I.T. Consulting, Services and Solutions serving Small Businesses throughout Lancashire and Yorkshire Director, David Montgomery has been working in I.T. since leaving college in the mid 1980’s, working at Burnley Office Supplies, Dentons of Burnley, Sankey Office Supplies, Axion Systems and Navigator Solutions before forming Advantage Computers almost 5 years ago. “I’ve been a Burnley fan since I was 8 years old so being associated with the club gives me a great buzz. To have seen the club competing at the top level again makes me proud and it’s something I’d like to replicate with Advantage Computers.” “I’ve spent pretty much my entire working life in and around Burnley. Although we’re based in Todmorden, a huge percentage of our customer base is in this area.” “When I started at Burnley Office Supplies, I was a programmer. I got to know the customer and their needs and designed them a system. I know it sounds unbelievable but I’m still maintaining a system that I wrote 16 or 17 years ago.” Up until recently, all our recommendations were by word of mouth. That requires a lot of faith on behalf of the customer and it’s something we don’t take lightly. We design and write custom database solutions, working closely with the customer to deliver truly usable solutions. Nowadays the “usable” part of that statement is very important. It’s so easy to over complicate things. We also offer service and support for hardware and software and can fit with any role, whether its

Page 6 | By Official Appointment Members Directory 2010

ad-hoc service on an hourly basis or a fully managed service on a monthly retainer. Some customers want to retain control while others just want to get on with running their businesses and want us to manage everything. We’re happy to play it which ever way works for the customer. More often than not, we become an integral part of a small business, acting as a trusted source for anything related to I.T., whether it’s just a bit of advice or a fully managed and monitored support service. Increasingly, a big part of what we do revolves around the security and protection of information. Anything from gateway security, to top of the line antivirus solutions, filtering spam, secure USB sticks or offsite backup solutions. We put a lot of time into making sure we’ve chosen the right solutions, solutions we know we can trust and have no hesitation in recommending to our customers. The core of our website focuses around these solutions. As the Advantage Computers brand becomes better known, business owners and home users alike will be able to visit the site and know the solutions are tried, tested and trusted. And what better way to drive that locally than to be associated with Burnley Football Club. This focus has also helped us gain some traction nationally, supplying anti malware

solutions to the likes of The Medical Research Council. One of the security vendors we work very closely with ESET, a company who offer pioneering proactive malware solutions. As an Authorised Reseller, we offer the whole range of ESET solutions as well as 50% discounts for Education, Non Profit groups and Further Education Students.

ESET products have built a solid reputation and gained 56 Virus Bulletin VB100 awards, more than any other antivirus company. Add to that their NOD32 antivirus product has not missed an “in the wild” virus sample since May 1998, impressive stats by any standards. At a recent partner conference, we heard ESET referred to as “the best kept secret in antivirus”.

We’ve teamed up with ESET to offer 10% off RRP to all Burnley Fans by simply ordering through our website and entering the coupon code “BURNLEY” at the checkout stage. This offer is valid until the end of the 2010/2011 season.

Keeping the country moving

North Valley, Byron Road, Colne, Lancashire BB8 0RF

Promotion to the English Premier League catapulted Burnley Football Club into the big time. And proud club sponsor David Fishwick says his beloved club’s ascension to the English Premier League also helped boost his own new ventures and business developments. David, whose name sits atop the stand where the teams emerge at Turf Moor, has resolutely fought off turbulent economic tailwinds buffeting the UK's business landscape. And the self-made 38-year-old has also managed to keep his burgeoning national van, minibus and mini-coach sales - and in-house vehicle conversion business - on track for another year of growth. “I've been involved with the club for about five years,” he explained. “I've also sponsored the 5,000-strong stand, and to be honest having the Fishwick Stand has been an amazing public relations coup for us. “I didn't believe in the huge power of football for marketing but it's truly been incredible. “We chose that stand because the home and away supporters sit in it and it’s neatly in the TV arc, so it's really helping to get the brand out there.” Right now, raising the bar for brand and marketing is firmly on the radar for Mr Fishwick, who is planning to take his already successful business up a notch and consider further expansion. To this end, he has recently embarked on a namechange for his company to David Fishwick Minibus, dropping the previous sole alliance to LDV in the business name. This, he says, newly reflects its recent stellar growth to supply all types of minibuses and vans to his typical client companies such as travel businesses, local authorities, schools and hospitals. Although chiefly well-known for years as the leading supplier of LDV vehicles, the new economic reality means that David Fishwick is also a principal dealer for most brands,

