Improve collaboration, communication and productivity

Plug-and-play memory and data storage devices for the workplace.

Demands on the workplace have always been high, but even more so now. To keep businesses running efficiently IT equipment plays a big part. Since workforces are now dispersed and working from home, the requirements to remain connected, productive and secure is vital with the increased use of webcam video calls, VoIP and media & data storage applications.

One option is to purchase a new laptop or desktop. But for many businesses, this is a costly exercise when budgets are under more strain. DRAM memory and SSD solutions help bridge that gap, by extending the life of existing workstations, notebooks and PCs, whilst improving performance, endurance and reliability to ensure your IT estate is future-proofed for years to come.

We offer a full range of plug-and-play options which are 100% compatible with the leading notebooks, desktops and workstations available. In addition, we offer the UK’s most comprehensive lineup of encrypted portable storage devices so you can move data securely.

Pain points

These are the most common pain points we hear about.

Ageing systems

2-3 years is a long time in the world of technology, very soon your estate ends up tired, old and underperforming. If your teams are spending less time working and more time waiting for apps, downloads, requests or IT support chances are they needs some help!

Thankfully memory upgrades can have machine performing better than new in no time at all.

Tender processes

It’s a familiar tale, hundreds or thousands of systems put out to tender because they need an urgent refresh. Hardware platforms compromising of various models, revisions and brands often lacking in detail and in a highly competitive process with short deadlines.

The memory solutions we offer are 100% tested compatibility with OEM devices and come with price support for tenders, making the whole process easier for you.

O/S migration

The CPUs in your platform are capable of more, the trouble is they can be limited by the O/S and other components in your system. When you upgrade you inevitably need more memory and storage to breathe new life and keep up with process requirements.

Adding memory and storage will help you to increase capacity and performance so you can migrate a new Operating System and address security vulnerabilities without impacting the user.

Data loss

The impacts of data loss or breach such as damage to brand, regulatory infractions, loss of customers and sales are huge. Everyone in the company is responsible for upholding data security standards, whilst the IT dept does most of the work to implement processes and policy the ability to move data securely and protect it in the event of loss is needed.

Encrypted USBs and Portable SSDs offer the perfect solutions for data on the move.
