On Monday 1st August the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) appointed Sysco Software and their cloud services to the latest version of the G-Cloud Framework (version 8) following the completion of the official bid process.
Sysco were first appointed to G Cloud v6 in early 2015 and have a number of clients already who have signed up via this process.
The CCS works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services.
The G-Cloud approach is part of the Government’s commitment to see public cloud services account for 50% of new Government ICT spending this year. Sysco’s key public cloud consultancy and support services, including Microsoft Dynamics ERP (AX & NAV), Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Infor SunSystems, will help deliver the objectives of the Government’s Strategic Implementation Plan.
The G-Cloud framework was launched 4 years ago as a completely new way for the public sector to buy commodity cloud services. This was later supported by the Cloud-First policy which made it mandatory for central government to adopt cloud computing before other options, boosting business and furthering savings and efficiencies.
Four years on, G-Cloud is a major success. Sales have reached over £1b with 53% of this being awarded to SMEs like Sysco. As a direct result this has helped businesses grow and helped more organisations to work with government.
Sysco have a wealth of experience with Public Sector organisations implementing both Microsoft Dynamics and Infor SunSystems and are delighted to be able to offer their consultancy services and support through G-Cloud.
“Sysco’s reappointment demonstrates our commitment to the Government’s Cloud First strategy and we look forward to helping Public Sector companies throughout the UK move to the cloud as quickly as possible.” said Paul Bingham, Commercial Director, Sysco Software.
Sysco provide all implementation and support services around Dynamics ERP, CRM and Infor SunSystems including analysis and design, through configuration and development to on-going support. Their UK based team provides both standard and highly tailored business solutions.
