L – R Jim Khor, Colin Hughes, Katie Cruickshank & Philip Waine
Following the success of previous events, Leonherman (Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers) staged their fist summer Mix & Mingle network event hosted by the Metropolitan Hotel, Didsbury.
It was a great opportunity for current and prospective clients and collaborators, such as Ralli Solicitors and COS bookkeeping to meet and share ideas, resources and expertise.
Philip Waine (Practice Manager) introduced me to Colin Hughes (VIP Facilities Services). Colin operates a successful ‘Wheelie Bin’ cleaning service. He told me that an increasing number of his clients wish to pay him by debit or credit card. Colin recognised that he is losing business by not offering this service. I explained the basic operations of our robust mobile solution, favoured by mobile traders. Colin and I have scheduled a further meeting.
Philip then introduced me to Jim Khor. Jim operates two casual dining operations, a food market stall and attends street festivals/carnivals with his outside catering service. Jim loved the smartPOS and in particular the Pre-Order and Pre-Pay (POPP) feature. Customers can order and pay through an App on their smart phone and then collect their order from an express lane at your stall/counter.
The smartPOS has been successfully trailed and installed at Rotherham United FC food kiosks. smartPOS has provided hard data showing the increase in efficiency and profits through its implementation. Jim and I arranged a meeting for a full demonstration.
Peter Brassington (Head of Business Services) introduced me to Louise Magill. Louise is a free lance Charity Fundraising consultant. After chatting with her for several minutes, I proposed an introduction to Lizzy Toms of the Alltogether Social Trust.
The remainder of the evening was spent consolidating and starting new relationships with other attendees. Thanks Leonherman for the invitation.
