As a result the staff is always on edge struggling to give the best dining experience to their guests. And the struggle continues for the management who is always on lookout for new marketing avenues.

Restaurants spend a lot of money and time to develop a web presence and then market through websites, social media, SMS or emails to generate more business as well as to create an online identity. The non-availability of technical or sales specialists make it difficult for them to update and share information as and when they need to. We at DineDesk understand this having spent long hours in research and communication. Considering the rich expertise in restaurant sector, we have launched a BEST-IN-CLASS solution that will move restaurants to the next level at an accelerated pace.

If restaurants don't have a website or mobile website. We design it for free and integrate it with DineDesk! We are also closely integrated with social media services like Facebook. If the restaurant is new to social media (Facebook, Twitter or Google+), as a part of restaurant setup, we offer free social media setup and training to capitalize on the wave.

UFLEX Ltd. Q4 FY2012-'13 Consolidated Net Revenue at Rs. 1240 crore and Net Profit at Rs. 41 Crore


New Delhi, Delhi, India, Thursday, May 30, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- Uflex Ltd., the Bombay Stock Exchange (UFLEX: 500148) and NSE listed, India's largest flexible packaging company has registered the Consolidated net revenue for the March quarter of 2013 of Rs. 1240 crore as against Rs. 1175 crore for the same period last year, up 5.5% whereas the sales volume has grown by 13% due to availability of additional capacities at the new manufacturing facilities that commenced operations. However, the consolidated net profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 has been lower at Rs. 41 crore as against Rs. 51 crore for the same period last year due to continued downward pressure on the operating margins.

For the full financial year ended March 31, 2013, Uflex recorded a strong growth of 14% in consolidated net revenues at Rs. 5161 crore as against Rs. 4516 crore for the last year. The net profit for the full financial year (FY 2012-13) has been lower at Rs. 190 crore against Rs. 255 crore in the last year, a decrease of 25%.

The higher revenue growth is attributed to new capacity expansion globally and increased uptake of innovative flexible packaging solutions offered by the company across sectors. Uflex completed the expansion in Poland successfully during July, 2012 and in Kentucky, USA during January 2013. Collectively the two facilities involved investments of about $150 million.

According to Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman and M.D. of UFLEX Ltd., "With growing number of markets in our fold and manufacturing facilities at important commercial centers of the globe gives us the necessary edge to serve our clients with quality products and services. Our direct near-shore presence to clients has enabled us to serve them promptly which is important in the dynamic business environment today. This has ensured long term relationships with customers globally and reflects well in our growth trajectory."

Uflex's strong manufacturing base in India, Mexico, Dubai, Egypt, Poland and USA caters to global markets spanning USA, Canada, South America, UK, Europe, Russia, CIS countries, South Africa and other African countries, the Middle East and the South Asian Countries.

Expansion Plans

UFLEX's agenda of global expansion and consolidation of its position as a truly Indian MNC (Multinational Corporation) is reinforced with its strategy of capacity expansion and adding manufacturing lines for various product categories across existing and newer locations to increase proximity to the markets, but also to bring broad portfolio of value added products to its clients at competitive price points.

BWI: Sandvik Coromant Gives Productivity a Big Push by Launching New Tooling Solutions

Sandvik Coromant Gives Productivity a Big Push by Launching New Tooling Solutions


Pune, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, May 30, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- All new products emanate from market research. This vital work pinpoints the areas of greatest demand - where new innovation will benefit end users the most. Armed with this information, the research and development department can begin creating products designed to fill the identified gaps and best serve customers.

This process applies to tooling as much as any new consumer product or online service, and with CoroPak 13.1 Sandvik Coromant brings to market a range of new tooling products offering genuine competitive advantage to those prepared to invest a little, and gain a lot.

New face mill

A case in point is the new CoroMill® 419 high feed face mill featuring indexable inserts with five cutting edges and through body coolant facility producing high productivity from roughing to semi-finishing operations. In fact, productivity gains of more than 20 per cent are guaranteed against comparable competitor tools.

The secret behind its advantage is a light cutting action facilitated by a 19° lead angle that sends the majority of the forces directly up the spindle. This means CoroMill 419 is ideal for 40 taper machines, or where extended tool machining is required, or perhaps where the workholding is less than perfect. Impressive tool life is achievable on workpiece materials that include high alloy steels, stainless steels, titaniums and even heat resistant super alloys.

Prior to the CoroPak 13.1 release, a limited number of CoroMill 419 cutters were made available to customers for testing. The feedback has met all expectations and the demand for this exciting new product is anticipated to be high. High feed face or profile milling operations in industries such as oil and gas will be among the major beneficiaries.

Internal coolant for CoroMill 316

Among other milling highlights of CoroPak 13.1 is the CoroMill 316 exchangeable-head end mill. Already a huge success with Sandvik Coromant customers across the globe, this groundbreaking milling system now features through-coolant capability to deliver superior chip evacuation and higher metal removal rates.

