Analysts tracking small and midsize businesses that use the Microsoft Azure Cloud have concluded that they gained revenue an average of 10 percentage points faster than non-users. That’s not only quite a statistic, that’s quite a testament to the utility of the Microsoft Cloud in driving business and profitability today.

It’s no secret that technology is crucial to competitiveness, opportunities and growth. But historically, its been costly and complex for small and midsize businesses to fully leverage the benefits. Not true with Azure.

Now, small and midsize businesses like yours can finally leverage the Cloud to maximize IT value and capture opportunity, with low overhead and low complexity. That’s why I’m reaching out. We’re called Menlo Technologies and what we do is sell and service the Microsoft Cloud.

I’m hoping I can entice you to take a quick look. What you’ll see in part is an entire suite of Azure Cloud solutions tailored to all the needs of small and midsize businesses - everything from office productivity tools, to CRM and accounting solutions, to security, storage and disaster recovery options.

In fact, Menlo is currently offering a no-cost, three week analysis of all your existing applications, with focus to any areas of consolidation and TCO savings in moving to the Azure Cloud, or leveraging the applications there. Following this analysis, Menlo will propose how to cost-effectively move you in part, or in whole to Azure, with fully documented ROI.

Elena, if you’ve been thinking about the Cloud, but you’re not sure where to turn, let’s talk about how we might help get you there, as well as manage any move to full ROI. Let me know when you’re free for a quick call and I’ll get something on your calendar. Thanks and talk soon.

Dear Erin,

Thank you for your interest in working with us.

Chengmachinery Co.,Ltd, is in need of a reliable company or Individual in
United States of America ,Canada , europe, Some countries in Africa to act
in the capacity of an account receivable agent owing to the challenges we
encountered in recent times. Your skills and experience we believe will be
very valuable to us by assisting cheng machinery investment Co.,Ltd to
communicate and retrieve due payments from our customers located in the
above region.

We have customers who have not met with the normal payment schedule of 30
days after confirming the delivery of products that we sent to them.

Also, we are experiencing difficulties processing check payments from our
customers due to the new banking regulations in Asia, one of which demands
that check payments from overseas be held for 21-28 working days before
funds can be made available. These problems have limited the growth and the
expansion of our business.

Based on our research towards proffering solution to these problems, we
have discovered that having an account receivable agent in the same region
with our customers will not only make it much easier for customers to
comply with the payment schedule of 30 days after receipt of goods, but
also reduce the time for availability of funds as in the case of check
payments as well as direct bank wire transfers.

Thus, we desire to contract you to bridge the gap by communicating with our
customers via email and telephone means prior to collecting payment due to
Cheng machinery investment Co.,Ltd. for products supplied.

Furthermore, as compensation for your services, we confirm in good faith
that we are ready to work with you with a basic annual salary of 45*,000.00
Dollars* and you shall also earn 7*% commission* on every payment retrieved
on behalf of Chengmachinery investment Co.,Ltd.

Thank your for your anticipated response.
