Houses of Parliament (c) 2016 Ian MurphyNorthgateArinso UK Limited has announced that ResourceLink is now listed on G-Cloud 10. This will enable it to access public sector customers in the UK that are increasingly turning to the G-Cloud marketplace to source solutions.

However, NGA UK is not alone on the platform. Filtering the current listings down to HR in Cloud software with processing locations in the UK and staff clearance that conforms to BS7858:2012, still has 44 entries.

If anything, it is surprising that it has taken this long for ResourceLink to obtain a listing on G-Cloud. The entry states that the company has more than 40 years of public sector payroll knowledge and legislative compliance.

Why business should look at G-Cloud

One of the useful things included in G-Cloud are some basic facts given by the vendors about their software. Each solution also publishes a pricing list for buyers. While this does not give a completely accurate cost of what a solution will be it is, at least, an indication. While the headline cost on the main G-Cloud entry page states £0.59 per person per month, the detailed pricing is higher.

For organisations with more than 1,000 users the initial fee per employee is £13.91. A monthly fee is then calculated based on the options taken. At a minimum this is likely to include the public sector pack at £1.34 as well as several other elements. This does not include implementation, configuration or training costs.

In comparison Workday delivers its HCM and 3rd party payroll connector at a cost of £141.13 per year for 1000-1500 users. Whether similar or better deals are available to private sector organisations is hard to say. As a starting point they are a useful indication though. Another, Luna HR has a simpler pricing metric. It simply charges £5 per user per month for its complete solution, with its core HR offering starting at £1.50.

What does this mean

For NGA UK Ltd this is one of the first announcements that the company has made since it split from NGA to form NGA UK through its acquisition by Bain Capital. When Enterprise Times spoke to Jonathan Legdon, CEO NGA UK&I last year, the inference was that the company would rebrand. This has not yet happened though and the company has not issued a single press release since the acquisition. This might be about to change.

There is no listing yet for moorepay, the payroll software that NGA UK Ltd also controls.
