Advanced, the third largest UK-based software and IT services provider to the UK market, has been awarded a place on G-Cloud 6 by Crown Commercial Service, the Government’s latest Cloud procurement framework.
Advanced has been on previous G-Cloud frameworks and is offering new services via this latest iteration. The new services include Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online through its Advanced ConsultCRM division, PRM Inventory Management through its Advanced Business Solutions Public Sector & Enterprise division and clinical and care solutions from the Advanced Health & Care division.
The G-Cloud framework aims to promote the adoption of Cloud based software applications in Central Government and the wider public sector. Since the framework was launched in 2012, public sector organisations have invested more than £390M in Cloud based solutions in order to improve performance levels and reduce IT costs.
Gordon Wilson, CEO, Advanced, says, “We are proud to have secured a place on the G-Cloud framework and to be extending the services we can offer through this platform.
“Advanced has a strong track record in working with public sector bodies including Central Government, councils, NHS trusts, colleges and housing associations. Being on the G-Cloud will further strengthen our presence in this area and make it even easier for organisations to access our services.”
Through growth and recent company acquisitions, Advanced has been able to extend its Cloud portfolio to 20 services. These include: budgeting and planning, Cloud business intelligence and support, ERP on Demand, Platform as a Service, MIS, inventory management, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Cloud-based solutions and services for the education and care sectors and electronic call monitoring and clinical decision support solutions for the health and care sectors.
Advanced’s G-Cloud 6 services can be found by searching on the Government Digital Marketplace.https://www.digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk/).
In 2014, Advanced won Tech Company of the Year in PwC’s UK Tech Awards and was ranked in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, which recognises the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK.
