BUSINESS SUPPORT SERVICES
There are many business support needs that can lead to management distraction. We can take care of these and let you focus on running your organisation
There are so many things an organisation has to do which are just not core but are still crucial to it. Although we can’t do everything — we just won’t do things where we can not achieve excellence—there are many areas where we can provide the support you need:
PROPERTY EFFICIENCY STRATEGY
By understanding both your business requirements and your existing Property service delivery we will work with you to develop a strategy that supports core operations. By defining your service needs, a sourcing strategy and how the service should be managed we can help to deliver both reduced operating costs and service quality improvements that will make a difference to your core business.
We can offer a range of training and team building exercises for your business. We don’t offer generic service but will develop a solution to meet your specific needs whether it is a one day workshop on business efficiency, a course on business writing or a wacky team building event. One unique course we have developed is our jam making team building session where, in association with Porter’s Preserves www.portersperserves.co.uk, your team will learn about working together under pressure in a totally unique environment.
Good sustainability practice is good business practice as it can offer financial benefits and protect you from reputational risk. We can help to guide you through the fads and fables of ‘environmental correctness’ and help you to operate in a sustainable and ethical manner which can show meaningful and demonstrable commitment to sustainability.
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM REVIEW
Just how well are your suppliers and services being managed? By carrying out an assessment of your existing FM processes and management systems we will help you to understand if they are ‘fit for purpose’ and if there are any gaps that expose you to risk or potential non-compliance. This will allow us to work with you to develop a unique action plan to support both operational efficiency, risk mitigation and compliance.
IT SUPPORT AND ADVICE
IT is critical to all organisations whether they are large or small. Our specialist IT knowledge can help you with the selection of systems and services as well as practical services such as the development of business requirement documents (BRDs), database development and user application testing (UAT) as well as the development of forms and templates in all Microsoft Office applications.
CORPORATE IMAGE ADVICE
AND GRAPHIC DESIGN
“If it looks right it is right” is a common perception therefore how your organisation is branded and presents itself is crucial to how customers and stakeholders perceive it – even something as simple as the choice of a typeface can make a huge difference. We can help you develop a branding strategy and work with graphic designers to come up with an image that reflects what your organisation represents and wants to be.
PRESS AND MEDIA ADVICE
Through our association with a media company, www.knaresboroughnow.co.uk, we are able to provide specialist advice from the other side of the fence regarding what works and does not when projecting yourself to the outside world whether in print or online – do you know just how big your on-line footprint or social media impact really is?
We can help you with your documentation whether it’s an advertisement, a flyer, a marketing document, a presentation or even an internal communiqué. We understand just how important it is that the unwritten message is as good as the written message. We can offer support in PowerPoint, Excel, Visio and InDesign.
We can help you with the production of technical documentation whether it is the development of processes or the production of user guides, for example. We understand that, no matter how complex the core subject is, the document must be easily understood by its intended audience with as little ambiguity as possible.
