Aeroprobing cooperates with Japanese companies to tap the Southeast Asian market https://howstrategies.com/aeroprobing-cooperates-with-japanese-companies-to-tap-the-southeast-asian-market/ Fri, 05 Aug 2022 01:58:31 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/aeroprobing-cooperates-with-japanese-companies-to-tap-the-southeast-asian-market/ Aeroprobing founder and chairman Lance Kao poses with an in-house drone. 1 credit

In a bid to produce drones in Japan for export to the Southeast Asian market, drone software developer Aeroprobing has entered into cooperations with Japan-based drone application service provider Blue Innovation in 2019 and Japan-based electronics manufacturer Sanwa Denshi in 2020, according to Lance Kao, Founder and Chairman of Aeroprobing.

Under the cooperation, Aeroprobing has developed drone flight control software for Blue Innovation, while Sanwa produces the drones for Aeroprobing, Kao said.

According to Kao, there are several reasons why Aeroprobing chose Japan as a forward base in the Southeast Asian market. First, “made in Japan” has long been a good quality indicator, and helps Aeroprobing to strengthen its bargaining power. Second, Japan and Southeast Asia belong to the CPTPP (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership), which exempts exports from customs duties.

With this in mind, Aeroprobing set up a joint venture in Tokyo with a Japanese investment advisory firm in June 2022, Kao noted, adding that Aeroprobing also hopes to gradually improve marketing in Taiwan.

As Japan has invested far more R&D resources in robotics than in drones, Aeroprobing’s technological capability has become attractive to potential customers in Japan. In addition, Japan is increasingly concerned about Chinese drones, which gives Taiwanese companies a competitive edge, Kao said.

Aeroprobing focuses on developing cloud-based drone flight control software and drone flight management software, Kao said, adding that Aeroprobing used AWS (Amazon Web Services) to establish its private cloud. . For drone hardware, such as motors, mechanical parts and battery cells, Aeroprobing purchases them from different sources, before integrating them with in-house software tailored to the customer’s flight missions, Kao noted.

Aeroprobing adopts a strategy of developing customized and application-specific drones that are produced in small volumes, Kao said. The positioning helps Aeroprobing avoid competition with large drone vendors, such as China’s Da-Jiang Innovations Science & Technology, due to market segmentation, Kao noted.

It is not difficult to put drones in flight, but it is relatively difficult to achieve a level of system integration to ensure stable flight and achieve other functions, Kao said. For example, drones designed for warehouse inspection cannot be guided by GPS and must be equipped with other guidance systems. Aeroprobing’s own indoor inspection solution has been adopted by Blue Innovation for retailer logistics, Kao noted.

Drones developed by Aeroprobing have also been used to spray pesticides in Indonesia through cooperation with local partners, Kao said, adding that the drones can precisely control water and pesticide volumes as well as avoid the chronic human poisoning associated with manual pesticide spraying. Because individual farmers cannot afford such drones, the target customers are outsourced farming teams, Kao said, adding that Aeroprobing has developed software to manage multiple watering drones simultaneously. Considering that many Southeast Asian countries might not survey land effectively in the past, Aeroprobing is also considering opportunities to develop drones for land surveying, Kao noted.

In addition, Aeroprobing has developed a river inspection solution based on an internal model of edge computing, the solution allowing drones to recognize rivers and navigate them, Kao said. The advanced computer model can also be used to recognize special land features, monitor hydrological conditions and search for disaster targets, Kao said. For hydrological monitoring in particular, drone images need to be specially processed to achieve a resolution level of 1 to 3 meters, Kao noted. Compared to remote sensing satellites, drones have much smaller spatial coverage but incur much lower costs, Kao said.

Health Life Optics Tech, in late 2021, announced an alliance with Aeroprobing specifically to combine its AI-based image processing technology with Aeroprobing’s drone solutions for application to precise inspection such as operating conditions PV modules.

Except for pesticide spraying in Indonesia, most drone solutions are still at the PoC (proof of concept) stage and many cooperation projects are currently under discussion, Kao noted.

With a paid-up capital of 31.4 million Taiwan dollars (1.06 million U.S. dollars), Aeroprobing’s operations have reached a break-even point and hopes to seek more cooperation partners to expand its business activities, Kao said. .

Arizona Global Campus buys assets from online management entrepreneur https://howstrategies.com/arizona-global-campus-buys-assets-from-online-management-entrepreneur/ Mon, 01 Aug 2022 13:52:30 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/arizona-global-campus-buys-assets-from-online-management-entrepreneur/

The University of Arizona’s 2020 purchase of the former for-profit Ashford University has fueled controversy for many reasons, including faculty fears that buying a former for-profit college checkered past would damage the reputation of the university.

