Manchester-based CTS has won a 5 year contract to “drive tech adoption” across Travis Perkins.

It will work with the £7bn turnover group to improve its use of Google Workspace and explore a longer-term cloud technology strategy and roadmap.

“We were an early adopter of G Suite back in 2013 and have made good use of the core functionality over the last seven years,” said Technology Director, Matt Greaves.

“We intend to redouble our efforts to maximise the value of the additional capabilities that Google Workspace now offers, such as Data Loss Prevention, Mobile Device Management, etc as well as enabling improved collaboration across our Group of companies by coaching all colleagues to get the best out of the tools. We selected CTS as our new partner as they were able to demonstrate that they understood organisations of our scale and seemed a good fit for our culture.”

Travis Perkins is the UK’s largest supplier of building materials and owner of the Travis Perkins builders’ merchants, Toolstation, Wickes and a range of other specialist trade businesses.

“Google Workspace can be used in a multitude of different ways and most businesses require a different approach. To maximise value from the platform, and build a long-term, modern IT strategy, it’s important organisations identify how they can take full advantage of the services it offers and value it brings to the business,” added Daniel Ackers, Senior Account Manager for Retail at CTS.

"This is an exciting project for us to work with a major UK brand to improve and leverage the value of Google Workspace, while paving the way for future adoption of cloud technology.”
