SBA goes live!

 

In October 2012 the South East Grid for Learning, launched the SEGfL Buying Association (SBA).

 

The SBA is a new service being offered to all schools within the South East Grid for Learning, specifically designed to save your school money when purchasing software licences, with Softcat's specialist skills and SEGfL's power of aggregation combining to attract substantial discounts for the region's schools.
