Data and technology company, Clearview Intelligence, has been announced Champion Business Award winner of hub South West’s Build Ayrshire programme.
Established 35 years ago, the £10m annual turnover business employs 45 people and operates from the Ayrshire Business Centre in Beresford Terrace.
The Build Ayrshire programme guides local construction-related businesses on how to win more new, high-value work from Tier 1 contractors.
The programme, now in its 9th year of operation is managed by hub South West, the public-private partnership of local authorities, NHS, blue light services and leading Tier 1 building contractors.
The programme is delivered in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, North Ayrshire Council, and South Ayrshire Council, and is free for SMEs across Ayrshire.
Kelly Morris, head of client strategy and sustainability at Clearview Intelligence, said: “We’re delighted that we applied for the Build Ayrshire programme.
“It provided a platform for us to present our offering to a number of Tier 1 contractors at once – something which would have taken considerable time for us to achieve ourselves.
“It was a fast, fun, and effective eight weeks and I would highly recommend it to any business in Ayrshire.”
It was delivered in eight half-day online sessions of practical instruction from 3 February to 24 March.
Designed specifically for businesses in or serving the construction sector, the programme covered fundamental business topics including, business strategy, leadership & management, employment law, team communication, digital marketing / social media, tendering & procurement, cyber security, and cloud accounting.
An integral part of the programme and a significant benefit to the delegates were introductions to the Tier 1 contractors, Morgan Sindall, BAM, Kier Construction, Liner Design & Construct, Robertson’s and Clark Contracts.
Mark Houston, supply chain manager at hub South West, said: “It was a privilege to work with Kelly and the other businesses on our secondBuild Ayrshire programme.
“We had a highly productive eight weeks and I believe all the participating companies gained significantly from the learning experience but being able to open doors to meet the Tier 1 contractors can make all the difference to a growing business.”
