Customer Case Studies
‘We secured savings of 65% by taking part in the mobile voice and data services aggregation, which was a huge benefit to us as budgets continue to be cut. Not only did we save money, but resource was also freed up as CCS ran the procurement for us, meaning we had more time to spend on other important projects which proved invaluable. We were also able to agree pricing for the data bundle, securing data usage for the future meaning there will be no hidden charges.’
Dundee and Angus College:
‘We are very pleased with the savings achieved, which are significantly more than we anticipated and are looking forward to these being realised over the course of the contract. With ever-tightening budgets, we’d have no hesitation in looking at future aggregation opportunities following this positive experience.’
Our Data and Application Solutions (DAS) agreement is now live and has been designed to provide software led technology solutions or applications that support your (often business critical) horizontal back office systems and data needs.
DAS replaces our Local Authority Software Applications (LASA) and Corporate Software Solutions (CSS) agreements, with specific lots in the new DAS framework tailored to local authorities:
- Lot 2a: Revenue and benefit systems, payment processes, civil enforcement systems
- Lot 2b: Environmental health, property and housing management, planning enforcement, licensing, waste management
- Lot 2c: Library solutions, electoral, registrar systems, sports and recreation, burials and crematoria solutions
- Lot 3c: Social care case management, social care finances, home care
How can you make even greater savings?
We offer a free of charge service to customers (UK public bodies) to bring together requirements from multiple organisations across the country, which encourages suppliers to offer significant discounts and creates greater value for money for local authorities.
How can you take part?
If you’re a local authority, simply let us know what you require from the DAS agreement and we will add it to our programme of current aggregation opportunities if enough interest is expressed.

We run a series of vehicle eAuctions a year as by combining customer requirements we can help organisations make great savings on the whole life costs of vehicles – whether you need 1 or 1,000. We do this by using standardised vehicle specifications and our bulk buying power to make your requirements more attractive to suppliers, meaning customers can save as much as 40% on manufacturer’s retail price. Our eAuctions are run under lots 1 and 2 of the Vehicle Purchase framework. Any volume or vehicle type can be considered, and we can also help you if you want to lease rather than buy vehicles. To find out more about getting involved please get in touch – simply tick the aggregation box and quote Fleet eAuctions.
