The Added Benefits of Corporate Travel Credit Cards

Most every agency engages in the practice of allowing more than an average of 13.5 days for a corporate travel customer to pay for tickets issued. If the tickets are issued on a credit card, however, ARC (Airlines Reporting Corporation) does not draft your agency bank account; instead, the airline collects directly from the credit card company. This cash flow benefit is significant in an industry which operates on such a slim profit margin. And there is even more good news! Travel agents can deduct the commission derived from transactions directly from the authorized ARC draft amount. In fact, some agencies whose accounts are nearly 100% credit card do not have their accounts drafted at all; they receive a check every week for the airline commissions earned.

During the hours previously spent worrying about the Tuesday night bank balance, you can now look at the way in which the cc can help you better manage your business. If a significant proportion of your accounts were switched to ccs, could your employees spend their time more productively? After all, the need to process all those statements, or to have an employee research so many unidentified payments, or to post off the accounts receivable would be negligible. Furthermore, the complications of stringent internal cash controls are lessened.

The elimination of the statement-handling responsibilities yields even more profit to your agency. How many of your accounts still demand that an extra copy of the invoice be attached to the statement? How many hours per week are lost to this task? How many payments are delayed because an invoice copy is missing when the statement arrives at the customer's accounting department (incidentally, this a classic manner in which corporations delay payments and, thus improve their cash float)? How much does it cost for you to print all those extra invoice copies and statements? Paper alone may comprise as much as one percent of your commission revenue.

By encouraging your clients to use credit cards you can:

1. Earn your own interest income on funds previously "invested" with the ARC on behalf of your clients;

2. Significantly improve your cash position;

3. Save dollars previously spent on forms and payroll;

4. Benefit from fewer complications and increased productivity / profitability.

The credit card benefits both the buyer and the seller.

All of the internal control benefits which accrue to the corporation that uses some form of credit card system lead to other ancillary benefits:

1. The corporation benefits from a significant cash float-the travel is paid for when the credit card bill becomes due.

2. A company which accurately reflects its financial position by accruing its travel expenses in the month in which they are incurred can demonstrate its aggressiveness in controlling the balance sheet (ie, recognizing the expense, but not paying for it until a later date).

3. The client needs to issue only one, or at most two, checks per month for the bulk of travel related expenditures.

4. Use of a credit card reduces significantly the amount of cash a corporation has tied up in travel advances.

5. Most of the major credit card companies offer free life insurance for passage booked on the credit card. This not only adds peace of mind to the traveler, it can also translate to a significant savings to the company in its life insurance benefits exposure.

Would you believe that you might reap bountiful benefits without doing any more than providing the service of making corporations aware of the value of using a corporate credit card? The various companies offering credit cards will fully explain the services offered, and if your targeted account is large enough, will probably even follow-up on your introduction and sell their product directly on behalf of your agency!

Business Travel Tips!

When you travel the world around you, it changes the world within you. That was one of my quotes a few years ago from my travel blog when I was blogging the World Tour. It holds true to this day, in my opinion.

I have traveled a lot these past 3 months, in particular, and am often asked how I do it. How do I maintain my energy, my focus, my connections, my health. So here are my best travel tips – try them, you’ll like them.

TIP #1 – MAINTAIN REGULAR SLEEP HABITS. This is normal for me, anyway, whether I am travelling or not. But when I am on the road, it is critical for me to get my sleep. I adjust to the time zone I am in and go with it. I ensure the room is dark, cool, quiet and normally, when at conferences, for example, I always room alone. I know that many people find great joy sharing a room when attending events. That doesn’t work for me because I get enough stimulation during the business days and meetings – I don’t need the additional stimulation of someone in my room wanting to de-brief for the next few hours. It’s my down time so that I can get mentally ready for a restful sleep. That also means limited electronics or TV.

TIP #2 – GET REGULAR EXERCISE. These days, that can mean just counting your steps in the airports – they are so HUGE! It takes a lot of time and a lot of steps to get around. I hired a personal trainer this year and, when I am at home, it makes a huge difference. When I am on the road, I stay accountable, get my exercise and post photos for my trainer so I show evidence of my commitment. At a minimum, I do some Yoga moves which helps with stretching after long plane rides. I bring my exercise DVD with me, too – me and Jillian Roberts – look out world!

