Softcat, a provider of software licensing, hardware, security and related IT services, and Chevin Fleet Solutions have joined forces in order to better serve the UK’s public sector.
The partnership will now allow Chevin to sell its FleetWave and RoadBASE products and services into public sector customers under the terms of the Buying Solutions agreement as a Softcat approved sub-contractor.
As well as a direct route for Chevin to increase its already growing presence in the ‘blue light’ services, local authority and national government markets, this agreement will mean Softcat can broaden its offering and provide more integrated solutions than was previously possible.
Mark Brazington, partner alliance manager at Softcat, said: “Chevin’s on and offline fleet management software and support will add to our existing portfolio of services aimed at the public sector, bridging a gap with high-end solutions that fit with our dedication to excellent quality products and service levels.
“Softcat has always been dedicated to giving the public sector the opportunity to procure the best software and associated expertise available, and the purpose of this partnership is very much in that tradition.”
Kevin Hudson, sales manager at Chevin Fleet Solutions, added: “Softcat ticked all the boxes for Chevin, and thankfully recognised the key benefits that FleetWave and RoadBASE would bring to its already market leading software and consultancy services.”
The partnership between the two companies will be formally unveiled at the National Association of Police Fleet Managers’ Conference in September.
