Jim Merritt and Steve Sexton dreamed of owning their own business years before working together as contractors for the US Army. They shared their plans while supporting the Force Health Protection (FHP) Conference in August 2003. As the days passed and they formulated their ideas over beers at Maloney’s Tavern in Albuquerque, NM Jim and Steve could see the possibilities. Over the next several months, Jim and Steve planned the groundwork and on June 11, 2004, Bmore Technology, LLC became a reality, when they signed the paperwork at a local McDonald’s.
In those early days, the Bmore Technology server ran in Jim’s basement and random power and Internet outages added excitement and frustration. They continued to work their full-time day jobs and serviced their clients on nights and on weekends. Six years later, in 2010, Bmore Technology had grown to the point where its customers needed more attention. Jim and Steve decided to take the company to the next level, so Jim quit his job to start full-time for Bmore Technology.
After a year of running Bmore Technology out of Jim’s house, Jim and Steve agreed it was again time for a change and opened their first office when they subleased a 15’x15’ office from a client. After just a few short weeks in the new office, it was time to grow. On April 4, 2011, Bmore Technology officially hired its first employee, Jack, to help meet the demands of the expanding business. Jack’s responsibility was to assist clients so Jim and Steve could continue to grow Bmore Technology.
In September of 2011, Bmore Technology purchased a book of business from a former employer. This purchase doubled Bmore Technology’s client base overnight and allowed Steve to join the team full-time and work with Jim to create standard processes and grow Bmore Technology.
In April of 2012, Bmore Technology moved into the current office location at 7939 Honeygo Blvd. As the business grew, there was always a plan for Steve to move to South Carolina. In August of 2015, Steve and his family moved to Pawleys Island, SC. Not long after Bmore had its first clients in South Carolina. It was because of the expansion into South Carolina that Bmore Technology was adopted as our DBA name.
In December of 2018, Bmore Technology acquired Carolina Phone & Data Services (CPDS). CPDS was a Managed Service Provider started in 2005 and run by a husband-and-wife team. CPDS provided outsourced IT support to small and medium businesses in North and South Carolina. In October 2019, the South Carolina team moved into their current office space at 235 Commerce Drive.
After a yearlong delay due to the Coronavirus, Bmore Technology started the expansion of its headquarters in January 2021. The expansion doubled the size of the office and allowed the company to add a café, huddle room, and conference room.
We recently made the decision to switch IT companies and Bmore Technology offered everything we required. As with any large change, there was some apprehension involved. (more…)More Testimonials
