Arcus Global was started by Lars Malmqvist and Denis Kaminskiy following their MBA at Cambridge. The enterprise started as a research project at Judge Business School in early 2009.
The business is focused on building cloud computing software and solutions for the public sector in the UK. In the short time that Arcus has existed, it has secured over 12 local councils, NHS trusts and central government organisations as clients.
Arcus delivered 10x revenue growth in 2010, upscaled its facilities three times and won business in open competition against multinational rivals. Against an austerity backdrop it is delivering savings worth tens of millions of pounds to public sector clients.
Arcus' Cloud-based products cover a diverse range of capabilities designed with the public sector and local government in mind. We built all products in partnership with our Clients, and standardised them as a service available to everyone. Arcus has a diverse range of 35 products and services available through the G-Cloud.

The Arcus Cloud Process Engine : This is a platform for developing agile process management applications on the Cloud. It has the capability of taking any process that could be represented using a standard flowchart and converting it into a user-friendly wizard-based interface and combining it with document management, collaboration, and management reporting features. Arcus Cloud Process Engine is fully customisable and is applicable to any process within an organisation. Designed with the public sector in mind, our application gives all of the necessary tools for a sustainable, auditable process control application. The tool is ideally suited for any area where a robust, yet flexible process is required, such as procurement, planning, legal and many others. The true power of the tool lies in being completely customisable, and its ability to take a standard process and automatically turn it in a fully working process management application. Arcus will provide all of the necessary training, knowledge transfer and support for the tool as required. The Arcus Global Process Engine has been used as the basis for e-Procura, a procurement support tool that enables NHS trusts to easily navigate the procurement requirements of the World Class Commissioning framework.
