Target Fly On The G-Cloud

Target Information Systems have gained a place on the G-Cloud framework on the Digital Marketplace for their Cloud Software services.

The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services; allowing public procurement to buy services faster and cheaper without needing to run a full tender or competitive procurement process.

Already having software established in a number of NHS Trusts, Housing Associations and Councils, the Barnsley based software company have gained a place on the government framework to provide cloud hosting, software and support to other public sector organisations.

Target provide a variety of cloud based software solutions including; a contracts management system for procurement and purchasing departments, a visitor management and contractor compliance system for health & safety managers, and a multiple use content management system for marketing & communication departments.

Organisations will be able to use the Digital Marketplace to find Target’s services to help with any digital projects and physical data centre space challenges.

Target works with clients such as Wavin UK, The National University of Ireland Galway, Kier Group, The British Library, 2K Games, House of Fraser and Coca Cola European Partners. Target are helping the Coca-Cola’s large manufacturing site with data automation, facilities management and supplier onboarding to deliver control, visibility and compliance.

Set up in 2010 by co-directors Phil Atkinson and Daryl Greensill, Target currently occupies the biggest single unit at Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC) at Wilthorpe, Barnsley.

Kevin Steel, Business Development Manager at BBIC, said: “Target has become a mini success story within the BBIC having been here when they first set-up seven years ago. They’ve expanded and grown over the years and I’m confident that they’ll continue to do so.

“They are establishing themselves as the go-to company when there’s too much data to collect and correlate. They know systems inside out and they continue to go from strength to strength.”
