Morris Plains, NJ – June 29, 2018 CherryRoad Technologies Inc. today announced it has signed a NASPO ValuePoint® Participating Addendum with the State of Illinois, allowing the State to simplify their entire cloud procurement process. CherryRoad markets its cloud solutions and managed services to state and local governments through NASPO ValuePoint’s Master Agreement awarded by the State of Utah.
The State of Illinois, which is the ninth State following in the footsteps of the States of Utah, South Dakota, Hawaii, Florida, Nebraska, Commonwealth of Virginia, State of Oklahoma, and the State of Nevada to sign a Participating Addendum, can now work directly with CherryRoad to address their unique cloud solution needs. Cloud solutions provided by CherryRoad include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) – which were developed specifically for state and local governments.
“States benefit immensely from utilizing a proven and multi-state approved contract vehicle to streamline their cloud deployment and support,” said Larry Hymson, Executive Vice President – Client Services of CherryRoad Technologies. “The State of Illinois can now effectively leverage a simpler path to cloud adoption and deliver digital services with the needed flexibility and speed as well as reduce the cost of applications and infrastructure.”
NASPO ValuePoint is regarded as the nation’s most significant public contract cooperative due to its unparalleled value for members as well as contractors, competitive pricing, and superior terms and conditions. NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions Master Agreements are only awarded through a competitive RFP to a limited number of cloud solution providers whose offerings meet stringent security and data protection requirements.
