Even during ‘lockdown’ we’ve been delighted to welcome two new customers to Disc, as well as help a number of existing customers to upgrade to our new Disc SC system.

Bournemouth Coastal BID decided to adopt Disc after a lockdown ‘Zoom’ session at the end of May.

“One positive that has come out of the lockdown” says Littoralis’ Charlie Newman “is that business has started to be conducted virtually  – I’m sure more and more will be conducted this way in the future”.

Bournemouth Coastal BID is one of just six ‘tourism’ BIDs in the UK, covering a large section of the Dorset coast, and a wide range of levy-payers including retailers, licensees, restaurants, hotels and guesthouses, attractions, and seafront traders as well as offices and other commercial properties. Not surprisingly with such a diverse profile, the BID opted to implement our new Disc SC variant.

Disc SC has already been well received by existing Disc customers.  Sheffield Business Crime Partnership, and Bristol Broadmead and Bristol City Centre BIDs have upgraded their existing Disc systems to Disc SC, and Maidsafe Business Crime Reduction Partnership covering the Maidstone area of Kent, working with OneMaidstone BID in Kent, have also chosen Disc SC.

Welcome too, to another new Disc implementation: Oakengates Shopwatch near Telford in Shropshire.  The system will be running alongside, and linked with,  three established Disc systems in the area covering Telford Shopwatch, Telford Pubwatch and Wellington Shopwatch.
