A fresh take on infrastructure delivers results for Drakes

Building a future proofed ICT solution for Australia's largest independent supermarket operator

As South Australia’s foremost supermarket operator, Drakes decided to think differently when it sought to further enrich its leading retail experience.

Its strategy — to transform its end-to-end operations by establishing its distribution and logistics functions in house — meant doubling the business’s warehousing and IT requirements.

It was this decision that prompted the company to partner with YourDC to take the retailer’s ICT capability to a new level.

Moving to an offsite digital infrastructure gave us the redundancy and performance we needed to operate efficiently. Plus, we had freedom of choice when it came to carriers. YourDC’s solution has meant we’ve been able to instantly scale our primary capability and built in an additional layer of redundancy while avoiding long wait times and significant build costs. The early deployment meant we were up and running on day one — with zero downtime.
