We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our bid to supply online survey services through G-Cloud 8. The G-Cloud Framework, governed by The Crown Commercial Service (CCS), means that our services are more widely available among public sector organisations under the Software as a Service (SaaS) category. Read on to find out more…
The CCS acts on behalf of the Crown to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity. The G-Cloud Services agreement supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government, offering public sector customers increased data security, improved availability and significant cost savings.
Benefits of being a G-Cloud 8 Supplier
G-Cloud is designed to drive mainstream adoption of cloud-based services by government organisations and local authorities looking for cost-efficient, competitive and custom-built solutions. Public sector bodies are attracted to us because we are one of the only survey software providers on the web to guarantee that user data is stored securely on UK/EU servers, which minimises human error or the potential for security breaches of sensitive data. Data security is of paramount important to us; we are ISO27001 certified and registered under the Data Protection Act.
The G-Cloud Services agreement is fully EU compliant and provides easy access to the user-friendly yet advanced online survey software that we provide. The software allows public sector customers to gather the information they need to make important decisions, saving them time and money.
Fundamentally, the G-Cloud Framework and CloudStore make it easier for buying organisations to assess the wide range of services available from an extensive list of suppliers. They also provide a quick, compliant and transparent means of awarding a contract and placing an order.
The G-Cloud Framework can be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations. The Agreement allows all public sector organisations to buy cloud services through a framework that is compliant and regularly refreshed to ensure the best that the market has to offer is available.
The team here at SmartSurvey will continue to lead the way in helping government agencies make the switch from traditional or offline data collection methods to fully secure, managed and hosted online solutions.
