Our dedicated approach and reputation for consistently delivering unbeatable service, makes us a worthy partner for all our customers, across all the market sectors we deal in.
Many of the IT challenges facing our customers are similar - but our customers themselves could not be more diverse. We provide services to the Corporate Sector, Local Government Organisations, LEAs, Schools, Higher and Further Education Institutions, Research Councils, Voluntary Organisations and Housing Associations.
We are able to quickly cut through the myriad of possibilities for your licensing needs to provide you with succinct recommendations on how best to procure your software. Additionally, we aim to provide you with timely advice and assistance on processes that ensure software compliance and efficient deployment. Our Corporate Team has the expertise and tools to streamline both procurement and asset management and will take pleasure from discussing the help we can offer you.
We are very proud of the fact that we pioneered concessionary pricing schemes for social enterprises in partnership with the NCVO, NHF, NICVA, SCVO, SFHA and WCVA. For nearly two decades, we have encouraged software manufacturers to recognise the status of these organisations across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Today, nine out of ten voluntary organisations and housing associations use Phoenix to leverage their special status against the very best volume licensing prices from all the major manufacturers including Citrix, Symantec, Microsoft, VMware and Adobe.
A thorough and demonstrable understanding of the procurement and compliance needs of local authorities is a cornerstone of our business. We have high status with the LGA, Government Procurement Service (GPS, formerly Buying Solutions), Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) and Pro5 who represent the interests of Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO), Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO), West Mercia Supplies (WMS) and Central Buying Consortium (CBC). Such accreditation ensures best value and quality support.
For two decades, we have helped schools and education bodies buy the right software with 'best value' practices in mind. Long term partnerships to achieve the best prices for schools are in place with the Local Government Association (LGA), Pro5 Consortium (ESPO, NEPO, YPO, WMS and CBC) and Education Scotland (formerly LTS). Our dedicated Schools Team brings empathy and focus for those who procure for academic institutions and make it easy for this customer group to demonstrate 'best value' in their procurement. Our printed and electronically published 'Schools Catalogue' is also a great asset to those seeking either inspiration or specialised products, as well as for commonly purchased products.
We help Central Government organisations meet their everyday IT challenges by simplifying the software lifecycle from procurement through to deployment, support and compliance. Our dedicated licensing specialists help reduce costs and improve efficiency, while our place on key framework agreements such as the Government Procurement Service (formerly Buying Solutions), ensures we always provide best value.
We have an ever-increasing list of NHS organisations which look to us for advice and support in meeting the IT challenges they face in the modern NHS. Our dedicated NHS Team works closely with the NHS Teams at all the key vendors. These close relationships ensure we offer the best advice, not only around the licensing options available to NHS organisations, but also in connection with the latest technologies such as VDI and mobile working.
We work strategically with a number of Police Constabularies and Criminal Justice Agencies, offering them advice and guiding them to the most cost effective route to managing their software licensing requirements. We are perfectly placed to advise on the latest technologies, in particular the specialist security solutions now available.
Cast iron relationships with Eduserv CHEST, Central Purchasing Consortium (CPC) and Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC) ensure good customer care and value for money. Over fifteen years, we have become a regular supplier to more than half the institutions in the sector. We are able to cut straight through the myriad of possibilities to provide you with choices that meet your needs and satisfy the rigours of 'Best Value'. Our unrivalled status as the largest supplier to the sector means that we are also the custodian of special pricing schemes from a number of key vendors.
