We’re pleased to share that ESPO have joined forces once again with Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to provide a solution that gives customers quick, easy and compliant access to an innovative technology offering at a time when it’s most needed.
As more people navigate the realities of remote and home working, this latest partnership allows us to offer maximum value to customers buying hardware and software through two new collaborative frameworks:
This framework offers public sector buyers a compliant route to market for technology product needs (hardware and software) and all associated services.
This framework provides educational establishments with a route to market for a broad range of technologies and services, ranging from a simple one-off purchase or refresh, to a new build or a long-term technology partnership.
ESPO and CCS have been working together since 2012 for the benefit of customers and the public purse. This latest collaboration means that customers will receive greater access to expertise, with support and guidance available at every stage.
At a time when remote working has become the new norm, many organisation including schools and colleges are recognising the long-term implications and taking proactive steps to invest in technology. Both frameworks are key routes to market for remote working technologies and the services now needed to ensure staff can operate effectively from home.
This latest collaboration comes at a crucial time as many people continue to navigate new ways of working remotely. These solutions ensure the best possible service and outcome for our customers and the wider public sector, allowing quick, easy and compliant access to a wide range of technology hardware and software. We’re pleased to be continuing our work with CCS in our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of our customers.’
