The Digital Processing Systems – DPS story started in 2016 when two Italians Quinto and Fabrizio met with Peter and Mungai both Kenyans, for nyama choma and drinks at a Nairobi restaurant one Friday evening. The Italians had a long and strong history in the printing industry in Europe and particularly in Italy where they have been in the business for almost 40 years, while the Kenyans had been in the office supplies and business development industries in Eastern Africa for more than 30 years. The four individuals soon realized that they shared a common passion, which was
“a strong yearning to deliver excellent customer value and market leadership faster and better by applying modern, proven technology, techniques and tools to the business.”
At some point Quinto remarked that at his printing firm in Italy,
“every single employee still has a name and a surname, a family and a story to tell, just as our customers do” an ethos that has now become Standard Operating Procedure at DPS in Kenya.
With their strong and common passion, the team of four men soon agreed on two key issues:
- That from a management point of view, the cost of running an organization is always a key focal point that often has a major bearing on achieving winning results for the organization.
- That the quality of the inputs, products and services used is equally important for continued and successful accomplishments.
With this focus in mind, the businessmen decided to set up DPS in Nairobi where they would combine technology with top notch service delivery in order to provide the market with excellent printing solutions. These solutions would be channeled in effectively and efficiently meeting the clients’ needs while maintaining their costs at optimal levels.
“Solutions would be effectively and efficiently channeled meeting the clients’ needs while maintaining their costs at optimal levels…”
