Do you want your business to grow? Get funding and assistance with Digital Drive



Digital Drive is an ERDF funded programme for businesses in and around County Durham, which aims to help businesses in the area grow and develop. It has recently received a £4m fund to help companies in Durham do more with digital technology.

The Digital Drive programme is part of Digital Durham, an initiative to identify homes and businesses with poor internet service, and improve them by getting certain areas in the county access to fibre broadband. Digital Durham is now in its second phase, where it hopes to bring fibre broadband to 27,000 more homes and businesses by September 2018.

Although one of Digital Drive's aims is to improve internet connections for businesses, you could still be eligible for funding and assistance even if you already get fibre broadband. The Digital Drive programme wants to 'maximize SMEs growth potential and sustainability through digital technology', and therefore many companies in County Durham are entitled to help.

The Digital Drive is currently offering the following assistance:
 

  • 'One to one business support to help with strategic business planning, digital marketing and guidance on digital technologies that could be beneficial'
     
  • 'Fully funded masterclasses and conferences covering topics such as digital transformation, digital content and search engine optimisation'
     
  • 'Digital Health Check to assess your online presence, review your digital skills and provide advice on the best use of technology for your business'
     
  • 'Grant funds of up to 40% to support digital consultancy projects; equipment that will help your business to improve through the use of digital technology; or the installation of broadband infrastructure.'


To be eligible for this assistance, you must be an SME located in County Durham. Your business must have less than 250 employees, you must be already trading, and have a turnover of less than €50 million. You can register your interest in the programme on the Digital Drive website.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for a refurbished computer, cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
