BIDBase is a powerful online database system designed specifically for UK Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) with BID management tools to help BIDs get the most out of their data and manage the daily operations of a successful BID.

The Wisdom Factory CIC designed and developed this product based on our own experiences working in the industry, with an understanding of the invaluable role that accurate and meaningful data plays. BIDBase was designed to help us do our jobs more efficiently and effectively. We’re therefore making it available to all BID managers, BID teams and BID directors to use.

Whether you’re pre-BID, just starting your BID term or are approaching renewal ballot, you need to know the vital information about your levy-payers: who they are, how they interact with your BID and what you’re doing for them. Importantly, you need to be able to evidence all that. BIDBase does all these things and more.

BIDBase launched in January 2017 and has been very successful, capturing about 10% of the UK BID market within a year. Version 2.2 came out in October 2018 and the product garners praise from BIDs of all sizes and kinds across the country. BIDBase has emerged from the disaster that was 2020 in pretty good shape, with a similar-sized client base and the prospect of launching the excellent improvements to the system in BIDBase 3.0 in the spring of 2021.

BIDBase has been joined by BIDBase Street Ops, a mobile-only version designed for work outside by rangers, wardens etc. and BIDBase Locally, designed for business users operating inside a Business Crime Reduction Partnership and/or loyalty card scheme via BIDBase.