TIP #3 – I MAKE GOOD FOOD CHOICES. There’s not really any reason to look at a menu when I travel. I know what I regularly eat for breakfast, lunch and supper – now, remember my 80/20 rule. When I am somewhere special (like in Africa – I WILL have the chocolate croissants… just sayin’!) – I will try different foods. But for normal travel – I stick with my regular food choices – and rarely will I have a drink when I am on the road. It ruins my sleep. I know it. So why do it?

TIP #4: I KEEP MY GRATITUDE JOURNAL. Next to my exercise clothes, my Gratitude Journal is the one thing that goes in the suitcase. It IS when I travel, that I realize and recognize what a blessed life I live and I want to keep my attitude of gratitude.

TIP #5: KEEP A SENSE OF HUMOR. Travel these days can be frustrating, challenging and difficult. There are many things beyond my control. It is so important to keep a sense of humor – and I do that by people watching. I love it! Most people have their face glued to their electronic devices – I just sit, with my latte, and watch. It’s great for keeping stress levels low. (good quality chocolate and a Starbucks latte makes me a happy traveler! – find your happy place, too!)

I have travelled a lot and will continue to do so. My travels tips are not rocket science – they are pretty basic and yet they work. Try them – you’ll like them too.

7 Tips To Avoid Business Travel Stress

Traveling for business reasons oftentimes cause a lot of stress to an individual. Stress is not new and in fact, a large number of people suffer from it. Are you still searching for ways on how to avoid business travel stress? These tips may come in handy.

1. If you don’t want to experience any stress during your air business travel, make it a point to consider the alternative airports in your country of destination. Usually you can experience less delay, less overbooking, and fewer flights in these airports.

2. A map is very important to have. You can avoid being stressed during your business travel if you have a map within arm’s reach. It is really less stressful on your part if you know your way around. You can even print out maps on the net; and to protect your map, be sure to put it inside a plastic folder.

3. Another thing that you can do to avoid stress is to find the best hotel that can meet your needs as a business traveler. The hotel should have at least an internet connection and easy access to photocopiers and fax machines.

4. Electricity differs from one country to another, so don’t forget to bring your voltage adaptors. Plug adapters are sometimes needed for telephone jacks and electrical plugs. If you’re not sure what things you will need, you can always visit a travel store.

5. Are you still stressed? Here’s another way to avoid business travel stress; use a call card because phone bills are rather expensive in hotels. Every time you call your family, check your voice or email, make sure that you use corporate credit cards or phone cards.

6. Have your important travel documents like airline tickets, passport, credit cards, travel insurance, and itinerary photocopied. This will serve as your protection against theft. You can have as many copies as you need or like, bring some with you and leave the rest at home.

7. Local travel stores can even offer you with great protective luggage. Be also warned about pickpockets when traveling. You don’t want to be stressed out when you find out that your cell phone or wallet is missing.

Business Travel Insurance: Important?

Those in the business world can appreciate that hurdles can come out of nowhere, especially when you have a tight deadline or can’t afford to have any more stress outside of what the job is outlining. While travel can be smooth, it can also throw some curve balls that can give you a major bump and headache. Travel insurance for businesses trips can be helpful to your company.

Like travel insurance that you take out for a personal trip, the coverage is going to depend on the particular plan that you choose. Some plans offer trip interruption but make sure that it’s a covered reason. Other plans may have coverage for a trip delay. If so, it’s important to know how long that delay needs to be since it can vary from policy to policy and/or company to company. Whatever it is that you are looking for in a policy, make sure that you go over all of the policies and choose the one that best matches your needs. I would strongly recommend that you speak with the insurance agent to get all your questions answered. This is not one of those times where not knowing won’t hurt you: it can and will hurt you if you didn’t read the fine print or didn’t ask all your questions.

Did the business deal fall through and the meeting was cancelled? Many travel insurance policies also have the option to help cover cancelling the already paid trip. Again, always check that this is actually in the policy that you choose. It’s also important that you know if there’s a specific amount related to this.

Needless to say, you should go with a reputable travel insurance company and ask as many questions as you need answered. Although your travel agent can guide you to a good company, you should still do your due diligence. I would personally go with a larger, well-known company rather than a smaller, lesser-known company tat promises you lower prices. Please also remember that a travel agent is not an insurance agent. They are another person in your corner that will fight for you, but ultimately your questions and concerns should be aimed at the insurance agent that’s handling your policies and claims.

