Isle of Man Maritime Group Member and Maritime and Shipping specialists, PDMS Maritime are delighted to have secured supplier status for its leading international ship registry solution, MARIS, on the latest version of the UK Government's ICT procurement programme, G-Cloud 6.

G-Cloud 6 has been launched as an initiative to redefine the way the UK public sector - central and local government - procures and operates ICT, ensuring transparent access to the latest technology, innovations and services. The G-Cloud's marketplace of cloud services and their suppliers, called the Digital Marketplace, represents solutions assured for security, performance and service management. Sales through G-Cloud have now reached £467m, with £37m in January 2015 alone. PDMS is currently working with a number of clients through G-Cloud, including the University of the West of Scotland.

Commenting on the news, Chris Gledhill, Managing Director of PDMS and techUK Public Sector Board Member for SMEs stated, "PDMS' successful application to G-Cloud 6, which includes our ship registry solution MARIS under our 'PDMS Maritime' brand - which already in use by three of the world's leading international registries - is a fantastic reflection of our sustained focus of being at the forefront of digitalising government services".

As an early adopter of the G-Cloud and the Digital Marketplace (previously known as the CloudStore), PDMS has been awarded supplier status on each bi-annual iteration of the platform since its launch in 2012. Since then, PDMS has worked extensively with many UK Government public sector and maritime organisations to improve processes and service delivery through the development of enterprise scale web based business systems.

The news of PDMS successful G-Cloud 6 submission comes after their recent strategic growth through the acquisition of certain parts and assets of the business of Maxima Information Group Limited in late 2014.
