Leading systems integrator and managed services provider Maintel has been appointed as an approved supplier by the Crown Commercial Service for its new Network Services framework agreement (RM1045), demonstrating success within all of its chosen categories.
Maintel has been granted supplier status in no less than eight of the agreement’s 10 lots: Data Access services, Local Connectivity services, Traditional Telephony services, Inbound Telephony services, IP-Telephony services, Video Conferencing services, Audio Conferencing services and Integrated Communications services; and as a provider of Agency services. The agreement will recognise Maintel’s high standards of service within the public sector, making it more easily accessible for procurement by public sector bodies, including central and local governments, as well as the NHS.
Maintel Bid Manager Kay Sugg said, “We are thrilled to have our services approved onto the framework, with success within all the categories which we bid for. Being recognised as an official supplier will position us as one of the key partners for public sector contracts going forward. We are excited to have the opportunity to further build on our existing relationship with the UK public sector.”
Covering network and telecommunications services, the Network Services framework (RM1045) launched in July and will be available for use later this month. The agreement aims to offer more opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises to provide services for the government and other public sector bodies.
Eddie Buxton, CEO of Maintel Group, said, “We are honoured to be chosen as an official supplier for Crown Commercial Service, which demonstrates a clear trust in our quality of service. This announcement tops what has been a period of sustained growth and success for Maintel. Becoming an official network services supplier under the new agreement will help to drive forward our development to further strengthen our performance in the public sector arena in which Maintel has a long track-record of success.”
