Car Washing: Hand Washing Versus Automatic

The option to use the traditional method of a hand wash service or the latest automatic machine is based on the personal preference of the car owner. While the hand wash has the potential to give the most gleaming look, the alternative method is certain to be a lot quicker. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of the different car washing options:

Hand wash

Giving the car a regular hand wash is the most traditional method. Even though it is slower than the automatic alternative, it does have its many plus points, as well as a few downsides.

Pros

High-quality and customized – a hand wash has the potential to give the best all-round cleaning performance. A regular hand wash can easily be customized to include other cleaning strategies. With actual hands on contact with the car, it is possible to use extra cleaning techniques like waxing and claying.

Easy to get started – the cost of a basic hand wash is very inexpensive with a need to only invest in a few sponges and a bucket. However, this cost will increase if planning to use other cleaning strategies such as waxing.

Better reach – the may be many places on the car that aren’t property cleaned by the automatic machines. A full hand wash service has the potential to clean the dirt and grime from literally any part or hidden corner of the car.

Cons

Time and labor intensive – a hand wash can be very labor intensive and can leave muscles tired and aching. Also, the time involved can vary with the type of cleaning service provided. An in-depth clean with multiple coatings can easily take a few hours to complete.

Poor finish – if the car is left with any unwashed soap in place, this can lead to a dull looking vehicle. Also, there is the risk of tiny bits of dirt building up on the sponges or rags used to clean the car which can result in the unwanted scratch marks.

Automatic car wash

An automatic car wash is a time-saving alternative to a full hand washing service. Many people are starting to favor the automatic services for a variety of reasons, but it does have its negative points as well as plenty of positives.

Pros

Gentle on the paint work – the automated machines are very gentle to the entire car and will complete the job without causing any damage. In the past, these machines did use hard brushes which had the potential to cause scratches, but this is no longer the case with the modern units.

Thorough cleaning service – the automated machines are programmed to carefully clean all areas of a car to ensure a consistent clean is provided every time.

Cost-effective – the latest machines are designed with specific car washing techniques that can help to lower the water use and save time. This has the benefit of cutting costs for both the operator and car owners.

Cons

Limited contact – a standard strategy with the automated machines is to use minimal contact with the car which can mean the most stuck dirt will still be in place after the washing cycle is complete.

Water spotting – there is the risk of water marks being left on the car if the final air dry stage is not entirely effective

How Do You Define Customer Service?

“We provide excellent customer service.”

Have you ever heard that phrase? Perhaps you’ve said it yourself and yet just how often do we really provide great service to our customers?

What is customer service, anyway?

The Encyclopedia Britannica says “Customer service involves an array of activities to keep existing customers satisfied.”

Wow. That’s vague. And who defines what will satisfy a customer?

The Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale offers these alternative words for service: assistance, help, aid, abetment, good turn, favor, a hand, a leg up, benefit, contribution; boost, promotion, advancement, furtherance, advocacy, recommendation, support and backing.

We can sink our teeth into those words, but we are still sitting in a room alone, or with our team members defining what great customer service looks like without the benefit of the customer’s suggestions. How can we provide great customer service or “keep existing customers satisfied” without input from our customers?

So the first step to providing great customer service is to define just what it looks and feels like. A great place to start is by asking your best customers:

What keeps you coming back?

What experiences do we provide that mean the most to you?

What is the most important component of great customer service for you?

The customer may or may not be able to define exactly what your customer service components are but the conversation will have two important results:

1. The customer will feel valued because you asked their opinion, listened to what they had to say and plan to use some, if not all, of their suggestions.

2. By listening between the lines, you can begin to understand just what is truly important to your customer.

When my teenage son was young he and I would spent a week each summer camping. Sometimes we’d tent camp and sometimes we’d visit a campground with cabins. His attention span was short and so I would plan great activities for our week; visiting a local children’s museum, a day at the amusement park, hayrides, hikes in the woods and trips down the river in a canoe. Each day was carefully planned with play time and adventure time. The activities were fun but also costly and a cheap vacation in a tent would often cost as much as if we’d stayed in a hotel.

One summer, as we drove home from our fun-packed week, I asked my then five year old son what his favorite time had been. We’d visited Santa’s Village and I fully expected him to pick the amusement park as his favorite experience.

