Another year of ISO 9001 Quality Standards
We started on the path to Quality Assurance as a company 30 years ago and achieved the old BS5750 for Quality Management Systems the following year.
Then it went to the international standard of ISO9001.
We have been audited every year since and just achieved another successful audit. Far from being a simple documentation of our processes, this has been a continual journey of change and improvement that works for CDR Group and proof that this assures our customers of the high standards of quality that we strive for.
Thank you to NQA for their service in the external accreditation.
CDR Group has a renewed place on G-Cloud 13, the UK Government's cloud procurement framework
Once more, we are very pleased to announce the renewed offering of Spectrum Spatial as a cloud based GIS application via the G-Cloud catalogue. Spectrum Spatial, from Precisely, is a powerful web mapping tool that can be accessed from any device in any location and has an intuitive interface that allows staff to jump straight into spatial data without any training. We already work with a number of public sector organisations and hope that being included in the governments procurement framework will give prospective customers the final vote of confidence they need to invest in CDR Group.
G-Cloud 13 offers public sector organisations the opportunity to purchase their cloud-based software and services from a single catalogue. Buying services through frameworks is faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts. Buyers and suppliers still need to sign a contract (or ‘call-off contract’) for each service bought through a framework. G-Cloud 13 is the thirteenth iteration of the G-Cloud framework. G-Cloud is open to all public sector bodies including central government, local government, third sector organisations, NHS and other health providers and education.

The Spectrum Platform (which includes Spectrum Spatial server) and Spectrum Spatial Analyst will now require JDK 11 as a pre-requisite for deployment. JDK8 is no longer supported for deployment of the Platform.
Here's a list of some of the most important improvements in Spectrum Spatial v2022.1:
