Burton-on-Trent healthcare scheduling experts, BookWise Solutions, is to invest in training from Bury-based business specialist, MLP, after being selected for the Government’s Growth Accelerator Scheme.
The prestigious Growth Accelerator Scheme is designed to drive success for SMEs that have been identified as being amongst the top 5% of businesses with potential to expand. Growth Accelerator companies are expected to grow four times faster than average SMEs and BookWise Solutions is targeted to double its turnover within the next three years, with a proportionate increase in staff.
Managing Director of BookWise Solutions, Denise Williamson, says: “Our scheduling software is designed to help our health sector clients to manage their staff, assets and equipment more effectively, helping them to work more efficiently, reduce waste and save costs.
“It’s an area for which there is considerable demand both in the UK and internationally, which has prompted us to open an office in Australia this year. Now we aim to grow significantly in the UK and internationally and we need to ensure that our team is equipped with the skills they need to manage that expansion successfully.”
BookWise solutions has invested in a Sales Manager’s Masterclass for the company’s sales manager, Sarah Cooper, along with MLP’s Goal Setting & Time Management course. The company is now planning for its future training needs, in line with its business plan and the Growth Accelerator programme.
Sarah comments: “We have worked with MLP for sales training before and they provide both a practical toolkit for business improvement and an inspirational approach to motivating people and helping them think more laterally.
“The training has helped me change the way I work and use my time more effectively, and it will continue to add value to the business as we implement our growth plan.”
Mike Le Put, managing director of MLP Training adds: “BookWise Solutions is a great example of how important training is for all successful businesses; it’s an essential tool for continuous business improvement and vital for any company with an ambitious growth plan.
“BookWise Solutions has developed a market leading suite of products for which there is growing, international demand and the training we have provided will help them maximise that potential.”
