Strengths

The Kent Public Service Network offers a range of benefits to suit the needs of public, private, and not-for-profit organisations

Expertise

Our small, dedicated team works exclusively for the Partnership, providing a personal bespoke service from on-boarding to incident management.  You can be confident of making the right choice; we are the interface managing suppliers who provide 24/7/365 monitoring and support.

Security

Our resilient network benefits from the highest levels of security; preventing spam and viruses and blocking attack.  The network is fully PSN compliant and CAS-T accredited.  Our security protocols also enable you to tailor your own corporate standards.

Governance and Decision Making

Partner organisations help shape KPSN by being part of our Management Board, voting where appropriate on policy decisions and the future needs of the network itself. You can choose how much involvement you want, and how much of a part you and your organisation would like to play, with our different membership levels.

Collaboration

As part of a Partnership, you will benefit from regular meetings, forums, and workshops at no extra cost, giving access to a range of experts in different fields such as Education, Health, and Local Authorities.

Pricing Model

As a not-for-profit Partnership, we aim to keep charges as low as possible whilst making provision for the future demands of the network.  Our pricing is based on the number of exchanges required and a contribution to our Core Network with other services charged as they are used (for example data centre storage, voice services etc).  We believe this is the fairest way to offer value for money and allows organisations of any size to join us.

Still not sure?

We understand that not all purchasers of our services will be IT experts and whilst we have excellent technical managers, we have members of the team who will help explain our services in an easy-to-understand way.  Please call us or complete the form for an informal chat about what we offer and how we can support you and your organisation.
