Opus strengthens its position within the G-Cloud 11 Digital Marketplace
Opus has added further strength to its growing public sector business by increasing services offered on the G-Cloud framework to now include SIP Trunk Services in addition to Cloud Telephony, UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) offerings.
G-Cloud 11 allows UK public sector bodies to choose and buy cloud telephony services on a commodity based, pay-as-you go service. It supports government policy by future-proofing IT procurement across the entire public sector, ensuring bodies in the space can replace outdated technology and drive economic efficiency by partnering with nimble and forward-thinking partners such as Opus.
This is something which Opus supports through G-Cloud via its public sector team, including specialists looking after local government, housing, healthcare, education and charity sectors among others.
Opus strengthened its public sector team this year with the addition of new experienced enterprise sales and bid management directors and recently hosted a Citizen Engagement seminar for Healthcare and Local Government sectors.
Last week our public sector team were exhibition at the Housing 2019 expo in Manchester, talking to housing associations and local governments about digital transformation and enhancing customer experience.
Commenting on Opus’ involvement in the public sector, Chief Commercial Officer Michael O’Donnell said:
“Our public sector work has grown significantly in recent years, based on our engineering led ethos and personalised customer service, which serve the public sector market as a whole. This is supported by our wider emphasis on digital transformation delivered as end to end technology services in partnership with industry leading brands such as Mitel, 8×8, Virtual1 and Exponential-e.”
“Opus is also an approved supplier on the Jisc Telephony Purchasing Service Framework and Procurement for Housing (PfH) framework, demonstrating our commitment to having the credibility in the public sector space, which has stringent regulations around those that can provide services.”
Divided into three lots: Cloud Hosting; Cloud Software; and Cloud Support, G-Cloud 11 will run for an initial 12-month period, with an option to extend it by another 12 months.
