Abzorb takes ‘huge step’ onto public sector frameworks

Abzorb has become a supplier of services on two high profile public sector frameworks. The multi-million-pound turnover company is now an approved supplier on the telecoms framework for Jisc, whose members are colleges, universities and research centres, and The Scottish Government Framework.

It means organisations looking to purchase services through each of the frameworks can buy from Abzorb.

West Yorkshire-based Abzorb provides a comprehensive portfolio of telecoms products and services including mobile, fixed lines, broadband, hosted and on-site phone systems, plus CCTV and network cabling solutions.

Dean Al-Sened, Sales Manager at Abzorb, described getting onto Jisc’s framework as a “huge step”.
He also said Abzorb now has access to telephony spend from various public sector organisations within the Scottish Government. Across all its procurement the Scottish Government spends £11 billion per year.

“We already supply various telecoms services to University College London and Aston University,” said Dean. “So, getting on the Jisc framework and becoming an approved supplier is much welcomed news for us as it means organisations looking to purchase services are already aware that we are in a position to deliver the work – it’s just simply a case of us quoting them a price.

“This will very much allow us an opportunity to expand our offering into the public sector, particularly with universities and other education institutions.”

He added: “Abzorb being an approved supplier on The Scottish Government Framework has also come at a good time.

“We are able to provide our full suite of traditional and IP telephony services to any public sector organisation in Scotland, in areas such as health, education and central government.

“It’s obviously a different framework to Jisc but very much shows how established Abzorb is as a telecoms provider to the business community and where the company is headed.”
