Advanced Mobile Communications has clinched a five-year contract with Care UK to provide mobile airtime to 4,000 employees via EE’s 4G network.
The deal, which is Advanced Mobile’s largest mobile contract win to date, sees the company provide Care UK with a delivery and support platform and manage Care UK’s mobile fleet, including assets and bills.
Advanced said the contract will bring Care UK ‘significant’ savings over the five year period, with ongoing savings made by continuous tariff reviews.
Chris Griffin, director at Advanced Mobile Communications (pictured), said: ‘We are very pleased to be working in partnership with EE to bring high quality connectivity to Care UK’s teams at very competitive rates. We understand workforce mobilisation and we are a natural partner for a forward thinking organisation such as Care UK.’
James Greenman, group IT director at Care UK, said: ‘Advanced’s team understands the commercial characteristics of the health and social care sector and we are pleased to be working with them to deliver improved mobile access to our colleagues.
‘Although we spoke to various suppliers, we were particularly impressed with Advanced’s expertise. They were able to illustrate clearly the cost benefits and savings of their proposition and we were reassured by the knowledge that the team from Advanced are leading experts in the commercial mobile marketplace.’
Advanced has worked with Care UK since 2006 and provides software solutions which are used across urgent care, residential homes and mental health services. Solutions include Caresys to manage financials, time and attendance and care planning, plus adastra, a clinical patient management system for urgent and unscheduled care.
