HUNTINGDON, England, September 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
IT solutions, cloud and managed services provider EACS has been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 8 framework, enabling the company to offer a range of services through the Government's Digital Marketplace. This is the first time the company has applied to a public procurement framework, although around 15 per cent of its clients are in the public sector. These range from government agencies and local councils to hospitals, emergency services and housing associations, including Coventry City Council, Essex Police and Circle Housing Group.
EACS services available through G-Cloud include infrastructure, systems management and end user computing, plus a range of training services.
Based in Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, EACS is a £17 million turnover company with more than 100 staff and partnerships with many of the leading IT vendors. The company has a strong customer education ethos, running 'Optimise IT' conferences around the UK every year which attract several hundred attendees and include dedicated sessions on the challenges facing the public sector.
"We believe G-Cloud has now come of age, with a growing interest in cloud across the public sector, and as our range of cloud services and skills have also matured this was the right time to join the framework," said Mike Dearlove, EACS Managing Director. "We're large enough to have the in-depth experience public sector clients require, while being small enough to respond quickly to their needs, bringing the SME agility and creativity which the framework was designed to provide."
"75% of our clients have been with us for more than five years - not because we tie them into contracts, but because they like the way we work and believe we're the right people to help them achieve their aims while transferring skills to their in-house team."
Founded in 1994, EACS is an award-winning provider of IT solutions and managed services, trusted by over 600 UK customers. It supplies businesses of all sizes with practical, innovative and cost-effective IT products and solutions including end-user computing, infrastructure, cloud computing and systems management. Services range from ad-hoc consultancy, support and training through to fully-managed or hosted IT systems.
