about

The workplace is changing. The office still has its place, but work these days is remote, hybrid and mobile. Businesses need technology that reflects the way we work – dynamic, flexible and collaborative. Using the power of the cloud, that is what we deliver. We provide modern communications solutions, high-speed connectivity and cloud-powered security and CCTV.

Our services meet your needs quickly, and on your terms. Based in Sussex, we are experienced telecoms professionals who are passionate about delivering for our customers. This means we have both the knowledge and commitment to do what is right for you. From your first consultation to installation and service, we are responsive and put customers first.

Solutions

Business communication has changed a lot, but the phone call remains a vital part of the customer experience you offer. We offer a full range of voice solutions to suit the needs of your business and your customers. From SIP trunking to feature-rich phone systems, we can build and deploy a robust, efficient telephony infrastructure to keep you connected at all times.
As more and more work is done online, reliable, rapid connectivity is a must in modern business. We offer a range of solutions, from FTTP to Ethernet. Our broadband experts consult you and tailor the solution to your business based on what is available in your area. We will make sure you have the bandwidth and speeds you need.
Business mobiles are essential for keeping roaming workers connected. But there is a lot of choice when it comes to tariffs and handsets, and a lot of admin involved in monitoring usage. Our mobile experts will make it easy. Your named account manager will make sure you have the right devices, network and tariff for your business, so you’re not over-paying.
The physical security of your business is paramount. From high-quality CCTV cameras to access control, we offer a range of security solutions to keep you, your business and your team safe. Thanks to the breadth of options and our expertise, we can meet a huge range of security needs for offices, car parks, warehouses and other settings. Our security services are all hosted on the cloud. This makes for easy management, and allows you to access it from anywhere.
In the age of hybrid work, collaboration has to work across locations. We make that easy, with video, voice and instant messaging on one unified communications platform. From quick check-ins to scheduled videoconferences, everything is a click away, giving you the ability to collaborate from anywhere.
We offer high-performance, multi-channel contact centre solutions to help you bring customer service to new heights. Whether it is voice, video, SMS, instant messenger or email, you can connect with customers according to their preference – and all on one platform. This increases your efficiency along with customer satisfaction. Our cloud-hosted contact centre solutions are rapidly scalable, and offer high availability and resilience.