“Remember that day we sat at the picnic table and colored in the Spiderman book?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said.

“That.”

“What?”

“That was my favorite.”

Who knew? We can guess what our customer thinks is the most important element of service but unless we ask them, we really are only guessing. If we base our customer service measurements against a guess – then how can we be sure we’ve truly satisfied our customers?

So how do we go about defining the customer experience for our business?

A lot depends on the type of business. If you are an online business, your service will be based on how easy it is to navigate your website, walking the fine line between clutter and content and ensuring your words speak the customer’s language.

A service business may be more defined by accessibility. How easy is it to actually get a hold of you? Do you answer your phone or return calls quickly. Do you have email and respond within a few hours? Are you willing to meet the customer in their office? Do you follow through in a timely manner? Do you keep your promises?

A call center will rely heavily on the attitude and tone of voice of the call center employee. Can you hear the smile in their voice? Do they over use the “hold” button? Are they trained to resolve issues or will the customers have to repeat their story many times up the management ladder?

A brick and mortar business has additional opportunities to provide service starting with the parking lot; is it clean and does it offer plenty of parking spaces? Is the customer greeted warmly and promptly? Is your staff knowledgeable, helpful and available without hovering? Is there an adequate selection? Is the store merchandised in a pleasing manner? Have you dusted, vacuumed and emptied the visible trash cans? If cleanliness is important to your customer, seeing an employee’s half eaten lunch at the cash register could be a make or break moment for your customer.

Employees are another great resource for defining customer service.

Who better to help define service than the people that interact with customers everyday? Ask your employees what they hear customers tell them. If customers comment about the great magazine selection in your waiting room then keep them current. If customers comment on the fact that you provide coffee or ice water then perhaps that is something to continue.

By including your employees in the definition process, they are taking ownership of making sure it continues going forward.

A key element to providing and becoming known for providing great customer service is consistency. Ritz Carlton is known worldwide for their customer service. How did they develop such a world class reputation? At Ritz Carlton great customer service happens everyday with every customer and every employee in every location around the world.

What service can you provide to your customers every time? Is it something that matters to the customer? Create your definition of superior customer service by asking employees and customers what matters most. Once you’ve defined what great service looks like, then it is time to make it happen!

Features of a Good Headset

Millions of people all over the world communicate with one another everyday either through phone calls, chats, mails or any other means. Communication or phone calls is best enjoyed when both the sender and the receiver can hear themselves clearly, without missing out on any important information. These days, with the increase in call rates from network providers, there is need to look for a cheaper alternative that will save cost while you have the chance to talk more as well.

The voice over internet protocol also known as VOIP is gaining popularity as a cheaper alternative to communicate through voice calls. Depending on your service provider, you can make calls using your computer and mobile devices, hooked on broadband or 3G services. It is very easy and convenient to explore the VOIP options to make calls, but to make it easier and more interesting and clearer, you would need a headset. You probably would not enjoy repeating yourself when the other person you are talking to does not hear you clearly that is why you need the headset to break those barriers.

It is true that for making use of the VOIP, you can employ other peripheral devices you get from the market. But the good thing about the VOIP headsets is that it makes communication clearer. You can use VoIP codecs to change the analog signals to digital with the VOIP headset and it does not matter the type of device you use, whether a computer or telephone set. It is a wise choice to use the headset on your device when communicating through the VOIP. The digital headset breaks the signal into packets and send them in the same manner across the VOIP just like what your telephone set would do.

Things to consider before buying a headset

Comfort and duration of use

The amount of time you would be using the headset matters a great deal. For people working as customer service agents, of course you know that would be the first thing they would look out for. How comfortable it is in terms of the sound, grip on the ear and how well it fits the ears. You know for sure that you may likely feel some itching and discomfort when you use a headset that is not comfortable or that does not fit well on the ear.

Ear buds or Earpieces

The choice is yours. Everyone knows what works best for them. Some people may be more comfortable in using the ear bud while others the earpieces. It all depends on what you want and what works best for you.

Length and style of the mic

The length of the mic is also a feature that you should take note of. Is it strong enough, do you speak into it easily and is it well positioned? All these features are what you look at for before purchasing your headset.

