Multizone awarded G-Cloud II Supplier status for innovative cloud connected mobile apps for public sector workforces
... Proven mobile application platform now available to the wider public sector...
SURREY, England – Monday 29th October 2012 – Multizone Limited, an award winning independent UK based social and mobile software specialist, announced today that its mobile apps are available through the UK Government G-Cloud framework, which enables the rapid sourcing and deployment of secure, competitively priced utility services to the UK public sector.
The award of supplier status reflects hard work by Multizone to take its existing mobile apps for major police forces in the UK and turn them into cloud connected mobile apps and specialist cloud services that can be delivered for any workforce in the public sector in the UK.
Multizone’s G-Cloud II product line includes a mobile app delivery service, which follows a proven methodology for the creation of engaging social mobile applications for public sector workforces, and the public they serve. This unique three-month fixed cost kick-start service accelerates time to value for public sector services by quickly demonstrating measurable return on investment and increasing confidence in the value provided by cloud based mobile apps.
Marie-Helene Durif, Head of Sourcing & Category Management, CT, at the Government Procurement Service, commented, “At the Government Procurement Service our priority is to provide procurement savings for organisations across the UK public sector. The inclusion of Multizone Limited to the G-Cloud II procurement framework will strengthen our offering and provide public sector buyers with a tried and tested route to achieve value for money.”
Angus Fox, Director of British software company, Multizone Limited, commented, “We have worked hard to gain the award of supplier status for G-Cloud II because it fits our philosophy of how cloud connected mobile apps and services should be procured. Our mobile apps are a fraction of the cost of more traditional solutions and they meet the need for open, social two-way engagement far better than proprietary solutions. Crucially as a supplier to the G-Cloud we have removed the tendering barrier in terms of high cost of sales faced by smaller organisations trying to deal with public sector procurement. This means that mobile apps can be locally sourced and quickly purchased and deployed at an affordable price.”
The free Multizone mobile apps provide fast direct engagement and information about what’s happening right now locally between the general public and public sector services are available on the Apple App store, Google Play and planned for BlackBerry App World.
