    print cartridges

    Hi all we currently use inkjets and toners for our cartridges have done for ages they always look after us and we are happy, our bursar wants to use another company and they have tried to beat prices etc with some to and throing is there any particualr company that you use? that we can throw into the pot also is there any mileage in me suggesting that we have a good relationship with IJT we're happy with there stuff etc,

    Another question is there any law during tendering that suggests i can't tell one company the price they need to beat? it has been said that i can't do it as it will become bias???!

    Re: print cartridges

    Its up to your school/buyer to decide what to do.

    Some people ask suppliers for their best blind quote and pick the one that's the cheapest - makes life easy for the buyer and saves the buyer time and effort.

    Others will go to and fro between suppliers asking them to beat the others prices - takes more time but get better prices.

    IME not worth shortening your lifespan by arguing with a bursar on a mission - just lead the horse to the water and let them turn around and go to another pond instead

    regards

    Simon

    Well we have used a variety of companies, such as Manx Print Care, JEM, Supplies for Schools and Office Options.

    They all are cheaper on some things than others.

    I always found that IT Index were cheaper than anyone - though I did have a few issues with after sales services on some hardware.
