Commsworld, the independent Scottish telecoms company with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, has won an exclusive partnering agreement with KCom to help deliver voice services to the Scottish Public Sector. The agreement runs until at least 2012 and offers preferential rates and services to all Scottish public sector organisations and registered charities.
Ricky Nicol, Commsworld CEO commented “it is fantastic news for Commsworld of course, but it is also great news for the Scottish economy in general. This agreement shows that local Scottish companies, if they do the right things, can play on the national stage. Now, Scottish organisations can leverage national purchasing power but retain all of the benefits of dealing with a local, Scottish company who are based on their doorstep”.
He continued, “Very often, national contracts are won by organisations based outside of Scotland who do not have the local presence or understanding to properly support their clients north of the border. In this case both KCom and Procurement Scotland are to be praised for facilitating what is in effect the best of both worlds for Scotland’s public sector. Coming at a time when budgets are tight we can now offer real value for money whilst retaining a local service organisation in tune with their needs.”
