From June 2006, Netstationers is the latest member of The Franchise Alliance, a group of 10 franchise companies from different industry sectors.
The Franchise Alliance, together with NatWest, host free educational seminars throughout the UK to highlight the benefits of franchising as a successful and increasingly popular way to set up a small business. These events will run weekly until the end of 2006 and offer a great starting point for those looking at researching a career in franchising. The seminar format has been running for nearly 6 years and has seen over 6,000 people attend the events.
Pam Feltham, Franchise Alliance Franchise Advisor comments, “We are pleased that Netstationers has decided to join us, as they can provide a market leading viewpoint for those people who might be considering investing in a home based, business to business, sales focused franchise.”
Netstationers is a franchise opportunity in the lucrative £6 billion Office Products market. As a franchisor they provide excellent sales support, allowing their franchisee to achieve substantial earnings. They do this through use of market leading e-procurement technology, so that all the efforts of the franchisees are directed at growing their customer base. The franchisees don’t have to worry about holding stock or making deliveries, or invoicing and credit control. Netstationers provide comprehensive training which has a focus on winning and retaining customers.
At the seminars, as part of the Best Practice Showcase, Netstationers will have the opportunity to inform those considering a franchise of any type what they could expect from a franchise such as themselves. Attendees will be given an overview of the initial training, ongoing support services provided. This will enable the delegates to benchmark good and ethical franchise companies’ standards as they begin their research into franchising.