In the end, investing in travel insurance for your business trips can be a very great move. While it does require some legwork, it does mean having some comfort knowing that things are not that out of control. It gives you just one more tool to get your job done at the end of the day and one step closer to closing the deal.

5 Tips to Help You Prepare for International Business Travel

Travel overseas for business can be a fun adventure, but it also needs to be taken seriously. Before traveling to another country, whether for work or pleasure, it’s important to learn the customs and procedures of your destination, while also preparing yourself for your trip.

As a business traveler, you’re not only representing your country of origin to all of those you meet, but you are also a representative of your company. It’s important to be knowledgeable about the country you are planning on visiting as a way to show respect.

Besides requiring the correct documents like a visa and passport, there are other obligations you will likely need to complete before making your way overseas. Many of these requirements are specific to a particular destination based on the laws and regulations for the countries you are visiting. Make sure you do your homework well in advance so you know each of these requirements.

5 Tips for Overseas Business Travel

International travel for business can be a very exciting opportunity. You not only get to see new and interesting parts of the world, but you even get paid while doing it. In order to have the best experience possible, there are things you can do in advance to prepare. Here are five tips to help execute the perfect international business trip.

  1. Create an Organized Itinerary: Make sure that your days are packed with opportunities to help your company. Scheduling time for appointments, meetings, and personal time is very important to executing a beneficial international business trip. An itinerary should be a good guide for your trip’s goals and achievements. Because you do not want to waste any time on this trip, it’s better to plan in advance to take full advantage of the opportunity.
  2. Learn about the Culture and Customs: Before landing in said country, it’s important to understand the environment, culture and practices of this region. Knowing up-to-date news and information about your international travel destinations will help you avoid inappropriate comments or disrespectful behavior. Not only is it important to understand the culture, but it is also beneficial to know protocols, customs and etiquette as well. This includes things like: common greetings, religious practices, business manners, dietary practices, and acceptable humor.
  3. Learn the Native Tongue: While not every business trip requires learning a whole new language, it’s always advisable to seek out some basic vocabulary for the region you are visiting. The use of a translator might be beneficial as well. Communication is a huge part of business and breaking down those barriers will only help you with your business endeavors.
  4. Protect Yourself: Traveling internationally can be exciting, but also very stressful and sometimes dangerous. A new environment can mean new hazards and threats. Don’t avoid protecting yourself to save money. Sometimes travel insurance is a valuable way to reduce the risk of health crises and other types of risks.
  5. Stay Connected: Plan to use your communication devices while staying overseas. Make sure that your plan is available in other countries, or rent a cellphone from the airport. Communicating back and forth between your headquarters, while in a different country, is often an important part of international business. Communicating with your coworkers back at the office is an important part of international business travel.

Traveling internationally for business can be a new adventure. It’s becoming increasingly common as more and more U.S. companies also have offices overseas in places like Ireland, Costa Rica, the United Kingdom, and Hong Kong. In 2014, Forbes rated Denmark as the #1 country for business.

Regardless of where you are traveling, planning ahead helps to make the experience as positive as possible. Know the culture of the places you are visiting, and when possible, make ongoing communication a vital part of your trip. Try to maximize your time spent overseas by preparing in advance for productivity. The more organized you are, the more time you’ll likely have to enjoy some sightseeing and leisure. Always remain respectful, while keeping your goal in sight.

The Mobile Office – Organizing Your Car for Business Travel

I wish I had ____ with me.” You fill in the blank. How many times have you been offsite, meeting with a client, only to discover you were missing a form or a brochure that would have helped you wrap up a discussion?

Whether you are in sales, real estate, consulting or a variety of other jobs, travel is usually involved. Even when you spend most of your day in an office, you still have to travel back and forth, often bringing work with you, or you might be meeting a client for lunch, and have that, “I wish I had…” comment running through your mind.

Here are some basics that would benefit everyone.

Front Seat Calendar: Since everyone is now reachable at any time by cell phone, you would want to have a calendar handy, whether paper or electronic. If you use an electronic calendar but are not syncing with your PDA, then you can periodically print out a monthly calendar and carry that with you.

Notepad: If you have to pull over for an extended talk with a client, you want to make notes on the conversation. Do not count on storing everything in your head for later. Write it down now.

