How much do you rely on your office telephone system? If you arrived at the office one morning and found that the phones were dead, would you know who to call?

Fortunately complete downtime is fairly uncommon but it does occur. Faults never happen at a convenient time, disruption can be caused by the most minor of faults. Without maintenance you may find that you have to ring around frantically trying to arrange support. This can take up precious time and possibly lose you business.

Here at Telcare we maintain Unify (formerly known as Siemens) Telephone Systems, but please do feel free to give us a call if you have another type of system, we will be happy to point you in the right direction.

In the meantime here’s some information to get you started:

  • Our contracts are available for a minimum of one year
  • Discounts are available if you wish to increase the term of the contract to three years or more.
  • Renewal paperwork is activated prior to the renewal date and payment by this date will ensure continued cover
  • Notice to terminate the agreement is 60 days prior to the expiration date

“We recently signed up with Telcare to manage our phone system as we were experiencing problems with our previous provider.  We wanted a service that was more personal and tailored to our needs without having to deal with a foreign call centre or being stuck on hold for long periods of time.  The team at Telcare have exceeded our expectations by providing us with excellent customer service.  They are always happy to help with our queries, one phone call and the problem is either resolved or we have someone attend site to sort it out for us.  Our previous provider used terminology that was difficult to understand but thankfully Telcare had the patience to fully explain everything in a user friendly way.
