Following evaluation by the Crown Commercial Service, agile web and software consultancy Box UK has been accepted onto the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) G-Cloud framework, giving all UK government and public sector organisations access to the specialist cloud and technology services it provides.
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has brought together Government’s central commercial capability into a single organisation, amalgamating Government Procurement Service with other commercial teams from the Cabinet Office and central government departments.
Playing a vital role in helping to protect front-line services, CCS delivers significant and sustainable cost savings for both public sector and taxpayer by providing a compliant route to market for service procurement as well as aggregating Government spend to drive best value. Created in 2014, over the last year (2014/15) the service’s technology team has saved its customers £640 million against a 2009/2010 baseline.
Listed as a supplier within Lot 4 of the RM1557vii G-Cloud framework, Box UK is now able to support public sector organisations in their migration to the cloud with services including user experience consultancy and usability testing, agile coaching, code reviews, quality assurance consulting and behaviour-driven development.
Not only does migrating systems to the cloud deliver significant savings on IT budgets by reducing software running costs and support overheads but it also improves their scalability, facilitating a responsiveness to changing demand that guarantees a continuous and reliable service to customers.
And with Box UK’s track record in both the cloud and the public sector, G-Cloud clients can benefit from a winning combination of established process and cutting-edge digital thinking that enables them to be innovative and disruptive, even given the tight constraints that they must operate within.
All agreements made through the framework are fully EU compliant and save customers the time and money associated with conducting their own procurement exercise. Furthermore, due to the competitive tender process and regular benchmarking activity CCS undertakes, customers are guaranteed access to only the most competitive deals.
Managing Director, Benno Wasserstein comments, “Box UK already has significant experience in the public sector and is pleased to now be able to support even more of these organisations via the G-Cloud framework.”
All G-Cloud services are showcased on the online Digital Marketplace and you can find out more about the software and services available from Box UK by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or speaking to a member of the team at 020 7439 1900.
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to”place for expert commercial and procurement services.
