Partnership to increase profitability

FIT Show has teamed up with Business Pilot to develop a series of guides to help installers increase profitability.

The ‘WorkSmart’ series will focus on the data that installation businesses should be extracting to help them streamline operations, making them more profitable.

WorkSmart will run monthly in the lead up to FIT Show’s new September 26-28  2021 dates, when the glass and glazing industry exhibition returns to the NEC.

The first in the series (WorkSmart – Are you profitable?) uses exclusive data and insight from the Business Pilot team to challenge installation companies into looking beyond the order book and analysing if they are actually more profitable, or just busy.

FIT Show event director Nickie West said: “A key theme for FIT Show 2021 will be helping our audience to do better business and, ultimately, improve their bottom line.

“We recognise that to deliver true value, above and beyond the three physical days of the event, we have to look at new ways to deliver content to our audience.

“We are always looking at new and innovative ways to work with our exhibitors to extract the information that will add the most value to our audience. While visitors will be able to see Business Pilot at FIT Show in September, we wanted to work with them to develop the co-branded WorkSmart series to start adding value before visitors walk through the halls.”

Managing director of Business Pilot Elton Boocock said: “We have seen how radically things can change in the last 12 months, and it’s really important that as businesses we remain agile to adapt to those challenges.

“The WorkSmart series is about understanding how the commercial landscape has shifted and how installers can adapt to those changes, ultimately making their businesses stronger and more profitable.”
