and put on sale.
  • Find a time slot for slotting. I mean that you’d better slot your products properly, according to their popularity among the customers. Locate your top sales closer to the docks or simply in the most accessible locations. Going further, if two or more items have a lot of chances to be sold together as associated goods – it makes sense to put them closer to each other.

Though there is much more to say about inventory management, the ‘heart’ does not compose the whole body. You should not forget about your ‘eyes’ your salespeople, your team, who should have a deep knowledge of your inventory, as well as a clear vision of the market in general, being able to navigate among the products they sell and the products that can complement your offering. A well-equipped salesperson with a deep knowledge of the subject can easily persuade your customer to change his mind in favor of the product you offer. To do so, you need to provide your store managers with a good fully-functional store management tool that will always be on hand to speed up your sales and improve business performance.
