Reduce IT and Telecom Costs
Managing IT and telecom costs within the public sector can be challenging, especially when every pound spent can come under scrutiny. As communications technologies become more complex, organisations are tasked with finding ways to efficiently and effectively reduce costs, while optimising their existing infrastructure — and demonstrating strong fiscal responsibility. A current objective of the UK government is to help generate efficiency gains across public sector technology services, which has resulted in the creation of the RM3802 Technology Expense Management framework.
As the exclusive supplier of the RM3802 Technology Expense Management framework, Calero Veropath is the only Technology Expense Management solution to meet the rigorous requirements set out by the UK Crown Commercial Service (CCS). The streamlined procurement process uses pre-agreed standard terms, conditions and pricing — managed centrally by the CCS. This means that Calero can begin deploying our solution and discover savings as early as possible. We do the heavy lifting for you so you can focus your efforts on other core activities.
