Carillion Communications selected as a G-Cloud 12 supplier
Carillion Communications has been selected as a supplier on the G-Cloud 12 framework Digital Marketplace, which is managed by the Crown Commercial Services (CCS).
The framework is designed to help public organisations access cloud computing services. Carillion MD Dee Reed said, "This is a landmark win for the business on our first attempt and has taken a huge amount of work, which we hope will benefit other areas of our business moving forward."
The framework has proved to be an innovative procurement initiative for public sector bodies that use cloud computing, including central government, local government and key sectors such as the emergency services. Operated by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), the framework encourages the adoption of cloud-based IT services across the public sector. It allows suppliers and contractors to bid for new technologies and services more efficiently, without the need to enter the full tender process.
G-Cloud has realised over £5 billion of business for suppliers and provides a route to market for SMEs to engage with public sector departments. Carillion will now be able to provide its device management software service to UK public sector organisations through the UK Government’s secure online store, the Digital Marketplace. It allows supported devices across an enterprise to be managed and configured from one central location in the cloud.
