Businesswise teams up with Chamber

The East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is to work alongside a Nelson business in a bid to help reduce costs and improve efficiencies for its members.

Operating beneath the Chamber Wise brand, cost reductions firm Businesswise Solutions is set to provide a truly unique opportunity for Chamber members across the region.

Peter Catlow, Businesswise Solutions’ director of cost management, said: “This is a real opportunity for businesses across the region to work together and enjoy big savings.

“We launch our relationship with our Insurance Buying Group, in which we guarantee anyone joining the group a minimum 10% saving on their existing premiums.

“The concept makes perfect sense; we can significantly reduce costs through group purchasing, and the more businesses who sign up to the offer, the better the cost savings we can achieve for all involved.”

In time, it is hoped that Chamber Wise will become the umbrella for a number of services that will add value and reduce costs for Chamber members.

Darren Grantham, head of membership services for the Chamber, said: “We are committed to helping Pennine Lancashire enjoy a thriving economy and we do this in a number of ways.

“Key to our service is to help members increase productivity and reduce costs and this is exactly what we are offering through our new Chamber Wise relationship.

“We will be providing continual messaging about the benefits of Chamber Wise and increasing our offering via this channel in coming months.” Businesswise Solutions, which has recently become a Diamond Ambassador of the Chamber, has partnered with Financial Affairs, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, in order to provide the insurance offer, which in underwritten by Zurich.
