Advice Cloud proudly partner with Social Value Business
We're very pleased to announce our new partnership with Social Value Business - enhancing our services for suppliers to the public sector.
Here at Advice Cloud we’re very pleased to announce that we are now working alongside Social Value Business to offer more support to our clients.
Delivering social value is essential in partnering with the public sector and transforming services. In fact, Central Government agreements already include at least 10% weighting towards social value within their evaluation criteria. And today’s customers and employees increasingly make purchasing decisions based on how companies treat society and the planet.
In short: if social value isn’t currently part of your thought process and decision making, you could be left behind.
Richard Dickins, MD Social Value Business, says: “Local and national government increasing look for evidence of social value creation when awarding public sector tenders. They want to see commitment to a shared agenda of creating jobs and skills, encouraging economic growth and supporting a green recovery post-Covid.
“Working together with Advice Cloud, we can help you to navigate the changes, understand the brilliant value you already create and be more successful at winning business.”
Chris Farthing, CEO at Advice Cloud adds: “This is already a game changing partnership for us and our clients! Having seen a number of client wins in the past 3 months which the Advice Cloud and SVB expertise has materially affected. We don’t see that slowing down either, as Social Value in procurement is better understood and implemented on both the government buyer and seller sides, to the benefit of the nation.”
What do Advice Cloud and Social Value Business support with?
Social Value Business is a UK market leader in supporting organisations with measuring and evaluating their social value. The SVB team can work with you to enhance the impact your work has on employees, communities and the planet. SVB can also guide you on structured routes to accreditation.
We’re excited to twin these highly valuable services with Advice Cloud’s guidance on enabling procurement for suppliers. We take pride in helping SMEs and organisations provide products and services to the public sector (through avenues such as frameworks and tenders) and want to ensure that these solutions provide benefit and social value.
With our joint support, we make sure that your organisation’s strategy is fit for the public sector. This means buyable, sustainable, and making a difference.
Advice Cloud’s Managing Director, Ella Grant, says: “Social Value is so much more than a tender requirement – Suppliers are having to take a hard look at the impact of some of their operational policies/strategies, for example their recruitment practices, mental health support and community involvement, as well as wider supply chain considerations.” And she summarises our excitement about our new client services perfectly too… “We’re delighted to be supporting Suppliers with understanding where they can make a difference and do good, impactful work with the public sector.”
