We were delighted to have been in attendance once more at this year’s Procurex Scotland 2017 on Wednesday 25th October.
It is the most important day of the year for Scotland’s public procurement community. Capital were proud to have had a prominent presence.
Procurex Scotland 2017 – Seminars and champagne
Situated at Gold Stand 24, at the SEC in Glasgow, we showcased devices from our HP and Ricoh MFD range, and also a MakerBot 3D printer. A champagne prize draw was also held, with the winner hailing from Accountant in Bankruptcy – congratulations!
Speakers included: Derek Mackay, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Construction, who recently paid a visit to Capital’s Edinburgh office; Gerry Walsh, Interim CEO at CIPS, who spoke about “Leading global excellence in procurement and supply”; and Tim Jenkins, Director at WheelSpinner, who lead a seminar on “Do you even know how you’re sold to?”.
Fraser Robertson, Capital’s Scottish Procurement Framework Manager said: “Procurex is the foremost public sector event in the calendar for our industry. It’s been a great meeting key decision-makers and seeing some enlightening presentations.“
National Framework Agreement for Office Equipment
The framework was designed for the Scottish public sector, charities and housing associations to simplify acquiring office equipment, reduce costs. Therefore, it helps ensure the best possible advice on the most suitable print solutions.
Competitive prices are also agreed under the Framework. By introducing print management software, organisations can achieve a reduction in the amount they spend on copying / printing. As a Framework supplier, we provide photocopiers, printers, scanners, associated software and also support services to all Scottish public sector bodies.
The Scottish Government’s 13th National Procurement Conference was also hosted at Procurex Scotland. The conference provided attendees an invaluable insight into the latest developments and opportunities taking place across Scotland.
