The Evolution of B-OSS
Throughout her work with independent businesses, Liz realised that a common point of frustration for business owners was needing recommendations for a great accountant / graphic designer / printer / VA etc etc.
There are several of these Trusted Business sites for tradies, but none dedicated to helping independent businesses such as start-ups, small businesses and mumpreneurs.
B-OSS seeks to fill this gap and help these businesses to be as successful as possible. At the moment, we are showcasing only Perth-based businesses but aim to extend to other locations as we evolve.
How do we pick our featured business providers?
As the site's main raison d'être is to showcase trusted, reliable and quality businesses and entrepreneurs that independent businesses rely on, it is of utmost importance to ensure the integrity of the businesses that we showcase.
Each of our featured businesses has to provide:
- A copy of their Certificate of Currency
- At least three recommendations from previous clients / customers (which we also verify)
- Proof of any relevant qualifications or ticket
If we receive a complaint regarding any of our featured businesses, this will be taken very seriously and immediately investigated, possibly leading to termination of their partnership with B-OSS.
