PDS were able to deliver a choice of excellent creative concepts and delivered the project effectively from start to finish. We continue to receive positive feedback on the campaign from within our networks and very much enjoyed working with the team at PDS.”

Using the PDS+ platform has given us a highly flexible and on-demand solution that empowers our sales teams with reduced barriers to entry and greater autonomy, enabling more sophisticated marketing management.”

    Head of Branch Marketing
  • “With an ambitious growth plan to add a new Tim Hortons restaurant to every major town and city across the UK, PDS has been an invaluable partner to ensure this runs smoothly. From keeping up to date with our stock levels to allow quick and instant dispatches for restaurants that jump up the timings list, to creating editable templates for us to make bespoke location adjustments easily to flyers, and always being at the end of the phone to assist with any unexpected issues or changes, we couldn’t do it without them. In these high-pressure environments, with lots of things going on all at once, PDS are a constant we can rely on and who really do add value.”

We now have a robust set of guidelines that support our ability to react with pace when developing strategic campaigns and with confidence that our brands are being represented with consistency and respect.”

  • “We engaged with PDS, a key supplier to Bright Horizons in relation to a proposition for Employee Hampers. They responded swiftly with a solution that enabled us to send a good quality gift whilst also solving the logistics of sending out employee gifts to home addresses. The solution gave ownership to the employee on claiming their gift and confirming the address they wanted the gift delivering to.”

As a small charity that supports a lot of people we rely heavily on PDS skills and experience to get our resources into the hands of people that really need them. PDS provide a great service often going beyond what is expected of them to help us provide the best quality of service to our customers.

  • “Here at Northamptonshire Mind, we are often amazed and humbled by the work many individuals and companies carry out to help us support our service users. Print Data Solutions has been working with us for many months to raise awareness and funds for mental health issues. Everyone at the company pulled out all the stops and kindly donated time and indeed, money, to produce an absolutely fantastic suite of marketing goods, which we can take to the many public events we run throughout the county – the banners, t-shirts, balloons and other items were brilliantly designed, ordered and delivered to us – we cannot thank PDS enough. We have been hugely impressed by the quality of work and of course, the generosity and commitment shown to us and the fight for better mental health.”
