CMI - A BCN Group Company


Monday 3rd April 2023: At BCN Group, we’re excited to announce the acquisition of NewCMI, a leading MSP and Microsoft Solutions partner. This strategic move reinforces our Microsoft-first approach, building a complementary technology offering across the Microsoft ecosystem. The acquisition also brings a strategic foothold in the South East of England and Northern Ireland for BCN.

BCN is a leading digital transformation solutions and managed service provider delivering cloud-first data strategies, including Microsoft Modern Workplace, Microsoft Azure, Azure optimisation and analytics, Full Stack development, PowerPlatform, BI Data Analytics Solutions, Dynamics 365 Business Central, and cyber security services.

Offering a complementary product set to BCN as specialists in Microsoft Modern Workplace, Microsoft Azure, cyber security and managed IT, the acquisition will bolster BCN’s portfolio and expand its UK base, which currently sits at 1,200.

This is the second acquisition since ECI Partners invested in BCN in 2022, following on from the purchase of Microsoft Dynamics 365 specialists, Evo-soft, in September 2022.

Rob Davies, CEO of BCN Group commented: “CMI’s complimentary product and service offering allows us to increase our Microsoft customer base and strengthen our team of technical experts. Importantly, the acquisition means we can take our combined technical capability to the next level, further establishing BCN as a key player among UK Managed Service Providers.”
