Talkonaut VOIP on mobile

Last year, I wrote about use of Instant Messaging at the workplace and VOIP phones as to how they bring down the costs of communication. The popularity of the technology is more to do with comfort than anything else.

I have stopped fancying expensive mobile phones rather I look for how best I can use for communication and information while I am mobile. Yesterday, I was searching for an application which should marry VOIP and IM on my mobile, I found it Talkonaut™.

Talkonaut™ is mobile free calling, VoIP enabled, Google Talk™ like application for your mobile phone. Talkonaut is available for three different mobile platforms: Symbian S60, Windows Mobile 5/6 and J2ME with MIDP-2.0. Talkonaut works on more than 300 different mobile handsets.

Talkonaut™ supports Jabber, Google Talk, ICQ, MSN, AIM and Yahoo networks both for chatting and voice calling.

The outstanding feature of Talkonaut is VoIP over GPRS capability which allows you to make free long distance and overseas calls utilizing your data connection such as GPRS, EDGE, 3G or WIFI.

Pretty cool application, very easy to use and three minutes to install and configure. Make sure you have a unlimited internet connection on your mobile phone since you will communicating over internet.

I managed to call on google talk and results are pretty good. Download it on your mobile by visiting .

You should also upgrade the mobile application for skype since now it allows you to call on a telephone number. Communication costs are coming down and you can call anywhere in the world.

The other application someone suggested is which is similar to Talkonaut™.

I did a test on my phone and application looks very fancy as compared to Talkonaut. It has skype link also which is an advantage. One drawback I found was if someone calls you then it is more likely to go to your voicemail in first two attempts. Then the caller get connected to you.

The web widget is a bit of a fancy. It works well ie. you will get messages on your phone. But who wants to be bothered all the time by visitors on the internet.

Poll : Does CIMA, UK qualification add value

Poll : Does pursuing CIMA, UK qualification add value to a member of ICWAI, India ? Vote on the poll and share your thoughts by commenting the blog. Poll: Vote here I feel that if you are a member of ICWAI and you pursue CIMA, UK qualification, you are not adding any value to your skills since you will be learning the same. Once you are qualified, you are still a Cost & Management Accountant but from UK. For an employer, I would still have same skills and training on Management Accounting. However if you pursue qualification like Company Secretary or CPA or ACCA , your skills are enhanced with the knowledge gained during training and passing of exams. After qualification, you are bound to follow the CPD programs of ICWAI and other institute. In competitive world, employer look for people with multiple skills. Which one promotes you as professional better against your name: AICWA, ACMA or AICWA, ACS or AICWA, CPA or AICWA, ACCA Widgets Regards, Santosh

Learning Curve Theory

Learning Curve Theory is concerned with the idea that when a new job, process or activity commences for the first time it is likely that the workforce involved will not achieve maximum efficiency immediately. Repetition of the task is likely to make the people more confident and knowledgeable and will eventually result in a more efficient and rapid operation. Eventually the learning process will stop after continually repeating the job. As a consequence the time to complete a task will initially decline and then stabilise once efficient working is achieved. The cumulative average time per unit is assumed to decrease by a constant percentage every time that output doubles. Cumulative average time refers to the average time per unit for all units produced so far, from and including the first one made. Major areas within management accounting where learning curve theory is likely to have consequences and suggest potential limitations of this theory. Areas of consequence: A Standard

Resistence to Change - Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger

The Six (6) Change Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger is a model to prevent, decrease or minimize resistance to change in organizations. According to Kotter and Schlesinger (1979), there are four reasons that certain people are resisting change : Parochial self-interest (some people are concerned with the implication of the change for themselves ad how it may effect their own interests, rather than considering the effects for the success of the business) Misunderstanding (communication problems; inadequate information) Low tolerance to change (certain people are very keen on security and stability in their work) Different assessments of the situation (some employees may disagree on the reasons for the change and on the advantages and disadvantages of the change process) Kotter and Schlesinger set out the following six (6) change approaches to deal with this resistance to cha
