After a comprehensive and rigorous tendering process Damovo has been awarded framework agreements in three Communications Solutions categories.
Damovo's status as an accredited supplier opens up opportunities to provide voice, data and convergent solutions right across the public sector, including central government, local authorities, the NHS, non-departmental bodies, schools and other education providers, charities, utilities and housing trusts.
