Kyocera Mita has been approved as a supplier of printers, software and managed services by the National Educational Printer Agreement (NEPA) framework giving the vendor the chance to sell to Universities and colleges over the next four years.
The vendor is going to be working with Insight, XMA and Annodata to deliver the products and services to the six national buying consortia that are covered by the framework.
Elaine Hewitt, public sector consultant at Kyocera Mita, said that the partners it had highlighted as ones it would be working with had a solid experience selling into the education sector: "Purchasers can be confident that they will meet their targets for profitability, reliability and cost-reductions."
She added that it would also be offering consultancy and support and was confident that with its environmental credentials it would be able to demonstrate added value to NEPA.
Mark Hayter, agreement manager at NEPA, said that it had made the signing to provide members of the consortia the chance to get access to products that offered good value and were green.
"This will enable them to achieve their goals for best value procurement," he added.
