HP Enterprise Services UK has declared its ambitions to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) compete for public sector contracts by offering 200 additional services under the UK government’s latest G-Cloud 5 framework.
“HP’s new G-Cloud 5 offerings provide SMEs with a low-cost entry point into the secure IT services market,” said Stuart Bladen, regional vice president, UK Public Sector, HP.
“Through our SMEngage program, HP gives SMEs the opportunity to be involved in public sector projects. Around a third of the companies in our UK supply chain – nearly 600 individual businesses – are SMEs.”
New HP workplace services aim to further simplify the procurement process for G-Cloud users as well as SMEs, helping them grow their businesses in the public sector.
