BCM Ltd has achieved their fourth Business All-Star Accreditation in a row from the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

The Accreditation is an outstanding achievement for BCM Ltd as it illustrates they have maintained their high standards in providing a best in class service to their customers since they were first accredited four years ago.

Business All-Star accredited companies are defined as; progressive, indigenous Irish businesses which meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer-centricity.

This is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

We are delighted for 2 reasons to receive this accolade – firstly, it is always really great, and very flattering of course, to have independent acknowledgement of your efforts as an organisation. Secondly, but more importantly however, it really helps to spread the message of the value of being involved in eTendering as a way to accredit and receive business, says John Macnamara, CEO of BCM Limited.

He continues: “Most businesses work really hard to get sales meetings and to get the opportunity to provide quotations for their products and services – with eTenders, business opportunities, to do exactly that, arrive in your inbox every day! If this Accreditation does nothing else other than publicise this message, then BCM would be very happy indeed”.

Kieran Ring, Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board said in support of the announcement: “This certificate verifies that BCM Limited has achieved AIBF All-Star ETendering Service Provider 2021. The Accreditation is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to the ETendering community. Furthermore, we wish to recognise BCM Limited’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. BCM Limited is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for a fourth successive year.”

Dr Hynes said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 450 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics”, she says.

BCM increases the profitability of companies by either reducing the cost of supplies and overheads (for medium to large sized businesses) or by growing revenues (micro to sme sized businesses). Profits are often lost in overhead cost categories and BCM experts are very proficient at uncovering non-competitive rates, supplier overcharges, waste, lack of control, process improvements, etc.

BCM are proficient at growing revenues as many businesses ‘get stuck’ at a certain size and find it difficult to jump to the next level of growth – BCM will help you bridge that gap. BCM also works primarily on a unique No Results, No Charge basis thus making it very attractive for clients to engage with BCM. BCM are franchising experts having franchised their own business internationally over the last 25+ years.

The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. The Foundation also oversees the All-Ireland Business Summit while promoting peer dialogue amongst our members on an ongoing basis.
