Press Release

Government teams now have the chance to digitise processes quickly and at less cost after innovative application development platform, KnowledgeKube, listed as a pre-approved public sector solution on the G-cloud 6 framework.

Designed for rapid creation of advanced web and mobile apps without writing code, KnowledgeKube enables non-technical people, for the first time, to automate and innovate business processes.  This means more efficient and productive processes without the risks associated with more traditional software development.

Research in the public sector has revealed that local government IT executives still face significant obstacles when seeking to develop applications. A recent survey* revealed that ‘lack of resources’ and ‘perceived risk’ were amongst the main reasons cited for holding back these digital innovations. 

KnowledgeKube addresses these barriers as an application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS), enabling government to strategically build internal digital skills with non-programmers creating and distributing unlimited business process apps. 

Alternatively, KnowledgeKube’s no-code implementation team can build private Cloud apps on brief, tackling business processes one at a time, like connecting and transitioning any new and old systems and data. A store also offers ready-to-deploy apps on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis that are proven to innovate common and often paper-based processes by type or role.  

Peter Robbins, MD at Mercato Solutions – creator of KnowledgeKube, said: “Public sector organisations are continually looking to remove manual intervention and lower the cost of delivering better services. 

“Right now there is a UK-wide IT skills shortage and understandably organisations are finding it tough to justify the potential risks associated with traditional software development to streamline processes and drive innovation.

“KnowledgeKube sits to support organisations in the face of adversity, enabling them to create their own process apps, quicker and at less cost via adoption of the platform or we can create multi-format apps on their behalf via our no-code implementation team.”
