DIPT Ltd

Strengthening their IT foundations and acting as their IT Director to advise on their use of technology within the business.

Setting a strong IT foundation for the business

Established in 1973, DIPT Ltd is the parent group of Protrade and Metal Fabrication supplies, providing tools and equipment to the construction industry. For a company with a lot of competition and with over 10,000 product lines, it’s important that they are recognised for their care for quality and assurance.

The challenge

With the management team of DIPT approaching retirement, they wanted to ensure that the business’s IT systems were in good shape to hand over to the incoming management team, laying the foundation for the business to continue to thrive well into the future.

The solution

After undertaking an initial IT assessment & audit detailing potential improvements to the business’s IT, DIPT appointed us as their Virtual CIO to deliver a digital transformation project to realise the benefits outlined in our IT assessment.

ISO9001 accredited

Since working with them, we’ve migrated their line-of-business system to a secure modern server stack, moved their telephony to a cloud-hosted VoIP solution and started adopting more cloud-based solutions such as Office 365. All this has helped to improve the business’s IT system’s security, performance and robustness, whilst still delivering significant cost savings to the business.

Since engaging with Economit we have been able to benefit significantly from the services offered as well as the knowledge and experience the Economit team bring to the table. They have integrated seamlessly in to our organisation and allowed us to facilitate change in a structured and effective manner. It’s my pleasure to recommend Economit as a partner who can keep your I.T. systems progressive and secure.”