Perhaps no reason was greater than the fact that the arrangement would continue to deeply involve Ashford’s former parent company, Zovio, in running the University of Arizona’s new global campus. As part of the deal, Zovio, who had come under scrutiny from accreditors, federal officials and the California attorney general for an allegedly checkered history of registration and financial practices, continued to provide enrollment, marketing, and student services to Arizona Global in exchange for a 19.5% discount. tuition income for the first 15 years of the agreement.

The model, similar to the arrangement Purdue University made with Kaplan when it transformed Kaplan University into Purdue University Global in 2017, has raised hedgehogs from consumer advocates who have claimed UAGC is compromising itself. itself and its students by outsourcing much of the operations of the online program to the publicly traded Zovio.

Today, the University of Arizona Global Campus took what it hopes will be a major step towards restoring control of its new online branch and resolving a major objection to its partnership by announcing that it was buying Zovio’s online program management assets and incorporating its operations and employees into the university. (Editor’s note: This paragraph has been updated from an earlier version to clarify the nature of the agreement.)

“By terminating the OPM agreement, while integrating key personnel and systems into UAGC, we are ensuring that all UAGC personnel are aligned with one goal – the success of our students – and our mission. to serve working adults and advance their social and economic mobility by providing a high-quality college degree at a fair price,” said Paul Pastorek, President of the University of Arizona Global Campus, in the press release.

“It really separates our present from the past,” Pastorek added in an interview. “The [U.S.] The Ministry of Education considers it unseemly to have so much of the business for profit. This change removes the anxiety of the ministry.

In making the decision, Pastorek said university leaders recognized the “inherent conflict” that arises when colleges and universities contract with outside companies to launch and operate their university programs online.

“Our deal with Zovio was built on a model that valued new signups,” Pastorek said, adding that revenue-sharing deals tend to cause online program management companies to focus “almost solely on new enrollments,” with little incentive to focus on whether students persist in the programs.

Defective from the start?

The University of Arizona’s purchase of Ashford and its relationship with Zovio was, for many critics of higher education’s entanglements with for-profit entities, the starkest example of what is wrong with such alliances. That’s mainly because Ashford and Zovio have at various times over the past 17 years been seen as the poster children for for-profit online education gone bad.

Ashford emerged in 2005 when the company that would become Zovio bought Franciscan University on the Prairies, a religious college in Iowa that was on the verge of closing. The sale was one of the first in which a nonprofit college’s regional accreditation was transferred as part of the purchase.

Over the next 10 years, Bridgepoint Education, the company that would become Zovio, launched a takeover of Ashford that became Exhibit A of one of for-profit higher education’s perceived dubious tactics: the “purchase” of accreditation, annexing an existing institution and turning it into something very different (almost always online, and usually on a large scale – Ashford peaked at 90,000 students). The tiny Iowa campus became a springboard for a publicly traded university corporation with (at one point) skyrocketing online enrollment and big profits, drawing the enmity of U.S. senators and provoking scrutiny of the accrediting agency that approved the initial transaction.

In 2018, Ashford once again became an example of a trend: for-profit colleges seeking to convert to nonprofit status. Companies have described these measures as allowing them to better serve students and be more sustainable, but critics like the Century Foundation have criticized some of these measures as attempts by for-profit owners to evade federal regulations, which tend to be stricter for for-profit businesses. , especially when the Democrats are at the head of the governments.

In most of these arrangements, the colleges themselves were transformed into not-for-profit institutions from holding companies that remained for-profit, and the companies continued to provide a range of services to the institutions, whether they remained autonomous or purchased by public universities, as in the case of Purdue and Kaplan.

Arizona has characterized its 2020 purchase of Ashford for $1 as an attempt to catapult it into the realm of a major online adult student educator, as the university has grown from a few thousand students studying virtually absorbing around 35,000 Ashford students overnight. A key part of the deal was that Zovio would remain deeply involved in running the new institution’s online programs – marketing management, student recruitment and retention, student success, coaching, financial services, instructional design, and technology. Faculty members were to retain ownership of course programs and direct decisions about the programs and courses offered by the university.

The way the contract between UAGC and Zovio was structured, the nonprofit institution would share 19.5% of its tuition revenue with Zovio, while Zovio would guarantee the university $225 million in revenue on 15 years and reimburse its operating costs.

