New Franchiselenders.com website connects Franchise Investors with Banks nationwide

The site will simplify and enhance the banking process.

HAZLET TWP., NJ, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Diamond Financial (New Jersey Office), a nationwide specialty Franchise financing consulting firm with access to many banks and lenders, processing both SBA and non-SBA alternative funding programs, has recently launched a new website www.franchiselenders.com that gives new franchise investors, existing franchise owners and franchisors a connection to the various funding sources who are not only more aggressive lending to the Franchise industry but who have also not tightened up their lending requirements because of what the pandemic has done to the economy and to the small business owner.

“Most banks have either stopped lending on start-ups and expansion loan requests or have made their loan requirements even more conservative” says Don Johnson, owner of FranchiseLenders.com and 20-year veteran of Franchise lending and whose firm works with hundreds of franchise brands. “Most borrowers get declined for financing because their loan package presentation is not correct or complete and is not presented to the right and best bank for that particular type of loan. FranchiseLenders takes care of all those concerns for them”, Johnson says. The new website will also let a borrower learn their loan potential within 24 hours and offers several services to the Franchisor, including letting them know quickly which of their investor/franchisees is pre-qualified and financeable, saving them time and money. With many people losing their jobs and businesses, unfortunately, franchising with its low failure rate is an attractive option, but most have never experienced applying for a business loan or even filled out a personal financial statement or know how to write a business plan.

FranchiseLenders.com provides complete services from start to finish offering a one-step shop approach to maximize loan potential for any type of business loan request. Josh York of Gymguyz, a current Diamond Financial Franchisor client and CEO & Founder nationwide says “Trying to find a consistent bank to finance our expansion was tough even before 2020, now it’s off the charts – it’s a good thing Don and his team at FranchiseLenders.com is there for us. FranchiseLenders.com is essentially, in the constant changing world, an important source for the most recent updated industry information which is critical for borrower success! ENDS

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."


– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.


– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.


– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”


– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.


– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.


In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.


The annual price of a 12-month subscription to the online private aviation buyer’s guide is $250 and comes with personal assistance via its JET CARD DECIDER service. Subscribers can compare providers and programs by 65 variables, including safety standards, company size and history, key policies, inclusions, and amenities, including lead time for bookings and cancelations, surcharges, and discounts. Exclusive QUICK COMPARE FLIGHT PRICING enables subscribers to compare the cost for specific flights between dozens of providers in seconds.

Unlike lead generation websites, Private Jet Card Comparisons does not sell subscriber contact data or accept referral fees from jet companies. The promise is to protect their privacy and offer subscribers continually updated data and unbiased guidance.

London cabbies join rank against Uber

London cabbies are coming together to build a group legal action against Uber.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — London cabbies are coming together to build a group legal action against Uber. Joining forces with litigation specialist RGL Management and law firm Mishcon de Reya, the group is working to commence proceedings by no later than Q1 2022.

The basis of the claim is that Uber operated unlawfully by breaching the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998 from June 2012 until March 2018. Uber permitted drivers to accept bookings directly when they were not licensed to do so.

Uber’s failure to adhere to the relevant statutory framework caused loss of earnings to licensed black cab drivers, who continued to operate lawfully and were subject to strict legislative and regulatory rules and requirements throughout.

An extensive marketing campaign – “Black Cabs vs Uber 2021” (“BULit21”) – funded by RGL, is now underway.

Any licensed green or yellow badge cab driver operating in the London area between June 2012 and March 2018 is eligible to join the group. RGL calculates up to 30,000 drivers are so eligible and that for a full-time driver operating throughout this period, a claim against Uber could be worth in the region of £25,000 or more.

All drivers who believe they may be eligible should visit https://bulit21.com/ for more information and how to register.

