    Ooh, forgot Supplies for Schools, very good for projector bulbs, but as we are 90% Casio projectors now we don't use them a great deal anymore.

    In no particular order. 😉
    AV partsmaster
    Insight
    LDD
    Millgate
    Misco
    Stone
    Viglen
    XMA (just had some sort of merger with viglen, i think Western Group bought viglen.)
    I think these are all my major suppliers.
    There are a few others that i send quotes to but last few times I've bought at less than their buying price.

    Probrand
    Softcat
    Westwood Associates

    Ebuyer - trade account with online ordering/credit makes it easy to spec up and other things

    Are all my first point of contact for most things. I like them mainly because I can email them all Ebuyer/Amazon or other site links and get better quote back in minutes or they tell me deal is good price and to go with it.

    I can be pretty demanding, i don't like people coming back to me with a 'better' price. I normally email out at least 3 for anything over £100.
    All my account managers now know that they need to supply their best price first. Saves me days of going back and forth.

    We do a lot of iPad stuff in school too and we've just stayed using a company called JustAskEden for repairs. Doing us a great price on screen replacements.
    They are based just outside of Leeds and do pick up and drop off.

    idns.co.uk are worth a look at too.

    I tend to use a few suppliers, as each is good in their own way.

    AMC Computer Supplies tend to be great for us when it comes to small purchases because of the free delivery. They always beat Misco.

    Didn't realise Millgate did free delivery.

    I will throw in CCL. I only use online shops as account managers can be a bit OTT

    I've found that i always get a cheaper price when dealing with an account manager. Even from the likes of Misco and insight, is always worth sending the link to get the better price.

    Yeah I agree. Even if you just send links or part codes, you'll get a better price than buying from the web
