xMatters has been awarded a position on the Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud 9 (GC9) Framework in the UK’s Digital Marketplace for public sector organizations.
xMatters is a toolchain communication platform that relays data between systems while engaging the right people to resolve incidents.

“We feel very passionate about supporting the increasing demands and requirements from the Public Sector here in the UK,” said Laura Meadows, VP of EMEA at xMatters, Inc. “Incidents like the WannaCry ransomeware attack highlight the risk to our public services. xMatters is committed to supporting G Cloud and its approach to making purchasing faster, cheaper and more secure for the UK Government.”
