If you want to pay your bills online and use e.g. the possibilities of BROU onlinebanking (Banco de la República Oriental del Uruguay) you will somtimes reach the limits of what is possible. Not all companies are available in the Multipagos department of BROU online banking. Such as Asociación Española or Porto Seguro insurance. To change that, a relatively young team in 2012 has founded the company "Paganza".
If you have an account at one of the 6 biggest availble banks in Uruguay you can use Paganza. At the moment these banks are available:
Itaú, Discount Bank, BBVA, BROU, Scotiabank and HSBC.
You can pay your bills on the website or with an App, available for Android, Iphone and Windows mobile for more than 650 services and companies. If you miss one company on the list, you can send a request to Paganza and ask them to add the missing company to the list.
For many of us the pets became family members and perhaps there are situations you want to surveil your beloved animal, when you have to leave the house or you can't always be in the same room. Or your sweetie is sick and you want to observe it's situation, without being around all the time. We recently had such a situation and installed a WLan camera for this purpose. This makes it possible to surveil the animal all the time.
A team of developers from the Imperial College London and ETH Zurich created an online calculator to be able to calculate the estimated output of solar and wind energy. There is a global data base available and more detailed for the European region. The tool can be used worldwide for free and it is a great opportunity for all planners of solar and wind power plants.
You have a small business and you cannot afford pricy advertising?
With a Facebook business fanpage and the appropriate advertising you can reach more than 200,000 people in Uruguay within 2-3 weeks. And that's for just 5000 Pesos! Usually that's not possible with conventional advertising and not as simple and affordable. You pay only those, who respond to your advertising, in this example the cost per person was about 3.20 pesos. And you can also be sure that the person has responded in any way to your advertising, such as with a "Like" of your page!
For us "expats" Skype often is the cheapest and sometimes the only way to keep in contact with family and friends in our home countries. The majority of the Skype users are using a PC, notebook or tablet. But the most of this devices always must be turned on and online. This energy consumption could be reduced with a Skype phone and would have the opportunity to be able to move freely during the telephone conversation.
