Data Image Group Ltd are one of the UK’s leading large format digital print companies, based in Leicestershire, UK.

Specific clients include Dr Martens, Espo, Hilly and John Lewis. We are a global solutions provider and deliver across the globe, trading with end-user clients, third parties and design agencies.
We are looking for an MIS system that will become the core backbone of our job management, this is a major piece of software and a significant investment.
The introduction of an MIS system into our business will bring an online quotation and order processing system that does not exist within our business today, allowing 24/7 access for our clients to create a quote when we are not available. This removes a barrier and sometimes a frustration point with clients working out of hours and in standard working hours at peak times of the day.
Our products focus mainly on large format print; however, we also provide large quantities of small format print such as ticketing strips. Products we provide can range from billboard print ads through to three-dimensional cardboard free-standing display units. Printing directly onto virtually any rigid surface or rolled material, examples of our work include; bespoke ceiling panels; custom flooring; custom wallpaper; illuminated graphics; stretch fabric graphics and 3D display units.
We are currently working across a multitude of individual software’s including Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office, Xero, Esko Automation Engine and ArtiosCAD.
We are looking for the supply and integrations of the following:
The MIS system must use the latest software development and be web browser based so that it can be accessed from any machine on any platform anywhere in the world, which will give us great flexibility and scalability moving forward. There are many benefits to using an MIS System, but the key benefit will be having one system in which we can implement third-party programmes in to, to improve our day-to-day productivity as a business.
