We believe in open, scalable, cost effective services
ARCUS GLOBAL WAS FOUNDED WITH A SIMPLE GOAL: TO USE DIGITAL INNOVATION TO HELP PUBLIC SECTOR ORGANISATIONS SERVE THE PUBLIC BETTER.
The idea of Arcus was hatched in 2009 by Denis Kaminskiy and Lars Malmqvist, two Cambridge graduates who saw the potential that Cloud-computing could offer the traditionally cumbersome technology in the public sector. They wanted to provide a way to simplify process, to streamline the cumbersome technology that was taking up valuable time and resource, and put the emphasis firmly back on serving the public. They also wanted to challenge the monopoly on line-of-business applications by other IT companies which was costing the tax-payer a lot of unnecessary money.
We understand how complex and diverse society is, how unique every public service is, and how important it is to remember who it is we’re working to help: people. All of us. Every single person can benefit from a leaner, faster public sector, where money isn’t wasted on bulky, power-hungry service stacks, and time isn’t spent overseeing upgrades and maintenance. At Arcus, we therefore work our socks off to provide genuinely mobile digital solutions which enable better service, simplify process and genuinely make people’s lives easier.
Seven years down the line...
Seven years down the line, it isn’t just Denis and Lars in a tiny room full of big ideas. Now, we have over 100 people, some of the brightest minds in tech development, people we care about enormously. We value our staff, because our staff are our product: their innovation is our customers’ solution. So we look after them, we listen to their ideas and we reward them for their great work. We want to be a company people want to work for.
We also listen to our clients. We work with them to understand every nuance of their purpose and procedure so we can offer exactly the right answer for each of them. We help them to be faster, leaner, and more effective – and we save them an awful lot of money in the process. It’s all about service – our service to them, and their service to the public. And that’s really the crux of it.
So what’s our why? You are. Every single one of you. We power social change through digital innovation – and we absolutely love what we do. We’re learning new things every day, and we can’t wait to see where our story will lead.
