Grow your business by helping customers buy more of what they can afford. Payl8r is a revolutionary plugin for your website which enables customers to spread payment of basket totals over a time period to suite. Using credit future technology, we are able to offer a line of credit based on a person’s affordability not their credit history, meaning we can lend to the largest audience, something that has never been done in the UK before. Payl8r has been designed so that all stores no matter what size can now offer their customers an instalment plan on products and services at no risk or cost. Payl8r is completely free for merchants to use. Again a UK first.

In this seminar one of the UK’s leading business and property experts Kam Dovedi will be sharing with you why property is an asset class you must be investing in to create a safe, secure and sustainable income. Kam Dovedi will share with you tried and tested systems he has used to build up his own multimillion pound property business, and how you can do exactly the same to create profits and income that will allow you to lead the life of your choice. This seminar will also answer one of the most important questions being asked right now by many new investors, which is: “How do I start correctly in business and succeed?” Kam Dovedi will be showing you real life case studies of different strategies he has implemented within his property business, with their disadvantages and advantages, so you can decide which strategy is best for you, according to how much time (or no time), money (or no money) and experience (or no experience) you have. This content filled seminar will leave you feeling more confident, clear, and relaxed about starting your property business.

Today, too much time is taken up in businesses of all shapes and sizes managing a bewildering array of IT hardware, software and trying to get them to work together.

This in itself leads to a challenge of not only technology management but also the pain of managing numerous vendors – all in all a big drain on resources within the business.
