The Minehead BID partners with Meercat, specialists in identifying where individual businesses can make savings. Meercat is a procurement consultancy and operates the National BID Buying Group.

Their savings and support consultants analyse the bill information and provide an easy to understand benchmark report detailing all the savings available to the business. If the business chooses to save your business money by moving to a new supplier, Meercat Associates works with them to make the switch as simple as possible, managing the changing contracts on the levy payers behalf.

This is a FREE service to all Minehead BID members. There are no additional costs or commissions payable; the BID levy funds this service (along with many other services and projects delivered by Minehead BID).
Meercat has worked exclusively with Business Improvement Districts and operating across the UK to harness the collective buying power of businesses.

Typically a business saves 34% with average member savings of £622.

  • Energy
