Fujitsu secures a place on G-Cloud 6
All public sector bodies can now buy from an increased number of Fujitsu standardised offerings.
London, 04 February, 2015: The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has confirmed that Fujitsu has been awarded a place on all four lots of G-Cloud 6, the latest iteration of the G-Cloud framework. Fujitsu now has a total of 71 standardised offerings available, 10 more than before on G-Cloud 5, demonstrating the company’s continued support for the initiative.
As Government consolidates the number of large IT frameworks and moves to Government as a Platform (GaaP) in addition to Service Integration and Management (SIAM) / towers models of procurement, Fujitsu expects the demand for services through G-Cloud and the Government’s Digital Marketplace to increase.
“Fujitsu has been a supplier of G-Cloud services since its inception in 2012 and we are proud to be awarded a place on the latest iteration. Fujitsu has seen a gradual uptake for its offerings using G-Cloud most recently to renew a contract for our e-Document and Records Management as a Service (EDRMaaS).” said Steven Cox, Vice President, Public Sector at Fujitsu UK & Ireland.
“G-Cloud 6 and the Digital Marketplace will likely represent a tipping point and a cultural shift in procurement for central as well as local government. All public sector organisations can buy services from Fujitsu benefitting from for example, pricing on a per user basis, improved price transparency and shorter contract periods. G-Cloud 6 and the Government’s Digital Marketplace will reduce the time taken to buy services compared to other frameworks, helping to reduce the risk to Government and saving taxpayers’ money.”
With standardised offerings from cyber security and secure hosting to bring your own device (BYOD), unified communications and shared services, public sector organisations can choose from a broad range of Fujitsu services across all four lots of the framework. All of the services and how to procure them through the Digital Marketplace are detailed in Fujitsu’s Simple Guide to G-Cloud.
