London—May 28, 2014—To help councils go beyond cost-savings limitations outlined in a recent Local Government Association report (1), Rosslyn Analytics, a provider of cloud-based data management and analytics, announced that its self-service spend analytics solution is now available for public sector organizations for free, following its inclusion in the G-Cloud 5 Framework. Subsequent users cost just £49 per person.
Unlike traditional labor-intensive spend analysis systems, Rosslyn Analytics’ smart spend analysis app provides deeper visibility of potential savings opportunities within minutes of loading data into the secure cloud-based platform, with ready-to-use analytics apps delivered as a service (SaaS).
“It’s clear to everyone that both local and central government organizations must adopt new and innovative ways of delivering savings and making a difference to the bottom line,” said Charles Clark, CEO of Rosslyn Analytics. “Rosslyn Analytics believes that delivering value, and ensuring the continuity of front-line services for taxpayers lies in the data that public sector organizations have, but which they are not tapping into, because the information wasn’t readily available for analysis by decision-makers—until now—with self-service spend analytics.”
Rosslyn Analytics has a history of helping public sector leaders stay at the forefront of rapidly changing technology and demonstrating the quick business value of cloud computing, such as an initial return on investment in as little as eight weeks.
“G-Cloud is the future of government procurement because it gives public sector organizations access to easy-to-use business tools that were historically too costly and cumbersome to manage,” said Lindsay Smith, secretary general, Eurocloud UK.
In 2010, Rosslyn Analytics proved the power of cloud analytics by validating the ease and speed in which the UK’s spend data could be transformed into actionable information. Within 18 hours of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) releasing 30 million rows of raw Combined Online Information System (COINS) data from 2005 to 2010, the team made the insight publicly available to taxpayers.
The following year, the company offered to help the Cabinet Office reduce the country’s deficit by carrying out a central government-wide spend analysis project free of charge.
