What did they need?
The university wanted a procurement framework that would guarantee them additional services, such as restricted catalogues, bundled pricing, maintenance contracts and four year warranties.
How did we help?
Having won the tender for the framework, we’re now the university’s sole Apple provider, delivering hardware, support, four year warranties and a dedicated purchasing portal that integrates with their SciQuest back end.
What were the benefits?
• The university’s Apple estate has a uniform level of support and protection, complete with SLAs for deliveries, replacements and repairs.
• SciQuest integration and regular asset listing mean they have better visibility over their Apple estate.
• Our broad expertise has meant we’ve been able to advise on and support the university’s AV acquisitions too, and help them find partners for any solution they need to develop.
