LONDON, Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi, the world's largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, has been recently confirmed as the successful supplier for the Scottish Government's Digital Conferencing Services framework. This framework is available to Scottish public sector bodies and includes audio, web and video conferencing and webcasting services. The initial period of the framework is for two years with an option to extend for two additional twelve month periods thereafter.
"Following a robust competitive tender process, we are pleased to have PGi as our Digital Conferencing Services supplier allowing Scottish public sector entities to choose from a host of collaboration and conferencing solutions that best suits the needs of teams and individuals, alike," said a Scottish Government spokesman.
PGi's Digital Conferencing solution benefits for the Scottish public sector include:
- Reduced needs for travel and subsistence expenses for organisations
- Lowering an organisation's carbon emissions by expanded opportunities to telework
- Improved user productivity, both in the office and on mobile
- Opportunities for greater collaborative, flexible and remote working
"At PGi, we know that better collaboration leads to better results," said John Stone, EVP and managing director, PGi International. "That's why we're so excited to bring our broad portfolio of products to the Scottish public sector and support their end-to-end digital conferencing needs as their Digital Conferencing Services provider. We're pleased that they've chosen to put their trust in us and we look forward to the collaboration ahead."
On November 9, PGi will participate at the 12th national procurement conference, Procurex Live 2016. During the conference, event attendees will be encouraged to stop by PGi's stand to take the company's recently released Collaboration Personality Quiz. With PGi's expansive product offering, the quiz will help public sector personnel not only learn more about their collaboration persona but will also help them make a more informed decision about which collaboration tools best suit their needs based on their individual user habits. Patrons that take the quiz will be entered for a chance to win an iPad.
