NHS saves £5m on MEMORY STICKS

And the ones it has bought are encrypted

By Jason Stamper Blog

The NHS has saved an astonishing £5m just by buying cheaper encrypted memory sticks and related IT peripherals, according to technology services provider, Probrand.

As part of a sole supplier partnership, Probrand has been delivering encrypted SafeXs USB devices at specialist framework prices via its online portal,

The site uses CIPS accredited technology to update and compare prices and stock on around 150,000 products from 2,500 manufacturers on a daily basis and users buy directly from the website. It claims that over four years it has delivered cashable savings to the NHS of £5m on purchase price and reduced procurement time thanks to its best practice process.

The SafeXs sticks are government approved. Probrand says with the EU looking to mandate fines of 1 million Euro for data losses, public sector organisations are reaching for tried and trusted military grade SafeXs protection and making huge savings at the same time.

Probrand sales manager, Richard Hunter-Rice, said: "Information Governance is critical in private and public sector organisations, with government fines for blatant non-compliance. Equally, achieving best value amidst a volatile supply chain where price and stock fluctuate daily, demands efficient procurement at transparent framework margins."