Page 32 | By Official Appointment Members Directory 2010

including Mercedes, Fiat, Iveco, Optare and VW, either as factory-built minibuses, or increasingly as conversions - customising vehicles to specific, tailormade requirements. Today, to meet demand for the growing market for conversions, his South Wales factory has capacity to build more than 1,000 vehicles a year - making the company the largest supplier of wheelchair accessible vehicles and mini coaches in the country. “Although the recession has been tough and made for a difficult year, the business does have a recession-proof element to it because schools and local authorities, for example, still need to get their buses,” explained Mr Fishwick. So what propels the man behind this success? Like most entrepreneurs, Mr Fishwick admits he is driven by a compulsion to 'do the deal' rather than be hide-bound by process and systems. It's a long way from his departure from school at 16 without any qualification, but a lorry , or rather, van load of ambition! “I came from a poor but hardworking background but that never prevented me from always having a huge sense of ambition. “I've always liked having a goal and then achieving it.’ Having made his first million in his 20s from the business and then deciding to expand that horizon to becoming a multi-millionaire in his 30s – replete

today with his own helicopter and Ferrari's - Mr Fishwick is keen to stress it's not just about the money. “What the money does offer is choice - to learn to fly, say, or to travel, to invest and try out new things for a business - but the greater challenge is to develop and keep on creating new opportunities.” One pressing task on his 'to do' list is raising his profile further, revealing that he's already been approached by Secret Millionaire - Channel 4's show

0800 2949474 01282 863563

that follows a self-made entrepreneur going undercover to work with charities or groups helping society's less well-off, only to reveal their true identity and a cheque to match later - and other similar programmes. “I've not - yet! - decided to opt for such shows but there might be one I do appear on in the forthcoming weeks, but I can't yet reveal it - but keep your eyes peeled on prime-time TV!” he laughed.

Wallowing in our success

Sandringham Court, Bentleywood Way, Network 65, Burnley. BB11 5PY

Hippo Group Limited was established by Thomas & Richard Preston, part of the Preston family from Earby, Lancashire. The Preston family - coal traders since 1906- changed direction by 1960 and its founder family member, George Preston, moved into the motor trade. It is since then that the Preston family name has been synonymous with excellence within the motor trade. Well respected within the motor industry having been fortunate enough to secure franchises with some of the world’s top manufacturers, such as: Mitsubishi; Land Rover; BMW and Mini, our aim was to build on our experience by developing a group of companies which would not only provide expert advice to anyone looking for a vehicle to suit their needs, but also to source any make and model of vehicle at hugely discounted prices whilst also being able to provide, if required, unbeatable finance packages and terms. Hippo Vehicle Solutions supply contract hire and leasing solutions for all makes of new and used cars and

vans. We often source and purchase vehicles ourselves in bulk, taking advantage of huge discounts which ultimately we can pass onto you. Hippo Finance Limited has grown to become one of the North West’s leading finance brokers. Having expanded its capabilities and now offering its brokerage services to local car dealers, commercial and asset finance to businesses, and of course to individuals looking to finance vehicles, we have certainly made a great name for ourselves. And once again we believe that coupled with competitive rates and flexible terms, great personal service is key. Hippo Prestige was established to offer our most discerning clients the opportunity to acquire the very latest prestige and performance cars on the road today. Our experienced team will advise and assist to ensure you find the car that most suits your needs.

