Cost Reduction & Tendering

  Cost Reduction & Tendering


Keeping IT costs down whilst managing the day to day workload can be challenging.  Maintaining the best value from your technology vendors requires regular and planned effort.  Often, it can be difficult to keep your eye on all of your suppliers.

We help our clients to achieve this.  Negotiating regularly with the major vendors, Turnstone drives large cost savings, faster progress and fairer contracts - and we always save much more than our fees.

Services Description
1. Tendering Process >>

Tendering drives competition, but can be time-consuming process. Our IT Procurement experts take on as much workload as you wish, to make it an easy process.

This means you get the best value for money (typical savings are 20% or more) and the best services, all in a watertight contract.

Our team has tendered everything from mobile phones to datacentres to full IT outsourcing requirements, with consistently good feedback from our clients.
