Business Hive

Looking to support a local community project?


Wiltshire Digital Drive Business Hive is for you!

If your business is looking to support a local community project or wants to improve its corporate social responsibility strategy, then the Wiltshire Digital Drive Business Hive is for you.

Over the past twelve months we have gifted just under 1000 laptops to Wiltshire residents to help support children and adults alike with home schooling, or keeping in touch with friends, taking education courses or applying for new jobs during the lockdowns.

Join us today and help us take a byte out of the digital divide in Wiltshire

We work with any size business, from solo traders to large corporate businesses to source unwanted laptops, raise funds and create awareness.

We’re now offering a business hive support package to help you get the most out of your contribution to this project.

#donateyourdigital

For any businesses wanting to get involved, we offer a free certified secure wipe service to businesses with more than 20 laptops to donate.

All hardware is audited and catalogued on arrival at the Priority IT offices and we recommend a Data Secure Wipe for HMG Infosec Standard 5 Enhanced.

We can, however, securely wipe to a number of standards as required. On completion, you will receive a statement of works, detailing the number of storage devices arrived, storage device wiped, standard of secure erasure and a certificate per storage device.

If a machine wouldn’t be able to support the needs of the user after upgrading, we will instead remove all reusable parts and recycle the rest with our recycling partners at Blackmore Ricotech, so nothing goes to waste.

Bee the difference

Whilst we give our time for free, we are always looking for funding to help pay for parts.

The parts required to upgrade a machine include replacing of the hard drive, memory, Wi-Fi modules, and, if needed, we will replace faulty components such as keyboards, screens, and chargers.

We have a number of business packages from one off donations to monthly and yearly gifting schemes. We’d greatly appreciate if you could consider choosing the Wiltshire Digital Drive as your Charity of the year, if your organisation supports such schemes.

Making a buzz

As part of our business hive support package we offer communications and public relations assistance, so that we can make a big buzz about your contribution.

Not only that, we have a number of assets that you can use on your website, blog, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, or any other social media accounts.
