Telecoms Partners

 After meeting Dave Hamilton, the Select Lifestyles team “haven’t looked back”. The organisation was in search of a local telecommunications company who they could rely on.

Managing Telecoms network across multiple sites

Our working relationship began with helping Select Lifestyles with telephone lines which were out of contract and they were in search local Birmingham telecommunications specialist.

Following this, we were invited to install a business telephone system when they relocated their head office. Through collaborating with Select Lifestyle’s IT Consultants, we have built a bespoke telecoms infrastructure.

Broadband and WiFi connectivity have been installed in all sites across the West Midlands, enabling staff and service users to safely access the internet.

Our team manage and maintain the telephone systems and network, providing regular support to enable the smooth day-to-day operation of the organisation.


Saving time and money

“Working with Telecom Central has saved us weeks of time over the years, having regular communication about our changing needs and growth of the organisation.

“We feel confident to leave everything with Dave and his team, for them to guide and advise us. The simplicity and ease of dealing with Telecom Central is unbelievable given the challenges we have had with BT in the past.

“The rapport we have with the Helpdesk team is great and they are more like an internal department than and external supplier.”
