Callmy Alert Successfully Secures Place on G-Cloud 12

CCS LogoCallmy Ltd is delighted to announce it has been selected as a Crown Commercial Service supplier and Callmy Alert can now be procured through the G-Cloud 12 framework.

What is G-Cloud?

The G-Cloud initiative is designed to help the UK Government procure cloud computing services, including cloud hosting services, cloud software and cloud support services through the Digital Market Place. Companies that join the framework must offer the very highest security standards and undergo rigorous audits.

The Digital Marketplace, and all the frameworks included in it, is managed by the Crown Commercial Service, an executive agency and trading fund of the Cabinet Office of the UK Government. Their role is to improve the government’s commercial and procurement activity.

Since its inception, there has been £6.2bn worth of sales through the framework with 44% of that spend awarded to SMEs. The majority of the business through G-Cloud has come from Central Government.

Which Callmy Services are available via G-Cloud?

As part of the Cloud Services lot the Callmy Alert Lone Worker SOS and Callmy Alert Mass Notification services are available.

Both services provide a range of capabilities designed to support the communications required by Civil Contingency situations, Business Continuity events and compliance with Health and Safety regulations.

“This is a great opportunity for UK Government to buy services from a UK supplier. Callmy services offer outstanding value for money and, as well as helping organisations to communicate in a crisis, will also introduce scope to reduce costs.

In these challenging times we are committed to providing innovative communication services that will enable the UK Public Sector to remain resilient through the most demanding situations, whilst maintaining their duty of care to their staff and the wider public”

Tony Watson – Founder and CEO – Callmy Ltd

Callmy Alert – supporting your compliance with ISO22301

BCP ImageISO 22301, the standard for Business Continuity Management, emphasises the need for a well-defined incident response structure.

This ensures that when incidents occur, responses are escalated in a timely manner and people are empowered to take the necessary actions to be effective – section 8.4.3 of the standard details the requirements for a communication and warning system.

Callmy Alert is the idea service to support your Business Continuity communication and to ensure compliance. It is a simple to use service and provides a complete audit of all message activity and response – vital to help assess how situations were resolved and to refine future plans.
