"Streets SPW PLC is a firm of Accountants and Insolvency practitioners. We have offices in North and Central London.
We are expanding our insolvency operation and wanted to speed up the lead generation process. As our work comes in usually as a result of referrals from accountants and solicitors, it was our intention to achieve this growth by introducing our Factoring Helpline (headed up by myself Richard Sorsky, Director) to both our existing clients as well as setting up new alliances with Accountancy and legal practises. What we needed were appointments with partnerships who matched our requirements
The Appointments Company was introduced to the company by one of our Partners, Stella Davis. We got on well with The Appointments Company right from the start; they understood what we were trying to achieve and were quickly able to set up a number of meetings for me.
This is a long turn project so we were expecting a slow build but we have had business already as a result of the appointments, and I’m pleased to say the costs for the first part of the campaign have already been covered.
The online reporting system is straight forward and easy to use but as I’m out of the office a good deal of the time The Appointments Company were happy to modify their system to accommodate me and now send notifications by email straight to my smart phone so I don’t have to log on to the online docs.
All in all our relationship with The Appointments Company has been a positive one and I’m delighted to have them as part of my team."
Richard Sorsky - Director
"I began using The Appointments Company in 2011. Initially for Bridge Recovery, Jon’s team researched and built a database of accountants across Beds, Herts, Bucks and Cambs. Very quickly they presented an average of 4 productive appointments a week, a level which was cost-effectively maintained.
Once this arrangement was in place I was able to leave things to Jon’s team. The Appointments Company made the appointments, kept the records up to date, notified us of any prospects requiring information sent by email and managed the diary entries.
The system worked so well that when I moved to Leonard Curtis, a much larger ‘business recovery’ firm I had no hesitation in bringing The Appointments Company in to help us develop our network of contacts and referrals.
What I like about The Appointments Company is the ease of communication; they are easy to work with, flexible and have gone to great lengths to produce exactly what I’ve wanted from a campaign.
Whilst my role has recently changed to one of consultancy, The Appointments Company continue to work for Leonard Curtis and I will very soon have them working for me again, at The Chancery Partnership.
Doing what they do so well, making appointments!
I am more than happy to recommend The Appointments Company."
Matt Evans - The Chancery Partnership
"Jon and his team have been a great help to us. Making calls isn't what we do best, but it's an important part of any businesses marketing. Rather than just taking a list and calling everyone on it, Jon took the time to find out about our business and the approach that we had in other areas of our marketing and we worked together to create a telesales strategy.
It was refreshing knowing that we could leave this important part of our marketing to a company that wanted to work with us rather than tell us how they were going to do it with no input from ourselves or concern for our brand message.
I'm sure that we'll work with the team at The Appointments Company again in the not to distant future."

"Jon’s knowledge and enthusiasm for developing your business is infectious, inspirational, extremely personable and professional. Since I have known Jon I have been keen to engage his support in my business development in a number of ways, and know that he will play a vital role in my ongoing business success, with his objective yet understanding approach to marketing. I highly recommend anyone to spend an hour with Jon to find out how he will help you and your business go to the next level."

"I just thought I would like to let you know that I have been impressed with the way your company approaches telemarketing for my business. I especially like the way you keep your clients (me) up to date which is not something I have been used to with telemarketing companies over the last 6 years. The manner in which I can update my diary for you is very easy. That I can also see how you are progressing with the contacts list is just great. The collaborative way you work with us is first class especially when you let me know when you need a written contact with the prospective client and I can send them some details. I am sure that this makes the whole process so much more effective."
Robert Harris - AIMS Accountants for Business
"I'd like to take a few moments to say thanks to you and your staff for a well conducted telemarketing project. The results were beyond expectations. We were particularly impressed with the way you kept us informed and we also found the online reporting system easy to use. Thanks again for all your help.Needless to say we look forward to working with you again very soon."

"Today, information overload means your advertising is ignored; your e-mails are deleted without being read and your literature gets binned without being opened. The great thing about The Appointment Company is that they speak directly to named contacts, person-to-person, on your behalf which cannot fail to get your message across despite the cacophony of noise in the marketplace. How could any enterprise pass up that opportunity and still believe they are at their most effective when seeking new clients?"
Paul Hayward - Business Coaching for the Professions
"I am very impressed with the preparation the Appointments Company puts in before taking on a project. Jon Hillier works at extracting all possible selling points from his clients and sees appointments calls as an integral part of the sales process, not just a numbers game. Even if a business does not give an appointment immediately because the time is not right for them, they will be left with a very positive experience and view of Jon's clients."
