Public Sector Fully Managed IT Service Provider

We provide fully managed IT services and solutions that focus on creating cost efficiencies and improving your back-office operations. By working in partnership with public sector bodies, we take care of your IT operations and enable you to focus on delivering an exceptional citizen customer experience.

We start by embedding our experts into your organisation to understand your processes and assess your requirements based on the challenges that you are facing. From there, we work in partnership with your teams to provide resource and capacity to the areas that you are struggling with and can increase our support to provide a fully managed and outsourced IT service.

Our services include access to our ITIL accredited and 4-star SDI certified service desk. We can also provide full management of problems, incidents, changes, releases and capacity. We specialise in providing local authorities with full IT service management and have provided this service to Kent County Council alongside several schools for over 30 years.

Working in Partnership with Local Authorities

Cantium has worked in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) to deliver their business-wide digital transformation programme. The programme aims to transform and improve IT services for council staff, customers, and strategic partners, and increase the value of GCC’s business processes and public interactions through digitalisation and improved management of its service assets.

Cantium were engaged in supporting with the:

  • Service Design and Implementation
  • Technical Architecture Assurance, Strategy and Roadmap
  • Programme Management

Our partnership approach was key to the achievement of the programme goals.

One of the best things about working with Cantium is their partnership approach, enabling us to exit the existing managed service contract, transition services to a new provider, and stand up in-house functions within tight deadlines.
