Customer stories

Hitachi SAN Support

"We were looking for a secondary hardware supplier, who could also offer maintenance, as our primary supplier was underperforming. Using The Embedded Directory allowed us to not only find a list of all HDS resellers, but also profile the ones that were closest to us – service has improved significantly since we moved."

Jaqueline from London

Hosted Exchange

"Office 365 was considered too big a jump for our business, so we looked at Hosted Exchange providers via Embedded Directory and were amazed how much choice there was. This has given us a great path to migrate other services to the cloud over time."

Michael from Hampshire

Voice over IP support

"Our old PBX was running out of steam and we decided to make the jump to a Hosted VoIP system. After entering our requirements, we established a dialogue with 2 local providers who can help, and are in the process of selecting one through the procurement process now – it looks like it’ll save us significant amounts!"

Sonny from Portsmouth


Find suppliers based on relevant attributes and skills, rather than who has the biggest adword budget. Select suppliers that are experts in their field, located closely, are a similar size or who specialise in your industry.


Many companies renew with their existing IT suppliers because it’s the only one they know. Use The Embedded Directory to see all of the available suppliers of a given service, and invite them to articulate how they can help your business.


By pre-selecting only suppliers that are appropriate for your needs, you can reduce the amount of enquiries and ultimately marketing lists that you end up on. Use The Embedded Directory to pre-filter the suppliers who are genuinely useful to you.


By entering your requirements into The Embedded Directory, you will be able to run a highly efficient and targeted procurement process to suppliers who are pre-vetted to fit your needs. Avoid reviewing inappropriate sales materials, and just work with the companies that fit you best.
