As a result of continued growth following the establishment of Commerce Decisions Pty Ltd in May 2015, Commerce Decisions has invested in the provision of local access to the AWARD®tender evaluation solution through a secure hosted service in Australia.
Commerce Decisions is working with Canberra-based provider of cloud computing services, Sliced Tech. Sliced Tech’s IT operations have been assessed, through an Australian Federal Government endorsed audit and certification process, to allow the handling of information up to PROTECTED marking. By hosting AWARD® on their Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) certified gateway, Commerce Decisions is able to offer clients the highest levels of security, resilience and agility required by government and defence agencies.
“An accredited environment for AWARD® in Australia will provide our clients with a locally accessible, cloud-based service. Commerce Decisions is now delivering its global knowledge and experience through a locally focussed operation to provide real benefits to our clients” said John Crickmore, Managing Consultant for Commerce Decisions Pty Ltd.
“Having access to tender documents and completing assessments online in a secure manner will bring significant benefit to evaluation teams distributed across Australia. Feedback from clients using the service has been very positive with very significant time and travel savings experienced.” said Crickmore.
The move comes as a result of increased interest in the AWARD® solution to meet the future needs of Australian Defence and Government. With the continued push for government to use Software-as-a-Service by default under the “cloud first” policies, AWARD®implementation will be easier than ever.< Back
