Sheffield Hallam University

Hallam University were struggling to manage its enormous computer fleet alongside other IT responsibilities. Apogee were brought in to oversee the project to completion and create efficiencies within the system.

 

“Apogee exceeded the University’s expectations by consistently delivering a cost efficient and highly successful supply and installation model with the absolute minimum disruption to the day-to-day operations of the University.”

The Background

The continuous refresh and upgrade of their large fleet of personal computers and laptops is a major project that requires comprehensive planning, technical skills and efficient execution. Planning for a PC or a laptop refresh requires a staffing requirement review, procurement selection and negotiation, scheduling, staging and a concentrated time commitment for the implementation.

Based on the effort required, it became extremely challenging for the University’s IT staff to complete installation and cascade projects without impacting on their other duties and responsibilities, supporting student and staff needs.

 

The Solution

Following a rigorous tendering exercise, Sheffield Hallam University awarded Apogee a supply and staging contract based on best value, and the significant benefits of over 25 years’ experience of successfully delivering similar supply agreements in the higher education sector.

Apogee has the experienced staff and proven methodologies to ensure a successful PC and laptop refresh in conjunction with an organisation’s PC lifecycle strategy. Our talented team of project managers and technical professionals handled the entire project in conjunction with the IT staff to share project responsibilities.

 

The Outcome

Apogee exceeded the University’s expectations by consistently delivering a cost-efficient and highly successful supply and installation model with the absolute minimum disruption to the day-to-day operations of the University.

Sheffield Hallam University set out to identify and work with a supplier that could not only act as a “one stop shop” for all its IT hardware needs, it also required a strategic partner that is able to provide bespoke value add services, generate commercial savings and create greater efficiencies in the supply and deployment of IT equipment. Apogee is now that partner.
