MOD awards cloud contract to Kahootz
The MOD has awarded a third cloud contract to Kahootz for secure working environment technology.
The company was awarded a cloud contract from the MOD for Defence Share, a cloud-based collaborative working environment. The software allows MOD teams to collaborate and share information easily which can be protectively marked as sensitive and shared with external organisations.
The business was evaluated based on the speed of delivery, value for money, flexibility, as well as service and operational security, compared to other companies. Given a DE&S CEO award for excellence, the collaborative features provided by Kahootz have been applauded for the way they have helped to strengthen and support the engagement of the SME community in particular.
Phil Williams, Managing Director of Team Defence Information, said: “We’re delighted to learn the MOD has decided to award another contract to Kahootz. Previously unknown to many of us in the industry, they have quickly become recognised as the ‘go-to’ collaboration service for dispersed project teams that need to share information safely across organisational boundaries.”
“As an active member of ours, the team at Kahootz has invested a lot of time and effort to work with our members over the last 4 years to understand the teamworking challenges faced by the UK Defence Industry and are now starting to reap the benefits.”
Some prime defence contractors have also adopted Kahootz systems in their own operations to connect with their supply chain as well as industrial and academic partners. The new two-year MOD contract will build on previous work supporting innovation in finding new ways for teams within the organisation to connect as well as with external stakeholders.
