In addition to leveraging the existing comprehensive Softcat portfolio of products and services, our team offers additional support to the Defence sector. We work with a network of trusted suppliers and manufacturers to offer technology services and solutions to the Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Executive Agencies, Defence Contractors and the Defence Practices of the Systems Integrators and Prime Contractors. We understand the demands of the sector, taking an agile and innovative approach to leveraging technology to deliver outcomes that meet business strategy / objectives like the MoD Digital Transformation Strategy.

We also work extensively with Police forces across the UK. Our Bluelight team understand the unique security requirements of the sector and have developed specific relationships with vendors pertinent to the Police. We have taken innovative approaches to building secure networks, as well as supporting a range of other procurement requirements.

Softcat listen, respond and deliver. Some of the advice and support they offer is invaluable and the industry knowledge they bring to the table is second to none.

Why Softcat for Defence and Justice?

Our Defence team works with you to add value to your business practices - we know it’s not always about price - we look at your business objectives and align the right technology (solution or service) to achieve them in the most efficient and appropriate way. We have a proven track record in offering value for money, taking innovation and new technology to the Defence sector. We understand the way the Defence sector operates, with years of experience working with trusted suppliers to facilitate business as usual, as well as digital enabling technology to address business needs.

Our Bluelight team has developed a strategic relationship with Police ICT, fully supporting the National Enabling Programme (NEP) and their vision to provide a modern technology environment to transform policing in the UK. We have a sole supplier agreement, working with identity management company SailPoint to provide identity and access management services, creating a more flexible and seamless way of working. All our consultants and project managers are security cleared, and are armed with extensive Microsoft experience, holding Gold services partner status.

One thing that remains consistent with the rest of our business is a passion for Customer Service and delivering an unrivalled experience for our customers.
