Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2013

IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of the self-directed solo 401(k) Plans has seen an increase number of small business owners having the opportunity to establish a Solo 401K Plan because of the emerging reliance on independent contractors. Due to the increased reliance on independent contractors to avoid hitting the 50-employee threshold, which would require them to pay for employees health insurance, starting next year, a number of small businesses are now able to adopt a Solo 401K plan because they have eliminated their full-time employees. Not all small business owners have been able to turn all their full-time employees to independent contractors, but a number of businesses have tried in order to not be subject to the ObamaCare costs, stated Maria Ritsi, a paralegal with the IRA Financial Group. The appeal of using outside non-employee workers is growing as many small businesses are trying to stay under the 50-employee threshold that would require them to pay for employees health insurance, beginning under the federal health-care law, or be subject to a penalty, stated Ms. Ritsi.

Not all small business are able to turn to contractors to eliminate the reach of the federal health-care law, but we have seen an increasing number of small business owners try, stated Mr. Bergman.

We have strongly advised clients to be extremely conservative in re-classifying past employees as independent contractors as the Internal Revenue Service have spending significant resources in this area, stated Mr. Bergman. However, as business condition continue to be tough, companies are looking to remain competitive, especially with the increased costs assisted with ObamaCare, stated Ms Ritsi.

Financial Institutions Optimize their Intranets with CardioLog Analytics


Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 09, 2013

Intranet portals have long been a vital enterprise tool for financial organizations. Leveraging their intranet as a place for employees to collaborate and communicate, this tool has always served as a key for employee productivity. In recent years, the intranet has become more complex as demand rises within business units and intranet administrators. Additionally, owners are under constant pressure to ensure the intranet provides the right content and provides employees with the necessary tools.

Many of these financial Institutions have chosen CardioLog Analytics to monitor the way their portal is being used, and how to optimize it based on these metrics. Included among those who have deployed CardioLog Analytics are Fidelity investments, Man Investments, Standard Charter Bank, Falcon Private Bank, and more.

These brands are using CardioLog Analytics to make continuous improvements to their portal based on the user interactions. These organizations are able to surface popular content and remove content which is not used, helping users become more effective and saving storage space. They are also able to identify which users and departments are not leveraging the portal to provide targeted training to these groups.

CardioLog Analytics provides a variety of useful analytical and statistical data, it is very easy to use, and easy to install. The installation wizard has been praised by the representatives of several customers from the financial industry, they say that all their staff can easily use it, and there is no need for an additional IT team.

Based on our experience, we would recommend CardioLog Analytics, it has a complete web analytics solution to easily create and view analytical reports and statistics for SharePoint. We were very satisfied with CardioLog Analytics product and Intlock support. Dimos Mantas, Application Developer at Piraeus Bank. Piraeus Bank Group located in Europe, has a network of companies that stretch across all areas of banking, including retail banking, investment banking and SME capital banking. Since deploying CardioLog Analytics, they have been able to make real changes in their portal and make sure it provides users with the tools they need making employees more productive. They are able to view insights for their entire portal and also create dashboards for individual sites enabling each branch manager to view information relevant for his/her team. These features, and many more advantages, ensure the Piraeus portals success.

Financial organizations are increasingly reliant on their intranet which has become one of the main enterprise solutions within these organizations. From a document repository 10 years ago, intranets today provide most of the tools employees use and can either make them much more efficient or cause them to struggle. These financial institutions are treating their intranets like internet sites and accurately measure how they are being used in order to take actions to modify, optimize, and improve the portal for their employees. As opposed to organizations who do this once every few years when migrating to a new platform, these finance organizations are optimizing constantly to ensure they are getting the most out of their intranet and that employees are benefiting from this platform. James Wright, Marketing Manager at Intlock.

Today Small Businesses Still Hurt for Capital: Sunovis Financial Micro Loans Can Address the Problem Now


San Francisco, California (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

What can a small business owner do when he or she needs capital but cannot access it? This could be for a small expansion, hiring, purchasing inventory or equipment.

Businesses need capital to grow, to thrive, to hire and to survive. Yet access to capital has been a major problem for many small businesses since 2008. Why? Banks, especially small banks that typically lead in lending to local small businesses, are still experiencing problems. Between bad debt on the books, new regulations aimed at larger banks, and other issues, it is difficult for many to lend even today. And lending requirements have become very tough.

Sunovis Financial provides a solution for small business owners. “We can make an impact on this difficult situation, and that is why we are focusing on small business Micro Loans,” says Terry Robinson, President of Sunovis Financial. “We can get capital into the hands of qualifying small businesses very quickly. Approvals can be made in as little as two to four days.”

The economy will not recover until small businesses can recover. There are more than 23 million small businesses in the U.S. which account for 54 percent of US sales, says the SBA, with 66 percent of new net jobs coming from small businesses.

“No doubt, innovation and job growth comes from small business. Our mission at Sunovis is to help rebuild the economy, one business and one loan at a time, and Micro Loans are a big part of that.”

Micro loans are typically up to $ 150,000 but may expand to $ 250,000 for multi-site businesses (such as franchises or restaurants). Terms are short, from 4 months to 18 months, with easy payback methods. The main underwriting focus is on the ability to repay and cash flow of the business, not collateral or credit scores. “Many small businesses today have a cash flow but need capital to expand, yet they are unable to get a bank loan. Micro loans can help.”

According to the recent Pepperdine University study, small business hiring was down in the last quarter of 2012 and into 2013. The report also indicates that alternative financing is growing in popularity. No doubt, micro loans have an important role for small business owners.

About Sunovis Financial

Sunovis Financial focuses on lending to small businesses, through expertise in SBA loans and Micro loans. It also provides capital for commercial real estate financing and refinancing. The mission of the company: “rebuilding the U.S. economy, one business and one loan at a time.”