The machining of materials as heat resistant super alloys, titanium and stainless steels can demand the deployment of coolant for temperature control and chip evacuation during cutting. By offering internal coolant holes to deliver a precise jet of coolant, CoroMill 316 is able to outperform existing solutions with external coolant.

Typical applications for CoroMill 316 include high feed face milling, slot milling, helical interpolation, shoulder milling, profile milling and chamfer milling. Machine shops can make a quick and easy switch between cutter type, radii, tooth frequency, geometry and grade.

Tooling systems

Critical to the success of any cutting tool is its holder. In face milling operations, one age-old problem - pull-out - has finally been tackled head-on using the new CoroChuck® 930. This high precision hydraulic chuck uses fulcrum technology, an optimized thin membrane design which allows for secure clamping with two supports on each side (fulcrums).

The result is the best pull-out security available on the market, superior to existing alternatives such as shrink-fit chucks, ER collet chucks and weldon adaptors. Three different CoroChuck 930 designs are available - heavy duty, slender and pencil - offering precision run-out better than 4 ┬Ám.

Additional tooling systems new in CoroPak 13.1 include the introduction of Coromant Capto® clamping units for high-pressure coolant (HPC) applications up to 200 bar. These are particularly suited to long-chipping materials where swarf break-up is essential. Also new is the CoroBore® 825 SL face grooving system. Designed for applications from 47 to 1,275 mm diameter, the system features CoroCut inserts and internal through-coolant, and provides a productive alternative to milling grooves.

Turning products

New additions to the turning portfolio include CoroTurn® HP boring bars for internal wet turning operations with HPC capability up to 275 bar. The increased tool life and chip control offered by HPC can be maximized in combination with insert geometries -PMC, -MMC and -SMC.

In addition, the CoroTurn XS family of precision tools for face grooving on small parts is now expanded with holders for size 8 and 10 mm. Face grooving inserts in the same sizes are also available offering groove depths up to 30 mm - a significant increase over the previous 6 mm maximum.

New, angled (hockey stick) turning inserts are another highlight of CoroPak 13.1. In addition to the existing -RS geometry, -RO with built in chip former is now available for roughing and finishing of difficult-to-access T- and L-grooves with improved chip control in stainless steels and HRSA materials.

Drilling

Among the latest drilling innovations sees the CoroDrill® 870 diameter range extended and the introduction of a Tailor Made offer for producing chamfered holes in one operation. With the new pilot geometry -GP, Sandvik Coromant also offers an even more secure drilling process for deeper holes up to 8xD with no bell-mouthing.

For deep hole drilling applications, CoroDrill 800 is now stocked as standard in diameters 25-65 mm for both STS and ejector type systems, while CoroDrill 801 is now available from stock in diameters 65-165 mm. For deep hole counterboring operations, TXN inserts feature new 'A' geometry with dedicated chipbreakers for use on extra long chipping materials such as Inconel and Super Duplex stainless steel.

Frost & Sullivan Brings its Largest On-Site Assessment Process to the Gulf
Launches Value Chain Leadership Awards (VCLA) 2013, a Global Programme to Transform Supply Chain and Manufacturing Capability; Last Date to Submit Nominations: July 31, 2013

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Thursday, May 30, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- Frost & Sullivan, the Global Growth Partnership Company, with a reputation of identifying leaders through a structured and systematic process (endorsed by the Industry across the Globe), is proud to bring its largest on-site assessment process to the Gulf - "Value Chain Leadership Awards 2013" (VCLA). A global programme to transform supply chain and manufacturing capability, Frost & Sullivan's VCLA aims to identify and applaud sustainable organisations with strong business acumen and robust operational performance aligned to customer satisfaction and delight.

Frost & Sullivan Awards recognises outstanding industry achievements across a multitude of industries and functional disciplines by companies worldwide. These Awards have a robust, highly acclaimed, and constantly updated assessment process, derived from the best global practices. VCLA also endeavours to acknowledge companies who have demonstrated excellence in their growth strategies, exhibit exceptional leadership, successful customer acquisition, and service strategies, and sound execution in business plans, in addition to other critical factors.

Sharing his views on manufacturing, Raghavendra Rao, Vice President, Frost & Sullivan opines, "Historically, manufacturing has been and continues to be the least leveraged sector in the Gulf. However, the growing realisation that non-renewable sources will at some point cease to sustain economies and hence it's significant to invest in diverse bedrocks of economic solidity that include manufacturing as a pivot, is the silver lining. Investment in basic industries is just a beginning and only confirms the massive underlying potential. If the region continues this for future sustainability, it can emerge as an unparalleled global manufacturing powerhouse".

Manufacturing is one link in a series of processes that complete the value chain. Additionally, there are the Customer Focus processes and Logistical processes (both, inbound and outbound). Added to these three, there is the fourth process that considers and addresses all issues of long-term sustainability. These are the critical defining elements of the value chain. Frost & Sullivan believes that a firm that performs well on these four parameters should be a natural Value Chain Leader.

