From the cleaners cupboard to 'Dragon's Den'

NIC Services Group has launched a brand new initiative - 'NIC Innovate'. This new scheme is offering a 'Dragon's Den' style opportunity to any supplier who believes they can offer a product or service to enhance the following criteria:

• To improve quality standards for NIC customers.
• To improve efficiency in NIC's cost to operate model.
• To improve profit margins.

The pilot Innovation Day took place on Wednesday 16 November at NIC's central support office in Leeds. Prospective suppliers were asked to apply with a very brief business case on how their product/ services can meet the above key points. They were then offered a 20 minute slot to meet the key stakeholders of the business to discuss their offering further.

NIC group chairman, John Spencer, said: “We are very much looking for ideas that are outside the box. In a very competitive market we need our supply base to be cutting edge and original in their thinking. Industry experience is not vital, great products and service solutions are.”