Garry White, a cabbie since 1987, has signed up and commented:

“Uber’s blatant abuse of their technology platform, allowing Uber drivers to benefit from effectively being hailed in the street, undermined our drivers’ livelihoods, and caused direct financial harm. It was just not right. With the support of RGL, we are rapidly building a large group of cab drivers so that we can finally take on Uber, bring its unlawful conduct to book and win fair compensation. London cabbies are highly qualified workers. We have to abide by strict regulations to accept fares. Why shouldn’t Uber?”

Brenda Bartlett, a retired cab driver of over 30 years, and former Master of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, said:

”Cabbies saw their average earnings drop significantly because of Uber’s actions and I’m pleased to be part of the BULit21 campaign, which represents the best chance for London cabbies to recover their losses with no financial risk. Working alongside RGL and a leading law firm, the strategy is to have the numbers of drivers and put in place the financial clout to fight toe-to-toe with Uber. I urge all affected drivers to join the group as soon as possible.”
There is no joining fee for cabbies, and as of today, c.4,000 cabbies have signed up and RGL is processing a further c.5,200 registrations.

Dale Forwood, a cab driver for 8 years, said:

“I am telling all my fellow cab drivers to sign up so that we can build this group action and make it successful. I know how many of them feel outraged and let down by what has happened. All of us spent years doing ‘The Knowledge’ to get our licence. Now we are having to do double hours to earn what we used to before Uber were effectively given a licence to unlawfully take our work. It’s soul destroying and completely unfair.”

RGL, which is currently in court on behalf of hundreds of small businesses bringing a claim against Clydesdale and National Australia Bank, is working with law firm Mishcon de Reya to support the BULit21 group.

James Hayward, CEO, RGL Management, said:

“We’re working to bringing an action against Uber that will be by cabbies for cabbies. As well as building the book of claimant cab drivers, the structure to be put in place will be such that there is no cost until success is achieved and no risk. With RGL’s and the lawyers’ combined experience, we will ensure the BULit21 group is fully supported. Uber knowingly and unlawfully allowed its drivers to accept bookings direct via the app when they were not licensed to do so. It is very clear.”

Tesla’s investors should be worried about it losing ground in the Europe

Tesla’s investors should be worried about it losing ground in the Europe

Tesla’s investors should be worried about it losing ground in the Europe”


WARSAW, POLAND, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to recent statistics, Tesla’s Model 3 has been ceding ground in the Europe region. Today, the European market is the largest EV market worldwide following rapid growth in 2020, accompanied by the decrease in China. New electric car registration in Europe is two times that of China as well as five times in the USA. On Wednesday, Peter Garnry, Saxo Bank Head of Equity Strategy said that Tesla’s outpacing by Hyundai, Volkswagen, and Renault in the recent few months should have alerted shareholders. Garnry said that in the near future, Tesla is going to the largest and successful carmaker across the world, though the competition is becoming stiffer.

In the first 2021’s two weeks, Tesla’s stock has increased by over 21%, while in 2020; it soared by over 700%. Garnry said that in November, the European vehicle registration statistics showed that plug-ins, which combines both hybrid vehicles and pure electric, increased by 198% yearly. In the entire continent, the total car registrations fall by 14%. Today in Europe, plug-in vehicles take 10 percent of total market share, while pure Electric Vehicles accounting for about 5.4%. Garnry said that customers had agreed that Tesla’s sales had increased in the last month of the quarter and added that the sales dropped in the months of October as well as November.

In the recent EV ranking, the Renault Zoe was leading, and VW ID.3 was the second, while Hyundai’s Kona was third, followed by Tesla’s Model 3. This is according to a report released by sales figures from the EV industry database for plug-in vehicles volumes. Garnry said that this report should scare Tesla’s shareholders bearing in mind Model S and X did not appear in the top 20 rankings despite models like the Audi e-Tron being listed. When CNBC contacted Tesla to comment on this issue, Tesla did not give an immediate response.

