HOW TO BUY

GCloud

If you’re unfamiliar with GCloud, it’s a really good way of buying cloud and digital services quickly, while remaining transparent and within compliance. GCloud was created by the UK Government Digital Service to simplify the often confusing and time-consuming process of procurement. The suppliers and their services are pre-approved and have passed rigorous checks on your, the customer’s, behalf.  All public sector bodies, including agencies and arm’s length bodies can use it. It has helped millions of customers to start their projects quickly and accurately with cloud and digital service providers. For this reason, RedCortex continues to be a committed partner on the GCloud framework.

Before you buy:
GCloud even helps you to shape your requirements first, putting specialist knowledge from suppliers at your fingertips, while maintaining the impartiality of your further procurement process. Our clients have used this to good effect when wrestling with the challenge of having to define what they want.

Buying your service:
