PageOne, a messaging solutions company across the public and private sectors, announced today (5 November 2013) that its G-txt Service has been accepted under Lot 3 of the Government’s National G-Cloud framework and is now available in the G-Store.
PageOne’s G-txt is a secure web-based messaging service allowing users to quickly send individual or group broadcast messages to any combination of SMS, pager, email and landline.
The service is simple, easy to use, and accessible from any internet-connected PC or mobile device and includes a host of features to manage messaging. G-txt is available from the CloudStore, the government-run online catalogue for services that have undergone vetting for the G-Cloud procurement framework.
The G-Cloud framework is a key component of the Government’s ICT strategy and was developed to give customers access to pay-as-you-go services as a more cost effective alternative to traditionally sourced ICT services. The framework is focused on introducing cloud-hosted services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector and provides simpler, faster and cheaper ways for them to buy digital services.
Nigel Gray, director of PageOne commented: “PageOne is delighted to have been selected by the Government Procurement Service to be a supplier on the G-Cloud framework. The public sector is under intense pressure to improve services whilst cutting costs and due to these limitations, many are now recognising the potential for technology to improve efficiencies.
“We are excited to be able to offer our G-txt service and we look forward to engaging and working with a wide range of public sector bodies on some exciting projects.”
PageOne’s wider messaging solutions for the public sector are available via the Government’s national Public Services Network (PSN) framework, for which PageOne is an approved supplier.
