York-based tech company boxxe (pronounced ‘boxxie’), previously known as SBL, has selected Agilitas to provide multi-vendor maintenance and professional services to customers in the public and private sectors.
Available as part of boxxe’s Platform and Workplace technology offerings, the services include the provision of replacement parts and engineering resource for workplace devices, e.g. desktops and laptops, and for critical server, storage and networking infrastructure to an agreed SLA.
Agilitas was selected because its vendor-agnostic approach enables boxxe to consolidate multiple service contracts and SLAs on a single support contract for cost savings and reduced administration.
Launched on September 1, boxxe is the new name and identity for technology company SBL, which was acquired one year ago by Phil Doye, former majority owner of Kelway, which he sold to CDW.
As well as rebranding the technology provider, best known as an IT reseller to the public sector, Doye is extending its reach into the corporate market and ramping up investment in technology, industry services and customer-facing digital platforms.
Forecast to achieve revenues of over £200 million this financial year, boxxe offers digital transformation solutions in five technology hubs supported by strategic consultancy. These are the platform hub, workplace hub, security, hub, data hub and digital hub.
