Triad's web-based mapping service awarded a place on Government's new procurement framework
Milton Keynes, UK, 13 November 2012 - Triad Consulting & Solutions' map-based community engagement application has been awarded a place by the Government Procurement Service, on the Government's new G-Cloud ii Framework Agreement. Public sector bodies can now deploy an engaging consultation website in less than a day by procuring Triad's cloud-based service through the CloudStore catalogue.
"Triad is proud to have been awarded this position on the Government's innovative and essential catalogue framework", said Adrian Leer, Commercial Director, Triad Consulting & Solutions. "Our EngageCL service allows Public Sector organisations to rapidly and economically establish an intuitive, interactive and engaging website for public reporting."
Triad's EngageCL service lets local authorities, within a day, deploy a map-based community engagement website. By simply clicking on a map of the district, members of the public can tell you what they think, voice their concerns, volunteer their services or make suggestions. Similarly, local government can update residents about the facilities, projects, initiatives, activities and opportunities where they live.
Marie-Helene Durif, Head of Sourcing & Category Management, at the Government Procurement Service had the following to say about Triad's successful application: "At the Government Procurement Service our priority is to provide procurement savings for organisations across the UK public sector. The inclusion of Triad to the G-Cloud II Framework Programme will strengthen our offering and provide public sector buyers with a tried and tested route to achieve value for money."
EngageCL is one of a range of web-based mapping platforms available from Triad, providing off-the-shelf web-GIS local information systems and advanced community engagement solutions. These platforms also act as the engine behind many bespoke solutions as well as map-driven Web-Part extensions to Microsoft SharePoint.
Triad's G-Cloud services can be found by searching for 'Triad' on the Government CloudStore (http://gcloud.civilservice.gov.uk/cloudstore/).

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.
