a London Based International Language School - Mobile Tender Project
Kaplan is an international language school with complex mobile phone requirements. Their staff travel throughout the world, sometimes at very short notice and it is imperative they have access to reliable mobile devices and connections at all times, without worrying about cost or connectivity issues.
Netpoint Solutions conducted a thorough audit of Kaplan’s mobile telephony, reviewing contracts, devices and data usage. They then used this information to negotiate with Kaplan’s suppliers to obtain the best mobile solutions at highly competitive rates.
This has resulted in considerable savings for Kaplan, in terms of direct costs and in time saved. In addition to negotiating a new deal Netpoint Solutions will continue to monitor usage and rates to ensure that Kaplan is always on the best tariff throughout the course of their new contract.
The Savings Gained
“Netpoint Solutions were able to realise
savings and benefits that we could not have
hoped to gain without their assistance.
We would definitely recommend them.”

→ UK to International Rates reduced by an average of 80%

→ Removal of Remaining Spend Liability (circa £20k)
Additionally, Kaplan now own the devices at the end of the contract
and they have the ability to track marketing changes / reductions
and change tariff without penalty.
