Let us show you why

G-Cloud

Invotra has been working with the UK Public Sector for over five years.

Having started initially with consultant work for the Cabinet Office, Invotra has over the years, grown its intranet and digital workplace technology in a strong partnership with the UK Government.

Invotra (and its predecessor iO1) has been on the UK Government’s G-Cloud Digital Marketplace framework from the very beginning in 2012. 

We are proud of our history with UK Government customers, and are delighted to be able make to the following Service Descriptions available for G-Cloud 9.

Why the Cloud?

For decades, it was the common view the enterprises should take ownership, either directly or indirectly, of their IT infrastructures and applications. Huge sums of money were spent maintaining environments, handling security and installing updates to applications.

Moving to the Cloud removes pain from your organisation, and provides flexibility to your IT infrastructure and application choices. No longer do you need to procure systems, applications and hardware and maintain them yourself. Buying from the Cloud allows you and your teams to pay for only that which you need. The responsibility of the management of the of the infrastructure shifts to the supplier.

Additionally, buying Cloud services removes CapEx (capital expenditure) from your IT budget. Procuring pay-as-you-go Cloud services shifts the CapEx to OpEx (operating expenses), with no depreciation effects.

Invotra’s growing relationship with the UK Public Sector

Invotra’s relationship with UK Government has gone from strength to strength over the years. In only five years, Invotra has gained a 45% share of the total end user base of civil servants in UK Central Government.

Home Office

Invotra helped the Home Office move to a Cloud-run SaaS over four years ago. Previously HO was on a legacy content management system that required change requests to do basic operations like change a logo or other branding aspects.

Her Majesty’s Passport Office (HMPO) migrated to Invotra in 2015, as part of their internal reorganisation resulting in deeper ties with HO.

Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)

Following a consulting engagement in 2015, DWP named Invotra as their intranet replacement in early 2016. DWP moved to public beta with their Staff Directory in 2017 and work continues to migrate the huge amount of content data to Invotra from previous legacy content repositories.

Department for Transport (DfT)

DfT provides an example of how quickly a department can take advantage of a SaaS like Invotra. In 2016, DfT procured Invotra after an initial search and discovery of vendors. From the procurement decision, it took only three months for DfT to have a new version of their Staff Directory live. DfT has since retired their old Staff Directory and continues to use more and more of the powerful social collaboration tools within Invotra.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC)

Whilst never moving onto the Invotra SaaS platform as a result of internal strategic decisions, HMRC employed Invotra for their intranet replacement back in 2014. HMRC continue to this day to use Invotra for their intranet.
