Boots blurs channel boundaries with online booking system

Health & beauty retailer Boots UK has said this week that its new online booking system, which allows customers to arrange appointments for services in its high street stores, is aiding the business's multichannel strategy. Using a cloud-based appointment system, customers can book in-store appointments for a range of services, such as pharmacist meetings for flu and travel vaccinations. The new service allows customers to pick an appointment time – from the following day up to three weeks in advance – online or on their mobile. Users can also amend their booking through the service and set up SMS and email reminders. Boots commissioned in-store customer experience tech solutions company Q-nomy to design the new system, while UK hosting provider Memset was selected to host the software across four stages: development, UAT testing, pre-production and production.

Hire and hold IT staff in 2015: The Reg's how-to guide

Employers beware – after years of relative inactivity, job seekers are gearing up for change. Economic improvements and an increase in business confidence have led to a burgeoning jobs market and an epidemic of itchy feet. While a certain amount of staff churn is inevitable – and even good – new research from IT recruiter Hays suggesting that 65 per cent of IT professionals expect to move jobs in the next 12 months has propelled IT staff recruitment and retention even higher up the corporate agenda as a sense of urgency, particularly among those employing niche skills in short supply - quite rightly sets in.

Guildford Lions Thank Public For Supporting Fireworks Fiesta

Once again on a perfect November 5th evening, thousands joined the torchlight procession from the High Street to Stoke Park to join a huge crowd, estimated at approx. 20,000, for our annual Guildford Lions Fireworks Fiesta. The vast crowd enjoyed a spectacular display which culminated in a magnificent finale funded by local IT company Memset Ltd. Guildford Lions organise the evening as a free to enter charity/community event relying on local sponsorship and public donations. Whilst the monies raised are still being counted we are confident a substantial donation will be made to two local charities (Oakleaf a mental health charity and Guildford Action supporting homeless people) as well as Guildford Lions Club’s own welfare fund.

Bonfire Night: firework display dazzles big Guildford crowd

A record crowd filled Stoke Park on Thursday night to watch the annual firework spectacular light up the clear skies of Guildford. Guildford Lions said they thought it was the largest crowd ever witnessed, with estimates of around 18,000 to 20,000 people of all ages enjoying the show. More than 1,000 torches were sold for the procession, which marched from the High Street to Stoke Park before the fireworks were set off at around 8.30pm. As well as the impressive firework show, there were fairground rides, games and food stalls to keep attendees entertained throughout the evening. Trevor Perry, one of the Guildford Lions who help to organise the event, said: "We were extremely pleased with it. The weather held out for us. "It was probably the best crowd we have had. We think about 18,000 to 20,000, the best crowd we have seen. "We are really pleased and are now just awaiting the result from the bucket collection donations." Mr Perry thanked all of the sponsors of the events, including Memset, Ewbank, Lloyds Bank Foundation, Big Yellow Self Storage, Dag Scaffolding, and its security team, Fidelis.
