Rebrands Asia Pacific Operations to Fujifilm from April 2021

TOKYO, November 5, 2020 – Fuji Xerox announces that its Asia Pacific operations will change to the Fujifilm brand with the changing of Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. corporate name to FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corp. on April 2021. This change is brought forth based on the company’s decision to end the Technology Agreement with Xerox Corporation on the agreement’s expiration date, March 31, 2021. The Technology Agreement provides for technology/brand licenses and sales territories applicable to each company.

Fuji Xerox and Xerox Corporation have a history of benefiting from the shared use of technologies each company independently developed. Fuji Xerox has thrived in the speed and level of product development and have been establishing its own technologies for many years. As such, Fuji Xerox is well positioned to continue developing and manufacturing its original products using its own, unique technologies after the expiration of the Technology Agreement with Xerox Corporation.

Fuji Xerox will also provide services and maintenances including managed print services to customers in full performance of current agreements with them, without regard to the expiration of the Technology Agreement with Xerox Corporation.

With affluent know-how accumulated to date and trust earned from customers, Fuji Xerox aims to foster innovation with the other companies in the Fujifilm Group by accelerating the market introduction of solutions and services that build on technologies related to the cloud, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things. Additionally, Fuji Xerox will work swiftly to strengthen its document and adjacent businesses as well as to expand into new business areas, and to bring about business innovations by supporting the use and sharing of knowledge that will enable office workers to further increase their productivity and efficiency.

Likewise, on April 1, 2021, the sales departments in Japan and all 31 domestic sales subsidiaries plus Fuji Xerox InterField will integrate as one to establish a new company, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Japan Corp.

The new corporate name represents Fuji Xerox’s commitment as part of the Fujifilm Group―which promotes “Value from Innovation” as its corporate slogan―to expand into a wide range of business areas going forward and to always continue delivering business innovations.

In this generation of click, swipe, stream and downloads, it’s high time to find an alternative form of entertainment that will rival the influx of digital tech, a form of leisure that will convince you to rise from your seat and physically be active again. Why not try the “Escape Room” experience?

What is an Escape Room? An Escape Room (or Escape Game), is a mental, physical and interactive game concept where players are placed inside a room with a particular situation or theme. The players should be able to get out of the room by finding clues, hints and riddles, solve puzzles, open locks and the like.

One such Escape Room is I-Detective Sleuth Games, the “in place” to bring your detective aspirations to life. Highly recommended as a bonding venue for families and friends, as a teambuilding activity for companies and even as a party concept. Come and visit this modern day indoor playground to de-stress and stimulate your mind and body. 

I-Detective has already been recognized by 2 business award giving entities. First by the Elite Business and Leadership Awards, as one of 2019’s Elite Business Excellence awardees, as the “Premier Escape Game Room” and the other coming from the World Class Philippines Council, as the “Innovative Escape Game Room.” The Netizen’s Best Choice Awards Council, this time an online media award giving body, has also awarded I-Detective as this year’s “Best Choice Escape Game Room.”

Currently, I-Detective has five exciting themed rooms: The Mysterious Castle, The Creepy Carnival, The Abandoned School, The Hidden Museum and The Cabin In The Woods. All of these Escape Room themes are original. Months of research and careful construction of all

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the Escape Game Room industry.

Discover clues, decipher puzzles and decode locks with your family, friends, work colleagues and schoolmates, this time in the safe comforts of your home.

Mental health awareness is about bringing the public’s attention to the realities around mental health and letting everyone know that mental health affects everyone. Mental illness awareness is also typically highlighted by many organizations when focusing on mental health awareness.

How to protect your mental health in a pandemic

Take A Break From The New Cycle

Obviously we rely on the news to let us know whether things have changed where we live, if quarantines have been put in place and if changes to the law in response to corona virus will affect our day to day lives.

What we don’t need to do, though, is it refreshing Twitter all day, seeking out more bad news to scare ourselves with.

Protect The People You Love By Protecting Yourself First

Recent coverage of coronavirus has focused on the assumption that young, healthy people will remain relatively unaffected. For those with underlying issues or those caring for elderly or sick loved ones, this assumption, while undoubtedly meant to be comforting, can feel dismissive and upsetting.

It’s important to remember the distinction between things which are out of your control and the productive ways you can actually help by remaining calm, positive and sensible.

