Frequently Asked Questions
Does Insentra transact directly with end user organizations?
We do not transact directly with end user organizations - we transact exclusively through IT resellers. We can certainly have conversations with you about your requirements and will always ask you to nominate your preferred IT provider. We will then work with your provider to deliver your required project. Our unique model prevents the need for you to onboard us through your procurement channels.
Can I engage directly with and purchase services from Insentra?
Yes, you can engage directly with us to investigate how we can assist you, however, as we are a 100% "through Partner" business, we will work with you to identify your chosen IT provider and will engage them through the process, transacting any projects via your partner. Our model avoids the need to on-board Insentra as a procurement partner or the need for Insentra to be on a government panel contract.
Is Insentra on any government panels?
Insentra is not on any government panels because we will not transact directly with end user clients. The partners we support are typically on any required panels where they are tendering for work.

Our team are trained and certified in various methodologies including Prince2, PMP and Agile.
What does Insentra do when something goes wrong in a project or service?
IT projects can be complicated, and from time to time, things will go wrong.

Then we will work together with you and your Partner to agree a way forward for rapid resolution.
