On the back of superb growth in 2003, Birmingham IT reseller, Probrand, is kick starting the first quarter with record pace, signing ten new customers a day to its IT Index – Europe’s largest on line IT procurement hub.

And with a goal of signing 650 new customers by the end of quarter one, Probrand’s £1.8M turnover IT Index looks set to continue its 80% growth posted in 2003.

The IT Index is a malleable on line trading portal that lists over 50,000 product lines based on best price and current availability from over 500 vendors. This means users can secure the quickest possible delivery of any given product at the most competitive price via a Private Procurement Hub.

Registered customers benefit from a bespoke catalogue of products, which enables an organisation to enforce greater financial control whilst increasing business efficiency by eliminating the need for buyers to conduct time consuming ring rounds to an extensive list of suppliers.

Ultimately, The IT Index can help increase profits by reducing time wastage, eradicating rogue purchasing and providing products faster and cheaper.

Probrand Group Marketing Manager, Ian Williamson, said: “Customers are seeing real benefits gained from the speed and ease of use of the IT Index, add this to the massive reductions in ‘rogue’ purchasing brought about by the extensive built-in reporting, monitoring and flagging features; these benefits are quickly having a positive effect on their bottom lines – and of course it’s free!”
