Client Testimonials

What our clients say

"We have partnered with CDS for 6 years and have had a tremendously successful relationship.  We hold CDS as the platinum standard to which other suppliers are compared – they are excellent."

Andrew Butler, Senior Contracts and Supplier Assurance OfficerLondon Borough of Lambeth

“The migration to the Azure platform was a great piece of collaborative work between CDS and the SOH National Digital Team, something that was delivered successfully in a very tight timeline. What I am really looking forward to now is leveraging the technical opportunities this move has opened up for us. We delivered the migration whilst continuing to serve the public and with minimal end user impact. Since migrating we have experienced 100% service uptime which is key when hosting a national platform providing essential services to the UK public.”

Mohammad Asif, Head of ServiceSingle Online Home National Digital Team
