leave a comment »

Team of highly-trained DHL volunteers from Australia and New Zealand to assist in coordinating relief logistics at Suva Airport

SUVA, Fiji and SINGAPORE  /PRNewswire/ — Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world’s leading logistics provider, has deployed their Disaster Response Team (DRT) in Suva Airport, Fiji, following the landfall of Tropical Cyclone Winston. An initial team of seven volunteers will arrive today and will work alongside the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) to coordinate relief logistics out of Suva Airport.

Belinda Tan, Vice President, Corporate Communications and Responsibility, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa, DHL, said: “Cyclone Winston’s impact is becoming more apparent, and we see that the scale and severity of damage requires immediate response. Our team of highly trained DRT volunteers will provide specialist logistics support at the Suva  Airport to facilitate the fast and efficient distribution of aid to the NGOs for their further distribution to those in need.”

Mark Butcher, Area Manager for GoHelp in Oceania is leading the DRT deployment in Fiji, with DHL volunteers from Australia and New Zealand who will be based at the Suva Airport to provide logistical expertise and support to ensure the smooth delivery of cargo and relief aid to NGOs for their further distribution to the communities.

Carl Schelfhaut, Head of International Relations and Disaster Management, Asia Pacific, Deutsche Post DHL Group, said: “In any natural disaster situation, airports need to avoid bottlenecks if they are to deliver timely relief to those whose basic necessities and livelihoods have been dealt a major blow. Our volunteers are no stranger to the complexity posed by Fiji’s myriad islands, having managed everything from unloading to forward transportation of relief goods when Vanuatu was struck by Cyclone Pam last year. That experience will prove invaluable in reaching Fiji’s most affected communities and helping them cope with the fallout of Cyclone Winston.”

Apart from the deployment of the DRT, DHL Express, with the support of Mark Komene, Country Manager for DHL Express in Fiji, has provided four vehicles to assist in aid distribution in Nadi and Fiji’s capital city Suva. DHL has also designated its offices across Fiji as “public drop points” where members of the public can donate clothes, blankets, outdoor equipment, food, and other aid resources.

GoHelp is the disaster management program of Deutsche Post DHL Group and comprises disaster preparedness through the program “Get Airports Ready for Disaster” (GARD) and disaster response via the Disaster Response Teams (DRTs). In a partnership with the United Nations since 2005, Deutsche Post DHL Group provides the UN with access to its core competence in logistics, its global network and the know-how of its employees free of charge.

To date, GARD was implemented jointly with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to more than 30 local airports in 16 countries: Armenia, Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, India, Indonesia,Jordan, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mauritius, Nepal, Panama, Peru, the Philippines, Turkey and Sri Lanka. In cooperation with UN OCHA, Deutsche Post DHL Group also established a global network of Disaster Response Teams (DRT) to support airports in case of a natural disaster. The DRT network consists of over 400 trained DHL volunteers, who can be deployed within 72 hours. Since 2005, the DRTs have been deployed over 30 times worldwide, with the most recent deployment to Nepal following two catastrophic earthquakes in April 2015.

Mahindra Comviva Launches IRIS, a Monetization Platform for CSPs

leave a comment »

NEW DELHI /PRNewswire/ —

IRIS to Provide Seamless Recharge Experience to Retailers and Subscribers

Mahindra Comviva, the global leader in mobility solutions, today announced the launch of IRIS, the newest addition to its Revenue Plus suite – a monetization platform for CSPs. ‘Incremental Revenues through Incremental Sales’ (IRIS) unifies retailer and subscriber recharge processes by providing a seamless, congruent and concurrent recharge experience to both the parties. Subscribers are segmented across various categories and provided with an interactive best fit offer. The aim is to create a better value proposition and increase subscriber revenue. IRIS gives the flexibility of treating each customer and retailer differently and rewards their unique combination at various levels of the upgrade.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130626/625127 )

IRIS is an integrated channel management solution embedded with workforce automation, which encompasses various functions like retailer incentivization, retailer self-help and channel self-help. It enhances retailer incentivization by tuning the value of each reward to the value/effort of the upgrade brought in from each customer. Further, it aids customers in service discovery through its customer self-help feature. Channel self-help one of the key features of IRIS enables telcos in broadcasting real time relevant sales and distribution related information to the entire field force. The availability of real time information at the retailer and field executive level provides the impetus needed in the field for accelerating action planning and productivity.

