Announcing Innovative New Products from innovate now

Talk to us about websites and social media, training and compliance.

At Innovate Now we specialise in business development and strategies for growth.  We aim to inspire ambitious businesses to be bigger and better and help them innovate to achieve their goals, and help them implement the practical tools and processes they need to make this happen.  We do this by offering a bespoke package of coaching, mentoring, training and consultancy to suit your needs and by matching you with the right people in our team of Associates who have the skills and experience to help you achieve your goals.  We can even help you find funding to pay for all or part of the project.

Over the past few months we’ve been working hard to add a number of new services to our innovate now tool kit that we can offer as part of the implementation part of a project.

As part of an overall marketing and social media strategy, we can help you build a website and online presence that works for you.  We are not traditional ‘web designers’ – we work on an agency model and put our effort into designing the structure and functionality of your site (using WordPress and professionally-built themes that we can customise and adapt to suit your needs) rather than just making it look nice.  Our Innovate Connect team and Innovate Now Associates are all experienced businesspeople, strategists and online specialists, and they will work with you to:

  • create a website that does what you need it to do, whether that’s advertising what you do, reaching the right markets, giving people information, selling and e-commerce.
  • help you create a social media strategy that is realistic and achievable and meets your needs.
  • make sure anything we create for you fits with your overall business needs
  • give you ownership of your site so that you don’t have to keep coming back to us every time you need something changing or updating
  • train you up so that you manage and maintain everything yourself
  • make sure that your website is regularly updated and backed-up
  • help you access funding that will cover some of the costs of any work that we do for you.

Innovate complianceinnovate compliance

We can offer compliance and quality management as part of a business development package or as a standalone project.

From July 2014, it became mandatory to make sure that all structural metal components and products, throughout the supply chain, comply with BS EN 1090 and carry a relevant CE mark.  We have a developed a process to guide you through everything you need to do to gain the appropriate accreditation and implement the required tracking, management and auditing systems.

As part of this process, you may also have to achieve ISO 9001 or other similar quality management standards and we can include this in any compliance project.
