James Breakell, D-Tech International’s UK Managing Director, comments:
“Holding simultaneous positions on both the APUC and ESPO frameworks is great recognition for D-Tech’s solutions. D-Tech’s independent status places us in a position where we are able to offer a range of top value products without having to compromise our creativity, a benefit that is eclipsed only by our excellent customer service.
“Our two-year partnership with APUC promises to help optimise Scotland’s investment in higher education institutions, including universities and colleges- an important value which D-Tech and APUC both share. While our position on ESPO 350_19 Framework allows D-Tech to enable organisations to deliver reduced queuing and waiting times, improved access and longer opening hours and ultimately providing an enhanced level of service to customers via our industry-leading range of self-service kiosks, 24-hour vending and lending, security solutions, staff stations, inventory and labels.”
