Axios achieves G-Cloud framework recognition once again
In 2015, UK Government spend is forecasted to be £731.4bn2, a further increase on previous years. Investment in cloud technologies is integral to the UK’s digital strategy. Indeed, by 2017, SaaS is set to generate almost 60% of cloud revenues3. This trend is replicated in the Service Management market, with IDC Research sponsored by Axios highlighting that every second company that now uses on-premise IT Service Management software plans to launch a cloud-based version within the next two years4.
Built on openness and transparency, G Cloud 6 will help public sector organizations find and compare cloud-based services, such as Axios’s ITSM solution assyst, tailored to meet the needs of their organization. assyst already enables many local and central public bodies across the UK to become more efficient on a tighter IT budget without reducing their services. Xentrall Shared Services, a successful Public-Public partnership between Darlington and Stockton councils, reduced their email contacts by an impressive 98% through the adoption of online customer self-service, whilst achieving an 82% rise in customer satisfaction. Similarly, the Forestry Commission has dramatically reduced the number of phone calls to the service desk, freeing up analysts to focus on other key tasks and driving efficiencies across the business.
Tasos Symeonides, CEO at Axios Systems, said, “Being awarded a place as a G-Cloud 6 provider is key in allowing us to engage with public sector organizations across the UK to help them improve not only their infrastructure operations, but also to enhance service delivery across business functions including HR, Facilities Management and Finance.”
