BFC Networks were founded in 2009 as part of a joint venture to host the Learning Gateway Conference at the Belfry in Birmingham, UK and then again in 2010. In 2011 they started fully trading offering consultancy in the SharePoint and education industry.
Known as BFC to their customers, they offer custom solutions to schools, academies, councils and academy trusts on Microsoft technologies.
Since Microsoft announced the free offering of Office 365 for education, they have deployed their customised solution to over 250 schools across the UK helping the teaching and learning of thousands of students.
BFC Networks are always on the cutting edge of technology and always looking at how other industry wide products can be used with Microsoft solutions such as Moodle and mobile devices. You will soon see new and exciting products coming out that will allow you to connect to SharePoint and only be 1 click or one figure swipe away from getting the information you require.
BFC Networks are very proud of the relationship they have with Microsoft which allows them to understand future changes to products and features. With Microsoft cloud technologies always being updated, it is important to have a supplier/partner who understand these changes, how they affect you and any custom solutions you may have.
BFC Networks have been awarded Microsoft Cloud Essentials for the technical knowledge and delivery of cloud solutions.
