Proact awarded place on G-Cloud 9 framework to provide cloud services to UK public sector
Leading data centre and cloud services provider Proact can now offer its expertise and solutions under the UK Government’s latest G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud 9. Available since 22nd May 2017, Proact has successfully obtained a place on the framework’s three lots: Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software and Cloud Support.
Public sector organisations across the UK will be able to benefit from Proact’s heritage of success when it comes to transforming businesses with cloud solutions – with the cloud service enabler offering a total of 33 cloud-based services across G-Cloud 9’s three lots.
Under this framework, by the Crown Commercial Service, the cloud service enabler can offer its latest solutions and services including Proact’s full security platform as well as Proact Hybrid Cloud solutions. With solutions underpinned by the latest technological innovations and in-line with current IT trends, public sector customers can now take advantage of the best solutions available on the market, complemented by Proact’s specialist knowledge.
Proact has previously been part of the G-Cloud 7 and G-Cloud 8 frameworks and is further cementing its place as a trusted advisor in the public sector arena. The inclusion on G-Cloud 9 not only demonstrates Proact’s proven credibility amongst public sector customers, but provides exciting opportunities with both new and existing customers to drive IT innovation by using cloud technology.
All G-Cloud 9 services are available via the Digital Marketplace, an online resource that allows public sector customers to easily find cloud technology and specialist services for digital projects. Public sector customers (including Government departments, NHS organisations and Government agencies) can be reassured that they’re purchasing high quality services with no hidden charges and no contractual ‘lockin’.
G-Cloud frameworks are frequently re-tendered to ensure that they contain the latest services and suppliers. G-Cloud 9 follows a new lot structure that aims to better define which lot each service will belong to. Additionally, suppliers have been asked to provide improved detail about their offerings, especially relating to security.
Jason Clark, CEO and President at Proact, says: “We are delighted to have extended our services offering on the new iteration of G-Cloud to help public sector customers across the UK answer the complex challenges they have in the digital transformation of public services.
“With a specialist team covering all aspects of the sector across the whole of mainland UK, Proact's services on G-Cloud 9 can support UK public sector organisations in their digital transformation journeys with flexible, affordable and on-demand services and solutions that can help provide public services in a more effective, more efficient and lower cost way to the taxpayer.
