Official Crown Commercial Supplier Amicus ITS, has scored a notable success with the announcement that the Company has had a record total of 17 cloud technology services accepted onto the UK Government’s G-Cloud framework.
This framework, run by the Government’s Crown Commercial Service, provides a central, transparent and pre-compliant portal for public sector and healthcare organisations across England and Wales to procure wide ranging technology solutions, in confidence, using trusted partners – and saving money for the taxpayer. G-Cloud 10 went live on 2nd July.
The project was overseen by Marketing Manager, Lindsay Burden. “We only had five weeks to select and complete all 17 cloud service listings. G-Cloud 10 is a very pure form of procurement for our public sector customers and a great compliment to the services listed in our Service Catalogue. We recognised in 2017 that we needed to extend our Managed Services and we have done this by strengthening our inhouse teams and forging strong alliances with leading technology experts. These include Netwrix, Authlogics and Think Marble in the security sector, our sister back up specialist company Curatrix Technologies, as well as key Government UK hosting provider UKCloud. We are all thrilled that we’ve had 100% success with this project with all 17 services being approved. It really shows the depth of what we can deliver today”.
Sales Director Les Keen commented: “Amicus ITS has a host of public sector and NHS customers throughout England so we know the pressures they face. Our experienced Bid Team in Sales & Marketing, work across a variety of IT frameworks. The G-Cloud 10 framework is a perfect example of the private sector bringing best-in-market technology and support to work in partnership with the public sector to bring about efficiencies and positive change to a cash-strapped sector. With Brexit fast approaching, there has never been a more important time for public sector organisations to have trusted routes to procurement offering transparency and confidentiality. Many bodies are grappling with legacy IT infrastructures and trying to keep pace with the day-to-day tasks and ‘keeping the lights on’ and their data secure. They are time short and often in need of outside expert help to create the right solutions. Our new managed cloud service offerings include a raft of security services and some are run in conjunction with key specialist technology partners. Our services can be selected at will and have the potential to release inhouse IT teams to focus on project work, knowing their IT is in safe hands with us”.
