Located in Coventry, England, the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is the only organisation that represents and protects the interests of builders merchants, plumbing, heating, roofing, decorative and timber merchants and their suppliers. An iMIS client since 2016, the federation is the authoritative voice for the building materials distribution sector, providing training and development, business support, access to market data, networking opportunities and political representation. BMF's 340 merchant members operate in more than 5,000 branches across the United Kingdom.

“Before using iMIS, we had lots of data silos. Bringing everything together has created a number of immediate efficiencies, including a central repository for data, lower data security risks, and more effective/faster information sharing.”
