Save with KCS

Are you paying too much?

Choosing Multi-functional Devices (MFDs) is an area that’s difficult to get right, but KCS will help make it easy for you. Schools often find themselves paying too much or experiencing contractual difficulties when it comes to the procurement process, but this CBC framework agreement, managed by KCS, offers a safe and OJEU-compliant route to supply and can save you money by leveraging the aggregated spend of over 30,000 public sector contracts.

Tips to protect your school:

  • Make sure the contract you sign is an ‘operating lease’, not a ‘finance lease’
  • Look out for extra charges such as termination fees, collection charges or delivery costs
  • Some contracts will charge you extra for A3 copying
  • Be aware of termination clauses that may lock you into a further period
