Posted by John Glover on 14-Mar-2018 10:47:55

Kahootz has always been an active supporter of the G-Cloud. We were one of the very first services to receive pan-government accreditation (PGA) for cloud security which enabled us to benefit as early adopters across the public-sector organisations looked to find new ways to work together, safely, in the cloud.

To deliver projects and programmes for their public sector clients, Local Partnerships required a secure platform to share a large number of confidential documents.

They felt that their previous file sharing provider was not meeting their requirements. It was expensive, not user friendly and was very difficult to set up.

UKGovCamp ’13 – public sector collaboration event

Posted by John Glover on 11-Mar-2013 10:46:00

On Saturday 9th March I had the privilege to attend UKGovCamp 2013, the free annual ‘unconference’ for people interested in public sector digital engagement. As the event was quickly sold out many were unable to attend so hopefully my report might be of use.
