We’re delighted to announce that EventMAP have now been appointed to the Crown Commercial Services’ new G-Cloud 10 procurement framework.
It’s great news for the company as it means that we’ll be able to offer our Optime Scheduling Cloud suite of products more widely to public sector organisations within the UK – building on our current successes within policing, healthcare and defence.
What is G-Cloud 10?
The G-Cloud 10 framework, which goes live on 2nd July, is a public sector digital marketplace for cloud product suppliers that will immediately supersede the previous G-Cloud 9 framework. It will be run as a collaboration between the Government Digital Service and the Crown Commercial Service and is operated through the Digital Marketplace.
The framework aims to provide a more level playing field for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access public sector work. Since the start of G-Cloud, almost £3 billion has been spent through the framework, with 48% of that going to SMEs. It’s will also be of great benefit for government procurers as it will give them much easier, cost effective access to the most appropriate cloud products for their needs.
The framework has changed the way in which public sector organisations can purchase information and communications technology (ICT). As we’ll now be one of those service providers, public sector procurers will be to access EventMAP software and services without the need to go through a full tender process – making the whole process of using our leading-edge technology much simpler.
Commenting on the news, Vernon Chapman, EventMAP Marketing Director, said “With the shift towards more cloud-based delivery of software solutions, this is a natural move in making our software and services available to our current and future clients”.
