Voice over IP Communication

Previously, if you wanted a telephone system you would have no choice but to invest in an onsite, hardware based service.  This would bring a range of inconveniences: set-up and installation costs, ongoing maintenance, higher operating costs and the actual time from order to implementation.

Cloud telephony turns these inconveniences into conveniences, whilst at the same time benefiting your business in a number of other ways too. Cloud based telephony is quick to set-up, simple to manage, easily enables flexible working and dramatically cuts your overheads and operating costs.

Security and Disaster Recovery

We have established backup and synchronisation solutions that we have used & tested over a number of years & have proven to deliver efficiency and reliability. Other backup solutions extend to Disk, System and partition/Volume cloning that would reduce downtime considerably in the event of a disaster recovery procedure.

This also provides the ability to rebuild existing workstations/servers or deploy new ones in hours instead of days. We can assist you in acquiring your Cyber essential certificate of assurance by scanning your network in order to identify security vulnerabilities.
