Difficult times: how payroll solutions can help

Over the next few months, lots of businesses must expect to make hard choices in order to continue to make a profit and grow in a harsh climate. Why, then, would a small business consider taking on a payroll company at a time when cost cutting is the name of the game?
1. Improved efficiency. Small businesses usually work with the minimum number of staff required to get the job done. Handing over the complex, essential task of managing payroll to an experienced provider frees the staff to focus on making your business work for you.
2. Money saving. Despite the general impression that payroll solutions are an expensive luxury, any company with 10 or more employees will save enough man hours to make the service pay for itself.
3. Freedom to choose. At Moorepay, we’re well aware that the needs of small businesses vary greatly from one to another and we’ll tailor the service to suit your budget and payroll needs. You can choose from the provision of online payroll software up to fully managed payroll services.
4. Saving you time. Time is an essential commodity in any business and there are rarely enough hours in the day. Handing over the payroll reins means you can achieve more in your working day, increasing the chances of your business continuing to grow.
5. Less pressure. The penalties for incorrect tax submissions, for example, are high, and ensuring you are up to date with tax legislation can be one pressure too many at an already difficult time. Allowing experts to handle this one for you frees you up to focus on the efficiency of your own business.
In difficult times, choosing your investments wisely is critical. A tailored payroll solution will save you time and unnecessary costs, helping you focus on the growth and success of your business.

Shop fittings can improve sales

Today, the high street is filled with a myriad of wonderful shops, all competing for business. If you want to ensure your shop sticks out and attracts more customers than the rest, you will need to make sure that your premises is attractive to passers by. In order to do this, you will need to do two things; sell good quality products, and use only the best shop fittings you can afford.
Decent shop fittings can make all the difference in today’s competitive market. If your shop looks good and is well equipped, customers will have more confidence in you and your products. They will expect a well maintained shop to offer excellent service and desirable items, and so will be more likely to choose your shop over others in the same market.
Shop fitting can be a difficult task. It is advisable that you seek the help of experienced shop fitters, especially if you are new to the retail trade and have never refurbished a store before. By seeking the advice of professionals, you can ensure that the most is made of your floorspace. Shop fitters will help you design the perfect layout for your shop, as well advising you on the best fittings for your needs. They will also install any hardware such as shelving, counters and display cases. It is important that all of your fixtures and fittings are safe and secure, in order to avoid any accidents or injuries. It is also important that your fixtures and fittings look good and will appear attractive to your target group of customers and passers by alike.
At Morplan, we offer a huge range of top quality shop fittings to suit various budgets. Whether you are looking for a suitable jewellery case to showcase your wares, or some nice coat hangers on which to display your clothing range, we can help you find the perfect solution.

Mannequin Displays

One of the simplest ways to attract more customers into your shop is to create a great window display. After all, the window of your store will be the first thing customers see when in its vicinity. A good shop front will make the customer pay attention and encourage them to visit your store, whereas a bad one will not hold their interest – they will probably pass by without a second thought.
Using mannequins to create a window display is a very effective way of engaging potential customers. As mannequins are made to resemble humans, it is easy to style them in such a way that your customers can identify with them and picture themselves in the clothes the mannequins are dressed with.
No matter what you sell, it is possible to use mannequins to advertise your wares. For example, a shop selling beach wear could create an effective display by turning their window into a beach, complete with sand, beach towels, a bucket and spade and mannequins dressed in their most popular clothing. By placing the mannequins in dynamic positions, it will be easy for the customer to identify with them and see themselves wearing the clothing whilst having fun on the beach.
Perfecting the body language of your mannequins is essential. Nobody will be inspired by a mannequin if it is striking a passive pose. It is essential your mannequin is dynamic and life like, as this will draw much more attention and inspire your customers more than a boringly posed mannequin ever could.
Here at Morplan, we stock an extensive range of busts and mannequins which are perfect for creating exciting window displays. Our flexible mannequins are particularly popular as they allow window dressers to create the kind of dynamic poses that will draw customers to your store.

The benefits of paper bags

Most retail businesses today tend to give their customers plastic bags to carry their purchases and, although plastic bags provide a good solution, paper bags are equally as good, if not better, when it comes to carrying purchases from the store, back to your home. Below are some of the many benefits of using paper bags.
One of the best reasons to use paper bags is they have a lesser impact on the environment than plastic bags. Plastic bags contain toxic chemicals and do not break down easily when they are disposed of, whereas paper bags contain no harsh chemicals and will erode much more quickly.
In the retail business, it is important to keep your overheads as low as possible, and paper bags are a cost efficient product. Paper bags can be a more affordable option.
If your shop sells products that are popular with children, it is worth considering using paper bags rather than plastic. The reason for this is a simple one; plastic bags can cause suffocation, whereas paper bags do not so many parents feel more comfortable with their children carrying items in paper bags.
Paper bags are highly durable, too. A good quality paper bag will be just as strong as a plastic one. It will resist rain and keep its shape. Many people wrongly assume that paper bags will break easily, but in fact, they are less likely to get a hole in them than a plastic bag is.
Paper bags can be fashionable, these days, partly due to the rising trend for green, eco friendly products and partly because they can be made to look much more attractive and refined than plastic bags. Consider all the high end shops who use paper bags rather than plastic; they have realised the potential such bags have.
Here at Morplan, we stock a wide range of paper carrier bags, in many colours. We also stock plastic and fabric bags too.