In all ensure you test the device and make sure it is in good shape. Also watch out for the sound clarity. If it is clear enough for you, those are the things you should consider before getting a headset.

Rubbish Removal Services – The Cheaper Alternative to Skip Hire

Getting rid of a large pile of junk ensures a pleasing environment. Regular rubbish removal keeps your premises attractive and beautiful. Apart from keeping your premises neat and clean, routine rubbish removal ensures some other positive issues related to environment and health. It can make your surroundings aesthetically appealing. You stay far from the attacks of various germs. As junk removal is an important factor of life, we should get it done regularly. Getting a routine junk removal service is always good.

There are some rubbish removal options available in the market. Normal rubbish clearance service and skip hire are the two popular options. But as the statics say, many people like to choose a junk removal company as it is cheaper than a skip hire. Skip hire is costlier than normal junk removal service. The reason may be its huge infrastructure, state of the art equipments and approval by the local council. The companies belong to this category keep a fleet of vehicles and waste containers. This service is ideal for huge industrial and commercial cleaning. Generally, common and household people have nothing to do with skip hire. If you are a normal homeowner, you can choose a scrap removal service to keep your premises clean and hygienic at an affordable rate. Nowadays, rubbish removal service has become a cheaper alternative to skip hire.

Keeping pace with the modern complex demands, junk removal companies are arranging and rearranging their infrastructures with modern equipments and other necessary things. They are gradually increasing their market-share by occupying the share of the skip companies. Most of these companies carry valid licenses as the yardstick of their quality service and complete client satisfaction. They are proficient in dealing with any type of domestic or commercial rubbish. They can easily clean any commercial, industrial and domestic rubbish without complicating them and increasing the cost of it to any degree. Scrap removal companies are emerging as a very good alternative to skip hire.

On the other hand, skip processes charge more for using skip bags and bringing waste containers for the removal of junk. Apart from these two important reasons, skip processes require permits from their local councils. The arrangement of the process is controlled parking rules. Companies are to maintain a decorum and standard. Else, there is a chance of cancellation and suspension of permits. Consequently, skip processes become more expensive. Now rubbish removal services are the cheaper alternative to skip hire.

Benefits of Cremation

When considering the final resting place of a loved one, there are two options: traditional burial and cremation. As the advantages of the latter become more universally known, more people are opting for this process.

Reduced Costs

Cremation enables people to spend less money in funeral expenses because of the elimination of the embalming step, which involves preparing the body for burial. Embalming is an involved process with a high price tag. Reducing the body to ash also eliminates the need for a traditional casket. Instead, people can choose to have the ashes placed in an alternative container that will usually cost much less.

Flexibility

Traditional burial needs to occur within a tight timeframe to ensure the timely handling of the body. Cremation affords the family some flexibility, especially if distant family needs to travel to attend a service. It is possible to proceed with the incineration but put off a service until a later and undetermined date.

Portability

After burying a deceased family member, this gravesite will remain the permanent resting place for the departed. Cremation enables family members to keep the ashes with them if they relocate at a later time.

Avoiding Decomposition

The slow decomposition of a body in a casket can be distasteful and undignified. If the body is cremated, however, it can avoid this slow return to the Earth and receive a fast and clean disposal. Family members may find this a comforting alternative.

Service

Some people assume that the choice to cremate precludes a funeral or memorial service. However, this is incorrect. After preparation of the ashes, the funeral home assists the family with placing the ashes into an urn or container of their choosing. Then, the service can occur in much the same way as a typical funeral with a casket.

Final Resting Place

After the service, the ashes may be buried or entombed. Ashes can also be scattered in a place with special relevance to the deceased, or kept in a loved one’s home, possibly on a shelf or a mantle.

Environmental Advantages

Concerns abound about the burden of cemeteries on the Earth because of the amount of land used to bury the deceased. Even those who choose to bury after cremation will use much less land. Another environmental concern is that chemicals from embalmed bodies enter the soil and water supplies during decomposition. A balanced analysis considers the fact that incineration involves the emission of greenhouse gases into the environment; however, this can be reduced by requesting the removal of silver-mercury fillings from teeth before the process.

