Reducing Business Costs - Meercat Associates

Watford BID are acutely aware that it is expensive to run a business in Watford and are always searching for new ways to help BID businesses reduce these costs.

I am pleased to announce we are now working in partnership with Meercat Associates, who are the only UK wide BID buying group, and have provided a similar service to a number of Business Improvement Districts in the UK, including; Baker Street, Cambridge, Bath and Winchester.

Meercat are specialist in sourcing and managing contracts for individual businesses, harnessing collective buying powers. Specialising in utilities, telecoms, merchant fees, stationery & print, pest control and testing. The Meercat expert team can take away the stresses and strains of contract procurement and management and help you to save money. Typically, a business saves 34% with average member savings of £622 from other BID case studies.

This is a FREE service to all Watford BID members. There are no additional costs or commissions payable; your BID levy funds this service (along with many other services and projects delivered by Watford BID). The Meercat team does not earn commission from working with BID businesses so the advice they give is impartial.

A representative from Meercat will contact you soon with further information on the scheme. You are under no obligation to meet with them, but I would urge businesses to take advantage of the opportunity and book a visit as there is significant evidence that they will be able to help you make substantial savings.

The scheme will be launched in Watford on 24th & 25th November. If you are interested in being one of the first businesses to take advantage of this service please contact
