Business ADvisory Support

Business Advisory Support is a market leader in telecoms and energy cost reduction and are based here in Glasgow. They have already helped many businesses reduce their utility costs, sometimes with as much as 25-30%. If you'd like to know more about what BAS does to achieve this, there is a short information video available on their website.

BAS has already helped other BIDs and their members. One of them is Alloa, where Tea Room Alloa was able to save enough on their utility bills to cover their levy fee. Byres Road & Lanes BID would like to provide the same opportunity to our businesses to lower the business costs in the area. We want to encourage BID members to get in touch with us about this, and we will ask BAS to contact you.

A BID business that has switched to Changeworks is CUP on 311 Byres Road. As part of its service, Changeworks helps train staff to increase recycling levels and reduce waste, and by doing so, CUP is making monthly savings of between £200 and £400 across its three tea rooms. In addition to cost savings, it has raised the company's green profile, and the more they recycle, the more savings they do.
