On an ongoing basis Blue Sky provide and support NPA 24:7 with non-executive, accountancy, bookkeeping, pension and payroll services.

What are the key challenges in their market?

Following the MBO NPA 24:7 launched a brand new identity for the company, believing the new name and logo would better reflect their service offering. As with any re-branding exercise, the challenge is ensuring that potential customers are aware of the new brand name and associated services. In addition, NPA 24:7 have recently launched a business-to-consumer “new home emergency service” and awareness of this new service is fundamental to the growth ambitions of the business.

What are they getting right?

On a day-to-day basis Blue Sky has provided NPA 24:7 with a comprehensive bookkeeping and accountancy service, and have been able to suggest and implement process improvements that have helped improve efficiency within the business. In addition, through effectively managing and monitoring cash flow, Blue Sky have helped NPA 24:7 to operate in a strategic and proactive way and provided them the comfort and capabilities the business needed to grow the core business, invest in new initiatives and improve internal technology.

What’s new for 2016?

NPA 24:7 will continue to drive interest in the recently launched business-to-consumer “new home 24:7 emergency service” striving to ensure they provide homeowners with complete peace of mind that they are protected against any unexpected emergency repair bills once they are no longer covered by their house builder.
