Softcat is one of the largest and is the fastest growing UK IT reseller that helps corporate and public sector organisations address IT sourcing challenges, software licensing needs, and innovate with new IT solutions and managed services.

When Softcat moved to what it describes as its primary residence in Marlow, Berkshire, in 2013, the building presented a blank canvas on which to paint a picture of the company’s culture and capability for staff, customers and partners.

Softcat management observed that resellers are not typically users of kit, they sell it. They saw the Marlow office as an opportunity to embed the technology and systems they sell into their own environment and working practices.

Softcat turned to Carillion Communications, a preferred Softcat AV partner, to help them specify the best technology to create a fabulous workplace that would also showcase their product portfolio.


“Carillion got us; they understood our needs. They suggested different options and they didn’t bombard us with technical nonsense.” - David Simpson, Softcat Commercial Director
