best voltage for cbd oil

What is the best voltage for your average THC cartridges (1 gram carts). I usually keep it on 4.0V or red, but want suggestions. I also pull from the pen pretty slow but IDK!!

Any voltage over 3.5 degrades certain terpenes, for live resin cartridges never go over 3.4 and for distillate keep it around 3.6 since it doesn’t have as much terps to begin with.

Depends on the cart. On the super expensive high quality (friendly farmsxalien labs or moxie) i go as low as 2.0

Start at the lowest voltage, in your case 3.4 (blue). If the clouds are incredibly thin or something then you can move up. But in short, lower voltages make your cart last longer and reduce wasting excess vapor

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – The Next Step in Evolution for ERP Solutions

  • Post author

Microsoft announced the rebranding of its Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Thus, spearheading the evolution for ERP landscape and modern business solutions. The rebranding is aimed to build coherent branding and stronger business services.

During the Directions ASIA Conference in Bangkok, Microsoft reintroduced Microsoft Dynamics NAV as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is expected to generate more benefits to users with broader integrations and capabilities. Still the same Dynamics NAV, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (D365BC) is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) that supports business with daily operations. Tasks such as financial management, sales, purchase, inventory management, and more becomes faster and easier.

With Dynamics NAV transformed into Dynamics 365 Business Central, will there be any major changes?

The functions and features of the two are pretty much the same. The difference is not found on the core solution, but on the platform instead. NAV is focused on onsite implementations through local servers, while Dynamics 365 Business Central is hosted on cloud, on-premise or both. The flexibility, accessibility, and cloud advantages may be the major call.

Furthermore, Dynamics 365 Business Central will still support the daily work of 2,700,000 users from 160,000 companies in almost 200 countries. Currently, Dynamics 365 Business Central is available in 21 countries. For the Philippines and rest of Asia, partner localization through Retail Associates can be obtained.

Choosing the right fit for your business.

The evolution of ERP solution is geared towards product depth and benefits for end users. For instance, customers are now empowered with the option to have an ERP system in on-premise, in the cloud or both.

Last Minute Shopping: Make your Grocery Store Successful this Holiday!

  • Post author
Last minute shopping is expected to draw even more customers as the holidays are fast approaching.
Considered as the “busiest time of the year”, grocers and supermarket owners are expected to be fully prepared for the incoming wave of buyers.

Here are some of tips to maximize the rewards this Holiday rush.

    Level Up Your Visual Merchandising
    Secure top staples are located near the entrance. This way, customers won’t have to face trouble roaming and searching each aisle. Put together canned products such as fruit cocktails, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and cream. You may also create a special section for fresh fruits or queso de bola.

2. Ensure Stocks are Sufficient
Suppliers may also be off on the Holiday period. Make sure that orders are placed and received on time because they may be hard to contact during the season. As a retailer, the last thing you want are empty shelves and lost sales.

Protect your supply forecast and inventory. Retail Associates deliver smart solutions so you can beat out the holiday rush for the years ahead.

3. Secure Ample Staff are Available
Days may become very hectic and busy for both the shoppers and the retailers. Hence, match the upsurge of customers with an ample staff to provide service. A well-planned schedule for employees will greatly affect customer satisfaction and shorter lines for checkout.

4. Create Space and Experience
We want to avoid chaotic shopping even if its last minute. Focus on better product placement to allow more space in the store. Train employees to deal with clients that demand faster service or better product options. This season, although a rise in the sales graph is expected, commendable customer experience must come first.

Long lines, slower service, inventory and management can be stressful and challenging this holiday season. However, early preparation and unified data distribution makes a great difference.

5 Ways to Delight Tenants and Owners this Christmas Season

  • Post author
Christmas is just a few days away! Hence, we have listed the top 5 ways to delight your tenants and owners ’tis season.
Hotels and properties are expected to be fully booked with families and friends to celebrate together. Everyone are just as excited in counting down the days for a fruitful 2020.
  • Deck the Halls

As the classic Christmas song goes, “deck the halls with boughs of holly” but no, you don’t need to search for boughs and twigs somewhere. Decorate your entrance, lobby, bar and other spaces for the full Christmas experience. To successfully pull off the holiday vibe, come up with a cohesive design concept. The possibilities are endless – from Candy land, Christmas Village, or Winter wonderland.

Decorate your lobby and entrance with an eye-catching color scheme for an elegant feel. Hit up the internet for some inspiration and pegs that will surely have your tenants and owners go “fa la la la la la”.

  • Run a Christmas Contest

Launch a season contest. Having Christmas activity will boost your tenants and guests’ social skills and promote friendly neighborhood. Unveil a Christmas tree decoration contest, poster making, or even an environment friendly lantern making from recycled materials.

Have all the tenants and owners vote for the winners. This is a good chance to check up on the active and inactive tenants. The effectiveness of this campaign may also be a metric on how extensive your messaging reach is, based on the gathered feedback and participants.

  • Support a Charity Event

After all, Christmas is the season if giving. Engage your unit tenants and owners to participate in a worthwhile and heartwarming event. Assign each tenant/owner to be a secret Santa for a specific child from the charity. Station a big giftbox where they can freely drop gifts for the elderly. Host a dinner party for the less fortunate. There’s no better fulfilling act than sharing the blessings this Christmas.

  • Send Out Christmas Greetings

Make each of your client feel appreciated. Have someone deliver a personalized greeting card or a trinket with the tenant’s name on it. Either big or small, gratitude warms the heart this season.

  • Promote to Potential Clients

Christmas is another great season to gather leads and generate potential clients. Launch an online Christmas challenge wherein outsiders can participate. Create a social media giveaway, or raffle a staycation package. Take advantage of the people taking a break from work for the holidays. They probably spend more time online these days.

That’s it! We highly hope you get some ideas to bring your tenants’ or owners a merrier Christmas! As property owners or managers, delighting clients is a major priority. Before the new year kicks in, let us help you to create maximum tenant experience.

Let’s toast for a cheery holiday!

Four Reasons to Outsource IT Service Desk for your Business

  • Post author

The advancement of IT technology and automation such as IT Service Desk has paved way for bigger opportunities. Hence, enabling maximum productivity for the company and its employees.

Systems and software made it easier to accomplish day to day tasks. Employees get to enjoy full benefits of cloud, internet, automation and all. However, this efficiency might be put to halt when network, maintenance and technical issues arise.

Employing a managed service provider will allow the in-house IT department focus on more lucrative applications for the business rather than tending employee issues that eats up a significant amount time and effort.

Here are some of the benefits when getting outsourced IT services.

1. Reset IT Operations – with managed services in place, computers, hardware or software will be able to keep up with the demand of everyday operations. It provides support from the minor up to severe problems.

2. Low Cost – In contrary to belief, switching to outsourced managed service is relatively saving money and actually cutting more expenses. Having an IT service desk makes resolution for IT issues quicker. This makes room for employees to accomplish more, and the IT resources productive.

3. Quick Response – One of the strongest points of an outsourced managed service is the rapid response to issues. Employees can get support through one dial of the phone or going online. Immediate support will be available at any time of the day.

4. Efficient Handling of Problems – Regardless of the severity, managed services are structured in a way that ample time and action are provided. Through support model leveling, a clear support, priority and resource are provided for each case. Tiered service support allows defined response time and better resolution.
