The company stated that the framework is for “multifunctional devices and associated print services”, and is “devised to drive best value purchasing arrangements for the education sector and broader elements of the public sector” in the UK. Earning this place will enable the company to “act as a trusted advisor to the public sector in the UK and underpins” Annodata’s “commitment to this vertical”.
Annodata added that the CPC “provides its members with specialist advice on best spending practices and how to obtain best value for money”, with its “main purpose” to “produce EU-tendered purchasing frameworks covering a wide variety of products and services”, including professional services, ICT and telecoms, and print.
Suppliers seeking to “achieve a place” are “evaluated on a wide range of criteria” including “their ability to execute, pricing, support services, and service portfolio”, with Annodata marked “highest of all suppliers” on Lot 1, which covers “multifunctional/reprographic devices and associated print services and supplies”, as well as achieving a place on Lot 3, which covers “managed print and document services”.
Rod Tonna-Barthet, CEO of Annodata, commented: “The public sector is an incredibly important vertical market for Annodata which we understand intimately, and one in which we’ve enjoyed significant success. This comes down to the fact that it’s one of the sectors that stands to benefit the most from the type of services that we provide and the high levels of service we offer.
“Print and document management remains incredibly important for organisations such as colleges and universities, NHS trusts and local councils and while some institutions have made great strides towards making their print estate more efficient and cost-effective, many haven’t. We still see a huge amount of waste, inefficient usage of resources, and environmentally harmful practices.
“We’ve helped countless public sector organisations to get a grip of their print estate, and achieve the visibility, transparency and control needed to drive down costs and improve their environmental footprint and overall efficiency. We remain a vendor-independent managed print and IT Services provider who is able to offer the best possible bespoke solutions for our customers.
“We are delighted to have earned our place on the CPC framework; something that reinforces our position as a trusted advisor to the public sector and will make it much more straightforward for the public sector as a whole to engage with us.”
The company was acquired by Kyocera last December, with the OEM stating at the time that the deal “will significantly increase the capabilities of Kyocera Document Solutions UK”.
