TERMINALFOUR awarded G-Cloud framework agreement for UK Public Sector
TERMINALFOUR, a leading web content management company, today announced that it was awarded a framework agreement with the UK Government’s, G-Cloud initiative. In the past year alone, almost 45% of TERMINALFOUR’s new business wins have been cloud based with an increasing number of Government bodies seeking Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.
G-Cloud is one of the key initiatives of the UK government's ICT policy and framework. Through G-Cloud, public sector bodies can buy cloud services which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort. It will deliver multi-tenanted cloud services which will significantly reduce cost and will involve both public and community clouds.
TERMINALFOUR is currently one of the leading providers of web content management systems (WCMS) for the UK public sector. It is already helping public sector bodies throughout the UK to provide a range of online services to citizens, improving accessibility and collaboration with the public.
TERMINALFOUR's flagship product, TERMINAFOUR Site Manager, can help public sector bodies to create dynamic, agile and modern websites. It allows them to quickly introduce new online services including paying charges and registering for events through an out-of-the-box eForm builder. This significantly reduces costly offline administrative overheads within the public sector. The WCMS also facilitates social media integration and publishing to many channels to communicate with all of its stakeholders including the general public, elected representatives and media.
TERMINALFOUR is enabling UK local councils to provide 24 hour access to an increasing number of services online, enabling citizens to request information or make payments for a wide range of public services, at any time that suits the citizen. This is having the added benefit of reducing administrative costs across the councils as more transactions and tasks can be performed online.
Through the G-Cloud Services 2 Framework, public sector bodies can take advantage of new technologies, such as TERMINALFOUR Site Manager, to achieve economies of scale, be more flexible and meet environmental and sustainability targets. They will no longer be locked-in to long-term service contracts, ensuring they can access new, better quality and value solutions at any time, rather than being redistricted by existing old procurement contracts.
Piero Tintori, CEO, TERMINALFOUR commented, "We are delighted to be part of the Government’s G-Cloud Framework. Public sector bodies across the UK are being challenged to do more with less and we have been working with our customers for many years helping them reduce costs and meet eGovernment requirements. We have delivered our web content management system through customer feedback, enabling public sector bodies to deliver websites that empower citizens and streamline the delivery of public services."
Marie-Helene Durif, Head of Sourcing & Category Management - ICT, at the Government Procurement Service said, "At the Government Procurement Service our priority is to provide procurement savings for organisations across the UK public sector. The inclusion of TERMINALFOUR to the G-Cloud Services 2 Framework will strengthen our offering and provide public sector buyers with a tried and tested route to achieve value for money."
TERMINALFOUR Site Manager is now available through the G-Cloud frameworks online CloudStore.
