The old do-it-yourself slogan ‘Don’t move, improve!’ fits well in these straitened financial times!
So when the training department at top home improvement business Wickes wanted to save some cash without abandoning their Master Programme Level 1 training, they turned to us.
Make the training budget stre-e-e-tch!
Our clients always get great value for money from us. But we’re always ready to help them make savings when they need to. Our relationship with Wickes goes almost ten years, so we were happy to help them trim the costs of the materials that we’d developed for them.
Account manager Peter Gammon came up with a workable solution: he pointed out that, because Wickes were no longer updating their content, a loose-leaf-in-binder format was no longer necessary.
We produced a new mock-up of the content, turning it into a wiro-bound (spiral-bound) book, merging the previously, relatively expensive, tabbed dividers into the page layout.
This enabled the unit cost per book to drop from £15 to £9
– quite a cost saving across a total of 1,000 books.
