New ap­point­ment is good news for dig­i­tal agency

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A DIG­I­TAL agency has been ap­pointed to an ex­cit­ing new frame­work which will en­able it to grow.

Sigma Con­sult­ing Solutions Ltd, based at the Rope­walks Build­ing on New­ton Street in Mac­cles­field, has been ap­pointed to the Gov­ern­ment’s new Dig­i­tal Out­comes and Spe­cial­ists frame­work, which con­nects pub­lic sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions with care­fully-se­lected sup­pli­ers of dig­i­tal ser­vices.

The frame­work is part of the Dig­i­tal Mar­ket­place, which aims to make com­mis­sion­ing dig­i­tal and cloud ser­vices sim­pler, clearer, and faster for the pub­lic sec­tor.

Be­ing in­cluded in the frame­work will al­low Sigma to ex­tend its user re­search, test­ing, and co-de­sign work to new pub­lic sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions.

As projects of a cer­tain size in gov­ern­ment have to go through a recog­nised pro­cure­ment frame­work, it will also al­low the busi­ness to work on larger projects.

The ap­point­ment will strengthen Sigma’s grow­ing pub­lic sec­tor client-base, which cur­rently in­cludes Sport Eng­land, Vic­tim Support, and North Wales Po­lice.

Shaun Gomm, com­mer­cial di­rec­tor at Sigma, said: “We’re de­lighted to be ap­pointed to the new frame­work.

“This en­ables us to work more closely with pub­lic sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions across a rapidly grow­ing port­fo­lio of dig­i­tal ser­vices, in both lo­cal and cen­tral gov­ern­ment.

“We’ve al­ways worked ex­ten­sively on in­for­ma­tion-rich web­sites, ap­pli­ca­tions, and dig­i­tal ser­vices, and aligned our­selves closely with the Gov­ern­ment Dig­i­tal Ser­vice prin­ci­ples of open­ness, data-driven de­ci­sion mak­ing, ag­ile work­ing - and of course putting users at the heart of our ap­proach.

“Be­ing part of this new pro­cure­ment frame­work for gov­ern­ment is an im­por­tant step. It will al­low us to for­mally de­liver our user ex­pe­ri­ence de­sign and de­vel­op­ment ser­vices to pub­lic sec­tor clients, who are in­creas­ingly think­ing of dig­i­tal as the prin­ci­ple method of en­gage­ment with their cus­tomers.”

Hav­ing re­cently opened a new of­fice in Cam­bridge, to bol­ster its health­care client base, Sigma be­lieves its place in the frame­work will en­able it to help more or­gan­i­sa­tions in the pub­lic sec­tor im­prove pa­tient en­gage­ment in the de­sign of health­care tech­nol­ogy.
