The Awards attract a wide range of entries from across all sectors of businesses. Companies competing for the Best New Product/Service award were required to provide evidence of a niche or mass market product or service with a clear business edge and evidence of its ability to demonstrate success in terms of profits or cost savings.
The cost reduction service provided by BCR Associates was deemed the outright winner and Andrew Areoff, Chairman of the Judges, said: “BCR stands for business cost reduction and this is a must-have service for any company. I liked the product concept because it’s crystal clear. Companies get a free audit of their business overheads â€“ utilities, insurance, vehicles, finance and phones etc â€“ and if BCR can find a cheaper supplier, the client gets 100 per cent of all the savings.
