The latest technology aggregation opportunities to help you buy smarter
By combining the similar needs of customers from across the public sector, we can increase our national buying power to help you achieve savings on technology.
Are you looking to buy IT hardware such as laptops, desktops or mobile phones, or do you need to renew your Adobe software license?
By simply telling us about the technology you need to buy, we can help you achieve savings that would not be possible by buying alone.
We do this by collating your requirements with the requirements of other public sector bodies, which increases our buying power.
Best of all, it’s a complimentary service that we offer to help you focus on other, more important tasks.
Take a look at our upcoming opportunities and discover how you can get involved.