In many ways, the timing couldn’t have been worse: post-secondary enrollments of all types began to plummet in the fall of 2020, due first to the pandemic and associated recession, then to improving the economy and the labor market. Adult learners like those served by UAGC were particularly likely to choose work over education.

Declining enrollment at Arizona Global contributed to a significant decline in value (and threatened the viability) of Zovio, which remained responsible for the university’s online expenses but left it without significant income from enrollment. The company announced in May that it would consider selling its various parts, including boot-camp provider Fullstack and TutorMe, an online tutoring service.

Additionally, a California judge ruled against Zovio and the Ashford elder in March in a lawsuit brought by the state’s attorney general, demanding that Zovio pay $22 million for encouraging students to enroll giving them misleading information about costs and financial aid, labor market outcomes. , the pace of degree programs and credit transfers.

Arizona Global’s decision

Zovio’s troubles and continued scrutiny from accreditors and federal officials have put UAGC in a bind. Some thought the university might sever its relationship with Zovio, and Pastorek said UAGC explored that option.

“But if I were to fire them, I don’t have the kind of marketing department, enrollment department, student services department that we need,” he said. That left two options, he said, “Go find another [online program management company]or acquire [Zovio’s] assets and the people I want from them, in a way that will be transparent.

Pastorek said that when talking to other OPM companies, it became clear to him that “they will always have a different goal than mine”, due to the “inherent conflict” that they must “generate a profit ” and because they are paid according to the number of students enrolled.

That sounds a lot like what critics have long been saying about these partnerships, including Arizona’s, though university officials have pushed back on those criticisms before.

“The university was aware of the potential conflict, but I think we felt we were going to be able to manage that conflict,” he said. “I think it was a reasonable risk to go ahead.” Pastorek said UAGC worked with Zovio to change its direction and get the company to focus more on student retention, such as guiding students to apply for federal student aid when enrolling, rather than to wait for them to prove themselves (or not) by completing a free three-week program.

But the underlying economics of the arrangement made its pursuit untenable, and faced with entering into another OPM relationship or creating a new arrangement in which UAGC would integrate Zovio’s services and employees internally, the choice was clear, Pastorek said.

Pastorek said he knew some critics might see it as a “terrible idea” to hire Zovio employees, given that the company’s staff members have been caught in the past for misleading students into mistake. He said UAGC had helped oversee Zovio employees working at the university for 18 months and would make wise decisions about who to hire. And under the University of Arizona Global Campus, he said, former Zovio employees will have the “right” incentives.

In the end, Pastorek said, Arizona ended up in a good position despite a bumpy road so far.

“Hopefully we get credit for taking in 28,000 students,” he said, “and getting them to the University of Arizona without Zovio in less than two years.”

This is a developing story.

Long weekends are made for parties – Happy Gourmand https://howstrategies.com/long-weekends-are-made-for-parties-happy-gourmand/ Sat, 30 Jul 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/long-weekends-are-made-for-parties-happy-gourmand/

I think maybe I was destined to be in the service industry.

For as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed throwing a party of one kind or another and I can’t remember the last time I was off work for a long weekend (at unless counting the last two years of no work at all).

When I was a kid, I was always looking for more people to go on a date or a game. My parents were the kind of people who really meant it when they said “come if you’re around”. Sharing quality time with friends and family was always a highlight of every season, and it always involved looking after people with food and activities.

I have written in past columns about my mother’s ingenuity in throwing childhood birthday parties – cool games and fun cakes were her specialty. But my first experience with how real party planning worked came with my parents’ idea of ​​having people over before the summer season ended.

I think it was my dad who said, “I know, we’re going to have a pool party!” The only thing was that we didn’t have a pool. We lived in a duplex that had a small fenced-in sloping yard. But my father would not be discouraged. He knew it was a good marketing tactic to invite people to a pool party. Who doesn’t want to have fun by the pool?

So he went and got an inflatable kiddie pool (so we could make it official) and my mom started making food for the masses.

There were cabbage rolls galore and a cream cheese dip with pineapple to go with celery and carrot sticks (it was the 1970s, after all). Charcuterie, cheeses, sweet pickles and Ritz crackers were laid out on our breadboard (we didn’t call them charcuterie boards back then). Salads, buns, watermelon, the table was full in the afternoon and decimated in the evening. Everyone went home full and happy. The party became an annual event during my teenage years, amidst other seasonal gatherings.

You can see how easy it is to understand how I grew up and married a chef and now live with a harvest table in my backyard to accommodate many friends. But there is a catch. I almost never manage to get someone to come.

