The digital data capture and information sharing specialist awarded approved status in both the Cloud Software and Cloud Support Lots.
London, December 2020: Bantham Technologies, a company that specialises in digital data capture and information sharing, is the latest company to be confirmed as a recognised supplier on G-Cloud 12.
Now in its 12th iteration, G-Cloud is the framework where suppliers with cloud-based solutions are collated and made available to public-sector bodies in departments of the United Kingdom (UK) Government. Gathered together in a catalogue called the Digital Marketplace, the G-Cloud framework represents the best and most innovative technology-based tools throughout the UK.
Bantham Technologies is an ideal business to feature on G-Cloud. UK-based, it provides a remote digital data capture solution, digitising paper based forms which integrate seamlessly into current business practices. Its solutions help to maximise productivity and minimise cost by capturing clear data and removing the need to hand deliver or re-key information. This, combined with the fact Bantham Technologies is focused on reducing paper, fuel consumption and working hours so that there is a significant return on investment and positive impact to our environment, make it a perfect partner for the public sector.
“This is a real endorsement of our business”, said Edward Belgeonne, founder Bantham Technologies. “What we can deliver is tailor-made for public sector projects – we improve processes to save time, save money and the planet, all of which are key drivers and targets for the UK government. The fact we have been approved for listing in two of the three G-Cloud Lots is a seal of approval that the public sector is serious about hitting its targets and we’re absolutely primed and ready to help them do that.”
The G-Cloud framework is divided into three categories (Lots) and suppliers apply depending on what solutions they offer to the public sector. Lot One is ‘Cloud Hosting’, which includes Cloud platform or infrastructure services that help buyers deploy, manage and run software and provision and use processing, storage or networking resources. Lot Two is focussed on ‘Cloud Software’ and includes businesses whose service is typically accessed over a public or private network, while Lot Three is ‘Cloud Support’ and includes businesses that help buyers set up and maintain their cloud software or hosting services – Bantham Technologies has secured approved status in both Cloud Software and Cloud Support lots.
For Lot Two, Bantham was selected on the basis of its e-form tool which can either provide businesses with a robust digital data capture solution utilising digital pen, mobile and tablet devices, designed to streamline the collection, distribution and integration of data, or enable businesses to build their own. It’s a solution that can aid the drive to go fully paperless. It was approved in Lot Three because it supports buyers with configuration, implementation and management of the adoption of these technologies. It is also able to provide ongoing support to optimise its cloud-based e-forms service, distributed via the Bantham data collection app and returned to source via e-mail or integrated directly into the back end of a CRM system.
Belgeonne continued, “we know as much as anyone how complex and costly migrating old systems and processes can appear, but have a track record of making the move from analogue to digital as simple as possible. The transition from a reliance on paper should not be a daunting prospect – it’s the way the world is moving. The key is to make sure it is done correctly and with the right partner on-board from the off.”
The Bantham team has decades of experience collaborating with clients to meet their individual business needs. Supporting from initial enquiry through to implementation and beyond it has delivered successful projects business sectors including healthcare and facilities management to increase productivity and positively impact our environment. Most recently with the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, where it introduced an integrated Patient Information Database to automatically pre-populate patient information into live e-Form documents. A move which enabled district nurses to spend less time on administrative duties and creating more time to care for patients.
The Digital Marketplace is managed by Crown Commercial Service (CCS), which is an executive agency and trading fund of the Cabinet Office of the UK Government. Its role is to improve the government’s commercial and procurement activity. Since its inception, there has been £6.2bn worth of sales through the framework with 44% of that spend awarded to SMEs. The majority of the business through G-Cloud has come from the central government.
