Bringing Internet Solutions to Massachusetts as an Approved Statewide Vendor
BEI Networks a Massachusetts Statewide Vendor
As a Massachusetts Statewide Vendor, BEI Networks adheres to a range of high-standards regarding our service offerings. BEI also attends annual events to network with both peers and potential partners to further understand the ever-changing business environment of Massachusetts. Last year, BEI was present at the MassBuys Expo and spoke at the MA Supplier Diversity Series at Massasoit Community College.
The MassBuys Expo is hosted by the Operational Services Division (OSD) to promote businesses and vendors in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Schools, museums, and organizations attend the tradeshow to meet one-on-one, or briefly interact on the exhibit floor, with state-approved vendors specializing in a range of services. BEI will once again have a presence at the MassBuys Expo this year on April 27 at Gillette Stadium.
BEI is also proud to be a woman-owned business and shared this experience at the MA Supplier Diversity Series (The Series) last November. BEI CEO, Darby Bruno, discussed how being a Massachusetts Statewide Contract Holder allows her to connect with diverse suppliers to fulfill BEI’s diversity spend commitment. Statewide Contract Holders have had trouble in the past meeting this requirement, and as a company that successfully hires diverse suppliers on an annual basis, BEI was asked to provide guidance to the group.
Attendees of The Series included small-business owners, diverse suppliers, Statewide Contract Holders, representatives from select corporate companies, and members of the Massachusetts government. Darby Bruno spoke from the perspective of a statewide service provider to both vendors and diverse suppliers. Events, such as The Series, allow BEI to not only share their business ethics with others in the field, but also provide a chance for the woman-owned business to promote diversity at the management level.
BEI intends to continue to serve the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an exceptional solutions provider and Statewide Contract Holder in 2017.
