The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has recently awarded EssentialSkillz a place on the G-Cloud 9 (G9) supplier list for cloud computing services.

EssentialSkillz has been successful in achieving supplier status and can now offer its compliance solutions to public sector organisations looking to streamline their online safety training and risk assessment processes.

EssentialSkillz provides companies with online DSE Risk Assessment software to effectively identify risks, a learning management system to enable quick implementation of online training, and compliance assurance software to automate the rollout and audit trail of policies, procedures and risk assessments. EssentialSkillz’ eLearning content includes over 40 of the latest courses, covering all areas of Health and Safety and Business Protection.

The CCS acts on behalf of the Crown to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity. The G9 agreement supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart
of government.

The agreement with EssentialSkillz means that public sector organisations can buy its services on Digital Marketplace without the need to run a full tender or procurement process, meaning that it’s easier and faster for organisations to ensure their compliance using EssentialSkillz.

G9 can be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations. The G9 agreement is fully EU compliant and provides easy access to cloud computing services, saving time and money for an organisation.

Julian Roberts, CEO of EssentialSkillz, said: “Acceptance onto the framework offers us the ability to expand our presence in the Public Sector. We are looking forward to having the chance to demonstrate the variety of services and the scale of benefits we can offer those looking to efficiently and effectively manage compliance, risk assessment and eLearning organisation-wide.”
