Print specialist Brother has selected Insight as a commodity print partner to sell and support its products in the further and higher education market under the National Educational Printer Agreement (NEPA).
The agreement adds to existing deals that Insight has in place with competitors Canon and Kyocera Mita.
The two-year agreement will see Insight market commodity print schemes through a landing page on its own website where education buyers will be able to view promotional collateral and place orders.
Brother senior business manager Michelle Molloy said Insight had been selected in view of its ability to deliver "real cost efficiences to higher and further education establishments when it comes to procurement".
Added Insight public sector business development director Guy Beaudin: "The OEMs selected Insight because we have ltos of experience in the education sector, as well as a well-developed supply chain and substantial inventory.
"A university can call us before 5pm and get the solutions they need the following morning. It's all about the service we provide and the scale we have, which enables us to be typically less expensive," he said.
