Scottish Procurement Framework: Public Sector Benefits

18th March 2024 | Blogs

We understand that, for a hashtag#publicsector organisations, managing printing infrastructure can be a complex and time-consuming task. However, the Scottish procurement framework for managed print offers a solution that can help you streamline the procurement process and achieve cost savings. In this article, we'll explore how public sector organisations can leverage this framework to their benefit and how Workflo Solutions ® (SP-21-046), a supplier of the framework, can help organisations achieve their goals.

What is the Scottish Procurement Framework for Managed Print?

The Scottish procurement framework for managed print is a centralised procurement process that enables public sector organisations to purchase office equipment and managed print services from approved suppliers. This Framework Agreement has been established to take the hassle out of acquiring office equipment, significantly reducing costs. It ensures that approved suppliers like Workflo Solutions ® provide the best possible advice on the most suitable high-quality products and document management solutions.

How can you leverage the Framework for your organisational benefit?

There are plenty of game-changing advantages in store for your public sector organisation to leverage from the Scottish procurement framework for managed print and take your organisation to the next level.

Firstly, the new framework not only offers organisations like yours a wide range of office equipment products and associated services, at lower prices but also gives a central point for contract management. Secondly, the framework allows for a more compliant and easy procurement route to market for printing products and associated services. Thirdly, it helps you achieve cost savings by providing an opportunity to drive the best value for money for more complex and/or higher-value solutions that are more energy efficient and sustainable.

Finally, the framework provides you with peace of mind, as all suppliers on the framework including Workflo Solutions ® (SP-21-046) have been pre-vetted for quality, service, and compliance by The Scottish Government. Meaning you can be confident that you receive high-quality managed print services that meet your unique requirements.

How can Workflo Solutions help as a Supplier on the Framework?

Workflo Solutions has a proud heritage of working with organisations in Scotland and across the UK to deliver print and document workflow solutions - and since 2007, it has flourished and grown into a leading managed service provider in the UK.

We understand that the decision to appoint a managed print or document management supplier can be a complex one. The management of your infrastructure and processes is fundamental to your organisation, and with an almost endless supply of vendors, and an array of hardware and software options, each with differing strengths, it is easy to get lost in a sea of information.

As an expert managed service provider, we promise to provide first-class service to our clients regardless of the geography of their offices. We believe that to do so, we must be in control of processes nationally for administration, consumable supply and service provision. To facilitate this, we have strategically positioned offices in Edinburgh, North West England, and Aberdeen; this ensures that all the staff involved in providing this first-class service are employed directly by Workflo. This removes the sub-contracting model used by many businesses and ensures we are in control of the attention and care you receive, from start to finish.

The modern world allows us to communicate faster and easier than ever before. We must embrace new and evolutionary technology to maximise the level of service delivered to our customers. We believe that we should be available quickly, simply and conveniently. Showing our commitment to this, we’ve developed a custom app which allows live chat with our service team, fault logging, consumable orders, and meter input. Coupled with our fleet automation software, flomanager, provided as standard, there have never been more ways to benefit from a partnership with Workflo.

Workflo Solutions ®, as a supplier of the Scottish procurement framework for managed print, can provide all public sector organisations, a range of managed print services, including device management, print security, and document workflow solutions.
