Woking, Surrey: SFW has announced that it has achieved supplier status on the G-Cloud 4 Framework, with 27 offerings available across the Software as a Service (SaaS), Specialist Cloud Services (SCS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) lots. This follows SFW’s previous success on G-Cloud iii and G-Cloud ii frameworks. The UK Government G-Cloud 4 framework enables the rapid sourcing and deployment of secure, competitively priced cloud services to over 30,000 organisations in the UK public sector.

 

In this latest iteration of the G-Cloud Framework, key products including SFW Case Management Platform, SFW Collaboration Platform and SFW Applications Support Management have been retained and a number of others introduced. The new introductions include the SFW Readiness Assessment - Digital by Default Service Standard which allows Public Sector organisations to benchmark themselves against the Standard and recommends next actions to ensure compliance.

In addition, SFW is also offering, through IL2 and IL3 accredited cloud hosting partner Skyscape, SFW Skyscape Managed Cloud Infrastructure and SFW Skyscape Self-Service Infrastructure, IL2 and IL3. These new services ensure that clients can enjoy all the flexibility of cloud solutions, securely.

Peter Hornsby, SFW Director said: “It’s great that SFW has achieved supplier status on the G-Cloud Framework for the third time. SFW has already enjoyed a significant number of sales through this channel, 0.8% (£495.7k) by value and 2% (72) by volume of all Cloudstore sales to date. Public Sector IT procurement is in a new era, with the need to make savings shifting the approach towards Cloud First, commoditised services and rationalised infrastructure. SFW’s inclusion in G4 not only shows that SFW’s products and services are in line with this approach but, as sales to date show, they are also relevant.”

He added: “Public sector has been the key focus area for SFW since 2000, and over 80% of SFW’s clients are Public Sector organisations. G-Cloud is a particularly important platform for SMEs like SFW to interact with and sell to the Public Sector - to date, about 65% of spend from the G-Cloud is with SMEs. SFW’s presence on G-Cloud 4 means Public Sector Clients can continue to source SFW’s offerings quickly, and at a lower overall procurement cost, because the tendering requirements have already been undertaken. With SFW’s increased offering portfolio for G-Cloud and its presence on the ConsultancyONE framework, it’s now easier than ever to get timely, cost-effective quality services from SFW.”
