Well, it is for Rhia McGrady, one of the Business Analysts at Data Interconnect. In order to raise £2000 for Cancer Research, this year Rhia has decided to run a variety of 5k-13k Obstacle courses and fun runs. To aid fundraising efforts further and not so good for the DI waistline, as a chef in a previous life, Rhia is holding several bake sales.
Rhia has several close friends and family currently fighting a battle with cancer so she wanted to do something to help. Supporting Cancer Research means she can do just that, the charity is constantly researching new treatments towards finding a cure.
Now for most people, these runs are relatively easy. For Rhia, it is a lot more difficult because she has joint hypermobility.
Rhia says “It’s extremely easy for me to get injured just by the running let alone with the obstacles in the way but I wanted that challenge, something that is very difficult for me to achieve. I am determined to reach my goal because this to me represents the battle that Cancer survivors, fighters and angels have gone through themselves. I am more determined than ever!
Data Interconnect fully supports Rhia’s efforts to raise funds for this important charity.

Data Interconnect Ltd is pleased to announce the recent achievement in obtaining the internationally recognised ISO9001 certification.
This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading Certification Body. It clearly demonstrates the development of continual improvement, customer satisfaction and traceability best practices within the organisation. Data Interconnect aims to provide clients with the highest quality order to cash software solutions and service levels.
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do. Having a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement leads to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.
Tom Dodd Noble, Managing Director of Data Interconnect said “This ISO certification means clients can have increased confidence in the services we provide.
“This certification reflects our assurance of quality, our unremitting commitment to our clients and their customers and our position as thought-leaders in the area of order to cash solutions.
“This award was the culmination of a long-term initiative to implement an integrated Quality and Security Management System and thanks to the dedication of our project team, we have achieved this ISO certification.” Tom ends.

“Nothing in the world will stop energy storage” says Ray Noble, ex Arup Group Director and Senior Government advisor for Electric Vehicles with 30 years solar industry expertise. His statements underline the importance of the considerations raised in our article on Sustainable Solar Strategies for Solar PV portfolio management.
Noble was speaking today at the Association for Public Sector Excellence’s (APSE) energy conference. He went on to say that the price of energy storage systems will reduce “faster than solar.”
“The roll-out of electric vehicles to the mass market is only three years away and higher prices for diesel will drive the issue forward.”
“My view is you have to get your thoughts right now. It will happen super quick. You could make money but otherwise you will pay huge penalties for buying very expensive energy in the future.”
He added that central government is also “behind” energy storage.
“If we can jump on the boat now because nobody else is on the boat, we will be a world leader and selling these services to other people. That’s what they [central government] are really after.”
Talk to David North, Head of Energy, about how we can help you to manage your portfolio more effectively to take advantage of these changes.
Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) have an obligation to develop sustainable solar strategies to meet their long-term social aims of providing community homes.
David North, Head of Energy at Data Interconnect reflects on the current state of solar PV portfolio management and exposes opportunities for RSLs to improve cash flow, optimise output and increase returns while reducing employed resources, without selling ‘the family silver’.
Aimed specifically at RSLs but valuable for any Multi-Site Generator, if you are considering a ‘free’ solar contract, upgrading or selling your portfolio or maybe a better way to manage it, read this article first.
New ideas and new technology are explored that help deliver solutions for both financial and social benefits. Future trends are examined with some startling revelations about imminent structural changes.

High tech 12,000 sq ft offices
A new era for Data Interconnect
Major investment in new premises
Data Interconnect are on the move but it’s only a stone’s throw from where we currently operate. Not wanting to move away from the beautiful Oxfordshire/Wiltshire border, our new, high tech 12,000 sq ft office will be on the Shrivenham Hundred Business Park.
Tom Dodd Noble, CEO of Data Interconnect said “Our business is growing rapidly and with the new version of our WebSend Accounts Receivable finance solution now on customer test, we have simply outgrown our current premises so it is time for us to move. Our current location on the edge of Faringdon and surrounding area suits our company culture so the idea of moving far away is simply not an option for us.
“To support the WebSend 4 launch the senior management team has recently expanded, a further four new members have joined the team in the last six months and I anticipate further team development in the coming months.” Tom ends.
After a huge clearing effort, walls have been knocked down, the roof has been raised and ceilings have been removed to create light and airy spaces, and it is taking shape.
The building will include a gym which is intended to be accessible to all employees on the Shrivenham Hundred Business Park and a high-tech mail fulfilment room.
We move on the 18th November.
