#O2SmartaBiz winner: First Response Supplies

First Response 1 

Proposition: One sentence explanation of what your business is

First Response Supplies is a one stop shop for all medical, paramedic and first aid supplies whether you are a professional medic or B2B.

Why are you a smart business?

We are truly ecommerce only – no sales team, no catalogues – a rarity in our sector. This allows our cost base to be low which is reflected in our pricing but by using social media we can continue to be responsive to customer needs.

What’s the smartest thing you’ve done to help your business grow?

We developed our business model by enrolling on the East Midlands Development Agency High Growth Scheme working with mentors and other like minded companies.

We have also recruited a fantastic supply chain from within Europe and the Far East.

What smart things do you do for your customers?

We live, breathe and eat our business every day its not enough to go the extra mile.

What smart technologies do you use to run your business?

Our Ecommerce shop is Magento which is constantly developing and exceeding our expectations.  Extensions are being developed all the time which make the store “say” more to our customers and “do” more for us.

What’s your smartest tip for other entrepreneurs?

Carpe Diem!!
