Case Study Overview

The Midcounties Co-operative wanted to standardise the disparate, on-premises IT services that had grown across its business units over the previous two decades.

CDW, in partnership with Microsoft, developed a new licensing agreement, created a roadmap for the deployment of the Microsoft 365 suite and provided consultancy, support and adoption services.

The consolidated solution led to cost avoidance of £2 million while enhancing productivity, collaboration and security among employees. It has also provided a future-proof platform powered by cloud services.

"I’m pleased to work with CDW and I would strongly recommend them as a trusted IT partner that will work with a customer to find the best solution for their business needs. Their expertise, professionalism and support are excellent."
