Abet’s 24/7 view

February 10, 2009

24 x 7 operations has been a trend since the boom of the call center industry. But in the food and beverage industry, Kowloon (siopao and siomai) has been one of the pioneers of operating round the clock.  My friend Abet (and his wife Lei) acquired a franchise about 2 years ago. With the franchise business model and some operational tweaking, the couple was able to cope with the startup challenge.

The location of the store and it’s operation timeframe was one of their challenge, without either of their presence.  Although the usual phone call normally solves any in-store issue, the couple is finding it hard to manage what they can’t see.  Lei is a natural internet surfer, after a short discussion about using the available technologies — it’s quite obvious that the solution was installing an IP web camera.



After more than a month in replacing their PLDT account with Globe’s bundled voice and DSL service,  I helped Abet configured their 24/7 view of their store.  We used the service of that provided the url for the web cam service. Globe’s router (aztech) needs to be configured to forward the http request to the ip based camera, an encore product which can be bought off-the-shelf.

The router comes with a dyndns client that is supposed to register the ip address to whenever it changes. So far the setup is reliable it’s been working for a week now. PLDT has it’s own service that they offer to SME’s. But with a little tech review it is as simple as setting up a printer to your PC.  The free dynamic DNS services offered by the likes of surely makes the internet a useful utility.

GO get your name.

December 4, 2008

No, not that you need to be born-again and register your name. I’m talking about getting your own domain name. Have a business, for personal use or even for your pets, having your own brand  in the internet provides the easiest channel to promote your intent. Imagine how many Jose or Maria, John or Mary names are registered in your community. There are no laws in these duplicates, but of course maintaining a good reputation is another story. But in the world wide web, there can only be a single owner of a unique name similar to owning a business name.

Most if not all large enterprises have registered their company name, tradename or brand name to leverage the internet’s full potential. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are catching up and with the prolifiration of blogging personal domains are also becoming popular. .com, .edu, .net, .org, .country code were the most popular extensions until the database was not enough that new groups were introduced such as .mobi, .tv and .me. The demand has been so huge that you can acquire your own domain for $9.99 for a year. Domain service providers includes the internet bigwigs such as yahoo, google and msn and of course local providers within your community, city, country are also available, you can google domain name and your county.

Owning your brand in the internet and having a web presence may not be your priority but registering your domain name has all the advantages and i recommend you get it as soon as possible. You may park it for the meantime while you are thinkering on what to do about it. Or even profit from it, if you’re not interested and somebody would like to buy it from you. For SMEs, it does not differ from the same intent large corporations on the competetive advantage you may create from this platform. For personal use, the simplest publication of your profession or specialization (online CV) offers a wide range of opportunities.
