Computacenter Express helps small businesses reduce risk and increase long-term value of IT purchases

14th April 2008 - Computacenter, the European provider of IT services and solutions, has today launched a new web-based IT purchasing service aimed specifically at small and medium sized businesses. Computacenter Express combines the company’s extensive experience of helping large organisations maximise their IT spend with the ease of online purchasing to create a simple and cost-effective procurement experience for the SMB market.

Computacenter Express also takes the complexity and research out of the purchasing experience for small businesses through its ‘Computacenter Recommends’ portfolio. The portfolio chooses the best products that the market has to offer, in terms of lifetime business value, while leveraging Computacenter’s buying power to guarantee low prices and next business day delivery. The portfolio also combines ‘best buy’ and ‘safest buy’ into a single recommendation to help SMBs make the most out of their IT budget whether they are buying printer cartridges or PCs.

As well as using the ‘Computacenter Recommends’ suggestions, small businesses will be able to shop by brand and category and can filter items according to their technical specification and discount offers. The website has also been designed so that anyone within an SME organisation can use it to find the right equipment for their company.

James Pelham-Burn, Director of E-Business at Computacenter explains: “Many small businesses don’t have dedicated IT or procurement staff but still want the best and most reasonably priced IT equipment to meet their business needs. With Computacenter Express, anyone in the organisation, whether it’s the financial director or office manager, can make informed purchasing decisions without it taking hours of research or needing a high level of IT expertise.”

Pelham-Burn continues: “The current economic climate means that businesses both large and small are looking at cutting their IT spend but don’t want to compromise on quality. Computacenter has always been committed to helping enterprise customers to maximise the value of their IT expenditure and we’re now bringing this experience and expertise to the small business market. The products on Computacenter Express are competitively priced and bring with them the assurance of Computacenter’s high quality requirements so SMB customers can be sure that they are getting maximum value from their IT budget.”
