Minster – Pegasus & GDPR Event

GDPR is right around the corner and, as part of our on-going support, we want to help our customers to be as compliant as possible by the GDPR deadline date 25th May 2018

On Tuesday 16th January 2018, Minster have put together a GDPR seminar with Pegasus.

It will include legislative updates and important information about how you can get the most out of your Pegasus system to prepare for the big changes that will affect your business. 

Places to the event are very limited so, if you wish to attend, register your place here.

Rock & (Hot Pork) Roll Charity Night

Minster have organised a charity night to help raise as much money as possible for the SMS (Smith-Magenis Syndrome) UK charity.

 9 year old Sam Hunt is the son of Nick, one of Minster’s senior engineers. He has a rare genetic disorder called Smith-Magenis Syndrome. This causes intellectual, sleep and behavioural problems. As the condition is so rare, affecting 1 in 25,000 children, the charity often gets overlooked by mainstream fundraising so we can keen to help where we can. More information about the charity and the syndrome can be found at http://www.smith-magenis.co.uk/.

There will be entertainment from local band ‘The Spaffers’, hot pork & stuffing rolls as well as a raffle with some fantastic prizes generously donated by local companies. Tickets for the event are £10 each.

For tickets please call 01562 68211 or email maria.bull@minstermicro.co.uk.

Opera 3 Event – Get Started!

As you may be aware, the end is in sight for Opera II with Pegasus advising that they intend to make an ‘end of life’ announcement within the next 24 months.

With this in mind, Minster have organised an Opera 3 event to go through details of how you can save money by upgrading early as well as the benefits your business will gain.

As well as Opera II customers looking to upgrade, this event is also suitable for those who are looking for an overview on Opera 3 as well as those who currently use it and would like to hear about future developments.

This complimentary event will include a run through of the added features of Opera 3 from both the Minster Team and Pegasus’s Product Specialists Steve Power and Sue Flavell.

Business Expo Visitors Win Minster Micro Halloween Treats

Exhibiting with a host of other local businesses from across the two-counties, visitors to Minster Micro’s stand lined up to take turns and see if they had won a sour-tricky treat or a winning ticket for a bewitching Halloween beer, and get their hands on one of their distinctive, orange must-have Minster bags.

Minster’s Head of Marketing, Maria Burdett said: “We decided to run a competition and launch our new eco-friendly cotton bags at the show. Our bright orange bags went down a storm, especially with the recent carrier bag charges brought in this month. We spoke with lots of different businesses across many sectors and industries, so it really helped to break the ice by running our fun Halloween competition giveaway.”

“Well done and congratulations to all our Halloween-treat winners and thank you to every new Minster bag owner who took the time to visit us on our stand.”

H&W Chamber Of Commerce Expo

After the success from the last Chamber expo we attended, we have decided to exhibit there again at the October Business Exhibition.

Held at the spacious Three Counties Showground, there is an expected number of 800 visitors attending (and counting!). We feel this is a great opportunity to meet new people, introduce ourselves to local companies across the region as well as showcase our expanding portfolio of offerings, including SAP Business One, Pegasus Opera 3 and our VOIP telephony product from 3CX.

As this event is held in the month of Halloween, we will also be playing trick or treat so come and say hi (or should we say ‘boo!) at our stand!

Whether you are a current customer or are looking at seeing what Minster and other local companies have to offer, we would love to see you there!

Please note, as this event isn’t held at the Minster offices, there is no need to register your attendance with us. For more information on the exhibition, please contact us.

Fantastic Networking At Minster with Made In The Midlands

As part of our membership with Made in the Midlands, we were given the opportunity to host the first breakfast networking event of 2015.

Made In The Midlands Breakfast Event

The event was held at our offices in Kidderminster and 15 manufacturing companies joined us. All were given the chance to do a 60 second pitch, giving them the opportunity to introduce themselves, the company they are representing and what they are hoping to get out of both Made in the Midlands and the meeting itself.

60 Second Pitches

This key networking event was the perfect occasion for both new and old members to come together, discuss the industry as well as give advice and support in regards to any issues that they can relate to.

As it was our first event with Made in the Midlands, we were keen to find out how the attendees found the morning. We found that all of the anonymous responses from our survey were positive, with people commenting on the great location with relaxed atmosphere. One individual response came with an added comment:

‘The Minster team came across as a lovely, warm group of people ‘.

We were very proud to host this successful event and are keen to plan others this year. Watch this space!

H&W Chamber of Commerce Spring Business Exhibition

After the success from the last Chamber expo we went to, we have decided to exhibit there again at the Spring Business Exhibition.

Held at the spacious Three Counties Showground, there is an expected number of 800 visitors attending (and counting!). We feel this is a great opportunity to meet new people, introduce ourselves to local companies across the region as well as showcase our expanding portfolio of offerings, including SAP Business One, Pegasus Opera 3 and our VOIP telephony product from 3CX. Also, due to the time of the year, we are also going to be offering out advice and solutions for your payroll.

Whether you are a current customer or are looking at seeing what Minster and other local companies have to offer, we would love to see you there!

Please note, as this event isn’t held at the Minster offices, there is no need to register your attendance with us. For more information on the exhibition, please contact us.

 

Proud To Be A Made In The Midlands Member

untitledMinster are very happy to announce that we are now a member of Made In The Midlands.

As part of our on-going growth, we have taken the decision to join MIM as we feel we are ready to enhance our networking arena and engage with other manufacturing companies within our locale.

We have many customers in the manufacturing industry and feel that we have plenty of knowledge and a wealth of experience in servicing this sector. However, we are always ready to learn more and meet new manufacturers on our doorstep.

We have been keen to be part of Made in the Midlands for a while but as we are not a manufacturing company, we had to go through a process which meant that they had to decide whether we are a suitable and worthy company. After a few meetings we were offered membership and are excited to be joining and taking advantage of this opportunity.

We will be hosting the first Breakfast Meeting of 2015 at our offices and are looking forward to both attending and hosting others. We are also ready to exhibit at the Made in the Midlands Annual Expo in May and will be looking forward to meeting other members and patrons.
