With Cygnet’s help, we will have your IT on your school steps ready to be installed in record time.
What is purchasing and procurement?
Purchasing and procurement is the process of sourcing, negotiating, and purchasing products and services. The procurement process itself can be long winded and strenuous if schools lack strong supplier relationships, must negotiate education discounts, and require particular or unique equipment. Outsourcing this process ensures schools receive the quality equipment they require within budget without lifting a finger. This service also ensures schools have consistency in their equipment and only purchase IT that is compatible with and builds upon the current IT infrastructure.
Why do we need purchasing and procurement?
Outsourcing purchasing and procurement services for many schools reduces purchasing risk, ensures value for money, and maintains IT consistencies throughout the school. Achieving the above without regular involvement in purchasing and procurement, strong supplier relationships and confidence in IT is a time consuming and costly venture. Outsourcing your purchasing and procurement needs will save your team time and money while also ensuring you receive the equipment you need, when you need it without any problems along the way.
