5 things you can do to ensure your office telecoms run smoothly

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

1. Know your set up.  Make sure the key people in your office know the general set up of your telecoms. How many lines, what type of lines, who is the provider. Document the information and keep it by the system, it will save time when you need to report a fault.

2. Plan for downtime. Whether it be a faulty hand piece or a complete system failure, make sure you have some technical back up in place. Disasters never come at a convenient time and can cause major disruption to your business.

3. Take time to check what you are paying for.  It is easy to carry on paying for equipment or services that you no longer use.  Look into the types of calls you make on a regular basis, make sure you are getting the best rate for these calls.  A little audit can result in big savings.

4. Give your staff some training.  Make sure everyone knows how to use the features on the system.  Being able to utilise the equipment fully will help your staff work more efficiently.

5. Look after your system, a little preventative care goes a long way.  It’s a major part of your business, so give it some TLC.

The Perfect Packed Lunch

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

It has always been important to Telcare to support the local community, especially within the education sector. Over the years we have been involved in many school events which has generally been at senior school level, so when the opportunity was presented to us to sponsor this competition aimed at primary school children, we were delighted to help out.

The Perfect Packed Lunch is a competition organised by the Kent Messenger and is open to primary schools across Kent. The children have the chance to have their creative writing and artwork put on display at the Turner Contemporary Gallery by entering the Perfect Packed Lunch Awards.
Telcare is playing a leading role in the event which asks children to devise either a genuine or imaginary packed lunch and then draw a picture of their meal and think through what makes it special.

“Telcare are thrilled to support the KM’s ‘Perfect Packed Lunch’ project”, said Director, Lisa Settle, “We assist many schools in Kent with the management of their telecoms so it’s great to be able to help on another level.” Lisa added “it will be exciting to give a helping hand to the younger students for a change, I’m really looking forward to judging the entries.”

Every entry will be turned into an online recipe card displaying the work of the child entrant. Judges will pick the winners and invite them to an awards ceremony at the prestigious Turner Contemporary Gallery, Margate, Kent where their work will go on display.
