boxxe has won a three-year contract worth £291 million to manage the Ministry of Defence (MoD)’s Microsoft Enterprise Licensing.

The IT service provider says that being awarded one of the largest Microsoft deals in the UK public sector proves its ability to support and manage the “complex and critical agreement as it assumes greater importance.”

Claiming a 30 year partnership with the MoD, the partnership will see boxxe use its Licence Management Platform and specialist Microsoft resources to support and manage operations. It adds that its “industry expertise and deep understanding of the defence sector’s needs enables them to respond to any service issues with the necessary flexibility and agility required by the MoD.”

“The MoD’s modernisation and transformation programmes place technology at their heart and the need to maximise its potential has never been greater,” said Rob Hennessey, head of defence, national security and healthcare sales, boxxe. “boxxe’s skills, experience and expertise is focused on facilitating this, and we are delighted to have this opportunity to further support the MoD.”

The firm says the contract will also strengthen its growing relationship with Microsoft. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, boxxe specialises in providing licence management, expertise and resources around Microsoft’s solutions.

boxxe will work with the MoD team “to ensure every department can take advantage of this valuable investment.

“Available to other customers across the Defence sector, boxxe’s investment into specialist services and products, such as Defence Digital, continues to drive digital transformation across a variety of organisations, allowing teams to consume technology in a uniquely user-friendly and convenient way,” the company added in a statement.
