Total has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) latest G-Cloud procurement framework. This enables Total to supply specific cloud computing services to UK public sector organisations through CCS’s online store the Digital Marketplace.
The latest iteration of the G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud 8 (G8), went live on 1 August and enables Total to provide a range of Software-as-a-Service and Specialised Cloud Services to the UK public sector. Specifically, Total can provide Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and Intune, Microsoft Office 365 and Mimecast as a SaaS service. Additionally, Total can provide its own Backup and DR-as-a-Service and Private Cloud services as well as packaged services focused on the delivery of Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop-as-a-Service and migration to Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
“Inclusion in G-Cloud 8 underlines Total’s growing credentials within the public sector and endorses our ability to provide public sector clients with excellent value,” comments Kieran O’Connor, Sales Director at Total.
G-Cloud is a UK Government initiative tasked with easing the procurement of commodity cloud computing services by UK central government as well as other organisations across the public sector, including local government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administrations. G-Cloud is managed and administered by the Crown Commercial Service, an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, which brought together all central government commercial services into a single organisation in order to drive savings for the public sector and taxpayer.
“Total has grown to become one of the primary suppliers of IT products and services to businesses in the UK and we now want to replicate that success in the UK public sector by providing customers with the same great value plus knowledgeable, friendly and reliable service,” explains Aidan Groom, Joint Managing Director of Total.