Being in the business of helping people throw parties by providing the food means we work when everyone is partying. When we have the day off after a big weekend of work (like the one coming up), everyone gets back to work. Can you see my dilemma?

There are downsides to every profession, and this is one with service work. But it’s okay, it doesn’t bother me at all. The joy I feel at being part of the making of a celebration is even greater than the joy I feel as a single person at a party.

Our friends and family are sometimes disappointed when we cannot attend events with them. I like to think it’s even more special when we can be there, and I know they love it when we bring food.

Finally, we come to shoulder season, when we have the chance to host people ourselves before Mother Nature closes the window of opportunity on outdoor dining. This is our grand finale to the summer.

Wishing you all a glorious long weekend, whether you enjoy quiet times alone or loud and messy gatherings with your loved ones. May it be full of delicious memories and laughter.

If I could ask one favor it’s a smile or maybe a thank you note if you’re spending time with hard working service folks.

It’s the food that fuels us as we flit around the party outside of the fun. You will also make our weekend special if you remember to share your joy.

Well known for manufacturing custom and retail coloring books since 1988, the company offers in-house perfect finishing options for hardcover and hardcover books.

It is a pleasure and a pleasure to provide new and current customers with perfect and rigid book options for their needs. And that creates jobs in our industry.

—Editor N. Wayne Bell

ST. LOUIS, MO, USA, July 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — US-based Really Big Coloring Books® | ColoringBook.com, a recognized leader in custom and retail coloring book production, adds services to include traditional perfect-bound softcovers and hardcover book finishing. “Purchasing manufacturing equipment and expanding with in-house production of perfect, rigid book finishes was a natural progression for our business,” said Founder and CEO, N. Wayne Bell. “Over the years our company has employed artists, publishers, writers, designers and sales personnel to produce coloring books for businesses and consumers. During this time, we have outsourced perfectly bound and hardback book projects. Historically, we produced coloring books and some color products while our binding area specialized in spiral binding, saddle stitching and block/glued books. Now we are adding to these new services and bringing additional binding options in-house. The expansion includes new equipment, an additional production department, an extensive training program and more jobs.” Bell commented on the new service options.

“Perfect binding is a widely accepted method of softcover binding in which the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong, flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are trimmed to give them clean, perfect edges .Perfect Binding books can feature a clear coat or laminated cover to enhance the quality and appearance of the book.” The company says it makes perfectly bound books in just about any size, from 5.5 x 8.5 inches to larger 13 x 19 inch formats, starting with a cover and two sheets of paper up at about 2.5 inches thick representing about five hundred leaves. Customers with catalogs, brochures and marketing pieces often prefer glued perfect binding to improve the look, feel and professionalism over traditional saddle-stitched or stapled pieces, he said.

“Case binding, commonly known as hardcover binding, involves the construction of an outer case made of varying strengths of cardboard wrapped with the cover paper. Case binding is a more complicated process than other types of binding and is a preferred binding method of educators, libraries, bookstores, retailers and consumers Considered the best binding technique in the publishing industry Inside pages can be sewn together and then glued to flyleaves and then glued to the back cover.”Offering this traditional book in a binding style for our new and existing customers has been a service win for our sales staff,” Bell said.

He continued, “Square binding is a cutting-edge technology in the high-end digital printing industry and resembles perfect binding in form, appearance and professionalism. This technology often replaces traditional saddle-stitched booklets. The pages are then sewn to the binding/cover with thread. The look of the binding of the book is a square edge and when the book opens it feels like a perfect binding.”

“Spiral binding never goes out of style,” Bell said. “The company has been manufacturing spiral wound products for over 35 years, durability is a major factor offered by the various spiral options. The education system, schools, libraries, artists and anyone who loves a flat book when ‘they use it prefer spiral binding products.Another major difference is that spiral binding is durable because it has no moving parts, where the binding opens there is less wear on the edge of the book.Spiral books can be notebooks, coloring books or any type of book.These books can have a spiral binding on the top or on the side of the book,like our coloring books for tablets ever popular and trademark travel® that are sold in stores nationwide through retailers like Walmart.com, Amazon, and the grocery industry.”

The company also manufactures various paper products, menus, notepads, maps, anything that a business or consumer requires printed on paper. Bell says she will try to provide them or refer them to someone who can. “It’s about working together in the publishing industry to keep it relevant, up-to-date and competitive with overseas operations while preserving jobs in the United States,” Bell said with a smile.