Luca de Meo, the new CEO of Renault, said on Thursday that the company is moving to a more electric line-up and creating a battery plant with one of the suppliers in France. On Thursday, Wedbush Securities, the US investment firm, increased its price target from $715 to $950 per share with an optimistic plan of $1250. Wedbush said there was a rise in demand for Electric Vehicles and Model 3. They predicted that over 40% of total sales of Tesla would come from China by 2022, while Democrats would control all the three US government branches are expected to offer a greater strength for Electric Vehicles, considering the climate policy of President-elect Joe Biden.

Golf Cart and Buggy Market – Geography

Europe is the most lucrative region for golf cart with the largest number of golf courses and growing tourist destination across the region. The market in Europe is expected to maintain steady growth during the forecast period. The recent trade tensions between the EU and the US, and the already existing fear of Brexit, certainly creates anticipations among vendors. However, signs of positivity are reflected across countries such as Sweden, France, and Germany, which is expected to draw the attention of several vendors. Sweden had more than 400 golf courses as of 2018 along with more than 470 facilities, thereby providing significant growth opportunities for the game to grow in the country. One of the key factors that have consistently driven golf in the country is growing in the number of golfers since 2014. It has been one of the leading countries in terms of growth in the number of registered golfers over the last five years.

New release of eccenca Corporate Memory increases transparency and automation in data management

Our aim was to build a solution that provides enterprises with company-wide identification of and access to their data, explicit data semantics for automation, empowerment of its LOBs to work agile.”

— René Pietzsch, Head of Product Management

LEIPZIG, GERMANY, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — eccenca releases version 20.12 of its flagship knowledge graph software eccenca Corporate Memory. The latest releases consolidates the mission to make semantic data management technologies enterprise-ready and usable for business users. As leading tech analysts at Gartner highlighted in a 2020 report, knowledge graph technology is increasingly powering artificial intelligence applications.

But even though the technology is the foundation for a data-centric IT and data architecture that facilitates the potentials of digital transformation and automation, it has long been considered to academic for business use. eccenca has changed this with its releases in 2020. By focussing on user experience and performance eccenca Corporate Memory provides a wide array of access and integration points, a ready-to-use query catalogue, tools for data automation as well as the means for a detailed and transparent data governance.

"Before enterprises can realize the full potential of their data, it's paramount that they establish a framework that provides a shared understanding of their data as well as access to it", eccenca Head of Product Management René Pietzsch explains the main challenge of digital transformation. "For the last year, we have been aligning our software with the business needs of companies that tackle digital transformation. Our aim was to build a solution that provides enterprises with three main abilities: company-wide identification of and access to their data, explicit data semantics for automation, empowerment of its lines of business to work agile. The new eccenca Corporate Memory is the foundation to achieve that by providing a one-stop-shop for building, exploring, consuming and governing enterprise data."

In past releases eccenca had already introduced several enterprise-ready functionalities including interactive graph visualization, automation tools for data migration as well as data normalization, REST-API connections to query data directly from 3rd party applications as well as several mechanisms for data protection and access management.

eccenca Corporate Memory 20.12 adds further benefits for enterprise users:
Simplified building process: The DataIntegration workbench unifies all relevant views. Building a knowledge graph was never more smooth and streamlined.
Powerful, easy-to-use reporting: Integrated connectors allow the creation of dashboards and data visualizations directly in Microsoft Power BI and Redash.
Business-user friendly data exploration: The catalogue of declarative data queries allows business users to easily access and explore data without the need to code.
Workflow automation: The updated cmemc command line tool further simplifies the execution of workflows like dataset creation, update and deletion as well as updating vocabularies.
Ready for internationalization: Localization of the user interface and metadata with i18n language integration.
Enhanced data transparency and understanding: Statement annotation allows definition and documentation of additional metadata to further a shared understanding of enterprise data across departmental boundaries.

The update of the tried-and-tested knowledge graph platform is a direct result of close communication with current clients from various industries including manufacturing, financial services and telecommunication.
