Dead Space Webinar - Thursday 19th February

When your employees are travelling to and from meetings/delivery or work flexibly, it no longer makes sense to measure the amount of time that an employee spends in the office as a signifier of productivity.

Join Frankie on the 19th February at 10am to understand how you can utilise dead space in your business! How you can get the most out of your staff to drive your business forward in time that they didn’t even realise that they had...

Let’s do a quick system check: https://link.gotomeeting.com/system-check

Accounts Enquiries...

We’re pleased to say that turn-around time to pay franchisee accounts is the quickest it’s been for a while - with next day payments contributing to this.

Plans to further improve the speed in which we get payments into your account are in place, but we are aware our accounts department have fallen behind dealing with franchisee enquiries in recent weeks and we would like to apologise to you personally for that.

After Steve Girling left the company in October, David Batch has been concentrating on improving processes in an effort to speed up the flow of cash into your bank.

With this focus, coupled with long term staff absence - which we did not originally envisage would be more than a few days - our enquiry backlog has increased, and we have been unable to resolve your issues in a timely manner.

We are putting extra resource into this as we strive to provide a rapid turnaround time for both payment and enquiry times.

To help - we have created a new email address dedicated to your accounts queries, so they are not mixed with other emails and thus can respond much quicker.

If you have any accounts queries from now on, please email [email protected] for a faster response.

If you cc other people or addresses in, (like Courtney or Ricky), this will SLOW the response time while we establish if anyone else has begun dealing with your enquiry - so PLEASE just use this address.

Top Tips...

  • Check course is marked GREEN before enquiring
  • Have you checked to see if an invoice has been receipted and ‘pending’?
  • Do you remind schools (or councils), to send remittance advice?

To add to this process improvement, we are also planning much more important enhancements to actually make the school pay quicker - which is where the majority of the wait time lays. Currently 50% of all Awaiting Payments are OVERDUE FROM SCHOOLS.

In the meantime, you can mitigate this by ensuring your cash flow document is up to date and working on Debtor terms recommended in our training.

Thanks for your patience whilst we strive to deliver a WOW service.

Accounts Update...

Quick update to remind you to get camp payment sheets in so we can make payment into your account. The only outstanding camp payments on the system are ones which are still marked red.

All extra-curricular courses are up to date and paid, again - some red flagged courses remain.

School payments have been made within 4 days of being receipted, (which is now done on a daily basis) - and franchise enquiries are also up to date and will be resolved with no backlog to contend with moving forward.

Ramp up for your sales pipeline with TIME!

As well as your normal on-going communications with schools, there are a few special occasions throughout the year that deserve specific focus to keep you at the forefront of schools when they are thinking about Health & Wellbeing through physical activity.

The next one just over the horizon is World Book Day on the 1st March 2018, you can use the specially designed World Book Day Creative Arts Pass, and World Book Day Exclusive Ticket to get interest from, and meetings with schools.

To support this specific campaign TIME Associates have kindly agreed to support a Buy 5 get 1 FREE promotion.

All you need to do is purchase 5 new* appointments via BMS and then contact Glenn Hoy at TIME, he will then allocate FREE appointments.

*You can use existing purchased TIME appointments for this campaign, but this would not attract the FREE one.

The time limit to when you can use these appointments is the end of the 2017/18 school year in July so if they are not all booked by World Book Day they can be carried forward.

With half-term 2 weeks way this gives you 3 full weeks to get those meetings and secure that business if you act NOW!
