Support for the Services Industry

The Service Industry focuses on winning and delivering projects to both specification and agreed timescales. Failing to deliver on a project as agreed, due to a lack of support can lead to a dent in reputation and potentially make or break important relationships with your clients. By improving the client journey, with better processes and a little external support, we help our clients deliver exceptional quality every time.

Mark Williams

Director of sales-mind(UK)Ltd

The company I run sales-mind (UK) Ltd, has been a client of Jo for over 18 months. Being an SME, the service Jo has provided has been invaluable. She has supported the business providing a seamless interaction with clients, proactive and structured operational support and diligent credit control. This has enabled us to focus much more of our time and energy on the key tasks of product service and business development. Without the support that Jo offers we would not have been able to have the stellar year that 2019 was for us.

Support for the Health and Beauty Industry

Focusing on an existing client base instead of constantly striving to gain new clients, enables us to  increase the value and frequency of what, and how we sell to those who already buy from us. Promoting brand awareness, by shining a light on products and treatments, using social media and industry-specific software for the Health and Beauty sector, such as Phorest(used by many salon owners),enables you to strategically target, an already loyal audience.

Support for the Trades

Quality tradespeople are in demand, but the time spent doing the job itself, doesn't leave much time for anything else. Many trades, having taken the time to quote for work, don't then find the time to follow up on the quote. Potentially resulting in lost income, possibly losing out on business to the competition, not to mention the damage to your reputation for not responding to a query. In the chaos of the day-to-day work, essential elements of running the business such as annual servicing, having a social media presence and looking after existing clients often don't make it to the top of the to-do list. 

Jamie Sinclair

Owner SJS Plumbing & Heating Ltd

As a plumbing and heating company I spend a lot of time out and about in my van on the road and at clients homes, so finding time to book on service calls and complete admin tasks can be tricky. Jo took on various admin tasks, including the task of booking in my boiler servicing calls for me using a CRM system with reminder prompts to contact those who have boiler servicing due. Having Jo look after this for me has made this process so much easier. It has firstly meant that as a company we can help our customers keep on top of their yearly servicing which is important for them in retaining their boiler warranties. For me personally, it has also meant that I have the peace of mind of knowing that my boiler servicing is being booked in for me, which frees up my time to be able to spend working within my own skill set of looking after my clients plumbing and heating needs, rather than spending hours on the phone and doing admin tasks. This has enabled me to work more efficiently and effectively, knowing that Jo is taking care of the admin processes behind the scenes. Jo is very professional, efficient and accommodating in the tasks I ask her to do (even organising my Christmas Party) and I would not hesitate to recommend her Business Support Service to others who need help with admin and implementing processes in their business. Thank You so much Jo for helping me to keep my business running behind the scenes
