Agilitas IT Solutions has announced a new partnership agreement with Maintel. As part of the agreement, Maintel has transferred inventory management and stock ownership to Agilitas who will take responsibility for managing the contract for an initial five years.
Maintel collaborated with Agilitas to provide a flexible, automated and well-integrated inventory management service that will enable the company to enhance the speed of delivery at scale in-line with ambitious growth plans.
Gillian Bailey, operations director at Maintel, explained, “The transition to Agilitas was well planned, managed and executed and even when we had the inevitable teething problems in early life they came to the table with realistic solutions and a ‘can-do’ attitude. Our customers have undoubtedly benefited from this partnership – we were ‘OK’ at logistics prior to the outsource but we lacked automation and a general logistics know-how. However, now that we are working with Agilitas we can see what a real logistics organisation can do in terms of systems, processes, spares profiling and logistics best practice.”
Maintel will use Agilitas’ advanced inventory-as-a-service solution, InventoryAssure+, to provide engineering resource and supply multi-vendor tech spares to support customers, as well as the nationwide storage and distribution of all project stock.
Shaun Lynn, CEO of Agilitas, added, “Automation is at the heart of modern inventory management and working with Maintel represents its transformative power to drive operational efficiency at scale. We are extremely proud of the strong progression and success that the Maintel team are already seeing through this strategic partnership and look forward to continuing our high-quality service that both supports its customers and growth objectives.”
