|Enda en ny kunde for MBN
|Har vert på hjemmesiden til MBN,der står United Center oppført på kundelisten,den er ny idag.
Er det noen som har noe kjennskap til dette selskapet?
Det ser ut som mbn får stadig nye kunder,nå står 21 selskaper oppført på kundelisten på deres hjemmesider.
|Sier det ikke noe om selskapet at dere skriver om det så snart de får en ny kunde !!!!!!!!!!!! Hele 21 kunder til nå !!!!
Det sies ingenting om størrelsen på en EVENTUELL kontrakt. Uansett så er de ikke store nok til at selskapet ønsker å meddele det til OSE.
|Jeg har fulgt MBN i vel 2 år og er fremdeles optimist.
Jeg ser flere nye kunder på denne kundelisten som ihvertfall ikke jeg har fått med meg tidligere. Spesiellt interessant er GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) som er en megastort konsern innen legemiddel industrien.
Her er noen presentasjoner fra selskapenes egne hjemmesider:
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is a world leading research-based pharmaceutical company with a powerful combination of skills and resources that provides a platform for delivering strong growth in today's rapidly changing healthcare environment.
GSK's mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer.
Headquartered in the UK and with operations based in the US, the new company is one of the industry leaders, with an estimated seven per cent of the world's pharmaceutical market.

The Company has a proven track record of consistent record growth in sales and earnings, and has become a leading consolidator in four highly fragmented segments of the printing industry: envelopes, commercial printing, labels and printing for distributors.
Mail-Well is committed to providing excellent customized and full-service printing services to its customers in regional and national markets throughout North America.
United Center (Tror det må være denne):
The United Center is a privately owned, state-of-the-art 960,000 square-foot, multi-use entertainment facility. Home of the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League and the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association, the United Center has hosted the best musical performers, sporting events and family shows in the industry, in addition to being the host venue for the 1996 Democratic National Convention. A commitment to superior service makes the United Center one of the top venues in the world. See why over 15,000,000 guests have walked through our doors in under 8 years!
Q1-resultatet var kanskje ikke spesiellt bra, men husk at MBN alltid har presisert store variasjoner kan oppstå i Q-rapportene avhengig av når på året de inngår kontrakter med nye kunder. I Q1 står det jo også at avtaler inngått i 1.kvartal vil først bli inntektstført i 2. kvartal.
Tiden vil vise om MBN blir en vinner.
|In The Money
|Forhåpentligvis vil kundemassen akselerere. Dette er nødvendig for å bedre økonomien i selskapet. Ser vi en god økning av kunder nærmeste tid - kan dette bli moro.
|Har de virkelig fått enda en kunde??
Da går sikkert tapet ned fra 2,2 til 2,19 mill$ neste kvartal.
|Hva betyr egentlig den beskjedne kundemassen?
Antall kunder er ikke av betydning så lenge de selger noen få lisenser. Det viser også tallene som er så dårlig at pesimisme burde vært mye mer av enn det er idag!!!
|Jeg tror det kan vere lurt å handle mbn på dette nivået,aksjonærmøtet er om noen få dager og jeg ser ikke bort fra at det kan komme noen gode nyheter derfra.

Built in 1994 to replace the crumbling Chicago Stadium, the United Center is a gigantic piece of corporate architecture. It's largeness is measured at 960,000 square feet and it cost about $175 million to construct. Home to the Bulls, Blackhawks, concerts, and extravaganzas like the ice capades, it usually stays filled near capacity. The Bulls glory days appear to be not only dead but repeatedly dying. (If you look closely at the Jordan-in-flight statue outside you may catch him frowning.) The Blackhawks haven't won a title since the 1960s and seats are usually available for their games. The stadium fits 21,500 people for Bulls games and a few less for hockey. Bulls tickets range from $10 for a nosebleed to $450 for a courtside seat to watch the Bulls play "basketball." In 1996 the Democratic National Convention took place here in all its splendor. Rock legends such as the Stones and Springsteen have played a few gigs here on their second journey through their youth. The sound quality for a big arena show is mediocre, but the sightlines are decent enough for you to enjoy your show. It's clean and new and a lot like other NBA arenas with logos plastered on the sides, or, in this case, on the top. (Jeremy Fredeen)

About Us | Jobs | Advertising Info
|United Center er neppe den største kunden til MBN, men så lenge den bidrar positivt til resulatet så er de hjertelige velkommen! :-)
Men, som sagt, dette er ikke akkurat vendepunktet til MBN. Hvor lenge det er til det er det vanskelig å anslå, men dersom det ikke er så altfor store inntektsforskyvninger i Q2-salget, kan det være en pekepinn. Inntil da er det eneste som kan vedlikeholde/øke kursen:
1. Positive nyheter på generalforsamlingen (og da snakker jeg om KUNDENYHETER og ikke at Mr. Bacon TROR at blablabla...)
2. Jevnlige nyheter om nye kunder og da helst i form av børsmeldinger og ikke gjemt bort på MBN-siden.
Uteblir dette....ja da tror jeg kursen mye mer ned før Q2.

