Managed Services Provider strengthens its commitment to public sector organisations in Scotland.

Managed Services Provider Annodata has been awarded a position on the National Framework for the provision of office equipment to the Scottish public sector, in recognition of the Managed Services Provider’s economically advantageous solutions. Earning a place on the framework will enable Annodata to act as a trusted advisor to the public sector in Scotland and underpins the Managed Services Providers commitment to these organisations.

The Scottish National Framework for Office Equipment is designed to achieve the best value for the total spend within the Scottish public sector and offers consistent national pricing for a full catalogue of office equipment products, including multi-functional devices and services.

Annodata is just one of eight suppliers to be awarded a position on the framework, following the completion of a comprehensive tender exercise, under EU public procurement regulations. In addition to this framework, Annodata has recently achieved a place on the Central Buying Consortium (CBC) framework, Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC) framework, as well as the NHS London Procurement Partnership (NHS LPP) framework.

Rod Tonna-Barthet, CEO of Annodata, commented: “The public sector is an extremely important area for Annodata and we understand the importance of supporting innovation, efficiency and cost-effectiveness as this sector comes under increasing pressure to contain expenditure and become more accountable for how it spends taxpayers’ money. While some organisations have made great strides in reimagining their print estates, along with other aspects of their office equipment, many still have ample room for improvement.

“We have helped countless public sector organisations navigate a safe and secure path to cost reduction and efficiency and we are excited about growing our presence in Scotland even further. This position builds on our strong Scottish client base and means that we can bolster our support for public sector businesses in this region.

“Following the acquisition of Annodata by our longstanding partner KyoceraCorporation, our newly formed structure stands to benefit the Scottish public sector by providing access to leading products and services at more competitive prices and at wider reaching service levels. We are delighted to have earned our place on this framework and look forward to maintaining our commitment to the public sector,” concludes Rod.
