WiFi SPARK is Now Available on G-Cloud 11

We’re thrilled to announce that WiFi SPARK is now available on G-Cloud 11 within the UK’s CCS G-Cloud Framework. Users can find our fully managed WiFi services for public sector organisations on the platform. The digital marketplace is a faster and cheaper way for buyers to find procurement contracts.


What is G-Cloud 11?

Set up by the UK government’s crown commercial services, G-Cloud 11 is an initiative that makes it easier for public sector bodies and government departments to procure cloud-based services.

 

It’s an online marketplace that’s filled with pre-approved vendors, allowing users to easily search for a solution that suits their exact needs. 

 

The framework allows public bodies to receive innovative cloud solutions that will improve their services. It also allows WiFi SPARK to deliver fully managed guest WiFi to significantly boost user experience.

There are around 25,000 cloud services on the G-Cloud framework that are divided into three categories: cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support. To be listed on the platform, G-Cloud suppliers need to have been evaluated and confirmed information regarding the way they work and the services they offer. 

 

Compared to previous iterations, G-Cloud 11 is more focused on security. Suppliers needed to meet certain anti-virus and anti-malware requirements before being accepted onto the platform. 


There were also new corporate social responsibility clauses added into this version of G-Cloud. They cover the standards and behaviours that are expected of suppliers who work with government organisations. Choose a supplier that’s listed on the framework and you can expect a high level of professionalism and service. 

 

The Services We Offer

WiFi SPARK’s services can be found in both the cloud hosting and cloud software categories. We offer a WiFi service delivery platform that’s fully customisable and branded. There’s customer behaviour analysis functionality available as well as ROI, app integrations and entertainment solutions. 

 

The full list of features is available to view on the platform but some of the most appealing are:

 

  • A complete end-to-end service that includes design, installation and management. 
  • Free radio, TV and entertainment to users and staff.
  • Bandwidth and network management.
  • Enterprise grade hardware and equipment. 
  • Bespoke User Experience Portal design and customisation. 
  • Business intelligence courtesy of SPARK® Analytics. 

 

By choosing WiFi SPARK, government bodies benefit from a robust solution that’s safe, secure and compliant. Rather than needing multiple providers to manage the network, they’ll be able to receive all of the support and expertise from us. 

 

We’re equipped to provide multiple networks for public, guest or corporate use - each designed and set with different parameters. We can help you to drive customer loyalty by implementing targeted messaging and offer entertainment solutions without extortionate fees.

 

Plus, we provide 24/7 technical support. Our experts are constantly monitoring the network and proactively dealing with any issues before they can escalate.