Index Cards: Carry these with you at all times. They can go in your shirt pocket, purse, briefcase, and car. Whenever something comes up that you need to do or want to remember, write it down on an index card. When you get back to the office, staple that to a full sheet of paper and place it in your Daily Action file.

Mileage Log: If you have it close at hand, you will be more likely to remember to record the miles traveled. It is so much harder to do this once a month or to recreate the data at the end of a tax year.

CDs: If you want to make good use of all the travel time, this is an opportunity to listen to recorded business books or to conference break-out sessions. On the other hand, if it is advantageous for you to relax before a meeting or while headed home, pick some music that unwinds you.

To store these materials, you might consider an auto organizer with multiple compartments, one that ties over the headrest and sits against the passenger seat. It provides easy access. When you have a passenger, you simply move it around so that it hangs in back of the seat, still within reach.

Have a zippered plastic case for extra pens, pencils, and other basic desk supplies. You do not want all of these to be loose in case of sudden stops where they could become flying projectiles.

Back Seat Casual Reading: Have a folder of materials handy to grab any time you have unplanned open time-stopped traffic or arriving early for an appointment. It will allow you to effectively utilize your time while you wait, and in turn will lower the potential stress caused by the delay.

Map Book: Even if you have a GPS system, it is a good idea to have a backup for emergencies.

Umbrella: Do not leave this in your trunk. It does not cover you when there is a sudden downpour while you are heading into a meeting.

Trunk Forms and Brochures: Use a small travel box or crate that holds hanging file folders. That way you can keep a supply in the car without having to guess what you may need every time you head out.

Product Samples: Get plastic bins that can contain your products. When you have them organized in containers, it leaves more room in your trunk.

Grippers: These pieces cling to your trunk carpeting and keep things from sliding around. Place them strategically at the corners of your containers.

If you use something up while you are out, make a note on an index card so you will remember to replenish that item when you get back.

Returning to your office, be sure to take out all of the new materials-order forms, business cards, conference bags, ToDo index cards-and bring them in right away. Replenish anything that you have used up. This will ensure that you always have what you need at hand, and your car does not become a clutter trap.

Your car is a reflection of you and your methods. If you find yourself embarrassed or apologizing when someone unexpectedly has to ride with you, make changes today.

The preparation will add to your confidence as you head out to your next meeting knowing that you have what you need. You are in control and you look the part.

Business Travel Agents Tips: Things to Know About Flight Delay Compensation

You arrive at the airport, your flight is delayed or even cancelled? Flight delay compensation is an important topic travellers should know about, especially when it comes to business travel. Whether it is due to bad weather such as snow, a security alert or a strike, there are many reasons for flight delays and cancellations. But whatever the reason, it means you have to stay involuntarily longer at the airport before you can travel to your destination or back home. Plus, you may be entitled to flight delay compensation or a refund. Here are some important rules helping you to make sure you are not left out of pocket and make the most of the involuntarily gained extra time.

1. Know your rights

From getting refunded for all your food and drink expenses to getting a hotel or some alternative transportation, you should know what you are entitled to. So, if your flight is cancelled or heavily delayed, you’re protected by the Denied Boarding Regulation (EU rule 261/2004 and repealing regulation (EEC) No 295/91). Unless ‘extraordinary circumstances’ apply, you can claim a financial flight delay compensation for cancelled or heavily delayed flights totalling:

€250 (£210) for inter-EU flights of 930 miles or less

€400 (£330) for flights between 930 and 1,860 miles

€600 (£500) for other journeys (long-haul flights)

It applies for EU flights, which includes any flights leaving from or arriving at an EU airport with an EU-based airline. Plus, your compensation may be reduced by 50% depending on flight distance and the ultimate arrival time. This means the reduced compensation applies to short haul flights within two hours, to medium haul flights within three hours and to long haul flights within four hours. But remember, flight delay compensation is only applicable if it is the airline’s fault (i.e. no act of God applies, such as natural catastrophes, incl. earth quakes, volcanoes or bad weather or political unrest). To claim flight delay compensation simply write to your airline stating the flight number, date, length of delay and reason for the claim. Sometimes airlines try offering you vouchers as flight delay compensation, but you don’t have to accept them and can ask for a cash refund instead. If your airline refuses to compensate you, contact the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for support and advice. Note, technical faults, unless they result from events which, by their nature or origin, are not part of the normal exercise of the airline, do not count as extraordinary circumstances.

