What is Sourcewell?
Sourcewell provides cooperative contracts (we explain what that means later) for those in government, education, and non-profit organizations or agencies looking to purchase services or products.
However, unlike utilizing a consultant or trying to handle the research, interviewing, testing and let’s not forget negotiations all by yourself, Sourcewell has already handled this for you through what is called cooperative contracts.
What are Cooperative Contracts?
Cooperative contracts are essentially pre-negotiated at lower rates for you. If that’s not enough to get excited about, by using Sourcewell cooperative contracts, they handle the RFP procurement process ensuring all the competitive solicitation requirements are met.
This is possible because of the vast number of member organizations and agencies that Sourcewell serves (over 50,000 to give you an idea). You can sign up for membership here.
Similar to a farming cooperative that enables local residents to purchase locally grown produce at lower rates and who don’t have the time or resources to grow the food themselves, Sourcewell’s cooperative contracts are already negotiated and “cultivated” for you.
All you need to do is become a member and search for a vendor just like the other 50,000+ organizations and agencies have already done.
You walk away with…
- Fewer headaches and less stress!
Where does Mitel Fit into this?
Sourcewell has chosen Mitel as their sole vendor for phone system and unified communications technology solutions. As a Mitel Platinum partner this is exciting news for our customers and those wanting to implement Mitel’s products, including technologies to improve school safety such as mass notification systems.
If you didn’t think you could afford to update, enhance or purchase new phone and communications technologies for your school, school district, government or non-profit agency it’s time to think again!
Where does Converged Technology Professionals Fit into This?
While Sourcewell does quite a bit of the heavy lifting for you, they do not handle the necessary implementation or ongoing support and maintenance you will need for your Mitel solution.
Not all Mitel partners are awarded to work with Sourcewell contract opportunities, and we are proud to claim that Converged Technology Professionals is. As a Mitel Platinum partner, we are an awarded Mitel Dealer for Sourcewell contracts and we will work with you to ensure all your goals are met from start to finish.
