Birmingham IT service provider, Intercity has been announced as one of eight suppliers awarded a place on Lot 2 of Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Mobile, Voice, and Data Services Procurement Framework.
The CCS agreement covers a spectrum of mobile usage across the public sector, from schools to large government departments. It seeks to simplify the procurement process by offering public sector organisations a list of trusted suppliers to partner with and providing transparent pricing for core services. The list will see Intercity included alongside other leading names in the technology and telecommunications sector, such as Vodafone and EE.
As a supplier, Intercity will offer public sector organisations a range of mobile and data services, as well as full-service support, including installation management and regular package reviews, to ensure the best price and efficiency.
Elise Sheridon, Bid Manager at Intercity said, “We’re delighted to have been chosen as one of just eight suppliers by Crown Commercial Service. The accreditation is a fantastic achievement for the business and something we’re proud to have achieved as we enter the new year. With the end of the financial year looming and companies increasingly looking to cut costs, we look forward to showing our public sector customers how we prioritise our services and do more to deliver the best packages at competitive prices.
“We also understand how important the social value charter is to public sector customers and we can assist them in doing more for their citizens and community by offering bespoke environmentally focused solutions, including efficient delivery and rollout as well as ‘green’ accessories.”
Intercity is further celebrating having recently been awarded a Platinum Ecovadis sustainability score, putting it in the top 1 per cent of sustainable businesses globally. As part of this, Intercity offers eSims to reduce plastic waste and is committed to securely recycling phones, allowing them to be reused. Where this is not possible, the raw materials are recycled.
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2021/22, CCS helped the public sector achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.8 billion - supporting world-class public services that offer the best value for taxpayers.
