Barclay Communications and its sister company WorkPal have been awarded a place on the Government Framework for the Digital Marketplace, allowing over 36,000 public sector buying organisations to access their products.
Public sector organisations including authorities, district councils, devolved administrations, agencies and arm’s length bodies such as the NHS, universities and the police and fire service can use the Digital Marketplace to find and buy digital based products such as converged mobile and landline VOIP solutions, Microsoft 365 and MacAfee security.
Included in the agreement is Barclay Communications’ own workflow management system WorkPal, a mobile and desktop app which streamlines workflow, with job management, time tracking, job reports and invoicing all in one.
Britt Megahey, Managing Director of Barclay Communications (pictured), said ‘Local government and wider public sector organisations are at the front-line of public service delivery. It’s imperative for them to have access to the right technology and digital capability to ensure that there are great digital services available to citizens.The Digital Marketplace opens up an additional sales channel to market and sell our products, and enables us to offer competitive pricing compared to other sales channels. It’s a huge achievement that Barclay Communications has been awarded supplier status on the Government Framework, helping to cut down procurement time with this faster and easier to use service. Buyers no longer need to carry out lengthy tender processes as the frameworks on the Digital Marketplace are fully compliant with procurement regulations.’
‘Suppliers across the country have seen large increases in their turnover and workforce with new jobs being created locally as a direct result of the sales they have made through the Digital Marketplace. We are looking forward to a prosperous year ahead at Barclay Communications as we celebrate our 20th year in business, and are delighted to have been accepted on the Government Framework in this year.’
