Bills. The bugbear of every business, no matter its size.
Electricity, gas, water, telecoms, internet services, merchant payments – the essentials that no business can do without, but which also take a chunk out of your bottom line.
There is, unfortunately, no way of getting out of paying for these services, but there is a way that these costs can be drastically reduced – thanks to the power of collaboration.
Business Voice is a key priority set out in the BID business plan and we said:
Work with partners to achieve better co-ordination and use of resources
