Calero Named as Single Supplier of RM3802 Technology Expense Management Framework for UK Public Sector
London, UK (October 29, 2018) — Calero, a leading global provider of Communications and Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and managed services, announced today it has been named by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) as the single supplier of the RM3802 Technology Expense Management (TEM) framework. The award enables the company to provide TEM services to the UK central government and the wider public sector.
“We are delighted that CCS has entrusted Calero as the sole supplier of this framework following a rigorous bid process,” stated Joe Pajer, President and CEO of Calero. “The award confirms their confidence in our solution and capabilities. As a result, Calero will play an integral role in helping the UK public sector achieve its cost savings objectives while enabling improved visibility and control of their IT and telecoms environment.”
CCS is targeting 25% (£250m) of known central government spend, with the aim of reducing it by at least 20% (£50m) over a three-year period. Through the TEM program, participating departments and organisations can reduce the cost of their ICT infrastructure and realise substantial savings with improved management of their telecom and related technology. The solution serves as an important step forward for the UK Government’s digital transformation agenda and supports the 2019 Spending Review “sleek state” vision, enabling substantial cost savings to be realised by multiple Government departments through the secure use of the latest cloud-based technology.
Delivered through the secure Microsoft Azure Cloud environment, Calero’s Veropath TEM solution goes further than cost reduction; improved visibility of the telecom estate will enable public sector organisations to better control and manage all telecom assets and their usage more effectively and efficiently.
