Scottish framework signals expansion ahead for PDMS

Glasgow-based software and technology company PDMS is expecting to grow its team after being awarded a place on the new national Application Design and Development Services (ADDS) framework by the Scottish Government.

The ADDS framework aims to provide Scottish public sector and third sector bodies with one-stop access to a suite of Application Design and Development Services.

PDMS has been selected as just one of 20 firms featured on the framework, and will deliver a range of services including: digital transformation of existing services, web-based application development, mobile application design and delivery, and desktop application design and delivery.

Managing director of PDMS, Chris Gledhill, says that the firm’s place on the framework will also boost its Scottish workforce.

“Three years ago we set up an office in Scotland with just two employees to help build upon our 20 year track record of providing software services to public sector clients”, said Gledhill. 

“We now have over 21 people in Glasgow and with the news of the ADDS Framework success, we are about to embark on a new recruitment drive”.

The Framework is open to a wide range of public sector bodies in Scotland including local authorities, the Fire Service, NHS, Universities and Colleges, criminal justice and charities.  The benefits for organisations using the Framework include efficiency savings in terms of a reduction in procurement and contract administration and cost savings with access to competitive rates.

David Stickland, PDMS sales director and ADDS framework manager said: “Securing a spot on such a prestigious framework following a highly competitive tendering process is fantastic news for PDMS.

“Our team have recently delivered a number of exciting new projects in Scotland including Ask the Police Scotland, mobile apps for the University of the West of Scotland and most recently a new employability platform for Fife Council.

“We are currently expanding our team in Glasgow and are really looking forward to helping new clients benefit from digital transformation”.
