Bringing power to your procurement

Our software team offers you a range of solutions and services to suit your organisation’s needs and ensure great value. 

The team of procurement specialists have developed a variety of frameworks that provide compliant and hassle free routes to market for: 

  • software licenses and support renewals
  • design, implementation and ongoing maintenance
  • software-led office systems tailored to your specific needs

With access to major vendors on these frameworks, as well as partners, resellers and SMEs, we have done the due diligence to ensure you have access to the most able, experienced and professional suppliers. 

Within the team we also have skilled licensing and commercial experts who negotiate and manage a range of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with major software suppliers, such as Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and Workday, giving you access to discounted pricing and special terms for your software licensing agreements. 

We offer free advice and guidance and are available to answer any questions you may have about software contracts, audits or licensing.
