The deal operates on SCC’s secure, multi-tenant cloud platform, designed for public sector customers.

Taking note of requirements meticulously

Oxford City Council head of business improvement Helen Bishop said: “Throughout the process, SCC consistently showed itself to be professional and responsive by taking note of the information provided and the specification requirements, and offering relevant and comprehensive technical solutions.

“In the past two years Sentinel by SCC has delivered 100 percent availability. The references, site visit, and stakeholder interviews confirmed that SCC’s culture of customer service was a good fit for this contract and matches the culture and aspiration of Oxford City Council.”

Kelvin Ayre, practice manager for Sentinel by SCC, added: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract by Oxford City Council. As government changes, so does the shape of city councils – resulting in the need for a solution that is flexible, scalable, and cost-effective. That’s exactly why we’re seeing so much success with Sentinel, and we look forward to a successful, long-term partnership with Oxford City Council.”

 SCC’s data center and cloud services division has been performing strongly in local and national UK government circles recently, having been awarded a two-year contract with the Department of Work and Pensions hosting its contract for Universal Credit.
