Here at CX-Consultants (Part of Zeela Consulting Ltd) we're proud to announce our first entry into G-Cloud 12 and the Digital Marketplace. The framework supports public sector organisations to easily find and buy cloud computing services, reducing the often complex procurement process that SME’s are likely to have previously experienced.
With years of CRM experience, we were keen to get on board to help and use that knowledge. We've recently gained Cyber Security certification, and look forward to shortly being accredited under ISO27001 and 9001.
About G-Cloud and the Digital Marketplace
G-cloud is a Framework Agreement operated by Crown Commercial Services on behalf of the cabinet office and HM Treasury. The framework provides fast and controlled access for public sector organisation’s including Central and Local Government, Not for Profit Organisations, Schools, Colleges, The NHS, Police and Fire and Ambulance Services.
G-Cloud is focused on IT solutions – all cloud based due to the strategic goal to help the UK public sector adopt a “cloud first approach” to technology, specifically focusing on hosting, software and support. The G-Cloud framework will enable public sector procurement teams to quickly and easily find cloud computing services on the publicly accessible portal. As part of the framework agreement, public sector organisations can call off solutions on demand without having to go through a lengthy full tender process.
The Digital Marketplace is transforming the way government buys technology and digital services by opening the market up to small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) suppliers – 70% fall into this category. A total of 3.2 billion has been spent through the digital marketplace in just under 6 years, of which 48% is spent with SMEs.
