Pitney Bowes on Government G-Cloud

by annea | February 19, 2015 | No Comments

Pitney Bowes has been formally accepted onto the UK Government G-Cloud programme which promotes the adoption of cloud computing. G-Cloud simplifies the procurement process for public sector organisations selecting cloud services. It is focused on the capabilities of cloud computing in driving economic growth and enabling cost savings, creating a more efficient, flexible and accessible way of delivering public services.  The programme provides access to the new Digital Marketplace (formerly CloudStore), which enables public sector organisations to compare, review and purchase cloud-based services.

 

G-Cloud offers greater choice to government departments and saves them time searching for suitable vendors and service providers, as well as providing the reassurance and security that arises from working with approved organisations.

 

James Brayshaw, Vice President, Enterprise Data Management, Location and GIS, EMEA, Pitney Bowes said, “Acceptance onto G-Cloud is a great endorsement of Pitney Bowes’ firm commitment to delivering technology which improves precision and accuracy, increases efficiencies and drives growth. Cloud computing is a perfect example of this type of technology, and is radically changing the way government services are delivered”.

 

He continued, “Public sector organisations are integrating physical and digital communication to deliver a faster, more efficient service to citizens. Pitney Bowes is committed to helping these organisations achieve this balance, to drive growth and provide an improved citizen experience. We have many years’ experience delivering services to the government sector, and are supportive of its drive towards digital transformation”.

 

G-Cloud is part of the government’s Digital Strategy. The strategy includes a ‘Cloud First’ policy, which urges public sector organisations to prioritise cloud-based solutions, when procuring new or existing services.  ‘Cloud First’ is only mandatory for central government bodies, although is strongly recommended to the broader public sector.
