New website heralds shift to digital approach for NMBS – Builders Merchants Journal

The National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS) has launched a brand new website as part of a broader investment in digital services for its members.

The new website is part of a program of work to improve and develop the technology used within NMBS to maintain and grow the valuable service the society provides to its members and suppliers.

The website provides a more user-focused online experience and brings together all the information and resources members need in one easily accessible location with a much improved structure and design. The website allows members to keep up to date with NMBS and supplier news and hot topics, learn about upcoming NMBS events, and access secure areas where they can view their account and sales data.

A key benefit for NMBS members is the company’s online buyer’s guide, which makes access to this essential tool quicker and easier for members and eliminates the need for s press on a traditional printed version. This means members can find what they’re looking for faster and access the information they need wherever they are.

Chris Hayward, Managing Director of NMBS, said: “Our investment in the new NMBS website reflects our broader decision to take an increasingly digital approach to our business. We believe that by investing in our digital infrastructure, we can make life easier for our members and suppliers. And in a world where the preference for digital engagement is rapidly becoming the norm in so many aspects of our lives, it only makes sense for NMBS to look to the future and ensure we are ready to meet the needs and to the changing expectations of our members.

“Phasing out a paper-based approach to our marketing and member service activities also has clear benefits for the environment. As good environmental practices and an emphasis on sustainability become increasingly important priorities in the industry, we recognize that we have a responsibility at NMBS to seize every opportunity to limit our own environmental impact.
