Head office in Coventry, Warwickshire

The Builders Merchants Federation is the only organisation that represents and protects the interests of Merchants and Suppliers to the merchanting industry. The BMF has over 450 members ranging from small companies to national groups.

Following BMF’s relocation to Coventry and an upsurge in membership the organisation recognised the need to update its IT systems. Air IT won the contract for the systems upgrade and to provide ongoing managed support to the organisation. Air IT implemented Microsoft Office 365 and migrated the existing email and data to the new platform. A small server was also installed on premise to run the accounts software application and provide local file and print services.

Builders Merchants Federation

Our existing IT systems were old, unreliable, and in desperate need of updating. Out of the various IT companies we spoke with Air IT were the only one that put forward a new way of working using a combination of on-premise and Cloud-based systems. Their solution was much more cost-effective than the other proposals we’d received and keeps us up to date. Working with Air IT is easy and hassle-free. I definitely recommend Air IT to any business looking for help with their IT.
