Hello, welcome to Frugal IT – so glad you are here!!
Alison, Wayne & Dawn started Frugal IT as there was a gap in the market for suppliers specialising in supplying into the Education and Health Sector. We could not find one competitor that concentrated solely on supplying IT equipment and supplies into the Public Sector as their main focus!
Frugal IT was founded in 2011 by sales staff with over 30 years experience in supplying IT & Office Equipment into Schools, Hospitals, Colleges, Doctors Surgeries and Universities. We feel with our collective experience we are able to offer the support and high level of service that our clients are looking for.
When Frugal IT first started to trade, a client with whom we have a good relationship contacted Brother UK directly to ask them to set Frugal IT up as a Public Sector Partner as he wanted to deal with Frugal IT for all the printers purchased for their CCG (this was one of the biggest CCG’s in London). Moving forward, it has mainly been word of mouth from our clients that has helped to build the business for which we will be eternally grateful.
We are now Public Sector Partners with Dell, Brother, Microsoft, Epson, Canon, Samsung, HP, Adobe, Netgear, D-Link, Lenovo, Acer, Fujitsu, Plantronics, Jabra and many more ….
In the future we want to continue to provide the highest levels of service we can, supply a wide range of products to suit our clients ever changing needs and not become like our larger competitors so you are always able to speak to a person. We will always be competitive, we may not be the biggest IT reseller but we do have small overheads which means we can often beat or match prices quoted by our competitors who are often inefficient with many offices to heat and light and warehouses to staff – also with high heat and lighting costs.
“IT Hardware is different from other stuff we buy. It’s big. It’s bulky. Handling IT Hardware is expensive. We saw our competitors driving IT Hardware in circles. Storing it in warehouses. Picking it up and driving it again. These companies are essentially IT Hardware chauffeurs. And chauffeurs are expensive.”
