Procurement Management

A lot of companies find it quite challenging to choose the best products and software for their digital workplaces: Which technology best meet the requirements? What needs to be considered in terms of licensing? How can we stick to our budget? How can we manage all the vendors we procure IT from?

There is another way: Agilant partners with our clients to digitally reinvent their supply chain, optimize workflow and streamline procurement operations. The result? Greater visibility, more platform integration and continuous innovation. We develop intelligent supply chain and operations that are fast, flexible and fit for the future.  Our flexible multivendor procurement solutions are designed to take the worry away from your procurement teams by advising you and recommend products and licenses that are suitable for your chosen vendors and workplace solutions. You can be sure that you’ll receive the best, un-biased advice and support from our highly experienced and vendor-certified employees.

Web-based “B2B” Commerce

Agilant offers more than 70,000 hardware and software products in total, spanning all aspects of IT. Our B2B e-commerce capability shines the spotlight not so much on the equipment itself, but on meeting the needs of your staff. Through our eCommerce site, clients can engage in web-based purchasing, tracking, reporting, and consultation while taking advantage of the beneficial pricing agreements. This provides a virtually transparent supply chain for the procurement process enabling a reduction in the overall total cost of acquisition.

We guarantee that your hardware will be delivered imaged and asset tagged with exceptional, professional service.

E-Rate Solutions

The Schools and Libraries Program supports connectivity – the conduit or pipeline for communications using telecommunications services and/or the Internet. Funding is requested under four categories of service: telecommunications services, Internet access, internal connections, and basic maintenance of internal connections. Discounts for support depend on the level of poverty and the urban/rural status of the population served and range from 20% to 90% of the costs of eligible services. Eligible schools, school districts and libraries may apply individually or as part of a consortium.
