Did you know that installing a mobile phone tower costs more than $100,000? Neither did we, but our consultants relished the chance to learn more about the telecoms industry when Four Business Solutions started working with TIGO.

For retail success, a secure supply chain is everything. In today’s unpredictable climate, life is especially challenging for retailers as they face labour shortages, the compromised availability of equipment, and the global bottlenecks, exacerbated by the conflict in Ukraine. During the pandemic logistics carriers reduced capacity and are now struggling to get back up to full strength as the volume of demand rises.

The challenge is to ensure that we bring healthcare workers on board with the latest technologies in order to stay relevant and work smarter. Artificial Intelligence has had a bad press, centred around the fear of robots taking human jobs. But the truth is that – used properly – it can transform healthcare.

Social housing is unique in that it is the only type of housing where rents are linked to income. So, generally speaking, social homes are the most affordable homes across the country, usually rented at about 50% of the average local market rent. Houses and flats for public or social housing use are built by or for local authorities. Approximately 55% of the country’s social housing stock is owned by local authorities – of which 15% is managed on a day-to-day basis by arms-length management organisations rather than the authority – and 45% by housing associations offering social homes, shared ownership, supported and specialist housing.
