Travelshop ads breaking news

The company needed to "get itself in order" and "rethink its position a little better", he admitted. The company's financial status upon Robertson's appointment as CEO four weeks ago was "not very good".

Robertson said the first step in the company's strategy overhaul would be to terminate a three-month advertising contract with News Ltd.

That arrangement had seen Travelshop presented as a traditional agency rather than a web-enabled travel agency, he said, due to Travelshop's previous management. "I don't blame News Ltd at all," he said.

Travelshop has seven retail outlets in Western Australia, with expanding points of presence in Sydney and Melbourne. The company recently announced it would acquire Melbourne offline travel agency Croydon Travel. That acquisition, Robertson said, would see annual revenues pushed up towards $55 million next financial year.

Robertson said the termination of the deal with News was not due to any widespread cost-cutting strategy. On the contrary, he said his company would further develop its advertising arrangements with local Ninemsn travel arm Getaway, which he said was "working better".

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
