It’s been a while since we last sat down with Paul, the Network’s Managing Director, to chat. Here’s what he had to say when we asked for an update:
BigChange: Please remind us of what the Network is.
Paul: The BigChange Network allows our customers to work with other businesses seamlessly, whilst maintaining control of their documentation, updates, controls and alerts. Businesses can win or offer work, and it’s especially useful where they don’t have the geographical reach or right skillset to deliver a service for their client, or they want to grow their business.
BigChange: How has the Network grown over the last year?
Paul: We’ve seen terrific growth of the Network across the last year and now have over 170 businesses using the system to support them. It’s growing all the time!
BigChange: What are your Network highlights so far; are there any particular successes that stand out to you?
Paul: There are a number of areas. The running of regular events that allow customers to meet with others wanting to work together; these have proved very successful. Also, supporting customers with highlighting particular service offerings they have or where they’ve been looking to find others to work for them on particular projects, have resulted in very positive outcomes. We’re also spending time talking to customers to find out what else they want from our Network and putting these suggestions into future development specifications.
BigChange: What should users and potential users be looking forward to in the coming months?
Paul: We will be spending time meeting customers to understand how we can support them further. There’re also more events coming that will be held across the UK, along with industry specific events held at our offices in Leeds. They’re a great way to network with other like-minded businesses. We are also currently working on new developments that will bring added functionality when using our Network.
BigChange: Is it easy to join the Network? Is there a cost?
Paul: It’s very simple to join our Network – it can be done right from within our system by clicking on the Network tab. There’s no cost to use the Network.
BigChange: Can I offer my services to others via the Network?
Paul: Yes. We are currently supporting customers to do this by sharing their details with all our customers using our system. Please contact us at email@example.com. In future developments we will be adding a jobs board where this can then be directly done via the system.
BigChange: How can I find out more?
Paul: You can find out more about the BigChange Network by visiting https://www.bigchange.com/products/join-the-bigchange-network/. We look forward to hearing from you!
