Waldorf Books is excited to announce it will be offering a new print-on-demand publishing service. The company has created a database of all the major and minor book titles in the world and developed a program that can access electronic versions of these books. If a customer is unable to find a book in paperback or hardcover in the store, he can go to the Print-On-Demand kiosk and with the push of a button print a copy of the book without ever leaving the store! This new technology has a couple of advantages: customers can choose from a more extensive selection of books, and the final product is cheaper. The service is especially useful for individuals who are most interested in less popular titles by relatively unknown authors. The print-on-demand service will be available at all Waldorf Books stores starting this September.

Cleaning a Laptop Computer

Clean your laptop computer efficiently and safely. Before anything else, make sure to unplug all the cords and remove the battery from your laptop. You will need a soft cloth, a can of compressed air, and a bottle of Leaders Cleaner.

Let’s start with the surface. Put a drop or two of Leaders Cleaner on the cloth and wipe all the sides of your laptop. —[1]—. Using a mixture of water and regular soap is fine, but Leaders Cleaner is a better choice as it evaporates almost immediately, eliminating the danger of liquid getting into your laptop. —[2]—.

Next up is the keyboard. Removing the keys and putting them in a bowl filled with water to clean them is an option. —[3]—. However, simply using a can of compressed air to remove the debris underneath the keys will do the job just fine. Cleaning the monitor should be the last step, so you can prevent the screen from getting dirty with the dust you create while cleaning other parts. —[4]—.

Click here to order Leaders Cleaner. A brief video of our expert performing the laptop cleaning is available here. Talk with technical experts and other registered members of Leaders Today about tech-related issues here.

Pat Fiorentino 3:10 I am guessing most of you read the article in yesterday's newspaper about the city's growing trash problem. Mayor Watkins wants the city to address the issue right away, and he wants us to put together a list of recommendations to present at the next council meeting. Are there any initial thoughts?
Vickie Hill 3:11 I think a media campaign would be helpful. We can focus on the concepts of reducing, reusing, and recycling.
Lloyd Medrano 3:12 Sounds great. I couldn't agree more. But I also think we need to provide more containers to dispose of trash, especially in public areas and parks. The sanitation department has complained about a shortage.
Marcella Sanders 3:13 They also say they're understaffed. We could hire more employees, but the difficult part is figuring out how to pay for everything.
Dennis Kang 3:15 As long as you can come up with a solid plan of action, I can figure out how to supply the funding.
Pat Fiorentino 3:15 Thanks, Dennis. That will be a great help. OK, so I'd like us to meet tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 P.M. in conference room 3. We will have a brainstorming session, so write out your ideas and recommendations. Will that be a problem for anyone?
Lloyd Medrano 3:16 That works for me. I have a meeting at 4 P.M., though. Will we be done by then?
Dennis Kang 3:16 I'll be free. Maybe we should get the head of the sanitation department to come as well.
Marcella Sanders 3:17 I have the day off tomorrow, but I'll send some ideas to you by e-mail before I leave today.
Pat Fiorentino 3:17 We should be, Lloyd. Yes, Dennis, that's an excellent suggestion, so I'll give Edith Holmes a call right now. Thanks, Marcella.

Mr. Daniel Gorman, Office Manager
TSC Investments
76 Washington Rd.
Philadelphia, PA

Dear Mr. Gorman,

This letter is to advise you that, for a limited period of time, Budget Office Supplies (BOS) is reducing prices on certain items in our catalog. Take a moment to review the enclosed catalog. I have circled in red ink the items that are temporarily reduced. You should really take advantage of these prices.

If you wish to order large quantities or make special shipping arrangements, please give me a call and we will try to work out mutually acceptable terms and conditions. Did you now that Budge Office Supplies also offers an express delivery service, which means that you can order an item from the catalogue and receive it in less than two days? This service is free for all orders of $200 or more. Plus, you can feel safe placing an order with our company: we have never received a customer complaint.

In any event, get your order in now, as these prices are only in effect until June 23. I hope you can benefit from these discounts.

Sincerely,
Scott Tuttle
Sales Director

Attn: All BOS employees

On June 15 we received a negative letter form one of our most valued customers, GMS Printers. The company ordered two new SP Laser jet printers from our catalogue on May 29 and requested the free express delivery service. Unfortunately, the printers did not arrive until June 6. Due to the shipping delay, the company lost a deal with a key client because it was unable to produce a report on time. As you can imagine, GMS Printers is not very happy with our service. It has returned the printers and asked for a full refund. The managers have investigated the shipping delay and discovered that an employee failed to enter the order into our database correctly. To prevent this problem from happening in the future, the managers have decided to implement a system of double-checking order. Starting immediately all orders must be entered into the database and then confirmed by a supervisor before they are sent. Let's make sure our work is as efficient and reliable as it can be.

61. What is included with the letter?
62. How could someone arrange for special order to be shipped?

Dear Mr. Benson,

I have written to you several times over the past two months requesting an explanation on why you have failed to bring your account with us up-to-date.

By ignoring these requests, you are damaging the excellent credit record you had previously maintained with our company. In addition, every month that you fail to pay your account, you receive a $25 late payment fee. As of the date of this letter, your account balance is $235.04.

Unless I hear from you within ten days, I will have no other choice but to turn your account over to a debt collection agency. I am sorry that we must take such drastic action but I am afraid you leave us no choice. You can preserve your credit rating by sending us a check for the amount stated above.

Dear Mr. Benson

Thank you for your letter. You deserve an explanation for what went wrong in our accounting department, and I hope that this letter will help resolve our recent error. It has taken a lot of time to find out what happened, so please accept our apologies for the delay in this response.

A thorough look at our records revealed that we did receive your April payment on time, as you stated in your letter of June 25. However, it was credited to an account which bears a similar name to yours. Therefore, we began sending you our standard notices requesting payment, in keeping with our routine policy.

I am sorry for all the distress we have caused you. You have been a valued customer of ours for a long time and we appreciate your understanding. To express our sincerest apologies, we would like to send you a $175 gift certificate to The Wilson Spa and Massage Center.
