    We Are Listening


    BRM Value Survey – UPDATE!

    Ireland meeting 2.jpg

    In June 2018, BMC conducted a pilot survey of our SaaS customers to determine how you perceive the value of the Business Relationship Manager role, and how it should evolve to meet your changing demands. We listened and are taking the feedback seriously – and we’re ready to begin sending out the survey to all of our SaaS customers (as long as you *opted in to receive emails from Remedyforce!). As a result of these pilot surveys, as well as feedback collected through other means such as service reviews, our Ease of Doing Business surveys and via our Community – we are already making a number of changes in the next coming weeks and months.

    Surveying our customers is one of many BRM initiatives that are underway for the rest of the year and into next, to help improve your experience with Remedyforce. Here’s a great picture of the Remedyforce BRM Team Leaders (and the Remedy as a Service Business Relationship Managers) that got together a couple weeks ago in Kilkenny, Ireland to collaborate and begin executing on those improvement initiatives.

    Check back here next month where I’ll be providing more results and updates as a result of our approach of:  “we asked you / we heard you / now we’re acting on it!”


    *To opt in to receive important updates like surveys and product information & release schedule updates please contact your BRM or email us at and let us know you'd like to receive product notifications.

    When users are adding a note on to ticket, is there any way of changing the colour of the 'add note' button.  Feedback from users is that they click on the 'submit' button resulting in the note being lost. Vote here: Change the colour of the add note button
