Implementation of the Atos Secure Cloud Service to support The Insolvency Service.
Atos wins new contract with The Insolvency Service
LONDON -- Atos, an international IT services company, today announced that it has won a new five-year contract worth £16 million with The Insolvency Service, an agency of the Department of Business Innovation and Skills. The contract was awarded under the Cabinet Office’s Desktop 21 framework agreement which was created in 2010 to provide preferential access and pricing for the public sector for end user services.
This new infrastructure service is expected to deliver significant savings over five years. Atos will provide the thin client desktop and application hosting services through its Secure Cloud Service. The Atos solution provides a flexible service for 2000 users at The Insolvency Service.
Mark Savigar at The Insolvency Service said: “Atos proposed a solution that meets our business needs and we believe will support us in meeting our organisational objectives for the future.”
Christopher Bingham, VP for Central Government at Atos said: “The Insolvency Service is a new and most welcome client to Atos’ central government sector, and we are pleased to be able to make a contribution to reducing their operational and capital outgoings. We are delighted to have been selected to provide this new service using our new Secure Cloud Container service which enables us to offer a high quality service while offering value for money for the UK taxpayer. Furthermore, leveraging the good work done by the Government Procurement Service in creating the Desktop 21 Framework makes this win all the more rewarding as we support the exploitation of government frameworks.”
The Atos solution will continue the use of low power devices such as thin clients in line with Cabinet Office Green Strategy. It is also expected to improve the delivery of sustainable print services, enabling users to print only what they need where they need in a reliable manner.
