WidePoint Awarded G-Cloud 5 Framework Contract

WidePoint subsidiary Soft-ex selected as an approved provider for UK Government deals

McLean, Virginia, and Dublin, Ireland, June 23, 2014 – WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Mkt: WYY) a leading provider of Managed Mobility Services (MMS) featuring Cybersecurity and Telecommunications Lifecycle Management (TLM) solutions, announced today that its subsidiary Soft-ex has been awarded inclusion in G-Cloud 5, the latest iteration of the G-Cloud framework of the UK Government’s cloud computing framework.

G-Cloud is a UK Government initiative to encourage the adoption of Cloud Services across the whole of the Public Sector. The aim is to simplify how the Public Sector buys and delivers services by creating a marketplace of pay-as-you-go commodity services that can be easily scaled up or down, based on the changing needs of a business and its users. The G-Cloud framework, with total sales of £175.5m as of the end of March 2014, is designed to drive down costs by allowing public sector bodies to procure standardised services from approved suppliers.

As an approved supplier, Soft-ex will deliver Optimiser TDI, an advanced online Telecom Data Intelligence (TDI) and Telecom Expense Management (TEM) hosted solution, which can provide centralised telecom intelligence to the Cabinet Office and central Government Organisations, and visibility to individual local government departments/offices of their telecom usage and spend for fixed, mobile, and data, enabling improved control, efficiencies, and cost savings.

Ian Sparling, CEO of Soft-ex commented, “The G-Cloud 5 award to Soft-ex is a reflection of our proven track record and ongoing development in supporting Public Sector organisations. We have a large number of government customers and the trend now is certainly towards cloud based services, which offer greater cost efficiencies and more flexible platforms.”

Steve Komar, CEO of WidePoint stated, “We are delighted that Soft-ex has been selected by the Crown Commercial Services as part of G-Cloud 5 in the UK market. This award further extends our strong footprint in supplying innovative solutions to the government sector on a global scale.”
