swingSURE™, has partnered with utilities saving specialist Make it Cheaper to develop a package that will guarantee first year savings of at least £1,000 for qualifying businesses. The “Four Majors” package is a free service, created specifically for the golf industry to lower running costs and increase the bottom line.
The focus of the Four Majors package is to reduce the cost of gas/electricity, merchant services and phone/broadband, as well as provide a more comprehensive corporate insurance policy, under a single umbrella service.
swingSURE™, who recently signed Colin Montgomerie as their global brand ambassador, are offering a pledge to any golf club who use the free service to switch to lower cost suppliers that will save them a minimum of £1,000 in the first year.
Montgomerie sums up the Four Majors package by stating “Developed on the back of extensive research of the needs of the modern day golf business, our focus is to help you make your business better, combining the skills of the world’s largest privately owned insurance brokerage firm, and a market leading savings expert, that has already reduced UK business spending by over £250 million pounds, swingSURE™ will help you improve your bottom line, protect your business, and your reputation.”
To support the launch, a new web site – swingsure.co.uk – will form the hub for golf clubs to find out everything about the service and how it works, and then engage with swingSURE™. The site will also feature regular blogs, articles and a subscription based newsletters to keep the golf industry abreast of the latest cost saving initiatives, as well as tips and advice on keeping bills lower.
As part of the launch of the new swingSURE™ website, visitors who sign up to the swingSURE™ newsletter will receive a FREE 2014 golf industry Marketing Report from leading market research company Sports Marketing Surveys Inc.
swingSURE™ will continue to offer golf clubs a comprehensive set of insurance products, that includes Hole-in-One event prizes, weather protection, event cancellation policies and much more.
Roger Wolfe, co-founder of swingSURE™, said: “The swingSURE™ service is designed to meet the needs of the golf industry in the modern era. When many clubs are experiencing a decline in membership levels, it is important that they minimise costs wherever they can. Through our research, and in talking to many golf clubs and county golf unions, it became obvious that a simple and effective method to switch to lower cost suppliers was needed. By partnering with savings experts Make it Cheaper, our services do just that, by making it as simple as possible, requiring very little effort on the part of the golf club management team.”
Jonathan Elliott, Make it Cheaper CEO added “Golf clubs are, by their very nature, pretty big consumers of utilities. Their average annual spend on energy, for example, is £5,300. That’s where we come in. By finding better deals, we take a big chunk of that money and invest it back into the business via its bottom line. Once we have all the details, we can make sure they then stay on the best rates at each contract renewal going forward and look at different areas where we can help them make further savings. Thus we’re delighted to be working with swingSURE because our goals are very much aligned and we look forward to offering our services as a hassle-free added benefit to its clients”
