Connect IB Appointed G-Cloud 9 Supplier

Connect IB (A RedstoneConnect company) is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its bid to supply cloud hosting, software and support services through G-Cloud 9.

Connect IB joins its sister company, Anders+Kern, on the digital marketplace, where suppliers can find technology or people for digital projects in the public sector.

The G-Cloud Framework Agreement, governed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), allows Connect IB to provide under three lots, Cloud hosting, Cloud software and Cloud support. These services are available to departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector on the Digital Marketplace.

As part of the G-Cloud 9 Framework Agreement, Connect IB will offer services including the deployment, management and running of software and the development of complete digital solutions. Connect IB will also offer support in content management, wayfinding, TIMS and its very own OneSpace solution.

The G-Cloud Framework offers great benefits to buying organisations within the UK public sector by allowing them to procure cloud services that are fully EU compliant and regularly refreshed, therefore ensuring the best that the market has to offer is available.

Examples of those who can use the G-Cloud 9 Framework Agreement include central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

G-Cloud 9 alone provides buyers across the public sector with access to over 19,000 services through 2,800 suppliers meaning increased access to innovation, rapid development and greater agility.

By acting on behalf of the Crown, CCS will ultimately drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity. It will also push the mainstream adoption of cloud-based services by government organisations and local authorities who are looking for cost efficient, competitive and custom built solutions, such as those Connect IB offers.

Keith Jump, CTO of RedstoneConnect commented:  

“The opportunity for Connect IB to work with the Crown Commercial Service on G-Cloud 9 is a privilege and to be successful in bids under all three lots presents a great opportunity for the business. We look forward to working closely with buyers across the public sector through the agreement.”