Your right to reimbursement comes into play, if the delay is a minimum of five hours. You should get a reimbursement within seven days, for the cost of the flight ticket, the part of the trip not travelled and the parts already travelled, provided they are then useless. Where applicable, you may be even entitled to the earliest possible return flight to your departure destination or rerouting along with a refund.

During the travel disruption you should receive assistance from your airline, including food, drinks, two free telephone calls, faxes or emails, as well as accommodation and transport transfers to and from the hotel – where applicable. This is regardless of the reason for the delay/cancellation.

2. Networking

It’s always good to make friends, so why not use the downtime for extending your network. Try to see the positive of dealing with flight delays. Seen from a practical level, you may be able to share costs, e.g. for a taxi into town. Also being friendly towards the airport staff may prove helpful. Especially in these kinds of situations they encounter a lot of stressed and unfriendly customers, although the delay/cancellation is none of their personal fault. If you are friendly they are much more likely to help you, maybe even give you some extra advice.

3. Gate-crash the airport lounges

Those of you flying Business Class or being members of corporate airline loyalty or frequent flyer schemes will already be in the VIP lounge enjoying a nice drink and peanuts. It’s a far quieter and relaxed environment. This may be the best option when having to wait for a delayed flight. But if you are neither flying business class, nor a member of a loyalty scheme, be advised that in some cases these lounges are not exclusive and you may be able to access them for a fee of around £20. This could be much cheaper than getting your food and drink from an airport bar.

Furthermore, desk agents in these lounges are often authorised to make fast, last-minute reservations’ changes and there are usually far fewer people ahead of you in the queue. At least you can enjoy the Wi-Fi and free snacks (or booze!) while you have to wait. In the case of a flight cancellation or major delay, and you are at the airport immediately contact the airline you are travelling with. To change the ticket and get advice on the available options, it is best to go to your airline’s ticket desk, as soon as possible. Your business travel management company should continually provide pro-active telephone support throughout, as Flightline Travel does.

Why Your Business Needs A Corporate Travel Company

As a business owner, you know that your time is limited. So, you need to make sure that you employ it the best way you can.

If there is one thing that most business owners tend to do that take them too much time is traveling? Even though you might need to do is frequently, the truth is that when you use a regular airline, the most unexpected things can happen, leading you to even more time waste. So, one of the best things you can do is to hire a corporate travel company. Here's why:

# 1: Save Time:

As we already mentioned above, this is one of the main reasons why you absolutely need a corporate travel company. When you have a more efficient booking process, you're leaving your employees with more time for their actual tasks.

# 2: Get The Best Fares:

Even though you may already have your personal agent working on your travels for you and your business, the truth is that when you hire a corporate travel company, you'll be able to enjoy even more savings.

# 3: The Best Support:

When you work with a corporate travel agency, you can be sure they will be there, for you, round the clock. The truth is that these companies have local representatives that can help your staff to get everything they need in case there is any travel interruption.

# 4: Dealing and Overcoming With Travel Problems:

If you have been handling travels alone, you know problems can come up anytime. From having your flight canceled with or without a reason, cabin strikes, among so many others, are becoming more frequent and can jeopardize your business. When you already have a corporate travel company, you just need to call them and they will make all the necessary changes so that you can still have your flight.

# 5: Professional Service:

When you work with a corporate travel you can be sure you will have the best professionals working with you. One of the best things is that you will have an annual meetings with them. This meeting is extremely important for both parts since it will allow you to tell the corporate travel agency your feedback, and for them, this is a great way to keep improving their quality.

To make sure that you stop wasting your precious time and money, just give corporate travel a call or fill out the form. You can be sure they are one of the best and that they will take good care of you and your business.

Some Common Misconceptions About Business Travel

Whenever you come across a business traveler walking around the airport, there are many thoughts that cross your mind. Let me begin by warning you, a lot of these might be wrong.

Business travelers face plenty of challenges. Always racing against time, they are constantly going from one airport to another, catching one flight to another. Lack of sleep, longer than expected working hours and sometimes even skipping meals are what a lot of travelers can tell about their trips. Naturally, it is not easy to cope up with such a routine and only the toughest manage to survive.

