Although many struggling industries are continually fighting a wavering economy, some dying industries are faring better than expected.
Making It Work

Offering a chance to regroup and reemerge, Chapter 11 has given many a second chance at a booming financial future. While the advancement of technology has been the culprit for some industries, sending them into the red; others are learning to adapt to make it boost business instead.
Recent technological innovations these days are focused on one thing: streamlining operations. Between online banking and payment services, communication and collaboration tools that make face-to-face conferencing a thing of the past, to facilitating product delivery via the internet; technology is harnessing the power off efficiency.
Innovations like “the cloud” have become popular among the music, movie, and publishing industry. Allowing for production and publishing companies to sell, transfer and ship their media over the internet, traditional costs for these services can be saved. Reducing expenses leaves increased room for reserving more profits. Not only can the company save money, consumers are rewarded in the form of faster and easier access to the items they want to purchase. Happy customers means returning customers, which directly feeds back into the pockets of the business.
