Support levels
There is one level of support: Help-desk and secure support site are the primary vehicles to manage that. An Account Manager will be assigned to each client and they will manage if any additional prioritisation is required, if any requests are change/control requests and whether charges are required and also any escalation that may be required.

There is availability for providing dedicated support resources through the service and prices are provided via the G-Cloud12 Rate Card pricing document.
Support available to third parties

Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Onboarding is achieved via a Requirements Capture Process. This is undertaken with the client on-site to: demonstrate the standard build of the system, determine any configuration requirements outside of the standard build and agree data migration, training requirements and procedures for User Acceptance Testing and Go-live. This process is led by the WDM Account Manager assigned to the project and they will project manage the delivery. The Account Manager will work with the Build Team assigned to the project to deliver the service and to liaise with the client's Project Team regarding progress and milestones.

Following Go-live, the day to day support will be passed to the Support Teams but the Account Manager will generally retain overall control of the project to retain continuity.

Training resources will be provided - More recently, this takes the form of training videos that are deployed via the software management console and this seems to work very well.

All charges associated with migration, configuration from the standard build and implementation will be agreed with client in advance.
Service documentation
Documentation formats
Other documentation formats
  • Training Videos (mpeg4) deployed directly from the Software
  • Some documentation not appropriate for Video will still be PDF
End-of-contract data extraction
Client Admins can have any table or view of the data published with the ad-hoc query tool which in turn supports download in a number of formats (CSV, XML, Shape Files, Mapinfo, KML - the last three obviously only for Spatial datasets).

On termination of the Contract, WDM can also make the data available via their SFTP site for a period of three months following termination.
End-of-contract process
As explained above, the client will have access to download their own data free of charge. If WDM are extracting the data then only time will be charged at the hourly rates quoted in the G-Cloud12 Rate Card pricing document - This will vary depending on the extent of the system and can be agreed in advance of the Contract starting.

Using the service

Web browser interface
Supported browsers
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Safari 9+
  • Opera
Application to install
Designed for use on mobile devices
Differences between the mobile and desktop service
The back-office systems are on-line Web Browser based and so mobile devices can be used where Internet is available. Tablet modes are available for some tools where appropriate. The system is designed to generally be tablet friendly - e.g. using menus rather small icons etc.

Mobile Working tools are designed specifically for mobile devices and can work on-line and off-line
Service interface
Description of service interface
The service is accessed via a Web Browser url which opens a Management Console called "AppCentre" from which all Web Browser based application url's are launched (dependent on user security).
Accessibility standards
None or don’t know
Description of accessibility
We have worked with central government clients to ensure that software, where appropriate, particularly public facing apps, complied with their standards based on WCAG2.1A. In addition, the wide use of bootstrapping in developments ensures standardisation of tools for accessibility. Text is widely used in addition to graphics.
Accessibility testing
Development in conjunction with central government clients to ensure assistive technology is appropriate for purpose.
What users can and can't do using the API
Some parts of the service currently have an API but this is primarily relating to interfacing with external systems at present (e.g. FixMySteet, CMS interfacing etc.). API development is part of the WDM RoadMap and that project is well underway. Developments include creating defects & enquiries, asset viewing/editing, mapping links all with full audit trail. The intention would be for the whole service to be API based by 2022.
API documentation
API sandbox or test environment
Customisation available
Description of customisation
The service is highly configurable without requiring software development e.g. work flow, logic rules, screen layouts, grids, asset attributes/lookups, published map layers,

In general, customisation would be a client Admins role. Training can be provided. In practice, most clients use WDM Support to help with customisation. The time may be chargeable if a significant amount of work for the supplier at the rates supplied in the G-Cloud12 Rate Card Pricing document.


Independence of resources
The cloud hosting service is scaled for more than the number of users specified and assuming they are all working concurrently. Sufficient redundancy is scaled as part of that initial system scaling.

The hosted system is continually monitored to ensure that capacity and speed remains fit for purpose and extra resources can be assigned as appropriate.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
We currently achieve the following Service Levels and these are measured and reviewed as part of our ISO 27001 ISMS: Access and availability of the systems at least 98% per year. We actually achieve at least 99.9% to date (equates to 8.76 hours downtime per year). Access to Customer support 08:00 to 18:00, Monday to Friday 5 days a week, not including Bank Holidays at least 98% at all times. Any failures to meet these SLA's will be escalated to the Management Team and appropriate action taken to resolve in discussion with the client.
Approach to resilience
The primary cloud hosting environment is Amazon(UK) cloud services and resilience is well documented. Further details can be provided on request. Some existing clients are hosted via WDM's own data centre which may be continued where existing clients use G-cloud to continue their system supply.This WDM hosted system is operated across two redundant sites in Bristol. Each site has dedicated ISP circuits and all critical components are mirrored between the sites. Disaster recovery procedures are all tested annually for both options. Further details can be provided upon request.
Outage reporting
The hosted system provides an authenticated monitoring dashboard indicating service health. Email alerts can also be configured to alert for specific predefined conditions.
