Posted 22 April 2021 by

Today, Advice Cloud and Stotles officially announce their partnership. Combining two major elements that make up the procurement cycle, it’s aimed at helping suppliers have more success in the public sector market. In short: It provides IT and technology suppliers with expert guidance on public sector strategy and enables successful procurement, and gives access to lucrative market activity for crucial engagement.

Ella Grant, Managing Director at Advice Cloud said that, “We’re delighted to be working with Stotles, they’re super people who want to make public procurement accessible just as much as we do at Advice Cloud! This is a partnership that will really benefit SMEs who are serious about investing in public sector and want dedicated experts to help make it easier.”

What does this mean for suppliers? It means that technology providers accessing Advice Cloud’s framework and procurement support receive access to Stotles’ public sector sales tool. After a successful roll-out with many of Advice Cloud’s G-Cloud 12 clients, it’s clear to see the benefits that support with the wider procurement journey has given to suppliers to government.

One of the clients to utilise the service so far is Freshworks’ UK&I Business, whose Head of Public Sector, John Kelly stated, “As a rapidly scaling Public Sector Sales team, it is critical for us to access the right knowledge for ensuring total compliance with the Public Sector Sales processes in order to make it easy for our customers to do business with us. Advice Cloud has continuously provided us with this expertise. Similarly, leveraging data is critical to ensure efficiency around our go-to-market efforts. Stotles has been a game changer for us in this regard.”

With over 3000 opportunities posted by UK government organisations in 2021 already, it’s more important than ever for private sector suppliers to know where to look and what to look for. Having access to Stotles valuable tool via Advice Cloud’s support package, enables procurement in an exciting way.

To coincide with the announcement, Stotles and Advice Cloud will be delivering a free hour long webinar on Thursday 13th May.
