New service to help growing businesses

 {Video required}

Many entrepreneurs ask me time and again how they can reduce the red tape involved in running a business.

I’ve listened to what they’ve said and have now launched an online suite of business tools designed to take the pain out of vital business tasks for small-to-medium-size companies and start ups.

Users can access a range of services such as bookkeeping, business planning, payroll, health and safety, human resources support, marketing and sales as well as legal support.

The service, called “Peter Jones Business Builder,” will initially be available exclusively in all branches of PC World, the UK’s leading chain of computing superstores.

Customers simply use the service activation code included within the retail pack to unlock a wealth of business tools, support and advice, which will then be accessible online – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The service includes free telephone technical support and automatic live updates.

I’m delighted to launch this service with PC World because I speak to so many people who are either running their own business, or planning to start one, and the red tape and administration involved is a major factor holding them back.

The Peter Jones Business Builder service will help business owners to manage more effectively and allow them to focus on the challenges that really govern their success.

It will save time and money by bringing together a host of key business tools in one easy to access location online and now with distribution in PC World it gives the service an unrivalled retail presence.

The service will be available exclusively in PC World Stores from 17 October 2007 and be sold in a “DVD style” pack.

Three variants of the service will be available, offering either one month’s access at £17.99, three months’ access at £34.99, or 12 months’ access at £99.99. (inc. of VAT)

The service will be displayed in a stand alone unit in all of PC World’s 160 stores across the country.

For a limited time customers buying any computer from PC World will have the option of buying the Business Builder service for half price.
