Concerto has been announced as the software of choice for the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The Trust has selected Concerto via the Government’s Digital Marketplace framework G-Cloud. Launched in 2012, the G-Cloud framework aims to promote the adoption of cloud-based software applications in Central Government and the wider Public Sector in order to improve performance levels and reduce procurement costs. Concerto has been a part of the framework since 2013 and has just recently been awarded a place on G Cloud 8.
G-Cloud offers the Trust with an alternative procurement solution, negating the need to undertake lengthy tender processes and qualification procedures. Based on a 2 year contract (maximum allowable under G Cloud rules) clients are able to pay a simple annual fee for the license, support and hosting. In addition the daily rates for implementation, project management and date take on are also purchased through G Cloud Framework.
Concerto is being rolled out across the Trust to manage its Property and assets portfolio. Implementation will take on a phased approach and include the following property management functionality:
• Core sites
• Planned and reactive maintenance
• Budgets Management
• Associated administrative functions
• Facilities Management Helpdesk and PPM
