Debt Collection Agency Software

Debt collection in itself can be a difficult task, particularly in these fluctuating economic times that have left so many people buried in debt. As anyone knows, that has spent any amount of time working in the field of debt collections it requires the processing a lot of information that is needed when trying to collect outstanding over due debt.

In the past, this mean reams of paper work that was very difficult to handle and analyze once it has been compiled. The fact is, that more and more businesses are now using software that is custom tailored to fit the exact needs that are unique to their particular business.

What debt collection software does, is to eliminate the confusing and cumbersome paperwork and bring all of the truly relevant information up to you in an easy to read and understand format. This means that you can handle far greater numbers of cases in far less time, resulting in better numbers at the end of the day.

Information is power in any business but what good is your information if you do not have it at your finger tips when you need it? With debt collection software that is specifically designed for the debt collection business you do not need to have a computer programmer to operate it.

Simply pop it in your computer or your laptop and everything that you are familiar with including all the terms and phrases that are used in debt collections are right at your fingertips. Graphs, charts and schematics are a click of your mouse away that can turn any data that you have compiled into usable easy to understand material that can be applied immediately to your tasks at hand.

The fact of the matter, is that your competition is probably now using debt collection software, which places them in a dominant position over you if you are not. …

Easy and Flexible Master Pages For Classic ASP

The problem:

Classic Active Server Pages is a still a powerful and flexible way of building websites. The VBScript language is easy to learn and it requires only a text editor to write the web pages. The one drawback to ASP was that making the website look the same on every page was tedious work and it was difficult to make cosmetic changes. Standardizing the look and feel on a website can be difficult. Using the code of an existing website for a different site with a different layout can be impossible.

Many programmers tried to solve the templating issue using ASP’s file include mechanism and that solved part of the problem. Putting different parts of the layout into include files helped but it also spread out the code making maintenance more difficult. If you know anything about ASP include files you know that they are not dynamic – you can’t include one “on the fly” so to speak. Changing the look and feel of a website at runtime was limited to CSS style sheets.

The Solution:

The templating problem in Classic ASP has been solved and the solution is free for any programmer to use. The KudzuASP template engine allows Classic ASP programmers the ability to use HTML template files in the same way that ASP.NET programmers use Master Pages. When using KudzuASP the layout of the website is stored in a simple HTML document that uses special markup tags. KudzuASP uses these markup tags to make high speed function calls back to your ASP page at the points in the template where content is needed to “fill in the blanks”. The result is a highly flexible methodology that allows the HTML template to drive the layout process. If you need to make a change to the layout of an entire website you only need to make that change in the template.

What about that other challenge of changing the look and feel of the website at runtime. KudzuASP beats the old include files method hands down. You can have a completely different look and feel based upon who logged in, what group they belong to, the season of the year or even the time of day — for any reason. When the moment arrives to write the webpage out to the browser you simply specify a different HTML template from the file system or database – it’s that easy!


KudzuASP is a flexible system that provides a lot of templating features like iteration, substitution, conditional inclusion and exclusion of content. It was designed using a flexible component architecture that makes writing and installing your own components incredibly easy. One of the best things about KudzuASP is that it is Open Source and free to use in personal and commercial websites.…

Lithography Printing – Basic Principles

In lithography the printing and non-printing elements are on the very same level. The sophistication of the printing zones is the fact that they are ink-accepting, where the non-printing plate areas are ink-repellent. This effect is created by physical, inter-facial surface phenomena.

Lithographic printing can easily be subdivided to:

– Stone lithography (direct printing technique utilizing a stone printing plate)

– collotype (direct printing method),

– offset printing (indirect printing process), and

– di-litho (direct printing process with offset printing plate).

Lithography was created by Alois Senefelder in 1796. The image to be printed was gripped on the stone with the use of a special ink. The stone was moistened just before it was up, after which the non-image fields of the stone surface did not take on ink.

Collotype is actually another lithography technology. A light-sensitive level of gelatin is exposed on a glass base over the negative and then developed. Places having diverse swelling properties relative to water are produced. After the printing plate has been moistened, differentiated color shade absorption characteristics are generated. Just like stone lithography, collotype is only utilized for artistic goods (and having very short print runs).

Offset printing is the leading lithographic technology. It is an indirect lithographic technology, a situation where the ink is first transferred from the printing plate into a adaptable midpoint carrier – the blanket – and after that onto the substrate.

To obtain an ink-repellent effect on the plate (distinct interaction of printing plate surface and ink), there are two widely used techniques:

– Conventional offset printing technology: Dampening of the printing plate by using dampening solution (water along with additives). The dampening solution is put on the plate in a very fine film by dampening rollers. The non-image fields of the plate are hydrophobic, that's, water-receptive and also the ink accepting surfaces are oleophilic, and are just about 100{90c905eaca51001bdd05d2b9e50215b66b04dff3fb532a24d541d876dbf9d189} unreceptive to water. The film of dampening solution inhibits the transfer of ink. Because this technology is by far essentially the most widespread, the repellent income among the ink and dampening solution is regularly always associated with "offset printing." For that reason, inking and dampening units are required for "offset printing."

-Waterless offset printing technology: The plate surface is mainly ink-repellent, for instance, due to an appropriate layer of silicone. The ink-receptive base zone is exposed by the deliberate interruption of the layer of silicone (just about 2 microns thick). This treatment is known as "waterless offset" (very frequently as "dry offset"). Suitable printing plates and special inks needs to be used for both of those techniques.

The di-litho technology, a lithographic technology in which the printing plate prints directly onto the substrate, was exclusively formed for newspaper printing. The benefit from this technology was that conventional letterpress rotary printing presses could be used. The printing units of these presses have been modified by the installing of a dampening unit. Printing was done with conventional printing plates, suddenless a special coating needed to be applied to them due …
