Airwave has been successful in its submission to include its location-based tracking solution Collaborate as part of the G-Cloud V framework, the latest UK Government Cloud procurement programme.
The appointment of Collaborate to the G-Cloud V framework, which follows an open tender process, is part of the government’s continuing commitment to encourage the adoption of a ‘cloud first’ policy to public sector organisations.
“Airwave is the leading provider of mission critical communications services and our participation demonstrates continued commitment to cloud-based services. As the government’s ‘digital by default’ agenda gains momentum, we are pleased to be associated with the new framework which will further help our customers to improve agility without compromising on performance or security with the added benefit of delivering additional cost savings,” said Euros Evans, CTO, Airwave.
Collaborate is a leading location tracking service which is available to all blue light agencies. Uniquely, users can share real-time location data with each other to establish a complete operating picture, on a permissions-only basis, without having to deal with the cost and challenge of installing, testing and maintaining new IT systems, as it uses the existing Airwave Network and service management portal.
Airwave has invested more than £1 million in secure, big data technology for Collaborate, which will deliver a level of intelligence to customers that has not been seen before. Real-time analysis of more than one billion records generated each month will enable more efficient, evidence-based decision making and immediately identify opportunities for greater efficiency.
