Largest GovDelivery UK Contract to Date Signed With Government Digital Service
GlobeNewswire
2012-10-08

   Contract Represents One of the Largest CloudStore Procurement
                  Deals Since Catalogue Published

LONDON, Oct. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GovDelivery announced today
the Cabinet Office's Government Digital Service (GDS) has signed a
contract to leverage GovDelivery's Digital Communication Management
(DCM) solution. This deal represents GovDelivery's largest UK contract
to date, as well as being one of the largest CloudStore procurement
deals announced since the Catalogue was published earlier this year.

Under the agreement, the Inside Government content of the GOV.UK
website will use GovDelivery's DCM platform to provide email
notification services to help the users of government policy
information stay up to date when things change.

A spokesperson from Cabinet Office said, "The Inside Government content
on GOV.UK is where people who are personally or professionally
interested in the business of government will be able to research how
government works and see what it is doing. With the DCM platform we
will meet our user needs for timely alerts when information changes."

The GovDelivery platform is a proven digital communications solution
driving successful results for other UK-based government agencies like
Parliament, Driving Standards Agency, Department for Business
Innovation & Skills and the Met Office. On the forefront of government
communication technology, GovDelivery understands digital government
trends, and can help clients utilise and leverage them quickly.
GovDelivery will offer Inside Government users lots of choice, allowing
them to receive alerts and notifications on many different topics of
interest. This granularity means the DCM solution will better serve
researchers and stakeholders, delivering only the information they need
when they want it.

GDS used the CloudStore catalogue to procure the GovDelivery solution
quickly and efficiently and aim to have the service implemented in as
little as 10 working days.

"We are very proud to have been chosen by GDS to support an exciting
and important initiative like the Inside Government pages on the GOV.UK
website. GovDelivery will be a vital tool in helping GDS keep citizens
up to date with the latest government news, policy, consultations and
publications," said Dave Worsell, Director, Government Solutions with
GovDelivery UK. "We view this as a testament to the high value
GovDelivery's solutions provide in driving successful citizen outreach
and digital engagement across the UK. We are committed to continuing to
serve the UK and international public sector with proven solutions that
scale and deliver the most value to government organisations of all
sizes."

GovDelivery DCM is used by over 550 government organisations globally
to reach more people, automate communications, save money and improve
program results. Government entities achieve these objectives by using
the platform to encourage residents and stakeholders to sign up for and
receive updates on specific topics, from road closures to health and
safety news and local authority service updates through email, SMS/text
messaging, and other digital channels such as social media and SMS.

groups of residents and stakeholders with digital communication
channels provides the best foundation for achieving mission critical
results. To that end, digital communications have been proven to
provide excellent results for government organisations tasked with
realising and measuring benefits from digital by default, channel
