Leading Property asset management and surveying technology provider Kykloud has once again made it on to the Government’s G-Cloud framework – securing its place on the recent G Cloud 9.
Kykloud has successfully been part of the framework since G-Cloud 4 and is part of a growing number of SaaS businesses now approved to work with governments and public sector organisations. Kykloud’s technology provides data collection and lifecycle management technology for surveyors and assets managers across the globe, is hoping that the latest iteration of the framework will make it easier for public sector organisations to engage with technology.
Nick Graham, CTO at Kykloud said: “G-Cloud has without a doubt had a massive impact on Kykloud and has helped us to secure some major public sector contracts and work with the likes of The Education and Skills Funding Agency (DfE ESFA) as part of its CDC Programme – its largest ever Condition Data Collection programme of 22,000 schools in England over a two year period.
“G-Cloud goes a long way to facilitate public sector procurement and G-Cloud 9 certainly reduces some of the perceived barriers of its predecessors and is definitely encouraging more public sector organisations to really engage with technology solutions which could transform their operations. This is by far the easiest way for Public bodies to buy market leading PropTech like Kykloud”
Suppliers are generally optimistic that the new iteration will make it easier to find results, due to new sub-category functionality.
Nick added: “The categorisation on G-Cloud 9 is more detailed than previously, which should help the buyer to find a suitable supplier to meet their needs with greater ease. Whilst it’s still early days, feedback from clients and prospects would suggest that G-Cloud 9 will have a significant impact on public sector procurement and indeed our own business which is attracting huge interest from the public sector.”
