The IT procurement process is notoriously complex, with many variables to consider. That’s why we offer an end-to-end service that is both efficient and cost-effective.
The IT procurement services process
IT procurement involves a wide range of considerations, from the specification of the hardware or software solution to be acquired through to costs and maintenance.
Our procurement experts take care of the entire process, leaving you to concentrate on your business. We use automated software to optimise the procurement process by forecasting when kit will deteriorate, or performance will degrade and need to be replaced. We keep you fully informed so you can remain confident your IT procurement activities are in safe hands. Outsourcing your hardware and software procurement is a simple way to save time and money. AAG IT Support Services can provide a thorough cost-benefit analysis to demonstrate return on investment.
We are always available to help you with all aspects of your company’s procurement process, from the initial need analysis to software licensing agreements. Our team can also manage your maintenance programmes, keep your systems running smoothly and recycle old equipment for you.

Where does the IT procurement process begin?
The start of any IT procurement process should include a thorough assessment of your needs.
The consultant or vendor should be there to provide advice about what is appropriate for your business. IT procurement should be an exciting opportunity to improve business processes, rather than an expensive headache. Efficient procurement can have a direct impact on the bottom line.
As a starting point with any new procurement customer, we focus on learning organisational procedures, existing vendors, supply chain roadblocks and current company practices. From here, we work to identify what our customer hopes to achieve through a procurement partner.
Innovation through Efficiency
Our IT procurement services help your company reduce costs and gain more value from its hardware and software investments.
For many businesses, there is a considerable amount of pressure to drive efficiency in their supply chain. A dedicated IT procurement manager can ensure old hardware is disposed of responsibly while managing contracts and helping to search and advise on new technology.
We are experts in recycling legacy hardware, helping you to minimise your environmental impact.

We can organise an ethical recycling service which makes sure your old equipment is disposed of responsibly and provide the necessary documentation for audit purposes.