Announcing the launch of IRIS, Mr. Amit Sanyal, Assistant VP & Head, Consumer Value Solutions Business, Mahindra Comviva said, The effort put in by the operator for quicker ROI, revenue enhancement and incremental margins are often hampered by the lackluster approach followed by retailers who actually sell the products. Retailers are the sole influencers at the moment of truth which is the point of sale. At this point of opportunity, they can up/cross sell a pack, assist the customer in pack discovery or promote the operators brand over the competitors. Incentivizing retailers is a must to make them operators brand ambassadors.

Operators across the globe have shown interest in our IRIS solution as it helps them to unify the subscriber and retailer recharge journey as well as garner incremental revenue resulting in higher customer and trade satisfaction, further added Amit.

  • Tom Anliker appointed Vice-President Marketing and Sales Europe
  • World premiere of BORGWARD BX5 and BX6 TS in Geneva

Stuttgart automobile manufacturer Borgward is to produce cars in Germany once again. “BORGWARD is fully aware of its responsibilities as a German company and of its own tradition of success. We will therefore be making a decision regarding our production location in Germany before the year is out,” said Ulrich Walker, CEO of BORGWARD Group AG, in the run-up to the Geneva International Motor Show on Monday evening. BORGWARD celebrated the world premiere of two new models in Geneva: the BX5 and the BX6 TS.

The company is currently conducting a feasibility study to scrutinize potential locations, supply chains and processes.

Celebrity Cook Nadja Piatka Partners Holista to Develop and Market Healthy Low-GI Muffins in U.S. and Canada

leave a comment »

PERTH, Australia, KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia and BUFFALO, N.Y.  /PRNewswire/ — Holista CollTech Limited (“Holista”) and Nadja Foods LLC (“Nadja Foods”) —  baked goods supplier for chains such as McDonald’s and Subway — will co-develop clean-label “low-GI” muffins for distribution in the U.S. and Canada.

Nadja Foods’ founder, president and CEO Nadja Piatka will use Australian-listed Holista’s (ASX: HCT) proprietary Glycemic Index (GI) formula to develop a range of all-natural muffins.

The mix — comprising extracts of okra (ladies’ fingers), dhal (lentils), barley and fenugreek — registered a GI of 48, the lowest of all muffins tested by Canadian research organisation GI Labs.

GI measures carbohydrate-containing products’ effect on blood glucose and insulin. Holista’s mix reduces the high blood sugar caused by consuming white flour-based products, without compromising taste or texture.

The muffins will be distributed to fast food companies, retailers, schools and hospitals. According to Nielsen research, the U.S. muffin market accounted for over US$1.0 billion in retail sales for 2014, and grows 4% annually.

The Holista-Nadja partnership comes amid concerns that growing consumption of white flour-based products may cause widespread “metabolic syndrome”. Symptoms include obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Founded in 1992, Nadja Foods supplies healthy food to restaurant chains and retail stores. It has been featured in media such as the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Barbara (Brueckner) Shpizner, VP, Innovation Manager at Mattson, said: “Breads, rolls, donuts and bagels account for over US$24 billion in U.S. retail sales. By changing these products’ GI from ‘fast carbs’ to ‘slow carbs’, we are empowering consumers to take control of their own health.”

Nadja Piatka said: “New scientific data shows that fast-digested carbohydrates like wheat are the leading cause of diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Low-GI food is the most practical way to reverse this trend. I am pleased to be part of this revolution.”

Rajen Manicka, Holista’s Chairman and CEO, said: “The U.S. and Canada are the largest, most innovative markets for fast and processed foods, so we took time finding a partner. Nadja has the entrepreneurship and media savvy to facilitate this project, and is the top choice of leading food groups.”
