Alpha Group chooses Qbil Trade

Alpha Group chooses Qbil Trade

Alpha Group is an international supplier of dairy and non-dairy products such as milk powders, cheeses, butter and eggs. After an extensive selection, the choice fell on Qbil Trade. Currently we are working hard implementing the new software.

How to in the Corona era?

Mark Ellis: ‘Everything goes online now. We consult through Zoom meetings and can therefore also share and clarify screens. In fact, it is more flexible and efficient than meeting face-to-face. You can meet more frequently, have a quick consultation in between and it also saves a lot of travel time. Actually, it is not that bad at all, this way.

“With online meetings you can meet more frequently and have a quick consultation in between.”

‘But of course it remains different than meeting each other in person. But it is what it is, right now. Anyway, we do our utmost to ensure a smooth implementation and a nice and long-term cooperation!’

We have moved!

We have moved!

Last Friday, November 1st we have moved to our new office. Just 200 meters from the old office.
The boxes are still packed and everything is still not in order but the desks are in place and the computers are connected so we can go for it! 💪 From now on we work in our new office! 😃

“Room for growth”

In the new building we can grow further and we have more space and facilities for giving training and workshops.

The office floor is 300 square meters in size and has two meeting rooms, an office and a kitchen on the ground floor. The workplaces are on the first floor where we all sit together in a cozy atmosphere. The top floor now serves as a recreation room but is ready to offer room to more colleagues in the future so that we can help even more trading companies with our software!

“Housewarming”

Curious how it turned out? As soon as everything is completely ready and looking tip-top, we organize a housewarming. An afternoon where everyone is welcome to take a look at our building and socialize with a snack and a drink. More information about the housewarming will follow!

Of course we also like it when you come by spontaneously. Coffee or tea is ready!

BREXIT: with good preparation, fewer risks

BREXIT: with good preparation, fewer risks

Newspapers, news apps, TV journals … none where it’s NOT about the Brexit lately: will it be a hard Brexit? Will there be any postponement, adjustment or a transitional period? Nobody knows what will happen after March 29 And not surprisingly: we do not know either.

It is certain that things will change, what the agreements between the EU and the United Kingdom (UK) will be. Our software can support you with the preparation for the different Brexit scenarios and to limit the expected extra handling to a minimum. The better you prepare for the various scenarios, the less risk your business will run.

Customs handling: Export module
If no trade agreements are made between the EU and the UK, the UK will become a so-called ‘third country’, comparable with countries such as Morocco, the USA, China and Australia. Customs declarations thus become part of your import and export to and from the UK. Our export module can be integrated with customs declaration software, but also with the Chamber of Commerce for the certification or legalization of various export documents such as origin documents. A handy checklist ensures that you do not overlook anything and that additional costs are registrated correctly.

Currency risks Currency hedging
With the upcoming Brexit there is the possibility that exchange rates will fluctuate. Naturally, the Brexit has already been taken into account in the current rate but with the surprising moods fluctuations can occur that have not yet been taken into account or go against expectations. If you buy or sell in foreign currency, it is wise to hedge these expenses. Qbil-Trade can support you perfectly with the currency hedging module. This gives you a clear overview of contracts where you still run a risk. And by means of a number of simple clicks you record the agreements you made with the bank.

Warehouse in the UK? | Extra operating company
Would you rather not depend on the handling at the border? And deliver quickly and on time? Perhaps you are considering to build a warehouse or distribution center in the UK? For direct insight and good management of external stock and locations, we have several good solutions. Contact Hikmet Once at +31 318 50 20 26 for more information.

Tip:
Discuss in advance with your customers or suppliers who will be responsible for which part of the import or export later on. See if you need to adjust your delivery terms & conditions accordingly.