Don’t (Panic) Buy into the Sensationalism

The Psychology behind buying all the hand sanitizer, soap, masks and gloves available to you is a flawed one to remain healthy as a society we need to make sure there is enough of these supplies to go around.

Put simply — if you’re washing your hands, but other people aren’t, then you’re still at risk. Putting your fate in other people’s hands in this way can be daunting, but it’s necessary to remain calm and not bunker down into a “me me me” mentality.

Stay Safe Out There!

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Updates & Advice For The Public

0

MANILA, July 19 : The number of Covid-19 (coronavirus) cases in the Philippines surged to 67,456 after the Department of Health (DOH) reported 2,241 new cases on Sunday.

The DOH said that the number of recoveries further rose to 22,465 after 398 more patients have survived the disease.

The death toll increased to 1,831 after 58 more patients have succumbed to the viral disease, the DOH added.

The Philippines also recorded 162 Covid-19 deaths a week ago, the highest daily rise in South-East Asia so far.

The Philippines’ government is enforcing partial coronavirus restrictions in the capital Manila for another two weeks.

They are also set to reinstate stricter curbs if a rise in new cases and deaths does not slow down.

The daily rate of cases and death toll in the country has also been putting hospitals under strain. 

Advice For The Public

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face. 

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.

Protect yourself and others from the spread COVID-19

You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
  • Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and others. Why? When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person has the disease.
  • Avoid going to crowded places. Why? Where people come together in crowds, you are more likely to come into close contact with someone that has COVID-19 and it is more difficult to maintain physical distance of 1 metre (3 feet).
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and infect you.
  • Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands. Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
  • Stay home and self-isolate even with minor symptoms such as cough, headache, mild fever, until you recover. Have someone bring you supplies. If you need to leave your house, wear a mask to avoid infecting others. Why? Avoiding contact with others will protect them from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, but call by telephone in advance if possible and follow the directions of your local health authority. Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
  • Keep up to date on the latest information from trusted sources, such as WHO or your local and national health authorities. Why? Local and national authorities are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

Safe use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers

To protect yourself and others against COVID-19, clean your hands frequently and thoroughly. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash your hands with soap and water. If you use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, make sure you use and store it carefully.

  • Keep alcohol-based hand sanitizers out of children’s reach. Teach them how to apply the sanitizer and monitor its use.
  • Apply a coin-sized amount on your hands. There is no need to use a large amount of the product.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose immediately after using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, as it can cause irritation.
  • Hand sanitizers recommended to protect against COVID-19 are alcohol-based and therefore can be flammable. Do not use before handling fire or cooking.
  • Under no circumstance, drink or let children swallow an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. It can be poisonous. 
  • Remember that washing your hands with soap and water is also effective against COVID-19.
HEALTHY AT HOME:

Staying Physically Active

The COVID-19 pandemic means that many of us are staying at home  and sitting down more than we usually do. It’s hard for a lot of us to do the sort of exercise we normally do. It’s even harder for people who don’t usually do a lot of physical exercise. Regular physical activity benefits both the body and mind. It can reduce high blood pressure, help manage weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers – all conditions that can increase susceptibility to COVID-19

Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet is very important during the COVID-19 pandemic. What we eat and drink can affect our body’s ability to prevent, fight and recover from infections. While no foods or dietary supplements can prevent or cure COVID-19 infection, healthy diets are important for supporting immune systems. Good nutrition can also reduce the likelihood of developing other health problems, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer.

Healthy Parenting

Working with our partners, WHO will bring you content to help open the world of isolation. Watch out for resources and ideas to support parents and projects that will engage children in understanding the coronavirus, the challenges it brings to their world and what can be done to protect them. We will also introduce children to creative content that will entertain and provide a much-needed escape into the fun and magical worlds of imagination.

Looking after our mental health

The new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, home-schooling of children, and lack of physical contact with other family members, friends and colleagues take time to get used to. Adapting to lifestyle changes such as these, and managing the fear of contracting the virus and worry about people close to us who are particularly vulnerable, are challenging for all of us. They can be particularly difficult for people with mental health conditions. Fortunately, there are lots of things that we can do to look after our own mental health and to help others who may need some extra support and care.

Appointments in the New Normal: Why Safety Protocols are Important

0

MANILA, Philippines – With governments around the world lifting quarantine restrictions, people everywhere are beginning to adjust to a world that has been significantly affected by COVID-19. As researchers continue to develop life-saving solutions to a global pandemic, civilians and businesses are looking at new alternatives that can safely fulfill consumer needs while stimulating the Philippine economy.

