Esendex has been accredited as a supplier on the G-Cloud 5 framework
Esendex, a leading provider of mission-critical application-to-person SMS services to businesses, has now been accredited as an approved supplier on the G-Cloud 5 Framework. Their services are now available in the Cloud Store, the place to find cloud services approved by HM Government. Esendex has already had their first purchase through G-Cloud by a central government department.
G-Cloud is designed to benefit the public sector by providing a facility for public sector organisations to quickly and easily purchase cloud-based services.
Commenting on the accreditation, Sales and Marketing Director, Richard Tomlinson said:
“Delivering solutions to the public sector is an area in which we specialise in, so having been awarded a place on G-Cloud is a great achievement for us. We’re now able to expand our offering to our customers, meaning they can now buy our services without the time consuming and expensive procurement processes.”
Not only does this development bring SMS services to organisations quicker and at a lower procurement cost but it also contributes to the government’s “Digital by Default” initiative.
Tony Singleton G-Cloud and digital commercial programme director at the Government Digital Service reiterated the government's intention to drive digital innovation within government using the G-Cloud framework.
Writing on his blog, he said:
“I have heard it said that G-Cloud has become business as usual. How I dislike that phrase, business as usual.
“It suggest to me that it’s job done, sit back, put your feet up. No, it is NOT business as usual, there is much to be done in transforming the way IT is not only bought but also consumed across the wider public sector.”
