Sphera Receives G-Cloud 10 Status From U.K. Government
July 3rd, 2018
Sphera just received a perfect 10 from the judges!
As part of the U.K. government’s procurement program for companies that use cloud computing, Sphera was recently granted G-Cloud 10 status for our innovative Environmental Health & Safety cloud-based software platform, SpheraCloud.
SpheraCloud was first announced at the inspire North America user conference in October 2017, and was launched in January 2018 for our Operational Risk solution. Future rollouts for Product Stewardship and Environmental Performance solutions are forthcoming as well.
Receiving G-Cloud status means that Sphera is permitted to sell cloud-based services on what is called the Digital Marketplace. As the U.K. government website explains: “Public sector organisations, including agencies and arm’s length bodies, use the Digital Marketplace to find cloud services, specialists who can work on digital projects and physical data-centre space.”
Companies must apply for this status by following a formal evaluation process that shows they are in compliance with U.K. cloud-supplier rules. The United Kingdom began the program in 2012.
“G-Cloud 10 will further help support the U.K. government through the reduction in procurement costs via bypassing the requirement for lengthy RFQ, ITT, RFP processes,” said Fraser Goodey, Sphera’s vice president of customer success and solution consulting EMEA. “Sphera is thrilled to be so closely aligned to the U.K. public sector via the Digital Marketplace in order help keep their people safe, their services sustainable and their operations productive.”
