National contract cleaning and facility managed services specialist, NIC Services Group, has launched a brand new initiative ‘NIC Innovate’, which is offering a ‘Dragons Den’ style opportunity to any supplier who believes they can offer a product or service to enhance the following criteria:
- To improve Quality Standards for NIC customers.
- To improve efficiency in NIC’s cost to operate model.
- To improve Profit Margins.
The pilot Innovation Day will take place on Wednesday 16 November 2016 at NIC’s central support office in Leeds. Prospective suppliers will be asked to apply with a very brief business case on how their product/ services can meet the above key points. They will then be offered a 20 minute slot to meet the key stakeholders of the business to discuss their offering further. If successful and there is interest a further meeting will be arranged to discuss trials, implementations etc.
NIC Group chairman, John Spencer commented:
“We are very much looking for ideas that are `outside the box`, in a very competitive market we need our supply base to be cutting edge and original in their thinking. Industry experience is not vital, great products and service solutions are.”
Anyone wishing to submit a proposal should contact: Sam Pinnick – Special Projects Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The deadline is 1 November 2016.
