The continuous refresh and upgrade of Sheffield Hallam University‘s large fleet of personal computers and laptops is a major project that requires comprehensive planning, technical skills and efficient execution. It requires a staffing requirement review, procurement selection and negotiation, scheduling, staging and a concentrated time commitment for the implementation.

Sheffield Hallam University’s IT staff couldn’t handle the size of the project in-house, and following a rigorous tendering exercise, choose Apogee as their preferred supplier based on best value proposition and the significant benefits of over 25 years’ experience of successfully delivering similar supply agreements in the higher education sector.

Apogee Desktop Services exceeded the University’s expectations by consistently delivering a cost-efficient and highly successful supply and installation model with the absolute minimum disruption to the day to day operations of the University.

Sheffield Hallam University set out to identify and work with a supplier that could not only act as a “one stop shop” for all its IT hardware needs, it also required a strategic partner that is able to provide bespoke value add services, generate commercial savings and create greater efficiencies in the supply and deployment of IT equipment. Apogee Desktop Services is now that partner.

Benefits to Sheffield Hallam University:

  • Work with tier one IT vendors to achieve lowest pricing and best services.
  • Experienced purchasing staff to maximise allowances, rebates and special offers.
  • Combine with other Apogee purchases to negotiate even higher discounts based on.
  • Manufacturer product life cycle and nondisclosure specifications on new models.
