Corporate Express has secured a deal as ‘preferred supplier’ to the Australian Computer Society.
The deal will see the 14,000 members of the ACS get a 10 per cent discount on purchases made while Corporate Express will also donate a percentage of revenue directly to the ACS for industry development.
Jo Cass, Software and Licensing Manager NSW/ACT for Corporate Express, said “We are very confident that this partnership will prove successful for both parties and will drive great benefits through value and efficiencies through the ACS membership.
“Our mission is to provide a single source supply solution to make it easier and more cost effective for our customers to do business. The offer is beneficial to members because by consolidating suppliers they are increasing efficiencies around the procurement and the administration process,” she said.
“We are also providing bi-monthly offers on a variety of products, unique to the ACS membership and will be a significant reduction on current market pricing. Also, by spending with us, members will be putting money back into the IT industry, as a percentage of all ACS membership spend will be donated to the ACS foundation to drive IT apprenticeships,” she said.
Simon Kwan, Marketing Manager for the Australian Computer Society, said they chose Corporate Express due to the demand of their members’ requirements for IT products and services. “We came to the conclusion that the best partner was Corporate Express because it is a reputable organisation and they offer nationwide service.