Grainger Licenses MediaBin Platform to Manage Corporate Product Images
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2001--
Leading North American Provider of Maintenance, Repair and
Operating Supplies One of Many Blue-Chip Companies Who Turn to
MediaBin for Content Management of Thousands of Images
MediaBin, Inc. announced today that W.W. Grainger, Inc. (NYSE: GWW) is the latest company to license the MediaBin(TM) platform to manage over 200,000 of their product images.
Grainger, the leading North American provider of maintenance, repair and operating supplies, services and related information to businesses and institutions, will use the MediaBin platform to format, store, retrieve, and update its product images automatically for greater speed-to-market, control and accuracy.
MediaBin will enable Grainger to process and manage its thousands of product images by creating a central storehouse for all the images. From this database, Grainger employees will be able to access any image they need at any time. Through the MediaBin web browser, images can be downloaded in a variety of different formats needed to accommodate print or web applications. For example, Grainger's webmaster can retrieve an image for the site as a thumbnail-sized JPEG, while the catalog production team can retrieve that same image in a high resolution EPS format.
MediaBin eliminates time-consuming, manual processing and removes the potential for human error. MediaBin also eradicates redundant storage, removing instances of unmanageable archives and confusion over the current version of an image. Finally, because images are accessible via a standard browser, the right images are available to all authorized users throughout the company.
"The market demand for MediaBin speaks to a critical need for brand control, as evidenced by our blue-chip customers like Grainger, Ford, Georgia-Pacific and others, whose market share depends on brand consistency and integrity," said John Bacon, CEO of MediaBin. "A company highly dependent on product images, Grainger recognized the need for superior image management and a scalable infrastructure to remain competitive in a fast-moving environment.

Making Web content updates easier for people
In the business world, Web sites are no longer the red-headed stepchild whose care is relegated to a ponytail-sporting "Webmaster."
Managing Web site content -- text, graphics, pictures and video -- is fast becoming a multibillion-dollar industry, climbing from approximately $880 million in 1999 up to $10 billion by 2004, according to Andy Warzecha, vice president of electronic business strategies at META Group Inc., a Stamford, Conn.-based industry analysis firm.
The demand for content management software and services has evolved in the last 18 months. That change began when companies -- Internet-based as well as brick-and-mortar -- started treating their Web sites as showrooms. They wanted to be able to adjust the look and feel of the site at will, just as a showroom manager would tweak the lighting and dust the s*****s.
"If you're going to run a business on your Web site, there are going to be four or five departments that need to be involved, from legal experts to creative," said Joe Ruck, senior vice president of marketing at Calif.-based Interwoven Inc., (Nasdaq: IWOV) where the client list includes BellSouth Corp. and The Coca-Cola Co.
The latest content management software enables people with basic computer literacy -- such as the Windows Office suite -- to manipulate Web site information. Armed with these tools, more employees can become part of the team that makes Web site changes as needed.
Consistency is key. At large organizations with multiple Web sites linked together, changes need to fit into an overall "feel" or template. Content management software makes it possible for employees without a programming degree to create, edit, and manage Web pages.
"If you go to a Web site and lose interest after the first time, that's not good," Ruck said. "You have to build interest."
That means manipulating Web information, with pages changing hourly or daily if need be. One example of this is up-to-the-minute news updates, such as those found on MSN or Yahoo! and most other web portals. The ability to manipulate Web site information -- text, sophisticated graphics and streaming video -- is vital, yet it is too important a task to be entrusted to a few individuals with sophisticated technical know-how.
"It's a losing battle to hire technical resources to do this," Warzecha said. "These technical resources know absolutely nothing in terms of the business importance of this content."
So instead of relying on a Webmaster for day-to-day Web site changes, large organizations are relying on software that current employees can easily learn to use.
Most software solutions for streamlining content management use a new Web design language known as XML (extensible markup language.) Up until recently, most web pages were laid out in HTML (hypertext markup language.) The main difference is that XML documents are "human readable" even before a browser translates them onto a Web page, making them more friendly to users. HTML documents, for instance, have coded tags such as "H1" for "large print" and "B" for "bold." In comparison, XML uses tags in plain English, such as "author" and "email."
Different market segments
For now, the new software solutions for content management are fractured, with no one company offering the whole solution.
Atlanta-based MediaBin Inc., for example, concentrates on the visual image niche. MediaBin software manages the creation of copies of images, giving users the power to manipulate the size and shape of the image.
"Processes that used to take lots of people now can be done on a server," said Burt Smith, vice president of marketing at MediaBin, which changed its name this year from Iterated Systems Inc. Using MediaBin's software, an employee can easily manipulate a product photo -- taking it from a Web site to a PowerPoint presentation or a billboard in Times Square.
"What MediaBin allows you to do is not keep every copy around but just keep one single copy, and then in a manufacturing `just-in-time' fashion create all the various formats and flavors you need," Smith said.
While MediaBin's niche is stationary images, Smith said it may come out with some products for video in the future.
The potential market for content management extends across the Internet, from brick-and-mortar companies that use their Web sites to build image and answer consumer inquiries as well as Internet-based businesses.
"Anyone who has a Web site has content management issues," said Richard Welke, director of the e-Commerce Institute at Georgia State University.
Web content management software is also streamlining e-procurement, the process where companies order materials from suppliers online. In these virtual catalogs, textual information -- especially pricing -- needs to be managed flawlessly. Using XML-based content management software, a company can import catalogs in electronic format from hundreds of suppliers and all the data -- item numbers, product descriptions and units of measure -- will be in a consistent, searchable format.
"You need to be confident that the item you find is the item you're looking for," said Nicole Lane, director of marketing at Atlanta-based CoreHarbor Inc., a managed e-commerce service provider.
Content management software is still in its infancy, with many opportunities still open. Within four to five years, analysts expect the market to consolidate under a few names, Warzecha said.