Traveling faces a lot of misconceptions. Here are some of the top of these.

1. It's Always about Pleasures

Typically, whenever you hear of business travelers a lot of people think this trip is all about pleasures. Of course, all they can think about at that time is a paid trip, free air travel and all the other expenses.

It's true that most of the companies pay for the entire trip. However, it's way more than free meals and a stay at luxurious hotels. A business travel person often have to sacrifice a lot of their leisure time in order to meet deadlines and fulfill tasks.

2. They Travel in Style

It's true that business travelers mostly have a charismatic personality and no matter how many insomniac days they've lived, they'd always travel in style. But the definition of style for many is entirely a different one. When you think of business travelers, you are automatically inclined to think that they must be traveling through the luxurious classes of the airline and staying at the most royal hotels.

The truth is, not many companies are able to afford this. Many business travelers commonly fly through the economy class and stay at the budgeted hotels.

3. Formal Clothing

It's always desired to arrive at a meeting looking your best. However, the luggage restrictions can often make it hard to carry your best suit to a foreign land for the business meetings. It's a huge relief that the businessmen all around the globe understand this restriction.

So the next time you're eager to spot a traveler, they don't always have to be in a suit to qualify as one. A fine looking pair of trousers and dress shirt would do an equally good job. A suit is no longer a qualification criterion of being a businessman.

4. A Lot of Work is Done

Of course, the trip is planned to get certain projects fulfilled. However, this is not always the case. Business traveling may not be always as successful as what the company has planned.

At times, business trips mean no work actually gets done. However, that trip might open more pathways to future successes. The trip might keep you very busy, but the company might not get the desired results.

Reduce Your Business Travel Cost to Zero With Video Conferencing Solutions

Business travel cost is a nightmare for several organizations. The sales representatives are required to travel across the globe for meetings that ultimately result in more business for the organization, but regulating that cost is a serious concern for the admins and finance departments. It is primarily because the expenditure is a necessity. But what if you could just minimize that cost to nothing? What if your representatives could meet anyone around the world anytime without incurring any cost?

Technology has come a long way in the past few years and one of its fruitful offerings is Video Conferencing Solutions.

What is Video Conferencing?

Just like you carry out a conversation through your mobile devices across continents without paying a hefty amount, video conferencing is the technology that allows you to have a face to face conversation instead. Like any other technology, it has come a long way ever since the origin of its capabilities in the 1970s. Earlier, no standard protocols existed on which video conferencing could rely upon. It was an extremely expensive affair. However, with cloud technology coming in, we have extremely affordable networks. Interoperability of video teleconferencing systems is virtually guaranteed now that standards and protocols have been clearly established. This is the reason why many firms are now investing in video conferencing devices and replacing the way conferences and meetings were held traditionally. It allows the company officials to meet their clients anytime, without actually traveling to their location. In addition, they can also collaborate among themselves even when they are not present in the organization.

Which video conferencing solutions are right for your business?

Yes, it is extremely convenient and allows any organization to save a major expenditure on travel. But there are several providers in the market today which has opened up a stiff competition among them. This is partially beneficial for the customers but has also given rise to several queries:

  • What solution will be the right one for my business?
  • How is video conferencing different from remote desktop support or web meetings?
  • Is video conferencing secure to discuss sensitive information?
  • Which video conferencing solutions are available in the market for different room sizes including executive room, small meeting room, big conference room and auditoriums?
  • Is there an instance where I can use video device over Wi-Fi?
  • Can I replace my IP phone with video endpoint but still retain the same extension?
  • I have no budget to buy a license for the multiparty feature but I need the service. Is there any other option I can explore?
  • Can I use my Skype for business with Telepresence?
  • Can I call my US and UK sales persons on their mobile devices via video device?
  • How secure is video conferencing as a means of communication?
  • If my video device went down, what will I use as the SLA and backup for my device?
  • I’m having a problem connecting branch offices and meeting rooms within a single video call. How can I be helped?

These are a few of the questions that are asked by customers generally. It is difficult to answer them all by generalizing everything because every customer has a different requirement; they all have different architectures, different allocated spaces, and different budgets. To provide the perfect solution, any provider requires all the necessary details so they can analyze and suggest the best options.

Types of Video Conferencing Solutions
