Calero and Crown Commercial Service officially launch the RM3802 Technology Expense Management framework
London, UK (January 24, 2018) — Calero, a leading global provider of Communications and Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and managed services, and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) announced that the RM3802 Technology Expense Management (TEM) framework is officially launched and now available to UK public sector organisations. Calero was selected as the sole supplier of the framework by CCS. Calero is a portfolio company of Riverside Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm.
Effective today, Calero begins selling its Technology Expense Management (TEM) solution and services to the UK central government and the wider public sector. The objective is to help public sector organisations better manage their telecom assets and usage in order to cut costs and realise savings. This endeavor supports CCS’s objective to help central government to reduce telecom spending by 20 percent (£50m) over three to four years; for the wider public sector similar levels of savings are expected to be made.
“Calero is very proud to begin working with CCS as we utilise our TEM solution to help the UK public sector meet its cost savings objectives,” said Joe Pajer, CEO and President of Calero. “What this means for UK public sector organisations, is that over time, they will benefit from improved efficiency, visibility and control of their IT and telecoms environment.”
Calero is working closely with CCS throughout the framework term to ensure complete customer satisfaction. Calero’s TEM solution is delivered through the secure Microsoft Azure Cloud environment; furthermore, the solution’s Cyber Essentials Plus certification will give customers peace of mind that the security of their data is protected.
“CCS is very pleased to begin working with Calero on this important initiative,” said Deborah Mylett, Category Lead for Technology Asset Management, Crown Commercial Service. “Calero has undergone a rigorous tender process to win its place as single supplier on our framework. CCS believes that it is possible to reduce public sector spend through the application of TEM methodologies and Calero will be able to play a key part in helping public sector customers to achieve cost savings.”
