Compare Scheduling Software

An effective scheduling software solution can help make any business function more smoothly.

However, it is important to understand the types of features and how they can help you achieve your specific goals. Functionality such as ‘Client Website Integration’ can be an incredibly powerful tool in a business that relies on appointment creation. Conversely, it may not be as important to a firm trying to organize employees working on a design project.

Commission launches new platform for alternative dispute resolution between consumers and online traders

On 9 January, the European Commission opens its new online dispute resolution (ODR) platform to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) bodies. The platformwill allow consumers and traders to settle their online disputes at the click of a mouse, both for domestic and cross-border purchases, without the need to go through lengthy and costly court proceedings. One month after the Commission proposed modern digital contract rules to simplify and promote access to digital content and online sales across the EU (press release ), this online platform will also strengthen trust in online purchases and thereby make an important contribution to the EU’s Digital Single Market strategy. When consumers and traders lodge a complaint, the dispute resolution bodies will act as a referee between the two parties to resolve the issue. From tomorrow, the platform will be open toalternative dispute resolution bodies to sign up and familiarise themselves with the platform before it is opened for use by consumers and traders on 15 February 2016. Member States had to notify these bodies by 9 January. Online traders will be obliged to provide a link to the ODR Platform on their websites. Věra Jourov . Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality said: One in three consumers expe rienced a problem when buying online in the past year. But a quarter of these consumers did not complain mainly because they thought the proce dure was too long or they were unlikely to get a solution. Thenew online platformwill save time and money for consumers and traders. I am confident the platform will be widely used to solve consumer grievances”.

More information about ADR and ODR is available here. The online platform will be accessible here from 15 February.

Multi-year improvement in
profitability; initiate at
Overweight. MORGAN STANLEY INDIA COMPANY

A balanced distribution mix, rising protection mix, and
improving persistency/costs will lead to multi-year
improvement in profitability, even as higher focus on ULIP
could keep growth volatile. This should drive a strong 40%
VNB CAGR during F16-19, which justifies premium valuations.
Market leader with sharp improvement in key operational metrics: We have a
positive view on Indian life insurers with strong distribution and good operational
metrics. ICICI Prudential Life Insurance (IPru) is one such strong franchise, helped
by its well-balanced distribution mix (including a captive bank tie-up with ICICI
Bank) and a sharp improvement in cost and persistency ratios in recent years.
We estimate a strong 17% premium CAGR in F16-19. IPru has a high focus on
selling unit-link insurance products (ULIP, 80% of its premiums, 35% industry
share) in relatively high income segments. This would drive growth amid
improving equity and debt market conditions. ULIPs, over the medium term,
compete well with mutual funds because of expense loadings declining to levels
even below what regulations allow.
. and a strong 6ppt improvement in margins to 14% by F19. Despite industryleading
persistency and cost ratios, IPru”s margins have been lower than peers”.
We expect the gap to narrow in F17-19 because of a rising share of protection mix,
improving persistency ratios, and higher economies of scale.
. justifying premium valuations: Our price target of Rs365 implies 2.9x December
2018 EV and 18% upside potential, driving our Overweight rating. While
valuations are significantly higher than regional peers”, we believe this is justified
by IPru”s superior operational metrics and distribution tie-ups (allowing it to gain
market share and improve profitability in still nascent Indian insurance market),
fast growing protection premiums, low balance sheet risk and high capital. Key
catalysts include strong growth in protection premiums and continued strong
equity market performance.
Key downside risks include: 1) weak equity markets; 2) more competition in the
protection business; 3) weaker persistency ratios; 4) a potential tie-up by ICICI
Bank with other insurers; and 5) an increase in corporate income tax rates.

MS On ICICI Pru:

Initiate Coverage With Overweight; Target At Rs365/Sh; Stock Will See A Multi-year Improvement In Profit
