Grab a Gardener – the online marketplace connecting you to the best local gardeners

GrabaGardener.com is the UK’s leading platform for customers to book and pay securely online for a trusted and experienced, vetted gardener. Customers can choose a date and time that suits them and pay a flat hourly rate for all garden maintenance services. After a successful launch in Berkshire in April 2016 Grab a Gardener quickly expanded across the South of England and now offer all garden services from technical garden design to landscaping projects.

ShareDining – removes barriers to entry for food businesses by helping them access flexible, affordable commercial kitchen space

One of the biggest problems facing the 50,000 new food businesses each year is access to commercial kitchen space. ShareDining helps solve this problem by giving food businesses access to unused kitchen capacity in venues such as restaurants, bars, cafes and schools. User businesses get access to flexible, affordable, on-demand commercial kitchen space and host businesses access an additional revenue stream.

Unified Technologies – the on-demand mobile Guest Experience Management (GEM) platform for the entire hotel operation.

Unified is a mobile first Guest Experience Management (GEM) platform for the entire hotel operation. The Unified turnkey solution provides guests with personalised on-demand service that can be accessed anytime, anyplace across a hotel. Unified ensures the nearest available staff member will fulfil the request so a guest is never kept waiting.

Unified provides real-time visibility of employees and connects guest requests to staff across the entire property. A robust analytics suite visualises service performance metrics and guest-centric insights at a granular level, providing hotel management with a Unified view of guest and staff interactions across the property(s).
