WinWeb are passionate about reducing the mortality rate of small businesses, which stands at a staggering 60% despite various government initiatives designed to reduce this figure, and are delighted to be working with SFEDI on this new venture.
It has always been WinWeb’s objective to build a small business infrastructure, thereby allowing small businesses to focus on their customers and success, rather than their paperwork. With SFEDI’s focus on helping small businesses through training and mentoring the partnership, which has been formed to create a network of Business Service Professionals, is both natural and exciting.
When WinWeb and SFEDI spoke about their vision to reduce small business mortality the parallels in their thinking were recognised and the concept of a network of Business Service Professionals was born. In conjunction with SFEDI, who are the Government recognised UK Standards Setting Body for Business Support and Business Enterprise, WinWeb and SFEDI have set about making a complete small business infrastructure a reality; not only with fully integrated and cost effective small business software solutions, but also through a network of trained mentors who can provide help, guidance and support to both fledgling and established businesses.
Business Service Professionals will be able to offer small businesses mentoring, as approved through the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE) a mentoring body guided by the SFEDI Advisory board, as well as offering professional business outsourcing solutions, cloud based software solutions and professional eCommerce solutions.
The concept of the Business Service Professional is the empowerment of small businesses to succeed through the support and guidance of a group of accredited mentors who can offer practical solutions for the world of eCommerce, small business software and outsourcing options. SFEDI recognises the importance of training and mentoring and all Business Service Professionals will have training through the IOEE to ensure they are offering the best possible guidance to small businesses.
The reduction of the small business mortality rate is necessary not only for the success of individuals, but also for the growth and improvement of the UK economy. WinWeb and SFEDI believe that Business Service Professionals offer a way to reduce the appalling 60% small business mortality rate.
