In an increasingly complex and rapidly changing digital world software is only as powerful as those who use it:

Some Key Challenges for all Organisations: 

  • 80% of IT managers realise user training and documentation is critical to project success
  • Without this over 40% of purchased software ends up as shelfware
  • 1 hour of training saves 5 hours of lost productivity
  • Untrained users need 6x more support than trained users

The Solution: Following recent deployment of ART (Adoption Readiness Tool), a wide range of organisations have:

  • Saved 50 – 75 % of time to produce and maintain materials
  • Reduced configuration/implementation errors by 25-50%
  • Significantly reduced “how to” calls to the support desk
  • Paid back their investment in under 6 months

SME Supplier Locator update...

UK Government and public sector spend with SME’s is continually on the increase and by 2020, it is the stated intent of Cabinet Office that £1 of every £3 spent on government contracts goes to SME’s. The past 5 years have seen government make a priority of getting money through its supply chain into the hands of SMEs, by both setting targets and introducing new procurement mechanisms.

Against this backdrop, the WiredGov Supplier Locator service has been developed specifically to embrace the SME Agenda and provide the ideal platform for SME’s to promote their services, solutions, accreditation and success stories directly to our ever increasing audience across all government and public sector verticals and Tier 1 suppliers.

Recent arrivals to the SME Supplier Locator service include:
