Carrenza, the provider of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud services, and membership software provider Silverbear have announced a joint partnership that will see their jointly delivered Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution available on the Government's G-Cloud 5 framework.
The partnership provides users with an easy-to-implement solution that reduces costs and ensures government departments have the expert help they need to manage their membership processes.
Silverbear's membership management solution enables public and regulatory bodies, trade associations and professional membership organisations to optimise member engagement and income,. Silverbear Membership has become the tool of choice for many professional bodies that support large numbers of staff within government and the wider public sector.
The solution, Silverbear Membership, is now available hosted on Carrenza's IaaS via Lot 3, as a SaaS offering, available on a per-user pay-per-month utility price model.
The partnership between Silverbear and Carrenza was formed based on Carrenza's proven track record in partnering with other application providers to enable secure and highly resilient 'as-a-Service' solutions to both the public and private sectors. Furthermore, Carrenza's proven track record in working with central government, and specifically their work on GOV.UK, impressed Silverbear's management team.
Mark Travis, Managing Director, Silverbear says: "We were impressed by Carrenza's commitment to delivering IL3 secure services to the public sector as well as their proven track record in delivering scalable and flexible solutions via a channel partner model.
"Indeed, partnering with Carrenza enables us to focus on delivering our value-add membership management software services, giving us peace of mind in leaving the infrastructure management to a trusted partner."
In addition to the public sector, the new solution is likely to benefit a large number of Silverbear's non-public sector customer base as well.
Separately, Carrenza have also been accepted onto the G-Cloud framework as an IaaS provider.