Official Memorabilia Suppliers to BFC Hello there, my name is Michael “Braddy” Bradshaw and I am the director of Sporting Image Ltd. Here’s an insight into how I got to where I am today, running my own sports memorabilia company. My epic journey started in 1996 whilst playing rugby league for my local club Waterhead ARLFC. I was asked if I would like to be the Oldham Bears official club mascot, Buster Bear for a Super League match against Sheffield Eagles. Being a bit of a character I accepted the offer and have never looked back! I have since gone on to work for the following professional sports clubs as their official club mascot: • • • • • • • • • • •

Oldham Roughyeds (Red Ed the Roughyed) Castleford Tigers (Tiger Man) Leeds Rhinos (Ronnie Rhino) Newcastle Falcons (Flash the Falcon) Sale Sharks (Sharky) Leeds Tykes (Terry the Tyke) Wrexham FC (Wrex The Dragon) Yorks CC (Scorch the Dragon and Max the Miner) Bradford Bulls (Bullboy) Burnley FC (Bertie Bee) The GB Rugby League mascot (The Mane Man).

I have graced Wembley, Murrayfield, the Millenium Stadium and many club grounds around the country in various sports collecting memorabilia and making lots of friends in England and overseas along the way, many of them top sportstars! After years of collecting memorabilia I decided to use my knowledge and contacts in sport and set up my own company and that's when I finally arrived at my destination with Sporting Image Ltd. Yours in sport, Mick “Braddy” Bradshaw

To the West and North of Padiham, Mainline services also extend out to Accrington, Clitheroe, Hapton, Altham and Shuttleworth Mead and to the East and North of Colne, Mainline services extend out to Barnoldswick, Earby, Keighley, Cowling and Trawden. Recently, Mainline has invested more than £3.1 million in 19 new state of the art buses, which all which feature spacious interiors and comfortable, wider seating with leather headrests, are fully accessible for wheelchairs and buggies. There is also improved lighting and CCTV for added safety and comfort. Each bus is branded with the Mainline logo and the striking claret colour throughout to

make the vehicles easy to identify. Getting around Burnley is easier with Starship, local buses serving Burnley and Nelson which run throughout the day, 7 days a week. During the day, Starship services generally run at least every 30 minutes, with frequencies increased to every 10 minutes on some routes, so this really is a great way to travel. Getting to the match should now be even easier with bus services operated by Transdev Burnley & Pendle. We know that many Burnley FC fans choose to travel to home matches by bus, avoiding busy match day traffic and the hassle of finding a parking space. Plus it leaves you free to enjoy a drink either before or after the game. We hope that even more people will choose to leave their car at home, especially with 1 day tickets priced at just £3.50 for unlimited travel in Burnley, or from as little as £2 per adult for season ticket holders who purchase a ticket t’turf. Both tickets include travel on both Mainline and Starship services operated by Transdev Burnley & Pendle. For bus timetable information; Visit Or ring our customer services team on 0845 60 40 110.

The Utility Warehouse don’t do introductory offers to entice new customers that suddenly go up in price after a few months. All their members benefit from consistently good value and great customer service at all times, for as long as they remain a customer.

Business Opportunity •

How many people do you know who use the phone, switch on a light, turn on the oven or use the Internet? The Utility Warehouse are not asking people to spend extra money on services they do not normally use, they are simply offering the same services but with one major difference - they offer far better value!

There are two options available to you:

1) Raise money for your local community… By joining as a Community Fundraiser (CFR) and encouraging your supporters to use these services, you could generate a substantial new source of income to re-invest in your community.

2) Earn an income which could change your life… •

Every time your customers make a phone call, switch on a light, turn on the heating or surf the net, you could be getting paid. The residual income you build will continue to be paid as long as your customers continue to use these services, and that could be long after you have stopped building your Telecom plus business!

Find out how you can start saving and start earning!
