Get the best value when you buy IT

Managing the complexity of IT sourcing

Buying IT is complex. Not only do you have to identify the right system to achieve your current business requirements, you also have to anticipate your future goals, and envisage how your industry may change. Technology changes frequently as well, so renewal has to be anticipated and planned for.

Even once you’ve settled on a system, buying is still challenging. Sourcing managed networks, voice and data services, hardware and software all present different difficulties.

Aligning contracts and selecting suppliers that are best suited to add value to your business is specialised and time-consuming. And getting it wrong can be expensive and constrain your business.

Having a planned IT purchasing strategy will help provides greater predictability for your budgeting and help your IT spend work harder for your business. So a managed service provider with demonstrable strategic planning and sourcing skills is the answer.

Blue Saffron have gone the extra mile in liaising with many of my third party software and service vendors to ensure the smooth running of my business.

With Blue Saffron’s strategic IT procurement you get the right IT for less

Our market sector knowledge will help you select suitable technologies for your business. We propose a buying strategy that sets out what you need to buy, when and who from. It keeps you within budget and secures the systems your organisation requires both for now and the future.

As we buy services for many clients, you will also benefit from our buying power. We purchase hardware and software licenses at extremely competitive pricing and in most cases at rates substantially below buy-direct rates. Much IT budget is spent on monthly licensing. We can integrate your IT and manage license costs to minimise spend.

Get a better deal from IT procurement

Many businesses already have a number of third party suppliers in place, so we take a flexible approach to how we work together. We can take responsibility for all your IT buying, structuring and aligning agreements to help secure immediate and future financial benefits. Or we can simply make recommendations on the best purchases and leave you to handle the transaction.

Many customers choose a hybrid arrangement, where we handle the technical purchases in certain parts of your business but leave you to take care of it in others. With either approach, involving Blue Saffron brings a number of advantages:

  • We take time to understand your business goals and provide expert guidance on the IT services we know will increase your productivity
  • We are experts in the IT vendor marketplace, helping you find the most suitable solutions for your needs
  • We help secure strong commercial terms, often resulting in lower purchase prices from our economies of scale
  • We can help structure deals, providing better technical purchasing and lower total IT costs
