Building-services industry backs new online and e-mail information service

Published:  06 November, 2008

A new e-mail and online business information service for building-services companies has received enthusiastic support from the industry.

Called einsidetrack, the service will deliver a wide range of business information of specific relevance to the building-services industry direct to subscribers’ e-mail inboxes. The first edition contains updates about material prices, legislation, legal matters, sustainability, technology and market developments that have a direct impact on firms in the sector.

The Heating & Ventilating Contractors’ Association has purchased subscriptions on behalf of its 1400 member companies — all of which will receive einsidetrack free of charge. The free subscription is worth up to £300 a year.

Robert Higgs, chief executive of HVCA, says, ‘The einsidetrack newsletter is designed to assist senior managers across the sector to stay abreast of the key issues, and so ensure they understand the threats and opportunities that inevitably exist in an ever-changing commercial and economic environment. We believe that einsidetrack will help to ensure that our members are aware of the really big issues and the implications for their business.’

The newsletter has also received support from the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA), the ICOM Energy Association and the Association for Consultancy & Engineering (ACE).

Terry Seward, commercial manager of FETA, says, ‘We are encouraging our members to take advantage of this timely and targeted service. There is an absolute avalanche of information out there, and most managers in our sector struggle to keep track of it all. As well as being an excellent early-warning service, einsidetrack could also be a real timesaver.

The service is the brainchild of Rowan Crowley, formerly publishing director of H&V News. He says, ‘With so much information surrounding all aspects of the industry these days, this service has been designed to be of direct relevance to the day-to-day operation of a building-services company. Our service is designed not to compete with any other sources of information already available to the market. It will alert subscribers to specific issues and the need for action, monitoring developments and directing them to the best sources of further help.
