East of England Ambulance Service has solved their triple corporate, operational and IT procurement strategies in one package via Circular Computing.
The East of England Ambulance Service operates as an emergency service within the East of England NHS trust. They respond directly to emergency (999) calls on a 24/7 basis, handling a high call volume.
Like many companies, the East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST) were affected by the lack of availability of ‘new product’ in the market, and were seeking a fast turnaround.
They required robust and effective devices to deliver the crucial needs of the emergency service, such as fielding 999 calls – and they sought to generate some cost savings that could be passed on to direct patient care.
As they run a crucial, front-line emergency service, EEAST wanted to be sure that the tech provided was up to the rigours of such tasks and could be delivered on time. So they sought to discover if sustainable IT was robust enough to deal with their demands.
EEAST initially engaged with a “pre-market exploratory pilot” to test the consistency, capability and performance of Dell Latitude E5470 units, before committing to wider usage. Through its due diligence, EEAST were satisfied with the laptop provision, the speed and delivery of service and the
Neil Godfrey, Deputy Chief Information Officer remarked, “From initial engagement with the team at Circular Computing, to beginning the pilot, was a two-week process.”
“The pilot allowed us to confirm what we suspected all along – that a remanufactured product, whilst not at the very cutting edge of technology, is robust and resilient enough to deliver what we need in operations and at the front line of emergency services. The product looks, feels, and performs like new. Circular Computing have broken the mould in reclassifying products.”
