A Seaham based company which helps businesses save money has launched a new digital platform.

Great Annual Savings (GAS) has created the platform compiling the latest business news, views, insight and analysis.

GAS’ team of specialists are providing their expertise for free within the hub, with the aim of helping the business community gain a firmer hold over their business running costs.

The hub will provide advice and support across a wide-range of business sectors, including energy, water, telecoms, insurance, financial management and waste.

Phil Andrew, Associate Director of Customer Experience at GAS, believes the hub is perfect for local SME’s concerned with rising business costs: “We work with over 3,500 businesses across the UK and from our experience, many firms are overspending due to a limitation of in-house knowledge and expertise in crucial areas, especially energy management and the procurement process.

“We’ve designed the business advice hub with SME’s in mind. They’ll have free access to the latest blog posts, whitepapers, videos and industry studies. We’ll also have a roundup of key business news from the web, updated daily by our in-house team.

“As we approach the uncertainty of Brexit, it’s vital that everyone has their house in order.”

The firm, which recently celebrated the appointment of its 200th member of staff, is one of the UK’s fastest growing companies and specialises in assisting businesses to reduce their overall running costs.
