Datum staff helping client

Migrating your IT infrastructure can be a stressful time. To enable our clients to have a smoother transition and an improved business outcome, Datum applies the Datum Concierge approach – providing guidance, advice and practical support from pre-contract to post-deployment.

The Datum concierge approach has been proven to make a real difference to our clients. It epitomises Datum's approach to client service with transparency and accountability delivered through:

  • Practical advice, support and guidance to inform deployment design and assist in the transition
  • Proactive service reporting and account management
  • Dedicated client service manager
  • Detailed reporting including BMS data for transparency
  • Advanced DCIM to centralise monitoring and management
