AIMGs Buyer Persona Focus for Website Redesign


Lake Success, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2015

AIMG (http://www.aimg.com) recently launched the new mobile-friendly, fully responsive website it designed for Donnelly Mechanical, a leading New York City HVAC contractor. Focusing the project on Donnellys buyer personas, AIMG developed content and design elements to align with the current needs and interests of Donnellys varied target audience groups. The goal was to set the stage for conversion and achieving trackable, quantifiable business goals.

Donnelly is a well-established company that serves a distinguished list of clientele representing some of the citys most prestigious buildings, said Joe DeMicco, Founder and CEO of AIMG. Before any content was developed, it was critical for us to understand the various buyer persona types that represent Donnellys ideal clients. We met individually with each of Donnellys department heads to develop profiles not only for the various buyer personas but also for each faction of the Donnelly team, from executive right through to the service guys in the field. This type of in-depth profiling allows us to develop content and communication initiatives that resonate and align with the intended audience, whether it is a loyal client, new prospect, or a member of the Donnelly team. Additionally, Persona Development empowers Donnelly to develop the right offers, programs, and communications for the right audience at the right time, such as aligning with seasonal needs or buying cycles, in order to achieve the desired business results. The process is a type of due diligence that gives you the insight you need to make an intelligent, informed plan designed to get you to your goal. Once everything is developed and in place, we continue to track and analyze behavior and the effectiveness of the content to make sure it is achieving what it needs to. Making timely adjustments is also part of the process.

The new website is a fully responsive design that can be accessed from virtually any device, including Smartphones, tablets, phablets, laptops, and desktops. Working closely with Donnellys executive and marketing teams, AIMG developed messaging and images that allow Donnelly to be understood in ways that are important to them and meaningful to their targeted buyer personas.

A website is a business tool, explained Joe DeMicco. More than a calling card, it is a communication platform where you have the opportunity to attract and persuade visitors to establish a business relationship with your company. The success of your website depends on how well it aligns with what your audience is interested in and trying to achieve at that moment. Bottom line: you have to know your various audience groups, or as we say, your targeted buyer personas; otherwise, youre just guessing and you may as well be tossing coins in a fountain. Our experience proves you get better results with intelligent planning based on verifiable information. It is the way we approach everything we do, whether it is website design, content development, or management of a marketing campaign. Our business is to bring business to our clients. We have found that the best way to do that is to know as much as we can about our clients and those they serve. Our strategic Buyer Persona Development facilitates that understanding on a profound level.

Management Accounting for Agriculture: Is It Time?


Red Wing, Minnesota (PRWEB) May 13, 2015

Management Accounting is a popular buzzword in todays world of agriculture. When used properly, management accounting enables owners and managers to match costs to revenue for a more accurate picture of profitability. Cost center reports allow users to measure the impact of strategic decisions when managing costs for a particular responsibility center, and profit center reports match those costs against revenue generated.

Management accounting helps owners and managers efficiently manage and improve their profitability, said Ken Hilton, Red Wing Software President. Understanding and properly allocating all costs is the key to better decision making and will give managers the analysis needed to make strategic decisions that impact their financial performance.

While the benefits are clear, not all agricultural operations are ready to begin using management accounting. Here are some tips to help with the decision.

Staff

Implementing management accounting without understanding or paying consistent attention to it will not provide optimal results. Current staff should be considered: who would manage the setup and processes associated with management accounting? Having a designated business manager or a trusted consultant to help with the process is crucial to success.

Accounting Practices

Good accounting practices are always important, and even more so when management accounting is being used. Consider whether the operation is currently collecting, recording and reporting financial information from several divisions or departments. If so, this could be a sign that they are ready to take the next step to management accounting.

Education

If an agricultural operation wants to reap the benefits of management accounting but does not know where to begin, they can start by educating themselves and taking it one step at a time. The Farm Financial Standards Council offers excellent and up-to-date information for farmers interested in learning more. Visit their web site to learn more or to purchase and download their publication: Management Accounting Guidelines for Agricultural Producers.

Red Wing Software, Inc., along with its nationwide network of business partners, offers industry-leading service, as well as training, on-site installation and implementation of the software. Their vision is Creating the best management software experience.

Red Wing Software, Inc. develops, integrates and supports the accounting and financial management needs of small- to mid-sized businesses, agribusinesses, Non profits, and municipals across North America.

Cubic Completes Major Expansion of NextBus System in Queensland


SAN DIEGO, Calif. (PRWEB) May 12, 2015

Cubic Transportation Systems, a business of Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB), says its new NextBus real-time passenger information system has undergone a major expansion in the south east corner of the Australian state of Queensland.

This follows the official launch of the new system May 7 by the Deputy Premier & Queensland Minister for Transport, Jackie Trad, enabling NextBus to officially go live on thousands of bus and ferry services across the TransLink public transport system in south east Queensland.

Now Queensland commuters can accurately track their bus and ferry services in real time through Passenger Information Displays and on their mobile devices including smartphones, tablets or computers, taking the guesswork out of riding public transport.

The rollout across the TransLink system follows last years trial on the Sunbus bus network on Queenslands Sunshine Coast.

Jim Perry, the chief operating officer of the Transit Australia Group (TAG), which owns Sunbus and is one of Australias largest privately owned transport operators said, Its clear that the rollout has been a success and that drivers and customers alike have embraced the system.

We look forward to working with TransLink and Cubic in the future to maximize the benefits that NextBus can bring to the design and operation of our networks and, ultimately, the customer experience.

Perry said TAG had always been an early adopter of progressive technologies, in particular those that provide significant benefit to the traveling customer.

When we were asked to be the lead operator in the NextBus rollout, I did not hesitate to throw my support behind it, he said. In addition to the obvious benefit to the people utilizing our services, NextBus has provided another level of insight and analysis to our operations. The real-time access to data, and the ability to see each and every vehicle on our networks at any given time, has allowed a closer and more efficient relationship to develop between management, operations control, and drivers, and ultimately, to enhance the customer experience.

Cubic Transportation Systems Australasian managing director Tom Walker said this first deployment of the NextBus system outside of North America is a major landmark for the company, expanding Cubics services and capacities in the region.

We are delighted that Queensland is playing a leading role in delivering on a key component of Cubics NextCity strategy the integration and application of payment, traveler information and operational analytics to regional transport networks around the globe.

Cubic replaced more than 2,500 driver console units with new devices on buses run by 19 transport operators. The new driver console units use GPS combined with mobile communications on each vehicle to track the exact location and movements of services, with arrival times updated every 30 seconds on the TransLink website.

Cubic designed, delivered and has managed TransLinks go card fare collection operations since the systems rollout was completed in 2008.

NextBus, a leader in real-time passenger information systems, is a subsidiary of Cubic Transportation Systems, Inc.

Cubic Corporation is the parent company of two major businesses, Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) and Cubic Global Defense (CGD). CTS is a leading integrator of payment and information technology and services for intelligent travel solutions around the world. CGD is a trusted provider of realistic training systems, C4ISR solutions, and highly specialized support services for the U.S. and allied nations.