As this process is irreversible, all options need to be carefully considered. Anyone who decides that they wish to be cremated should consider how their family will feel about it. When moving forward, place this wish in writing to inform survivors.

The Affordable Alternative to Traditional Individual Health Insurance

As a way to begin let’s define what I mean by traditional health insurance. The traditional health insurance policy is composed of:

The deductible – This is the amount that you have to pay for a medical event before your health insurance will start to pay. In today’s world that deductible is often $3000 or more.

The coinsurance – After the deductible is met most policies require that the insured pay a percentage of all medical costs up to a maximum. Usually the insured pays anywhere from 20% to as much as 50% of every dollar billed.

The copays – In an attempt to make routine health care accessible many policies include a copay for doctor visits and prescriptions in lieu of having to meet a deductible. An example of this is the $10 office visit copay.

Maximum Out-Of-Pocket Costs – This is the most that an insured can expect to pay regardless of how large the medical bills are. As a general rule the maximum out-of-pocket costs for an individual are limited to around $7000. This can be a very misleading number because it assumes that all of your providers are in your network. If they are out of network your costs can be significantly higher.

And finally the “Network” – Virtually every traditional individual health insurance policy is tied to a network of providers. The narrower the healthcare network, the lower the premium. There is too much wrong with “networks” for this article. Suffice it to say that “networks” are the enemy of the healthcare consumer (you).

The Problem Facing Working Americans

The problem is simple: health insurance premiums are too high for most working Americans in the absence of a subsidy and when combined with extremely high deductible and out of pocket costs, healthcare becomes unaffordable. Let’s look at a couple of examples right here in North Carolina.

A non-smoking couple ages 62 and 63 find that their lowest premium option with BCBS of NC is $1999 a month for a $13,300 family deductible with no copays. A plan with a $7000 deductible and $25 office visit copays would cost $2682 per month.

Assuming the least expensive plan the annual cost would be $23,988 annually. And if either person had a medical event such as cancer, the actual cost for healthcare would be $37,288. You have to ask: “Why even have health insurance?”

A non-smoking 30 year old couple found that the least expensive plan would cost $787.84 a month for a $13,300 family deductible with no copays. The least expensive plan that included copays was $1056.88 but had a $7000 deductible and the most restrictive network. Assuming the least expensive plan, should either member of this young couple have a medical event their total annual cost (deductible + premium) would be $16,454.08. That is a devastating amount of money for a young couple.

The simple solution to this problem is a Fixed Benefit Health Insurance. Unlike a major medical policy where the policy pays for all eligible expenses after the deductible and out-of-pocket maximum, a Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy states exactly how much will be paid for each specified service. Examples of specified services might include: daily benefit for in-hospital stay of 24 hours, specific dollar benefits for specified surgeries, a specific benefit for doctor visits and other specified charges. A great Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy will have very robust benefits, a wide range of specified covered charges, a very comprehensive surgical schedule and more. The most important service that Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy can include is medical bill negotiation, a service that can significantly reduce out-of-pocket expenses.

What is really great about this type of policy is that empowers the insured to be a better consumer. Knowing how much your policy will pay you for a specified medical service allows you to better shop and negotiate the price. But the really great thing about this policy is the affordable premium.

The couple ages 62 and 63 are an actual client of mine who had been uninsured for 5 years as a result of the high premiums. I was able to put them into a robust Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy with a $5,000,000 lifetime benefit for $683 a month. That is an annual savings of $15,792. As I explained to my client the Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy will do a great job of covering 70% to 80% of everything that can happen. If they actually saved the $15,792 difference in premium they would have incredible access to healthcare with very little out of their own pocket.

Back in 2014 I was diagnosed with colon cancer and had a partial removal of large intestine (CP44205). Back then I was covered on a traditional major medical policy. My total out-of-pocket costs were more than $7000. Had I had the Fixed Benefit Plan that I sell today not only would my costs have been zero but I would have received a check from the insurance company for $4619. Not every medical event would have resulted in a check and many might have resulted in out-of-pocket costs of several thousand dollars, but in general the savings would have more than offset those costs.

So, before you choose to go without any health insurance I strongly suggest that you take a hard look at a Fixed Benefit Health Insurance Policy.

