IT lifecycle management company Network 2 Supplies (N2S) has hailed a “huge endorsement” after securing accreditation form software giant Microsoft.

N2S, which is based in Bury St Edmunds, has successfully applied to join the Microsoft Refurbisher Program, enabling it to offer high quality refurbished PCs to businesses, public sector organisations and the education sector.

As part of the agreement N2S is also able to sell PCs installed with Microsoft software to voluntary and not-for-profit organisations at reduced prices.

N2S director Andy Gomarsall said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received Microsoft accreditation; it is a huge endorsement.

“There are very strict criteria to being awarded this accreditation, which include proving our leading position in our sector and providing evidence of excellence in the services we deliver.

“Becoming a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher will open up new lines of business to us and will become a valuable development in our overall business operation.

“Previously, when dealing with our clients’ redundant or decommissioned PCs we could refurbish them for sell-on, however they had no software.

“Now we can refurbish them and install Microsoft software, making them instantly useable, more valuable and more attractive to potential buyers.”

The Microsoft development rounds off a successful year for N2S.

Earlier in the year it sealed two significant new contracts worth an additional £1million a year, and also installed a £250,000 cable granulation plant, enabling it to recycle all telecoms and IT elements and bringing in significant new revenue.

“These are really exciting times at N2S, in the past couple of years we have established ourselves as an international player and are now able to move into global markets,” added Mr Gomarsall.
