Last updated on: April 25, 2017, Author: Editorial Team

Leegomery Computers has been selected as a supplier to one of the country’s largest educational purchasing groups.

Based at the Telford Innovation Campus, the firm has won a place within the Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC).

The firm has some West Midlands educational institutions as its clients, such as the University of Wolverhampton and Wolverhampton schools, together with several local authorities. However, joining the consortium is set to considerably expand its customer base.

Nick Del-Manso, IT network manager of Wolverhampton Girls High School,commented: “The school had spoken to many suppliers to determine stock levels of MS Surface 3 devices and we needed to source a reliable supplier that could guarantee to deliver on time.  Leegomery Computers met the criteria with a professional and courteous provision by delivering to exact specification and on the dates required.

“We were delighted with the service as this meant our sixth form students could soon enjoy the benefit of the new one2one devices.”

Sales director Harvey Shergill, of Leegomery Computers, commented:  “Being chosen by CPC is a major step forward for us and will allow us to tender for work in further education institutions, academies, schools and free schools across the country.”

The firm provides a range services from consulting, design, supply, integration, maintenance and support of IT systems, and also provides a 24-7 on-site helpline, allowing customers instant access to a certified professional expert, as well as remote and on-site support.

Harvey continued: “We had to fulfill a range of stringent requirements in order to be selected so our success is an endorsement of our high quality work. The consortium is regarded as the home of best value purchasing arrangements for the education sector and was developed to fill a gap in the provision of reliable and best-value frameworks.

“It now operates as a not-for-profit organisation, meaning that any surpluses generated are invested back into member support and wider services, with all its income staying within the further education and academy sectors.”
