Million for a million

Website heavyweight Zeald gets behind a weighty cause.

Million for a Million Annah Stretton Charity blog with Zeald Being overweight often has a big impact on your general well-being and heart health. With one New Zealander dying from coronary heart disease every 90 minutes, and with the obesity epidemic hitting all ages of society, it is important to create awareness around the need to take a positive step in the right direction and encourage people to lose a kilo.

The "Million for a Million" campaign aims to shed one million kilograms off the total weight of our nation. Zeald was approached by fashion designer and entrepreneur Annah Stretton, who is heading the campaign, to lend a hand to lighten the nation and promote a healthy lifestyle. The inspiration for the charitable project surfaced after Annah's recent Dry July 30-day hiatus from alcohol - a stellar effort that saw her contribute to the $500,000 raised for Northern Regional Cancer and Blood Service at Auckland City Hospital.

Heart Foundation Medical Director, Norman Sharpe commends Annah on her enthusiasm to get right to the heart of the nation’s increasing ill-health and galvanise New Zealanders into action.

“Despite medical advances, heart disease continues to be the single biggest killer of our men and women because of complex changes in the way New Zealanders live, work, eat and exercise,” says Professor Sharpe. “The journey towards heart health is about making small but achievable lifestyle changes – something that I’m certain this campaign can help inspire. We’re a charity and need public support more than ever. We’re very grateful for Annah for leading this initiative and being such a positive champion for change.”

Zeald designed and developed the Million for a Million website to include social media integration where participants share their stories of their health journey. These stories appear in the ‘Winners Gallery’ to encourage others to make a difference to their own health and the health of the nation.

Million for a Million is supported by Zeald, Annah Stretton, Westpac, Mediaworks, Pak N’ Save, New World, The Warehouse and the Heart Foundation who are excited to be encouraging New Zealanders and their own staff to think about their health and lose a kilo for the cause.

If you would like to join in the fight against fat, simply register and donate a dollar here. All proceeds will go towards the New Zealand Heart Foundation.

Integration is Easy with Zeald

Get your website talking to your software.Learn about Integrate Third Party Business Software with Zeald

Is your website having problems integrating with your accounting software? Are you always manually keeping track of sales from auction websites? There is a better way.

Here at Zeald we think that doing business online should make things easier, but if your website isn't communicating with your sales, marketing and accounting software then things may seem a lot harder than they should be.

Zeald websites have always been able to connect to most third-party business applications, but it was a time consuming process that was a little complicated and a therefore a little on the expensive side. But now integration is much simpler through your Zeald website, making it easier for you to manage your business.

How do we do it? Through our integration partners Zeald websites can seamlessly integrate with the most popular platforms from CRM, eCommerce, Invoicing, Email Marketing, Event Management, Project and Team Management and Accounting simplifying and optimising business processes.

This means that all your integrations, data migrations, synchronisations and data de-duplication between different software platforms are taken care of by one of our integration partners through your Zeald website.

For example, if you use accounting software, such as Xero or MYOB, a Zeald website can integrate seamlessly with the software to manage all aspects of your business from your Zeald eCommerce website transactions to auction websites like eBay and TradeMe to CRM systems like HighRise or BatchBook and many more.

Some of the information that will integrate with your accounting software:

  • Contacts - Full contact management including merging and synchronisation is supported.
  • Invoices (Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payables) - Can be created automatically from eCommerce orders, CRM deals or invoicing systems.
  • Invoice Payments - Can be automatically mapped to different bank/clearing accounts.
  • Tax Rates - All the tax rates are imported from your accounting software to allow easy application of taxes on incoming invoices.
  • Chart of Accounts - Are retrieved and can be used for generating invoices and map line items to the correct accounts.
  • Bank Accounts - Are used to match cleared payments for simplified bank reconciliation.
  • Inventory Items - Are retrieved and can be used to map and generate sales by matching them to your sold products on eCommerce platforms. New inventory items can also be created on the fly if new products are detected in other systems.

Save yourself time and money by integrating your Zeald website with your software. The applications we can connect to are updated all the time. Give Zeald a call on 0508 932 530 to see how we can help you integrate with your third-party software.
