Obtaining quotes/pricelists for Primaries
We currently use mostly Viglen and Ergo for all new equipment in all of our Primary schools that our company supports and we are reasonably happy with them. The main reason we use them is because we get regular pricelists sent though a couple times a year that we each carry around so that as soon as a school starts asking we can give them some options there and then, and the school can order direct with them.
With the latest schools we started supporting just over a year ago I'm seeing a lot of Dell, Lenovo and Stone machines around and they all seem to be fantastic! I have tried to contact our area manager at Dell but getting a reply from him is like getting blood out of a stone. I contacted Stone through their contact form on their website and didn't get a reply either.
My question is this - how do you guys go about getting pricing from manufacturers? The pricelist method works brilliant for our scenario but I can't imagine that all manufacturers would currently do this.
