BMF launches IT Solutions Plus to overcome merchants’ top 3 IT challenges

The Builders Merchants Federation’s (BMF) is launching BMF IT Solutions Plus to help its members to utilise digital technology to enhance their service and improve productivity.

Working in partnership with Phoenix Software, the new service offers enterprise IT at SME prices and addresses the top three IT challenges identified in a recent BMF survey. The main issues reported in the survey were keeping up to date with current IT software versions and retaining compatibility, the provision of 24/7 access and mobility, and renewing old hardware.

BMF IT Solutions Plus is a Cloud-based service that provides user companies with access to the latest technology and software, eliminates the risks associated with managing site-based IT infrastructure and provides 24/7 support.

The service is designed to improve productivity across the business, enabling teams to collaborate wherever they are.  Software can be accessed 24/7 via PC, Mac, tablet or phone, with built in security to protect sensitive data 

Richard Ellithorne, BMF membership Services Director said: “One of the most comprehensive ways of addressing all three challenges identified by merchants is to consider moving to Microsoft Cloud. To introduce our new IT Solutions Plus service, our partners, Phoenix Software, are offering BMF members a free, no obligation, Cloud Assessment to review how it may help their business.”
