Supporting Ambition Plans

We’ve been working with West Suffolk College since 2003 and have managed a number of projects over the years, including a complex site-wide wireless solution and a major virtualisation project involving 40 servers.

We have also supported the college in their transition from single site to multi-site, providing connectivity, hardware and ongoing support.

We continue to work closely with their IT manager to identify and recommend technologies that will support their plans for growth.

Research, development and system design is an important part of D-Techs strategy for future growth as well as producing environmentally friendly products.
