Imerja retains position on G-Cloud
By Marie Jude - bdaily 2nd August 2016
Bolton-based IT solutions specialist, Imerja, has secured its place on the G-Cloud framework for the fifth successive iteration, demonstrating its reputation as a trusted expert in delivering IT services to the public sector.
G-cloud 8, effective from 1 August 2016, is the latest version of the framework that allows public sector organisations to quickly source and hire approved cloud IT suppliers through the Government’s Digital Marketplace portal.
Each organisation must go through a rigorous application and selection process, including a supplier declaration, submitting service information, and compliance checks. This is to ensure that only trusted providers are selected for the framework.
This is Imerja’s first inclusion in the framework since being acquired by communication and information technology specialist Intercity Technology. Once again, Imerja was successful in its application for all four areas of the framework, namely Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Specialist Cloud Services, reflecting the end to end cloud capability the business offers its customers, and something less than 4% of the total G-Cloud supplier community achieve. Following the acquisition, Imerja will also be able to offer an extended range of Intercity Technology products via the G-cloud, including Touch Telephony (hosted UC) and Wandera Secure Mobile Data Gateway.
Ian Jackson, managing director and co-founder of Imerja said: “Retaining our position on the G-cloud is testament to our talented team and our innovative solutions, many of which have been designed with the public sector in mind.
“We have strong relationships with organisations across the public sector. Our in-depth knowledge and years of experience enables us to deliver against challenging objectives and implement bespoke solutions when faced with short timescales and budget restrictions.
“Now that we are part of Intercity Technology, we will be able to provide an even wider range of accredited critical services to government, healthcare and blue light services.”
