Business start up
Setting up a new business can be a very confusing, and there are many areas to consider including: business planning, cash flow, regulatory compliance, policies and procedures etc. ASAS Business Solutions can provide guidance and coaching during the start up phase, help you to answer questions and find resources to support the early stages of your business journey. We work with you to understand your business, goals and to develop a business strategy which supports you  in delivering a compliant and successful business.

Business Development/Tender writing

Growing your business in a sustainable and planned way when you are stuck in the middle of operational delivery can be an almost impossible task. In addition, public tenders for NHS and Local Authority bodies is something most smaller providers have limited experience of and can be very daunting. ASAS Business Solutions has over 15 years experience of responding to both NHS and Local Authority tenders with an enviable track record of winning in this highly competitive market. We can support you through the SSQ (Standard Selection Questionnaire) and ITT (Invitation to Tender), and help with editing and writing of Method Statements.

Contract management
Once the tender has been won there is the contract negotiation phase and then the contract management of the new service. Engaging with the NHS and/or Local Authority body can be daunting for a new or smaller providers. It is important to get in place the correct systems and processes to manage the new contract and to engage with the commissioners. Having support from an experienced senior manager can reduce the initial difficulties and help you through the set up phase of the contract.

Management Restructure/Change Management
The Health and Social Care sectors continue to go through rapid change, and our organisations and management teams need to keep pace to ensure regulatory compliance and to remain competitive within this difficult market place. We need to continuously review our cost base, management team strengths and weaknesses, and implement change to ensure we keep that competitive edge. ASAS Business Solutions can support you in reviewing your teams, looking at the best management structure and then supporting you through the difficult process of change management.
