Highlights of 2019!
2019 has been a huge year for our company, we’ve accomplished so much within the year while still offering the best service to our customers as we always have.
The biggest part for us this year has been the move to the Brighouse high street. The move has allowed the company to be closer to a community of local shoppers and businesses as well as being close to our new and existing customers in the town centre.
The move to the high street has also led to new staff joining the company, we have expanded our customer service, and telesales executives and our plans for 2020 is to employ between 60-80 new staff.
We have our finger on the pulse when it comes to technology and Ecommerce. In early December we were placed as 11th out of 100 ‘Ecommerce Trailblazers’ New technologies we have introduced this year including the Contactless Charity Box, Contactless donation plates and mini boxes as well as a standalone podium, allowing for easier contactless payments and donations to charities. The product has already seen a large amount of interest from Overgate Hospice in Elland as well as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton.
A few highlights of the year include signing contracts with Cannon Hall Fram, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Eden Camp, Scarborough Cricket Club, Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel, Baby Ballet, Oulton Hall and Melvyn Carr Ltd.
2019 was the first year of The Best of Brighouse Awards, an awards evening curated by Yorkshire Payments and Town Hall Dental to honour and recognise the great achievements of businesses and individuals in Brighouse. It was a huge success and we will be running the event again in 2020, stay tuned for more information of how to nominate and vote.
In November, we were thrilled to receive SME of the year at the Calderdale, excellence in business awards. This was a very proud moment for us to see our hard work and team work go recognised was a huge privilege.
This Christmas we produced a documentary highlighting the importance of shopping locally in Brighouse, especially during the festive period. We took to the streets to ask businesses and shoppers on the high street “Why do you think it is important to shop locally?” See what they said in our video below:
