Commitment to Black Economic Empowerment
For DG, transformation goes far beyond mere compliance with B-BBEE codes; it is a business and moral imperative that resonates within every part of our organisation. As such, we are fully committed to making a significant contribution to the transformation of the ICT industry in South Africa, and this is evidenced by our compliance with the requirements of the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice and our continued investment into the South African economy.
DG is classified as a Black Women Owned Company and is 51.67% Black Owned and 31% Black Women Owned. This status also allows us to deliver maximum B-BBEE scorecard benefits to all for all our business partners and customers.
At DG, we are passionate about enterprise development, equal opportunity, and equitable skills transfer. We invest extensively into small- and medium enterprises and offer learnership programmes aimed at equipping aspiring IT industry professionals from disadvantaged backgrounds with the practical skills they need to forge the careers they desire.
Held to the ISO Standards
The ISO story began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to create a new international organization ‘to facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards’.
On 23 February 1947 the new organization, ISO, officially began operations. Since then, ISO have published over 21932 International Standards covering almost all aspects of technology and manufacturing. Today there are members from 162 countries and 783 technical bodies to take care of standards development.
ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity.
They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.
Digital Generation has proudly achieved the ISO9001 standard to certify our commitment to the highest level of service and sale.
DG enjoys close working relationships with almost 200 global technology manufacturers and suppliers, including leading brands like Acer, Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Samsung and more. We are also an Apple strategic partner through our relationship with Core Distribution, which is the sole Apple distributor in South Africa.
Many of our vendor partnerships go back more than 15 years, which has resulted in a level of trust and reliability that translates to maximum peace of mind for our clients. We are in a position to place orders directly with most manufacturers, ensuring that when you purchase your products or solutions through DG, you get the best possible service and pricing.
