In this article, learn how you can take advantage of our complimentary technology aggregation service to help your organisation make savings.

With budgets and resources more squeezed than ever, public procurement is no easy task. As organisations are looking for ways to meet ever growing demands, our team of technology experts are on hand to help take the pressure off with our complimentary aggregation service, also known as collective buying.

By combining the similar needs of customers from across the public sector, we can increase our national buying power to achieve savings that would not be possible by individual purchasing.

There is not only an obvious cost saving that can be achieved, we have the advantage of  employing a team of experts who deliver social and economic value on a day-to-day basis, along with an unrivaled national buying power. This means we are able to take care of the process for you to get the best possible deal, which releases your internal resources to focus on other areas of your business or on more complex procurements.

During the last financial year, we helped 41 customers save over £2.1 million on IT hardware, with savings of 15-24% secured across a range of hardware products.”

Our latest aggregation for mobile voice and data services helped 5 customers achieve average savings of 72%, which is the equivalent of £1.1million for those who took part.”

All customers who participate in our aggregation opportunities will benefit from the savings, no matter how large or small the requirement, and each will complete their own individual contracts once the procurement is awarded.

The technology aggregation team runs regular collective buying opportunities for customers for IT hardware and mobile voice and data services. They also run competitions for other technology requirements such as:

  • automatic number plate recognition cameras
