In the summer of 2008, Port-P managed a ‘deliver to desk’ solution for computers in Sage’s UK offices, making pricing bids directly with the manufacturer to drive costs down.
We also arranged for all of Sage’s new desktop computers and notebooks to have images and asset tags (for security) applied to them prior to delivery, saving time and resources. This solution was a major success: within two weeks of Sage’s original order, more than 900 desktops and 260 notebooks were ready for them.
Sage now uses the Port-P website to buy everyday consumables. We build and test products such as servers before delivering them to the company, eliminating possible hitches and ensuring their projects run to schedule.
What the client says:
“The site is quick, reliable and presents the best pricing on a regular basis. This is important to our procurement team as they can see the pricing and stock online. If the part is not available then Port-P’s account management team are extremely quick to respond.
“Port-P has continuously supplied us with evaluation products when required and they show a great understanding in our IT infrastructure. This makes dealing with Port-P easy and effective. Their product knowledge is key as we need to be aware of new technology and changes and how this might affect our projects.”
