Two Exeter based businesses; Managed Service Provider Bluegrass Group and Procurement Consultancy BCR Associates have come together to expand their offering of communication and IT support to new and existing clients across the UK.
BCR Associates is a procurement consultancy that works with businesses to increase efficiency, rationalise business costs and mitigate risk. They were looking to partner with a supplier that would enable them to expand their offering of services to their clients in step with the level of technical knowledge and systems know-how that is vital in today’s climate
‘We’ve noticed a growing trend in businesses looking to amalgamate their supplier list in order to achieve increased convenience and a deeper level of understanding and trust with a few set partners. Having known and worked with Bluegrass Group for many years, they were the clear front runner when it came to choosing an IT and communications company to partner with.
Their UK wide service offering which incorporates general day to day IT support, 24/7/365, plus VoIP, Internet Connectivity and Cyber Security services means our clients can now enjoy expert and around the clock support across these business essential services.
It’s also the Bluegrass Group culture and service ethos that makes this partnership so great. They completely echo our own open, honest and friendly team culture and put client service first, which was key to our decision.’ Steve, Bolt, Director, BCR Associates.
David Thomas, Joint Managing Director, Bluegrass Group comments ‘This is an exciting partnership for us as having known the team at BCR for a number of years, we already have a strong level of trust and respect for each other. Being able to support their clients with our technology services and 24/7/365 support means we increase our reach across the UK, but also, we can provide complete confidence to a local company that their clients are in good hands. We’ve witnessed how important technology has become to businesses over the last 12 months so the opportunity to support their clients with an IT provision alongside the services BCR offer is going to enable them to get on with what they do best and grow their business.
As a company that delivers technology solutions, we’re looking forward to expanding our offering to cover the full spectrum of cost reduction services including energy. This is an increasingly technical area, particularly when considering the level of analysis required to achieve Net Zero targets. It’s an exciting time all round!’
