In a word, it is: efficiency.
The company’s “platform-as-a-service” helps companies do things better, and that translates into a boost for the bottom line, Travia explains.
Interestingly, this is not a case of the cobbler’s children having no shoes; BOS’s first and most important client was itself, and Travia said that “as a pre-revenue organisation going into revenue next month, we have been able to produce more, with less cash, and get there faster”.
The crux of its offering is collecting and sharing information, and in the process “turning it into knowledge”, which can be profitably shared to enable fact-based decisions to be made more quickly.
The company recently signed a transformational deal with Ag-I Solutions, a software development and licensing business headquartered in Hong Kong, that will enable BOS to re-bade some Ag-I products, paving the way for the release of BOS’s BOS360 Work Patterns platform.
Travia is confident businesses will be introduced in its platform, and the bigger the business, the more efficiency savings its platforms will deliver, all for a small investment.
Better still, none of Travia’s vastly experienced team has ever come across “anything that comes close” to what the BOS360 platform offers, and it’s all protected by a patent.
“On that basis we are very confident that, with time, we will become globally recognised as a true provider of a work pattern, and you only need to work out how many workers there are in the world to work out what that would mean for GOS GLOBAL in its global ambitions,” Travia said.
BOS’s ambition is “to own this space worldwide”. Travia predicts it will be more viral than the use of Facebook.
So, while BOS’s model is to provide the licences to its distribution channel partner, and they will handle the implementation side, much of the marketing should be done by word-of-mouth.

TechFinancials Inc JV 'paying dividends' says COO Jeremy Lange The good news keeps on coming for resurgent financial trading services provider TechFinancials Inc (LON:TECH), which is to pocket a million dollars in dividend payments.

The US$1,020,000 pay-out is from its 51%-owned subsidiary, DragonFinancials, which has declared a US$2mln dividend in respect of the first nine months of 2016.

TechFinancials COO Jeremy Lange tells Proactive: ''We started out the joint venture with Optionfortune on the first of January this year   and the relationship is paying dividends''.

''The JV has done amazingly well, so we see results on target, the dividend is beyond our expectations this year and we're expecting good results to the end of this year''.

TechFinancials, which last week raised earnings guidance for the year, said it would look in the new year at the possibility of resuming dividend payments.

SyndicateRoom chief highlights 'astonishing growth potential' of early-stage companies SyndicateRoom's Chief executive Goncalo de Vasconcelos ran Proactive through the company's latest research on the outlook for early-stage companies in the UK.

The report, 'Rise of the Growth Hunters', analyses sentiment and expectations of over 1,000 retail investors alongside five years of company growth data from Beauhurst.

de Vasconcelos says early-stage companies may well be the route to higher returns for investors, adding that they've experienced a rate of growth in the past five years that is more than 6 times faster than that of the FTSE all-share index.

''When you think about it, it's an astonishing comparison on the growth that those companies enjoyed compared to the main market''.

Mirada Plc boss hails successful large-scale rollout of Iris platform Digital TV services specialist Mirada Plc (LON:MIRA) is enjoying improved cash flow after successfully rolling out its Iris Inspire platform on Televisa Group's Izzi network.

In its half-year results, the group revealed turnover rose to £2.78mln in the six months to the end of September from £2.26mln the year before, with the Americas accounting for three-quarters of revenues, in line with expectations.

On just why the period was so significant chief executive Jose Luis Vazquez tells Proactive: ''We were able to launch to Televisa's five cable networks  without any technical glitches, it's going really well and the performance of the video-on-demand solution is going extremely well''.

''We announced a few weeks ago our milestone of 500,000 set-top boxes .. and we've made an update today that we are now at 525,000 so it's growing ... but it's still far away from where we're going to reach''.

The group now has sales and marketing representation in India, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe as well as the Americas, and around half of the business in the company’s pipeline is outside of Mirada’s traditional Americas heartland.

Minds + Machines group Ltd 'very pleased' with growth in China Top level internet domain registry business Minds + Machines Group Ltd (LON:MMX) has passed a major milestone in its Chinese business. The group said it has now performed more than half a million registrations in the People’s Republic for its .vip domain, which is not bad going, as it only went on sale in May of this year.
Chief executive Toby Hall tells Proactive: ''We've had a good 23% growth since the half-year point there so we're very pleased indeed''. Hall went on to say the milestone was achieved without making use of the “fremium” sales models, adding ''for us there were many marketing strategies that can be used to launch a domain but for us maintaining the price is key for establishing the long term value. What's particularly reassuring is this significant level of registration has been done without any discount of our standard price''.

Blur Group PLC’s Tim Allen highlights the “significant evolution” of its marketplace Making physical goods available represents ‘a big step and significant evolution’ in Blur Group’s professional services marketplace, says chief financial officer Tim Allen.

“We’ve been talking to significant corporates, and customers over the last eighteen months and while we’ve been successful in partnering with them to reduce spend on their indirect services, we’ve been hearing ‘how can you help me on my physical goods spend’ as well,” he said in an interview.

“So by listening to our customers we took a decision to add that ability to source goods through our marketplace as well, which really means that we’re a complete solution now.”
