At the beginning of August, Marathon was pleased to announce that we partnered with Bramble Hub. As a part of this, we have been selected to feature our services within the new G-Cloud 8 catalogue. Bramble Hub submits a number of entries to this catalogue, and this year has been successful with all of its 197 entries, giving them one of the highest numbers of entries. Marathon has been submitted this year for the first time, as one of Bramble’s newest partner companies.
Partnering with Bramble Hub
Bramble Hub specialise in making the connection between public sector companies and IT companies, and securing these contracts. They use UK Government frameworks to best match companies together to offer customers the IT services to meet their requirements and budget, and guaranteeing IT companies new contracts. They have a vast network of IT contacts with experience providing services to SMEs as well as specialist sectors, and large corporations.
What is G-Cloud 8?
The UK Government releases an overview of the Digital Marketplace, in order to connect useful contacts between UK public sector companies, and streamline the procurement process. It is managed by the Government Digital Service (GDS) in collaboration with the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). Marathon has been chosen to feature in this edition of the Digital Marketplace, as submitted and approved by Bramble Hub.
The UK Government’s Digital Marketplace
The previous G-Cloud 7 framework has been built upon, containing suppliers that have already been approved, which gives public sector organisations the opportunity to browse, compare and source Cloud services with ease and assurance. Since the 2012 launch of the UK Government’s Digital Marketplace, 2,500 suppliers have made sales of over £1.2 billion.
