When Bournemouth Chamber of Trade member Corporate Clothing Solutions decided to utilise the E Shot service provided by the BCTC the results couldn't have been more instant. Within an hour of the E shot going out CCS had been contacted by fellow BCTC member, Stanley Reeves of S D Leisure.
S&D Leisure run many of Bournemouth's excellent attractions including The Balloon Ride, The Ice Cream Kiosks in the Gardens as well as the attractions at Pier Approach, and were looking for help to resolve a looming uniform problem.
Stanley of S&D Leisure takes up the story. "S&D Leisure are a high profile local company that provides an excellent standard of service to the general public and our image is part and parcel of that standard. S&D employees wear a striped waistcoat, which has become synonymous with S&D leisure, but our previous supplier was no longer able to offer this garment. We were in danger of that image being compromised.
I had seen the BCTC e shot which highlighted Corporate Clothing Solutions as a local company that not only supplied uniforms to the Hospitality Industry but also had over 30 years of manufacturing experience supplying all types of work wear. After a phone call Glen Elms their M.D. immediately came out to see me and after taking away a sample the process began. My staff are now in their new waistcoats and needless to say we are delighted.
A final word from CCS's M.D. Glen Elms
"At the beginning of 2012 we decided we would like to increase our profile in the Bournemouth and Poole area and so embarked on the process through a variety of marketing and networking strategies.
One of the most important decisions was to join both the BCTC and the Bournemouth Area Hotel association (BAHA). We have been overwhelmed by the response and of course have been particularly happy with the E shots where the return on investment has been excellent.
We have had a number of enquiries resulting in orders but to end up doing business with such an important and high profile Bournemouth company as S&D Leisure is particularly pleasing".
