Gateway Housing Association has awarded a 12-month managed services contract to Sovereign Business Integration Group to refresh its IT infrastructure. The £150,000 contract began in October 2012.
Sovereign will conduct an IT infrastructure review, refresh Gateway’s IT infrastructure, and manage improvements to its overall IT environment. The contract is also intended to open the possibility of Gateway delivering shared IT services to other organisations.
Gateway selected the managed services provider following a tender process and based on recommendations from Tower Hamlets Community Housing Group and East End Homes who are both Sovereign customers.
Helen Routledge, finance director, Gateway Housing Association, said, “We are keen to see a long-term improvement to our IT support as well as improvements in the reliability of our infrastructure.”
