Ready for Job Hopping Millennials?

Growing companies should take note: Those employees who are online and socially-connected and quick to capitalize on technology may be tough to keep long term. They are highly motivated to progress in their careers. They will leave after a few years to ensure they are in an environment where they can contribute. Studies even show staying at the same company for over two years on average will result in the employee earning less over their lifetime by 50% or more. Learn more here on how to better understand and manage Millennials.
Having sufficient working capital may also be a concern to some business owners. Please think of me if you learn of a client, prospect or colleague in need of cash. Along with Factoring, we offer a variety of financing services -- from Purchase Order Financing to Asset Based Lending. Chances are we can help.   

Amplify Your Business with Mobile Apps
Important hallmarks of successful entrepreneurs are the ability to maximize personal productivity and to find streamlined ways to manage tasks and/or employees. Technology aptly zeros in on these qualities, offering an ever-changing array of mobile app solutions.
Aaron Strout, president of global integrated marketing and communication agency WCG, blogs monthly for Marketing Land, a daily online publication that covers all aspects of the digital marketing industry. His focus is to highlight the best apps for marketers.
Click on the image for Today_s ChuckleStrout's Top 20 Most Useful Business Apps For 2015 feature both new and tried-and-true recommendations covering everything from self-management to travel, social media, enterprise productivity (collaboration apps) and more. Three examples:
  1. Expensify - scan and categorize receipts to manage expenses on the go
  2. Confluence - create documents, organize plans and collaborate with others digitally
  3. LinkedIn - still a leader in business network apps, recently upgraded to be faster and more useful
The website, featuring startup news, events and mobile resources, shares a heads-up for 2016. Entrepreneurs would be well-served to check out Prepare For These 2016 Mobile App Predictions. The list counsels businesses to use apps to create "more personal engagement with consumers." It also hails enterprise mobility (basically handling business infrastructure and connection to staff, consumers, etc. via apps) as a key trend for this year. As you might guess, app security is also a hot topic.
There are apps for building apps as well. One handy tool is BuildFire, a leading global mobile application development platform choice for businesses, organizations, professionals, and resellers. The intuitive system and US-based customer support helps thousands of users build mobile apps every week. In fact, more than 50,000 businesses have already used the "click and edit" platform to create custom mobile apps for smartphones, tablets and mobile websites - no technical skills are necessary. It's free to build your app, followed by reasonable monthly fees once published.
Getting on board with mobile technology is definitely worthwhile. Recently Gartner Inc., a world leader in IT research and advisory, announced by 2018, 50 percent of consumers in mature markets will use smartphones or wearables for mobile payments. "Innovation in apps, mobile devices and mobile services are impacting traditional business models, particularly in the way people use personal technology for productivity and pleasure," said Amanda Sabia, principal research analyst at Gartner. "Product managers must understand who their customers are for these new devices and services, and how the products are being used. Knowing your customer is imperative in order to capture a fair share of spending opportunities in this dynamic marketplace."
