Steals government deal

 
A lucrative hardware deal supplying a public sector education contract gas gone to an SME supplier at the expense of Dell.

Probrand took the five figure contract away from deal by convincing Coventry Council’s Woodway Park School to switch from Dell to Hewlett-Packard (HP) and saved it 35 per cent on the overall order.
