SELECT LIFESTYLES AND KLICK BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
A SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIP BROUGHT TOGETHER BY SANDWELL MBC – REGENERATION & PLANNING AND THINK SANDWELL
Klick Business Solutions are a Black Country Tender and Bid writing outsourcing company. As a preferred supplier to Sandwell MBC, we work with the Regeneration Team and Think Sandwell to support local Black Country and Birmingham companies who wish to win and deliver contracts to the public sector and private industry but struggle with the time consuming and often mind blowing tender documentation process.
MD of Klick Business Solutions, Andrea Childs delivers regular workshops in partnership with the Sandwell MBC regeneration and business support team. Her workshop, ‘Demystifying the tender process’ is aimed to educate and help companies who can deliver the goods or services but are afraid or confused by the bureaucratic process.
It was at one of these breakfast workshop presentations that Andrea Childs met Steve Lear, Sales Marketing Manager at Select Lifestyles, an Oldbury based supported living, residential and day care services provider. Steve had listened to the presentation/workshop and approached Andrea afterwards to ask her to attend a meeting with his Directors to discuss how Klick and Select could work closer together to secure more winning contracts. Meetings were held and soon after, a tender opportunity for Wolverhampton City Council for ‘reablement care’ was advertised. Working together, Select and Klick wrote and compiled a tender submission to put forward to Wolverhampton City Council.
We are delighted with the success that followed with Select Lifestyles being awarded not one but all Lots on the Wolverhampton contract. Select has already commenced supply on this prestigious contract, maintaining and creating several new local job opportunities within the community.
Further tenders have been submitted on behalf of Select and we look forward to receiving the results of these in the coming weeks. In the meantime we are so thrilled that an excellent partnership has been formed with a local supplier to a local Public Sector that pays dividends for all involved.
