I had an urgent IT project and needed a quick and easy way to buy. I went out to four suppliers who provide framework pricing, which often consumes a lot of time manually comparing and gathering price and stock information.
Probrand’s marketplace enabled me to quickly search 300,000 products and services showing live price and stock from multiple suppliers in one place. I could review all personalised framework pricing and immediately see savings over standard pricing as well as other special discounts in the channel.
Real-time price comparison across suppliers on every product saved me time and assured me I was getting the best possible price in the market. And, the large order discount feature saved us £170,000 on one order alone.

Probrand’s offering was head and shoulders above the others. Its head office team was substantial, with different teams for functions like databases, infrastructure, and development.
Probrand’s more realistic specification on the server migration project saved the company £20,000 in hardware and running costs. It cut the server count at Coleshill from five to three. The storage auditing project negated the need for additional storage substantially extending the life of the existing solution. We no longer risk losing critical knowledge through staff attrition. Probrand’s expert team both on and off-site provides coverage during sickness and holidays, meaning that The Works is never without the expertise and capability it needs.

After Probrand had finished with our server rack, the cabling was neat and organized and we were only using the physical servers we needed. Everything felt lean and efficient.
Now that Probrand has installed on-site backup appliances with cloud replication, we feel more confident that our data is properly protected from physical or logical disasters.
Employees used to be embarrassed when speaking to customers on the phone because they’d have to wait for Alarm Master to respond before they could continue. Thanks to Probrand’s server infrastructure, there are no more awkward silences.
This whole experience proves that sometimes buying on price alone is a false economy. Probrand’s product knowledge has saved us thousands in ongoing support costs while providing us with a better service.

Probrand's Marketplace offers a top service with quick responses to questions, friendly account managers to consult and next day delivery on SafeXs orders. Overall Probrand's Marketplace exceeded our expectations and I would recommend their services to others.

If I want to make a purchase then Probrand's Marketplace will be the first place I look. I know that nine times out of ten, I will get the best price available.

Probrand is an amazing partner. I realised quickly that they’re very competent in this area of virtualised servers and they’re creative approach to go beyond the brief has delivered value for money. I’ve been really happy with the support I’ve received and I can honestly say they’ve always been a joy to work with.

Kevin Wright, IT manager
Calypso

Even when we needed to bolt-on a number of systems to the network, such as wireless connectivity or cashless catering, nothing was ever a problem. This is where Probrand’s knowledge of the vendor market proved invaluable – if there was a complication, they always knew who to contact to get the answer.
We will save about £90,000 in the first year because of this transition. I believe this is because Probrand saw our requirements in a more straightforward, sensible way. This has enabled us to save money, and with such a quick return on investment, appointing Probrand as our preferred partner was a no-brainer.

Waingels College

Probrand's approach is delivering a better maintained and optimised system that has improved staff productivity and laid solid foundations for growth. Fundamentally, with Probrand we have been able to reduce and control our IT overhead more efficiently, eliminate unnecessary downtime, maximise our IT estate and reduce cost of ownership.
This is the first time we have used an outsourced and scaleable IT support function and it is the best decision we could have made given our growth forecast. We have a dedicated and extremely knowledgeable technical account team that truly understands our business and how it needs to operate. The Probrand IT Services team supports us as an IT department should but without holidays or sick days becoming an issue – they are ever-present.
Probrand is an extension to our business and operates with the attention to detail and professionalism we would expect of our own employees.
