What we do
UoL’s existing datacentre infrastructure was aging and needed an upgrade. Softcat helped to implement datacentre, network and security technologies, ensuring that when providing BYOD functionality to students and staff, security wouldn’t be compromised.
The existing network storage infrastructure of Leeds City College relied upon to deliver a range of IT services had been in place for almost a decade. How did Softcat help to overcome their infrastructure challenges and future proof their IT provision?
We sit on several higher education frameworks, giving univeristy customers access to a wide range of IT products and services. Through frameworks such as JISC Network Equipment, SUPC SSSNA, NEUPC HE Networking Supply and Services, SUPC ITRAP, NEUPC Audio Visual and the SUPC Software License Resellers Agreement, we are able to offer a one-stop-shop facility. Other UK public sector frameworks such as NHS SBS LINK Solutions and CCS Technology Products and Services, can also be accessed by our education customers to securely procure a wide variety of IT requirements.
In addition, frameworks such as CCS Education Technology allow us to assist new build schools when purchasing their IT equipment. Other CPC and KCS framework accreditations also allow us to further support schools and colleges with IT procurement. An extensive list of some of the frameworks available to education customers via Softcat can be seen below:
Softcat’s commercial services provide a specialist understanding of frameworks and the best procurement process to make this less complicated, and more cost effective for all public sector organisations.Find out more
