Ecometrica Wins Place on UK G-Cloud Procurement Framework

Feb 20, 2012

Ecometrica is poised to support the UK Government’s roll-out of ground-breaking new services after securing a place on its prestigious G-Cloud procurement framework. The project is set to smooth the collaboration between suppliers and government at both central and local level, through the development of a software as a service (SaaS) marketplace, coined the Government Cloudstore.

The Government’s cloud strategy has been estimated by some experts to have the potential to reduce public sector technology costs by some £12bn per year by 2020.

The news follows the announcement last month that Edinburgh-headquartered Ecometrica had received significant financial backing from Highgate Tech Fund, a leading investor in early stage software companies, to support the company’s ambitious growth plans.

Dr Richard Tipper, chief executive of Ecometrica, said: “We have invested significantly in our SaaS capabilities over the last 18 months and the G-Cloud programme is a timely recognition of the company’s expertise in the design and supply of such solutions. The team has a clear commitment to developing flexible and platform-independent solutions around the SaaS model and this award clearly recognises our capabilities across both the cloud and carbon accounting sectors.”
