Stone Group is the latest reseller to bag a place on the new higher education framework for selling Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) hardware and  services.

The specialist ICT services provider to the public sector has been appointed to supply ‘Computer Equipment Using an Apple Operating System’. The framework has been awarded to only four UK resellers; Stone Group, AcademiaXMA and Insight – this means they can officially supply Apple hardware, associated peripherals and value added services to higher education institutions throughout the UK.

Each reseller was scored on four categories; price, quality, sustainability and service, meaning that member institutions may choose to do all business with the supplier that scored highest in the tender evaluation. Stone Group secured the highest score on every category and therefore its overall weighted score is the highest attained.

Simon Harbridge, CEO of Stone Group, is quick to point to Stone’s high score on the assessment: “We are thrilled not only to be part of this new framework but also to have scored the highest of all resellers on the evaluation criteria,” he comments.

“This framework is a game-changer for us as higher education institutions can now work directly with us as universities themselves have verified through a robust process that we cannot be beaten on price, quality, sustainability or service so there is no need for them to undertake costly procurement exercises as they know in advance that we have the highest attained scores in all categories. We look forward to working with the market more closely and helping them with their future Apple needs.”
