UniCORN Framework

If your organisation isn’t based in the capital there are still plenty of frameworks you can use to get better value, better services, or both.

One example is the UniCORN Partnership framework, which is designed for local authorities who want to combine forces to get the very best deal for everyone. It helps organisations that have banded together get the products and services they need for less – all thanks to the benefits of scale.

The partnership helps multiple local authorities procure as one entity. There are currently more than 25 partners who can buy IT products and services more easily by working together. That means there’s no need for a tender process, so everyone saves money.

UniCORN already provides services to organisations including Central Surrey Health, East Sussex County Council and schools in Surrey. The framework sources from more than 350 major brands in the ICT sector, including BT, Cisco, EE and Microsoft. It handles managed WAN links to over 500 sites, delivers hosted telephony to more than 7,000 users and supports more than 300 agents with Cisco Cloud Contact Centres. And it’s saving its users money along the way.
