PageOne wins award
PageOne, the UK’s foremost supplier of wireless SMS messaging and paging technology services to the public sector, today announced that its work in providing two-way SMS messaging to the British Army’s ArmyNET has won the ‘Best Service’ category for this year’s Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards. These distinguished awards, in association with The National Public Procurement Practitioners Day, recognise excellent accomplishments and innovation in the public procurement field. In particular, The ‘Best Service’ award acknowledges private sector suppliers that have delivered a contract requirement working in partnership with the buyer, adopting a creative approach and demonstrating the proactivity needed to go beyond basic service provision. PageOne has worked closely with the British Army to provide an integrated, two-way messaging platform that is accessible to all Army personnel and their families via the secure web portal, ArmyNET. PageOne’s solution has enhanced ArmyNET’s communications channels providing a simple way to add messaging through their existing internet portal. PageOne has enabled the Army, for the first time, to send text messages in bulk. Users can now access texting accounts on the ArmyNET portal where messages can be quickly written and sent to hundreds of mobile phones at the touch of a button. PageOne continues to work with ArmyNET to deliver increased functionality and regular improvements to the service. Chris Jones, PageOne’s Chief Executive Officer said, “The GO awards are a prestigious acknowledgement for suppliers operating in the public sector. PageOne is excited to have won the ‘Best Service’ award for our hard work with ArmyNET. This achievement is a resounding recognition of the PageOne team’s commitment and dedication to providing the best possible service for each and every customer.” The 2007 GO Awards gala, was held in conjunction with the National Public Procurement Practitioners Day (N3PD) on Wednesday 6th June 2007 at the Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, London.
