The United Kingdom offers with its population of over 64 million a huge market with strong potential and premium pricing. In spite of Brexit, it remains one of the most interesting markets in Europe, with easy access, a good logistical network, a strong financial sector and highly innovative industry, high level of professionalism and a clear, yet easy to understand business culture, where it is easy to set up a business.

  1. Service offer

The service provider prepares a service offer, it also includes prices. Later on we send you the offer and inform you about potential tenders for companies in relevant areas (SPIRIT Slovenia). When (if) the offer is confirmed, we organize the initial call/ meeting with the service provider.

  1. Briefing with the service provider

We organize the call or meeting between you and service provider. The purpose of the meeting is to establish a connection between the service provider and company and to get more information about the process of the service.

  1. Service execution

Service provider prepares the agreed service during which is in a constant contact with you. We strongly believe that the feedback process is the key towards successful conclusion of the business.

  1. Feedback

Feedback should be present at all times of the process, but despite that, we will encourage you to meet us and the service provider at the end of the process and discuss the process as a whole and possible improvements.