Speaking at the launch of VCLA Gulf Edition 2013, Raghavendra Rao, says, "Adoption of sustainable development initiatives have improved competitive advantage for companies across the globe. Frost & Sullivan holds over a decade of experience in hosting these On-Site Assessments and Awards successfully in India and we are now proud to bring these to the Gulf. Over the years, our Manufacturing & Process Consulting Practice has been working closely with management teams of various companies across Europe, India, and North America and has been involved in critical decision making with respect to supply chain efficiencies, its leanness, and flexibility. The objective of this awards platform is to propagate the concept of sustainable development and assist companies in adopting the same through assessments, feedback, benchmarking, and sharing of best practices."

VCLA evaluation will be primarily based on four critical aspects of manufacturing: Customer Focus, Logistics Excellence, Operational Effectiveness, and Sustainability. The model is built on a total of 1,000 points and each parameter has different weightage based on its importance. A scorecard will be given at the end of the assessment process to all participating/short-listed companies that will provide them a quantitative assessment of their strengths and weaknesses that need to be taken up internally for carrying out improvements.

Based on excellence exhibited on various business metrics and evaluation parameters, facilities will be graded and subsequently awarded on four sub-parameters besides the overall "Partner of Choice" Award. Each Sub-Parameter will be an Award Title in itself. Best Practices in various specific micro-parameters will be recognised by a "Certificate of Merit" in the respective practice. The assessment process is designed to evaluate the progress made by an organisation toward identifying and implementing sustainable manufacturing practices in its operations and supply chain.

VCLA will cover a diverse and extensive range of industries such as Chemicals, Food and Beverage, Consumer Products, Paper, Metals, Fertiliser, Petrochemicals, Light and Heavy Engineering, Paints, Pharmaceuticals, Electricals and Electronics and Cements.

The last date for nominations to participate in the award programme is July 31, 2013. If you wish to know more about the Awards, contact Tanu Chopra, Corporate Communications, at tanu.chopra@frost.com. To send in your nominations, email vcla@frost.com, with your full name, company name, title, telephone number, company e-mail address, company website, city, state, and country.

BWI: Organized Sector in Water and Wastewater Treatment Services Market in Indian Pharmaceutical Industry to Become Stronger, Finds Frost & Sullivan

Organized Sector in Water and Wastewater Treatment Services Market in Indian Pharmaceutical Industry to Become Stronger, Finds Frost & Sullivan
Market participants embrace M&A's due to the rapid growth of the Indian Pharmaceutical Industry

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, May 30, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- India is emerging as a key hub for pharmaceutical manufacturing. Backed by government policies, the country's pharmaceutical market has registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12 percent between 2007 and 2011. Such positive trends are set to continue, unleashing a flood of opportunities for the Indian water and wastewater treatment market for pharmaceutical industries.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.environmental.frost.com), Water and Wastewater Treatment Market for the Pharmaceutical Industry in India, finds that the market earned revenues of INR 5.08 billion in 2011 and estimates this to reach INR 9.47 billion in 2016, growing at a higher CAGR of 13.3 percent.

"Currently, India's pharmaceutical industry is the third largest in the world in terms of volume and the fourteenth largest in terms of value," noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst. "As both international and domestic demand for pharmaceuticals soars, India's pharmaceutical industry is poised to expand rapidly, fuelling the need for additional water and wastewater treatment equipment." Manufacturing of medicines require high-purity water in the production process and the wastewater stream can be heavily laden with toxins, contaminants and organic nutrients which needs to be treated before disposal, requiring water and wastewater treatment equipment.

Government support for India's pharmaceutical sector will be accompanied by stricter governance on water and wastewater usage. For the past ten years, the Government of India (GoI) has adopted various means to strengthen the pharmaceutical market. The GoI has allowed 100 percent FDI (foreign direct investment) in the drugs and pharmaceuticals sector. Various SEZs (special economic zones) have been established all over the country; Gujarat is the forerunner in this regard.

"Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) norms are set to become more stringent, with all new industries, such as power and pharmaceuticals, now required to install water recycle/reuse systems," said the Analyst. "In tune with government efforts to promote environmentally-friendly, good manufacturing practices, pharmaceutical industries have already started implementing zero liquid discharge (ZLD) systems."

On an average Tier I pharma companies in India use around 2 million litres of water daily. Presently very few pharma companies are following globally accepted best practices in India. With large amount of wastewater being generated from pharma companies, government may turn up strict regulations further which will put an additional burden to the pharma companies. Pharma companies should utilize latest water and wastewater treatment technologies to sustain the highly competitive pharma market in the future with global pharma companies showing interest in the business in the Indian region.

The water and wastewater treatment services market is thus moving from solely cost considerations to a broader focus that highlights eco-friendly, energy-efficient, and sustainable practices. On the competitive front, there has been a distinct shift towards the organized sector. As price margins of organized competitors fall due to the lower prices offered by the unorganized sector, companies are favoring mergers and acquisitions or strategic alliances with other companies, including international firms. "This will eventually pressure companies in the unorganized sector to either form partnerships or lose market share," concluded the Analyst. "Such activities will lead to the market becoming more formalized and organized."
