Daisy Group plc, a leading provider of business communications, is delighted to announce that it has been chosen as one of the providers on the framework agreement for IP telephony systems and as the sole provider for the procurement of Mitel and Avaya handsets to Scottish universities and colleges.
The framework agreement presents members of the APUCframework (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) with the opportunity to benefit from marketing-leading IP telephony solutions.
IP telephony is particularly useful for multi-site educational institutions, helping ensure campuses can communicate more efficiently and effectively.
The framework was created to provide handsets and IP telephony systems to APUC members, offering the best value without the need for high spend or volume commitments.
The position on the framework agreements, which initially runs until September 2015 (with potential for extension beyond this), was awarded to Daisy after participating in an EU level tender led by APUC. Daisy’s flexibility, engineering resources and excellent customer service were all key attributes in obtaining the contract.
Daisy now also has the ability to provide a range of services to the large framework base, including solution configuration, implantation and management; network services; maintenance and support and telecommunication consultancy; and related professional services.
Andrew Fryatt, Daisy Group Retail Director, said: “The APUC framework win is fantastic news for Daisy as it provides us with greater opportunities to supply services to publicly funded organisations.
“The services we provide for Scottish educational institutions will keep them in line with the market’s latest communications solutions and ensure they can work more efficiently and productively.”