“Unfortunately, this COVID-19 health crisis will extend itself into a slowdown in the economy. Output, jobs, and incomes will be adversely affected,” says Anna Moncupa, founder of Keepr Storage PH.  “Negative growth typically happens during an economic downturn and this will cause consumers to curtail their expenses to conserve cash. Income is affected. Non-essential goods will not be bought and some may have difficulty paying bills. Consumers are adjusting to save money. We’re already seeing tenants leaving prime commercial spaces to keep their businesses afloat, even in the midst of the community quarantine.”

Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the Philippine Economy

The Philippines has seen tremendous growth in recent years, with many analysts regarding the country as having the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia. However, due to the effects of the coronavirus, economists are projecting a significant decline in our gross domestic product (GDP) at the end of 2020. This has led many experts to look at locally-owned businesses as a means of stabilizing the economy in the years to come. 

No Contact: How Local Businesses Can Stimulate Economic Growth in the New Normal

Since the start of Enhanced Community Quarantine, Filipinos within Metro Manila have complied with the rules established by the government. This has compelled numerous businesses to adapt to government mandate and consumer behavior through a no-contact policy that allows staff and essential personnel to safely interact with consumers. 

“We as consumers value our health more than anything during these times,” says Moncupa. “Having certain protocols in place has helped our business meet our customers’ demands and needs, without having to sacrifice our commitment to our clients. We are still able to deliver the same exceptional service. Already, we are seeing more and more businesses pivot to distance-enabled transactions, and we expect this to continue for quite a while, or at least until we have beaten the virus. I do hope that other businesses make it sustainable for both their employees and customers.”

Moncupa’s team at Keepr Storage PH regularly practices no-contact transactions through the implementation of basic guidelines:
  • Placement of delivery items in a dedicated space accessible to Storage Specialists to ensure proper social distancing.
  • The use of in-house bins that are custom designed to store and transport your possessions.
  • The use of facemasks and PPEs during pick-ups between customers and personnel.
  • The acquisition of the necessary permits from your local homeowner’s association or the building management. 
  •  Photographic documentation of your items before pick-up.

“Our current policies are not only centered on safety, it was structured with limited resources in mind,” adds Anna Moncupa. “With limited public transportation, Metro Manila has minimal workforce available at the moment. Having these contactless procedures when offering moving and storage gives our customers cost-efficient alternatives without them having to look for more manpower. They are able to move their items and solve space issues without having to be physically present during the quarantine period. Our system allows our customers to do everything they need to do, all via mobile app or web.”

. Public Utility Buses (PUBs), Modern PUVs, and UV Express will already be allowed to operate, also with limited passenger capacity, along with the initial set of transport modes that were allowed to operate during Phase 1. 

The 1-meter social distance rule between persons will be strictly enforced inside ALL the PUVs and mass transport units, in adherence to health protocols. Just to ensure and monitor the limited capacity and passenger load of all the public transport vehicles.

The Use of Technology

The Modernization Initiatives will be implemented including an automatic fare collection system (AFCS) for cashless payment transactions, electronic toll collection, and GNSS/GPS. The DOTr will likewise vigorously pursue and promote online transactions in licensing, registration and other documentary requirements. 

This is set to be run in NCR starting on June 1,2020,Developed by Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board that will be adopted is the Public Transport Online Processing System. This system will allow transactions to be made online, except the publication and hearing of cases—which will make LTFRB services faster and accessible for all its stakeholders.

Other institutional changes which the DOTr will implement in the ‘NEW NORMAL’ transition, and they are as follows:

. Routes Rationalization for a more effective traffic management;

. Industry Consolidation, to make it more efficient and financially tenable for stakeholders;

. The use of shuttle services to prevent students and employees from contracting the virus, will also be encouraged;

. Promotion of the use of non-motorized transport or use of bicycles, to maintain physical distancing, provide environmental and health benefits and promote efficient road space use

In a GCQ setting, the DOTr is also set to adopt a system in EDSA where dedicated lanes will be set forth for buses. In addition, the transformation of EDSA will include designated lanes for Bikes, as well as the putting up of Pedestrian Crossing and Bus Boarding Areas in strategic places.
