Atkins, an engineering consultancy, is making it easier for public sector clients to procure its leading ICT solutions by adding three new cloud based services on G-Cloud, an online catalogue of information and communications services for the UK public sector.

With the addition of FARYNOR fire safety records management, CIRRUSmaps web mapping platform and geospatial consultancy, Atkins now has 17 services listed on G-Cloud. These range from cloud design and testing, to cloud strategy and implementation.

David Innis, Atkins public sector director, said, “This is a good service launch that provides our public sector customers with a fast and efficient procurement route to access cloud services from Atkins and a number of SME suppliers, in support of the government’s agenda to maximise the efficiencies from public sector IT spend.”

Atkins’ innovative software systems – LOCARD forensics case management, FARYNOR and CIRRUSmaps – are also available on G-Cloud as a ‘software as a service’.

Colin Heyes, Atkins emergency services manager, explains: “Traditionally, purchasing software involved upfront payments for a licence fee and the server infrastructure. With ‘software as a service’, you pay per user, per month or year, and the software is hosted on a ‘cloud’ server.  The result is that you pay as you go and become ‘infrastructure-free’.”

G-Cloud, the UK Government’s CloudStore, aims to make the purchasing of public sector ICT as simple and transparent as possible. Atkins offers a range of services and products on G-Cloud for its public sector clients, primarily in lots three (software as a service) and four (specialist services).
