Centralised Purchasing

NSMS has many years of experience in configuring and installing new hardware and software in many sites throughout the University. Some of our clients have no more than two or three PCs; others may have several hundred PCs using multiple servers. Along with this experience comes an understanding of how important it is to get the right hardware for the right job. NSMS have a long established relationship with many of the major vendors like Dell, Viglen and IBM and we are able to offer our clients very favourable discounts as a result. We also can take advantage of bulk purchase and educational discounts, which will be passed directly on to you.

NSMS can provide a range of hardware and software purchasing facilities at very competitive prices which means that you can sit back and let us do the hard work, knowing that you are in experienced hands.

Established Relationships and Extensive Experience

Where items are in stock our aim is to have all items delivered directly to you within 48 hours, sometimes as little as 24 hours, at no extra charge.

When you deal with NSMS, you will be in contact with a knowledgeable individual who will be fully aware of your purchase details and able to deal with questions. We can check on your order either online or by speaking to the supplier/vendor directly.

Any technical issues you may have can be passed on to our team of experienced Systems Administrators.

NSMS only uses suppliers who have up to date stock levels, shipping and consignment details readily available and who have proved efficient in ensuring fast and accurate delivery.

NSMS offers a one stop, comprehensive, purchasing solution. We will deal with the complete ordering process, from finding the best price through to invoicing and delivery - giving you the time that you need to concentrate on your job.