Medical Billing Services: Top 2 Reasons You’re Not Getting Reimbursed for Code 97810

If you are an acupuncturist, you are already familiar with code 97810. The CPT-4 procedure code 97810 is a general acupuncture treatment code. This includes 15 minutes of verified time with the patient while performing treatment. Verified time means that the time increments are documented in the patient’s chart for the correct date of service. 97811 is used for each additional 15 minutes spent administering treatment. This does not include the time the patient spends laying idle on the table. For instance, if a front treatment is done without any other services, then 97810 should be billed. However, if the patient receives front and back treatment, 97810 and 97811 should be used.

Now, that we explained what procedure codes 97810 and 97811 mean, we can begin to discuss the top 2 reasons why you are not getting reimbursed from Insurance companies.

Claim sent to Medicare or Medicaid

Neither Medicare nor Medicaid will reimburse for acupuncture claims. Medicare and Medicaid are excellent insurance programs for the young, poor, sick and old; however the insurance plans do not cover everything. Medicare determines medical necessity when they receive the claim. However, Medicare does not consider acupuncture, holistic medicine, alternative therapies and homeopathy to ever be medically necessary procedures. Therefore, acupuncture claims will not be paid. If your Medicare or Medicaid insurance plan does not cover acupuncture, you will be responsible for paying the full bill if you receive these services. Many acupuncturists willingly discount their prices for non-insurance patients.

Medicare also offers supplemental plans, which allows someone to gain coverage where there once was none. Medicare advantage plans may offer acupuncture, and alternative therapies. Even though, Medicare advantage plans cover acupuncture, the service will only be payable if it is determined to be medically necessary, and if the services is performed by a licensed healthcare professional who participates in Medicare. To find out if your Medicare patients have acupuncture insurance, perform Benefits Verification. An experienced and competent medical biller should know whether a claim will be paid or not before it’s transmitted to the insurance company. A thorough and documented Benefits Verification will give you the insight you need to make that determination, each and every time.

Wrong Procedure Code

There are four codes that are greatly used by acupuncturist. We have already discussed two of those codes, 97810 and 97811. However, there are two more additional codes, which is 97813 and 97814. 97813 is used when the acupuncturist uses electrical stimulation on one or more needles. Remember, this is only for the initial 15 minutes spent performing the procedure. 97814 is used for each additional 15 minutes spent using electrical stimulation on one or more needles. Oftentimes, licensed acupuncturists simply code the procedures incorrectly. That is why keeping good records is a must for acupuncturist. For instance, if a provider performs general acupuncture, and then performs acupuncture with electrical stimulation, how would you bill that visit? Many providers believe the correct way to code this visit is with 97810 and 97813. However, 97810 and 97813 is used for the initial 15 minutes. Therefore, a determination must be made about what procedure was performed first. Since, general acupuncture was performed first, we will bill 97810 for the first procedure, and 97814 for an additional 15 minutes of acupuncture with electrical stimulation. This is the correct way to bill this scenario.

Acupuncture insurance billing can be tricky for many medical billing services and in-house staff. Physicians can have over 50% of their claims denied, simply because they have not learned how to properly code procedures. However, with thorough research about acupuncture coding and how to properly use them, experienced medical billing services can help you to expect consistent reimbursement from insurance companies.

Don’t Pay Six Percent Commission

Recently the State of Colorado made some rulings that will most likely do away with the FSBO Flat Fee entry only MLS listing services. Other states may follow suit. This appears to be an attempt to return to the old rigid six percent MLS listing model, a more traditional approach, where the six percent is usually divided with three percent going to the Listing Broker and three percent to the Buyer Broker.

Flat Fee Services offers the seller tremendous savings and come in a variety of packages. A Flat Fee 4 phase Essential Only listing could really save you some money. You pay as you need the service and only for the basics, no frills.

There has always been a segment of Realtors who clung to charging six percent and another segment of Brokers who tried to give the consumer a fair service for a fair price.

So What will the Ruling mean to you? Could be you’ll pay exorbitant commissions to get your property in MLS.

The alternative is to find Brokers in your area who are doing something like what we’re doing with 4 phase Essential Flat Fee listings. See if you can negotiate a 4 phase Essential Only listing. What’s that?

