BMF

Open ECX Joins Builders Merchants Federation

Last Updated by openecx-admin

Open ECX is proud to announce that we have joined more than 600 companies across the UK in becoming members of the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF).

The BMF is the active hub of merchant and supplier activity in the UK, working closely with allied industry groups and regulatory bodies such as trading standards and planning departments, to ensure that issues affecting member merchants and suppliers are tackled promptly and effectively. The BMF is an active lobbyist with local and central government in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and has an impressive track record of achievements.

Matthew Jones, CEO of Open ECX, said: “We made the decision to become members of the BMF as we are increasingly being asked to provide electronic trading solutions to UK merchants and their suppliers. “We’ve found that these businesses are often swamped with paperwork, processing mountains of invoices and purchase orders each and every week, are looking at ways to make efficiencies wherever possible. “By joining the BMF we will be able to better understand the wider issues merchants and their suppliers are facing and be able to tailor our solutions to overcome these challenges.”

Readie Construction, a £150M turnover business, which specialises in new and refurbishment industrial, retail and commercial projects, plan to use WebContractor to help support the continued growth of their business.

After attending the successful event that we hosted at Canary Wharf earlier in the year, Jessica McCarthy, the newly appointed Finance Director, and Lee Chalk, Head of Commercial, reviewed WebContractor, and quickly recognised that the system would help provide the transparency and control that is required to manage their projects effectively. Readie Construction has quickly established an enviable reputation in the industry, and they acknowledge that WebContractor will help in facilitating good relationships with their subcontractors, whilst providing the internal control they require, as they continue to grow. We look forward to working with them.
