de Poel health+care appointed onto G-Cloud 7 Framework
de Poel health+care has been awarded Software as A Service (SaaS) status on the G-Cloud 7 Framework by the Government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
Acceptance onto the G-Cloud 7 Framework means that public healthcare organisations can purchase de Poel health+care’s web-based software solution, e-tips, through the online Digital Marketplace. e-tips enables organisations to control and forecast spend when managing non-permanent staffing requirements – delivering transparency, visibility and compliance through greater management information.
Andrew Preston, group managing director of de Poel, said, “Alongside our award onto the G-Cloud 6 Framework last year, the G-Cloud 7 acceptance further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing the best possible service, for the best possible value, to our expanding network of clients in the public healthcare arena.
“The G-Cloud 7 Framework will enable organisations to recognise hidden administration costs and burdens often associated with temporary staffing, allowing them to pay for the service on a needs basis rather than being tied into an inflexible, long-term contract.
“Creating greater efficiencies and improved service delivery across the NHS continues to dominate the news and political agendas. It is little wonder, as controlling the procurement of temporary staff can be a near impossible task, and one that some organisations frequently have limited control over.
“The award of this contract will allow us to work hand-in-hand with all public healthcare bodies to implement a clear, effective and cost-effective system that will produce the kind of savings that the NHS is desperately seeking.”
Digital Marketplace is a Government-led online catalogue containing details of suppliers and their services. It allows all Government departments, devolved administrations, local authorities, wider public sector bodies and arm’s length bodies to buy services from more than 1,400 suppliers and more than 19,000 services across all types of cloud service models.
