March Buy Dorset Event

The March Buy Dorset Event is to take place on Wednesday 27th March 2013.

The event is to be hosted by Studioworks in their offices at County Gates in Bournemouth, Dorset.

StudioWorks are a Dorset based marketing and design agency. City Centre have a been a customer of StudioWorks for a number of years after meeting Rad Dougall, their MD, at a Buy Dorset event back in 2010. They have gone on from initially designing some corporate folders for us, Hyundai delivering staff to jobs in Dorset, Hampshire and Somersetto wrapping our two Hyundai people carriers which we use to move staff around jobs in Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset. Their latest project has been our new website which has given us a refreshed online presence.

City Centre recruitment are active members of Buy Dorset with their MD, Dan Shrimpton, acting as an ambassador for Buy Dorset. Wherever possible, through our commitment to Buy locally, City Centre aims to buy from Dorset based companies.

Recently we have switched suppliers from a number of national and out of area suppliers to Buy Dorset members including:

Telecoms – moved from BT and Vodafone to Comms UK

Printers and Photocopiers – moved from Ikon/Ricoh to Canotec

We are in the process of appointing new suppliers for a limited number of other services and products we buy.

City Centre recruitment can wholeheartedly recommend the Buy Dorset, Buy Local way of doing business. Not only are you doing your bit for the local community you also end up with a far superior value for money product or service. I will give you an example of how this has worked for City Centre recently:

We moved our mobile’s from Vodafone to Comms UK based in Bournemouth. During the move over we had to change sim cards for all our phones and ipads. We managed to specify a normal sim card for one of the company iPad’s. On trying to fit the new sim we realised we needed a micro sim. We informed Comms UK who were able to reassign the iPad’s telephone number to a new micro sim and dropped it into the office of their way home.

If you have not already signed up for Buy Dorset then i would urge you to have a look at their website and attend their latest networking event.
