WorkPal has done the double, bagging itself a place on the Government Framework for the second year running after a year of great success in the sector. The Digital Marketplace, which was established in 2012, is designed to provide public sector bodies with a single marketplace where they can source approved digital products and services such as WorkPal’s Workflow Management Software, converged mobile solutions and a range of IT services.


Since its inception in 2013, WorkPal has experienced rapid growth. It offers customers a reliable and easy to use software solution to their workflow management problems. The software hosts a range of features including job management, reporting, tracking and invoicing all available on the move and hosted in the cloud. Targeted at organisations with field based workers, WorkPal is ideal for a range of public sector bodies such as district councils, schools, NHS as well as the police force, fire service and universities.

After experiencing impressive success and growth with the UK’s private sector companies, WorkPal decided to expand its digital offerings into the public sector. The Digital Marketplace provides WorkPal with the opportunity to establish new trading partnerships and tender with public sector buyers in an open environment, creating a more transparent purchasing process. Furthermore, time constraints and different office hours for international trade are no longer issues as it’s possible to operate on a round the clock basis.

Falling under the Barclay Communications brand, WorkPal is one of the many forward thinking products offered by Northern Ireland’s leading communications provider. Products such as their converged mobile solutions and range of IT services have catapulted Barclay Communications to the forefront of the UK digital technology industry.


Britt Megahey, managing director of WorkPal and Barclay Communications, said:


“Local government and wider public sector organisations are at the front-line of public service delivery. We have developed a deep understanding of the challenges facing these organisations currently and how it’s imperative for them to have access to the right technology and digital capability to ensure that there are innovative digital services available to all.

“The Digital Marketplace enables us to engage directly with organisations across the whole of the UK and offer unique solutions that drive efficiencies and enable these organisation’s transformational programmes.

We are constantly striving to make our products as relevant to the customers’ needs as possible, incorporating the latest in technological advancements. All of our products encompass the same elements – simplicity and reliability which is what makes us a leader in the market.

Combining all these services through one trusted partner and giving our customers the highest level of customer service is always at the centre of everything we do at Barclay Communications.


Britt continued:


“It’s a huge achievement that WorkPal and Barclay Communications, has been awarded supplier status on this new Government Framework, helping to cut down procurement time with this faster and easier to use service. Buyers no longer need to carry out lengthy tender processes as the frameworks on the Digital Marketplace are fully compliant with procurement regulations. “We are delighted to be part of the government’s vision for a digital future and look forward to engaging with public sector customers from all parts of the UK.”
