Softcat has announced the renewal of its supplier status on HealthTrust Europe’s (HTE) ComIT 2 framework, which will enable the IT reseller to continue delivering enterprise-level ICT products and services to the UK public sector.

A four-year national contract, the HTE framework offers a “new and refreshed” route to market for the public sector’s IT needs, Softcat said, with customers gaining access to a new range of suppliers and a revamped services line-up.

The initiative promises to deliver hardware, software, programs, applications, security, computer science, managed services, consultancy, as well as associated to services to public sector organisations ranging from health and social care to government.

“Unlike its predecessor, the ComIT 2 framework is presented to customers as a single LOT; which means customers will benefit from a simpler, cleaner and more agile procurement process,” commented Andy Bruen, Strategic Relationship Manager at Softcat.

“Softcat looks forward to continuing its journey of delivering genuine value and procurement efficiency to ComIT 2 customers. This framework is accessible to customers in the UK’s health and wider public sector market places.”

Customers will also gain access to feasibility studies and proof of concepts, full system design supply and implementation, application development, cloud transformation, cybersecurity, as well as security consultancy and services.

The move builds upon Softcat’s established reputation within the public sector and expertise in delivering tailored ICT solutions. In 2019, the reseller has been named as CRN’s Public Sector Reseller of the Year, as well as Microsoft’s #1 UK Partner and #1 UK Public Sector Partner.

“We’re proud and excited to have Softcat join HTE’s new ICT Solutions framework,” said Phil Barrington, director of ICT Solutions at HTE. “Softcat’s appointment formally continues the fantastic relationship we have built but also strengthens HTE’s offer as a healthcare solutions provider.”
