Smarter Business is Now a Crown Commercial Supplier

by | Jul 5, 2019

Smarter Business is now an approved supplier in the UK Government’s Digital Marketplace.

We are proud to report that we have been selected as a supplier on the G-Cloud 11 framework on the Digital Marketplace managed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

What is the G-Cloud framework?

The G-Cloud framework is an innovative procurement tool for public sector buyers. It can be used by organisations across the UK public sector, including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence, and not-for-profit organisations. Over £4.79 billion has been spent through the framework since its inception in 2012.

What is G-Cloud 11?

G-Cloud 11 is the latest version of the framework agreement.

Niall Quinn, director of Crown Commercial Service’s Technology Pillar, says: “G-Cloud continues to be a major success story for how we drive innovation in the public sector. G-Cloud is all about simplicity, making it as straightforward as possible for customers and suppliers to find each other.”

What services does Smarter Business offer?

Smarter Business, with the support of sister company Visionist, has gained approval as a Crown Commercial Supplier. We provide a baseline service to help companies understand how their sites could be smart building-enabled. As part of this free service, businesses receive an assessment report that includes appropriate smart building and compliance recommendations, as well as recommendations for utilities brokerage and other business services.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the transformation and modernisation of the UK public sector. The G-Cloud 11 supplier status is a validation of our competitive offering and the hard work of the Smarter Business team.” – Matthew Margetts, Director of Communication at Smarter Business.