There really are only four Essential phases of a real estate transaction:

1. List with Multiple listing service

2. Have a Broker write and/or review your contract and counter offers

3. Have a Broker act as a transaction coordinator and follow all the myriad details, dates and deadlines of closing to ensure contract obligations are met.

The Broker will keep you informed on contractual obligations and write amendments to the contract as needed.

4. Have the Broker oversee the details of closing.

The Broker is usually paid a success fee at closing. That’s it. In a nut shell, that’s what’s involved in selling Real Estate.

These 4 phases are the components of a real estate deal. If you paid for each service separately and paid a Flat Fee rather than a percentage of the sales price you would save a ton of money.

Generally you’ll also get listed on:

• The Broker’s website

• Realtor.com

• Hub sites

• Various publication

There’s a lot of other stuff involved in the sale of a property but it is not part of the Essential 4 phases.

There are additional tasks such as:

• Setting Showings

• Signs

• Lock boxes

• Flyers

• Open houses

The Seller can take on more responsibility and handle some or all of these tasks. None of these tasks require a license. Are these five tasks worth three percent? On a $200,000 dollar sale that’s $6,000 dollars. If you could pay a Flat Fee for each of the 4 essential phases and pay separately as you needed the service, you’d save thousands of dollars.

So I’m suggesting you find a Broker, in your area, who is willing to negotiate and break away from the traditional six percent listing.

Where do you find Brokers who are willing to do some sort an Alternative listing?

Look at advertising online and yellow pages for Flat Fee, discount, FSBO, pay less Brokers in your area. Call the local Multiple Listing Service and ask who provides alternative services. You can find someone who is willing to work with you Essential four phase Flat Fee listing is the approach my company is taking to meet the requirements of a restrictive state law. We will continue to offer considerable savings.

SUMMARY

Let me summarize and reiterate… You do not have to pay six percent to get a home sold through the MLS. So why would you?

If you, as the seller, are willing to take on more responsibility for the marketing of your property then take the 4 Phase Essential listing ideas to some Brokers, in your area, and negotiate a deal that’s a Win-Win for both of you.

I would not be surprised to see some antitrust and restraint of trade lawsuits come from these ruling that attempt to stymie Broker creativity in their offerings.

Reasons Why IPTV Is a Highly Effective Alternative to Normal TV

About IPTV

IPTV is an alternative to a conventional television and other multimedia services. It is called an internet protocol TV as it works by using the internet networks of a place and the multimedia data is delivered to the device through internet protocol address.

It is slowly replacing television services which use satellite signals and cable formats to deliver channels, as it can simply use local network for delivering channels and various programs on any device like TV, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and computers. It is highly popular because it can show live television as well as one can request programs and videos from the list and watch them anytime one wants.

One needs to find a paid IPTV service provider who will then set up a set-top box connected to one’s network, and then one can simply watch their favorite programs or movies uninterruptedly without any hassle.

There are some features that make the IPTV very popular and a very strong competitor against usual cable TVs and they are discussed below.

On-demand content

This is one of the most useful features of getting an IPTV subscription, that is, one can watch whatever one wants without having to wait for the TV schedule and timings. Here, one can watch the programs and movies of their choice by just choosing it from the playlist that is made available by the service providers, which means one will not have to watch the next episode or miss any program because one was busy. This feature makes the entire experience more easy and convenient.

Huge pool of content

When one is subscribed to a conventional television plan through cable connectivity, then one gets only a fixed set of channels and thus keeping the content availability limited. However, IPTV providers make sure that their customers are availed with a wide variety of shows which can be watched both live or later on demand. Also, unlike TV, one is not restricted only to watch programs at a particular time as one can watch them anytime. One can also watch international content from around the world without any extra charges.

Compatibility with devices

IPTV is not bound to television only like a normal TV network. One can use IPTV on any device of choice which means there can be various viewing points too, as one will not have to sit in front of their television to watch any program. One can use any device which can connect to internet network like computers or phones from any location wherever there is the internet.

Easy subscriptions

Like television cable networks who make their subscribers sign long term contracts which are usually expensive, with IPTV, one only pays for what one wants to watch and usually they have easy and flexible subscription plans. One can personalize their plans and also can use it the way one wants by watching on multiple devices without having to pay too high subscription price.
